Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"His name synonymous with those of Allie Reynolds and Eddie Lopat — the other two members of the Yankees ' Big Three — Vic Raschi anchored a starting rotation that helped lead New York to five consecutive world championships from 1949 to 1953. Known for his blazing fastball and tremendous determination, Raschi won 21 games for the Yankees three straight times, compiling an exceptional overall record of 120-50 during his eight years in pinstripes. The hard-throwing right-hander's .706 winning percentage places him sixth in team history, and his 24 shutouts rank him in the club's all-time top 10. An outstanding big game pitcher, Raschi posted a 5-3 record and a 2.24 ERA in World Series place, completing three of his eight starts, tossing a 2-hit shutout in one contest, and allowing just 1 run on 3 hits in another." - Author Robert W. Cohen in The 50 Greatest Players in New York Yankees History (Scarecrow Press, #43. Vic Ranchi , 06/16/2003, Page 225)
