Kiki Cuyler was known as the fastest player in MLB in the late 20's and early 30's. When he was about 40 or so he had a son who wanted to take a try at playing ball. Kiki didn't think that it was a good idea and couldn't convince him otherwise. So he made him a deal, they would have a foot race and if the son lost he'd give up the dream and get on with his life.
Apparently Kiki smoked his arse, by about 15 yards or so.
He had told his son prior, I had to quit playing because I was not as fast as once was.
Harold Cuyler moved on.
