Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"In the Cubs's relatively small field with encroaching bleacher seats, the pitcher had to guard particularly against a fluky home run. A curve is less likely to be changed into a homer than a fastball. When I came to Pittsburgh, however, with a larger field to navigate, I found it advisable to depend more upon my fastball." - Vic Aldridge in Baseball Magazine (1925)
