The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

And he fields, too

Bugs pitched only one game (in 1946) at the Polo Grounds, and it wasn't a complete game at that — he came on in the fifth inning — but contemporary research suggests a speed of at least 150 mph (!) for his "powerful, paralyzing, perfect, pachydermous percussion pitch."

I consider myself indeed fortunate to have witnessed this event, albeit after the fact, on film.
