Story Pitch

I recently read a 1927 Grantland Rice article in an anthology of great sportswriting (The Great American Sports Page, John Schulian, ed.). In his article, about the deciding game of the 1924 World Series, he referred to a Washington Senators pitcher, Warren Harvey Ogden, as “The Sheik of Swarthmore.” It piqued my curiosity, so I googled him and found a bio on, the site of the Society of American Baseball Research. ... I miss the stories from Swarthmore history that were a regular feature of the Bulletin. Even if this suggestion doesn’t make the cut, I would like to see more such stories.
