"He didn't have a curve. All he had was a fastball. Everybody knew what they were going to hit at, but they still couldn't hit him. He was fabulous."
...Doc Cramer, Philadelphia Athletics and Boston Red Sox teammate.

"He had incredible speed, amassed enormous strikout total and pitched his way into the Hall of Fame. Hitting off him was like asking to be blindfolded and then trying to swing an ax handle to hit a lump of coal in the darkness of midnight."
...John Steadman, Baltimore Sun, Sept 22, 1996.
