Casey's Pennant
  • The All-Star Game marks the halfway point of the season. It was a good game, followed by a good baseball week—one of heroics, arguments and oddities. Milwaukee opened daylight at the top of the National League standings. Old Mel Parnell earned a $500 raise by pitching a no-hitter, and Robin Roberts shut out the powerful Redlegs in 98 minutes. At Wrigley Field the bean ball made a brazen reappearance. Washington's Connie Grob won a game with one pitch, and in St. Louis there was a long rhubarb when the umpires disagreed. But the biggest news item of the week was unmistakable: the Yankees are in.
