W. G. Grace: A Cricketer You Could Like

From reader Mike W:

W.G. Grace might be a cricketer you could like. He was once bowled (ball hit the stumps dislodging the bails) and he picked the bails up, put them back on the stumps, and continued his innings. Legend has it he told the umpire that the crowd had "come to see me bat, not you umpire."
