Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He (Jack Coombs) has mastered the greatest of all pitching assets, the drop ball that does not break from the right-handed batters. I don't mean one of those outdrops, but a ball that comes up to the plate squarely in the center and falls from one to two feet without changing its lateral direction." - Malachi Kittredge in The National Game (Alfred H. Spink, 2000)
