In Baseball Suit
Bert Campaneris, I salute you.
Who's Bert Campaneris, you ask. Is he the doctor who woke
up a cat's brain after it was technically dead for 203 days? No, of
course not. Is he the policeman who ticketed the mayor's car for
parking in a space designated "No Parking 2 A.M. to 5 A.M. Tues.,
Thurs. and Sat." Shucks, no. Is he the only guy in the world who
picked the Pittsburgh Pirates to win the pennant in May? Nah.
Well, who the hell is he, then, funny boy?
Bert Campaneris is Renaissance Man in a baseball suit.
Speak English, man, if you don't mind.
Bert (Campy) Campaneris played all nine positions in one
game Wednesday night for the Kansas City Athletics as they
lost to the California Angels. To top it off, Campy, playing
catcher in the ninth got whacked in the head by a baserunner
and had to go to the hospital for precautionary X-rays.E
So what. Who cares if some nutty ballplayer plays every position
in the park. All it got him was a conk on the bean, anyway,.
But don't you see the symbolism. The game was a modern al-
legory, a microcosm of life.
Look out now, the philosopher in him is leaking out. OK
Bertrand, baby, let's hear the jazz. I know it's coming.
Campy Campaneris defied the trend of our century. "Special-
ize, maJor, do one thing well, and chuck the rest," is the big
line of the. times. Gradschoolitus. Seventh-century Turkish
andiron makers, that's what I'll do my doctoral thesis on.
Campy Campaneris is the generalist. Sure, he spreads himself
a bit thin. He's not as good a pitcher as he is a second baseman,
but he goes at everything with the same zest and excitement. There's
the same zing whether he's picking up a bunt or throwing a curve.
And Campeneris got smashed in the ninth. What could have
been more poetic. The eccentric, the unusual, the wild, caught it
between the eyes from a clumsy rookie baserunner. California, the
establishment, the IBMs, the specialized mass conglomeration ganged
up on him and knocked him out.
But Campy will be back. Right field, shortstop, first base, catcher,
and pitcher will all be his again. The generalist keeps bobbing up
to take charge if you just give him a chance.
Jack of all trades, but master of none? Maybe. But I'll take
it over the platoons any day. Give me the wide man. You take
the engineer who can barely scrawl his name, much less compose
Bert Campaneris, I salute you.

First of the Big Ten opponents
for the defending champion Mich-
igan gridders this season will be
perennial across-state rival, the
Michigan State Spartans.
The Maize and Blue will tangle
with the Green and White of
State on Oct. 9. Last year, the
Spartans dropped a 17-10 contest
to the Wolverines en route to
posting a 3-3 won-lost mark and
a sixth-place finish in the con-
