[THE YONCOPIN v v v V E TMA« | C0TENAJJ: un£lAfc-ii» TEMj))? Walter Stewart, " C " " Jigger " is one of the letter men of last year ' s team. Around him Norton has built his pitching staff. He opened the season with a win over Louisiana State University and has chalked up other victories since then. Poole Connell, " C " Outfield Poole has been the hardest hitter on the squad this year as his record of three triples in one game will show. As his hits are also timely he has been responsive for a large percentage of the runs scored. Leon Price, " C " Pitcher " Two-Gun " has served well both as a relief pitcher and in starting games. He has quite a bit ot speed. In baseball as in football his aggressive spirit and determination have bleen a great help to the team. His pitching in the first L. S. LI. game was of a high order. Alfred Lindsey, " C " Third Base Although Lindsey was a newcomer in Centenary baseball, he found a place waiting for him; and he has filled it admirably. He fields well; he hits hard; and he plays a " heads-up " game all the way. " Playmate " is a good find for Centenary. Frank Hughes First Base " Papa ' s " imitations of " Mo ' head " and the train are both well known and in baseball prac- tice he has exhibited the energy of the famous pitcher and the speed of the train. He is known also for his eagerness and willingness to work in any game. 183

—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

THE YONCOPIN CENTENARY COLLEGE 16 LOUISIANA TECH. 3 Davis again scored an easy victory over the Bulldogs. This game was featured hy the all-round playing of each and everyone of the Gentlemen: Allday, Beam, Connell, Binion, and Davis each getting two hits. " Dutch " Binion started the scoring in the fourth inning when he, the first man up, hit a long drive over the center fielder ' s head for four hases. True to form his team-mates kept up the rally and before the inning was over six runners had crossed the home plate. Again, the Tech pitchers were at the mercy of the slugging Gentlemen. In the last three innings seven more tallies were added, while the Bulldogs were held at bay by " Jelly " Davis ' masterful pitching. CENTENARY COLLEGE 1 1 LOUISIANA TECH. 5 The last game of the series siarted out with Tech scoring in the first frame, and again in the third. This lead was rubbed out after the fifth and sixth innings when seven runs were made. Price started the game and was pitching an excellent brand of ball until the sixth when he was injured and had lo be relieved by Stewart, who could not find the plate. After walking lour men Crawford was placed on the mound and " Papa " Hughes was sent to first. During ihc next three innings " Ham " held the visitors scoreless, while his colleagues were making four more runs. The star performances of this game were a homer by Connell with two on and the stealing of home by Lindsey in the ninth inning. Beam also looked like a professional that day, stealing four bases, getting three hits, and snatching four fly balls in the outfield along with one assist. 184
