J-H.JJ i r;r Turkey Dinner ct ; ' -Tira Ryan's PJaco Attended by 45 There was evidence of lasting friendships at the eighth ; annual dinner of the Nation Wide baseball team at Tim Ryan' Place on Woodlawn Avenue last night. Forty-five men attended the turkey dinner which preceded an interesting speaking program, highlighted by reminiscensea by the team' manager back in 'the late 1220s and the early 1930s, Clement J. Farrell of the Sports Shop, John M. Flynn. eports editor of The Eagle, Roger . O'Gara, Eagle sports writer and WBEC sports-caster, Tim Ryan, former Ifoly Cross baseball .catcher and a leading athlete in this area for many years, and John W. Keegan, retired deputy chief of the Pittsfield Fire Department, who recently returned from Florida. ' la their, brief speeches to the grouo both Mr. Farrell and Mr. Flynn mentioned the co-operative spirit which always was shown on the diamond by the veteran members of the crack Nation Wide nine, a well a the mutual friend' ships which the players have en Joyed amomj. themselves through we-years. Eob Smith of Lenox.- author of "Baseball' the book which Is to another printing, with sales averaging 1S3 to 200 books a week, was the principal apeaker. He re viewed the game of baseball from its early days and told many humorous stories relating to. the na tional pastime. Joe Sharock. a fan, also entertained the group with humorous stories. - , During the dinner vocal elec tions were offered by a trio made up of John F. Ilorgan, a leading tenor in nis outat in the Army during World War I, Dave Chap man and - Vin : McKeever.

Although Coach Ted Harrison's Berkshire school nine was better than Sail bury School at bat yesterday aft ernoon and Bob Adeson of Pitts field, Mass., did a. fine job la the role of relief pitcher for the Bay Stater, Salisbury . gained a 6-4 verdict. Error, three being cnargea to tne visitors' heavy hit ter, Johnny Sinclair, paved the way zor tne victory. The home club scored two in the second, when Fulton, -starting oenumn ' mounosman. was re lieved by Forsyth, but following a rour-run spiurge oy tne Salisbury- men in the third, . Adeson . was given the nod for mound duty. Aaeson - issued .three , -passe. failed to give up a single hit and strucK out eight men in the three and two-thirds innings he labored.

Although It will take competition urider pressure to get a good line on PittsSeld'seara in the Cana dian-American League some idea of the .material could be gained in watching Manager Gen Ilasson send hi charge through a three- hour practice session at Dorothy Deming Field yesterday. For - instance Don llosklns of Rutherford. NJ, young catcher. whose only experience has been in semipro ball, can throw speedy strikes to second base. Bob Leon- hard of Newcomeratown. Ohio. outfielder, has a strong and accu rate arm and belts a ball pretty well. Bob Lemon, outfielder, la a hard hitter and the veteran Johnny: Metro, who can do a good job either ln .the outfield or at third base, ia in fine shape as is Joe Hulik, who showed up so well at second base for the Electrics last season. Joe ' Bodner. shortstop, covers considerable ground and although hi arm l not strong c get the ball away quickly. . John Kunka, third baseman, seems to handle himself well and has a rood arm. Of course, it 1 difficult to Judge an : inflelder at Dorothy Deming are Field because the bounce rather erratic at times. Dick Power of this city worked out some at shortstop ana toox some turn at bat. Manager Has- son wiii lock over Dick again to day. Eddie "Ardolino, '- shortstop, - is spending a few days at his home in Boston as his mother la ' ill. Liddi played third base for Pittsfield the last two weeks of the 1947 season. Phil Durfnski. Walter Murray of Daiton and John Maauga, righthander, and Ted Morojowskl, lefthander, are expected to see action on the mound in an intra-squad game at Dorothy Deming Field today. --.-'!

Aianager Gene Hasson was pleasant with the players and. they practiced as if they got some fun out of It, It will take a few games before a good line can be obtained on the material but Gene is confident that whatever positions need bolstering wm oe strengthened oeiore . the regular season is very far along. Gene heard many nice things about the fans of Pittsfield from the boys who played here and were in the training camp at Suffolk, Va. They aU said that it was a pleasure to play at Wahconah Park because of the warm' reception they received - from the spectators. Leonard v Piilar remarked that if he does not stay with Har-rlsburg he would like to come back here and Ray Rakar expressed the same desire, it is a fine thing to have . baseball player feel that way about the fans of a city because they can help boost a place consiacrauy. - DM You Knew That George L.

Those boys practiced lull gently, played hard to win and actually lived baseball. They were constantly trying to improve their orana ox piay ana iney aiso were always encouraging , each other. Clem said that City League play ers were setter m ane oays or -tne Nation Wide than at present be cause they took the game more seriously umd devoted more time to practice. A musician, ball player or i' person in any other line, who desires, to accomplish something worth wnue. must be willing to devote hour of study ana practice. tl Is a real pleasure to attend a reuenlon of the Nation Wide team because the spirit of good fellow ship abounds. The members of the club have continued good friends tnrougn tne years ana k . snows that such a thing as jealousy never exunea in tneir ranks. An excellent turkey dinner was served cy no means tne least important feature of the party. - Gettlnr line en Material , j . . - The Pittsfield Electrics, who had rthls year from all indications. Wah-aa intra-squad game scheduled forlconah Park is very desirable be- WahcoBah Park Grandstand Because of the heavy costs of building at this time I would suggest that the committee in charge of putting up a grandstand at Wahconah Park cut down on the size of the structure, if necessary to keep within the appropriation. rresent puns cau zor a grand stand seating ' about 1600, Of course there will be some crowds of 4000 or more at Wahconah Park but as nearly all games will be at night a majority of fans would not object to watching the game irom Dieacncrs. A grandstand is needed princi pally to give fans protection in case of extreme heat, rain and also have suitable arrangements for . dressing rooms, concession stands and toilet facilities. The grandstand could be so construct ed that an addition could be built when the wices are not so hieh. When one hears so much stress laid on the cost of putting in piles at Wahconah Park one would fig ure u was planned to put up a ao- story ouuaing there. '- The wooden grandstand, which stood at Wahconah Park for some years, showed no signs of sinking out of sight Thev only disappearing act in which that; grandstand took part was when tne depression came and people started to move the structure away board by board while Pittsfleld was without league base bail. The fog is mentioned when per son object to Wahconah Park as a place for league ball. Fog can cause - trouoie any ' piace. u ne smoke nuisance will be abolished cause the place can be reached so easuy ana mere is so much room for parking automobiles. Another Important feature ; in : favor of Wahconah Park 1 that the place has a lighting system which would cost about t5,0Q0 to duplicate. .t ' 'Iff;' '. ' ' ' ' " ' ' . -. ' Free Television . BOSTON The Boston' Braves and Red Sox announced last night that they would allow 1943 baseball games to be televised free of charge in an effort to stimulate television in New England.

They will be ' allowed to televise the games provided they make satisfactory arrangements with either or both of the television stations in operation this -season. ..
