The Secret of Real Ball Pitching – Strength Magazine – July, 1925

The art of pitching is not confined solely to the ability to throw a fast ball with tremendous speed, a curve with a “break” that is sharp. A certain major league manager who but recently parted with a fortune for a minor league star was soliloquizing. If this star from the bushes produced in the majors anything like the way he did in the minors, a whole pennant race might be upset. He would bring back several times over the fortune that was spent to get him.
