RETURN GAME—SIG'MEN VS RADIOMEN
Those Wednesday afternoon ball
games of the "C" Div. appear to be a
routine affair now.
The write-up carried last week
stirred the radiomen into action supposedly to wipe out the hurt of those
remarks and the defeat as well, but
to no avail.
The big trouble seemed in this game
to be that the radiomen used too many
pitchers. Nine in all, we believe, resulting in none of them really getting
McMurphey held the radiomen hit-
less four innings and in the seventh
turned the mound over to Willmuth,
who finished the slaughter, both pitchers being backed up by a million
dollar infield. Charlie Chay starred
at short. Brandies says no more baseball for him. Why?
This game ties the series at two all,
the play off—well, maybe, in Brooklyn, Norfolk or points east; who can
tell? Plenty of good sportsmanship
and good clean fun is had by all at
these little informal games. Many
divisions should try it out, keeps that
old arm and eye in trim you know,
and makes for good spirit and feeling. Score: Signalmen, 12—Radiomen,
Due to the lack of space the lineup
and positions cannot be given, although last week's lineup remained practically intact.
