Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He (General Crowder) had a fast ball that didn't look fast. What it had after Crowder came out of his lazy delivery was considerable 'sneak.' And what Crowder had otherwise was considerable shrewdness and a motion to first base that discouraged base stealers." - Author Shirley Povich in The Washington Senators (Shirley Povich, 1954)
