Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Tiny (Bonham) reminds me a good deal of Grover Alexander. His control is so good that the hitters never get a good shot at the ball. He just keeps nicking those corners and mixing 'em up on the batters. Another thing. He pitches fast, like Old Alex." - Joe McCarthy in The Sporting NEws (June 18, 1942)
