His name is Tom Ramsey, and bis home is in Indiana* polis. Six or seven years ago he was at meridian in the old Association, pitching such remarkable ball that every day other clubs made large offers for liis services. But Tom got mixed with John Barleycorn, and for several years did not attempt to shine on the base-ball field as he had been wont This spring a new ambition straightened him out, and he has been pitching some good games for the Southern League Club. While Chicago was playing at St. Louis the other day, President Hart, of the Chicago club, became reminiscent, llis re minis* cences, as told in the Chicago Post, were:“That team down there or at least the St Louis Browns—there isn’t one of the originals left—was once the crack team of the country. It defeated the great Chicago club for the world's championship in 18tfcl and in the American Association it was away ahead of its class. There was but one team in the American of which the Browns were afvaid and that was my team—the old l^ouisvillcs. The Browns were heavy batters and could get around any pitcher in the couutry but one. That v*e lUmscy. liamsey was the greatest pitcher that ever threw a ball. I got him til the Southern League and he cost us as untch as $500— a sum in those days that was considered a big consideration for a pitcher. When 1 say that liamsey wus the greatestCatcher, i mean just that and nothing more.I e was a left-handed man and hud two peculiar curves. In these two curves lay the whole secret of his miraculous work, lie used hia index and middle linger on the ball and by a peculiar twist would put on his curves, llis first curve shot down. The j'all would leave his hand and go in a avruight lin«i right up to the home plate. TkAtt it would suddenly ahoot down, in the ptlier shoot the ball would fly ott‘ at an augle into the air just as the striker would swing hi* bat. To hit that delivery was impossible. One at bat coula not tell which shoot the fellow was about to use, for the whole trick was done with the two fingers, lie would stand there grinning in the pitch* er a box and strike out mau alter man that tame to the bat. The most experienced battera m the Association were as helpless before him as the weakest There was never a man in any of its eight clubs that could hiT him, {or the simple reason that it w as impossible. I never knew of such remarkable control pf the ball in all my experience. It was like magic.\ “The big players on the St. Louis team draaded Kamaay more than any three whole elute in America. They knew that before him ifiV were powerless. Their wonderful base-running ability was of no avail, for ho wouldn't lei them aef to first I remember one Sunday game in which Kamsey struck out seventeen of them. And onr another occasion he struck out the first thirteeu that came to bat. 1 have known him to wia game after game without tki assistance of the other men.1 believe that he and his eatehcr could alone have played any team of ball piayere in the country and have atood a very fair chance of winning it. It was a common occurrence for him to abut out hia opponent* with uo hits at all. It mattered not how old or experienced were the betters that faced him lie would mow them down without turning a hair. No man with ho* man eyes could strike the ball when be pitched it. The few hits that were made off him now and then were taken when he would lorgtit himself and slip up in his delivery. Much of Ramsey’s effectiveness was lost wheu the new rule* were made, restricting the motions of the pitcher aud farcing him to Isold the ball up at hia breast in plain aight of the hitter; The oddest thing about that young fellow was hia apparent unconscious* nesa of hie vast value to the team aa aJitcber. He had no conceit whatever as to is remarkable ability aa a pitcher. But he was conceited enough otherwise. He had an idea that Jie was a great batter. Ha wasn't but he thonght he was.
