"That kid is great. I wish we had him. He has got a fast ball! Say, he's faster than (Bob) Feller, and maybe faster than any pitcher in the league. What a future! Just a little more control and a polishing up on pitches other than his fast ball, and he will be a pip!" - Hall of Fame Manager Joe McCarthy (Unidentified Hall of Fame clipping, 05/25/1938)
