"So he had star quality written all over him. And he was a better baseball player. Jackie. Robinson was at that time. Monty was a superstar for the Newark Eagles. Baseball was Jackie's Weakest Sport, which again tells you how talented Jackie Robinson was because he becomes a hall of fame caliber. Baseball player. So there were other guys in the Negro Leagues who a better baseball player. Jackie Robinson. But that that really good may Negro League I didn't get a chance and then there's other superstar guys were too old. You get Saturday when he was reportedly forty two years old. He was likely fifty two at that time because most new will believe is at least ten years older than what he claimed to be and only bill vague would have given. SATCHEL. But some of the other guys from the Negro Leagues. They just didn't get a fair shake. You know a guy like Ray Dandridge who was a tremendous player in the Negro Leagues well when he he gets up to the Minneapolis Millers. And the Minneapolis Millers were the New York giants triple eighteen. Well Dandridge his name MVP of the millers when he was almost thirty eight years old. You know as well as I do they were not going to take a thirty eight year old black man to take a young white kid job it wasn't going to happen out. Okay. How good he was and so yes, he was bitter about it because he would play out playing all these young kids and there was no realistic chance for him to get their. SATCHEL pages may be the single most legendary. Negro Leagues Baseball. Player. One of the most legendary baseball players in any league. and. He's an interesting case to me because. There's besides him. Simply having a record of extraordinary performance particularly when he was younger as a barnstorming player in the Negro. Leagues. There's these two really interesting facets to him as a guy one is he had extraordinary success in the major leagues as a middle aged man. But there's this other thing about him that I think is really interesting which is. As extraordinary as he is player, he's perhaps even more extraordinary as a story like he obviously understood his brand and. He was getting a cut of the game and he knew how to make his his life into a story and was one of the most you know, no pun intended colorful baseball players who who's ever played baby. Right. And that seems to me like it is reflective of a two sided coin, which is on the one hand. There is no doubt that in the Negro Leagues, they were playing a more entertaining form of baseball that was more fun and more exciting, right? On the other hand because. Disaster page. Could strike somebody out with his hat on his foot, throwing it backwards through his legs. Whatever like because these guys could do anything But. Those stories is amazing as they are I think in part became the story of the Negro Leagues and can run the risk of. Diminishing the quality of play in the the extraordinary qualities of the of the business and its significance in American history. And also, in some cases, reinforcing negative stereotypes that white people have propagated about people of Color through American history certainly, you know the like. All smoke no fire, whatever. Voting and so forth, and that's why Jackie had to be the first guy. And again, that doesn't mean that others couldn't have done it. But this was so much more than about baseball ability. And for everything that you just mentioned. Jackie defied the stereotypical depiction of African American athletes..

"Tittle is a majestic stallion justic i. tell you and sometimes I got a little. Do a little digging. Call Fi one one before you dig. Is that the number? I think it is. Digging in the backyard now digging into the record books. Sixty game season. And I think about what has been done. Over the length of sixty games in the history of baseball. And I didn't find these myself, but I did find some articles about. These ricky go yourself man build it from the ground up. But. Look at. Sixty, games, and what people have done. because. Look these aren't going to be major league records. Or are they with an asterix I? I don't know. But the most hits in baseball history over sixty games. Is Eighty one. Nineteen twenty two by Rab, Russell. And I'm telling you right now. You can't have a name like rebe anymore. John Rev running rebels. South GonNa do it again. Ever in the seventies, everybody was always going the south's GonNa. Do it again. They had all this like. You know these southern movies listen. honeysuckle rose urban cowboy. Even though was John, Travolta You had the Dukes of Hazzard. And they always go the south's GonNa. Do it again. What does the South GonNa do start slavery secede from the Union. Make a treaty with England. What are you GonNa? Do again. Anyway Rep Russell. Rob Russell. Was a pitcher for the white SOx as a teenager. But he hurt his arm. And he kept trying to come back kept trying to come back and his arm would hurt and his arm with her. And so sometimes because he was on the roster, they'd put him out in the outfield. Lo and behold. The Guy could rake. They decided. I guess he can't play anymore. So, he went back to Indianapolis. And he started working. As an auto assembler. Nineteen twenty two. What are you working on a model? But the Minneapolis Millers one time. Only had eight guys. And they does anybody know anyone in there like this guy used to play? And, so he played for Minneapolis the rest of the year. And That was nineteen twenty one. And so. By the way the millers. Were a minor league team of the pirates. So Pittsburgh called him up. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty two. and. Thirty three years old. And he played exactly sixty games for them. and. He had eighty one hits. He made the team next year, but got cut hung around in the minors. But probably happy to be on this list. Second on the list sixty eight hits. Jose Reyes in two, thousand, sixteen and Willie mccovey. And Nineteen fifty nine. So. Who Do you think would do with this year? I. Mean obviously you'd say. Jose altuve. Why not. and. The other thing is about Rub Russell in that season. He's not just done with the hits. He had the most triples. He had eight triples and sixty games. Think about this. Just twenty eight players have managed to record more than one triple A. Season Wednesday. They played sixty games or fewer. And that's in sixty games to get one only twenty eight nine. He had A. Different game, but I still think about. All! You have to do with the dead ball and all out, but. I guess that was before World War. One a little more lively. Who would do it now? I don't Know Ozzie Albee's Rbi Sameer Russell seventy-five rubies. and He leads that category by cavernous proportions, because second on the list Kareem Garcia. Two thousand two with fifty two. D member are STD's KENO last year. He's fourth on the list forty-seven Rbi in fifty six games. But you think about a guy who can knock in runs. You think about A. You know cody bellinger type guy. BRYCE HARPER GETS hot. You know. Mike Trout is. More of a get on type of guy, but he cannot people and run scored Rev. Russell got to throw that into. Fifty one. Fifty one. which is. Pretty amazing as well so that's the Russell, but there are some other records to over sixty games. who had the highest batting average? Someone on the as. The Philadelphia is. Earl broker. With, a silent E. On the end of his name it's a rare staff for three seventy, four his nickname. WAS Canyon Pants You can't make this stuff up. Now here about this. The record for home runs over sixty games in the history of baseball is Matt Olsen of the as three years ago. Thing about that hit two fifty nine twenty four home runs thinking about last year he and Chapman each had thirty five home runs, and like ninety one RBI, both exactly the same number. God Dang it Sheffield United scored against the right of play sucks. I'm mad. It's on my phone silently while I'm doing this. Son of a B. Poopie diapers anyway. Matt and a current Star Right now. He's twenty six years old this year. So. I mean he could do it again. Doubles Bubba Trammell Devil Rays Ninety Eight boba shed last year eighteen. In that amount of time.

"Which of course later became the site of city field in Shea Stadium? We'll get to. That is well while this is going on. Well Maui is trying and get a new stadium in New York. The giants were looking to move the pell. The Polo grounds see much. Better days and their own are are stone them or the move the team and basically as I mentioned earlier he had planned to move the team from Harlem to Minneapolis for his team. The Minneapolis Millers Triple A.. Team had a lot of success. Uh so what one of the saddest things for dodger fans is they never able to beat the Yankees in the world series but they finally did in nineteen fifty five and everything was great in Flatbush but again as I mentioned earlier everything looks great but beneath the surface all hell was about to break loose Los Angeles George Barnett was in private. Talks with Molly to move the team there but again he wanted to stay in New York but unhappy with Moses in the frustration about midfield the dodgers would actually play seven Games in Roosevelt field in Jersey City New Jersey and nineteen fifty six and nineteen fifty seven. This this is kind of a warning shot. He he shot over the bow of major league baseball so eventually Malley just got tired of it. decided he couldn't stay in Brooklyn reached out to the New York giants stone them who agreed to go to San Francisco he went to La so both teams announced announced and moved to West Coast to the West Coast for the nineteen fifty eight season so New York goes from having three major league teams the Yankees the dodgers and the giants to only having the Yankees and they were without they. They were really agr- aggravated so here to me. As S. Guy who who is from Philadelphia would think of a typical New York response. New York had a mayor at the time Robert Wagner. He wasn't the the actor who played Alexandra Monday. But this was a guy who was the mayor of New York for quite a few years and he decided to have that rule it's best to do unto others. There's there as they have done unto you. Any in that idea. He formed what was called. The mayor's Baseball Committee and this was in this. There was a politically connected attorney by the name of William Shea who headed the committee and the whole purpose of this committee was to find an existing big league franchise that would abandoned its fans and moved to New York so the initial and we. We've we've nibbled on this on a number of different fronts and we're GONNA get a two maybe the big C in a second right The the the the initial concept was to attract a team to move versus an expansion franchise. Right that's a nice way of putting the initial idea was to steal a team from another city and bring it to New York got so but the but that it was not expansion quote unquote was not even sort of I sort of thought process. No that what. That was not now again that I'd east idea failed. But one of the teams who William Shea. Does that name ring a Bell Shea Shea Stadium. Anyway he was having a discussion with the Pittsburgh pirates where he he became acquainted with branch. Rickey who was an executive with the pirates and what are the great visionaries of the game when they met all of a sudden major league. Baseball expansion was just a few years away because they came up with a fantastic new idea. Called the continentally. Now when you look at any kind of expansion you usually see two teams coming into a league. Regardless of the sport there's an expansion draft and these teams really stink for quite a few years. Rickie always felt that. If you're going to expand you should do it in five or six cities and have all those teams play against each other so that there would be a better brand of play. That's what the National Hockey League when it originally expanded I think in nineteen sixty seven or nineteen sixty eight. You had the six original teams like the Rangers and the Canadians Maple leaves the the Red Wings and whatnot. They added six new teams. Were in what was called the Western division. They they played against each other and then they play in the playoffs against the existing. Sixteen were horrible but they had a great first couple of seasons because was they were playing against teams. Were their equals. That was ricky's idea about baseball. And of course that didn't happen now. Branch Rickey is an interesting guy. He's most famous for what Of course breaking baseball's color barrier by Adding Jackie Robinson to the Brooklyn dodgers. He was also an innovator who helped develop a lot of other ideas like the idea of spring training in Florida. He also has the person who's who began to use of batting adding helmets but hitters and he also invented the whole idea of a farm system for minor league teams feature players were owned by the major league clubs clubs before that Minor League teams were independent and basically made their money through attendance and by selling their players to major league organizations but to me the most important dynamic contribution that ricky made to the game was his involvement with the upstart Continental Continental League which he and say developed. If you're being unsuccessful and stealing another team for New York now basically what happened is he and Shea a formulated the idea of the new league and attracted owners who had something that previous perspective new leagues never had and that was money. There were examples of other other leagues in the history of the game. There was something basic. Hold the ball players league. Then there was the Federal League then there was the Mexican league at all these ideas he has br. We're going to be new Major League Baseball Leagues and the failed because there just was not enough money there to support report them. That was not the case with the Continental League. They had people like Bob Howsom Jack Kente Cook and and people like that who are well known in later years for For owning teams so basically the combination of William Shea andbranch Ricky Ford about an announcement that the Continental League Baseball's Third Major League debut on April Eighteenth nineteen sixty one. The teams in the League would being Houston Dallas Denver. Toronto Miami Minneapolis Saint Paul Buffalo in New York. So New York. It's a team back So this really Caused a huge effect for Major League baseball as I mentioned earlier. Wall other attempts at a third major league failed. This would scared. Mlb to the point where they agreed to expand because it included branch rickey included all these perspective owners who had money to spend so as their way of basically jettison the Continental League Major League Baseball agreed to put two teams in the American League in Nineteen Sixty one and two teams in the National League in Nineteen Sixty two Nineteen sixty one. The Los Angeles angels came into being and instead of getting a new city team they gave Washington. DC and other team which had just is lost team with the Washington senators who moved to Minneapolis become the twins so because of a lot of political upheaval and threats and whatnot instead of giving as I said a new team a news deserving city a team the new Washington centres senators entered the American league in nineteen sixty one and sixty two the.

"Because and that wasn't uncommon. Pretty same thing with Walter O'Malley and, you know, Connie Mack and gotten out of baseball by that time. But we're you had the yeah the revenue stream that you bring up with the giant football giants leaving as well. Going them had a line. He was well, anybody who moves the team is villain. You know, mention the Molly fame in Brooklyn or something like that. But stone them did have a quote in there when he was talking about moving the giants. And somebody said what about the kids and he said, you know, I feel I feel bad. For the kids. But I haven't seen their dads around here too much lately. And I think that was a good good observation or good remark by him because it, it it softened it a little bit people realize. Yeah, you know what? That's, that's really the case. This guy does have to have fans to survive. He cares about the kids, but he say, I don't say their dads here. So it was something that he was going to have to if he didn't get a new stadium. He was more set on moving, I think them, only was, but in, in here in Minnesota were I, I can go through a lot of stuff back at that time, where people were hoping that the giants would move here, and there was a connection because the giants owned the minor league team, the Minneapolis millers the own the, the, the, the millers who were playing the original tenants of metropolitan stadium that stadium was built to lure major league baseball team here. But in the meantime. It was used by the miners, and it's it is likely if he hadn't gone to San Francisco, and he would not even look at San Francisco, if not for Walter O'Malley looking at Los Angeles, and Californian and trying to learn other team out there it's a good posssibility that they would have moved to Minnesota. They would have been out of there one way or the other. Right. Let's get to the very last sort of part of this be remiss in particular, with our friends, Bill rice, and Bob letter where we've had previous conversations the New York titans of the American football league. And then, of course then becoming in nineteen sixty three the New York Jets also like the Mets in anticipation of this new flushing stadium. That was delayed didn't get open until nineteen sixty four but it's, it's just really interesting to me, and I grew up in the New York area. So I have a very vague understanding of this, a certainly still before. My time. But obviously the, the teams you know, in their lasting legacies were very much in my, my understanding in memory. The fact that the polo grounds really was out there kind of just staying languishing without much use for three years, where the Mets and the titans alternately jets to use it almost feels like it was, I dunno luck knowing that the AFL was sort of a be becoming a thing in the continental league. And then obviously the that be netting out into a new expansion baseball franchise. It almost feels like kinda just dumb luck in great fortune that this albeit falling apart stadium and abandoned stadium was still there actually, to house these, these folks until a new stadium was ultimately built, or when the Mets or getting farm, and first of all they needed. It's like this just about to this day where if an area wants to get a team, it's got to be able to stadium and it wasn't all. Was that easy to get the approval through all the places that needed to be approved that was New York state assembly and everything else for Shea Stadium? But when they did it and were the Mets going to play, and the New York Yankees said, there's no way we're letting them into gangqi stadium, and then so that the polo grounds was the only other place, but it was a New York City board of estimate in March of sixty one that decided to demolish the stadium to allow the New York housing authority to erect more of the housing projects there and fighting that off. And one of the things you mentioned the titans coming in the already had a lease to use the polo grounds through the end of nineteen sixty one you talking about luck. You're absolutely right. Because the was in March of sixty one that the New York City board of estimate wanted to demolish it. Well, they couldn't at least through the end of the football season. Because the titans had Elif, and so they, they couldn't proceed until at least nineteen sixty two and then it was understanding the plight of the Mets and needing a temporary home. They delayed the housing project for at least another year. So that, that all does tie together, and the, the degrade history of the titans and, and they did get renamed as the jets in nineteen sixty three the finally or they played on the polo grounds. But when they they made it after the nineteen sixty eight season to the Super Bowl with Joe name that brought back a lot of the history of the American football league, and that team and talking about say, Don or and, and George Sauer who had been titans and they're talking about the bridge back to when the team was the titans and playing in the polo grounds. But that just by itself to formation of the American football league. And then that was. Pretty natural place for the new AFL team to go that it was. That may have helped to extend that for a couple of more years for the Mets to play. They're just it's, it's interesting that it's a new sort of wrinkle on, on the story of those teams as we've investigated them and, and understood them, and we've, we've kinda tackled the continental league. And what that Bhagat with the begat with the Mets, and obviously, the titans becoming the jets of the AFL in general. You're literally and figuratively had two teams it to very major pro sports leagues playing in effectively a stadium, that's been declared. Uninhabitable and and, and his to come down. And not even the right word where they had to put something back into that stadium to be able to get ready for baseball. But the fact that they had to kind of clean it up and do some things just to get the football team in there. So you raise a good point, when you talk about the importance of the significance of the New York titans and the American football league on the impact that, that had that it kept that stadium where the Mets could move into it, because the was the least but because they had already had to do some upgrading for the football team. And there was a lot more work to be done to after five years of no baseball in there to get back to the baseball stadium as well. So to wrap all this up in the book, I've got a lot of different viewpoints, and you've sort of overseen it with your editing and your own contributions in your own story in interest in, in the stadium itself. What are the, you know, maybe looking back through a bit of? A hey Agar fee. Right. 'cause, you know, cl- Lord knows that the stadium was not a quote unquote, gem. It was probably quirky and memorable. Give it that, right? But, you know, I it was not an architectural wonder per se. You know, I think most people, especially in the later years, would would argue it wasn't even that. What, what takeaways, do you sort of get if this story line of thematically some up here? I mean was it just a stadium, just full and, and right for its time? What would you sort of take away from sort of the, the memories in the lasting what makes the polo grounds such a, a memorable structure in people's minds? Well, that might be the thing as he said it wasn't a GM lake. You would think of Ebbets field and wasn't even a stadium of time. But that's what. Gives it its memora- -bility at least certainly for somebody who wasn't going to games there all the time. And carrying if I ended up in a bad spot where I couldn't see the game for for my eyes. It's, it's from a distance of time that I can look back on it film, still generally, and so many other people can too. But, you know, people I think, first of all, people have great memories of where they first started going to be full games. And for I talked to people who grew up in New York, and some of them might have been going to games at all of the stadium's, New York. But if some were attached to the giants, that's where they went and that that's what sticks with them. It's, it's not just that stadium itself. It's where they spent a great part of their time as a youth for me. It would be metropolitan stadium. Not an architectural classic of anything death. Started to hit me about ten years ago. Oh with the Metrodome closing. And the Metrodome was a functional, but unsure Ming place. But as people of little later generation, we I discovered they were just doesn't still about the closing the Metrodome as I was about metropolitan stadium. People might have been about Ebbets field, the polo grounds because that was the tach to their childhood and going to the game. So their parents and their grandparents, and the memories of that, whether it was the great stadium like the polo grounds or Ebbets field or even metropolitan stadium or credit Stadio, like the Metrodome. I think a lot of them still emanates from that we, we see, you know, baseball fan for many of us. We are most still just about the time that we I got introduced to the game, and I started going to the games. So the polo grounds was there for that, but it's, it's still is in an era of the classic ballpark. Mark where every stadium was distinct, the polo grounds still somehow stood out from even any of those moles. All right. Cool stuff as always. This is really cool and interesting stuff and the book is called the polo grounds essays and memories of New York City's historic ballpark is written, of course, by our guests do Thornley. Thank you, Stu. And it is part of a series of from our friends at McFarland and company, the publishers of lots of books that we featured on the show in the in the months passed, and that series it's called McFarland historic ballparks series. There are bunch of out there for feel that Ebbets field, Comiskey park and a few others. And this one of the polo grounds, obviously a very interesting journey into that series..

"You wanna point out a couple of the of the quirks that kind of stand out, we kinda mentioned the left field in the right field being so short. But also as the as the stadium was further being built out in, in the years following there were two decks, right? And some porches that not only was it's short down those left and right hand sides. But left field sides in right field side. You had the porch that actually encroached even further which arguably made it even easier to make a home run. Right. Among eggs, and it wasn't that was on the left field. Five the second deck right on, right? Field was pretty much rush found, but there was an overhang of the twenty one. Twenty one feet. That's an incredible overhang of the second deck in left field. People who are little, little younger, but still old enough to remember tiger stadium from twenty years ago tiger stadium had that in right field with the second deck that overhung I. But it wasn't as dramatic. It wasn't as far out. And I'm not sure if it really if there could have ever been a fly ball of the angle at tiger stadium. Where scrapes the second deck when would otherwise not have gone into the first deck, but that was definitely the case at the polo grounds when at hung out there twenty one feet. And when you take a foul line and put it down there at an angle John pass tears pointed out that the effect of distance of was almost like twenty seven feet. Because with these very short distances down the foul line defenses. Then went out at a one hundred thirty five. Degree angle. It's quite what is it up to says, they'd say look most stadiums. Today, are when I go to target field and the great stadium and watch the twins. Now, you know, the fall lines go out there about three hundred thirty three hundred forty whatever it is. But then the fences are perpendicular to the foul line. They go out of ninety degree angle here. It was going out at one hundred thirty five degree angle, which meant if you pulled that ball, you can get an easy home run. But if you didn't pull it if you pull the piece more to left center, or right center, it probably wasn't going to be going over the fence because those distances from being very short at the follow lines got enormous as the fence went out to the power alleys. It's just it's just amazing. I mean you're talking about left field was to seventy nine ish. And I think right field was to fifty eight ish, and then what did centers four hundred eighty three feet. Right. Which is that little? Knock, and in between that or a besides each side of that is four hundred fifty and it's almost twice as long. Yeah. And you know, this is game one of the nineteen fifty four World Series a pit of is that more than anything on, on how the park could help or hurt because that's the one that Vic works at this permits drive to centerfield Willie Mays made us. Great catch on. And you know, people sometimes say that was four hundred sixty feet. I it's more about four hundred feet, but he was able to have room to catch that ball over his shoulder. Then make a great catch in so that rob Vic word and kept the Indian from taking the lead on the eighth inning. And then later, dusty Rhodes steps up, and he it's a pop two hundred sixty feet. I mean sometime when you go to the ballpark whatever ballpark you're in just kinda looked on the line a little bit. And imagine where two hundred. Sixty feet is, you know you can kind of figure it out. You know that first base is ninety feet down the line. And if it's the right field fence is three hundred thirty feet away and kinda figure in there were two two hundred sixty feet would be, and it'll blow your mind looking at that same. Really, they had offense at close. And that's what dusty Rhodes stood he'd hit the home run to win the game. That was just a pop up that went over that. So that, that shows all the park could could give and take I guess and but the the center field and we're willing needs caught the courts drive. It wasn't where that notch was was going out. He was still a little bit short of the warning track and to his left as he was running out there. That's the notch when there were various distances to the to the fence listed with the when the New York Mets, where they're I think they'll do is listed four seventy five but for most of the forty three you had stairways up to the clubhouse that we're in. Play. You had the Eddie grant monument that was out there that was in play and on balls. Good ball surrounded. But you just figure if a ball ever bounced into that notch. It was probably going to be an inside the park home around, even if even if the center fielder outta go, navigating a monument or a stairway to get to the ball. It's just if a ball got out. I don't know the funny thing really ever shit there on the fly. There were few batters who are able to hit home runs into the bleachers out there. Hank Aaron show, Adcock, Leuke Stor and Lou Brock who should hit him, straight away Senator, the point that they were even able to, to get into the bleachers, but where that notch was why, why was there? I you know, who's to say when they when they remodeled that stadium in nineteen twenty two twenty three and so they put the office building out there. But why why? Did they not just keep that fence just one more quirk that adds to the fascination of the stadium and the my census? The bullpens were also in play in deep left in deep right fields as well. That had to be interesting on a couple of game. Yeah. And of course, we've got to know bullpens as the still aren't some ballparks and that are that are in play, but in fall territory. And with the polo grounds the bullpens were in fair territory. I'm not sure if there's really any other stadium with that was the case. But on the other hand, they were so far out there, probably, you know, you can get into the corner for thirty four hundred forty feet out there, that it didn't really matter. If pitchers warming up if they saw ball coming out their way, I suppose they can just get out of the way. But that, that's the they were in the field of play in fair territory that distance. They might actually be a few more seconds, actually, to get out of the way because it's so deep. Yeah. Yeah. You could see coming. So I got one other quick that, that stands out in my mind. I'm sure there, there are others, especially not having been there or experienced it as this before my time. But I do I have this right that the outfield actually sloped downward from the infield, and that it was hard for people say, the dugouts to, to even see perhaps, some of the more distant fielders as they got sort of closer to the fences. Yeah, I don't know that, that one of a kind of the polo grounds, although it might have been more pronounced and that appear sitting in the dugout and you wouldn't even see the outfielder feet, but a lot of fields were were crowned in a certain way to, to help with drainage, and some of it there, the polo grounds might have been a little more than you would see in most ballpark. So there was some unevenness or crowning to the field, maybe in the center, so that I, I don't know if it really ever affected any outfield. Fielders or anything catching a ball. It was probably more of an issue at Crossley field in Cincinnati where they had that, that incline. And you know, there's some of the old ballparks in fact, Houston with a new ballpark that opened in two thousand one Enron field. Minute maid park. They had that on center-field this to put that in there, where it was sloped up word on, I guess, for safety reasons about two three years ago. They finally eliminated that so that probably some of those things in some of the other ballparks probably affected. The outfield is a little bit more. What were you able to tell from the writings that you corralled in this book in your own sort of investigation, and learnings and passion, shall we say about the fan experience seats sight lines conveniences and, and we can will get into maybe the later years of the stadium which would be add to it's not? Tremendous, you know, environment but, but in its day was this a fan friendly kind of environment slash experience. You know. That's right. Depends on who you talk to. I mean for me it would be if I could if I could go there and see it, I would just be fascinated with. But I you know, in my imagination of going back in time machine, I always imagined myself having a pretty nice seat. Maybe right up during the second behind home plate, something like that. But there probably were a lot of bad seats in there and the shape of that kind of a ballpark to means unless you are sitting right behind home plate. You're gonna have your view of one of the outfield corners cut off. That's and that's not unique to the pullover on a lot of the stadiums like that. If if you get off on the right field side. Now, all of a sudden you can't really see the right field corner are vice versa. So, but the first book I did on the polo grounds. I. I took quotes from two different people on it, who had been there, and we're writers and had different perspectives. Roger Creamer, great biographer, you know, wrote, Babe Ruth biography, and, and he said it was a terrible place to watch a ball game. It was like watching it through a picket fence. And, and then, of course there are post in there. There are we're in a lot of the stadiums and some stadium still art Fenway park Wrigley field. If you're sitting under under the deck or under the roof, you might be behind post Fred Stein wrote a book called under Coogan, bluff, and grew up in New York, and he loved the place and he said it was a great place to watch a ballgame that the so, you know, you guess you talked to people friend of mine here in faint, Paul grew up in New York. Lot of eve at the polo grounds and he liked it. And, you know, I'm not sure. If people even appreciated the history, I or the uniqueness of it at that time we're still GIC now. And, you know, I think for many of us just spoilt wish I could have been there and people at that time, just probably as a place to watch a ballgame and what mattered most to them was what kind of you, they could get how far away they were. They had a post blocking them without necessarily appreciating. How historic it was unique and one of the things this on tala cheese, that I wrote to about two hundred forty players who had played there and I got about seventy responses, which I was I, I was pretty happy to get that many responses, and from the players to and they might have been looking at a little bit different a pitcher gets victimized by short home run. Probably hates the place. But some like L Worthington pitched here with the Minnesota Twins. He pitched for the Minneapolis millers baseball team that played in Nicot park, which was. Nice ballpark before my time he, he's through the final pitch on that. And I've corresponded with him and talk to him. And he had an appreciation for being a nickel park in Minneapolis six-year-old ballpark in his final game..

"Oh, we were talking about these items for auction personal items of Babe Ruth, which is just the whole concept of this is just incredible. And the guy that knows more about sports memorabilia than anybody. I know Dave Monan who does the sports huddle on Sunday mornings. Dave, ben. Been good. I'm saving my money here. I thought I pick up a few. Cheap. All right here are some of the items there's hundreds of items in here are just a few of them Babe Ruth professional cleats. What would they go for pure baseball's Babe Ruth? I'm looking at right now online there looks like your game warn, which makes them worth more. I don't know if there's Lima's the value. I won't be surprised if the also number out there sixty five thousand dollars sixty five. All right. How about the babe? Ruth's sixtieth homerun autographed display piece. Looks like it was probably done in some numbers promotional fees. Okay. And the names of everybody that he hit the home runs off of a date. What makes it cool is it? He's autographs pictures in the middle. He's autographed. It I don't know. This may well be unique to the hobby. I've not seen this before if it's one of what it's gonna go for a whole lot of money. But I I was when we were asking the question why I was asking the question. I was thinking that it was the sixtieth home run baseball that he hit just name your price. How many million? Yeah. Baseball also on a two point seven five million. I don't see that. That's okay. All right. How about the Lou Gehrig signed and inscribed? Photograph to Babe Ruth is really cool. I can't tell if it's a five by seven or eight by it's a picture Lou. And it says the baby was something. Deserve worthy of serving your friendship. Cordially? It's a black and white photo on really nice. Garrick signature, that's. Yeah. Generally paper things are out of the lower end of the spectrum. Baseball really nicely signed Bruce baseball, and there are some of those in the collection one of those. Yeah. Hundred fifty three thousand dollars in two thousand fourteen dollars a lot of route Ruth was up prolific signer, and there's all sorts of condition. All this stuff will be authenticated by the best friendship examiners out there. I bet you that Garrick photo goes for one hundred twenty five thousand is that right? Right now in the collection, babe. Ruth's single signed baseballs and autographed photographs now those signed baseballs. What would these base for actually knows me? So let's go for fifteen to twenty thousand probably condition. We to on a scale of one to ten I'm guessing these may well be pristine what were the what were they signed with a signature faded is. A real major league baseball is a sign of the sweet spot with the clarity of the signature, all of those factors go into the price. But as I said, the most recently documented one of the highest I think once for two hundred fifty three thousand in two thousand fourteen. Five years ago by the time. This auction goes off how much two hundred fifty three thousand three thousand dollars. Ouch. Are you a? Sitting on this stuff. Yeah. Yeah. There's been a collection like this is come on the market in a long long time here, and there a piece in the hunt auction house what they're doing is. They've they've got the word out. They've done a good job there. Also, accepting pieces that they feel like good companion pieces Ruth collector's coming out of the woodwork and are already starting to consign their pieces to go with these pieces is going to be an unbelievable auction. What it takes? I look up the premiums that you, you know, if you if you page one hundred fifty thousand dollars, that's not what you pick. There's a premium of sixteen point six seven. Yeah. Yeah. Thousand that's almost real money. Almost almost are you a fan of the movie the sandlot? Yeah. I love that movie. But when he you know, he's got these is stepdad's Babe Ruth baseball autograph baseball over the fence, and the Hercules the beast SARS dying at an chewing at it, which breaks my heart at the end James Earl Jones who claim to a played with Babe Ruth. He gives them the other signed baseball by murderers row, which would be worth more murderers row or the Babe Ruth murders row Woodward generally that goes against the trend. Single signed baseballs are worth more than team side. Baseball's on the sweet spot are the most valuable, but when you get for instance, this isn't nearly as big, but he Ralph Branca Bobby Thompson signed ball is worth more than the two of them. Separately. Because they're linked. And that's what happened with a twenty-seven Yankees and burgers real. Those guys are linked to time awhile. Gary was a pretty good autograph guy had signed everything anybody ever put autographs out there. There are not that many things I've heard or Israel. Wow. Now, if you've seen the picture, I haven't seen the picture of the Babe Ruth nineteen thirty four tour of Japan champion batsmen presentational trophy is that a bat. I'm trying to see I know. I think there's not a pitcher. Oh, yeah. No. That's looks like a ceramic. Okay. That is that is ceramic. And it looks like it's. Indelicate for your audience. But it looked kind of like a spitoons. That's not too. That's not indelicate for my audience. Maybe. Let's see what else is in there. Oh, the one thousand nine hundred thirty one New York Yankees better year than president players contract at Ruzyne with the Yankees. No, I think this is I'm looking at it. Magnifying glass. It looks like it's the original copies of interest. But this looks like it may well, be the contracts. They don't seem beep signature on is names on. I don't see it. But of course, there again, you got historical significance because everybody knows right? A lot of money was outrageous people that's more than the president. Which is one of the greatest comebacks of all time. It was great. Let's see here. The personal check ledger with related signed documents. So check I don't know what that is sometimes when those coming to the hobby, and they do that fairly regularly that gives you a number of authentic. Especially when they returned cancelled chest. Right. So I need to know more about that. But we worked a lot when. We worked with the FBI because they were looking at forgeries. Get to know them. Well, for them one of the highest degrees a lot. And so on the on the scale of things that are often some of the hardest one supporter are cancelled checks in the hierarchy collectibles. They do very well. They do does it. Does it say anywhere there on the website? How many checks there are no is the website is teaser at this stage. Fifteen. So it's your. They'll be letting out foreign more, but they are gradually putting things out. I see there's three things on here recently appeared that are consigned by others and going to be. Eventually there will be a beautiful catalog on this multi multi gates catalog. Yeah. Attention from around the world because he is one of the iconic people in in in the world history who's autographs or so relentlessly pursued tracks such money in an auction. You just need to bidders who got to have it you get movie stars, and that sort of thing, and and the sky is a limit on what someone says, I gotta have that. Well. Davis is so fascinating. How do you tell who gave him the name the great Bambino any idea? I think it said. I don't know. That works for me. I threw this out. And I don't even know how realistic it is. With the Yankees be interested in buying a whole collection. Having an undisclosed at their facility somewhere. Yeah. There's very helper. Who what time I think owned a little piece of the Yankees. And berry is the world's greatest collector anything Yankee. Yourself has released a market some of his on display, but it would be somebody like that. I actually think that either people affiliated or passable among the more aggressive bidders. Some of these pieces at that's gonna help drive up the prices about the Smithsonian institute, the American history, Tebessa, my knowledge, most of what they have is on loan or give it up for display purposes. Yeah. I don't think. So I don't think they would be aggressive buyers. At least I've not heard of that Babe Ruth is a part of American history. He truly is. And not so far back. I mean, it's not a Lincoln or George Washington today. Your listeners our listeners really rely would be their dad's worthy grandfather. People said, yeah. Barnstorm became, sir. Through here. So. Everybody a dear friend of mine who passed away in the last couple of years Bob, Ryan, he was an anchorman for twenty one years on channel five in the twin cities, remember, yeah. Bob's dad. Rosie played with Babe Ruth. The general manager of the Minneapolis millers. That's exactly how the Minneapolis, but Rosie played with Babe, Ruth and. Bob's memories of all. It was pretty amazing. It really was. It was fun to talk with great stories. Bobby? Rosie upgrade stories the Taliban. Unbelievable. I'm trying to see if there's anything at all. There was. Single signed baseballs and autographs photographs. Again, you're probably going to say, well, it condition is everything on that. Yeah. It is. And you know, this is going to bring a premium because the city is so from the grandchildren. You know, there are so many false autographs. They've got what are called signatures the clubhouse, boys? And they're all boys at the time. What got to be really good at signing autographs or some of the stocks. A ball signed by the twenty-seven Yankees. And as many as a dozen signatures might have been signed by the same clubhouse, boy all looking different. But for instance, document examiners have been able to tell the difference. I would imagine everything in this collection got phenomenal authenticity because we'll have the providence all the way back through the grandchildren and a family man, probably, you know, letters accompanying this. I think this this'll bring the premium over what's out there before just because the chances of this week authentic are.

These are big big numbers. If your listeners haven't had it looked at it. And they're intrigued by what we're talking about. You can just Google hunt auctions H U N T, and you can see what everything does up so far and a little information about the. Are you gonna go? No. The two million. I drop out on a lot. I thought you'd say twelve million or fifteen million. If I go for sixty nine drop out at fifteen I wouldn't want to be the last bidder after. There you go. Dave. Thank you. It's been so long since we've talked. I I appreciate this known as we were talking about this. And you know, the guy to talk to you on this is Dave Mona. So I. The website has been here once before but that there's more. When I got the next month that'd be more yet. I I do think they're trying to run up the attention on this as I probably would if I were to draw maximum bidding by June next June fifteen this is going to be a big story. Absolutely. Dave.

You just need to bidders who got to have it you get movie stars. And that sort of thing in the sky is limit on what someone says, I gotta have that. Well. Well. Davis is so fascinating. How do you county who gave him the name the great Bambino? Any idea? I don't know. That works for me. I threw this out. And and I don't even know how realistic it is. With the Yankees be interested in buying the whole collection and having an undisclosed at their facility somewhere. Yeah. Very helper. Who what time I think a little piece of the Yankees. And berry is the world's greatest collector anything Yankee. This is released a market some of his on display somebody like that. I actually think that either people currently affiliated or past. The more aggressive bidders. Some of these pieces that's gonna help drive up the prices about the Smithsonian institute the American history. Tebessa my knowledge. Most of what they have is on loan or give it up for display purposes. Yeah. I don't think. So I don't think they would be aggressive buyers. Least I've not heard of that Babe Ruth is a part of American history. He truly is. No question. Not so far back. I mean, it's not eight Lincoln or George Washington today while your listeners our listeners really rely would be ruthless their their dad's grandfather. People said, yeah, they saw Pai Brown barnstorm became through. Came through here. So I. Everybody a dear friend of mine who passed away in the last couple of years Bob, Ryan, he was an anchorman for twenty one years on channel five in the twin cities, remember, yeah. Yeah. Bob's dad. Rosie played with Babe Ruth. General manager the Minneapolis millers. That's exactly how the Minneapolis. Rosie played with Dave Ruth. And and. Bob memories of all that. It was pretty amazing. It really was. It was fun to talk with great stories. Rosie upgrade stories to tell about him. Unbelievable. I'm trying to see if there's anything at all of the. There was a single signed baseballs and autograph KOTA graphs. Again, you're probably going to say, well, it condition is everything on that. Yeah. It is. This is going to bring a premium because the city is so high. From the grandchildren. You know? There are so many false autographs. Got what it called courthouse signatures, the clubhouse boys all boys at the time. What got to be really good at signing autographs or some of the stocks. All of the twenty-seven Yankees. And as many as a dozen signatures might have been signed by the same clubhouse, boy all looking different. But for instance, document examiners have been able to tell the difference. I would imagine everything in this collection. It's got phenomenal authenticity because we'll have the problem with all the way back through the the grandchildren and a family, and probably, you know, letters accompanying this I think this will bring the premium over what's out there before just because chances of this week authentic are so high. Yeah. And then there's the Babe Ruth personal photographic albums including autographs. Again, you're buying entire albums. Do the photographs on the website of that? No, they don't. And again, this website is a little more robust than it was what I I looked at it. I think they are gradually letting things out to build interest. Yeah. This is Dave. This is incredible. It truly is it it it. You'd have to have a boatload of money just you attend this. Oh, yeah. This is going to be you know, when the paddles go in the second one up in the air. These are big big numbers. If your listeners haven't had it looked at it. And they're intrigued by what we're talking about. You can just Google hunt auctions H U N T, and you can see what everything does up so far a little information about the pieces and. And baby itself. Go. At the drop out. I thought you'd say twelve million or fifteen million. Go for sixty nine dropout at fifty. And I wouldn't want to be the last bidder after. There you go. Dave. Thank you. It's been so license. We've talked. I I appreciate known as we were talking about this. I'm on the guy to talk to you on. This is Dave Mona. So I. To the website has been here once before but that there's more on the next month. There'll be more yet. I do think they're trying to run up the attention on this as I probably would have to draw maximum bidding by June next June fifteen this is going to be a big story. Absolutely. Dave. Thank you and the short notice again Friday night. I appreciate it. Thank you. I was a pleasure. I'll take. Thank you, take care. Bye. Bye. Bye. Dave, of course,.

I got to spend ninety minutes with in two thousand fourteen Willie Mays greatest player ball time, and I would put Ted Williams with him. And guess what? They both played for the billers, Ted Williams. The greatest hitter that ever lived Willie Mays the greatest player that ever lived and would have been interesting to see how those two personalities fit because Ted Williams had of course, had the huge personality, and I found out from Willie when we went out and got to see him for a story. We were doing on the all star Willie Mays Willie was known for short and abrupt interviews. But when you get really talking about how great Willie was heating got ninety minutes.

"My eleven year old he'll be twelve at the end of October plays traveling baseball for the Minneapolis millers commanders and every year the his team that people play at his level. Go to the kids to play at his level go to a major tournament. And Cooperstown Cooperstown is where the baseball hall of fame is in New York. Yeah. And every if you've got a kid in the traveling baseball system, you probably know about this tournament big deal. So they're going in July. Well, the fundraising in order to get them to go just for the not even for the travel expenses. Not even for the getting the families there where everybody stays just for the boys. Just for the team. It is like around thirty thousand dollars shirt travels cheap. No. But this isn't even for travel. This is literally to register the boys for their room and board for the programming that they will do their for their uniforms. Their we've an up. I mean, there's a lot of stuff thirty thousand dollars above and beyond that we have to pay for a whole lot of other things. By family. So we are trying to raise a lot of money. And I don't know if you know this. I am a mom not a fundraiser. Okay. So you had said what can make it actually makes money? What does what are they selling? Now concerned is not going to raise enough money, or like, give us the reason why because I will tell you what I would like to buy, but I don't know like what actually sells? So we've got a couple of big fundraisers going. I'm we're running the entire fall baseball program. That's making some money we're doing concessions and merchandise etcetera. That's all making money. We're we're happy with that above and beyond that we're going to be we are going to need like fifteen to twenty thousand dollars. Okay, right now. We also have another thing going on where we're selling wreaths and holiday, you know. I know what that is. Right. And we're trying to get in front of dollars. That's what I'm saying. By the way, if you want to buy any hit me up, but I wanna know from you our listeners what kids sell it's actually gonna make money. Good ideas out there. Let's go to Alex Alex is on the line. Hi, alex. Thank you, by the way for calling so early and holding for so long. What can I kid, Sal that's going to actually make us some real green frozen pizzas? Really bad. Wait a minute. This is delightful things. Like, for example, haggis pizza have you or actually honestly I love how you until I discovered lots of Mata, oh, Vermont is the best. And sometimes we can find out to store for like, you know, get one compared the price of the Hegi so make at least five six bucks keeper. I was gonna say do you have the experience? Have you done this yourself? No, my coworker. Her daughter did it for like their dance team. And she just said, you know. I don't know how they partnered with peg either. Made of the fundraising. And she sold a ton of people like almost two hundred pizzas. Rosen pizza. Right. Alex. I will say we've actually done that before he bought like six packs of haggis when people are fundraising. Really, I mean, it's pizza. Pizzas in their freezer. They're nice to have on hand. Let's go to Julie. Hi, julie. What can my kids, Sal, the people are going to actually buy it's gonna make some real money? All right. So once a really good one and a lot of people don't do it. Okay. But there's a company Marshall called walnut grove mercantile. I'm already in sounds very homemade fudge, and they sell it for the fundraisers, you can do like founder of one pound and people can choose. And I think they have twelve different flavors something like that. And it is the best budge and there is like five or six dollars for the half pound in like ten or twelve dollars for the full pound. Everybody buys that the whole thing on their website calling for fundraising. Okay, tell you to do is. But not that many people know about it like, it's something different. It's the market is saturated say in the fundraising business. Thank you. Julie brings up a very good point. Which is that you want to sell something that not everybody else is selling like of the things. I would can can they dislike like shovel. My walk this winter. I mean, we'll be doing that as well. We will be putting young Mr. Lindstrom to work shovelling walks. Yeah. But like, I gotta make I gotta make big money. I gotta make fast money. Okay. Not no drugs, please. These are wholesome young men. Let's go to Betsy Betsy is on the line. Hi, betsy. What can my kids, Sal that's gonna make the money? Hi, I had more the thought process that I would much rather get your son, like twenty dollars thirty dollars and know that you're getting that full amount. Buying a twenty dollars thing. The cookie dough. Making like three bucks off of it. That's a good good. Mike this for like nine months Anakin use that and you earn three dollars. But along like what Bradley was saying like golden and provide a service like rake, some leave something that's not costing any money and you're getting the full amount. I having to hand so much money over to the actual fundraising company. Okay. Let's smart. I like that. I like that as well. Betsy. Thank you so much. That is useful information. Then I'm getting a hundred percent that you didn't do this like in the summer because I would have had over there. Weeden my backyard. You could do this to know. I'm good. I got my own backyard. I'm trust me. Whatever is being sold. Everybody else. Also paying for with my child. You know, let's go to Debbie. Hello, Debbie, Debbie. What can I can make kids sell? So we can actually make some actual money for his fundraising. Okay. For hockey players in our community come around and they sell water suffer salt, and you can ask them to bring today. Or however, many bags want, and they'll rain in your house right next to your water softener, and it's awesome. Now, I'm not a hockey mom. I don't know how much profit they me. You know, it's a way to maybe. Baseball players, and you say, okay, thank you so much. That's a great idea. I do have to ask a follow up question to my friends in the room. And this is probably a dumb question. I don't use water softener. Neither do I. I don't know. Burbs. Do right? That's what I was gonna say. So like, these are, you know, all these kids live in Minneapolis city limits. They do not know anybody who lives in the city who has a water off that I again, I like the idea that it's something out of the ordinary like I never heard of water softener, really. Maybe you know, I don't know roof shoveling put up those kids on the roof how about an old fashioned car wash because my car needs to get detailed ASA. Did you say.
