1 quote found searching on Virgil Oliver Trucks

My first Major League game I pitched in Fenway Park in Boston. Johnny Pesky was the leadoff hitter. On my first pitch he singled. Bobby Doerr, the second hitter, hit my first pitch for a double. Ted Williams, the third hitter, hit the first pitch I threw to him for a double. Steve O'Neil, the manager for us, called time, meeting me and our catcher, Bob Swift at the mound. Steve never spoke to me. He said to Bob, "Say Bob, doesn't Virgil have it today?" And Bob answered, "How the hell do I know? I haven't caught a pitch yet."
