MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JULY 18 ·" .. ^935 FIFTEEIN Out of The PRESSBOX Bj M1ICHBIX ANCIENT HISTORY He's old Elmer Miller now . . . fellow who's too old to play majo league baseball, who lives quietly i his home town of Fairmont, Minn. teaching kids the inside of the na tional game in his odd moments But don't get the idea that this fel low is stooped and withered. He ca: still shovv a heel to most of th semipro youngsters, and it wasn't s long ago that he was up ther among- the big fellows himself. * * * In fact, it was in 1931 that Elme Miller made some baseball historj as a New "crk outfielder. Of all th outfield catches made in his lif^timi of experience as a player, one stand, out in his memory. * * * Other catches may have been more difficult, many certain!., looked more spectacular, but none meant so much as one that is gen erall conceded to have won for thi New Yor!- Yankees the pennan. that year and the right to play in t-ie world's series. * * * It was In a game with Cleveland Cleveland was on the heels of the Yanks during the latter part of the season, and if Cleveland had won that series, the next to the last of the year, it probably would have meant that the pennant would have gone to the Indians instead of the Yanks. * * * Waltc Hoyt started in the box for the Yanks, but the Indians belted him freely and the lead which the Yanks held early in the game began to dwindle. When the Indians started to pound Hoyt in the latter stages of the game, he was removed from the box with the score 7 to 6 in favor of the Yanks and the bases filled with Tris Speaker at bat. * * * Here was a dangerous situation, with, one of the greatest batters ol all time swinging his bat menacingly. Carl Mays, ace hurler for the Yanks in those days, took the hill Things couldn't have looked much worse for the Yankee pitcher. + * * There was the usual conference between manager and players as to what would be done with Tris. Elmer listened in, but the conference ended like most of them do in such a situation -- the pitcher would go aliead and use his best judgment in disposing of the man. * * * All three outfielders played deep . for Speaker. He could hardly hit 'one over their heads without it be] ing good for a homerun. * * * Mays wound up with his peculiar submarine -delivery and threw several wide ones to the batter. Then he got one in that seemed to meet with Tris' approval. * « * Speaker swung? and the ball shot like a bullet toward centerfield, a high looper which Second Baseman Ward could not reach after he had raced far in his effort to get under it. Miller was off after the ball at the crack of the bat from his position far back, almost to the outfwld fence. * * * Like all good outfielders, Elmer sensed just where the ball was going as soon as it hit the bat. He made a wonderful run and leap, catching the ball at his shoetops when it was just settling down to hit the grass. * * * Had the ball gone for a single the score would have been tied, and possibly two runs would have come in, winning for Cleveland. As it was, the Yanks won the game, 7 to 6. * * * The catch took the spirit out of Cleveland. They lost the next game to the Yanks, all their punch seeming to have been exhausted after Elmer had made that heartbreaking catch. In the final series of the season, the Yanks clinched the pennant in a game with the Philadelphia Athletics, Elmer catching the ball on the final out of the game. * * * Elmer has that ball in his possession at home, and it carries the autographs of all the members of the pennant wining Yankee team. He prizes that ball highly. It meant his first and only opportunity to play in a world's series, that between the Giants and the Yanks in 1921.

KOCKS LEAVE LEAGUE. DES MOINES. July 18. (/I?)--The future setup of the Western league remained indefinite today, following the withdrawal of financially troubled Rock Island, but a definite statement clarifying the situation was promised by League President Dale Gear before game-time tonight. Three future possibilities remained open for the organization. If a new Rock Island franchise owner is found the league may continue with eight clubs, it may continue with seven clubs by holding one team idle each night, or the number may be reduced to six by withdrawal of another team. No Salary, JS T o Game. Rock Island, long troubled with mounting debts, presented the resignation at a league meeting.at Cedar Rapids late yesterday and cancelled its game with St. Joseph. Isander players refused to take the field Tuesday night for failure to receive back salaries. Some league followers inclined to the opinion the league may be cut to six teams unless overdue salaries of Council Bluffs players are adjusted. Threatening to disband, the rails players agreed yesterday to await a decision from William G. Bramham, czar of minor league baseball, to whom their complaint was carried by telegram. Salaries earned since donning the Bluffs name June 25 were met by the Bluffs Junior Chamber of Commerce under a purchase option, but back salaries promised to be taken over by the league remain unpaid, Rails Take Beating. Pending Bramhan's reply, the Rails took the fielld last night to suffer a 10 to 7 defeat from Keo- tuk, while at Sioux City the Davenport Blue Sox were pounding out a 7 to 4 win over the Cowboys. Cedar Rapids hustled 5 runs home in the fourth inning of its encounter with Des Moines to win 7 to 6. Gear told league officials a schedule revision would not be necessary if seven teams continue, but vould be required for a six-team "inish of the season. WESTERN* LEAGUE Jxeokuk at C.

HALLAHAN,GROVE SPLIT HONORS OF COMEBACK TRAIL Wild Bill Gets Better Every Time He Goes on Mound, Wins Five in Row. By HUGH S. FOLLEKTON, JR. Associated Press Sports Writer Robert Moses Grove and "Wild' Bill Hallahan arc the outstanding current candidates for the honor of staging the greatest major league comeback of 1935. Grove has attracted more attention largely because of the $100,000 price tag he carried when Connie Mack sold him to the Red Sox, but thy revival of Hallahan has been almost as rema-kable. Last season Hallahan, no longer as wild as he used to be, just managed to pitch 10 complete games and had a record of S victories and 12 losses with a pennant-winning club. Betfer and Better. He got off to a poor start again this year, losing his first three games. He broke the spell late June and has rolled up five successive victories, seemingly getting better on each start. In four complete games since that first triumph, Bill has allowed a total of 14 hits, checking the Braves with 4 blows to extend the Cards' winning streak to 13 straight with a 2 to 1 triumph Wednesday. Dutch Brandt provided some real opposition on the hill, giving only 7 b'ow.9, but Terry Moore's ninth inning homer broke up the battle after Manager Frank Frisch smacked a pinch double and scored the tying run in the eighth. Grove Helps Rox. Grove got on the victory road earlier and has won 11 games, the last 5 in succession. He assured the Red Sox of a stay in the American league's first division by pitching them to a 3 to 1 triumph over Cleve land in the second game of Wed nei'day's doubleheader after tbe; had won the opener 13 to 5. The more famous "Lefty" was touched for 8 blows while Monte Pearson gave the Sox only 5, but his batterymate, Moe Berg, drove in 3 runs to decide the game. The twin triumph put the Red Hose into fourth place by two full games. The Cardinal victory settled the team more iirmly in second place the Phillies turned back Chicago 3 to 1 on the combination of Curt Davis' 5 hit flinging and a concentration of 4 straight blows off Bill L 2 in the fourth while the Dodgers jelted the Pirates over twice. Earnshaw Wins One. After barely lasting to take the opener 5 to 4, Brooklyn racked up a 5 to 0 triumph when big George Earnshaw turned in a 7 hit game. The Giants broke a three-game .osing streak by slamming out 15 Mows behind Carl Hubbell to defeat the Reds G to 3. It was the first Cincinnati loss in eight starts. Washington rounded out the American league program by jounding three St. Louis pitchers : or a dozen hits and an 8 to 4 victory. Rain halted the Tigers and Athletics while the White Sox- Yankee game was played in lasc Sunday's doubleheader. STANDINGS NATIONAL LEAGUE U*. I» Pet.| \V. I» Tct.
