BY ROSCOE FAWCETT.
Somewhat hampered by wet weather,
rortland's 1917 basebali opening- withal
proved a distinct social, as well as
Approximately 6000 persons braved
the cold and the continual drizzle yes
terday to watch the Portland and San
Francisco Coast clubs battle for 14
inningrs to a. sensational 1-1 tie score.
Umpire Casey called the death grap
ple at the end of the fourteenth be
cause of darkness or perhaps because
of Henry Berry's heart, or something;
on that order or disorder.
From start to finish the game, was
a thriller, scintillating with brilliant
plays and featured throughout by the
excellent boxwork of the two pitch
ers Fincher. for Portland, and South
paw Oldham, for the Seals.
Memphis Product Makes Good.
It was Fincher's debut before the
home crowd and the big fellow sent
West by Fielder Jones, of the St.
Louis Browns, made good with much
to spare. Big Bill, from Memphis, car
ried his club along for the full 14 in
nings, allowed only four scattered hits
and walked only one opposing bats
man throughout the entire marathon
To be sure there were other supple
mentary and incidental features, such
as the rainy weather, the parade. Frank
Hennessy's solo, the Third Oregon band,
a hair-raising catch by Borton, etc
But when all Is said and done, the
painstaking observer is forced to con
clude that the National pastime as con
ducted yesterday at Recreation Park
was largely made up of six feet of ex
patriated Tennessee physique who opens
mail addressed to William Fincher,
ah,. William Fincher, of Memphis.
San Francisco scored its lonesome
tally in the Becond inning. With one
out Jeremiah Downs thumped a two
base hit against the left field fence.
Sandow Koerner, ex-Angel, followed
with a line smash over short that Char
ley Hollocher ticked with his mitt
hand but could not capture. Downs
scored on the drive. After this the
Seals' bats were about as useful as a
cook book would be to a starving hobo.
Meanwhile the Beavers were finding
"Red" Oldham's vivid and masterful
left flipper too much for them. Up to
the seventh inning an infield hit by
Fincher had been the only semblance of
a crack in Oldham's defense.
Kodgera Uses Hndwork.
Starting off the seventh. Captain
Rodgers banged a hard hit grounder
between third and short, and, though
Pick knocked it down, Rodgers reached
first base safely. Denny Wilie sacrl
ficed him to second.
Rodgers thereupon pulled a play that
showed 18-karat brainwork and saved
the Beavers from the humiliation of a
When Farmer's grounder caromed
back off Oldham's leg, or his glove or
something. Catcher Del Baker, of the
Seals left his position momentarily to
retrieve the ball. Rodgers Immediate
lv hoofed it for the home platter.
Baker saw his faux pas instantly, but
the discovery came too late. Rodgers
run amidst an uproar that would have
run, admist an uproar that would have
done credit to a Yale-Harvard football
From the stand it looked as though
Oldham might have thrown Wilie's bunt
to second base in time to nab Rodgers
Possibly Wolverton thought the same
about it and called his pitcher to task
Anyhow, Oldham never recovered his
entire sangfroid after the fateful sev
enth. He slipped and slopped and
staggered along the rest of the route
always in trouble and once or twice
within an ace of defeat.
Beavers Fill Bases.
In the ninth the Beavers clogged the
bases on hits by Hollocher and Wilie
and a deliberate walk to Farmer, but
Shortstop Corhan pulled the game out
of the fire by executing a nifty double
play on Borton's grounder. Borton
met his death by Inches.
Oldham's strategy board ordered an
other walk po&on for the husky
shouldered Farmer in the 11th, once
more filling the bases. Borton again
failed to come across with the hero
stuff. All told, Oldham was nicked for
nine hits by the Beavers.
Fincher bumped Into Del Baker at
the home plate trying to score on
Wilie's single in this inning and nearly
put Baker in the hospital.
Physically, the game was much the
same as most openings in Portland
a little cold, a little rain, a couple of
bands playing popular airs, a snatch of
emotionalism here and there every
thing but baggy-kneed baseball. There
was none of that.
Five Thousand Pay Way.
And, considering the war and the
weather, the opening-day crowd of
exactly B080 paid admissions measured
Tip fully to what might have been ex
pected. Judge McCredle said if the
day had been fair he would have been
able to go down to San Francisco and
laugh at the mint.
Nobody could have marked the cleav
age fissures of the social strata with
trespassing signs yesterday, as Irvin
Cobb would say. The upper crust-was
there mingling with the lower crust.
The players themselves smacked of
pristine newness new caps, new uni
forms, new chews of tobacco, new
hosiery, new baseballs, new bat bags
and new bats. Only the gloves were
old at the start. After an inning or
two, however, the rest of the outfits
lost much of their pulchritude. Denny
Wilie emerged from one slide on his
stomach looking like a bituminous coal
miner. Denny must have put his slid
ing pads on the wrong part of his
Mayor Albee opened the festivities
at 3 o'clock by hurling a baseball to
Fincher In the pitching box. The May
or's control proved excellent.
The new players made a hit with
the fans. Charley Hollocher at short
and Paddy Siglin at third base blazed
like beacons 'along the coast. Holloch
er, too, exuded a couple of lusty pokes.
Bill Rodgers looked good around sec
ond base, drawing two walks and a
hit for his portion offensively, and
virtually Bavins a. defeat by agile
thinkinsr. Wilie and Gus Fisher also
cleared .with one stride what It would
