"Naturally the hitter is expecting the screwball. They know that's my bread-and-butter pitch. He knows what's coming and I have to stop him, even so. But I have two speeds on the screwball - and once in a while I can throw a fastball past a hitter." - Luis Arroyo in "Late in Close: A History of Relief Pitching (Paul Votano, 2002)

In 1961 , Luis Arroyo was called in from the bullpen a career high sixty-five times, finished-off fifty-four games, won fifteen of them, and finished the season with a 2.19 ERA prompting ( New York Yankees Manager ) Casey Stengel to say, "They say he don’t look much like a pitcher. Then again they say Yogi Berra don't look much like a ballplayer."
