With the Little League season underway here (and girls' Softball, too), the following explanation for a manager's wife, printed in the Ornaha Sunday World-Herald May 8, and written by Fred Thomas seems to hit the nail right on the head. It was given to us by Mrs Earl Lierley, Algona, and we are printing it in full here: They're daffy. No other explanation fits. Who? The men who forsake the hammock or golf course for such "iun" as: - Hitting baseballs as a blazing sun sizzles on a balding head. - Telling a proud mother the truth about the physical prowess of her son. - Painting old baseballs with white shoe polish to brighten them up. - Explaining to a youngster that you have 15 baseball uniforms and he is No. 16. - Conning a parent into making bases, selling raffle tickets, working on the ball diamond. - Bracing for the 15 rapid- fire telephone calls which come every time rain clouds appear, all asking: "We gonna play today?" - Giving up dinner to fix a faulty shin guard, picking up boys who live 36 blocks apart and handling the other details which go with the title of "Little League manager." In the big leagues a manager earns 40 to 80 thousand dollars a year and gets an annual trip to Florida. In the Little League, he gets a free cap, torn trousers and the chance for a weekly trip to help mow a ball diamond (with his own mower and gas, of course). Who is daffy enough to spend the spring and summer this way? I am. I still don't know how it happened. I just went over last spring to register our oldest boy in the league. A gentle man "asked disarmingly, "May we call on y,ou for a little help sometime?" I blushingly admitted having played, two years of college baseball and, once lashing a single to open a teenage all-star game in the Detroit Tigers' Briggs Stadium. Two days after that modest boast, a letter arrived. It said: "You are now manager of the Wilson team, Keystone Little League." I protested. The gentle man just smiled disarmingly and said: "You'll get plenty of help from your team's smart dads." He was partly right. The dads were smart - smart enough not to get involved. The only parent who had managed a team was a mother. She knew baseball, too. Her boy became our ace pitcher-catcher-home run hitter. We got through last season without an ulcer. It's a wonder. Have you ever; - See a 4-to-O lead vanish in the last inning as the foe puts together three walks, three errors, a hit batsman and one hit for five runs? - Delayed your family's vaction until the season ends, only to find three star players leaving on vacation just before the "big game?" - Been hit, on the same day, in the head with a bat, knee with a line drive and between the eyes with an umpire's faulty ruling? Our 1966 season starts soon and I have a problem. How do I explain to my wife that I enjoy it? NEED OFFICE SUPPLIES? We have'them. Upper Des Moines Pub.
