SCRANTON WANTS TO
The Scranton All Stars would like
to play Honosdale some time during
the Wayne County Celebration. The
Scranton All Stars is considered a
crack team, having lost but one
game out of fifteen played this sea
son, and that was with Forest City.
If Honesdale accepts the S. A. S.,
the manager is requested to corres
pond at once with Edward Gerrity,
care the Scranton Times, to make
arrangements for the game.
Tho following is taken from the
Scranton Times: In a game that was
hotly contested and replete with fast
plays, the Scranton All Stars went
down to defeat yesterday afternoon
before tho strong Forest City team
on the latter's grounds. More than
3,000 people witnessed the contest.
The final score was 10 to 9. It was
not until the last man was out that
the game was decided and so Intense
was the excitement that the fans'
shouts for tho home team could be
heard for blocks.
When tho ninth Inning for Forest
City rolled around they were three
runs behind the visitors, but they
kept up their lively spirit and by two
hits and an error managed to send
four runners over the plate. Dough
erty began for the All-Stars but af
ter the second Inning was forced to
retire on account of a sore arm.
"Shanks" Murtha took his place on
the mound and pitched excellent ball
for the remainder of the game. Mike
Boles' Iron arm caught many of the
Forest City lads when they attempt
ed to pilfer. The Scranton infield
was a stone wall and It was but
once that a ball managed to escape
through it. Miskell pitched a steady
game for Forest City, while his team
mates played ably behind him. A
triple play started by Dougherty of
tho Stars was the real big feature of
Fred Schuerholz, of Honesdale,

leagues, is again a winning pitch
er. Failure to get into condition
was probably tho cause of the big
fellow's failure In tho International,
whero ho pitched good ball for Provi
dence, which club was a loser in
1911. Sherry threatened to quit the
game when Manager Lake offered
him a cut In salary this year and
did not mako tho training trip, re
porting when his terms were met a
few days before the season opened.
He fell down in Allentown and got
a bad start at Youngstown, but he
won his last four games, allowing
less than eight hits In all of them.
