Meet Greg Maddux

Greg Maddux doesn't look like a great pitcher. He isn't tall or powerful. But Greg works magic with a cool head and pinpoint control. He gives hitters fits. They shake their heads on the way back to the dugout after Greg makes them look bad.

"There are only two things you have to do to pitch well," Greg says. "Throw your fastball in the right place and change the speed of your pitches."

Greg's smart pitching has helped him win the Cy Young Award four times.
