THE BEST SEASON IN BOSTON'S BASEBALL HISTORY

EDDIE STANKY

BOSTON BRAVES ...
SPAHN & SAIN and PRAY FOR RAIN ...

May 11, 1948 ... About thirty minutes after the gates opened, the game with the Cardinals was postponed.  It had rained most of the night, and was threatening most of the day.  The Braves therefore made early arrangements to catch the train for Chicago.  The club caught a midnight sleeper.

Eddie Stanky flew to Chicago earlier with his wife to visit her father, Milt Stock, one of the Cubs' coaches. Stanky is doing much better and will probably play when the Braves go to Brooklyn.
