Training Methods and Pat Moran – Strength Magazine – July, 1921

Every springtime the hot-bread and cotton-seed-oil belt from Jacksonville to Pasadena yawns, rolls over and then languidly gets up to watch the training stunts of big-league ball players. In this season of the year hundreds of athletes go seriously to work to bring tl1eir physical organisms to the highest pitch of efficiency. Some need to put on weight-players like Red Causey, of the Phillies, for instance, being rather slight for the six months’ grind-but the majority carry fat to be boiled off. Their muscles must be hardened; their wind improved.
