Jim Busby, Major League Centerfielder, 1950-1962. Busby was a fleet footed centerfielder who led the league in putouts for three straight years. While playing for the Washington Senators, Busby made this quote in a March 30, 1955 issue of 'The Sporting News'. Busby said this about Mickey Mantle, New York Yankee Superstar, "He's the strongest hitter in the game. He's the only one who hits the ball so hard, he knocks the spin off it. Catching a liner from him is like catching a knuckleball. It flutters all over."
