SABR Biography

Walter Johnson quotes:
  • "I throw as hard as I can when I think I have to throw as hard as I can."
  • "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."
