Wikipedia: Danny Ozark
Daniel Leonard Ozark, born Daniel Leonard Orzechowski (November 24, 1923 — May 7, 2009) was an American coach and manager in Major League Baseball. As manager of the Philadelphia Phillies (1973 through August 31, 1979), Ozark led the Phils to three consecutive National League East Division championships (1976-77-78), but each year his team fell in the National League Championship Series.

Wikipedia: Mike Anderson (outfielder)
Michael Allen Anderson (born June 22, 1951 in Florence, South Carolina) is a former outfielder in Major League Baseball who played for the Philadelphia Phillies (1971–75, 1979), St. Louis Cardinals (1976–77) and Baltimore Orioles (1978).

30 December 1975, Press-Telegram (Long Beach, CA), “Hollingworth,” pg. C-5, col. 1:
Philadelphia manager Danny Ozark (on his rightfielder)—“Mike Anderson’s limitations are limitless.”

10 February 1977, Trenton (NJ) Times, “Whathesay?” by Bus Saidt, pg. D1, col. 1:
Danny Ozark’s Phillies did not quite succeed in winning the National League championship last year, but the manager clearly has no intention of surrendering his unchallenged championship as “master manager-malaproprist in baseball”.

The language-mangler, who gave you such dandies as “we’re leaving no leaf unturned” and “morality is no issue on this club” as well as “Mike Anderson’s limitations are limitless”, came up with this gem at yesterday’s Phillies’ press caravan conference.

3 June 1979, San Diego (CA) Union, “Let’s Hear It For The Local Boy” by Wayne Lockwood, pg. H-2, col. 1:
“His limitations are limitless,” Ozark once judged of a Philadelphia player.

OZARK ERR LINES Like Berra pere, Danny Ozark was a manager whose errors were considered less tactical than syntactical:

‘’Mike Anderson’s limitations are limitless.’’ (On his rightfielder with the Phillies.)
