Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"The secret of (Sam) Gray's success is still something of a debatable problem. Ira Thomas says that he can do things to a fast ball that nobody else can do. His fast ball seems to sail and breaks in an opposite direction from most fast balls." - Sportswriter F.C. Lane in Baseball Magazine (May 1926)
