I read with utter disgust your anti-Yankee Series Critique.
An apology from Creamer and Terrell will be in order upon the Series completion.

SAROYAN'S POETIC RAPIER
Each successive issue of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED becomes more and more like a museum piece in its delicacies, its penetration, its selection. Poetic in its quality, Saroynn's baseball ad (SI, Oct. 8) is not only highly sensitive in its appraisal of the game itself, but rapierlike in its exposition of what baseball means to America.

GARAGIOLA AT THE ORGAN
The Great Drama: Last Act was just tremendous. The highlight of the issue to me, though, was the picture of the defeated Milwaukee Braves walking off the field with the stadium organist playing Que Sera, Sera.
The organist is Audrie Garagiola, the wife of the Cardinal broadcaster and former ballplayer, Joe Garagiola, and she is famous to us for her music and humor.
When Wally Moon hit a homer, How High The Moon was the song she played. With the game going into extra innings she played I Could Have Danced All Night. During a big inning it was Runnin' Wild. For Stan (The Man) Musial, she played My Man. If the Cardinals had a bad inning, she would play Say It Isn't So.
