True. Billy Rogcll had reached'first base and Hank Greenberg was at bat, but Diz had ,111 11- run lead-. The game was 1 in the .bag — and then- he turned, around arid • got a! Ibolc at the Cardinal bullpen. • Four St. Louis pitchers.—all hard at work—stood therei warming up. Din wondered what his manager was thinking ot- —warming .up four pitchers when ciic Great Dc:ui had an 11 run lead with only two more outs to go._ Finally he decided that Frisch must be. getting ready .for the next season.- .And with that happy thought he turned to face the he-avy-hitting Groe-niberg. Dean had already struck out the Detroit slugger twice with his practically-invisible last ball. So the first thing-. Din did was look down into the^ Tiger dugout. He yelled over ..and-.asked .the, Tigers' why they'.hadn't sent up .t ptach- hitter for'their star. And Diz remembers that Grcenberg looked asi if he wanted to break liis bat over the pitcher's head. Then Dean turned his mind to pitching. He hauled 'back and blazed a- fast one past G-recnberg— strilfe o-iiq. Then. Dizzy checked iiia runner oh fit-stand let go with another Uhrec-alarm special — strike two. Hank looked stormier and stornv icr at the plate—like the legendary 'Casey at the Eat," waiting for the i third pitch. And .Diz found that. 1 s.o funny, that ho covered his face with .his glove to keep .from, laug-li- >•£• . ' That was /ill-. Manager ,.Frisch could stand.
