ROUND UP

Ike. " If I could of saw the ball all the time I'd of got it in my hip pocket."
Along in the fifth we was one run to the bad and Ike got on
with one out. On the first ball throwed to Smitty, Ike went down.
The ball was outside and Meyers throwed Ike out by ten feet. You could see Ike's lips movin' all the way to the bench and
when he got there he had his piece learned. - " Why didn't he swing? " he says.
" Why didn't you wait for his sign? " says Cap. " He give me his sign," says Ike.
" What is his sign with you? " says Cap.
" Pickin' up some dirt with his right hand," says Ike. " Well, I didn't see him do it," Cap says. " He done it all right," says Ike. '
Well, Smitty went out and they wasn't no more argument till
they come in for the next innin'. Then Cap opened it up. " You fellas better get your signs straight," he says. " Do you mean me? " says Smitty.
" Yes," Cap says. " What's your sign with Ike ?"
" Slidin' my left hand up to the end o' the bat and back," says
Smitty. - " Do you hear that, Ike ?" ast Cap.
" What of it? " says Ike.
" You says his sign was pickin' up dirt and he says it's slidin' his hand. Which is right?"
" I'm right," says Smitty. " But if you're arguin' about him goin' last innin', I didn't give him, no sign."
" You pulled your cap down with your right hand, didn't you? " ast Ike.
" Well, s'pose I did," says Smitty. " That don't mean nothin'. .I never told you to take that for a sign, did I?"
" I thought maybe you meant to tell me and forgot," says Ike.
They couldn't none of us answer that and they wouldn't of been no more said if Ike had of shut up. Butwile we was settin' there Carey got on with two out and stole second clean.
" There! " says Ike. " That's what I was tryin' to do and I'd of got away with it if Smitty'd swang and bothered the Indian."
" Oh !" says, Smitty. " You was tryin' to steal then, was you? I thought you claimed I give you the hit and run."
" I didn't claim no such a thing," says Ike. " I thought maybe you might of gave me a sign, but I was goin' anyway because I thought I had a good start."
