Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"My pitching stock consisted mainly in speed. I threw some curves, but I never knew about such things as a spitball, a fadeaway, shine ball and all these tricks. You simply had to be a Colossus to stand the gaff." - Silver King in Nineteenth Century Stars (Bob Tiemann, 1989)
