Paul Richards consulted as an authority localise, as a catcher, as a manager and as a general man- aser lie had dealt with many pitchers who threw base-halts at batters' cars harder and move accurately than anybody could throw a bat. and had never de- plored the practice if the pitch- er played on his side. In fact. even when lie was a sports col- umnist m Waxahatchie, Tex., Richards wrote with tolerance; editorially, the Waxahatchie Daily Light iavored an early sining and opposed the boll weevil and It was neutral on the beanball.
