An outfielder who turned Square he is a handsome gent of forty two with the courtly manner of a Frank Leahy and a gift for easy polished speech which has made him the Golden voice of Winter television in Kansas City.

They re going to show you plays you never dreamed of but Don t lose your temper. Stick with " pm and before they re through they la make you love pm i be tried to remember that and follow dutch s advice. When mistakes Are made Don t blow your top. If you can wait overnight Cool off and then talk it Over quietly the next Day. That Way both you and the player can see the thing in proportion and when you talk it Over you can make a fellow said when you re managing a major league team you Don t expect your players to rewrite the record Book. They re supposed to do it you Craft agreed and sometimes that makes it hard to remember Zwilling s so did you learn to love those teen agers in your first the Man was asked. I certainly did. I was Lucky enough to have kids who could play Ball. I be mentioned some of those you be seen come along to the big leagues.
