Try to understand your men. Know their abilities, and know when to change pitchers.
I never threw a "heavy" ball. My pitch started just above my head and leg to about my shoulders. I most used fastballs and a change of pace. My control was good, so when I used a curve it would break right around the man's knees. I never used no freak balls, less I seen the other feller doing it. Then I might take a piece of emery and rub a spot on the ball about the size of a dime. That pitch would do tricks. Did I use that pitch every game, I'd never have lost. Not once. Once in a while I tried a knuckler, but no spitter. I just didn't like that pitch. I pitched a lot of good ball in my time. I'da been in the majors, too, if'n my hair wasn't so curly. Anything but colored, I'da made it. I don't know why it is they give us such a hard time. We all the same really. We all sit on that old common denominator.

All the years I played, I never got a hit off him. He threw fire.
