As inventive as journalists were, they could not match Satchel’s own poetry. His philosophy of pitching, he explained, was that “it ain’t so much how hard you throw, it’s why and where.” At times he was a Zen master, at other times, a court jester. “Bases on balls,” he intoned, “is the curse of the nation.” So “throw strikes at all times. Unless you don’t want to.”
~Satchel, Larry Tye
