ROUND UP

" Do you mean you had four pitchers named Kane ?" says the big busher.
" No," said Bull. " I mean we had four pitchers that could blow up all of a sudden. It was their hobby. Dave used to work them in turn, the same afternoon; on days when Olds and Carney needed a rest. Each one of the four would pitch an innings and a half."
Kane thought quite a while and then said: " But if they was four of them, and they pitched an innings and a half apiece, that's only six innings. Who pitched the other three? "
" Nobody," says Bull. " It was always too dark. By the way, what innings is your favorite? I mean, to blow in ?"
" I don't blow," says the sap.
" Then," said Bull, " why was it that fella called you 'Hurry' Kane ? "
" It was Lefty Condon called me ` Hurry,"' says the sap. " My last name is Kane, and a hurricane is a big wind." " Don't a wind blow? " says Bull.
And so on. I swear they kept it up for two hours, Kane try4ng to explain his nickname and Bull leading him on, and Joe Bonham said that Kane asked him up in the room who that was he had been talking to, and when Joe told him it was Wade, one of the smartest ball players in the league, Hurry said: "`Vell, then, he must be either stewed or else this is a damn sight dumber league than the one I came from."
Bull and some of the rest of the boys pulled all the old gags on him that's been in baseball since the days when you couldn't get on a club unless you had a walrus mustache. And Kane never disappointed them.
They made him go to the club-house after the key to the batter's box; they wrote him mash notes with fake names signed to them and had him spending half his evenings on some corner, waiting to meet gals that never lived; when he held Florida University to two hits in five innings, they sent him telegrams of congratulation from Coolidge and Al Smith, and he showed the telegrams to everybody in the hotel; they had him report at the ball park at six-thirty one morning for a secret "pitchers' conference "; they told him the Ritz was where all the unmarried ball players on the club lived while we were home, and they got him to write and ask for a parlor, bedroom and bath for the whole season. They was nothing he wouldn't fall for till Dave finally tipped him off that he was being kidded, and even then he didn't half believe it.
