Old Chester, PA: Biographical Sketches
Many thanks to James Edward David Ashby, JEDA_88@hotmail.com, for the following:
I found the below piece to be an interesting insight on a fellow Hook native, Mickey Vernon. It came from the book
Maybe I'll Pitch Forever by LeRoy (Satchel) Paige and David Lipman (1961, P 218):
"What should I throw him?" I asked Ned.
"Maybe you ought to try keeping the ball away from him."
"I did that the last time. It didn't work. You know what, if Washington gets the bases loaded against me and I got a two-run lead, I think I'll just walk that man and save myself a lot of headaches."
