... The pitch does not put great strain on a player’s arm, so specialists can set records for endurance. Barney Schultz pitched in nine straight games for the Chicago Cubs. Wilbur Wood threw 376 2/3 innings for the White Sox in 1972, a mark that will probably never be broken. Hoyt Wilhelm, the first relief pitcher to make the Hall of Fame, was burying batters at age 49. 

There’s something heartening, even heroic, about these “scrap heap guys” who find a way to stay in the majors and stymie the stars. And they have the calluses on their fingertips to prove it.
