Neun: I was his spring-training coordinator in the big leagues with the Yankees for the full 12 years he was there.
Cooney: That so? My brother John was a pitcher, you know.
Neun: I knew John real well. We were with the Braves together. Lefthand pitcher.
Cooney: Yeah, John was a real good friend of Casey's.
Neun: Well, he could hit and he could run.
Cooney: John lives in Sarasota, Florida now.
Neun: Oh, does he? I understand he plays a lot of golf, and he's a good one.
Cooney: Yes, he does like golf. He's six years younger than I—about your age.
Neun: Yeah, we were about the same age when we were there. We played for [Bill] McKechnie.
Cooney: I remember McKechnie. He was in the American Association, too. I played for Milwaukee four years, so I remember him out there.
