When I came up, you couldn't play if you couldn't bunt, but home runs have pretty much taken over the game today. You have to hit at least 25 homers to be a hero today. The game has changed so much. People want to see homers. Look around the league. Bunting has become a lost art. The baseball purists appreciate and respect Tony Gwynn and "Boggsie", but your batting average doesn't matter as much anymore. They want people who can put the ball over the fence.

On August 2, 1907, I encountered the most threatning sight I ever saw on the ballfield. He was only a rookie, and we licked our lips as we warmed up for the first game of a doubleheader in Washington. Evidently the manager of the Senators had picked a rube out of the cornfields of the deepest bushes to pitch against us.....He was a tall, shambling galoot of about 20 with arms so long they hung out of his sleeves and with a sidearm delivery that looked unimpressive at first glance.....One of us imitated a cow mooing and we hollered at the manager: 'get your pitchfork ready, your hayseed's on his way back to the barn'......The first time I faced him I watched him take that easy windup and then something went past me that made me flinch. The thing just hissed with danger. We couldn't touch him....every one of us knew we'd met the most powerful arm ever turned loose in a ball park.
