Mr. Reds Baseball

Rollie FingersFollowing a tough fought 15 inning game with the Homestead Grays interim field manager was heard saying that he was never so happy to see a wild pitch in his life. With both benches all but empty and only a bucket of balls left in both bullpens it was only a matter of time before one of the two managers were going to be forced to take the mound themselves to try and pitch for the win.

When asked about his being on loan from the New York Yankees all he could say was he was happy to have some place to run a team. The Union League is having some troubles getting going but he hopes that he will soon meet some manages to play some games against.
