SPORTSCRIBBLES
By ARCHIE PARSONS
FOR TEN YEARS I have awaited this opportunity.
Yes, being, of all things, a New York Giant fan, I have had
to wait ten years, since the-Giants last won a pennant way back in
dim, dark New Deal Age, to open my mouth concerning baseball
in any way, shape, or form.
For the first seven of those years, I lived within rock-throwing
distance of a building called the Yankee Stadium-and you can take
me literally on that rock-throwing. I slunk around corners and hid
in alleys to dodge the jibes of that cruel breed of Man known as the
Yankee Fan.
FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS I have lived within the lair of the
Detroit Tiger, and I can say one thing for the Tiger fan-he never
said a word to me-but perhaps that's because they never heard of the
National League out here.
I have even had to suffer under a managing editor, who is,
God help him, an Athletic fan. Even he would not speak to me,
and I had to fight tooth and nail for the few pennies they throw
my way on payday here.
Today, at. long last, I can begin to sound off just a little. Mind
you now, I'm not going overboard on this thing. It's just like a person
who has been dying of thirst-you just can't jump back into things.
BUT. IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, the Giants were picked to
vaccilate between seventh and eighth place this year, and there was
some talk of moving one of the International League teams in to take
their place. However, if you will wander over to another section of
this page you may find something startling. For there, in the Major
League Standings, sit the Giants, one-half game out of first place-
and on July 2.
And if you wander further you will find a little story about
a bunch of guys from the wrong side of the Brooklyn Bridge, who
took a 19-2 shellacking from the same Giants yesterday.
And that is not all. After watching such ballplayers (?) as Dan-
ny Gardella, George Myatt, and Tom Baker (the Giants traded him
to their mortal enemies for Freddy Fitzimmons), to name but a very
few, struggle through this game called Baseball, which was, evidently,
a new experience for them; I can lift up my head again.
MARSHALL, MIZE, AND COOPER- the names have become syn-
onomous with Murder, Atomic Energy, and Hercules. Yes, the
tide has definitely turned. The Murderers' Row has moved across the
Harlem River, and there is no joy in Flatbush. Why, even one De-
troit paper printed their pictures yesterday! I think the captain should
have said, "Yes Kiddies, there is a National League-andleading it in
homers and runs batted in are the three guys above. What's that
word across their chest? Oh yes, that's new too. It stands for some
organization back East. Like the Yankees-you know who the Yankees
are."
And so, if my managing editor does not fire me for this treason,
I am looking forward to a summer with many,more days like yesterday.
And I'll even try to twist my face into a smile the next time I pass a
Tiger fan-for I know how he feels. As for the Athletics-they are a
fine team, a wonderful team-for what else can I say with the editor
filling out that little pink slip?
