I He was born In Huntsvllle, 47 years ago. Twenty-four of the interven- j ing years he spent in the obscur- Ity of the bushes, managing. catch- Ing and slapping fines on the boys when they refused to pay attention. For only six years out-of his 30 years in baseball did he bask in the big league sunlight. And four of those years he spent at the receiving end of the thin white streak Waller Johnson hurled past the American League batters. It was Oabby. by the way, who first spoke that immortal baseball phrase, concerning thc speed of the Big Train, "Yuli canl hit 'em when yuli can't see 'em." ; . Street wns only 1C when he broke hi with Hopkiiisvllle. Ky., in the Kitty League. He played at •Jack'- son, Ky., in 1800 and spent three years among the Kentcky semW pros. In 1904. Cincinnati brought him to the big leagues. In the following year the BosUin Bravrs. gave the blackeyed Alabama boy a trial; but sent him to Sah'Prancisco .in 1906. -- ' '•'.'-. Street wns sold to Washington ijfi IMS, arriving Just' a year behind the fastest piteher baseball ever knew. The late'"Pongb .Joe" Cari- tlllon, famous ball player and manager of the old rough-and- ready school, was boss team. Street did. not have the bulk and build of the old-fashioned big league catchers, most of whom qualified for the job more by cubic indies ot displacement than by ability. "Pongo Joe" looked over the young man carefully and expressed some doubts us .to whether or not Oabby was stout enough to elop those shoots of Walter Johnson's. Street caught only one game, however, before Canlillon was convinced. This keen-eyed young man from the south clung to those "hard ones" Walter burned in, and Cantlllon liked the brusque, con- , fldent way Onbby went about his I business. ' !
