I read Marilyn’s interesting “blast….” and it is quite a sad story about a 6’5″ 230lb catcher (they don’t come like that anymore) born in 1881, that bounced around MLB and MiLB for a number of years. He battled with the drink and it sounds like he got some help from the teams he was playing for in the form of monetary rewards for sobriety. In the end he wound up like some sad sack who got shot by a bartender. I wonder what happened to the barkeeper…. probably nothing and no investigation. It was like that back then. Quite a sad story indeed.January 11, 2021 at 8:16 am #151503

On a normal Monday morning, The Cardinal Nation runs a free recap of the past week's #stlcards news plus a preview of what is just ahead. However, there is absolutely nothing to report as the "new December" has just six days remaining. Pitchers and catchers report in 23 days.
