Honus Wagner

Born on this date Honus Wagner.

Once I said to him, "Honus, I can't seem to get the hang of it. I try hard enough, but it doesn't seem to do any good. What am I doing wrong?"

He said, "Look, the secret is to follow the ball from the time it leaves the pitcher's hand until it gets to the plate."

I liked Honus so I didn't say anything to him, but that didn't sound like much of a secret to me. Heck, I could do that. After all, I was a catcher; that's all I did all day long.
