Codes Excerpt in the New York Times

For what it’s worth, the Times has also excerpted the beginning of Chapter 7 (Don’t Show Players Up).

It starts with the story about Mickey Mantle unintentionally mocking Willie Mays during the 1961 All-Star Game at Candlestick Park in San Francisco by clapping like a madman after Whitey Ford struck out the Giants slugger on a spitball. (His delight stemmed from the fact that it won the Yankees’ duo a lucrative bet with Giants owner Horace Stoneham).

Happy reading.
