What do you think you'll be expected to do when you put your boots on the tarmac in kabul. Would you be expected to do you. The number one function to people to groups of people say the thirty six civilians that outside the airport perimeter and also your multi-national colleagues so it's very unusual for irish troops. I need any troops really to be deployed just purely from a national perspective all military operations. I'm looking national from you. Divide your team half would would folks. I'm trying to pinpoint executive the irish side the printer and you'll have it folks and interacting much more likely uk and the us special forces and he's lucky national perspective. Language really is the come dominates would gravitate towards people who speak to spend nine right so you be on the ground there. You'd know who all thirty-six people are that you need to get out but quite remaining in the airport. Then you work with other forces from around the world to get say johnny murphy from the other side of kabyle are from kandahar to get them to the airport and get them on a plane. Especially it's i mean. We just two options. You can provide access gates and see airport parameters but access to the airport for for citizens are you could arranged remorse. Pick up the phone and it's important to point out is a joint multi disciplinary team. Where you have a problem foreign affairs diplomats and military rushing and very very closely together. And what's is over. The last ten years in africa in particular the range rain and our i've been working extensively to get him. I think it says go into fringe. Walter next seventy two six. No the taliban have pulled a deadline of august thirty forest which is only. It's only next monday or tuesday To get people out of there so this is this is an urgent job of work. And i wish we were deployed week. We are where we are so basically. That's the taliban stated position and we've no idea of what's going on and feeding informed networks between the us and the taliban from the state of the nation at the moment is midnight the thirty first of august which gives us a week window based at our people home. But who knows how things are going to pay out. And that's a key points to emphasize this a blanket canvas. We still don't know for sure whether truce get to the capital. We don't know what their mission will be successful. We know how they're going to get home precisely. But that's why you deploy you're the best drinks because only their skins excellent and very well developed but if a wonderful mindset as they have like temperaments and did the white composure and to to operate in such an environment that's that's we parked his despite harder. They're fantastic and they carry themselves with such humidity of important component of special forces to if the worst were to come to the worst. Carl and things got nasty before everybody was out. I assume again these nine people have the training and the expertise to just change tack absolutely disaster. The comprehensive contingency plan in perspective the most vulnerable most dangerous phase of destroyed on these is is in the last twenty four hours and mutcd the size of the aircraft being clydes Being reduced solarge aircraft marlins marlins and probably moved from sixteen to two over overtime. Basically troy down the finally collapsing of the airport perimeter. That's the most dangerous phase. Basically and that's what i'd be watching for that will for next week. Yeah so they're not going in a combat role. This is a liaison and logistics role. If it got nasty they would be able to cope with the twos and the tenants detest trump's and after colleagues as well. There's absolutely no doubt about that. This is a military operation called the meal. Noncombatant evacuation operations the issue at term forest our troops whenever guests themselves and people that they've been mandated to predict do. Do they have air cover like with. I mean whether they're basically the ice tea movie plugged into the multinational can be teenagers. that brings First of all air support faculty medical support and third intelligence so they would have access to all those three kids. Basically i can guarantee you just as very support available that stacked up above them cabinet moments force moore freeing perspective. You have said any company onto their boat and also higher up ten. You'd have the fast air of western air forces there needs to be called in. They can be made available. So so it's it's it's all there and all nine. Did you say 'cause this is coming into the phone. So maybe maybe the person didn't hear. Did you say that that our rangers find did train with british special forces does it. Does it happen what they claim. Much every special forces auto across the western arrest warrant vide- and and it's really important that cross training and interrupt entity training takes place especially for days like this matic depending on who might be in government in the future if if there was a change of government. I don't think so. I i think most people realize that the bad guys are talking So the guys to talk as well and it's very important that very small special forces community globally are allowed to train. That detracted each other. I can be there on first. Name terms the operators. And if you go back to chad even in two thousand this when not of european special forces deployed together to definitely messages mean. Most men were seen this together in sweden or or invasion austria. and before. You know that's knows very cohesive us when people talk about.

Pete's belief obviously that didn't happen but was terrific. I must've saw me. She was a wide margin. Win again you have to bear in. Mind that it probably. The white margin was probably exaggerated because of the conditions. But even so. I mean it was great. See johnny mathis get his first boy. Scout went a reward for his latest cracking couplets seasons than we knew conditions. We played to this village advantage. That's exactly what she got. She got an even with a ten pound rise. The win at the car at still wasn't enough stalker and she was just another one who has ridden prominently and again when the grounds then switches and confessing oscar. It's very difficult pegged back those british prominently on the right track with again. A whole renervous of on this trip in time at least powering away and showing dot stamina was really get from her on the second. It was good fun from her from the back than ideal from the back of the widow on the eventual third. Who'll says well in a messy back instead. He traveled into this so calling from simla position to the winner but on the wing and looks like once dropped back in trip for ha. How how charles. She traveled into this race before not finding as much as the front two in front of us but yeah creative belief when he didn't you do have to take in two respects the she did look so impressive because of how good ride she has given and the conditions but sushi doubt she does the. Yeah a group philly at least anyway. These conditions taking full time Poor for twelve grand breeder lawrence kennedy no relation landscape and another one from the family. Of all tat. So congratulations to johnny march. I kind feel as though we'll go for two zero here. This is a slight part of me. That thinks johnny murphy could have had a double on the day. I think merrin was little bit. I'm looking at five thirty five. But it goes to quick thorne an ocean murphy and significantly takes the last the palace of holyroodhouse stakes over five furlongs again. This was in heavy grown. So quick thorn is seventy two favorites significantly. Tend to you take them both. I yeah i mean. I love quake thrown. I think he's just such Great for a sheen again to get another widow. There's while which was awesome. Say he's just appropriate mud. Logging loves this. I mean he's already a small holes but with his strides each jesse he just eats up. Soft graham so that even hate offers good software was pretty testing. I know about whether win to his name but he is still well handicapped even on the back of the us seem by bryce that he faced a just really really like a whole. So why like i. Did she say merit who was a little bit unlucky in that as well But cracking from quakes the should be plenty more to come from him. Adds that would significantly as always good to see called Have having a winner hair as well because his will necessarily be coming into coming into roy lasted either kind of touched on that price to it as well save Turned around as very often. See with these types of who says that s- obey the good host can get you out of trouble. They can continue to run that race regardless Reading of the cliff lee as well. He was actually a group of buff me out the british racing school. He was just sarid that he started out that other british racing school just before me and he just knew he was going to go on to be a talented jockey. an-and so happy that he's managed to get his rewards for his years. Were anyway again. It was just a really gutsy performance from significantly heads to fend off. Challenges down the sound size As well adjusted reached the blind and time and dealt with conditions possibly while say really good couple of wins erin and gracie performances from horses with stamina again coming to the full. Look at you name dropping. That's what we like to hear always always like to prevent that. He wouldn't even remember for sure he wouldn't. He wouldn't remember the super bowl right. The five o'clock on saturday. The final day The wokingham stakes goes to a for a brief second kate. Hey jones e. loomed up. Not again fresh blinder for james rancho. Just kinda horsey excels with royal hand. Ultimately takes the race for david evans and shane. Kelly with the queen source king's lynn. We were so kothe. Finishing curve was your take all. It was an outstanding performance from radio. Han this was. I mean it seriously. It was just a quality win because you win the wokingham as a three year. Olds off of this mock. It just doesn't happen. I mean even thirty three-year-old lesson learn the mock. The robot was running off his head because the last three zero to win. The wokingham was in nineteen eighty seven. So this was an astounding performance carrying nine saturdays. But what a ride is well because revert. Honey you're checked upon leaving those deliberately to sessile him in behind us and he was then last on the site fruit before nothing human to the race switching to come more towards the center track than busting through under just an ubeku. Shane kelly who just gave him teach a ride in. He's just being a revelation disease. This whole spat. George sculpted his previous To steal campus heights. That row holidays now scaled since joining david's Ship but all. I do i just have to the mention just because they re policy. This os historian Ville see exactly the heights. He was burgess scale of the progression And yet not to detract too for from this. Because i'll be just olsen for his car connections. He's clearly before he's he's a group one performer in the mating because to draw back into a handicap to do that of this mark is just amazing boozy bit of placing as well by david evans. He could have easily targeted debris races but instead came back to haunt decaf hit and he's still managed to win with three road in the woking of is just it's wild most rapidly improving colts bonkers of absolutely bunker stuff and i'm sure they thought when he when he was beating the saints themselves because he went to a bit of a losing run there for a while probably thinking themselves. We've got out of jail there. You know we've we've really suckered them there I say losing when he gets dumped by riflemen. What's happened to rifleman. Geldart win win win. Second fifth second win fifth win win wins. it roy. laskar beats dragging similar to the process. Like he's a definite definite group. Dragon symbol and twenty thoughts. You know the benefit of hindsight's a great thing. But if you do that to yourself you'll just drive yourself insane right. That was the wokingham. The golden gate stakes..

Thanks very much with takedown. Take anything places eighty thing at all. Oh the lost left for shoe so possibly can be marked up for this. I don't know how. Genuine nicest as i think gavin ryan was absolutely fantastic on her and i don't know if i want to be backing her at a single figure bryce in similar company or even open grade but if she's another big price again in a group one i give her shopping said. It's jonathan cousin and rob hamlin with roger verion and dot man again. Jim crowley Fighting at this time. Around no issues with jim. Grau right for granted and It was tremendous finished but loving dream shot nicest with divinely to be fair really fought out a tremendous finish when most of us were drawn towards nicest Dubai fountain an noon star. And that's what made this really really intriguing. Yeah it didn't have plenty enough ways into this race in the majority of as wasted. Because i know that we've loving dreams. She was a big price is philly again. She's another warm with her. Those plenty enough money for before the because she came in from forty to one to eighteen at the off and you can understand. Why with wonderful hindsight now that she she probably was overpriced. A you can see why the money then came back because she's just freak ganguly philly with just full saas to her name where this was already his second sauce already socio trip that she wanted it fulmer of being very good included not when it will the hampton is a two year old and she ran in that radiated weatherbys phillies novus where she was only beaten by noon. Stop about with glee the clear of Plenty of promising phillies in not racist. Well then you look lovely dream staging to on noon saw to favor without into twenty volt line again.

Just on the goth of dubai fountain who he knew rotational along a nice even gallup whereas the eventual second sharda. Who had been drawn outs in eleven slow sedate. Pavlovian touch will sasso for big much. Further back in failed at the made us made the difference between first. And second for me because rob hav lead it not move gained four legs. Jim crowley for traveling the same distance but to get a better position and then she was only bee's infrequent select which does make you wonder and of course it was a gamble for up to have to detain h. And kiko wide a bank of the pace settling down early but it was a risk paid off and she showed very as shoot in the finish that so she i mean she could shirts next and then she could fully star conscious path and routed the irish eggs next than they seem to be the racist because the team all my h target i think they stage anyway. I haven't seen any of the courts but we know that they they tend to save and say it'd be interesting of again with her confirmation. She should have plenty improvement yet to call with more racist. She gets big time. And i could not have said that better myself. So let's Touch on johnny. Murphy's fully crepe relief love the source absolutely love.

"Of all the socials that we've been pursuing the last 24 hours at D. J V show. What's the highlight? Well, The big question is should members of Congress be expelled from committees for saying or doing anything questionable, and Chris Burton believes it's definitely worth looking into David Bold repost. If that were the case, there would not be any members left and Johnny Murphy says there should be a psych test done, and everyone should have to pass an exam on democracy it before even being considered. Or any position interesting. All right, Who decides what the question moot behavior is who decides? What questionable comments? Is there committee? Is there something some regulation written down? That's where you draw the line this, you know they're all talking about. There's not case, Ms Green. But there come other some other things. I mean, Certainly AOC is said plenty of controversy of things over the years. They've been a lot of things that have come out of the box attacked inside the Capitol when she was in her office like that. Yeah. Yes, story yesterday. Yeah, but I'm just saying what Where's the line? I think that's part of the consideration here, Right? What are the thoughts? J. Let's see what you are. Did you allow your child to play football? Given what we now know about concussions? Cheryl G son played football until a sophomore year and got a neck stinger, which is a nerve injury to the Where is she? I want to know where these people are. They had do identify where they're from. So what state is she in? No idea. Um, but he decided to quit on his own after he got that injury, and Steve not I don't know where any of these people are, Um, Steve Knots Post. We experience our youth. Only once. Go ahead, let them play. Suzanne Warren says no football for her son but has encouraged Gulf and says, Hey, it's a lifetime sport. You can always keep playing. Yeah, Unless you get hit in the head with a golf ball, I suppose the other side you can read into this that there are dangers in every sport, whether or not I almost got it through the golf ball, and I went with my father once on the golf course. And then you know, I always walk. Then whenever is with him on the golf course. He always walked backwards. Golf balls coming. Yeah, I get that. Or if you're with somebody who's not a really great golfer, you have to watch out for the actual clubs flying in to write exactly what about what I see. There's a focus on the cancel culture, which is something I don't think we talk enough about on this program. So where'd that come from? Especially with what's going on with Market Wallen yesterday. A lot of station radio stations made the war today. His music Yeah, even more doing that because he made some racist comments over the weekend. Grace. Georgia is four. Cancel culture believes the court of public opinion speaks and decide to it wants to hear from and who it doesn't Gordon Myers is also is a Gordon Myers is against Cancel culture. Reasoning you are entitled to not like someone. But that doesn't educate that doesn't equate to actively trying to force others to feel the same way and silence. Some once again is degrees. It's you know this? How much is too much? Who decides that it seems that the collective culture when it comes this guy wall in I noticed yes. Every time about one company and today tria form or have just said they're all their stations. You can't play any of his music. And that's the end of that story. So Mm. And at what point do we say this is cancel culture versus I don't want to be associated with somebody like this. Make up your own stations are well within their rights.

"This is all of it. My guest is Bill Madden. He's written a book called Tom Seaver. H Horrific life. We'd love to hear from you for the times He were memory 6464357280, or send us a tweet or message at Instagram or Twitter. Same handle for both at all of it. Of you. And why see? So, Bill you write in your book, You write your book that some of the seeds of the Mets win 69 world Syriza were planted during the strike at the beginning of the season. Why were the informal workouts that Seaver organized for pitchers and catchers during the strike so important for the team's camaraderie in morale? Well, I think that's that's what it was. It was for camaraderie. Uh, the strike interrupted the beginning of spring training and Savor. It took it upon himself as the titular leader of the team by now, he this is now his third year in the big leagues, and he'd been already established as one of the top pitchers. In the National League and certainly earning the nickname the franchise, which he later got, But he was already the franchise by that point. And anyway, he took it upon himself. In this in spring training to get all this as many teammates as he could down there in ST Petersburg. Start doing some informal workouts, and the whole purpose of it was not just stay in shape. They were already in pretty good shape by that point or developing any of them. Pitches or taking extra batting practice had nothing to do with that. Seaver felt like it was important that they established a comic camaraderie among them. Maybe the beginning of a special team chemistry and that's exactly what it accomplished. Then they open the season and there was it. There was a different feeling around the remember they had not had a winning season until that point. 68 was while they started to make progress on the Gil Hodges in 68, they still had another losing season that year. When they got back to spring training after having these in informal workouts. A fever told me for the book, he said. I could tell there was a different attitude among the players players on that team. Throughout his career with the Mets. There was this dynamic where he pitched well, didn't get a whole lot of help from Mets batters. Why was the organization unable to give Seaver the help he needed? Well, there was a lot of reasons for that. They they were always seemingly always looking for that big middle of the order bat, which they finally got in 1919 69 midway through the season. Johnny Murphy, the general manager, executed a trade in which they got done, Clendenin. Big right handed hitting first baseman and they got him from Montreal. And, uh, Clendenin was, uh, Seaver said That was that was the one element that we were missing on that team, and he meant so much to that team and he was the reason If they really started to put it together that year because, Seaver said We're looking for that big back for so long, and now we had this guy and contentment and immediate impact on the team. But very interesting stat about Seaver tells you everything you need to know about what a hard luck pitcher he really was for his entire career. His 3.94 run support. Is the third lowest all time of any picture behind Just No. One. Ryan and Gaylord Perry, both fellow Hall of Famers. He had 305 starts of nine innings. Pitched on giving up one or fewer runs. 105 starts. He fits nine innings and gave up one or less runs. In those starts. He was 90 and three With 12 non decisions. It was. It was just remarkable how the matter where he went when he went over to the Cincinnati Reds, the big red machine. He didn't get nearly the run support that he thought he was going to get with him with the Reds. So that was just a time ship, but he was he was good enough to win 311 games despite that lack of run support. Truscott creams on line four. Aye, Karim. You went to a game You saw Seaver. Maybe I'm not his best day. I enjoy listening to you guys. Mr. Madden. I love your articles. Daily News if I'm correct On that front. Like I remember back in the 1971. In my opinion, he should have won the sun Young sun young that year over, uh Ferguson Jenkins, but there was a game. It's a stadium. Receiver throws a bad pitch. He has this way of dipping his head down, and he's like, Oh, my goodness. Why did I throw that? Richie Allen launched it when you play at the Los Angeles Dodgers. Anyone straight into the number seven train? No, never did nothing. Get that and see what just shook his head. Like, Why did I throw that pitch? What a good story. Thanks for calling in. Jeff is on line two. And Jeff, you're a professional squash player. What And I actually met Tom Seaver in the mid eighties. I take it He was pretty good at squash played double squash. And I played in a pro Am and and he was On the other team, and we had a great time. It was really, really cool to meet him. And I think what I what I remembered most What? He had three trucks for legs. I don't think I've ever seen a player. On the squash quarter in any sport, But like Chester, that's what I remember. Thanks for calling in. That's it, though, is how you know he for most of his career, he was he didn't get hurt. He was pretty great shape. How? How do you take care of himself so well? Well, he attributed that to his lower body, uh, his big his legs and his hips. Hey, just any work, and he worked harder actually in the off season on his lower body, Then he did a Zafar, his arm and throwing was concerned. And of course, he had the famous drop and drive delivery wherein which, after every game, his knee was his right knee was dirty. From hitting the hitting the mound, completing his delivery and, um, that delivery was A lot of pitchers tried to copy but it it wasn't that easy because required having those big legs. And, uh and strong..

Listen, obviously it didn't go well, but he wanted given you five. You don't mean the old, you know he worked. No, He definitely stayed out there and worked.

It's really fun isn't it was like really fun. It's fun to watch it like this where you can feel that way. Maybe it's almost now to the point where I'm I'm almost getting greedy. Get stopped. You got a little talking. I am, too. I'm getting cocky, too. I know it's hard, not to three huge home runs last night. Dick makes it five to what you say about Du Bon, who's getting better? The flat out. Mauricio Du Bon is improving before our eyes. His last, I think, is the numbers back it up. He's just because there was a point. If you'd ask me about three weeks ago, where was with Duba and not very good, but back then, you know, I was thinking, Ultimately, I said, help. There'll be a spot for him on a 25 man, But he's just gonna be a utility defense guy. Ah, to spell a guy on a day off that base running miss half the other night too. That was bad. It was for sure Stakes happened. But but But first of all, a He's not a bad center fielder at all. No, he came up as a second baseman shortstop, and they're like, Hey, buddy, go play Center field goal hidden. Grab your own beloved. You're going Knox we had on the Giants early on was that They're asking guys to play defensive positions that aren't necessarily theirs. And they were playing Daddy. But Bonds Macon improvement and then he hits the bomb to tie it up. And then dude, here comes your guy. He can't be stopped. He's the man of the month. A player of the month. Darren Rough, Darren Blanken rough and I'm buying the mic Morris five. I'm buying, especially after the pinch hit bomb.

"Forty eight on how rose with you until seven we're gonna replay game one of the two thousand fifteen National League division series between the Mets and the Dodgers just a little after seven o'clock tonight but we are so happy to be joined by hall of fame manager and a guy who might have managed to even become the general manager of the Mets one day back in the past that was Whitey Herzog and one god do it ten minute interview on we were on the man on seventeen minutes so I'm going to assign us and I'm gonna tell you again I enjoyed talking to the and thanks again for our own leader president from returning my career thank you very much all right all right away thank you and unfortunately I just might have been some signals crossed there about how long we're going to keep widely because again I was gonna go back to and I'll tell you what I do know about the transpired in the interim period April second nineteen seventy two was certainly the worst day in the history of the New York Mets franchise that's when they lost urologists who died of a heart attack suddenly there was no warning we had no idea that the Mets would be in need of a manager and so within a couple of days they hired yogi Berra and look you know he I suppose was the logical choice to the extent that he provided some comfort food if you will a known commodity a beloved figure in New York on Friday have been working his way through the Mets farm system as the director of player development and was in a position where his credentials probably would have made him at least as as good if not the leading candidate for a job that he did not get a lot of the reason for that apparently is that here I'm Donald Graham just never got along in part of the reason for that and some fortunate and why he wasn't able to stay any longer because we kind of ask him specifically about that spot you know why he basically used to tell grant in so many words to just stay out of the baseball operations let the baseball people handle it and it was so bad it may be the wrong word it might be a little more flavorful than that it might have been so hostile at times between the two of them that believe it or not when gill passed away wanting her song was forbidden to attend the funeral in Brooklyn the Mets simply wanted him to stay put and avoid what would be you know even though people would be paying their respects to Gil what would inevitably have been a barrage of questions about why do you and potentially managing the Maxwell that never transpired and shortly after the nineteen seventy two season why he left and became the manager of the Texas Rangers and we told you about that a little while ago but he could just as conceivably have been a general manager with a mess because when Bob shifting took over in nineteen seventy you may not remember this but Johnny Murphy had been the general manager of the Mets when they won the World Series in nineteen sixty nine and Johnny died suddenly of a heart attack before the nineteen seventy season so Bob shifting who basically wanted to retire did the Mets a favor and one of the front office to take over as the general manager with the expectation that would last more than a year or two while it lasted through the nineteen seventy four season and at any point between nineteen seventy two that were really nineteen seventy and nineteen seventy four it was just it's conceivable that one could have become the general manager but instead about shifting took it through the seventy four season and then they made Joe McDonald the general manager of the New York Mets of you know there are a lot of ways you can look back and say well maybe one should have been the guy and there was even one more chance they had many years later after the Mets were sold between the nineteen seventy nine and nineteen eighty seasons they were looking for a general manager and there's certainly no arguing with the success of Frank Cashen had won her song was one of the finalists for that job too before you eventually became the manager and general manager of the St Louis cardinals so even though it was for shorter period of time that we hope to have them we thank Whitey Herzog for joining us but if you want to know more think back on just a little bit more about what what he brought to the New York Mets ultimately it was two championships won in nineteen sixty nine one in nineteen seventy three sixty nine the World Championship seventy three the National League pennant you go back to some of the big hits of the big plays of the Mets had about nineteen sixty nine season any cream pool of course has been a I met since day one although not technically because he was signed as a bonus maybe in their first year nineteen sixty two and then eventually of course played with them through nineteen seventy nine but the first big game of the match ever played in their history was on the eighth of July nineteen sixty nine the game was tied in the ninth inning Eddie crane Poole was batting score tied three three in the bottom of the knife against the Chicago Cubs in the Mets first pennant race ever this was on the eighth of July nineteen sixty nine.

"Is active in the national grassroots movement moved to amend and in community bill of rights efforts to protect a higher is natural resources her occupations travels studies and activism reflect her interest in the dynamics of gender race class and public policies let's welcome our author hello Betty ready for story so I'd first like to thank the Roosevelt library in the National Archives for this opportunity to share the experiences of the black pioneers of the women's army corps I am especially pleased to be able to acknowledge here at Hyde Park yet another of Eleanor Roosevelt's achievements and contributions to this nation this one not particularly well known the First Lady was a champion of the women's army corps with a whack as I'll be using that acronym the the afternoon even less known was her interest in the success of African American wax her husband's contributions to this end were less personally directed to these women yet immensely important in nineteen forty president Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed off on a memorandum detailing the war department's policy of equal treatment of military personnel regardless of race upon the establishment of the wax two years earlier two years later this policy carried over to the new female personnel thereby providing a platform for black wax who was serving in a segregated military after all to assert their rights for equal treatment Franklin you have no idea what you start it and Eleanor I think you did can you all hear me as this is a lot of feedback or anything okay okay this is an the glory theirs help for black women took on the army during World War two tells the story of one of the most well publicized court martial of the war in nineteen forty five black wax strike at fort Devons in Massachusetts now for years when I mention this project the most common response I got was I did even though black women were in the military during World War two wrinkly I'm not sure that I did either at least not before embarking on this project the fascination definition of Americans including this one with the ground breaking achievements of women has long fail to recognize that women often translates to white women this was certainly how Americans interpret the term in the nineteen forties when the nation's military services plunged into global war turned to women to help alleviate their severe personnel shortages following the army's lead the navy marines Coast Guard and Air Army Air Corps created their own women's forces though none of these initially accepted black wax for black recruits only the well acted a compromise I argue that the war department offered civil rights leaders whose demand for demand for integration of the armed forces it firmly rejected this afternoon I will introduce the fort Devons wax strike unfolding it in a narrative form as they do in the book the characters and plot provide the context to explore army personnel no policies and how they lead to the strike court martial and public interest in the case at the time it was a sensational trial I will conclude with a brief thoughts on why the for Devin strike is so little known today I promise your story which I'll begin in nineteen forty four when the four women at the center of the forty seven strike and court martial in listed I was young was a middle class Washington DC residents with a well paid government job because he also had some training as a nurse recruiters assured her that the army needed her as a medical technician Johnny Murphy a northerner have clerical skills no job and like soldiers since time immemorial an appetite for adventure I've been cleaning jobs ana Morrison and from Kentucky and merry green from Texas so all the army's offer a specialized training as an escape from domestic service all for these women would have been familiar with the wax recruiting campaigns they were intensive and prolific and they were pleading with women pleading with them to do your part join the wacs now there's an urgency to this they also would have noticed that these calls to duty featured white women exclusively nevertheless they saw the wack as an extraordinary opportunity young Murphy Morrison and green were among the sixty five hundred black women of the total of a hundred forty thousand wax who enlisted to help the war effort during the war they want to help the war effort demonstrate the pastry it's is on and the skills learned in the army advance for post war employment prospects how then did these four women eager to do their part land in the doc as defendants in a court martial the subtitle of the book offers a concise response young Murphy Morrison green had challenges the army will going to little bit more detail one of the it also makes for a good a little thanks for the Cup okay so these women had listed to fill specialized jobs such as medical technicians clerical workers drivers or any of the hundreds of other army train skills the whacked advertised instead of four Devin's white wax perform these types of assignments at one of the post hospitals while black wax cleaned at another words at another the relegation of the latter two menial labor with common across the country consequently so with the resistance of these women to discriminatory treatment the strike a four Devin's was the most publicized these protests but it was by no means the only one conflicts were inevitable African American women viewed their inclusion in the military and the army's new policy of equal treatment of black personnel signs of a gender and racial progress in the country in contrast the war department considered these temporary emergency these as temporary emergency measures it re clue recruited black men in large numbers as it always did in a crisis and for the first time in its history in listed women because it felt it had no other choice it did so to win the war not advance the status of subordinate citizens as a result the what what what apartments policies for personnel sought to maintain the status quo even as it heavily relied on these subordinate citizens thus while it promised African American soldiers equal treatment it continued to continue to racially segregate them prohibit them from command positions over white troops and relegate the majority to menial labor similarly while it accepted women in the military is funnel them into a separate and a temporary core the HUAC was supposed to dissolve after the war it also limited its members to assignments eighteen appropriately feminine for the more when the war department drafted directives for African Americans it did so with black men in mind likewise when directing those for drafting those for wax it did so with white women in mine only the war department's leadership assume that the sum of its policies with overlap to cover black wax rather than overlap however they often excluded them for example the motor pool at fort Devons hell training programs for black soldiers male soldiers and others for white wax but is Alice young discovered when she requested a transfer to the motor pool there were none for black wax as a result the motor motor pools commander tonight young's request for transfer he also rejected any notion that discrimination was a factor after all the motor pool offer training to African Americans and it offer training to women where's the discrimination well the arming prided itself on its uniform treatment of its increasingly diverse personnel black wax regularly slip through the cracks of its policies in this manner military policies mere civilian laws which likewise overlooked black women let's take factory work for example Roosevelt's new deal legislation during the Great Depression did not mention race yet it's labor protections primarily benefit at the white men that white managers overwhelmingly hired in nineteen forty one civil rights leaders a key use their merging clout to pressure Roosevelt to create the fair employment practices committee the F. T. P. C. for bait defense contractors from discriminating against black workers but it was silent on gender discrimination to comply therefore Bactris mainly hired black men what time civilian shortages brought white women to factory floors black women also apply for these jobs but we're not taken on very rarely I should say in fact in nineteen forty two in Detroit's industrial factories fewer than a hundred works in fact in in these factories hundred black women black female women again fell through the cracks despite the invisibility of black women in state policies and the historically appalling treatment of black men in the military African American women had reasons to expect better reason better opportunities and greater respect in the wax then they had as civilians I'll mention three first as previously noted the war department had agreed to a policy of equal treatment regardless of race second that shortage of wax to fill essential non combat military occupations was so heavily publicized that the women knew that their service was great were greatly needed and in fact they were greatly needed military didn't take advantage of it but they were greatly needed third the armies claims to be fighting against Tierney inspired a motor home of hope that it would not that it would not tolerate Tierney in its forces these factors involving thousands of black women to in less rhetoric did not always match reality certainly circumstances different around the country yet most black wax at some point during their time in the service experience the same types of discrimination that young Murphy Morrison and green encountered when these women arrived at the induction center in fort des Moines Iowa the weather was under pressure to meet mounting personal requests from commanders to expedite the process it quickly trained and transferred them to assignments at least this was the case for white wax soon since commit few commanders requested black recruits most of them languished for months at Ford they for the morning young Murphy Morrison green who arrived at different times during the spring and early summer of nineteen forty four did not receive transfer orders until late October months later as part of a hundred person detachment the army sent the four to forty sevens to work under the command of colonel Walter Crandall the administrator of the post hospitals unbeknownst to them Crandall have fought this transfer tooth and nail first he insisted he didn't need them later he won his superiors that with black men on post the presence of black women which surely lead to in his words social problems with what the mowing overflowing with unassigned black wax in we're talking a thousand black wax at different times where is what we're actually just go through and be sent elsewhere the war department was not having any of this in order to handle to put in the requisition how we employ the women was left to him nearly intending to marginalize these truths that he did not want Crandall requested wax without military skills so you can place all those needed to staff the detachment the cadre as orderly as orderlies in the hospital members of the detachment arrived at fort Devons excited to at last begin their training and their assignments imagine their surprise then when ushered into jobs that consisted of cleaning wards and waiting on staff and patients assuming that this was temporary after all they joined the list it based on certain agreements the new arrivals inquired about their training well diligently carrying out their current task they really cleaned up the place we call their supervisor Sargent Herald week with the commitment was less contemporaries it may seem in the nineteen forties seventy percent of employed black women worked in service jobs roughly the same proportion of fort Devons black wax assigned to cleaning duties and incidentally this was the case throughout the with all wax about seventy percent of them.

Birthday I'm like can be any better yeah well you just be happy they got your name right I felt it right he was dead when you still well you know some of us are not here from that sixty nine but you know it's it's like mortality start sneaking up on you and you don't have you don't have the call there but it's cool and and and you know I said something about that sixty nine team Fred Sheeran's wonderful line about he wrote on the board before the game seven for the Stanley put arrangements flyers Philadelphia flyers win this one tonight boys and we walked together for ever and and you know whether we're on this planet or not that's sixty nine team walks together for others no doubt and you know the whole story about that whole team of course your early days with the match on the whole number thing with Kenny Boyer that was quite stop of eventually you want up with number four but that whole season are coming all the way back as you guys did left for dead yeah hi in the clubs in August I mean as miraculous as the playoff run was the August September run one of the great civil you know I remember in August where we're playing good we've run off a bunch of strings we got done playing down in in the middle of of June we got we got all the pieces in place Stever and cruise men and gentry and all those guys for their pitching nine innings and winning games and we're ten back at the cubs and we're like are we gonna like arrive at some degree of respectability and end up as the pumpkin in somebody else's Cinderella story seem like you know this could happen you know and it was like when are they going to fade once something going to happen to them and it was in August near the end of August and that's why we didn't do a lot of score board looking because we were back six ten game yeah and then all of a sudden the end of August first week in September the company's hit the skids and they hit it big time and we're winning three out of four and we blew by like you know on the expressway somebody changing their dark you know who to New Orleans they need to blow right by him and then of course you have the you know the they're the win over Atlanta and that was great great which by the way you did not play I had no weapons I had a scare you know what a scare is I was on deck warming up it's like a it's like a that's called a scared looking were you disillusioned that you did play that to I was I was I was getting rusty yes I didn't play in ten days right for the World Series but you know what our lefthanded hitters out hit Henry Aaron and Rico Carty and Orlando Cepeda and keep this a month in spring training the Braves were trying to trade Joe Torrey to the mat yep and they want it they want to guys like Nolan Ryan Gerry gentry maybe Kuzman you know I mean you know they wanted our good young arms that we're going to pick for us that you're Johnny Murphy does not make that deal they trade Tory straight up for Orlando Cepeda yeah and are they don't get the pitch in they want the Braves and we out now are left handed platoon out hit some out scores them in a in a high scoring you know best three out of five and and we sweep on well if money said you didn't play in that series but of course and go back to the sixty nine World Series game for we play the audio Brooks Robinson hits his line drive and it's destined to go to the wall to one's going to score and you guys gonna lose out game four and a lot of people to this day still say including most of your teammates if that Paul gets by you only lose out around him they don't think you know when the world severable yes so you will be given credit that one catching game for for basically winning the World Series well yeah and and the advisability of taking the line I took in making the catch or trying to make the catch is you know even down Clinton and who's a lot smarter guy that I was he's a he was a clubhouse lawyer right the only club house lawyer I've ever met who is actually going to law school pass the bar in practice low when I was finished with baseball now we learn that guy he was perfect piece for us in sixty nine but but you know I would have it would have taken me more time to think about why I shouldn't have gone after that ball and just go right and I'd taken thousands of line drives ground balls from Eddie Joost working on my off field because I made a bunch of mistakes out there Shays outfield was hard to play because the stands stood tall and they're always people in there so the background the ball never came out of the background the backgrounds Mercurio it's it's it's fluid and and and dependent on the atmosphere it's a tough background you can learn how to deal with that and block that out and read that ball off the bat and I read it off the bat and I made the best line I could make in you know look honestly ninety five percent of the way their eyes and how we're in trouble but you can't stop you know like three four strides in and laid out and you know everybody says if you don't catch it it goes to the wall where you there's a lot of things that can happen between catch and going to the wall I could and knocked it down as possible it hits me in the web about two inches before it finds grass Sanko lord Jesus Ellison's Ron Swoboda is the guest the book is here's the catch a memoir of the miracle Mets in more and you joke about the somebody has to this question how long you gonna keep living off this one cats and your answer is very funny how how long have I got well I said to somebody a lot of guys had a career I had a cat you know it you know there was a slow you you being humble those what a home run to me it's a big big hit by with the game winning RBI in in the game when you beat the Baltimore Orioles see being humble well I think that says more about Gil Hodges who in my humble opinion is is is is should be in the hall of biggest omission no biggest omission the sun rose about it makes you question the process but he's got another year and and that and that's just has to happen but Hodges Hodges would go with hot you know in in this age of analytics where they can measure everything and they know exactly who should be here and who should be here hot skews the percentages in a positive direction and you got to pay attention to it and that's skews percentages up and down if your call then you make a move when I was hot in that game and he let me hit off that side arm right hander and I'd love to have one down the left field line that don Buford doesn't catch just like I missed his ball to start the work right here is because I just misplaced it but we yeah but with the go ahead run and and you know I'm standing at second base think in holy crap this is the first time it's in our hands it is enough it's ours to lose right and you had it hotel Bernie and I in the listeners about that year the jets they won the Superbowl that year the knickerbockers when the NBA championship band walks on the moon we've got the drunken hi kids up at Woodstock yelling and screaming you guys won the World Series tell us what it was like to be in New York in nineteen sixty nine well yeah and you mention all those things the identity politics the the riots at the stone wall in gay awareness only was it yeah I have some friends there looked on the wrong side I understand no longer friends I understand but they they had a point to make and I made it and and and you have all of that there was money in the system it but it was a very fractious time between the Vietnam War in any war back then it seemed like it was a time when any everything and anything could happen and the least predictable would have been us one in sixty nine and we were tuned and all that stuff but you live in kind of a bubble as a baseball player they're they're driving your to the ball park into the airport and back home and stuff but we were when when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon we're in Montreal and we finish up that's the end of the first half of the season we're trying to jump normally we jump on our little your nine at charter and head back to New York we've got mechanical problems in the airplane and and so we repaired to the lounge in over a couple of problems that's when we watch Neil Armstrong take is most of that for man giant leap for mankind live on television it was a heady experience and I was a big sort of flight aviation NASA fan space travel I love that stuff and and and and we you know any crane pollen are their clinking glasses going wow man this is like an amazing

the city failed sing Happy Birthday I'm like can be any better yeah well you just be happy they got your name right I spelled it right he was dead when you still well you know some of us are not here from that sixty nine but you know it's it's like mortality start sneaking up on you and you don't have you don't have the call there but it's cool and and and you know I said something about that sixty nine team Fred sure as wonderful line about he wrote on the board before the game seven for the Stanley put arrangements flyers Philadelphia flyers win this one tonight boys and we walk together for ever and and you know whether we're on this planet or not that's sixty nine team walks together for others no doubt then you know the whole story about that whole team of course your early days with the match on the whole number thing with Kenny Boyer that was great stuff eventually you want help with number four but that whole season coming all the way back as you guys did left for dead yeah hi in the clubs in August I mean as miraculous as the playoff run was the August September Ron one of the great civil you know I remember in August where we're playing good we've run off a bunch of strings we got done Clinton in in the middle of of June we got we got all the pieces in place Stever includes men and gentry and all those guys for their pitching nine innings and winning games and we're ten back at the cubs and we're like are we gonna like arrive at some degree of respectability and end up as the pumpkin in somebody else's seem like you know this could happen you know and it was like when are they going to fade wants something going to happen to them and it was in August near the end of August and that's why we didn't do a lot of score board looking because we were back six ten game yeah and then all of a sudden the end of August first week in September the company's hit the skids and they hit it big time and we're winning three out of four and we blew by him like you know on the expressway somebody changing their car you know who to yeah New Orleans and you did blow right by him and then of course you have the you know the they're the win over Atlanta and I thought was great great which by the way you did not play I had no weapons I had a scare you know what a scare is I was on deck warming up like a like a that's called a scary looking were you disillusioned that you did play in that I was I was I was get rusty yes I didn't play in ten days right for the World Series but you know what our lefthanded hitters out hit Henry Aaron in Rico Carty and Orlando Cepeda and keep this a month in spring training the Braves were trying to trade Joe Torrey to the mat yeah and they want it they want to guys like Nolan Ryan Gerry gentry maybe Kuzman you know I mean you know they wanted our good young arms that we're going to pitch for us that you're Johnny Murphy does not make that deal they trade Tory straight up for Orlando Cepeda yeah and are they don't get the pitching they want the Braves and we out in our lefthanded platoon out hit some out scores them in a in a high scoring you know best three out of five and and we sweep on well if money said you didn't play in that series but of course and go back to the sixty nine World Series game for we play the audio Brooks Robinson hits his line drive and it's destined to go to the wall to one's going to score and you guys gonna lose out game four and a lot of people to this day still say including most of your teammates if that Paul gets by you only lose that around him they don't think you know when the world severable yes so you will be given credit that one catching game for for basically winning the World Series well yeah and and the advisability of taking the line I took in making the catch or trying to make the catch is you know even down Clinton and who's a lot smarter guy that I was he's a he was a clubhouse lawyer right the only club house lawyer I've ever met who is actually going to law school has the bar in practice low when I was finished with baseball we love that guy he was perfect piece for us in sixty nine but but you know I would it would have taken me more time to think about why I shouldn't have gone after that ball and just go right and I'd taken thousands of line drives ground balls from Eddie Joost working on my offer the because I made a bunch of mistakes out there Shays out field was hard to play because the stands stood tall and they're always people in there so the background the ball never came out of the background the backgrounds Mercurio it's it's it's fluid and and and depending on the atmosphere it's a tough background you got to learn how to deal with that and block that out and read that ball off the bat and I read it off the bat and I made the best line I could make and you know look honestly ninety five percent of the way their eyes and we're into but you can't you know like three four strides in and laid out and you know everybody says if you don't catch it it goes to the wall where you there's a lot of things that can happen between catch and going to the wall I could and knocked it down as possible it hits me in the web about two inches before it finds grass thank you lord Jesus Ellison's runs full boat is the gas the book is here's the catch a memoir of the miracle Mets and more and you joke about the somebody has to this question how long are you going to keep living off this one catch and your answer is very funny how how long have I got well I said to somebody a lot of guys had a career I had a cat you know it you know there was a slow you you being humble those want a home run to me it's a big big hit by with the game winning RBI in in the game when you beat the Baltimore to see being humble well I think that says more about Gil Hodges who in my humble opinion is is is is should be in the hall of biggest omission no biggest omission society grows about it makes you question the process but he's got another year and and I I and that's just has to happen but Hodges Hodges would go with hot you know in in this age of analytics where they can measure everything and they know exactly who should be here and who should be here hot skews the percentages in a positive direction and you got to pay attention to it and that's skews percentages up and down if your call then you make a move when I was hot in that game and he let me hit off that side arm right hander and I'd love to have one down the left field line that don Buford doesn't catch just like I missed his ball to start the work right there is because I just misplaced it but we yeah but with the go ahead run and and you know I'm standing at second base they can holy crap this is the first time it's in our hands it is in there it's ours to lose right and you had it hotel Bernie nine the listeners about that year the jets they won the Superbowl that year the knickerbockers when the NBA championship yeah man walks on the moon we've got all the drunken hi kids up at Woodstock Yellin and Screamin you guys won the World Series tell us what it was like to be in New York in nineteen sixty nine well yeah and you mentioned all those things the identity politics the riots at the stone wall in gay awareness only was it yeah I have some friends there look on the wrong side I I understand no longer friends I understand but they they had a point to make and I made it and and and you have all of that there was money in the system it but it was a very fractious time between the Vietnam War in any war back then it seemed like it was a time when any everything and anything could happen and the least predictable would have been us one in sixty nine and we were tuned and all that stuff but you live in kind of a bubble as a baseball player they're they're driving it to the ball park into the airport and back home and stuff but we were when when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon we're in Montreal and we

"The fall classic. He's written about that. And his amazing baseball life that began as a twenty year old for Casey Stengel in the aptly titled, here's the catch a memoir of the miracle Mets and more from Saint Martin's press, and the analyst for the triple a New Orleans baby cakes were so happy to welcome back to the show runs for a happy, Father's Day. Yes. Thank you just talking to my youngest son who lives just over the border in Pennsylvania, just outside of Maryland where I grew up, and you grew up in Maryland. And in the midst came running after you who else was interested in, in signing you, this, of course before the draft began in sixty five the same thing as when we manage to sell this manuscript, for the memoir I got one offer, and I took it. But ironically is Maryland, kid, you had played at memorial stadium as an even more the Orioles uniform. Yes, they were my team. And you know they had a young guy that was really intriguing. I think to give fans of that team back then named Brooks Robinson plan third base who captured your imagination. He was interesting. And different his his moves on the field, his hands at third base. You, you know, he got your, I your number fourteen went from you to Kenny Boyer to Gil Hodges and is enshrined. Yes. And, and, you know, when it went, I was fourteen my rookie year, and they picked up in nineteen sixty six Kenny Boyer, who has pretty good third baseman with the cardinals for a lot of years. And the way they put it to me was whatever the number would you make? Nips when you know it wasn't. It wasn't Kenny Boyer. Bargaining with me. Okay. It was it was dictated. That was fine. You know, good gravy of blade all those years, I ended up number four. And then, you know, for your leaves and the number goes to another guy who you know is hall of fame character Gil Hodges and it now stands on a dish of behind the left field stands out at out at at at city field. It talk about your reputation in the field of because fielder. Yeah, that's the Beker that's the backdrop of the bad word for a long time. They had brought in, in the in the sixties year you've played with dick, Stuart at first base. They call strange blend other and other things that called them, they call them clank a, a middle glove. Talk yet, we aren't doing. We weren't doing all state insurance commercials. You know, and here's what happened. I and I even you know, I, I explain this a little bit in the book because I think people forget, this Shays stadium was very difficult place to learn how to play the outfit if you came from somewhere else, 'cause Shays, stood three tiers high. And, and we had a lot of a, so the fans were always up there in the stands moving around during a game. And depending on the atmosphere, it's a pretty material kind of background that, you know pretty fluid and and, and to read a ball off of that background. If you're not used to it if you haven't worked with it is difficult. You know, one of the games when we beat the cubs in a crucial series in the middle of nineteen sixty nine. Don Young center fielder for them messed up a couple of balls. And, and he had to try to read it read that ball off the bat and, and pick it out against that really difficult background any failed a couple of times too bad routes didn't get there on time, very easy when you first get there. So I made made all the hilarious mistakes you could make. And then I. And that's my next point. And we welcome you calls for runs for boat in your memories of nineteen sixty-nine in my God, that catch which I saw a live. And I'm sure so many of you listening this morning. Did we welcome your phone calls for run on the toll free to talk a bit to talk about? It's talk about that. You and Eddie, oast formed a bond together to improve your defense. Well, Eddie, Eddie work me on the end of his son go bat about one hundred and fifty feet away. And he just hit me line drives ground balls left, right over my head in front of me. And, and I worked on my foot work and my hands. But what you really were working on much you were really, I think refining was your ability to read the ball off the bat and, and figure out where the heck is this thing going because I practiced at. That speed. And if the practice required me to die for it, I don't for it, you know, that wouldn't happen today ever. But I practiced at gain speed. And I think I think it helped put more into it, and you didn't, you know, you just did it for dinner, fifteen minutes, you, you know, but it was very intense and very focused, and then you went off and did all the other stuff you need to do to get ready for a game if you were playing, but the team was patient with you, and understood the upside to take that time to try to help you improve. Well that's what you coaching staff is four and, and they saw that, and, you know, and, you know. Something charming about a guy that wants to get better. And, and the other thing was Hodges used to go Hodges used to put in rod Gaspar during nineteen sixty-nine as a defensive replacement rod Gaspar was in right field. When when Jimmy Qualls got the bay set to break up Tom Seaver almost perfect game against the cubs in Shay. I was on the bench because Gaspar was in right field as a defensive replacement with with the Mets ahead in the game. And look, I understood, why did that it made sense Gaspar was a good outfit with more speed than made. But I wanted to convince objects that he didn't have to do that. That was huge to me and. To prove well that was it. And it drove me to try to get better. And I started making some place where Gill felt like he didn't need to make that move anymore. Because if you showed him, you could do it, you're going to get your chance kill played the hot hand kill did the thing that needed to be done. And and, and he did it every time you know, I, I mean even in the World Series game five I get the hit against Eddie watt. A tough right-hander sorta semi sidearm righty against righty. When he had art Shams gay on the bench. You know. He didn't kinship for me. I was hot. I had a couple of hits in the game and Gil goes with it. That's what he would do. That's why I'd say Hodges had one of the most adroit baseball mines I've ever been around. And, you know, I played for gene mock of, you know, Montreal exit Montreal right. Yeah. Who was considered a genius, but I felt like Hodges when he made his moves and some of them are pretty creative like putting in for outfielders against the giants in nineteen sixty nine with, with a game on the line and Willie McCovey up. And he put four outfielders out there and clear on Jones caught a ball up against the left. Centerfield sensiti wouldn't have gotten to without the move in an infielder out there and, and, and cluttering up the outfield. He brought in five infielders at times when he didn't want a ground ball, going through the infield or or e brought me in one time to play. First base with a pitcher that, that he wanted to daring the bump the ball and he had four guys. You know, crowd name at home plate. He was Aaron this guy, you know, inviting him to swing the bat which he couldn't do you know so so when he did things like that they resolved themselves in a clear way. So you, you understood exactly what he was thinking. And what was going on? And that was the difference, and he did it learning needed to do it. And we're about hurting anybody's feelings. You know, a sham and I you know, if you talked our chance to, you know, and, and, you know, he didn't wanna get platoon with me down the stretch in sixty nine but you know what deal had something that was working. We understood it and we went with it. How about the chimps ski hit five thirty eight and everybody nobody ever talks about the s the first one. Oh man. Len candidate platoon. Right. It's five thirty eight against egos seven for thirteen against the Braves and he sits in game one because there you're going to play games. Yup. Well, we, we were strict platoon that way. And let me let me throw another one at you that I have been thinking about in spring training. The Braves returned to trade Joe Torry, right. And they were they were talking hot and heavy with Johnny. Murphy are GM get into arms like wanted Nolan Ryan Nolan Ryan, Gary gentry. You know they've wanted to get in. They wanted to get into those young alarms that, you know, the Mets were projecting you know, flip the Mets were wanting to find out what these guys could do at the big league level. They weren't going to make that deal and let them have those arms for Joe Torre because it would have been more than one of them for darn sure. Wouldn't have been just Nolan Ryan Gary, gentry would have been in there and. And some other guys, you know, would have been a multi-player deal. The Mets say, no dick young great writer for the daily news, rip them and and, and the Braves. Go on and move Joe Torre straight up to the cardinals Orlando. Right. They don't get the pitching. They were looking for. And in the National League playoffs are left handed platoon out hits Rico, you know, a Rico party, our Landau, Cepeda, and Henry 'Iran pretty good lineup. We out hit them. We outscore them in that series are left handed platoon. Think about it there. There's a connection there runs through Bota is with us as we talked about his book just out this past week, we promised we'd have in back on after the publication. It's called. Here's the catch a memoir of the miracle Mets and more from Saint Martin's press. And I'm sure many view out there. Have a memory of the miracle Mets and Ron Swoboda on that magic October day in nineteen sixty nine I wanna ask you about bud. Harrelson. And his incredible range that you, you were not just a rightfielder. They were times which you played left field. And we have. Yeah. So they'd mood, they'd move you around we've seen film of the early years of the Mets. And there's. Eighty miles an hour out to the outfield. He was eight put pressure on you, you know, because look the deal is in the big leagues. You, you. You're an infielder that ball goes up in the air between you and the outfield there as an infield. There you go hard until you hear the outfielder sing out you go until you hear something. And, and if you're announced fielder you don't say anything until you, you have it. And, and if you're going to take it, you've got a sound off, and you got to sound off loudly and, and buddy, buddy would come so hard, he play half a your damn position. And if you were if it was really one of those in-between where you weren't sure, you know, I, I had some trouble I, I wasn't confident. I wasn't sure and I'd get caught up in, in his pursuit, and me waiting. Well, should I caught that college should I not? And I got in-between a bunch of times, buddy didn't wait much, you know, barely one hundred thirty pounds, you know, under forty I you know, in that here comes the, you know, the big box in left field, you know, wanting to run over him and whatnot, and he never he never backed off. But, but I had to learn to get a better read in that in that background in Shea Stadium. And and, and learn to get a little more confidence so that, you know, when, when you saw was yours when you open your mouth, it's yours. You don't yell cake it or anything like that. You can't have a conversation. You, you don't you either say. Got it or you know, or nothing. You know, it's that joke. Remember bunch years back with they had a they had a Venezuelan shortstop. Frank Thomas yolo Tango, Elliott show. Roy mcmillan. Right. She has to be there. She did know English, so they thought, well, let's have December, you'll look Tango, because he was having communication problems would Frank Thomas left.

"Of course, of course, in nineteen Ninety-one gold, Goldberg and Murphy rented, a summer home that you guys I I have a sitcom of some sort in mind. Of. Towel around the shoulders for some reason and flip flops, you know. About smoking here. What's wrong? Yeah. The isis. Mt. Again, certain person isn't refilling after it uses the last one for shower, you know, Murph. Yep. Oh, God who's dragging the sand in here. All right. So that so they rented a summer home. Oh happened to be owned by Joan Bennett. Kennedy. First wife of Ted Kennedy on Hyannis Port squad island, sources, say flaring. Then the speakers stated them home, but paid for the time he spent there. Okay. Goldberg's odyssey on beacon hill began in nineteen ninety when he launched efforts to prevent the state from seizing parking lot business. Okay. Well, that is understandable. Right. He's got a good business going for them right there people indeed park, and then fly and suddenly them creating this new tunnel to to provide another road to get. There is going to ruin everything takes away entire business, and he's left with nothing. So he says where do I go? He hires the best friend of potential up and coming speaker, this guy Murphy. So after he hires Murphy's lobbyist Goldberg struck painter when the House Ways and means committee included a pro Goldberg amendment in a controversial tax hike. Bill now. Wait a minute. I guess I guess that's a good thing. I usually I don't want my my little rider attached to a controversial tax hike Bill. That's not. That's not seeing it as an easy approval. But apparently, this one was the amendment would be a little glaring. Yeah. Right. I mean, it's already people are outrage. Maybe they'll be so outraged about the tax hike that they don't even care about the park and fly. The amendment had the strong backing of some probably powerful wrap a close ally and friend of both Goldberg and flurry. Indeed. Once again, it is important to have friends in high places separation was the actual guy the state lawmaker gold. Oh the amendment in. There had the backing of some powerful people that you know, they had to grab some Trump. Good call. It doesn't say it doesn't say it just had. Yeah. It doesn't say. That's probably why we don't know. Right. They were never heard from again. The amendment was also added from the floor to the Senate version while despite strong opposition, right? No despite strong opposition from top Dukakis administration officials. The Senate sponsor of the amendment said he filed a measure at the request of Sarah and Murphy, by the way, I love that a lobbyist is named like publicly as requesting that an amendment be attached to a Bill and the Senator who attach it has no problem saying this lobbyists want me to do it. No biggie. Like, you would not say that in public nowadays. That's that's not how you wanna be portrayed. But in that apparently at that point in time. No problem. You know, Murph told me home, Murph it told me to put it on there. And I don't care that he's not elected by the people, you know to put it on. He used to be here. He's his time. You know, he's good people told me to put it on and put it on. So then to caucus, of course, sign the. Tax Bill, but vetoed the amendments said Goldberg your park and fly is done for you. See and. At the time to Caucasus transportation secretary courts Dukakis, the one behind making this tunnel and seizing this property. Dukakis's transportation secretary Frank Salvatti who is spearheading the move to take Goldberg's land. We're pushing a fifty eight million bond Bill to pay for reconstruction of the Sumner and Callahan tunnels flare citing strong objections by then oh, he found the inspector general to say something about probably safety concerns or something why they can't take the park and fly there's a load bearing park and fly. Okay. So flirty citing strong objections by then inspector general Joseph breezy had placed a hold on the bond. Bill. I say your bond bills getting through tell you lease up on that park and fly. All right. But what are you probably got? This piece of legislation. Again, you yet, right? Told me to put it in. You know, he's not an elected official. But what do I care? All right. His move raise speculation. Wow. Did it did this blatantly overt moving mountains for like one Rando guy near Logan airport? Did it raise speculation? Let's see at the time that he was trying to pressure Dukakis not to veto the pro Goldberg amendments that wasn't the case at all was not holding on Bill hostage. So that Dukakis in an effort to prevent a caucus from vetoing the the park and fly saving like card just not getting it ham handedly, but I don't understand you this state what Phil land on. Ethical certainly not as we've worked for the tax payer. Yeah. Tool. Right. So Flaherty has in the past trong denied his objections to the bond Bill. No, he he actually encouraged the bond Bill. Until it became potential leverage in the whole park and fly situation. Then anyway, so he he denied all of that. Of course, his attorney course denied it as well. There will never be any evidence that speaker flare received anything of value in connection with his performance or official duties, so there you go. No, no, nice vacation spot for him that prosecutors diary. The diary. We know we know now federal prosecutors, according to sources have been Steininger by the tangled webs of longtime friendships that dominate beacon hill and the secrecy that often covers the legislative process. Well, that's just it. That's why we got Murph putting in a men moments. Even though none of the voters told him to do. So, but one voter did, I guess very. No problem of you. Exactly. Meanwhile, Charles Baker. The attorney for Sarah. Yesterday said his clients been told by the US attorney's office. He is not a target in a federal investigation from Charles it is all right. So the time line is this Goldberg owner the park and fly in east. Boston begins agitating against the taking of his parking lot. This is an eighty eight eighty nine he hires lobbyists in attorneys to work for on beacon hill on Capitol Hill, far understandable, right, of course, by domain. He's got. Yeah. He's got a great moneymaker here. And while they might pay for the stupid land. Clearly, this what he has would pay off for generations, and understandable as you said, then they also as the big becomes boondoggle. You want to be in conversation. All right. So then in may of nineteen ninety Goldberg hires who we really should have hired right from the very beginning, March Jau, Johnny Murphy. Former house majority leader and close friend of flared. He hires him to lobby form on beacon hill that was all the needed to be done, really China. Right. Backslapping? Twenty are in here. Finneran and Florida. House Ways and means committee releases one point two billion tax-raising Bill that includes a writer forbidding the taking of gold perks. Yeah. Tell me to put it in no problems. The writer was reportedly inserted at the urging of this is the guy, Sarah. So the tax Bill passes the house the next day. Wow. That's crazy. How that works. Fist put it in. And then the next day much, pomp and circumstance it just passes. Oh my God. Frederick berry inserts a similar rider. You do you remember Frederick, Barry? He's he's no longer there. But he was I believe handicapped and passed away recently and. Became the majority leader for a little while. But it is interesting to see somehow that he was picked because he's been Peabody it doesn't make all that much. No. But anyway, they got into birth. I don't know if Murph has some sort of powerful magic. But anyway, whatever whatever Latian ship was there. At the time. Senator Barry inserted a similar rider into the Senate tax Bill Berry later said he was encouraged to file the amendment by Murphy. Oh and former Senate president Kevin Harrington another lobbyist. So basically, you've got for obviously, this is what all oftentimes former Senate presidents in speakers did even former mine majority leader's, right? They would leave leave office. And then they would go make a huge amount of money as a lobbyist because they got relationships with these guys. But of course, the problem is they're actually still writing legislation. I nobody, you know, in in adding things on without, you know, anybody's actual elected official being apart. Think legislators would be yes, you would hope and see how see how not though I mean everything's being run by this old mechanics. It's just all people who who already know somebody. That's all you need. In all you, Murph. Just you write it up in. We'll throw it in the right? No problem. If somebody asks you to write them reference, I'm not gonna write it. You just write what you want and I'll sign yes. Exactly exactly just say it in your words, Marfa fin. To it. Conflict of interest that we've been on the beach drinking here for a week. Now. So what are the guy? I don't wanna hear what the Goldberg berry got from Peabody. I do and I don't really know yet. It does say this is the deal feds say that this lot owner you're going to be surprised they say he bride legislators. No. Yeah. Yeah. Events them. Yeah. I know so east Boston businessman. Richard Goldberg was indicted by a federal jury yesterday charges. Bribing state legislators with the use of his Cape Cod. Mention the recipients who sources said included house speaker Charles Flaherty were not named which is pretty insane. Right. How do you? Go ahead. And so they indict Richard Goldberg, but they refused to say the people that he bribed that seems outrageous to me. Count indictment says that Goldberg rented the chew at home for eleven thousand dollars in August nineteen ninety as part of a political and lobbying campaign to spare his east Boston parking lot from being absorbed in the big dick, or at least a drive up the price. Paid by the state the indictment specifically states that Goldberg and his lobbyist. Murph gave us access to the Cape Cod home during the rental period to one or more Massachusetts state reps four and because of official positions and actions. Goldberg's attorney who's not Murph Morris scoldings said his client is innocent. He said flare visits to the waterfront estate where social in nature not related to end me legislative Acura. Listen to this. Awesome. Quote, anything any quote that starts like this fabulous. Any student of history. Must recognize that the framers of the constitution. The sentence like that, you know, it's going to be good. All right. Any student of history must recognize that the framers of the constitution hord, the criminalizing of social contacts among friends who among us hasn't shared a beer with another friend. Is not be. Join in the framers of the concepts you getting involved Jesus. This is exactly why we broke off from England. Weren't gonna let us have peers with friends all about to any student of history. Sorry. What a terrible quote charges against Goldberg will were levelled after Goldens the lawyer and his client refused to join in an agreement to extend the five year statute of limitations on the rental, which is about to expire, wait a minute. That's interesting. So the charges against Goldberg were leveled. After. He refused to join in an agreement to extend the five year statute of limitations on the rental, which is about to expire. I don't quite understand that. But maybe I will let her on flair. Woo. So the charges against Goldberg. The guy who rented the place were brought right after after he refused to join in an agreement to extend the five year statute of limitations on the catoon at rental. So might. My sense is this I guess the feds went to them and said, you know, this five such limitations for you being a jerk is about to expire right for these charges..

"Where his big brother and mentor was Martin Luther King junior. And Clendenin the year before of course, when Martin Luther King was assassinated in Memphis, the pirates had more players of of color than any other team. And Clendenin was obviously this was a terrible personal loss for him apart from you know, what it meant to the civil rights movement and the whole country, and he and the pirates were the leaders in getting baseball baseball was about what's going. Gonna start the season the day of Martin Luther King's funeral and and the pirates basically where the the prime movers who just said, you cannot do this. This is Justice is just wrong on every level. And they ended up delaying the start of the season. But when Clendenin cane, he just he changed everything he he was he was a big presence and a and a very effusive presence and in the locker room and a slugger in the middle of the lineup. And he was it was just the Mets had been looking for a slugger all year. In fact, they talked for most of the spring training, the GM, Johnny Murphy. Was trying to get Joe Torry from the Braves, but the Braves wanted you know, they they wanted they wanted Cushman wanted Nolan Ryan they wanted Amos Otis. They were you know, they they wanted to fleece the match that they were gonna give him Joe Torry from Brooklyn, and Tori would have been a perfect fit. But the Mets didn't want to mortgage their whole future. Just by getting sure so they held off and they ended up getting their slugger in a trade for a couple of minor leaguers from from the Expos, and Clendenin, certainly what an acquisition because he was everything you would want with the slugging. And with the hitting once they got him in the middle of that sixty nine season. But again, we we mentioned what the tug McGraw the Cevers and the kouzmines how about with Jim Mcgann, drew. Did he help out at all way? Oh my gosh. In in in in August with the Mets Mets pitching. And the Mets pitching this year. This is a little how different baseball was then Steve fifty one complete games as a staff, and and and the games also took two hours. It's I actually clocked. I was telling someone last night. I when I was watching the replays of of the postseason games. I had a I had a stop watch on Cushman who pitched who took ten seconds between pitches. No one stepped out of the box. He he got the ball back from grody stepped on the mound. And when I asked him why he said I could never figure nothing to do between pitches. I just get on the mound and throw, but they but McAndrew was pitched the best baseball of his career. He's sort of a forgotten hero in a sense. But when the Mets were were rallying, and it was really right right around the time of Woodstock the Mets looked like they were they were they were gone and McAndrew pitched the best baseball of his of his life. And so did Don Cardwell down the stretch thirty three years of age that year. That's right. And it so they got and then they had a tremendous bullpen with with McGraw. And and and Ron Taylor, sir. The great Ron Taylor. Who was you know, maybe maybe was the smartest man in baseball. He added electric electrical engineering degree, and then when after the Mets won in sixty nine he went on a tour to Vietnam. And he was he was so. Really? I mean emotionally overpowered by the devastation that he saw the pain of seeing the injured soldiers and bodies. All over the place and just he he basically at that moment committed himself to being a medical doctor. And he when he went to medical school. At the started medical school at thirty four. And then became of course, the the Blue Jays team physician. Well, let me just say this. I think over the course of the last forty forty five minutes or so obviously your research has paid off. We know the book is doing very well. We're more than happy. I can't say enough that you gave us a good forty forty five minutes here. I it really is a must read and your work. What do you have uncovered in that book, even for a a metropolitan fan who was alive and old enough to know what was happening with the sixty nine minutes. We'll learn some new nuggets and insight and some of these even though is we were talking earlier about how the Mets got Sieber and Kouzmin. I mean, just amazing stuff and amazing was the key to this team with the miracle. Mets. Was the biggest upset and certainly for anyone who was around. And you mentioned this earlier about what kind of decade, it was with the assassinations the war in Vietnam. There was so much the chaos that the nineteen sixties were all about the New York Metropolitans were feel good story for the rest of the country. Take my word on that. Now, they they absolutely were Stephen I'll tell you one one other little nugget that Kouzmin told me it was just he's warming up in the bullpen before game. Five and Pearl Bailey. The legendary Pearl Bailey is out there. She was a huge met fan and cousins. You know, he was really hyped up. He was stress is the biggest game of his life, and and Pearl. Bailey says don't you worry about it in cruise you got this? And she said I see the number eight. I see the number eight. And he said, okay Pearl. Thanks for the the Mets won that game. Five to three. So no, no. Of course, grow Bailey knew what she was talking about. Here's another thing. Flushing queens as you point out in your book, flushing queens at the forty first latitude. Longitude? I mean, I'm just saying what's in a number Wayne. I can't thank you enough. The name of the book. Of course. Oh, you want to mention what the publishing is that something that you want to get out. I love my publisher, my editor Kevin down into the publisher is is crown books the same publisher who did Michelle Obama's buck. And if I could ever catch up to Michelle Obama, it'd be happy author. I got a little bit of a ways to go. But now the crown has been great. And it was it was really it was almost like reliving reliving childhood and at a magical time. And so it was it it really it transported transported me back to to being fifteen years old. And and just full of absolute wonder of what these these these guys who couldn't win somehow one. It's a great book and the name of it. They said it couldn't be done the author Wayne coffee. The audio version of the book done by Gary Cohn. Wayne, good luck with the book. Thanks so much for your time. Thanks for having me on stage as a pleasure. Our pleasure for sure. And thanks to Wayne coffee. All right. One eight seven seven three three seven six six six, and I thank all those people still waiting online. We'll get to you. Thank you very much for your patience will get to the calls. The rest of the program before Sal licata at ten on your. However, you go for energy on the go. It's got to be five hour energy it works fast. It works long. It tastes good.

"But then you say, well, there's been people Levy writing books about in nineteen sixties go back further and further. It's just like it almost always just shows a general lack of perspective on the history. And a lot of the books. You mentioned I mean having gone through the the same t- program. Certainly, I think it's it's it extremely useful exercise to at least, even if you even if you don't end up using it to to understand perspective in the history because there's been a lot of work done over a century ago on a lot of these ideas that people are think they're. Venting today with with different phrases. So as we what he thinks that have been the biggest changes for you in. How you think about TA over the years? Is there anything that looking back on a Ralph ten twenty thirty years ago, we say, you know, my my processes changed quite a bit. Or I believe something today that I don't believe back then or vice versa. Anything come to mind. I don't know. I'm usually as that question is anything really different today. The second goal analysis changed as I say, no. Because basically, what are you looking at buyers and sellers have I I should change. The question around has had have buyers, and Chelsea sellers changed. No, they still emotional beings. One thing that is different the ETF. I mean where you just bundle things up. I own a bunch of them when I was talking before talking about ET X L E G and things like that. That's a good news bad news that this little bit that you know, we lump all this stuff together. I go to bed at night worrying that maybe we've ever had a real real down draft with a lot of these combined holdings affect the market negatively. I'm I'm a little concerned about that. Interesting. I certainly think that there's areas where liquid vehicle may not be a good match with certain illiquid holdings. And then the first thing that come to mind courses corporate certain corporate bonds and bonds that on average don't trade that much. But at least you have the benefit of the authorize participants out there that can kind of arbit- away and usually arbitrage works over over long periods. But for for some of those illiquid markets, I agree. I I almost wish that there were certain categories that the SEC as they're waiting through the new ETF rule that's been proposed be inching see kind of what they come out with on the other end. I'm I'm optimistic on some of their some of their ideas. But as with the regulators, they usually get right, but it, but it takes awhile Rava as you look back as you're thinking about resources, you mentioned, obviously the MTA in the same team program Edwards McGee, what are some other resources that you think are particularly useful? Oh, so this could be you know, anything that use on daily basis. It could be software. It could be books that have been particular instrumental that others may not have heard of that you think would be certainly worth adding to your quiver. Well, there are a lot of very nice books being have been written to Patrick and dahlquist. That's a real fine. A updated periodically. Excellent. Excellent read for technical analysis. And again, you have Johnny Murphy. Jon Murphy, former student of mine, by the way, very proud of John. He's three work and he's involved with a company called stock charts that service, I I'm actually wrong guy to ask that question because I still driving old car, and I still do it the old fashioned way. And in fact, I'll tell you something I do and I'll share with everybody. This was given to me many many many years ago, and they still do it. You know, everybody laughs at the Dow Jones industrial average. Well, that's that's a crummy average because it's price. It's it's our medic average. It's the only price sensitive, and it's not as sophisticated as the S P five hundred which is capitalization weighted. I could argue about that average for a long long time against this. But. When the old timers gave me said to me title. Don't fight don't ever fight puppet. And we always used the Dow Jones industrial average first of all if you ask anyone down the street and had the market close today about ninety percent of its, gee, I think that that was somewhere somewhere. Yeah. Everybody's always looking at the Dow so whether you like it or not it's the most popular average, and for that reason long..

"And that's the drawback. I think in this negative woods. We're not allowing if you serif combining trainers. I know I think strictly the reason why the HR be to be his shade don't allow it is the question of liability becomes an issue. If a horse test positive if something happens if something goes wrong, who's actually responsible. There's John Oxford Patrick Prendergast just use the example in both. It's tricky. Doc. I can't see any reason why it wouldn't be insurmountable. But that's the reason they give I think they're going to have to twist about because this too much William Mullins, and Gordon Elliot's are not people you can envisage being in this situation. But there are plenty of younger smaller trainers around each with them that maybe the way who are going to have no choice, but to do this. Yeah. It's inevitable. It's going to be in the UK, by the way, look at the amount of trainers who set up subtle at yards or moved full-time to France. Well, one thing I would say that. If you ask someone the HR be about this down the pole off the record. They would say that. When I look this are thing goes on is going on active the time, you have operations where it might be someone's name to license what the assistant is really doing the training. Situation. I could I'm not going to name them. Obviously, there's plenty of plenty of situations. I could name that are the same better that fit that Bill in Ireland. There was a very high profile situation fifteen years ago, and if you want to go and dig it up you can but I'm not going to say who it was put a female trainer had a horse running on a bumper. Just before the off it emerged. Oh, her stable is very close to another stable, and it was not stable that we're training. The a massive gamble was on. It's not uncommon. I'm not saying satisfactory Bush. It does go on on. I suppose the argument Dan is for for transparency. Maybe we should have such situations down on paper fish. But again, there's arguments either way I don't think it straightforward. My God instinct would be to be in favor of us because I think amalgamating resources and staff and horses. No one and everything else will will give more trainers the chance to compete in. An arena that is increase increasingly polarized. I think we're very much into era of the super trainer now. And it's going to be very difficult for any young guy to start or young Lady Sarah from scratch and compete. So something like this maybe needs to be embraced, maybe. But I know I can see both sides of this. It's not straightforward. I think it needs to be embraced the only downside to all of this that I see is hypothetical situation. Johnny murphy. Decides to move sources to Sarah Murphy, and there are no relation and she's got a much bigger stable than him. But her profile has dropped. And he's got exciting your horses coming through and they've got two years of success, and it's all stare as recognition, and he starts to have a bit of a open the attitude about this. And there's a massive falling house. Well, that's wreck. It all comes down to a recognition. I think that's what it's all really these situations around growing, but the people that are kind of behind the scenes aren't getting recognized. And I suppose it just gets to the point of rice. Do we need to wreck? Do we need these people to be recognized that what should happen in becomes Missy because the Sarah ring all the owners and go well, listen since you've come to my yard look at the success. You've had. Oh, yeah. But we only got there because of him. I don't mind it's not straightforward. I it's an interesting one. And look, I think I speak for us old and probably the vast majority of finding listeners and wishing Patrick and John the best on percent delighted for John and I'm delighted for Patrick and anybody who bigger gentlemen, you'd struggled to me. So I think certainly beat the most one of the serve knee one of if not the most popular combinations on the Irish straightening see going forward.
