by Janet Spencer In honor of spring training, come along with Tidbits as we remember some unforgettable moments brought to you by memorable pitchers. • 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. • 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.

• 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. Turn the page for more!

PITCHING SHENANIGANS (continued)

• 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 strikeout. 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 pickup 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 Chicago Cubs. One day he got an excited call

UNUSUAL BASEBALL PLAYS • Brooklyn had the bases loaded. Hank DeBerry was on third, Dazzy Vance on second, and Chick Fewster was on first. Babe Herman came up to bat and hit a long one. DeBerry ran home and scored. Vance advanced to third and decided to stay there. Fewster ran to second and was on his way to third when he saw that Vance had stopped, so he turned around and went back to second. But Babe Herman was running full speed ahead, past first, past second, and on to third. At third he made a great slide, only to find Vance already occupying the base. Fewster stood halfway between second and third, wondering what he should do. The third baseman got the ball and began tagging everybody in sight. When the umpire recovered his senses, he called Herman and Fewster out, and Vance safe. It took half an hour for the audience to stop laughing, and it spawned a popular joke: “How’s the game going?” “Brooklyn has three men on base!” “Oh really? Which base?” • Herman Schaefer, playing for Washington in 1910, was on first and a teammate was on third. Schaefer stole second, hoping the catcher would try to throw him out, giving the teammate on third a chance to go for home. But the catcher didn’t make the throw. So Schaefer stole first base back. The rule book revealed no rule against stealing bases backwards. When play resumed, Schaefer stole second again. The catcher threw (too late) and the teammate on third scored. Later the rules were amended and stealing backwards became an automatic out. • Herman Schaefer once hit a homer out of the park. He slid into first, slid into second, slid into third, and slid home. • In Fenway Park, rules declare that if a batted ball hits one of the pigeons who roost in the stadium, the ball is declared dead. • In 1984, Dave Klingman went to bat for the Oakland Athletics against the Minnesota

PITCHING SHENANIGANS (continued)

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!”

• 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!”

Canadian Recycling Facts

Last Weeks:

• Today, approximately 71% of the fibre used to make Canadian pulp and paper comes from sawmill residues and recovered papers that used to go into landfills. • Over 90% of paper-based packaging is made from recycled fibre or sawmill residue. • Canada is the world’s largest importer of recovered paper and paperboard; it is also a leading exporter of recycled-content paper and paperboard. • In 1989, there was only one mill in Canada that could manufacture recycled-content newsprint.

Pet Bits

Q: We adopted a kitten from a shelter, and at only 7 months she already weighs 14 pounds. We feed her a half a can of canned food each morning and have dry food available all the time. Sparky even sleeps near the food bowl, and eats often. I believe she must have gone hungry before she came to us. To cut calories, I have switched to adult dry food. Our other cat is 13 and is a healthy weight. How can we help Sparky lose weight? - D.H., Las Vegas, NV A: Dr. Jane Brunt, executive director of the non-profit cat advocacy CATalyst Council, says, “It’s great you’re concerned about your cat’s weight, as this is a critical issue. It sounds like Sparky may be obese, which can lead to health problems. See your veterinarian to insure Sparky is healthy and also to devise a (weight-loss) plan.” That plan will likely include adjusting Sparky’s diet, as well as the way you feed this cat. You may be urged to feed Sparky on a schedule rather than leaving food out all the time. “When he looks for food, instead take a toy and play, or groom him,” says Brunt, of Baltimore, MD. In fact, exercise is a good idea. Hiding treats in fooddispensing toys and puzzles would also force Sparky to exercise as she searches for the goodies. Work with your veterinarian to develop a schedule, so you can keep tabs on Sparky’s weight loss. And, of course, no crash diets!

DVD Reviews

“HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN”: Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen bring acting heft to this made-for-HBO drama about the passionate relationship of war reporter Martha Gellhorn and iconic author Ernest Hemingway. While their work reflected major world events and deep personal emotions, their personal interaction gave them many of their greatest challenges. Director Philip Kaufman (“The Right Stuff”) also includes David Strathairn, Molly Parker, Parker Posey, Peter Coyote and Tony Shalhoub in his cast. DVD extra: audio commentary by Kaufman and editor Walter Murch. ***

“MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE: PHASE ONE - AVENGERS ASSEMBLED”: If you’re a fan of Marvel Comics superheroes, here’s a little piece of heaven ... six of the live-action feature films featuring the characters, several of them also in 3-D versions, packaged together in a Blu-ray box along with a new bonus disc titled “The Phase One Archives.” Each of the included movies - “Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “The Incredible Hulk” and (of course) “Marvel’s The Avengers” - also has its own bonus features. Stars include Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Edward Norton, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner. *** “JACKIE ROBINSON: MY STORY”: The timing of this release is far from coincidental, given the imminent opening of the movie “42,” also about the life and career of baseball icon Robinson. Here, archival footage and photos are blended with dramatized sequences to recall his barrier-breaking impact on the sport and on society in general. Former Robinson teammates including Don Newcombe and Carl Erskine offer comments. *** “NOVA: RISE OF THE DRONES”: With all the headlines the aerial devices have been making lately, this episode of the PBS science series is particularly timely. It examines the various purposes and characteristics of the vehicles, often deployed for military surveillance that can be a cause of great concern and political tension ... as has been reconfirmed in recent times. *** “FULL HOUSE: THE COMPLETE SEASONS SEVEN AND EIGHT”: The final two years of the popular sitcom - one of ABC’s top attractions during its run, thanks in no small part to the huge popularity of twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who became a cottage industry unto themselves - are packaged in this collection. The siblings’ shared character, Michelle, is at the heart of stories that involve Christmas-present confusion and (in the series finale) a horse-riding accident; Bob Saget, John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron, Jodie Sweetin and Lori Loughlin also star.*** “EARTH’S FINAL HOURS”: The title certainly doesn’t make things sound too good for the planet in this madefor-Syfy thriller. A phenomenon generates radiation storms, leaving Earth vulnerable to intergalactic threats ... and prompting a desperate effort to halt the disaster, involving some unlikely heroes. Cast members include genre veterans Hamza Adams (“Sanctuary”) and Julia Benson (“SGU Stargate Universe”). **

Canadian Tid-bits ▶ Al Lakusta, an 8th grade teacher, discovered one of Canada’s richest fossil beds in 1973. Located near Grande Prairie, Alberta, it’s one of the densest dinosaur beds in the world, containing about 100 bones per square metre, representing hundreds of individual dinosaurs of various species. It’s theorized the density of fossils was due to a large herd of animals drowning in a flood or while crossing a river some 73 million years ago.

▶ There’s a mountain called the Snow Dome rising above Columbia Glacier. Water running down the west side of Snow Dome flows through British Columbia and ends up in the Pacific Ocean. Water running down the north side goes down the Mackensie River and into the Arctic Ocean. Water running down the east side of the mountain eventually ends up in the Atlantic Ocean.

Tip Week Saving Money –

Homemade Fabric Refresher Most of us have furniture, clothing, and automobiles that smell and feel “used”. Usually these items smell less than pleasant and sometimes even feel sticky to the touch. So we buy air fresheners and fabric refreshers each week with our grocery shop just to try and keep our stuff feeling fresher. One popular product is Febreze but there are many on the market. Normally you’d pay $4 or $5 (maybe more) for a bottle of fabric refresher. My tip this week is to tell you how to make your own homemade fabric refreshers for pennies a bottle. Items needed include an empty spray bottle (be sure to use a spray bottle that will spray a fine mist (not a steady stream), some liquid fabric softener, baking soda, and hot water. Add 30ml (2 tablespoons) of fabric softener to the spray bottle first. Choose a smell you like. If you’re not a fabric softener user, I suggest choosing a fragrance like “April Flowers” or “Mountain

Fresh Air” or something similar. Then add 30ml (2 tablespoons) of baking soda to the bottle. Then add hot water – approximately 800ml of water (just under a liter, or approx. 3 1/3 cups). Shake well and spray away! Total cost to you: just a few pennies and your furniture will be smelling fresh and feeling smooth as new again. A very practical tip this week - I make no guarantees on the product’s effectiveness but it works well for me and it saves me money – both VERY good things in my books!

Twins. Klingman hit a fly ball that penetrated the protective netting of the Metrodome ceiling 180 feet up. It never fell. Umpires called it a ground rule double. When the ball was retrieved by the groundskeeper, it was sent to the Baseball Hall of Fame. • In 1920, the Cleveland Indians were up against Brooklyn in the World Series. Bill Wambsganss was in center field for the Indians when he caught a fly for one out. The force of the running jump carried him to second base, where he tagged out the second base runner who had been heading for third. Then he got another easy out by tagging the first base runner heading for second. It was an unassisted triple play. The crowd was silent while they tried to figure out what had happened and how many outs there were. When realization set in, fans went wild. • Mike Grady, third baseman for the New York Giants, holds the distinction of making the most errors in one play. In 1895, he missed a ground ball and the batter reached first. He overthrew the ball to first, and the batter got to second. When the runner headed for third, the first base man threw to Grady, but he dropped it and the runner raced home, whereupon Grady threw the ball over the catcher’s head. Four errors on a single play.
