"We had some great times and some great ballplayers in Brooklyn back in those days. Pitchers? Give me Whitlow Wyatt. Hw was always one of my heroes. He was nice to me when I was a rookie at Clearwater (Florida) in '39. What did he do? He said hello to me. That was a rare thing for a rookie to hear from a veteran in those days. And he worked hard and was dedicated and felt the same way I did about baseball. If I could sculpt a statue of what a pitcher should look like, for form and grace and style, it would would look like Whitlow Wyatt." - Pete Reiser in Baseball When the Grass Was Real: Baseball from the Twenties to the Forties, Told by the Men Who Played It (Donald Honig, Bison Books, Pete Reiser , 09/01/1993, Page 305)
