catches in his nine outs.
Biever, Marysville's veteran tosscr,
had a slight edge on Strieker, the
West End star, in the five games.
An equal number of hits was re
corded oft the delivery of each, al
though by reason of difference in
times at bat, Biever had the better
record. In strikeouts, he had the
edge on Strieker, fanning 49 men
as compared to 42 for Strieker.
Again. Biever was steadier through
out the series and walked but a
single batsman, the first man up in
the first inning of the first game.
Strieker issued five passes, all of
them going to "Chick" Butter,
Marysville's third sacker.
In base steealing, Marysville again
had the edge on West End, pilfer
ing nine sacks as compared to eight
stolen by the uptowners. Gerdes ar.d
Moore, of Marysville, lead with three
each. "Bill" Euker, McCord and
"Tim" Euker, of West End, follotv
with two each. Six of the West End
thefts came in the first game, but
after that uptown runners were able
to take few liberties on Hippensteel's
Good Sacrificing
Marysville brought the sacrifice
play into use with greater frequency
than any other team. Six times
the 'cross-river players used this
method of advancing the runner,
Moore laying down bunts three times
while Rutter had one sacrifice hit
and one sacrifice fly.
Every player in the series against
whom a time at bat has been re
corded, with the exception of Gerdes,
has been fanned by the opposing
batsmen. "Bill" Shafer, West End
third sacker. kept his record clear
for the first three games, but whiffed
once each in the fourth and fifth.
"Leger" Stees, of Marysville, lead
in strikeouts, fanning 9 times.
Strieker and Palmer, of West End,
each whiffed seven times.
In numbers of men left on bases,
things were even. Twenty-three
men of each team were loft anchored
by their team-mates. West End had
ten men to die in the first game as
compared to Marysville's three. In
the next two games, things were
even, but in the two final games,
Marysville had more men left on
base. The figures follow:
Thanksgtving Day—the fiftieth anni
versary of their first meeting on
the gridiron, it was announced here

Following the unique match, "Big
Bill" Edwards, chairman of the

minute game, in which no score wilt
