Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mario Melvin Soto (born July 12, 1956 in Ban, Dominican Republic), is a former Major League pitcher, mostly as a starter, for the Cincinnati Reds from 1977 through 1988. He currently works in the Reds' front office. For most of his career, the Dominican right-hander was essentially a two-pitch pitcher. He possessed a hard fastball (clocked in the low-to-mid 90's) and complemented it with a baffling circle changeup, both thrown from the three-quarters position. Soto's changeup was particularly effective against left-handed hitters. On occasion, Soto would also throw a slider, which he turned to more in the latter stage of his career. He less frequently threw a curveball.show more
