    Juje 1, 1968 Pappas looked good

    Like the effort manifested by the Gyro king, although Bill Kelso performed meritoriously in a squeaker

    The Kentucky tobacco farmer, Woodie Fryman got the best of the Reds that day in a titanic struggle at Shibe Park.

    Bob Lee did some "pristine" pitching on that day for the Reds and there was also a noteworthy performance by the incomparable Ted Davidson.

    By then Shibe was Connie Mack Stadium and somewhere Benjamin Shibe shed a tear as the end came near.

    Ted Abernathy pitched the last inning for the Reds.

    Wasn't Abernathy's nickname "the Worm"? I can't find a reference on teh intranets.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Ted's nickname was "Abbie" or so stated in the 1968 TSN Baseball Register.

    Granger could stand sideways on the mound and no one could see him. Minnesota must have had a thing for guys like that and apparently, so did the Reds as they also acquired "The Blade," Tom Hall, from the Twinkies for Granger. It was said that Granger could take a shower in a shotgun barrel.

    Their success was, in part, to the stellar catching and signal calling of Jimmy Coker.
