"(Rube) Marquard has a good, fast waist-high ball for the right-hand sluggers. (Dan) Griner, the new St. Louis pitcher, has the same slant for right-handers and can also throw it to a left-handed hitter - a trick nobody else seems to possess, and one which makes this Griner a far better pitcher than many critics have imagined." - Baseball Magazine (August 1913)
