That was a play on which Rice disappeared from sight when · he tumbled over the low fence into the laps : of center field fans in Washington's Griffith Stadium. '· Down through the years, Rice's inscrutable smile was the only answer to questions whether he truly caught the ball. In another year,- on Rice's death, the true story will be known. The' Hall of Fame trustees will open a sealed envelope entrusted to them- alone by Rice. In it is Rice's secret.
