  • Money, Sport & the Big Show: Ring Lardner's Baseball Stories
    ordinary American pronounced the word fella Over the course of You Know Me Al Lardner s Jack Keefe emerges as a childish naive stingy and semi literate buffoon conceited not half as talented as he believes blind to his own faults and unaware that he s the butt of his teammates jokes But despite all this you can t help rather rooting for Jack Keefe caught up in a world far more sophisticated than he is a world obsessed with winning peopled by players chasing paycheques and women out to take the gullible star of the moment for all he s got It s a world where money corrupts the knowing and the innocent alike Jack Keefe is obsessed with how much he s worth and how much he s paid As he gets embroiled with drinking gambling and girls Keefe goes from resentment over spending fifty cents on a meal to worries about keeping his new wife happy with mohogenny furniture for their flat In nearly every letter he agonizes over his finances begging never to be repaid loans from his friend Al or setting out the costs of his wedding down to the flowers and candy at 50 and 30 cents respectively Ring Lardner s Keefe is as relevant a character now as he ever was substitute football for baseball and Wayne Rooney for Jack Keefe and You Know Me Al is a very modern set of stories Sport has always been populated by men who have the brawn and talent but maybe less of the brains or self awareness who are suddenly exposed to adulation and more money than they ve seen in their lives before and the effects can be devastating 18 year old cricketer Mohammed Amir s glittering career ruined through naivety George Best or Gazza brittle and delicate shadows of themselves in the big show sport raises its champions high and brings them down hard Implicated players Swede Risberg and Buck Weaver during the Black Sox trial Larder was no stranger to the sports scandal As a sports reporter and close associate of the Chicago White Sox baseball team Larder was devastated when it emerged in 1919 that members of the team had taken bribes from gangsters to throw matches and lose the World Series to the Cincinnati Reds in what became known as the Black Sox scandal It shook Lardner s faith in his friends and associates and in sport itself The American judge Earl Warren once said I always turn to the sports pages first which records people s accomplishments The front page has nothing but man s failures Ring Lardner would surely have disagreed his fiction reveals that the sports pages are as full of human failure as any other part of the paper About Emily Cleaver Emily Cleaver is Litro s Online Editor She is passionate about short stories and writes reads and reviews them Her own stories have been published in the London Lies anthology from Arachne Press Paraxis
