HURRAY I WE'RE GLAD OF IT!
I Hsyo you read about this fellow
who has the queer malady known
as Paper b disease, the only effect
of which is to cause him to
shrink? Somebody told us he was
a ball playex. and before we found
"out It wasn't so, we got all excit
ed about the prospects. Think
whit a wonderful leadoff man he
would make by the time he dwin
dled down so there was only 14
inches between his shoulders and
Sunday's hero Lyle Bigbee
who smacked oat the hit that
ended the baseball season, In Sa
lem. Nobody shagged that ball,
so Bigbee could hare kept on
running, bat he wouldn't have
been credited with a home run. .
The rule on that point ia pecu
I liar. Bigbee gets a two bagger,
because Frisco, who scored the
winning run, advanced two
bases on the hit.
Up at Bend, where Bigbee play
ed last year, the fans got to call
Mm "Socko." He hasn't been
iven full credit for it, but Lyle
has been banging the apple with
sufficient regularity while playing
with the Senators this season, to
merit that nickname here. He has
bagged his share of the bingles in
nearly every game. "
Anyway, we'll bet he got as
much kirk out of busting up
that game, as his brother did
oat of busting up the world
eerie ft few years ago. It was in
1025, tbe hottest world series
cm record, and Carson Bigbee
was warming the bench for the
Pirates. Each team had won
three games and Washington
was leading In the seventh
game 7 to 6. It was the eighth
Inning with two down and it
must hare looked to Bigbee as
though he would sit on that
bench through the entire series.
Then Smith hit a two bagger
and Bigbee was sent in as a pinch
bitter. He smashed out the two
base hit that tied the score, and
came in a few moments later on
Cuyler's history making swat that
decided the series.
Before getting back to our
own little world series and its
riotous conclusion. It's only fair
to mention that Lyle has been
up in the big noise, too, and
would be there yet except for
in unfortunate, Injury. Be still
knows what to do with that ash
One peculiar thing about Sun
day's game probably escaped
everybody but the scorers. Up to
the eight inning, not one Mt. Scott
player was put out at first base,
excepting one who tried to beat
out a dropped third strike. Not one
ordinary infield putout at first in
seven innings. That probably
doesn't set any record, but it must
come very close to it. It's signif
icant, too, with respect to the vis
itors' ninth inning rally. Unless a
team makes a fair average of put
outs at first base, it's "a sure sign
somebody is working too hard
generally the pitcher.
That is what Coleman was do
ing in this, game. He was pitch
ing such tight game that none
of the enemy con Id hit the ball
squarely. They were missing it
or hitting under it. And that
pace finally told on Coleman in
this game as we've seen it do
onc or twice before. We don't
like to say I te!d you so, hut
it's a, fact that about the sixth
inning, we predicted he couldn't
keep it up.
(Frisco must have been thinking
the same thing, for he had Russell
out there warming; lp( and when
he, was needed, Rugs was ready to
pitch. All you wolves who have
been! belittling Frisco may chew
ton- that for a while.
As for that other outstanding
incident in Sunday's game, in
which Rodie Lamb and Ted Gir
od tangled in a lively mix for
one brief round, we don't wish
to say very much. Ball players
should be able lo take a little
good n&tured rough stuff. And
brothers, when they play on the
same team, ought to let one an
other fight their own battle?.
Rodie apparently hit Ted first,
but from all we hear, he had
tbe time honored provocation.
' Funny how these highly touted
stars generally fall to come across.
Howard Maple came very near be
ing useless to the Senators Sun
day. Three times he came to bat
with everything set for a killing,

Grant Harris Jinx Broken as
Lyle Bigbee Poles Hit
To Win Game
Baseball 'tools' were hung up
In the closet so far as Salem was
concerned, after the Senators
Sunday capped the climax of a
banner season by administering a
5 to 4 defeat to the Mt. Scott Ti
gers, thus bringing to Salem the
championship of the tall intercity
tournament in addition to the
Oregon-Washington league title
won previously and the best claim
any team has to the state cham
pionship. The tenth inning rally in which
Lyle Bigbee drove out the hit that
scored Frisco Edwards with the
winning run, also broke the "jinx
which Grant Harris, Mt. Scott's
star twirler, has held hanging
over the local team all season.
He had defeated the Senators
four times, twice under Albany's
colors and twice for Mt. Scott.
Senators Get Three
Buns in Second
Harris was badly "off" with
respect to control in the second
Inning, and the Senators scored
three runs which, in view of
Ralph Coleman's tight pitching,
appeared to be enough to win the
game. Things continued to look
that way until the ninth, when
Foss misjudged Calkins' long
drive and it went for a homer. A
walk and two errors followed, and
before the fans could realize it the
visitors had three runs, with no
body out and the bases loaded.
Then Ralph Russel was called
to the box, and the Senators stead
ied down to retire tbe side with
only one more run scored. The
last putout of the inning nearly
caused a general riot, for Lamb
was a trifle rough in tagging T.
Girod; that youth spoke a
"naughty word" and Lamb lam
med him one. The rest of the Gi
rod family came swarming in, but
all of the belligerents were soon

wards drew a base on balls, and

singled, his fourth hit of the day.
Bigbee followed with a low drive
to center field, scoring Kdwards
with the winning run.
After the Senators' three runs
were scored in tho second inning
the bases were still loaded when
Howard Maple came to bat, but he
grounded out to the second. Again
in the sixth he cams up with two
men on and popped out to third
base; and in Che first he had
grounded cut to Harris for the
last out with a man on third.

And his fielding was no more

We rise to remark it's been
a great old season.
Can the Cnb's pitchers stop the
teams win cross bats in the world's series since the Black men have their pennant sewed up and only a
tough break can keep the Windy City boys out of it. Any gabfest you know, a friendly argument which
ends In fist throwing will wax hot when the fence busting quintet of the "A's" are mentioned. Just
look at them (left to right), Bing Miller, Mickey Cochrane, George Haas, Al Simmons and Jimmy Fox,
with a combined average of .342. That's slagging row for any pitcher to get by, but Hornsby does ex
pect his hurlers to come through. They're good Rogers but they're in n tough spot. Plenty of "Chi" fan
will tell yon that Guy Bush and Charlie Root are the pitchers who will show these Quakers few trick.
That may all be so, yet you can't help thinking that these babies have their eyes on the ball and It will
take extra fine slabwork to stop them.

Although they will not be called

proaching managerial strategy.
The American leaguers think the
A's will win and the National ath
letes string along with the Cubs
but that is not the main argument.
There Is room for debate on the
speed of the fast ball pitchers in
volved. If the Athletics know
whether Robert Moses Grove can
throw a high hard one with more
on it than can George Earnehaw
or George Walberg, the big
"Rube," they remain discreetly
silent, but it is not so with the
players who bat against the trio.
Members of the St. Louis
Browns cast a vote for Earnshaw.
The Cleveland Indians' ballot
went to Grove and an umpire in
the vicinity said Walberg was
faster than either of his col
leagues. Let Bib Falk take the stand.
"When Grove wants to throw that
ball up there as fast as ho can,
look out," said the big Texan.
"Earnshaw and Walberg are plen
ty fast but for the old blistering
speed get out of Grove's way."
Little Jackie Tavener nodded
assent and then added a contri
bution of his own:
"I don't want to put him in any
speed competition but when you
are talking about Athletics pitch
ers, 1 11 toss in one vote for Old
Jack Quinn as a good slow ball
"That old fellow's got a spitter

Probability Seen That Extra
Games Will be Played
By RUSSELL J. NEWLAXD
Associated Press Sports Writer
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 30.
(AP) Baseball sings its swan
ong In the Pacific coast league
this week but the chances are
about two to one it will come up
with an encore after the season
The season's schedule will be
completed with next Sunday's
games. But don't forget, folks, the
season was spin, suddenly ana
without provocation, last July.
The San Francisco Mission Reds
galloped off with first half honors
but Hollywood's stars have nudged
into top position during the tail
end of the second half.
Two games to the good and sev
en to play, the Stars are almost
"in." They meet Portland this
week but if the Ducks play the
same kind of ball they did last
week, when Oakland picked oft
five of the seven games, the Stars
will not have much difficulty in
clinging to their perch.
Trailing Hollywood, the Mis
sions have a long chance to "cop"
and finish baseball for this year.
Tho Missions meet Seattle's In
dians who have had a strong hold
on the cellar title, for most of the
season. A clean up for the Mis
sions with Hollywood "taking a
few on the chin" at the same time
would upset the calculations.
If Hollywood wins, the 1929
championship will be decided in a
seven game series, as last year.
with the field of battle alternating
between Lot Angeles and San
San Francisco's Seals finish the
schedule at Sacramento and Los
Angeles comes to Oakland.
Ike Boone, husky outfielder of
the Mission Reds, has hit 56 home
runs to date and still has a chance
to break the all-time record for
circuit swats in the league. In the
rarified atmosphere of Salt Lake
City, Tony Lazerri hit 60 homers
in 1925. Bone's efforts to date Is
far more remarkable than Laz
zeri's because in this near-sea-level
territory the ball doesn't sail
through the air for such long dis
tances. e i
SATUHf PUT OFF
The opening of the football sea
son in Salem was still further de
layed Monday when It was an
nounced that the game which was
in prospect for this week end,
Willamette vs. St. Johns Bach
elors, a club team from Portland,
had fallen through.
The Willamette athletic author
ities have decided that Instead of
a game with an outside team Sat
urday, they will schedule a con
test which will be in all respects
a real game, between "Team A1
and "Team B," two groups chosen
from the Bearcat squad, for Fri
Coach Spec Keene is of the
opinion that this game will give
him a better opportunity to look
over his candidates, than would a
came with an outside team. It
means In effect that he will have
two more weeks to baud up an
outfit that may cope with the
powerful attack of Coach Mc-
Ewan's Oregon eleven.
Keene saw Oregon and Pacific
play last Saturday, and was Im
pressed with the power which Mc-
Ewan has built up this season,
of mother love.
