A Baseball in Harrisburg dates back
* many years. There are still a num
ber of fans who can tell many in
teresting tales about the early game.
Some have played baseball. One
of these veterans is W. M. Mailey,
"•who is a member of the Harris
burg Light and Power Company
forces. He writes the follow'ng in
teresting story about an old score
book which he has in his possession,
and still doing service:
The Harrisburg Light and Power'
Baseball Club is using a score
book that was in service nearly
forty years ago. The book, all those
years has been in i>oasession of the
club's manager, who in 1882, played
lirst base on the old National team
and in 1884 was manager of the
Clippers. This article will no doubt
be read with a great deal of inter
est by First and Second warders,
since it will bring back in memory
the rivalry that existed between the
old Atlantics and Pacifies, when the
games were played on "Tippett's
Lot" now the site of McCreath
Brothel's coalyard and on the
grounds where the Central Iron &
Steel Company mill now stands.
No Gloves or Masks -
"Tippet's Lot" was the mecca for
baseball players from all over the
clly at that time, and many battles
were fought in big league style.
Masks and gloves were not used
very extensively for these games
and broken fingers resulted; along
with black eyes and bruised cheeks,
relieved with raw beefsteak secured
from Hamcr's and Keel's butcher
Among the names on the old book
are those of many who are still liv
ing, and will recall some of the
t antes in which they played. Among
them arc: Police Sergeant Amos A.
Drnbeiistadt, who was quite a slug
ger In his younger days; Alderman
George A. Hoverter, who could catch
flie3 in center and left, with the
best of them. John A. Snyder,
letter carrier and William Berry, the
former a pitcher and the latter
any old place except pitcher; Jake
Tippott, second base; George Keil,
pitcher; Otto Bowers, catcher;
Willard Elder, shortstop; George
Kennedy, truant officer, second base;
Charles Sourbeer, pitcher; Frank
Keffer, pitcher; Riley Copcland,
first base; William Lehr, pitcher
and one of the first curve line
pitchers; Jacob Whiteman, Penn
sylvania Railroad trainmaster, who
Hummelstown With a Fast
Team Trims Crack York
Athletic Champs
Hummelstown Fire Company de
feated York A. A. at Hummelstown
Saturday, score 8 to 6. The game
was exciting and full of pep from
start to finish. Madden played a
* wonderful game at first, accepting
nineteen chances without an error,
and had two runs and one hit to
his credit. His work was of high
caliber and very sensational.
Keller had a perfect day at sec
ond base and had eight chances
without an error. Stewart was back
in old form and scooped up eight
all around short without mishap.
Weaver had a good day at the bat,
out of three times up he had two
hits and one run. The one hit went
far out in deep left and Weaver
romped the whole way around with
out much speed.
Alcorn in Form
) Alcorn pitched a good game with
the exception of one bad inning,
the fifth, when York scored three
runs on a base on balls coupled with
two hits and two errors by Weaver.
The fire company baseball team
will be back with some real old
sport again for two weeks when they
will have their former twirler,
"Mule" Watson, to help out in the
Parksburg, Kphrata and Columbia
P. R. R. Y. M. C. A. games. Owing
to Hummelstown picnic to-morrow
the game with the Harrisburg
Giants will be played Wednesday

Famous Baseball Stars
Waynesboro, Pa., Aug. 11.—A lo
cal industry, member of the Waynes
boro Industrial League, is negotiat-
ing for the services of Jack Hurley
and Charley Dysert, to play with
their club. Hurley was manager
4 and first baseman for Hagerstown
, *in 1917. Waynesboro is paying well
for the services of its men, over a
hundred a month, in addition to
their pay at the shops. One pitcher,
who was a former Blue Ridger,

Hicks Win Close Game
From Army Reserve Team
In a close contest Saturday the
' Hick-A-Thrifts won over the Army
Reserve Depot team, score 7 to 6.
It was a nip and tuck battle from
start to finish. The Hicks hit the
ball hard in the sixth, and the Army
boys came back strong in the sev
enth and ninth. The score by in

Those Who Hied
Some of those who have since
died are: Dr. John A. Fritchey, who
was quite a pitcher at that time;
Edwin K. Meyers, brother of At
torney William K. Meyers, who kept
amateur baseball going in the city
after the professional game had
taken a decided slump; Fred Erb,
first base; John House, third base;
Charles Dubbs, catcher; Tom Prim
rose, pitcher; W. Tolbert, first base;
William H. McCrone, umpire; Ver
non Minnis, Tommy Reese, pitchers;
"Bcenie" Watkins, catcher; A 1
Hocker, catcher; Albert Hamer,
scorer and "Jake" Drauthy, who af
terward got into faster company, be
! gan with these boys; James Y.
Kirk, catcher. The catcher then
took the pitched ball on the first
bound until a man got on base or
the batter had two strikes. Kirk
was one of the first catchers who |
stood behind the bat during the en
tire game, in a game played at
Seventeenth and Derry streets,
when the Greenawalt Tannery stood
there, the fence of which was the
backstop and which was too close
to allow the ball to bounce.

Another Protest
The announcement by Tris
Speaker, manager of the Cleveland
club, that he would protest the
Yankees' victory at the Polo
Grounds yesterday on the ground
that a field rule had been violated,
provided a new angle to the al
ready bitter controversy. Speaker
holds that the ground rule was vio
lated in the first inning when Pipp
went from first base to third on a
hit to left field, when Grancy, tho
Indian outfielder, threw the ball over
Steve O'Neill's head into tho Yan
kee dugout in an effort to catch
I* rank Baker at the plate. Speaker
contends that as the ball rolled into
the players' bench, Pipp should have
been allowed to go only to second,
and that Baker should have stopped
at third.

Saturday's Scores
Port Royal, 5; Marysville, 4.
Duncannon, 6; Newport, 2.
The Dauphin-Perry League race
was tightened somewhat on Satur
day when the two leaders, Marys
ville and Newport lost to Port Royal
and Duncannon, respectively. Port
Royal was playing in its first game
in the Dauphin-Perry League since
it was awarded the Millersburg
franchise. In both instances, the
losing teams were playing at home.
Port Royal got off to an early
start, scoring two runs in the first
inning and after that was never
headed. Marysville made things
look interesting in the last half,
after two were out, when two runs
were scored on a hit batsman and
two singles. Troutman, hurling for
Port Royal, was equal to the occas
ion, however, and fanned Rutter,
leaving Gerdes stranded on second.
Mover Easy Picking
Endeavoring to hurl his fourth
game of the week, forty-one-year-old
Harry Biever was easy picking for
Port Royal, a total of seven hits
being collected off his delivery in the
live innings in which lie worked.
Not a single hit was made by Port
Royal in the initial frame, when the
two runs were scored, but Biever
was partly responsible. After Frank
house had flied to left, Bailor was
hit and H. Groninger was safe on
Butter's error. Riden fanned by
"Ike" McCord was walked and both
Bailor and H. Groninger scored
when Mutch dropped Hertzler's easy
fly to right.
Mowrer made his initial appear
ance on the mound for Marysville
and hurled a good game after he
replaced Biever in the sixth. Two
runs were scored off him in the
eighth when three hits were made.
Keller Is Star
Keller was behind the bat for
Marysville and caught a good game
in liis initial appearance, although
he showed the lack of experience.
Hippensteel will be back of the bat
in future games and Keller will
likely be used in the outfield.
Homeruns played an important
part in Duncannon's victory over
Newport, two of the five hits of the
steel town lads being circuit drives.
Ford and Dcarolf were the men who
drove the hocsehide over the fence.
Both Strickr and Conners were in
good form, Strieker fanning eleven
and Conners ten. Newport made
bad errors at critical times, while
the Duncannon hits came at oppor
tune moments.
