The name of this blog being what it is, I feel obligated to link to articles I find about Dazzy Vance. Chad Dotson wrote a good one in January for Hardball Times about the Dodger pitching great.
You’ll find out, among other things:
How does Vance rank with other pitchers in their age 30-39 seasons?
How did Vance get from the New Orleans Hornets to the Brooklyn Dodgers?
Why was Vance so hard to hit on Mondays?
Dotson also does a good job of telling the story of Vance’s improbable rise from sore-armed journeyman to Brooklyn ace.
