Francis poked the bear one too many times in this one. LOL
Not to be too much of a Baseball nerd, but the story involving Pipp & Gehrig has been greatly exaggerated, too. Pipp had been suffering a ton of injuries that season and was really banged up. He didn’t just ask for a random day off. And Gehrig was a big time prospect. One of many kids from the early 20’s who had grown up imitating Babe Ruth’s revolutionary approach to hitting.
