=THE YONCOPIN — Lloyd Clanton, " C " Outfield This is Lloyd ' s second season to letter in baseball. His fie ' ding is greatly improved, and his hitting has also become better. His pinch hit in the second L. S. U. game came fat the psychological moment and thrilled every Maroon and White rooter. Charlie Smith, " C " Short Stop Charlie has been the fieMing star of the infield. He has started numerous double playis, acted as pivot in others, and ' grabbed ' em " out of the air or out of the dust with equal ease. As in the other major sports, he is a consistent and a brilliant player. Franklin Allday, " C " Second Base Just to prove " He ' s a Bear " at baseball, Allday got nine consecutive hits in ten trips to the plate in the first two games with L. P. I., and made several " seemingly impossible plays in the field " to quote the sport writer of another town. Allday ' s speed has been a great help to the team in base running as well as in fielding. Leon Scales Catcher Leon went out for outfieM last year, but this season he was shifted to the catching staff. Illness has kept him away from practice part of the t ' me, but he has worked hard and faith- fully and will be watched next year as a candidate for baseball honors. Clarence Davis, " C " Pitcher In spite of illness that kept " Jelly " out of spring training, he has begun the season in good form. His win over Mississippi College was especially well pitched. In addition to his ability as a pitcher, he is a hard hitter. ■ ' (. " ) r 1 131

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

—THE YONCOPIN CENTENARY COLLEGE 12 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 6 Centenary made a clean sweep of the series with Millsaps by hitting hard and timely wallops. Clarence " Jelly " Davis pitched for the Gen- tlemen and was touched for hits only in the first, third, and fifth innings. In the seventh inning after two men were out, Binion ' s single broke a deadlock with the Majors and paved the way for a Centenary victory. After that the Majors were easy and a total of twelve runs were made against them. CENTENARY COLLEGE 10 LOUISIANA TECH 4 Featured by Allday ' s hitting, which was five hits out of five times up, and " Two-Gun " Price ' s excellent pitching the Gents won with ease the first of the two games played at Ruston. In the first inning Centenary made three runs and two hits on Tech ' s errors. The former scored in nearly every inning of the contest, and the pitching of Zinn did not baffle the Gents as they gathered together in nine innings fourteen hits. All the members of the Centenary team played like a bunch of veterans, several good catches and plays being made. CENTENARY COLLEGE 16 LOUISIANA TECH 8 It was not until the seventh inning that Centenary awoke and real- ized that they were trailing in an eight to three score. But it was not long before heavy artillery began to change matters. Crawford and Binion beat out bunts and the next dozen or so batters smacked the pellet to all corners of the lot, in fact two of the drives off the bats of Lindsey and Connell went out of the lot, each time there being two runners on the bases. Connell and Allday each got two hits in this inning. A total of seventeen men faced three Tech pit chers during this hectic frame, and at last " Lefty " Boss finally got the boys out, after they had scored thir- teen runs and made ten hits, four of them doubles, two homers, and the rest singles. In this game every man in the line-up got a safe hit. Cen- tenary used two pitchers, Stewart and Davis. rri warn 0 m 182
