The Sunday Funnies

The Yankees in the 1930s had a pitcher name Walter Brown, better known as Jumbo -- he was listed at 265 pounds, and regardless of the accuracy of that weight, he was clearly the biggest player in baseball.

Joe Mccarthy was reluctant to use the heavyweight -- except, for some reason, when the Yankees were in Philadelphia.

Asked why he used Brown more freely in Philly, Marse Joe replied: "It's the only way I know to fill Shibe Park."
