Koufax

Sandy Koufax retired with an excruciatingly painful pitching arm by the time I became aware of baseball so I never got to see him pitch live. I've seen film and video of him and he looked downright over-powering. I also remember seeing postgame interviews with him with huge ice packs icing down his inflamed elbow and shoulder.

I was lucky to see Koufax in his prime. Sometimes batters would buckle at his curve and then be frozen by his fastball. They would just turn and walk to the dugout shaking their heads. he was truly the "Artful Dodger".
