2009-10-16 13:00:00NLCS Game Two/ALCS Game OneIn the 30s, some very good Cardinals teams were pressed into going with Pepper Martin, primarily an outfielder, at third base. It was obvious that he wasn't comfortable there and it was natural for teams to want to take advantage of that. However, Martin had a very good way of dealing with that. Prior to a game, he would wander down to the first batter and say, "If you bunt on me, I'm gonna punch you in the nose." And that seemed to work to keep bunts down. (Steven Goldman)
