Too old, too fat, too talkative and loo easy to hit, the big fellow who came 10 thfc Ynnkets In the rmd- senson and filled a vital gap in a sore-armed pitching staff, was given his unconditional release. For the 39-year-old pride of Hnrtsvilic. S. C., it, was an old, old sloiy, and because along with all ot his anlics, he still is considered a pretty fair country pitcher, il seemed likely that before the 1943 season begins he will be at a new station.

He served as many lerms in Washington as the late F.D.R., performing with the Senators in four different periods, and he was ihrce times a member of the St. Louis Browns. Hij other American League club affiliations were with the Yankees, Boston Hed Sox. Detroit Tigers, and Phlladel- phit AtJ-.letlcs, while in the National League he toiled first with the Chirago Cubs and later with I lie Brooklyn Dodgers on two occasions.
