Wow....I wonder how that went over with Joe? I can only imagine!

It would be a total guess for me...trying to think...someone big who wouldn't get mashed by Joe (Keller?)...a fellow Italian who might get away with it (Rizzuto?)...a pitcher who wanted more runs (Ruffing?) or somewhat of a flake like Snuffy Sternweiss(?)

Yogi was signing autographs for a Richmond Va youngster,a large group was in Wash D.C.to watch the Yanks play the Senators.Berra remarks were on the autograph that he signed and it made the papers Aug 18 1950 A.P.The Yanks lost 2-1.
