The Manager
  • In the dimly lit world of boxing, the classic—and therefore most closely guarded—relationship is that between the manager and fighter. One of the few persons ever permitted to penetrate the protective shadow which conceals their everyday dealings is Robert H. Boyle. On the pages that follow, Boyle recounts his conversations with a manager and a fighter on a day climaxed by a bout. For reasons which are obvious, the names of the principals are withheld. The facts are not.

When rain delayed the start of the July 4 double-header at Crosley Field, the Redlegs headed for their dugout. SPORTS ILLUSTRATED's Hy Peskin, stationed at its third-base end, simply turned the corner and ducked in too, bringing with him several of the 10 cameras he later used for the pictures of Cincinnati fans you saw in SPORTS ILLUSTRATED two weeks ago.

This is an article from the July 30, 1956 issue

The players took over one camera, a Leica with a 300-mm lens. Magnifying objects six times, it helped to pass 45 drizzly minutes as the Redlegs reconnoitered the Cubs in the opposite dugout, examined Crosley Field architecture and practiced girl watching on a comely spectator in right field.

Meanwhile Peskin used another camera to record some of the activities. Manager Tebbetts (above) chose to cast an appraising eye once more on his slugging charges. But Ted Kluszewski (below) enjoyed a new perspective on Shortstop Roy McMillan. The result is a new perspective on Ted's outsize arms.

"It isn't quite fair," Peskin says, "because I made the shot at an angle only three feet away."

Soon afterward the rain stopped, and Kluszewski started on the home run rampage that gave him eight in eight games and the league leadership. Despite Peskin's testimony, National League pitchers, who have probably seen all the Kluszewski biceps they care to, would doubtless contend that the SPORTS ILLUSTRATED camera did not lie.
