"It Is A Matter Of Opinion Sir..."
"'...And your opinion doesn't matter.' Umpire Lon Warneke assured the Cards' Red Schoendienst that Whitey Lockman indeed was safe at second. That's Lockman looking ready to play Tarzan at the upper right. The arm and leg at left belongs to the Cards' Stan Rojek. Appearances are deceiving. Rojek really wasn't trying to pick up Warneke and make a forward pass with him."
"Now When We Played This Game..."
"At least that's what Frank Crespi (right), reserve infielder on the 1942 Cardinal team which won the world's series from the Yankees, appears to be telling his one-time teammates during the get-together for the Old-Timers game here Sunday. The others are, from left, Howard Krist, Coaker Triplett, Whitey Kurowski and Harry Walker. Walker is a Cardinal coach now and Kurowski manages the Tulsa Oilers in the Texas League. Krist lives in Buffalo, N.Y., Triplett in North Carolina and Crespi is a St. Louisan."
"Oops, Pardon My Foot,"
"Might be Duke Snider's Comment after kicking both the ball and glove out of the hand of Pitcher Royce Lint in the eighth inning of yesterday's Brooklyn-Cardinal game at Busch Stadium. Snider had tripled off Lint, and when he uncorked a pitch which got away from the catcher, Duke took off for home. Cardinal Catcher Bill Sarni retrieved the ball and threw covering the plate, but the Dodger outfielder made sure he wouldn't be tagged by booting the ball out of the way."
"What, No Elephant Trunks?"
The Cardinals' heavy gear doesn't get to Florida by rail express alone.Traveling Secretary Leo Ward (left) and property man Butch Yatkeman do a lot of paper work to help it along. They are shown in the course of the annual spring check yesterday.
