ROUND UP

" What do they say about him? " asked Grimes.
" I'll read it to you," I said:
" ` Speed Parker, McGraw's great third baseman, is ill in a local hospital with nervous prostration, the result of the strain of the World's Series, in which lie played such a stellar role. Parker is in such a dangerous condition that no one is allowed to see him. Members of the New York team and fans from Gotham called at the hospital to-day, but were unable to gain admittance to his ward. Philadelphians hope he will recover speedily and will suffer no permanent ill effects from his sickness, for he won their admiration by his work in the series, though he was on a rival team. A lucky catch by Grimes, the Athletics' substitute outfielder, was all that prevented Parker from winning the title for New York. According to Manager Mack, of the champions, the series would have been over in four games but for Parker's wonderful exhibition of nerve and- ' "
" That'll be a plenty," Grimes interrupted. "And that's just what you might expect from one o' them doughheaded reporters. If all the baseball writers was where they belonged they'd have to build an annex to Matteawan."
I kept my temper with very little effort-it takes more than a peevish ball player's remarks to insult one of our fraternity; but I didn't exactly understand his peeve.
" Doesn't Parker deserve the bouquet?" I asked.
" Oh, they can boost him all they want to," said Grimes; " but when they call that catch lucky and don't mention the fact that Parker is the luckiest guy in the world, somethin' must be wrong with 'em. Did you see the serious?"
" No," I lied glibly, hoping to draw from him the cause of his grouch.
" Well," he said, " you sure missed somethin'. They never was a serious like it before and they won't never be one again. It went the full seven games and every game was a bear. They was one big innin' every day and Parker was the big cheese in it. Just as Connie says, the Ath-a-letics would of cleaned 'em in four games but for Parker ; but it wasn't because he's a great ball player-it was because he was born with a knife, fork and spoon in his mouth, and a rabbit's foot hung round his neck.
" You may not know it, but I'm Grimes, the guy that made the lucky catch. I'm the guy that won the serious with a hit-a homerun hit; and I'm here to tell you that if I'd had one-tenth o' Parker's luck they'd of heard about me long before yesterday.
