April 21, 1969
?Jim Frey, Baltimore Oriole scout, on the pitchers' underground: "Hitters just don't watch pitchers enough. If a hitter would keep a book on pitchers, on who threw what and where, he'd rate a picture and a three-page story in The Sporting News. But pitchers do that all the time and they spread the news. If Max Alvis singles on a low, outside slider on the West Coast Tuesday night, they know it in Boston the next morning."
