Long Gandhi FAQ
Where did the name "Long Gandhi" come from?
Well, it initially it was an amalgam of two home run calls - Lon Simmons' "It's long gone!" and David Lloyd's "Gone-dy!". On another level, it refers to the spiritual aspects of the "baseball as life" metaphor, I suppose. It should also be noted that one of the smartest and most insightful men in baseball history, Branch Rickey, was nicknamed "the Mahatma", a reference of considerable honor to the great Gandhi.. I aspire and strive to be so knowledgeable.
Who invented baseball? Trick question: no one did. As Henry Chadwick once noted, "Baseball never had no ' fadder' ; it jest growed." Alexander Cartwright was one of the first to set down rules; Albert Spalding, the sporting goods magnate who officiated the Doubleday myth, was a great promoter of the game; William Hulbert founded the National League in 1876; and Daniel Adams, who was the first to set precise measurements of the playing field and probably the first to establish a team that consistently played with 9 men on the field... all played significant role in the development of the game.
What are the dimensions of the pitching mound and why is it where it is?

The final out and the curse is over. The Boston Red Sox won the World Series, beating the St. Louis Cardinals in four straight games. The final out was a ground ball back to the pitcher, he ran towards first, and then flipped the ball to the first basemen. The umpire gave the universal sign for “out”, and the game was over.
The signs used in baseball are credited to an umpire named Bill Klem. ( ) He started his professional career in 1905. A plaque in National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York credits Mr. Klem with inventing the signs. Many seem to disagree with crediting Mr. Klem.
William Ellsworth “Dummy” Hoy was a tremendous baseball player from the late 1800’s. Many feel he should be in the Hall of Fame. He is still in the top 25 on the all time stolen base list. He led the league in walks and was credited with the first grand slam hit in the majors. He has a long list of outstanding achievements on the ball field. He was also deaf. Researchers have found many references to the signs used in baseball being credited to Hoy. (

He's Making Some Noise
Other difficulties have been far less amusing for the promising Dodger minor leaguer. Soon after signing with the Seattle Mariners in 2000 he was teased and tormented by a teammate to the point that he begged his parents to let him quit and come home.
Timothy and Kim Ketchner nearly gave in. Simply allowing their son to go off to rookie league at 18 and begin the arduous climb through the minors had been a hard decision.

Miller Huggins SS, Hughie Jennings John McGraw LF, Steve Brodie CF, Joe Kelley RF, Willie Keeler SP, Sadie McMahon SP, Pud Galvin SP, Frank Kitson NED HANLON Hanlon was a fine major league outfielder who collected more than 1,300 in his career, but it was as a manager that he made his mark and earned a spot in the Hall of Fame. With Baltimore from 1892 to 1898, he helped fine tune the art of the hit-and-run, double-steal, suicide squueze, swinging bunt and many other innovative plays. His teams were tough and smart and he won three straight National League pennants with the Orioles. Later he managed Brooklyn to two pennants (with many of the same players he'd had in Baltimore), and finished his 20-year managerial career with a .524 winning percentage, despite poor seasons at the end with Cincinnati. Played For Cleveland Blues (1880), Detroit Wolverines (1881-1888), Pittsburgh Alleghenys (1889), Pittsburgh Burghers (1890)

Sports Book Review
by Harvey Frommer
The late Stephen Jay Gould was a popular science essay writer and a paleontologist. He was also a big time baseball fan, an informed and lifelong follower of the New York Yankees. In "Triumph and Tragedy in Mudville" (Norton, $24.95, 342 pages), the winner of the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award, writes insightfully and eloquently about the national pastime.
It was Gould's friend Stephen King who encouraged this very worthy effort. We are fortunate to have it. All kinds of moving, interesting and sometimes arcane subject matter abound. Gould offers up an essay and an argument on deaf outfielder William Ellsworth "Dummy" Hoy (lifetime .288 average)who he believed belongs in the Hall of Fame. There is also a piece on Dusty Rhodes, a utility outfielder par excellence with the old New York Giants fans. He was the hero of the 1954 World Series. "Triumph and Tragedy in Mudville" is a keeper.
"Jack Buck Forever A Winner" (SportspublishingLLC, $24.95, 144 pages), is a loving tribute to the Hall of Fame broadcaster who was on the scene for five decades as the Voice of the St. Louis Cardinals . The book is especially recommended for Redbird fans. It has perceptions and reflections from such as Red Schoendienst, Whitey Herzog, comedian Jonathan Winters and a special intro by cardinal manager Tony LaRussa. It is beautifully produced with color and black and white photos throughout, and over-sized.

Hearing UNC beat Kentucky Bonds a Broken Record
Yesterday it came out that Bonds testified to a grand jury that he used the "clear" and the "cream" but didn't know they were steroids. Today Thomas Boswell, one of my favorite baseball writers, wrote an interesting column that I agree w/ across the board, even if I still regard Bonds as the Player of '90s. Here's an excerpt: "Bonds's reputation has lived by his statistics. Now, let it die by them. Forever. Before Bonds hooked up with his old friend and alleged steroid merchant Greg Anderson in '98, he had one [home run] per 16.1 at-bats. In the past four seasons, from ages 37 to 40, as he has done the deeds and committed the offenses against his sport for which he will always be remembered, Bonds hit one every 7.9 at-bats.

Swinging from the Heels: A Reliquary for All Seasons
by Don Malcolm
There are so many things that one learns at a Shrine of the Eternals Induction Day that it is almost impossible to remember them all, much less recount them. That’s the charm and quiet power of the Baseball Reliquary , that offbeat alternative to the Hall of Fame. Founder and executive director Terry Cannon is one part showman, one part baseball scholar, and one part committed social historian, and the blending of elements that he and his organization achieves is remarkable for its unity-within-diversity. There is so much to learn that it’s hard to know where to begin. The ceremony, which inducted Roberto Clemente , pioneering nineteenth century outfielder William “Dummy” Hoy , and Dick Allen , was filled to the brim with free-floating insights and fascinating facts. Some were prosaic, others sublime, but they were all pieces of the crazy quilt that is baseball at its antinomian best. Here are few of them: -Hoy, the first deaf player in major league history, was so indefatigable in later life that he was still pruning his own trees at the age of 93.

Cooperstown Confidential: July 11, 2003
by Bruce Markusen
Pride In Pinstripes When Pete Gray took the field for the St. Louis Browns during the World War II era, we could see that he had only one arm. When Jim Abbott first took the mound for the California Angels, we could see his disability—that he had only one hand, making the fielding of ground balls and bunts far more than a routine chore. When Curtis Pride has taken the field for the Montreal Expos, Detroit Tigers, Boston Red Sox, Atlanta Braves, and now the New York Yankees at the tender age of 34, we never see the disability. We only know it’s there because we read about it, and we might wonder how difficult it is to overcome. Now, playing the game without most of one’s hearing isn’t nearly the same as playing with only one hand or one arm, but it’s still a considerable challenge. On the bases, Pride can’t rely on verbal messages from his coaches or the crack of a bat in determining how far a ball has been hit; he has to make those decisions based on sight and instinct. In the outfield, Pride can’t hear another outfielder or an infielder calling him off a fly ball; he has to pick up his fellow fielders visually and give ground, or aggressively call for the ball and hope that a collision does not result. And we haven’t even discussed the thoughtless taunting and mocking that Pride has likely had to endure from his earliest days playing the game.
