tenary. This invasion was not so successful for the Chocs. They lost one game to L. P. I. by the score of 3 to 2, and two games to Centenary by close margins. On their return from Louisiana the Blue and Gold met Mississippi A. and M. and Millsaps on their home field twice each, winning all four games. The next week saw the Choctaws bow to their age- old enemies, the Millsaps Majors for one game and win the second game from them. Our next games were with the A. and M. Bulldogs at Starkville which were both won by the bulldogs- by a very slight margin. Then the boys returned home for a few days’ rest before starting on their last trip. On the second and third of May they met the Spring Hill nine on their home lot. Both of the e games proved too much for the Choctaws. They lost these games by a larger margin than they did any other of the season. On their return home they met the Teachers from S. T. C. in two games. These were easily won and the Choctaws returned home having won two and lost two games on the trip. The last two games, played on the ninth and tenth of May, were split. Louisiana Tech won the first and the Choctaws won the last. Taken all in all, the season was a very successful one. During the season Jimmie Taylor was shifted to catch and Harlan was moved to second base. Other than these two . . - - - 7 . 73 7 MANAGER, 91

9 Cui £? r @ lay home in FIELD The middle of February caught the staff of pitchers and catchers working hard to get into the best of shape for the coming season. Farrell, the veteran catcher, and John All- good, a Sophomore, had their hands full. They had to work McCrorey, a Senior, and Hahn, a Junior, the only two vet- erans in the camp besides two Sophomores, Bigham and Longmire. Gill, the third Sophomore to report for pitching duty, didn’t report until the rest of the squad because he was busy with basketball. March ist found the whole squad limbering up their arms and getting in shape pretty rapidly. Although the team was rather slow at the beginning of the season, it improved as the season progressed and the Choctaws finished the season with a little better than a .500 percentage, winning ten and losing nine games. Two catchers, Furniss and Myers; one pitcher, Branch; five infielders, Luter, Daily, Taylor, Walker, and Claiborne; and five outfielders, Miller, Harlan, Herrmann, Sheppard, and Spencer, rounded out the list of Choctaws aspiring for positions on the baseball team. On March 21st and 22nd the first games of the season were played with S. T. C. These two games were easily won by large scores. Hahn and Gill bore the brunt of these two games. The following week the Choctaws made their invasion into Louisiana, meeting the Louisiana Tech and Cen- 90

shifts the team played the whole season as they started. The bat of our captain, Leland Walker, was the most consistent. Taylor, Luter, Clay- borne, and Sheppard were consistent hitters, with much help coming from Miller and Harlan at times when hits were most needed. The team was above the average as a fielding team, making very few errors during the entire season. The pitching laurels go to Hahn and Gill. They finished the season well up in the list of pitchers. McCrorey, although not showing the form that was expected of him turned in some neat performances. The Choctaws lose through graduation Walker, Herrman, Mc- Crorey, and Farrell. These places are expected to be filled by some very promising material which is coming up from the Freshman Class. With the new material the Choctaws are looking forward to a very successful season in 1931. The season’s results are as follows: S. T. C . . . 6-6-03 ; Choctaws . . . L. P.
