I think ball clubs rather have a dominant pitcher for 3-5 years, than to have a mediocre pitcher for 10-15 years. If a pitcher busted his elbow or shoulder, they can always call up young arms from the farm system to replace him. So as long as there is no shortage of young and willing arms, who cares about the health of major league pitchers?

as others have mentioned, the ball looks really easy to pick up. you might even be able to recognize the pitch before it's thrown. and i wasn't exactly impressed with those breaking pitches. the curve looked like a garbage 12-6 gopher ball. and the screwball just looked like a spinner. in my maybe incorrect opinion, it's the unnatural torquing of the body that generates break on pitches.
Dr. Marshall used this knowledge to set numerous major league records, including the four most prestigious closer relief pitching records.
1. Most appearances - 106
2. Most closing innings pitched - 208
3. Most consecutive appearances - 13
4. Most games finished - 84

I'm pretty sure saves were not invented back then. I think they were introduced in the nineties.
