[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
