Hornsby is a scraper from the old school. Any oldtime major leaguer wil verily that. He knows but one way to play baseball and ^.that's to Rive it everything you sot "every minute. None of this "save it- for tomorrow" stuff for him. "I'm no diplomat and neither am I a Simon Legrce." he told .sportswriters before he Joined the Reds. cxninylc of this. The story is thatj after Ihc 1948 season, in which the Red Sox failed miserably after they had b?en picked to walk off with the pennant.
