Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"(Ewell) Blackwell perhaps isn't as fast as (Bob) Feller was in his prime. Maybe not even as fast as (Hal) Newhouser at his best. But he IS fast, he has an exceptional sidearm sinker and, most of all, he has a contortionist motion that baffles the best hitters." - Baseball Digest (September 1947, Harold Sheldon)
