Casey Stengel on Patsy Flaherty: "He took no windup and you never knew when he was going to throw the ball. A master of quick pitches. There was no rule forcing pitchers to come to a full stop. Patsy picks up the ball and you hear the umpire holler strike. The quick no-windup pitch is called a Patsy Flaherty. As I was digging in I had no idea the man was ready to pitch."[1]
