To hear him expound to any (Treat length on his chances iof making the grade, you must bc- 'iteve lhat lie will do most of the : catching for the Bush clnn. * * * When McQrnw took Grubc, fresh out of college, to hts Giants in June of 1028. the little Napoleon I wns informed that his catching I \vorrles were at an end. Grube cx- | plained (hat lie was ready to work i regularly behind the bat.

Grube grimaced and swallowed this rather bitter pill. How- cver. he always look off his uniform as soon a.s the yamc started and. In company with friends, stit in the stands where he minced-no wcrds hi declaring that he was better catcher than any on the New York roster. Grube signed with Bridgeport's I Eastern League team In 1929.

No bands blared | when he reported to the Bisons, but such was hardly necessary. Ha slarted tooting his own horn and shortly was catching regularly. He j finished the season with a .348'bat- | ting average and was purchased by i Ihe White Sox, who had to bid'high I for his services. •I Bill Coiighlin. former Detroit star who ccachcd Grube at Lafayette college, says the youth has one of Ihe strongest arms in baseball.
