Yours is one of the best stories baseball has to tell. We have got to get you in the Hall of Fame. "No one throws faster than Smokey Joe Wood".

I met Joe Wood at his home in New Haven,CT in July of 1980. We had a wonderful chat, sitting on his front porch, shaded by the tall oak trees that lined the street. Our conversation that morning took us back to the days of baseball during the turn of the twentith century with stories about Tris Speaker, Ty Cobb, Sam Crawford,Christy Mathewson and others. I asked "Smoky" Joe how hard he could throw. He said, "Son, there was nobody that could throw any faster." Indeed his rising fastball was second to none. No pitcher has ever had a single season has great as Joe did in 1912; 34-5, 258 strikeouts, 1.91 ERA, 10 shutouts. Joe was a fine gentleman and would have been one of the all-time great pitchers if an arm injury hadn't hampered his career. It was truely my pleasure to have met him that day and still serves as a fine memory.

I hope you and Tris and all your buddies are back together again---playing ball like the good old days. No arm injuries to worry about ever again. I hope to see many, many, games when I get there.

every time i read about your magical season of 1912, i always think "..what if..?? " it was too bad your arm went dead and you didn't string together a few more seasons like it. it was also nice reading what you had to say in the glory of their times book.
