Nap Rucker


John J. McGraw says: “I have included Rucker [on the All-Time team] because of his greatness in the National League during the period of its greatest growth. He never played in any other league. Rucker was easily the greatest slow-ball pitcher that I have ever seen. He relied on that tantalizing floater almost solely in critical moments. Occasionally he would serve a swifter ball, but even that was only a half-speed delivery—just enough to be a foil for his teasers.”
