They plfiycd the All-Star pame in Washington (.hat year—it was tho fifth of the All-Star Serins— anil they ran it off on July 7th, 1937. Even in the morning of that day tho Washington heat was terrible. But GeliriK looked cool and easy. Lou always hit well in Washington—he felt ready for a pood day ainyt the National Icapuc. Lou figured -he had some All-Star hits coming. He'd only collected, one hit in the first four All-Star panics. The American leapue was the home loam that day.' They took the field for thu start or the first tuning — and thoir starting lineup handed the fans a bit of a jolt. Lou Gehritr on first. Lefty Gomez, also of the Yankees, pitch-. ;: and three more Yankees scattered around tho field. Five mem- lutrs of Joe McCarthy's wo I'M hampions in, tile- nine-man- team.

And Lofty like all the rest of the Yankees -loved to beat tho National league, t didn't make any difference vhether it was a world series, an Il-Htnr game—or jnst n spring ox- ilbition.

And the Braves dropped 21 of those 33 one-run do- oi.sions. Along with that they played nine names where i.wo runs mado the difference, and they wound up in two ties. Along with one-run games the raves turn in more than their share of long contests. In fact, 33os- t.on teams have gotten into the longest games ever played in major league history.
