"That there is such a thing as a jump ball I believe is universally conceded, but like other pitchers I am dask as to its cause. I am positive that it exists, for I have been able to get it myself, and I have batted against other pitchers whom, I am sure, possessed it. George Cuppy, the famous Cleveland pitcher, for example, was one man whose whole success was due to the jump ball." - Author John by Foster in How to Pitch (1908)
