Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He (Johnny Cooney) would start his wind up, then, in the act of hurling the ball, pause a fraction of a second before letting go of the sphere. This, when properly done, would throw the batters off balance. However, batters study pitchers and when one of their hereditary enemies upon the slab invents a freak variation like Cooney's specialty, they learn to watch for it. In baseball the expected play is already half defeated." - John J. Ward in Baseball Magazine (April 1927)
