"Shorty" Miller's Homer Only One in the Slaughter SHORTY MILLER "Shorty" Miller combed a fast one at the Steelton - Burnham game yesterday which rolled him clear around the paths. The way "Shorty" jams his war club you would not think he could get any power to his blow, but they used to think the same of Willie Keeler who pasted a circuit drive every now and then. There was something pathetic about the pastime of yesterday, for the jubilant Y. M. C. A. lads really had an idea they could make the big leaguers look silly, such is the confidence inspired by a season of nothing but victory. Burnham announced a couple weeks ago that she would like to see the club that could trim her, and she found that club without traveling any further than Cottage Hill. It was like - .aking a crutch from an armless cr'.pple. Even the oldest bench warmer on the Steelton team got into the lineup before the havoc of hits was silenced Bulger leading off the batting list. Some of the ancient - veterans ran round the sawdust so often that they called, for "massage." Young Mr. Albright, pitcher for Burnham, will have many a nightmare, in the course of his life when this fatal day crops up In his dreams. He was a glutton for punishment and who knows it may make a pitcher of him. ' Steelton Is in good shape for the strenuous fracas to - morrow with Lebanon, the pitches keyed up. and the men hitting at a lively rate. If Lebanon wins it will be because she has a better fortified team. Fall of the Baatlle BURNHAM AB, R. 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - H. O. 0 3 C. Albright. If 4 Hason, 2b 3 Welcomer, lb 4 J.
