Subject: Re: Anty, anty I over?

In the Louisville area in the 1950's (well, perhaps a little earlier), I

remember Annie Annie over (same rules as cited before); definitely not 'Anty.'

A 'pig-tail' in the same area was a position in unofficial softball/baseball

games. A younger (or less-skilled) player was positioned behind the catcher to

retrieve any balls that got past him. He was the 'pig-tail' (though, I blush

to say, in those sexist times it was often she who was the pig-tail).
