ALIBI IKE

and I met it right square where I was swingin' to go under the fast one."
" Great! " says Cap. " Boys," he says, " Ike's learned how to hit Marquard's curve. Pretend a fast one's comin' and then try to miss it. It's a good thing to know and Ike'd ought to be willin' to pay for the lesson. So I'm goin' to make it a hundred instead o' fifty."
The game wound up 3 to 1. The fine didn't go, because Ike hit like a wild man all through that trip and we made pretty near' a clean-up. The night we went to Philly I got him cornered in the car and I says to him :
" Forget them alibis for a wile and tell me somethin'. What'd you do that for, swing that time against Marquard when you was told to bunt? "
" I'll tell you," he says. " That ball he throwed me looked just like the one I struck out on in the first innin' and I wanted to show Cap what I could of done to that other one if I'd knew it was the third strike."
" But," I says, " the one you struck out on in the first innin' was a fast ball."
" So was the one I cracked in the ninth," says Ike.

IV
You've saw Cap's wife, o' course. Well, her sister's about twict as good-lookin' as her, and that's goin' some.
Cap took his missus down to St. Louis the second trip and the other one come down from St. Joe to visit her. Her name is ` Dolly, and some doll is right.
Well, Cap was goin' to take the two sisters to a show and he wanted a beau for Dolly. He left it to her and she picked Ike. He'd hit three on the nose that afternoon-off'n Sallee, too.
They fell for each other that first evenin'. Cap told us how it come off. She begin flatterin' Ike for the star game he'd played and o' course he begin excusin' himself for not doin' better. So she thought he was modest and it went strong with her. And she believed everything he said and that made her solid with himthat and her make-up. They was together every mornin' and evenin' for the five days we was there. In the afternoons Ike played ; the grandest ball you ever see, hittin' and runnin' the bases like a fool and catchin' everything that stayed in the park.
