The Sunday Funnies

This month's tale from Kirby Higbe's "The High Hard One," talking about the Dodgers under manager Leo Durocher:

Under Durocher, we could get the signs of all the clubs except the Cardinals and the Boston Braves. The Braves didn't use them. When Casey Stengel, then the manager, wanted to bunt, he would holler, "Bunt." And he would holler for the hit and run and take, too. Leo asked Stengel if he had any signs. "No," Casey said. "If I did, the only players who would get them anyway would be your team."
