Pegs not only carried a big stick to the plate, but he also had plentyspeed, and you feared his big bat that could hit you for the extra bases, and he can also bunt his way on, once pegs was on first hewas a treat to steal any base he wanted, he also processed a cannon for a arm from the outfield.
Papa Smith always carried his big stick to the plate, with hisability to hit of the fences and gap to gap with regularity, youwere happy some of the ball he hit stayed in the park, Papa didn’t process the speed like most, so you were happy when he kept the ball in the park, most of his home runs were no doubters, he also had a good arm from the outfield.
When Dencil came to the plate to hit, you knew he hadone thing on his mind, how far he was going to hit thebaseball, Joe Blacks love his strike, and made the most out out of every at bat.
