June 22, 1934: Paul Dean Strikes Out 10; Collins and Frisch Steal The Show
The picture that accompanies the AP article was done by Art Krenz. It appeared in the Southeast Missourian on June 23, 1934. I thought it was great. However, while Frisch's Cardinals were able to take the National League by storm, Hornsby's Browns stumbled to a sixth place finish. It can be looked at as a testament to a manager is only as good as the players that he is surrounded by. That is said with all due respect to those members of the Browns who represented the City of St. Louis. The way I see it is they may have had a disappointing season, but they were each in the major leagues, and that is something that most can only dream of.
