Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"What helped me, more than anything else, to alter my style was when they put me in the bullpen. I didn't think that was something I could do, because I didn't think my arm would let me throw every day, enough where I could pitch in the bullpen. But it did, and then I could throw hard for one inning. I pitched inside all my career, and I liked to throw the ball on the knuckles." - Woodie Fryman Interview (SABR Oral History Committee Member Dan DiNardo, 08/1991)
