John J. McGraw says: “[Ed Walsh] was easily the most famous and effective of all the spitball pitchers. While with the White Sox Ed was practically invincible. A big factor in his value to a ball club was his marvelous endurance. He could have pitched every day if it had been necessary. Aside from his spitball Walsh had tremendous speed and splendid control. It was the clever pitching of Walsh, day after day, that enabled the White Sox, then called the “hitless wonders,” to win the American League pennant and to beat out the Cubs in the World’s Series that followed in Chicago.”
