"The President of the National League knew about us and had taken steps and was saying to individual ballplayers. If you do this you will be. You will be suspended. Half the League may strike. I don't care if the League strikes the United States of America and one person has as much right to make a living playing baseball as anybody else is stories been denied the night but it is really so and somebody who down in La Hoya buzzy vase who was a dodger efficient at the time remember the morning when Ford Frick President of the League called in seven cardinals and said and if you strike you're suspended and that ended the strike also the dodgers as a team was a divided house as well on this issue weren't they they were indeed yes Because as soon as the possibility Robinson coming up became clear at the dodgers. Were on a spring training tour through the Canal Zone. Some of the dodgers led by Dixie Walker Starting to petition which more or less bring up Robinson and And we we quit trade us Finest moment and the up and down exciting adventurous mixed life of Leo Durocher came when he heard about the petition. He looked players up in the canal L. Zone at about three in the morning and he said I'll tell you some fellows. Here's what you can do with your petition. We can't say exactly what he said. This fellow is only the first and they're coming coming and they're kicking and they're scratching their diving and you better be ready and you can take your position and forget your petition. The meeting over go to bid Petition stopped right. There and also stopped when pee wee reese. The dodger captain who was from Kentucky Hall of Fame shortstop himself wouldn't sign it but Leo Durocher later suspended for loose living and sending the Catholic Church in which he had been raised. had I had good moments in bed moments horrible moments but the moment when he stopped that position I think was a hall of fame moment in the life of the richer. Tell me why errors lend themselves to baseball and say not football and basketball. We never hear about that in those two sports. That's a good point right. You don't hear about Basketball during the year of college basketball a little bit pro basketball was played in armories and And you go to a pro basketball game and via danced between halves Football at that time pro football what was regarded by many people. Journalism is a game for bald headed. Uh Beer bellies when you take a look at that Era Between Nineteen forty seven and nineteen fifty seven was there a catalyst. was there something that really symbolizes that entire period. I would say it was. The the triumph of New York is is before the word mugging.

"The Howie Carr show if you'd like to join us here. How're president shapes the public character? Oh, gosh. Mitt Romney, the Washington Post. What rod? I hoped his campaign would refrain from name calling and resentment it did not. Mitt Romney reframed refrained from resentment and name calling. He lost. Who was it? Leo Durocher who surged Vince Lombardi one of those guys who won a lot of games said show me a good loser. I'll show you a loser. You know, I understand you learn things from losing. We all lose. I've lost you've lost et cetera et cetera. But you know, when you get right down to it. Would you rather win? Or would you rather lose? I don't care if I learn less from winning. I still wanna win. I'll catch. I'll do my catch up on my on my schoolwork later on on my learning to a great degree presidency shapes the public character of the nation. A president should unite us and inspire us to follow our better angel. He put that in quotation marks our better angels. The world is also watching Trump's words and actions have caused this may around the world in a twenty sixteen. Pew Research Center poll, eighty four percent of people in Germany Britain, France candidate in Sweden believed the United the American president would do the right thing in world affairs one year later the number had fallen to sixteen percent. He's also you know, what he's angry about it. He's angry that Trump said that America has been played for a sucker. Kennedy one dispute that that America has been played for a sucker. But, but that's but you're not supposed to say it. Eight four four five six nine seven eight in Mr. integrity who has a who drives across the country with a dog tied to the roof of his car. You're referring to shame the famous Irish setter who was on the roof of the car from. Belmont Massachusetts, the Detroit when they were visiting his father, George when he was still alive. I'll tell you. I tell you shameless was treated at the end of the trip shameless was very windblown. But he was still breathing. Whereas the dog that Obama ate for breakfast in Asia was not around anymore. I think I think if he gave it the dogs of choice, they'd rather be midst dog than Obama's dog. So here's what Trump tweeted out after the thing came out this morning. Here we go with Mitt Romney. But so fast. Exclamation point. Question will be is he a flake? I hope not would much prefer that mitt focus on border security, and so many other things where he can be helpful. I won big. And he didn't you should be happy for all Republicans be a team Alden caps player and win. And that's all in caps. No. You know? Something has told his sons there's no I in team. But there isn't mitt. Joke the VIP's like that. But I. Could say that about anyone that's got an eye in their name. Bruce, you're next with Howie Carr. Go ahead Bros. The wing doing. It's doing better. I you know, what I even I didn't even bring up the slang. Although I'm going back to the hospital on Friday. They gotta decide whether they want to go back in and pull out some of the floating bone fragments. Before you cut me off you up. They'll listen to the doctors when they tell you what to do. But I I I know you do you listen to people that know their job which was get what the dog on the rules. I'm I'm all done amazing omit with. But anyway. As far as. Cherokee girl, I'm gonna get me a beer. Me she's Harvey graduate. No. That's a good point. You raise Bruce. If you if you really wanted to be a snob about this. You could say this is what you get when you when you bring when you hire somebody from the university of Houston to be the teach at Harvard Law School. She's trying to like put herself. She's like a truck driver from West Virginia. Joining again with that crowd. Right. They're not buying it. No. No way. Listen, I am so disgusted with her her outgoing R condescending, I mean, she's talking like what? A deplorable. I know we'll see. You would think that this woman would learn something I mean, she's in, but she's at a high level and politics she wants to run for president before before that DNA tests. She was one of the front runner. She's not anymore. Wouldn't you wouldn't you just think that you would study the mistakes that other politicians have made especially politicians from her own area her own bailiwick, which is Massachusetts. I mean, John Kerry is still mocked for saying can I get me a hunting license here. And she goes out in does the exact same thing the exact same thing. It's amazing. Thanks for the call. Bruce. Donnie, you're next with Howie Carr. That's you know, that's the thing that keeps saying she's she has this laser like intelligence. I don't see it. I I don't see it at all do you? You remember when she was first running for the Senate? She had to have devolved Patrick again. Like I needed three tries to pass the bar exam. He had to run interference for he had to answer all the questions because she had no idea what she was talking about talked about the west coast of Massachusetts. She she was she got one time. She was in New Hampshire, and she got New Hampshire and Vermont mixed up. Have you set your DVR, by the way for tonight for her big interview with Rachel Maddow? Nine o'clock. Maybe everybody's going to be tuning into that. She has to fly back. So just so that you and I don't have to watch that. That's that's a that's a great job. I think so. Yeah. Gr- that's one of the things. Grace would come in and say, you know, she would just cheer her mouth would all be screwed up and just pain from from watching. But but you realize it makes you dumber. I absolutely I listen to David David Axelrod and John Kerry to a podcast for an hour. Still haven't recovered. That's pretty bad too. That's that's kind of scary though. I won't be watching it. But I'm glad I'm glad Steve you'll be watching it. So that'll be good. Yup. Rachel, maddow. Boy, what a. Donny you're next with Howie Carr. Go ahead. Good evening. How he Donnie, bro? And old orchard beach wanted to get a couple of VIP from old orchard beach. They're waving their wave until you tonight. Yeah. Oh, good. I'm waiting back. Okay. Anyway, the last eight years under Paul LePage page quite prosperous. He had work for food stamps program where yes, we got seventeen thousand people off from food stamps and built up a billion dollar surplus. Right. But that that was the past eight years now, we have governor Janet Mills she's already bright in a couple of Obama coathanger types as you might say, and she's talked about revamping Medicare, and I think that is already spent Medicaid Medicare. Yes, she's gonna she's basically going to blow through that within the first year that already John a couple of weeks ago. And he basically said the same thing that he thinks, you know, you know, all the hard work is probably revamping the economy, and you know, tried to crack down on welfare fraud. It's gotta be it's gotta all the the clock is going to be turned back. It's it's really a shame. I mean, I think one reason they one way they got a lot of people off food stamps is they just they it was the threat even the threat of making people work, right? Steve, isn't that? What it boils down to, you know, just forcing them to do a work search. Yes, what it is or volunteer. I thought I thought the lefties were all about volunteerism. Yeah. Go ahead. A lot of these people's they don't they don't wanna work. Anyway, we'll take the free food if you'll give it to him. Sure. They'll be there for the handouts. But they're not gonna work whether or not they get the free food, and they're gonna find it up the food pantries and other ways and leaching our friend that they're going to get by right, right? No. Yeah. No one's no one's starving. When nobody can. There's no reason why nobody starves the death in the United States. I mean, the the the the left promotes these these narratives that you know, that the prisons are full of people who were arrested with a joint of marijuana. And you know, another one and people are. The eight million children go to bed hungry every night. That's because they wouldn't eat their cabbage. That's why they go to bed hungry. Please. Thanks for the call. Donny, Mike, you're next Mike. You're next with Howie Carr. Go ahead. Mike got someone will make your day. I called the again, a call from the same way average Indian school Manteo.

She goes to Montana. Happy with her one. I don't think she I don't think she has to go as far as Montana before. She gets the first shock. You know? Right. Bighorn battleground? Reservation. Yeah. And I wanna tell you these guys these guys don't pull around don't wanna know pota- RBM anywhere from Canada. Yeah. So she goes out there. Are you going gonna have a job? Trump has the Indians PR. Yes. Was your rally one of those guys one of those guys? So they're all Trump supporter soon. So I tell you. Yeah. They had a there was a case when Obama was president a an illegal alien, but he's one of these guys who'd been leading lead stay in the country. He's he was a he was he a did car breaks burglaries. He had no job or anything like that. So he somehow came across these three crow Indians that lived on the reservation and he killed two of them. And they were gravely wounded the other one and the FBI was sent in to to assist. The sheriff's department investigating the murder of these two white Indians on the reservation. You know, what the what the FBI's job was to tell the sheriff's department. Don't put out any press releases. Don't tell anybody that this guy was an illegal alien. That's what they were. They were sent there for not to do any investigation. But just again to cover it up like like out in California like in Knoxville like in queens. It's it's ridiculous. I mean. If anybody knows anything about illegal immigration. It's indians. Right. I mean they've they've suffered rather grievously from from uncontrolled immigration eight four four or five hundred forty two forty two. I'm.

Woah wonder what the nutritional value is. Sometimes I'll I'll look at it today. Talking to a friend about this. I'm looking at this has absolutely no nutritional value that makes it strangely attractive to me. Just because I'm tired of being nutritious, man. I'm happy and negative Nancy and take your negative. I'm doing the treadmill. I'm doing all that and to trimmed off some pounds and trying to stay smart about it. But I just don't like government.

Now, it may send you I mean, they just food. Komo's I've ever had. I think it says the calorie count and it says, here's where you call the cardiologists. But anyway, so. But that was when I saw that when the calorie count started being posted for everything pushed by Arnold negative. What you're talking about and Arnold still a friend. I just this is one of the things was nuts. I know with best of intentions, but it's on everything. So it's at the blooming onion at outback is two thousand calories. That's it that is that is that's the daily adult requirement. Caloric speaking, sworn it was more than that. I think it's two thousand look it up. All right. Leo durocher. Would you look it up? You can look Durocher. Of course for a time was the manager of the Chicago Cubs and Chicago getting back to the voting thing. Watch this legendary player for the dodgers absolutely was.

Mark you never let a crisis go to waste. That's right. That's right. And CNN is all over this right now that Trump was one of his rallies.

The the caravan what happened in Pittsburgh last weekend. Yeah. It was only last weekend feels like a month ago that these are suggesting so says CNN Trump's suggests that these events were politically inconvenient. So now they're saying look how insensitive that is. Let's just say, that's just honest. Whether you like it or not those events are hurricane sandy superstorm, sandy. Two thousand twelve was also inconvenient as in two thousand eight. It was politically inconvenient to have the financial meltdown was especially politically inconvenient for John McCain who then thought I don't need to campaign for a month. We have a crisis and Barack Obama went out there. Anyway, gone. I I got I'm on your mind for. So. They all do it. But the most honest admission to that was Rahm Emanuel. Now, the mayor over the murder capitals, Chicago. Chicago. Say never let a crisis go to waste.

Oh, this is so much fun. David. Alan grier. Cool kids series premiere tonight on FOX at eight thirty pm eastern time, please come back. And and go blow I would live. Can I say one more thing about Tiger Woods? Sure. I have to tell you. I do not watch golf. I watch. Tiger woods. Okay. I really don't. I mean, if it's not there. I don't ask me why I'm not really into it. You know? And and to watch this thing, I know that it wasn't a major like everybody else. I thought well, maybe this is it. I mean, he's still gonna if you didn't do anything ever. And if you'd lost his week, and he's still going to go down in history as one of the greatest golfers of all time. All right. I don't think this is the end I think he can win another major. I don't know if he's ever going to break Nicholson's record. I just know that I think it was Jack nNcholas deputy said at one time he said, you know, he's Tiger Woods has lost. His I've dealt with his term is is Mojo, you know, is a golfer. When you you're in the zone, you're in the zone. But when you are not in that zone. You are not. And he's we never thought he was going to come back. It's amazing. It really was awesome to see to this weekend. It's unbelievable. So let's have some more. I I agree with you David Alan Grier. And I I noticed a great quote from Jack Nicklaus who I love with the exception. Is he went to allow state? That's the only thing. Well, for you know, what? That's right. How dare you quote him? I'm not even gonna say anything you asked me not to use profanity, and it's very hard at this point. Now at David Alan Grier on Twitter checkout baby hit me up the cool kids on FOX eight.

"Tiger Woods coming up next Mason. Ireland ESPN LA. We mentioned David bodies. Walk off grand slam for the cubs last night against the nationals. Just a couple of facts. Those are always helpful. That was the second walk off grand slam of the year for the cubs. It's also the second walk off pinch, hit grand, slam this season. Daniel Roberson hit one versus Miami on July the twenty second. And but in terms of being scoreless and having it be the first runs of the game that hasn't happened since nineteen sixty eight when Ron did it and Leo Durocher was the manager. Wow. And we actually have the play by play call of the cubs play by play on. This should be good. Go ahead and hit it. There.

"We love your show thank you thanks appreciate the call thank you all right let's go to wreck in mill valley rick you're on kmby six eighty go ahead yeah thanks for you i really appreciate your restore call perspective again i'd like to talk about what might have been in terms of willie's homerun knuckles because he missed the virtually all of the fifty two and fifty three seasons during the korean war and then insurance surely would hit thirty five home runs at least in each of those seasons and then the candlestick i think in nineteen sixty only sixteen balls hit over the left field fence eight of them willies and so it was not accept your friendly home run out for right hander here's i think he could have had a eight hundred home runs it history all the different yeah maybe you know but that's the way it worked they put dimaggio in fenway and put ted williams and yankee stadium who knows what would have happened with those two but willie became a right centerfield hitter because leo durocher in the fifty four season willie was just killing the ball and leo said i'm gonna hit more to right center field then the cut his home runs down but it actually helped him when he got the san francisco because you wanted to hit to right centers to pay to could do it as well but you're right it's one of those things that we love to talk about in baseball and his how many would have had if he played in wrigley field or a place that was more hormone friendly but to end up with six sixty for what he went through and for the years that he played even if he had eight hundred it would make him any bigger in my mind he was the greatest of our era so it's a good it's a good subject it's a good subject to chat about very good thanks rick thank you thanks thanks.

"And i think that the the main thing was that the jackie robinson transcended baseball that is why we have jackie robinson day now it's appropriate for baseball to to celebrate what he did and and the the great player that he was but he also had his an entire ethnic group of people entire race of people on his shoulders tried to do something that seems just absurd now to even think about it because we know how many great african american players that have been in major league baseball but it also arrested on his shoulders he was the only one he was all by himself and and not really wanted by many of his teammates you know then they had teammates that we're trying to organize against him and branch rickey would not hear of it and leo durocher was the manager and he would not hear of it and to their credit they basically said if you don't wanna be here just let us know and we'll show you the door we'll get you out of here as soon as possible so so there were a lot of and even then when they travelled they went into the cities where there is still with jim crow laws and whatnot jackie robinson was in many cities not allowed to stay at the same hotel with the team willie mays went through the same thing if you years later when he came to the giants but and and that was just the way it was and he had to get a taxi and go to different hotel on a different part of town there were restaurants she could not go into the they would be barnstorming from spring training the team on a bus going from one city to the other and they'd stop at a restaurant and he couldn't go into the restaurant and they have to bring food out to him and and so on and so forth so hard to imagine in today's world but that was the world that he came into and and that was what he did he succeeded and he was great he was the rookie of the year and in a couple of years he won the mvp award and he was the heart and soul of those dodger teams he was the engine that made them run that made them good and and jackie robinson that's that's his legacy and.
