Branca came close to being unbeatable when right during the season, but the only time the young and large New York University alumnus asserted himself in,the World Series was when he was taking a shower.

Although fabled in song and story, the Cardinal Gas-House Gang was greatly overrated. With the Deans, ill-fated Bill DeLancey, Ripper Collins. Frisch, Durocher, Martin. Medwick, Orsatti, Terry Moore, Jack Rothrock and some more, the so-called Gas- House Gang accounted for only one of the numerous pennants That was in 1934. No one thought of calling the Red Birds the Gas-House Gang when they roared down in front' n 1930-31, and, following the con-' quest of '34, when the great Dizzy Dean clinched it on the final day, the Cards did not prevail again until '42. And that one and subsequent winners certainly were no part of Gas-House Gangs under the quietly efficient, yet thoroughly aggressive Billy Southworth and Eddie Dyer.
