To Muse and Amuse 8t>(»Ntt» eititou Sure Dlf Up Player* For baseball enterprise all Altoona fans will have to take-off their bonnets, new straws or spring felts to Manager Earl J. "Beany" Plunket of the Penn Central baseball, team. Of all the hard-working hustling baseball promoters in and around Altoona Beany wins' the prize. He hustles and he gets the ball players. No major or minor league ball team got a look at more baseball talent this season than Beany Plunket. And the players are still coming along. When word went out during the winter months that Penn Central wanted a ball team even better than the team that won the Blair title last year Beany Plunkot got busy and he had the right formula, too, judging by results for ball players poured Into the city from all corners. No less than forty ball players, all of them real good youngsters, have been looked over by the Penn Central team and the toughest job for the club Is t6 put 'em together into a winning combination. Right now Penn Central has- a ball team that could step into the Middle Atlantic circuit and hold its own. In fact the Llghtmen have a team that rates; higher in caliber than the Mid- Atlaritlo league because the Llghtmen own and use more minor league players than are allowed In the Atlantic circuit. Record for Al Ashburn When Al Aahburn, popular Altoona Works ball player assisted in 14 putouts at the Cricket Held In the Plt- calrn-Works game on Thursday he equalled a field record that the major leaguers set up this year. Al pocketed four fly balls for outs and had ten assists to retire the batter at first base. And a lot o.f the chances were nifty fielding plays, too. In the major leagues this season handling 14 chances in a nine inning game without an error Is the 1930 record and Al breezed through to tie this mark with ease. Handling four or five assists and a couple of putoutd is an ordinary days work for any second baseman or infielder, but Al sort of "hogged" every thing as Moe Roberts was chucking his right field ball, only the ball didn't reach right field, but the direction was • O. K. When Al gets his eye on the pill and pokes out his several safeties all things will be rosy at the Cricket lot. Couching Group Signed Everything is fine over at Altoona High as relates to the coaching staff for the 1930-31 school term the board of education this week manipulating the cash on hand, extra money being available for the members of the staff. Coach Snaps Emanuol's salary was fixed at .$3,000 for a nine month term. Ken Bashore and Scrubby McCrelght secured an added stipend for coaching duties. The same holds good for Benny Welnsteln and Fred Davis of the athletic department. The school board elected an additional physical education instructor. He Is Carl West from Juniata college and he will be assigned to the Keith Junior High. He is an all around Juniata athlete. Home Runs Many The home run epidemic that has struck the big leagues has also been felt In the Blair County league this season. So far, with the season just one fourth finished, 13 home runs have been scored In the summaries. In previous years this would have been, a high mark for the season. The Roar- Ing Spring team leads with 6 circuit clouts; Penn Central has 3, Martinsburg and Claysburg each have 2, and Williamsburg has 1. The home runs hitters from Roaring Spring are Wilbur Treese .with 2, Dick Snyder. Fauver. and Lee Ellenberger. The Llght- men's home pun hitters are, Mike Orlando, Fuzzy Andrews, and Hlckey. George Beery and Hinish have hit home runs for Martlnsburg and Hoenstine and Abe BurKet for Claysburg. Maurice Thompson Is the Williamsburg representative In the home run club. Who will be the next? Things Yon Should Know That occupying the pitchers box at the Cricket lawn was a dangerous job for two hurlers . . . and Moe Roberts saved himself from a hospital visit by getting his glove in front of a hard line drive . . . the ball being deflected into the hands of Al Ashburn . . . and County Hilly Just jumped when Louie Pbrta lined one back at him, the ball hugging the grass rolling over second to center field. It isn't often that George "Beebie" Roth, captain and first Hacker takes the count on three strikes . . . but he was called out Thursday. . . . He dodged a couple of wild pitches, fouled off a pair and then a roundhouse curve rolled in that split the plate and Beebie Was surprised. A lot of new sod Is at the Cricket lot and a big force bf workers are on the scraping off the old grass and planting the new. The first day of school dismissal and yet the boys section in left field was deserted . . . and there's a reason . , . it being too nice a day to see a game . . . when all the boys could play, having the whole afternoon to do it. Pepe Pepper Franks got a little too far off first place in the late rounds and Lefty Brinlcer switched the ball over . . . Pete elected to try for second, but he was tagged out as he dusted Into the bag . . . and taking liberties off first on a left handed hurler is dangerous . . . and then some. Herb Bolger got a real workout during the ball game . . . and it was a day he liked . . . good and warm , . . but he didn't need to toll as v Roberts went through the game was satis a flying.
