(Bob) Feller isn't quite as fast as I was.
I was the greenest rookie that ever was. One evening I was standing out on the sidewalk when a stranger approached and said, 'You're famous already kid. See, they've named a hotel for you.' I looked across the street and sure enough, there was a big illuminated sign that read 'Johnson Hotel.' Well, do you know that I was so green that I actually believed the man!
Nobody saw it, he (Rogers Hornsby) hit it and it disappeared.
You can't hit what you can't see.
Can I throw harder than Joe Wood? Listen mister, no man alive can throw any harder than Smoky Joe Wood.
The beanball is one of the meanest things on Earth and no decent fellow would use it. The beanball is a potential murderer. If I were a batter and thought the pitcher really tried to bean me, I'd be inclined to wait for him outside the park with a baseball bat.
I throw as hard as I can when I think I have to throw as hard as I can.
