The manager of a semi-pro baseball team was so beset with health and injury problem, he sent his shortstop into left field to play a game. In seven innings, the converted outfielder dropped three easy flies, committed four throwing errors and let a grounder get through him. Furious, the manager took over left field in the eighth inning. He did a worse job than the shortstop and even got hit on the head by a fly ball. The manager committed six errors and when the dreadful inning was over, he charged the players’ bench, threw down his glove at the shortstop’s feet and snarled:
