Sports ' Sunday Morning, October 1, 1841 {•| £r 7* > REVERIES, PAST JOC Ct6pflUS PRESENT. FUTUJUS i BY ROBS PRYSOCK i Ther* "will be 'World Series gam««, Little World Series and. many other series .final for the 1944 baseball season in various parts of th« country, but it U doubtful if there will be any series on any diamond anywhere that will be closer:or more hotly'contested than our own. Pen- Mar series now being played. Two games of A scheduled three out of fiva game series for the championship of the league this Mason Have beea played, and the third meeting of the contenders for the crown will open today at CentervUle, ; The flrsfl : jrajne, played Hi OeatcrviUe two weeks ago today, 'resulted In the Queen City Brewers being returned victor* ot the play by an 8-7 score. Last Sunday, the «econd g»n» w»« played at the North End grounds her* in Cumberland, and that contest closed with the Brewers again on top by a score of 13 to 11. The third game will be played at Centrevllls thl» after-noon, beginning »t 3:30 o'clock. '.While the Queen CHy club is leading two to nothing in the series, it does not mean that the two game •winners have had an easy time or that the series has been a one-sided affair. JFar from it. In garfi ol the game*, the Centerville Reds took the- lead and retained It to the final minutes of each game, when the Brewers knocked the ball about the lots and scored enough runs-in the ftnal innings to win the game. Each of the games has been hard f ought with the. two teams well matched. The Centerville club is trying to retain the championship for two consecutive years, havtojr been crowned with that title at iha clos« of the 1343 ' season. Durins the first half of the 1944 split season, the Reds took the lead and kept It to the end of. the half, and through that half season •winning, they . became the opponent of the Qneeri City club, winner of the second half, in the present series. Daring ths latter- *mi?.aoMi>i:, slic K6u£ didn't show as they did In the early part of the year, and were unable to hold out against the Victorians Queen City club. If the Brewers win today's game, the series..will be over and Queen City, will be the 1844 champion, but if the Reds win. today, they, will come to Cumberland next Sunday to play the fourth game, and maybe It will mean a full flvo game series as originally proposed. However, there is precedence lor such a thing 'as -winning—for the Queen Qity—in" three straight gomes, as it has been done before. This fa the third straight year ta which Centervtlle »nd Queen City have battled for championship honors In. 'the league. Three years ago, In 1612, the Brewers beat the-Beds in a two .out of three gtun»' eerlcs. Last, year, CentervUle "beat the Brewera three'-straight. games in what was scheduled as a three out of five game series. So this year, there is the fjwartion raised: "Will the Brewers reverse the style and become champion In three -straight tames?" The Brewers are composed of players, many ot whom cannot lay claim to-youth any more. Younger players were featured in several of the other clubs in the Fen-Mar League this year but the older players of the Brewers were able to play « steady game and win- the final half and go into a two-game lead in the playoff series. It will be interesting to see how they come out -That gsma Friday evening at Fort Hill Stadium has convinced football fans and general supporters of the two competing schools that both Fort Hill and Allegany present 'the best prospects this season in several years. Fort Hill won the first of the two games nchednled io he played by the two teams this year, and they were justly and fairly entitled to the laurels accompanying the victory, In winning, however} tha victor hnd a full realization of things-1< come. Allegany Campers starte* the 1944 training season not too we! hfeeled, and it wna the wonder o! those who saw the fame Friday eve- nlng that they were able to do so well. AUegahy lost heavily las spring, and at that time, when Coach Walter "Bill" Bowers made the statement that tho loss -would not be as serious to football prospects as to basketball and bnseball we wondered how he could feel tha way, when we considered the Ioss»s In football. The coach didn't seem to be worried about football at all but expressed himself in no un certain terms as to the blow sus talned in the other two main sports \Ve commented on this In this column at the time last June, and we were "unconvinced. We could see few players of experience left for the couch to build a. football team around, and the more we thought of It, the more •we wondered what he bad 'In mind. We never learned until this fall. Even In the past few •weeks, Coach Bowers has nwde few stateinent-t that seemed to tis to be optimistic. Neither were they pessimistic, and we began to get the feeling that he had something that no others knew about. Right from the start he had dlffl eulty getting his team together be cause of a lack of equipment, but h went on, sometimes with a sma' number out for squad practice, an from day to dny. there were absen tees, but ha went on and entere his first game at Somerset, re suiting in a complete rout of an op posing team that Inflicted Injurte to his boys, but his team didn't Je the others score. Then Friday night, on the strength of thai victory, we had the thought that bir'team wonid play a ctofW-Mfd&e battle with his scb*»T« rrf*4«»t rival, because o.Vajsaf!>tfa!jji)r. and b«- eaus« he .tad comer'boyt- in the backfleld who enuld throw the ball and some others who could .catch it In passing for train*. We alto considered [be kicking . - ability of John Cox. n»dem<in- f • strated In the floriwrscl gamp, \ ami balancing H with the tae work of fort Hill'* learn In 1U first g»me. w« judged th« twe tnuns could battle to jm even score with a difference only in' the placement,. Well, we slipped, as Cox failed to :lck, and rort Hill's Donald Whlle- rhari kicked a goal, contrary to his "Irst game's experience. • .-..'.• • •' And, Fort Hill won because that ame Don Whileman played a -whale of a game, and he sparked bis. team to: a well deserved victory. He 'had able assistance from Ralph Beard; Donald .McGlll and Dick White, deception in handling the .ball, so well seen from our position in the stands, was .unfathomable by; their opponents on.the ground, and'only that prevented smearing the plays, as the Fort Hill line was not equal to the manipulation of the play in the rear. ; In speaking of UK line, AUegany's line also was deficient, only one side of their line being able to stand up and give protection to their ba^kfield players in handling passes. If Whiteraan can be trained to run to the left as well as h« runs to th« right, be will be (..very dangerous man, as he can hide his movements until he is off. It was very noticeable that "Whiteman bore to the right »nd Beard to the left, with McGlll striking through center or guard positions. Despite this knowledge, Whiteman reeled off a total of 125 yards at the right side, averaging seven yards In his eighteen stabs and drives. Nobody can overlook the fact that he has set himself a record to bent. I have been told he started last season in the same manner and then Injury cut him. down. We are hoping he has no.Injury this 1 year, as we like to sea a good player have the opportunities.
