Most baseball stars achieve their greatest fame;, towards ilio cjose -of their careers.'But with Pepper it:was' different—rthe. c,limax of 'his career came near/its'-start. !- The \yild Morse of .the Osage left liis native Oklahoma to enter baseball, in 192o. He kno'cked around the 'minors ..until.he was brought up hy St. 'Louis'"Cardinals' In 1031,, When pepper .entered th^, ; ]Sational league., he made the f act T 'kn6wn. He' jn tro- duced- a style of play which won |i4ni .the Osage* 1 iiickiiame, and .which made him' tlvc Icyider./of tlie famed Qas House gang. Pepper was a reckless, careless, 'dar.iiig player. Ho charged' 1 ^!! over.;the-field,,,slid for ;home. .on his stomach, crushed inlo teammates goi^ng after flies. And he Imbued" 'tlie rest of the team Nyilli liis boundless energy. •, •When the Cards got into the world scries in 1931; largely.through Pepper's efforts, .they weren't given seven- an outside chance to heat the ^Philadelphia Athletics.

In: the ; 'seeond game, .Pepper's series totals ran like this—batting t average,. 500, 1)it a liome run and 'two' doubles, and, .just for good measure, he stole 'live bases..
