Connie Mack Newsbeat
Thursday, October 03, 2013
Syndicated article previewing the 1913 World Series by Billy Sunday, in the Pittsburgh Press, October 3, 1913:
John McGraw is baseball dynamite. He is a hot-headed, hard-fisted Irishman, who loves a fight, and the faster the battling the brighter he shines!
Despite his fierce nature, McGraw is cool in action. He thinks with the speed of a machine gun. He sees an opening, grasps it and in an instant has bettered his position…SPEED is his mania. ERRORS mean NOTHING is a man is out there TRYING.
Connie Mack is McGraw’s opposite. Cool, calm, and studious, he betrays no more emotion than a mummy.
Mack is the iceberg of baseball. He is most dangerous when cornered.
Summed up, [the World’s Series is] the iceberg against dynamite, and I favor the explosive.
Wait a minute. Is Billy saying that icebergs are most dangerous when cornered?
