Juan Marichal Quotes

Those days were very tough... All my teammates are white and it was a different time. At times when we traveled, I couldn't go out to eat with the white players; I had to wait until someone brought something out to the bus. We couldn't stay in the same hotels or live in a different neighborhood.

You had to pitch in and out. The zone didn't belong to the hitters; it belonged to the pitchers. Today, if you pitch too far inside, the umpire would stop you right there. I don't think it's fair.

Quotes About Juan Marichal

The foot's up in your face, and that's bad. Then he comes through like a fullback chargin. He lunges off the hill. Sometimes he even stumbles from the force of his delivery. With all that confusion of motion it's a problem seeing the ball. But his control is a bigger thing. He can throw all day within a two-inch space, in, out, up or down. I've never seen anyone as good as that.

Hank Aaron

If you placed all the pitchers in the history of the game behind a transparent curtain, where only a silhoutte was visible, Juan's motion would be the easiest to identify. He brought to the mound beauty, individuality and class. - Bob Stevens
