Addie JOSS (HOF)


John J. McGraw says: “Addie Joss was another of the star pitchers of the American League along with Johnson. He was what ball players knew as a thinking pitcher. Joss was very tall and had such an easy motion that he could keep the ball on top of the batter all the time without the latter realizing that he was being fooled. Against Joss the ordinary batter was always on the defensive instead of the offensive. He knew the weaknesses of his opponents and played them as a cat would a mouse. Addie Joss was indeed a great pitcher. He was one of the best-loved men in the game. Sadly enough, he died while still quite young.”
