"Back in 1933, when no one had ever heard of 'sliders' as such, a young fellow named Johnny Babich, pitching for the San Francisco Missions had a sensational 20-game first year winning record on what now probably would be classed as a slider, but then, in lieu of any other name for it, was called 'Babich's sailer.'
