Baseball purist

Salinger became a recluse after he wrote Catcher In The Rye, but this didn’t stop people from seeking him out.
Salinger would tell them to go away, and he’d hole up in his house for days.
After Salinger died, the executor of his estate went into Salinger’s office, opened the safe, and discovered a treasure-trove of literature:
Pitcher In The Rye!
First Baseman In The Rye!
Right Outfielder In The Rye!
But when they read the title Designated Hitter In The Rye, they tossed it all in the fireplace and burned it.
Never designate a baseball purist as your executor.
