Maybe so, but I can vouch that even in the mid 60s Con Dempsey was strong as an ox as I once saw him in anger pick up a classmate by the neck with one hand. I could never in my entire life do that. He definitely had the height, long arms and strength to be a pitcher. Maybe he had some weakness that the coaches couldn't figure out how to fix.

In any case, I think we would all be interested in knowing if the 50s Giannini was the same as I described of the 60s.
