"Shadowing the ball, which was an art in the former days, is almost lost. A few pitchers try it, but without the skills of Bert Cunningham, Mattie Kilroy, Willie McGill ad many others of the old school. Shadowing consists of the pitcher sidestepping and placing his body on the line of the batter's vision, so that the ball has no background except the pitcher's body and the batter cannot see it plainly until the ball is almost upon him." - Author Hugh S. Fullerton in Touching Second (John J. Evers & Hugh S. Fullerton, 1910)
