McGraw needed pitching badly. He had won a pennant in 1921. and was destined not only to repeat In 1922, but to go on a record of four straight flags, with two world championships. Bub all through these four sen- sons of glory, Mac was bcse[. with an ever pressing pitching problem, find . tie hoped'that Terry would regain the form he had shown for Shrcveport. But BUI was wild. And Bill was big and strong, and a hitter. McGraw. took a look at him around first base, and got a hunch. In June, the Giants sent Terry to-'Toledo, of the American Association, on option. McGraw had an Interest in the Toledo club, and Roger Bresnahan, the old Giant catcher,- was running the Mud Heiis for him. • it - . "I want you to put Terry . at first base and develop him *for me." McGraw told Bresnnhan. "He has the makings of a great first sacker and I want you to send htm back to me ready to take George Kelly's Job." Terry's success with Toledo was notable. In 88 games in 1922, Bill hit for .336, and fielded phenomenally. In 1923, in 109 games with Toledo, Terry's batting average was .317, and his fielding record was .993. Major league scouts flocked to Toledo with offers. Bresnahan laughed. "McGraw owns this bird." he said. Later in the same season, McGraw recalled Terry from Toledo. With him same a fresh, kid named Freddy Llndstrom. his roomie in Toledo, who was destined to make baseball history along with Terry in New York. • • * For ten years Bill and Freddy were pals. In 1932, Freddy was led-to believe that when McGraw quit, he would get his job. When Terry was chosen over him. Lindstrom was heart-sick. He had to be. traded. Now they say he maj realize his managerial ambition in Pittsburgh,' and in 1934, flgh Terry's ambition lo repeat. , In '1921 Terry Went 'south with the GlanU, stuck alter the weed Ini* out process, remained whet McQraw cut down to 25 players on June 15, and today Memphis Bil le*ds the Giants toward baseball' classic.
