- n. Plural form of scuffer.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
A lot of Negro Leaguers threw spitters and scuffers—but not Satch, at least not usually.
Feller’s men were so perturbed by Neck’s “cheating” spitters and scuffers were outlawed in organized baseball but never banned in blackball that Bob told Satch to dump him from the roster, which Paige promptly did.
