Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"It makes me smile when I remember what they used to say about the spitter in the old days and the havoc it would wreck on a pitcher's elbow and shoulder. Really it's the easiest ball in the world to pitch, far easier than the curve, less trying to the arm then the fast ball, which is supposed to be the most natural of all deliveries." - Bill Doak in Baseball Magazine (March 1928)
