ALIBI IKE

Cap prob'ly would of hit him with a bat, only just about that time Doyle booted one on Hayes and Carey come acrost with the run that tied.
Well, we go into the ninth finally, one and one, and Marquard walks McDonald with nobody out.
" Lay it down," says Cap to Ike.
And Ike goes up there with orders to bunt and cracks the first ball into that right-field stand ! It was fair this time, and we're two ahead, but I didn't think about that at the time. I was too busy watchin' Cap's face. First he turned pale and then he got red as fire and then he got blue and purple, and finally he just laid back and busted out laughin'. So we wasn't afraid to laugh our selfs when we seen him doin' it, and when Ike come in everybody on the bench was in hysterics.
But instead o' takin' advantage, Ike had to try and excuse him self. His play was to shut up and he didn't know how to make it. " Well," he says, " if I hadn't hit quite so quick at that one I bet it'd of cleared the center-field fence."
Cap stopped laughin'.
" It'll cost you plain fifty," he says. " What for? " says Ike.
" When I say ` bunt' I mean ` bunt,"' says Cap. " You didn't say 'bunt,"' says Ike.
" I says ` Lay it down,"' says Cap. " If that don't mean ` bunt,' what does it mean ? "
" ` Lay it down' means ` bunt' all right," says Ike, " but I understood you to say 'Lay on it."'
" All right," says Cap, " and the little misunderstandin' will cost you fifty."
Ike didn't say nothin' for a few minutes. Then he had another bright idear.
" I was just kiddin' about misunderstandin' you," he says. " I knowed you wanted me to bunt."
" Well, then, why didn't you bunt? " ast Cap.
" I was goin' to on the next ball," says Ike. " But I thought if I took a good wallop I'd have 'em all fooled. So I walloped at the first one to fool 'em, and I didn't have no intention o' hittin' it." " You tried to miss it, did you? " says Cap. " Yes," says Ike.
" How'd you happen to hit it? " ast Cap.
" Well," Ike says, " I was lookin' for him to throw me a fast one and I was goin' to swing under it., But he come with a hook.
