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.Posted at 6:22 AM to Base Paths
