Ford Frick. the feUa that used to be the commissioner before they put that general in there, sneaked down from the golf course to break the news. The place was jumpin* with newspaper fellas. The Mets regulars. St. Pete writers, wire service men, radio and television guys with their cameras and tape recorders. And the news photographers too. It was just like it used to be before the World Series. But Ol' Case is used to crowds. The writers eat up that mumbo-jumbo talk they call Stengelese.
