Mister Ron's Basement No. 1954

We are reading some more of George Ade’s Turn-of-the-Century ‘Fables in Slang.’

Today we offer a re-reading of a George Ade tale we originally presented about six years ago. From 1899, here is Ade’s classic story - 'The Fable of the Base Ball Man Who Took the Only Known Cure.’

Time: approx four and a half minutes
