EVEN veterans answered Coach Dieboldts call for spring baseball practice,
ing the nucleus tor the 1928 baseball nlne at tuver raus. 1116 ned and 'v'v'iuu:
diamond stars were handicapped by poor weather throughout the season, and as a
result they were unable to secure the fielding and batting practice needed to put
them in first class condition for the coming year. However, under the able coaching
of Mr. Diebold the home boys were playing high class ball by the time the season
Led by Captain "Winkiett Claflin, the Falls mound staff was of high class
calibre. ttWinkie" was the possessor of a lightning-fast ball and a sharp breaking
curve. "Lefty" Case was the portsider of the squad, who had a world of stuff and
a tantalizing change of pace. The third pitcher on the staff was Clarence Nyht,
a dependable right hander, who worked as a relief pitcher. Behind the bat Norman
Kahl, a high class receiver, completed the Red and White battery.
There were six infielders on the team. mVicn Knerr and Clayton Peterson held
down the initial sack in veteran style. Coach Diebold,s keystone combination was
the class of the infield. Landis at second base and ttBud" Manion at short were
smooth working fielders who were all over the infield, smothering hard hit liners.
John MacDonald played the hot corner in stellar style, his strong whip cutting
off many legitimate base hits. The utility fielder was Schnur who could play any
inheld post, and do a good job of it.
'The hard-hitting Alfonse played right field while Larson, the slugger de luxe
of the team, patrolled the left garden. In center field was the brilliant fielder,
"Bill" Biss, who was all over the field snaring Hys. Mullendore and Paulson were
other outfielders of tried ability.
Although the lack of practice prevented the Falls attack from functioning in
a smooth manner at the start of the season, they showed great promise as the season
advanced. As a leadeoff' hitter "Bud" Manion was sure to get on base. When
runners were parked on the bases, Larson, Alfonse, and Claflin could be relied upon
to furnish the scoring punch.
Games were played with Carleton, St. Olaf, Macalester, St. Johns, and the
Minnesota Prison team. -
