The one-lime National League batting champion persuaded Hnrrell to work with greater nonchalance when the {janic hung on a single pitch. "Take a look around the park," cautioned manager O'Doul. "Let the batter do the waiting. Let him get nervous instead of yon."

All eyes turned to Terry Moore, 'who sprinted back for the ball. llarrell blew a sigh of relief when Moore stopped and held up his hands. The ball thumped into Terry's glove—and thumped right out.again. Two men scored nnd the Cubs won. Harrell wished he had never left ihc ione prairie. Friseh clapped Hal-roll on the shoulder in the dressing room and s.ild: "Well, son, in my book you won thai game!" "And in my book I lost it!" snarled Iliinell.
