Juiced Ball (1943)

“Pitchers should have an easier time because they won’t have to get Joe DiMaggio, Johnny Mize and a lot of other guys out. But compensating for this is a juiced-up ball, okayed by the two big leagues, that’s probably the hottest thing ever passed through Commissioner Landis’ office.” Bill Kinney, Rock Island Argus, March 27, 1943, p11
