        no balls, no change.  Jackie would bunt down the first base line--waiting for the pitcher to field the ball--and there would be a collision.  After the third time, pitchers stopped throwing at his head.  Further, Newk would throw a high hard one, Campy would duck, and the umpire got popped in the head.  Then the umpire called balls and strikes correctly.  Bigots don't stop until they feel pain.  I watched the Dodgers in Ebbets Field--they had color and temper--and success.
