down off her perch and giving me
the lowdown on her true love and
his capers.
The Tale of Fame
It seems that she is hailing
from Baltimore, and during such
time as J. J. was cavorting around
Buzzards Pernt and Havre De Gras
in the Oriole City, he was man
handling a lot of pitchers and
players alike with these same Bal
timore Orioles. Comes a nice bright,
sunny day like you read about and
have to wait all winter to see out
her (there I go agairf; glad no
body heard me) John ups and
meets Mary Blanche Sindall and
begins paying a lot more respects
to her than he does to a supposed
somewhat respectable pitching
and batting average.
Of course the coach and the fans
don’t like this kind of action and
decide that something has gotta
be done about this situation or
the Orioles will go to pot. So they
become Mr. and Mrs., and John
starts eating regularly. That in it
self is worth all the trouble to
J. J., so he decides to keep up the
common people's morale, and hit at
least 250.
Soon, it might as well he
spring again, anil Mac finds
himself up in faster company
with some Giants in the Na
tional League, and he finds
that he can function just'as
well there, so he does. He ain’t
sceered. Blit, what does he do
then? He ups and writes snafu
on his career as a chuclcer and
lights out as a manager for
these same Giants from New
How It Happened
This kind of action is right down
his alley, and he decides to make
the other element do all of the
playing and he would play around,
which would mean that he would
see that they maintained train
ing schedules, and he would go
out and slop up all of the good
drinking liquor on Collins Avenue
in Miami Beach. So one fine day
he is drinking up a gob of "brew
and sundry other potent tonics
and the bartender, a joik named
Joe, daubs his finery with some
choice spirits.
Of course, this don’t make J. J.
feel any more tranquil, so he hangs
a. couple on the kisser of this Joe
and calls him “Sloppy Joe.” Now
it comes to pass that this moniker
sticks fast to Joe, like a greaser
with a couple of iron men in his
jeans, and the mob starts calling
him this and that as usual, but
“Sloppy Joe” with added vigor.
This Joe becomes one of Miami’s
outstanding citizens and makes
for better drinks with umbrellas
attached for effect.
Along about this time Mc
Graw is having all his lticks
with his team and has such
worthys as Christy Mathewson
hanging around with nothing
else to do but win games,
knowing, naturally, that Mrs.
J. has to have sufficience to

feed John, so he plays along-.
He also does same on account
of he can’t find a likely spot
to hang his hat and he can’t
think of a better platz than
that of the McGraws, which
ir\akes for two more plates at
the table.
So getting fed up with oranges
anrl the horses they meander
northward from spring to spring
to try their luck at keeping the
Giants on the front page and the
turnstiles clicking with added
fervor. By this time he ain't get
ting any younger, and is finding
his health a little bit impaired,
which ain't good for the manage
ment. because it's strictly a bother
to go around looking for new
managers every 15 years. But
John has an ace in the hole. He
is protegeying a slightly built
operator from the port side named
Melvin “I started playing ball at
an early age of 16” Ott. He is
telling this Ott all he knows and
supporting him at the same time,
which is like making for old age
insurance, and Ott takes it,
whether he likes it or not. He don't
want to know nothing else.
McGraw Passes
Around 1934, John J. McGraw,
the venerable old man of baseball,
passes away amid the fanfare of
his beloved players, fans and co
horts, and I can’t imagine a longer
procession that could ever have
been had by a luminary at a
funeral than what was had by this
tops in men and athletes. It was
strictly there. He was as fine as
is the game of baseball, the na
tional game of our United States.
Concluding this masterpiece
for us, the Mrs. started un
loading a tear or two, cut in
with a charming, “Dig youse
later, men,” and meandered off
to the, showers. Finding that
type of atmosphere just a little
showy for our affected natures,
we, having a prior engage
ment with an operator, we ex
cuse ourselves and cut on down
to the avenue of broken dreams
and broken bottles, and have
since then and forever held
our peace.
That’s the way it goes. Speak
ing of “Around the Clock,” there
is a certain ditty on a record under
that same misnomer, and if you
haven’t dug that action, by all
means do, because it is really solid.
I’ll be seeing youse next toim with
the column, and an additional
“Duketracks,” if you can stand
it . . .

Next Year's Chances

former lettermen who will re-enter
