finally he slammed one over in right.
To appreciate this distance one must

grandstand at the Polo grounds. Then
look out toward the quarter seats in
centrefield, and right in the middle of
the spot would be where Big Bill land

three grounders straight at him and he
went after the ball as if some one had
tossed a barrel of apples his way and
he was trying to get them all at once.
He got hb legs crossed and stretched
his full length on the green sward.
While that was unfortunate, it gavo
McGraw an idea. Stretched out Jac
