ROUND UP

games and I was in both of 'em. And I broke in with my usual lovely luck, because the pitchers I was ast to face was Boehling, a nasty lefthander, and this guy Johnson.
The mornin' game was Boehling's and he wasn't no worse than some o' the rest of his kind. I only whiffed once and would of had a triple if Milan hadn't run from here to New Orleans and stole one off me.
I'm not boastin' about my first experience with Johnson though. They can't never tell me he throws them balls with his arm. He's got a gun concealed about his person and he shoots 'em up there. I was leadin' off in Murphy's place and tha game was a little delayed in startin', because I'd watched the big guy warm up and wasn't in no hurry to get to that plate. Before I left the bench Connie says :
" Don't try to take no healthy swing. Just meet 'em and you'll get along better."
So I tried to just meet the first one he throwed ; but when I stuck out my bat Henry was throwin' the pill back to Johnson. Then I thought : Maybe if I start swingin' now at the second one I'll hit the third one. So I let the second one come over and the umps guessed it was another strike, though I'll bet a thousand bucks he couldn't see it no more'n I could.
While Johnson was still windin' up to pitch again I started to swing-and the big cuss crosses me with a slow one. I lunged at it twice and missed it both times, and the force o' my wallop throwed me clean back to the bench. The Ath-a-letics was all laughin' at me and I laughed too, because I was glad that much of it was over.
McInnes gets a base hit off him in the second innin' and I ast him how he done it.
" He's a friend o' mine," says Jack, " and he lets up when he pitches to me."
I made up my mind right there that if I was goin' to be in the league next year I'd go out and visit Johnson this winter and get acquainted.
I wished before the day was over that I was hittin' in the catcher's place, because the fellers down near the tail-end of the battin' order only had to face him three times. He fanned me on three pitched balls again in the third, and when I come up in the sixth he scared me to death by pretty near beanin' me with the first one.
" Be careful! " says Henry. " He's gettin' pretty wild and he's liable to knock you away from your uniform."
