Это произошло весьма неожиданно. После стольких лет разлуки мне казалось, что сможем увидеться лишь на том свете... Или в другой жизни.
Нас раскидало по разным частям страны, мира после нашего совместного успеха. Не подумала бы, что все произойдет настолько неожиданно и приятно...
Мое новое творение уже размещено на Фикбуке. Может кто-то любит их так же, как и я? Ссылка в био🥀
The 1950s belonged to the New York
Yankees. Between 1949 and 1959 they won 9 American League Pennants and 7 World Series.
The won with young stars and old veterans.
They one with the superb pitching of
“Junk Man” Eddie Lopat, “Superchief” Allie Reynolds, and Whitey Ford - the Chairman of the Board.
They won with clutch hitting, steady fielding, and fiery temperament of Second Baseman Billy Martin and the speedy Shortstop Phil Rizutto, who was called the “Scooter.”
And they won with the “Ol Perfessor”,
A man of great natural intelligence who barely made it out of high school and spent 2 years at dental college before making in the majors. If he didn’t want you to understand what he was saying or if there was suddenly “dead air” which he hated, he would start to make things up and ramble on. He invented “Stengelese”
“There comes a moment in every man’s life and I’ve had plenty of ‘em”
He was best known for a game winning inside-the-park home run in the 1923 Series.
And he was known for his inveterate clowning. Once, performing before a raucous, booing crowd he put a live sparrow under his cap, went to the plate, tipped his cap, and gave the fans “the bird”. Later he invented what he thought was a perfect way to protest a call....he fainted. He met his match with the veteran umpire “Beans” Riordan. “When I peaked out of one eye and saw (Riordan) on the ground, too. I knew I was licked,” he remembered.
“All right, everybody line up alphabetically, according to your height.”
“I made up my mind, but I made it up both ways.”
“Most people my age are dead at the present time.”
Hired in 1949, they didn’t think he would have much success.
He perfected the old John McGraw method of platooning, sitting lefty hitters against lefty pitchers, and vice versa. He emphasized relief pitching.
If you lived in an American League city in the ‘50s you HATED the Yankees. Those seven World Series?...5 of them were consecutive, a record of dominance never matched since.
