• In 1934, Dodger manager Casey Stengel had pitcher Walter Beck replaced in the game. In a temper, Beck threw the ball and it hit the rightfield wall. The Dodger rightfielder had been “resting his eyes” while recovering from a hangover. He heard the ball hit the wall, scooped it up, threw it to second, and then discovered that no one had hit it.

• In the 1940s, Bobo Newsom was batting for the Yankees against White Sox pitcher Joe Haynes. He swung and nicked the ball, which rolled back to the pitcher. Realizing it was useless to even try to run to first base, Bobo headed back to the dugout. But instead of throwing to first, Haynes just stood and watched Bobo walk away. When the crowd began to laugh, Bobo turned and saw the pitcher still had the ball. So he began to stroll towards first base. So did Haynes. He walked a little faster. Haynes did too. Suddenly he broke into a sprint. Haynes began to run, finally lobbing the ball to first base seconds ahead of Bobo.

• Luke Appling went to bat for the White Sox in a game against the Tigers in the 1930s. He hit 14 consecutive foul balls. On the 15th pitch, the disgusted pitcher threw his glove instead of the ball.

• In 1961, Cleveland Indian pitcher Herb Score was hit in the eye by a line drive hit by New York Yankee Gil McDougald. The ball bounced off Score’s head and rolled to first base, where the Cleveland first baseman nabbed it and put the batter out. Score was credited with an assist. • William Kennedy was pitching for Brooklyn in 1897 when the umpire called a close decision against him. Kennedy lost his temper and hurled the baseball at the umpire, intending to smack him in the head. The ball narrowly missed the ump, who called the ball in play. A runner on base scored before the catcher could retrieve the ball. Brooklyn lost the game 2 - 1. • Joe Engel, pitching in Washington, did not do a very good job. The question was not whether his pitches would go over the plate but whether they would stay in the ballpark. Manager Clark Griffith called him to his office one day and informed him he was being sent to Minneapolis. “Who am I being traded for?” Engel asked. “No one,” replied Griffith. “It’s an even trade!” • In 1918, Otis Crandall was pitching for Los Angeles against Salt Lake City. He had a perfect no-hitter going. There were two out in the ninth inning and not a single man had reached base. Then his brother Karl came to bat for Salt Lake. He made a base hit — the only known instance where a no-hitter was broken by the pitcher’s brother. • Bob Fothergill was a big man. He was a good hitter, but he was sensitive about his weight. As Leo Durocher got ready to pitch against him, he called out, “Stop the game!” and approached the umpire. When the ump asked what was wrong, Durocher replied, “Don’t you know the rules?” he asked, pointing at Fothergill. “BOTH those guys can’t bat at the same time!” Fothergill was so angry he couldn’t bat well and struck out. • Ty Cobb, playing for the Detroit Tigers in 1912, was suspended from play when he jumped into the stands and beat up an abusive heckler. His sympathetic teammates went on strike. So the manager advertised for new players to fill in the next day at a game in Philadelphia. This impromptu team went up against the world champion Oakland A’s. The pitcher allowed 25 hits and 7 walks in 8 innings, but did manage to get one strike-out. An infielder was hit in the mouth by a ground ball and lost two teeth. An outfielder was hit on the head by a fly ball. This pick-up team got 4 hits and made 10 errors and the final score was 24 - 2. The next day, the regular team members ended their strike, paid their fines, and went back to work, except for Cobb, who was suspended for 10 days. • Charlie Grimm was managing the losing Chica-

go Cubs. One day he got an excited call from his scout saying that he found a pitcher who struck out 27 men in a row. Only one man had even managed to hit a foul. He asked if he should sign the pitcher. Grimm replied, “Sign up the guy who hit the foul. We’re looking for hitters!” • In 1939, Bob Feller was the best known pitcher in the country, playing for Cleveland. On Mother’s Day, he brought his mother from her Iowa farm to Chicago so she could see him play. A Chicago White Sox batter slugged a foul ball into the stands — where it hit Feller’s mother, knocking her unconscious. • Germany Schaefer was batting against Nick Altrock. There was a man on first. Schaefer swung and missed a fast ball. Then the pitcher, pretending he was getting ready to throw to the batter, let loose with a fast ball to first base, where the runner was leading off. • When he got the ball back, Altrock let fly another scorcher of a fastball. Schaefer got a second strike. He threw down his bat and walked back to the dugout. “Hey,” called the ump, “You’ve only got two strikes!” “No,” replied Schaefer, “It’s three strikes — I swung at that pitch he threw to first base!” • In the early 1900s, Rube Waddell was such a great pitcher that all batters feared him. One day the pitcher on the opposing team got a great idea: if he could tire Waddell out before the game, his pitching would be off. So he challenged Waddell to a pitching contest. Whichever one of them could throw the farthest would win $5. They both showed up before the game and threw the ball as far as they could. Waddell’s throw went farthest. The opposing pitcher challenged him to throw that far again. He did. In fact, he threw the ball that far around 50 times. Convinced that Waddell’s arm would be worn out, the rival pitcher handed over the $5. That afternoon, Waddell struck out 14 batters and his team won handily. As he was walking to the clubhouse, he called out to the other pitcher, “Hey, thanks for the workout this morning. That was swell practice!” • Texas University was up against the Yankees in an exhibition game when Lou Gehrig came up to bat. There were two runners on base and it was three and two for Gehrig. The catcher signaled the pitcher, the pitcher nodded — then threw a straight ball right to home plate. Gehrig sent it clear out of the park. The catcher marched up the pitcher, ranting at him for not paying attention to the signals. “Why did you throw him such a nice pitch?” he yelled. The pitcher was not sorry. “I got to thinking: I’ll never pitch a Big League game and maybe I’ll never get to see a game at the Yankee Stadium, and I sure did want to see Gehrig bust just one!”

We WILL NOT be Undersold!

Women in History:

JACKIE MITCHELL • Jackie Mitchell was born in Tennessee in 1913. Her neighbor, Dazzy Vance, was a pitcher in the minor leagues. Though Jackie was only five, Dazzy taught her basic pitching techniques, and she quickly caught on. Dazzy told her she could become a great ball player. Jackie grew up believing him. • At 16, Jackie played for a women’s team in Chattanooga. At 17, she attended a baseball school in Atlanta, where she was noticed by the owner of the Chattanooga Lookouts, a minor league team. He offered her a contract to play for the 1931 season. The newspapers ran stories about the first woman ever to play in the minor leagues. (However, in 1898, Lizzie Arlington played a single game for Reading, PA, technically making Jackie the second woman in minor league history.) • Meanwhile, the New York Yankees had finished spring training in Florida and were on their way to New York. They stopped in Chattanooga to play the Lookouts in an exhibition game. • The game began before a crowd of 4,000. Reporters, wire services, and a newsreel camera were on hand. The Lookouts’ manager sent Clyde Barfoot out to pitch the first inning. The Yankees’ lead-off batter slugged a double, and their next hitter smacked a single, allowing a run. The manager pulled Barfoot out and sent rookie southpaw Jackie to the mound. The next hitter up at bat was the legendary Babe Ruth. • Jackie’s first pitch was a ball, but the next three pitches were strikes, with Babe taking a useless swing at the first two, and the third dropping across the plate for a strike. Jackie Mitchell struck Babe Ruth out. The crowd went wild! Babe Ruth kicked the dirt, called the umpire nasty names, gave his bat a wild heave, and stomped out to the Yank’s dugout. • But there was still work to be done, for the next batter up was Lou Gehrig. She struck him out on three pitches. Jackie Mitchell had fanned the “Sultan of Swat” and the “Iron Horse” backto-back. The crowd rose to its feet in a lengthy standing ovation. • Jackie pitched to one more batter, allowing a walk, before the manager pulled her out and sent Barfoot in. The Yankees won 14 – 4. • The news spread across the country. Fan mail

poured in. One envelope had no address aside from the words “The Girl Who Struck Out Babe Ruth.” A few days later, the baseball commissioner voided her contract, declaring that women were unfit to play baseball because it was “too strenuous.” In 1952, Major League Baseball formally banned women from contracts, a ban that lasted until 1992. Crushed, Jackie began pitching in exhibition games. At 19, she signed with the House of David, a men’s team famous for their long hair and beards. She traveled with them until 1937, but eventually got tired of the sideshow aspects of her career, such as being asked to wear a fake beard, or playing an inning while riding a donkey. • She retired at 23, but played with local teams. She refused to come out of retirement when the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League formed in 1943. In 1982, she was invited to throw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Chattanooga Lookouts on their season opening day. She died in 1987, and was buried in Chattanooga Her mentor, Dazzy Vance, went on to pitch major league for Brooklyn, and was the only pitcher to lead the National League in strikeouts for seven consecutive seasons. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1955 and died in 1961.

Word Humor

1. I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me.

Best of Late Night Humor • Ashley Judd announced she will not be running for Senate in Kentucky against Mitch McConnell. And Mitch McConnell announced he will not be costarring in any romantic comedies. - Jay Leno • North Korea is now threatening the United States with all-out war. What did Dennis Rodman say to these people? What did he do? • Wal-Mart will test a new delivery method for customers who order on-line. They’re asking shoppers to drop stuff off for other shoppers on their way home. In exchange, Wal-Mart would give them a discount on their bill. So if you always wanted to work for Wal-Mart but didn’t want to get bogged down with the pay check and healthcare, this is for you. - Jimmy Kimmel • Yesterday President Obama told reporters that his NCAA tournament bracket is busted. Obama said they were the worst picks he’s ever made -then he looked at his economic advisers and said, “Ehh, maybe not.” - Jimmy Fallon • Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano -- the person in charge of our national security - recently said she doesn’t email, text, or tweet. So remember: If you see something, say something -- because there’s literally no other way she’ll get the message. - Jimmy Fallon

What Could Possibly Go Right?

wanted me to tell him to do this and that and then your sales will hit an all-time high and you’ll be the businessman of the year, you’ll pay of all your creditors and cut your mortgage in half! I wish I were that smart. Here’s what I told him, “Look for the opportunity.” I explained to him that in every down market someone is making money and it’s not the person who is curled up in the fetal position hiding in a closet hoping against hope that somehow the storm will quickly pass by. Those who prosper in downtimes are those who seek opportunities and look for advantages. They ignore the bad news and ask persistently, “What could possibly go right? Where is the advantage? What is the hidden opportunity?” The point is, you will only get the right answers if you ask the right questions. Think about it, you don’t even want to know all that could possibly go wrong. It’s too depressing. You want to know what could go right! That’s what’s enlightening, that’s where solutions are found. Not in the nasty negativity of problem-focused thought but in the energizing, spirit lifting, hope inducing, life giving positive search for what could possibly go right. So, for the next several months in this column I will ask again and again, “What could possibly go right?” You are invited to join the search for the advantage, the hunt for hidden opportunity. Together we will not only weather the storm, we’ll be the ones basking in the sunshine while the faint of heart will still be peeking out of their hiding spaces wondering if it’s finally safe to reappear.

There’s not a lot of good news these days. The unemployment rate has hit another high, over 70% of people are not happy with the job they have, and millions have lost their jobs with little prospects of getting anything more than part-time work. Gas prices are going up again, welfare rolls are burgeoning, the education system is broken and the onerous costs of Obamacare has brought business investments to a halt. And that’s just what’s happening in the USA! Do you want me to list all the things that could go wrong in the rest of the world? I didn’t think so. The list of what could possibly go wrong is endless – and hopeless. To plan what to do when you lose your job is to plan to lose your job. To complain about how bad things are is to miss out on how good things could be. To whine about how bad your past has been is to lose sight of your future. Some time ago I knew guy who always looked at the dark side of life. He never saw the sunshine – only the clouds. He told me that he had “enough money to run my business for only another three years and then I’ll be broke. Don’t know what I’ll do then!” He had that “if anything can possibly go wrong it will” syndrome. I stopped hanging out with him for fear I too would get the disease. In these confusing and difficult times, those who outlive the storms to see the sunshine will be those who are looking for the sunshine, not those who are afraid to get wet. A business friend called me last week to complain about his sales. In his frustration he asked, “How am I supposed to survive when nobody is buying my products?” I did not have the kind of answer he wanted. He

By Samantha Weaver • It was pioneering British director of suspense films Alfred Hitchcock who made the following sage observation: “The length of a film should be directly related to the endurance of the human bladder.” • If you’re an arachnophobe, you probably don’t want to know that a tarantula can live for up to two years without eating a single thing. • If you’re like the average American man with a job, you spend 8 minutes per day cooking. If you’re like the average American woman who works, you spend 50 minutes a day preparing meals. • There are four times more astrologers than astronomers in the United States. • You may not think it significant that in 1921, Earle Dickson’s wife had a tendency to injure herself while working in the kitchen. He kept bandaging her wounds with gauze and adhesive tape, but the bandages always seemed to be slipping off. Finally, in exasperation, he put a small piece of gauze in the center of a piece of adhesive tape, which worked beautifully. None of this would have made any difference to us today, except that Dickson was an employee of Johnson & Johnson. He took some samples of his invention into work, where the owner, James Johnson, loved the idea. The Band-Aid went into production shortly thereafter. • In the 1979 gubernatorial election in Louisiana, a man named Luther Knox was fed up with the candidates on the ballot. In order to give likeminded Louisianans an option, he ran for the office himself -- after legally changing his name to “None of the Above.” • You might be surprised to learn that rock star Elvis Presley’s idol was General Douglas MacArthur. Thought for the Day: “The hardest thing in the world to understand is income taxes.” -- Albert Einstein (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.
