JTHE lONCOPIN c !ii Frank Boydston, Outfield " C " Frank is playing his third and last season as a regular on the Centenary team. His won- derful throwing arm and his good judgment on fly balls as well as his hard hitting have made him conspicuous in the team ' s play. Frank is serving as co-captain with Glenn Crawford. Glenn Crawford, " C " First Base This year, as in other seasons, " Ham ' s " versatility has been a great aid to the team. How- ever, " Ham " has been allowed to remain in one position much longer than usual, and he has shown up especially well. He is a fast and graceful first-sacker, covering a large territory in a faultless manner. Albert Beam, " C " Outfield This season closes the fourth year of successful baseball playing for " Ab. " Beam cannot be appraised too highly, because he is worthy. He is a heavy, consistent hitter and a versatile fielder. Marshall May, " C " Catcher In aiding " Dutch " with the work behind the bat, " Dummy " has always been ready and eager to do his share toward winning ball games for Centenary and he has contributed some good work toward the cause. Files Binion, " C " Catcher " Dutch ' s " fighting spirit and his good judgment have done wonders in steadying the pitch ing staff and keeping team play at its highest pitch. He knows his pitchers and he works hard to get their best efforts. He never lets down in the fight, but plays hard and encourages his team mates. Mi 179

CENTENARY COLLEGE LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY 2 With " Jigger " Stewart allowing only five scattered hits and the fielders play- ing jam-up ball, the Gentlemen defeated L. S. U. in the first encounter of athletic teams from the two schools in a long period. On the offense, Beam starred with four hits out of five times at bat, and Lindsey poled out a long homer and a dou- ble. Grevenburg, the Tiger ace pitched for the visiting team. CENTENARY COLLEGE 5 LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY 3 it looked as though the University boys were going to win the final game as they were leading the Gents by a three to two margin up to the eighth inning, and Smith was hurling air tight ball. Clanton and Price were sent in as pinch hit- ters in the eighth and each came through with a long three bagger. When the smoke had cleared away the home boys had scored three runs and had cinched the game. It was a thriller from start to finish, featured by fast fielding on both sides. CENTENARY COLLEGE MISSISSIPPI COLLEGE 10 In this game the Gents were at the mercy of the Choctaw ' s pitcher, getting only two hits which came late in the game. Stewart, pitching for Centenary al- lowed ten hits, which netted six earned runs. Long hits for extra bases were partly responsible for the opponent ' s ten scores. Nothing can be said about the team, only it failed to hit and it seemed to be playing in hard luck that day. 178

THE YONCOPIN CENTENARY COLLEGE 5 MISSISSIPPI COLLEGE 2 The previous day ' s luck changed and the second game of the two game series resulted in a victory for the Gentlemen. Davis pitched su- perb ball and his teammates gave him a lead of five runs in the early stage of the game. At no time was he in any great danger, he had good control, struck cut six men, and walked only one. Allday was the hitting star of the game, his triple in the fifth being responsible for four of the runs. CENTENARY COLLEGE 6 . MILLS APS COLLEGE 11 Occasionally a ball team has what they call an " off day, " when they can ' t hit, field or even throw a ball. Such was the case in the first game with Millsaps. The Centenary pitchers (all of them together) gave up fifteen hits, while their teammates were booting and throwing the ball around for a grand total of fourteen errors. But never-the-less, there was one player who could boast of his playing. It was Poole Tinsley " Shorts " Connell, who in the right field had seven put-outs, one assist and no errors. Allday got his usual triple. CENTENARY COLLEGE 16 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 3 The Gents scored almost at will, starting the game by making three tallies. Stewart was in good form and held the visitors to seven scattered hits. Errors by the Majors helped the Centenary team to score in six out of the nine innings. Millsaps used four pitchers but were unable to check the hitters of the opposition. Good base running on the part of the Gentlemen was the sensational feature of the game. 180
