During Ihe decade since that afternoon in Cincinnati, Scott has played but once a year—In an "old timers'" game — and Lou Gelvrlg has readied and passed his record. When Scott was whipping* (hem across the diamond from his short- step post, the great Wally Plpp was taking ihcin In. and Gehrlg was only a .rookie trying to get a break. Now the Deacon, carrying 180 pounds compared lo the 135 he boasted as a player, operates a Lwvling establishment. And as n pin destroyer, he's almost as successful as he was when robbing enemy batsmen of hits. In IOM he look third place in Ihe A.n.C. tournament with 1,933 pins lor the all-evenis class. He remembers that vividly, though Ills baseball memories are n litllc hazy. On several occasions ho has finished in the the singles and doubles.
