w mvmki • " - I ' liiitf ' ■ Leon " Two-Gun " Price " C " Pitcher ' Luke " Valentine Pitcher Richard " Pee-Wee " Pyle " C " Pitcher When the Maroon and White diamond athletes reported for initial practice never before probably had prospects for a winning club been so bright. The letter men returning to the Maroon and White fold were: Captain-elect Poole Connell, outfielder; File " Dutch " Binion, catcher; Frank " Papa " Hughes, first baseman; Franklin " Bear " Allday, keystone sacker; Charlie Smith, shortstop; Alfred Lindsay, third baseman; and Leon " Two-Gun " Price, catcher. The team began what they hoped to be a successful season by playing the State Normal nine on March 31. It was a wild and woolly game, errors were more numerous than hits, with the Gents having nine fielding blunders and Normal seven. The game was fairly close until the ninth inning, when Centenary scored three runs on one hit and a flock of Normal errors. The second game on March 31, evened the series with Centenary by defeat. The game was evenly contested and most excitingly played. Winning both games the Centenary Gentlemen made a clean sweep of its two-game series with Louisiana Tech in Ruston on April 11 and 12th. " Bear " Allday ' s bat played an import- ant part in the outcome, the infielder getting a home run, two triples and a double in five trips. He also sparkled in the infield.

Leon Price, who went the route for the Gents was credited with his third victory of the season. A homeerun wallop in the first inning by Lind- say, of the Gents, helped sew things up for the Gents. The Majors showed a lightning defense and cut down several Centenary rallies with four fast double plays. The visitors played a perfect defensive game throughout. Hitting honors for the Gents went to Binion, Connell and Price with two each, while Car- ruth, Crawford and Baxter got two each for the visitors. The second of the two-game series with the Majors was cancelled on account of rain. The Gents defeated the Mississippi College Choctaws of Clinton, Mississippi, on April 27 in the first of a two-game series on the local lot. The score was 6 to 2. Jake Hanna, Gents ' cen- terfielder, was the big noise with the stick, cracking out three hits in five trials. Nice fielding in general was produced by players of both teams. Leon " Two-Gun " Price won his fourth consecutive victory of the season on April 28, when he held the hard-hitting Mississippi College Choctaws of Clinton, Missisippi, to seven widely scattered hits and two runs while his mates were accumulating 14 base knocks and 11 runs. Some nice defensive playing was seen during the course of the game. fu ' mm ' m « ' -• firftf Franklin " Bear " Allday " C " Innfield Jerome " Skinny " Scanlon " C " Innfield Frank " Papa " Hughes " C " Outfield
