WEDNESDAY, AUOUST 12, 19S4 THE OTTAWA JOURNAL 23 2) WESTWICK The Ottawa Journal Casey Went Through This All His Life m i. TTS other humorous In one tenia to hear torn o( tin reactions to the recent story that Casey Stengel might : be through with the New season. Aoart from aeneral exception has been taken to . One sports writer is chargedCwith "Jumping the gun" on It The Meta' brass naturally has quite embarrassed since, if the story is true, they naturally would Ilka the onnortunitv to discuss the matter with Stengel before it became public property. At the same time many that he should become the target for a story at this time of the season. It's embarrassing for him, they say, and convey - the idea that "it wUI break the Certainly it would be better f dean cut break could be made and both sides join In any such announcement But those who feel old Casey will after all be, a premature announcement of his passing from the baseball scene, are being - Stengel has spent his entire baseball life going through , this sort of thing. He's been.' ridiculed, hired against the wishes of powerful 'people withr different clubs.- He's under . ' tone such sevaM criticism during rough times that this type of development with, the It wasn't always thus for thick hide after all these years and booted around both la public print and eventually by front off ices. , ? . ' : ' ." : ., ? TOUGH ERA IN BOSTON .V ' Ktmpfl'i Have. In Kmnklvn ware raised anouBh but there couldn't have been' a tougher era fojf him than when ha mantied the Boston club of' the National League. Ha had admirers with the Braves, or ' them in the early forties, hut hi Club failed to make any headway in the standings. ' I Nobody could develop a ln all sport than Dave Egan. then writing for the Boston Record, Art Ross who died the other day could tell you a story or two about Egan as a critic. At any rata, Stengel became fair game for this writer who cut loose once with this paragraph about Stengel: .'." .. fHe'a a great guy, except tor those who work for him. He's a fumy guy too; always funny at somebody else's expense, and somebody is usually within bearing distance. So her wound up with a sullen ball club and the majority of players hated him. He ruined some of the young players, yet -he always remained funny in bat cruel and malicious way." ' "' -' .:--' ;l But Egan was to reserve his worst blast for a day to which Stengel almost was killed. A taxi cab bit him and wnca ha wound up in hospital with a broken leg, Egan wrote fast the cab driver should be honored with a plaque "as the man who bas dona the most for Boston baseball in 1943."" ' . , ' ' MISPLACED SYMPATHY , The amusing part of what you'd have to say is misplaced . sympathy for Stengel now is that the Egan story and hia associations In New York and subsequent munnurings while . with the Yanks bsva been actually Casey's life story. We re-- member one time asking Mickey Mantle If Casey's report' to a Senate hearing was as strange as It sounded. . Ha agreed that the old guy was at his best v . . . ' ' Our own impression of Stengel over a period of yean if that he's i superb actor who can launch into a session of ' "Stengeless" when he feels the urge but can 'he as lucid as anybody in the world when be wants to be. Casey has made a study of baseball, but mora important to him, he knows the people in It :. " ;. And don't think that ha can't be resentful of anybody taking the play away from him. There was one day when Branch Rickey decided to treat Casey a little casually. Rickey could do this with practically anybody In baseball Rickey took the crowd that day, and Stengel couldnt have shown hia own personal resentment In any other way. Ha popped out of the dugout and ssid to Rickey: "It's an right when, you tell the story, but that lent the way It happened." ' " . It's Just silly to bear people getting sentimental about Sengel getting "the gaW before it actually, happens. He's spent his life in this predicament but, bless him,' ha can take this or any of the incidents that transpired before. Casey has a tremendous wife and a bank account - ., This story would be Just a minor Incident in a career that has seen a tot of the same thing.
