SI CROWELL: Morning , Howie.
HOWIE NEWSOME: Morning, Si. - Anything in the papers I ought to know?
SI CROWELL: Nothing much, except we're losing about the best baseball pitcher Grover's Corners ever had.
HOWIE NEWSOME: Reckon he was. He's been standing off the whole of South New Hampshire single-handed, looks like.
SI CROWELL: He could hit and run bases, too.
HOWIE NEWSOME: Yep. Mighty fine ball player....
