Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"(Dave) Danforth, if you believe the boys in the dugout, did everything to the ball. The possessor of exceptionally large and strong hands, he is supposed to have loosened the cover of the ball, raised the seams, and sometimes nicked it with a specially sharpened thumb nail so as to make it sail." - Columnist Hugh Bradley in Baseball Magazine (June 1936, Freak Pitching Deliveries - Past and Present)
