Terminology - Part 2!

A few more terminology items that I have been tracking while looking through old stories:

Cleverest (adv) = best
Cracker jack (adj) = excellent
Garrison finish (n) = coming from behind to win; named after Edward "Snapper" Garrison, a successful jockey of the late 19th Century
"Gave much satisfaction" = did a good job; often used when referring to umpires
Slab (n) = pitcher's mound
"Snowed under" = defeated
Stick work (n) = hitting
