Jack, the oldest aciH-e scout in the business, was known as "Dashing Jack" v.-hen he played ball because of his base running ability. . . . "You can't pass a rulo about lhat." Doyle proclaimed. "Il's a pan of Ihe game to try to break up tlui-e double plays. Even if a fellow is out. he can't hold up once he has committed himself to a slide. He'll hurt himself thiil way. . . . It's just, good, aggressive baseball and that's what the players and fans like." . . .
