"And Cincinnati had an old reliever named Bill Henry. He was tough. I used to say, I kept him in the league for an extra four or five years. He had a very unorthodox delivery with a high kick. He threw his pitches at two or three different angles, and he had good control." - Hall of Famer Eddie Mathews in Splendor on the Diamond (Rich Westcott, 2000, Page 73)
