beard of that team, hey 1 ; I started
playing ball with' them, the good old
Hickory Bottoms of Hopedale, Ham-

I bad been pitching hay, playing ball
with some of the farm hands, and we
were having quite a time of It A lit
tle place called New Athens-not the
Athens on up the state, but New Ath
ens had a college and some 600 folks.
They were rather chesty when it came
to playing ball, and when the boys
would drive Into town on a Saturday
afternoon we would, watch the college
boys play balL V
They didn't look much to me, so I
got our farmer boys In 'line, and we
bunted a long time for a name. - Big
Stillwater and Little Stillwater were
two creeks close by, and we thought
we would call ourselves the Stillwa-
ten, but some of the fellows kicked on
that As we lived in a part of the
county called Hickory Bottom and as
our first bats we made ourselves out
of good old hickory trees, we took up
the name of the Hickory Bottom base
ball club, and then we started. Say,
we didn't do a thing to those college
boys! We Just ate 'em alive :
Well, I never will forget the day we
went to Cadiz. I was down to pitcn,
and an I could do was to throw a ball
Uke-welL I could throw 'em some in
those days. ' Did have an outcurve, I
ffuess. but 1 Just counted on speed.
The Cadis team bad been cleaning up
.vervthlne from Wheeling, Steuben-
ville and on down tne nver, ana ro
think the Hickory Bottom team would
lick them! Why. say, it was a Joke to
those fellows. ' ;

The Cadlx team had a fellow they
called Home Run Grimes. He played
shdrtstOD. and his record was a home
run or two every game. Say, 1 fanned
that fellow every time he came to bat,
and we won the game 12 to 1. Funny
how they got that one run! It came
in the second or third inning, I forget
which. But some of. the Cadiz sports
got to betting that I would blow up or
kill our catcher, and that made me hot
again. So I kept firing the balls in
sort of reckless-like, and I hit two fel
lows, and one man got to base on balls.
I hit the next fellow, and that forced
In a run. Then I settled down, and
we won hands down ... - - - -
