Catfish Hunter

Catfish Hunter“His stuff is not overpowering,but he has wonderful control and great pitching instincts. If he needs to get his fastball high and outside or low and inside, he can put it there. He has the same control of his breaking stuff. He instinctively knows how to pitch to hitters.”
Cot Deal, Hunter’s first pitching coach in the major leagues
