ROUND UP

" Yes," I said, " but your home town, Yuma, is a long ways from Waco and you couldn't see much of her winters even if you stayed in the Texas League."
" I got a gal in Yuma for winters," he says. " This other gal was just for during the season."
" -low about that one time you showed your stuff ?" I asked him. " How did you happen to do it? "
" Well," he said, " the Dallas club was playing a series in Waco and I went to a picture show and seen the gal with Fred Kruger. He's Dallas's manager. So the next day I made a monkey out of his ball club. I struck out fifteen of them and give them one hit -a fly ball that Smitty could have caught in a hollow tooth if he hadn't drunk his lunch."
Of course that was the game Dave's friend seen him pitch and we were lucky he happened to be in Waco just then. And it was Kane's last game in that league. Him and his " during the season " gal had a brawl and he played sick and got himself sent home.
Well, everybody knows now what a whale of a pitcher he turned out to be. He had a good, fast-breaking curve and Carney learned him how to throw a slow ball. Old Kid Farrell worked like a horse with him and got him so he could move around and field his position. At first he seemed to think he was moored out there. And another cute habit that had to be cured was his full wind-up with men on bases. The Kid starved him out of this.
Maybe I didn't tell you what an eater he was. Before Dave caught on to it, he was ordering one breakfast in his room and having another downstairs, and besides pretty near choking himself to death at lunch and supper, he'd sneak out to some lunchroom before bedtime, put away a Hamburger steak and eggs and bring back three or four sandwiches to snap at during the night.
He was rooming at the start with Joe Bonham and Joe finally told on him, thinking it was funny. But it wasn't funny to Dave and he named the Kid and Johnny Abbott a committee of two to 'see that Kane didn't explode. The Kid watched over him at table and Johnny succeeded Bonham as his roommate. And the way the Kid got him to cut out his wind-up was by telling him, " Now if you forget yourself and use it with a man on, your supper's going to be twc olives and a finger-bowl, but if you hold up those runners, you can eat the chef."
As I say, the whole world knows what he is now. But they don't know how hard we worked with him, they don't know how close we
