They never heard of Al Smith,
Even Red Grange is beyond their range,
And Dempsey is a myth.

Of someone my own age, or even older!

These systems show Hα in emission due to elevated levels of coronal activity resulting from rapid spin rates typically as a result of tidal synchronization with a companion star (Dempsey et al. 1997 and references therein).
HST/ACS Imaging of Omega Centauri: Optical Counterparts of Chandra X-Ray Sources
It is however characteristic of RS CVn-type binary stars, in which a giant or subgiant star is rotating fast as a result of tidal locking with a binary companion in a few-day orbit (Dempsey et al. 1993).
HST/ACS Imaging of Omega Centauri: Optical Counterparts of Chandra X-Ray Sources
Nevertheless, if ω Cen does harbor as large a population of BY Dra stars as NGC 6397 (per unit mass), it is still surprising to have found so few, considering that Dempsey et al. (1997) find that about 15% of field BY Dra binaries have Lx> 1030 erg s−1 (see their Fig. 4).

The X-ray properties of RS CVns were surveyed by Dempsey et al. (1993b), who found 112 such objects in the ROSAT All-Sky Survey.
Coronal X-Ray Emission from the Stellar Companions to Transiently Accreting Black Holes
Comparison of Lx /Lbol between SXTs and Active Binaries The measured ratios (Lx /Lbol ) are displayed in Figure 1 for the SXTs, as well as the RS CVNs (Dempsey et al. 1993b), as a function of the binary orbital period.
Coronal X-Ray Emission from the Stellar Companions to Transiently Accreting Black Holes
As an example, Dempsey et al. (1996) found Mg I I fluxes about a factor of ten below that of the X-rays from the KI IV companion in the active binary V711 Tauri.
Coronal X-Ray Emission from the Stellar Companions to Transiently Accreting Black Holes
Finally, we note that C IV has been observed in the UV spectra of RS CVn sources, correlated with X-ray emission (Dempsey et al. 1993b).
Coronal X-Ray Emission from the Stellar Companions to Transiently Accreting Black Holes
Additional means of con firming the chromospheric hypothesis is analysis of the Ca I I H&K absorption lines, the “refilling ” of which is correlated with the X-ray chromospheric surface flux (Maggio et al. 1987); or from similar analysis of the Ca I I infra-red triplet, as performed by Dempsey et al. (1993a).
Coronal X-Ray Emission from the Stellar Companions to Transiently Accreting Black Holes

Coronal X-Ray Emission from the Stellar Companions to Transiently Accreting Black Holes
The limit reaches the upper end of the luminosity function of RS CVn stars (Shaw, Caillault, & Schmitt 1996; Dempsey et al. 1993) but does not eliminate active binaries such as BY Dra systems (Dempsey et al. 1997) which have LX ∼1028−30 erg s−1 .
