the wound and otherwise dressed it.

a straight ball with great force, but
have to slow up In order to develop

"Facing Rusie to a timid man was
like going Into battle must be to an
inexperienced soldier. The distance
was shorter then. Rusie had the
whole box to move around in Instead
of being chained to a slab, and he
simply drove the boll at you with the
force of a cannon. I have stood up
to all the great pitchers of nearly
twenty years, I have seen scores of
them come and go, and none of them
inspired the terror in a batsman's
heart that was put there by the
mighty Rusie. The ball was like a
