Basic male themes and male fights that broke out are revealed in this chapter. Physical challenge and response, redemption of the male ego, attempts to intimidate to provoke a failure of manhood are also told. This was all part of a self-fulfilling tableau played out very close to the surface in New York in the decade after World War II. It is also described how all baseball teams failed.
