Young’s fastball was the thing of legend. Noted for throwing a “heavy ball” that often bruised and broke the hands of catchers, stories of how catchers tried to protect themselves from the 511 game winner are among the best in sports history. In the era before thickly padded gloves, one of Young’s catchers would protect his catching hand by stuffing thick steaks inside his glove to provide added cushion. Now that’s a serious way to protect against the fastball.
