Indexer Notes

End of current storyline. New story to start next Fall.
Max Pine was an alias of Frank Moss, per 2006 interview with Frank Borth: "You can find out in reading your things he also uses the word Max Pine as a substitute for him because he didn't want them to think he was writing everything in the place..." http://cuislandora.wrlc.org/islandora/object/cuislandora%3A40849

Synopsis
During a baseball game between Cleveland and Boston, the ball was hit into the outfield and rolled into an empty tin can. The fielder couldn't get the ball out of the can, so he threw the can and ball still in it to the catcher, who tagged the runner with the can. The umpire ruled the runner safe, because the rules say you have to tag the runner with the ball and not a can.
