Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"If you can run your fastball in on their hands, the pitch can look real good to them at first before it's suddenly too far to get the bat on. But I don't just pitch that way to power hitters. I go at every hitter I face that way. You've got to establish yourself. It doesn't matter who's hitting. If they're crowding the plate, you need to back them away. I would never, ever condone throwing at a batter but you need to put the pitch in a spot where the batter is forced to forget swinging so that he can get out of the way. Pitching inside means going in close enough to mess up their swing but also making the pitch good enough that it looks like a strike." - Bob Cunningham in Baseball Digest (Aug. 1994, 'Bust 'em Inside, A Big Key to Successful Pitching', Page 21)
