Tenting with Toots

Author:

The day before the first Series game in Yankee Stadium last week, the sporting world's raucous and temporarily unemployed saloonkeeper, Toots Shor, set up a tent on the site of his proposed new restaurant and invited some friends in to break the ground. Among the buddies who showed up were U.S. Chief Justice Earl Warren and some very busy ballplayers named Mantle, Berra and Ford. For Toots, who hopes to have his new place open by the spring, it was "a real happy" homecoming. "Everybody have a booze," he cried, and—naturally—the drinks were on the house.
