SIX WEDNESDAY, JANUAIIY 2i),"l93<) J Ball Game Described By Billy Evans :~ KlimMt'S KOTK: This Is the tkM «l » MtiH et U arilcl« in wMch BUJjr Evan* recalls exlraor- <rt<te he fcas.sMn an the .> ; By BILLY EVANS ; The freakiest pitched ball game •I can recall among more than 3.000 games in which I officiated as ah. American .League umpire goes back to the world series of 1920 between Cleveland and Brooklyn. I . Jim Bagby was the pitcher in that I game and I'never quite could make' up my mind as to whether Jim should have felt proud or ashamed of that performance.. . It was In 1920, you will remember, that Bagby won 31 gomes for , Cleveland. That is a lot of game* en the winning side of the ledger and any 'pitcher who accomplishes the feat must be blessed with more than average luck. Bagby surclj had It that year. If he blanked the '. opposition, the Indians would some- bow manage to get one or more runs. If the opposition found Jim for 'eight runs, the Indians would find ways and means to get nine or more. r Bagby;s.good luck continued with him in the. 1920 world scries, though U seemed : as If Dame Fortune Intended to slip him nothing but frowns. Selected to pitch .the second game of the series, Bagby was pitted against Burleigh Grimes. He held Brooklyn to six hits and three runs In'seven Innings but in the' meantime Cleveland bats, thai usually spoke loudly with Bagby working, had been silent under the mastery of Qtlrose' deceptive spitball.. Bagby was beaten, 3-0. .It was 'Bagby's turn to start the fifth game. The series at that time was all even. Probably never In the history of.a world series game was 9, winning pitcher batted as savagely as was Bagby that afternoon. It seemed as If every Brooklyn batter to face nun hit the ball on the rioee. The Dodgers made 13 hits, . yet could score only one run Cleveland won the ball game, 8-1, even though it made one hit less than Brooklyn, ii As a matter of fact, Bagby should ' have been credited with a shutout. ^Brooklyn scored a run in the ninth when a ground 'ball that ''Doc" Johnston should have handled, re° tiring the side, was credited as a hlt-and resulted in a run. I am told Jim took "Doc" to task in the clubhouse after the game, while the rest of the club roared with laughter. . ; » • • :It seemed as if the bases were ipaded' with Brooklyn players all afternoon, but something would Invariably happen to erase them fnmi'UK picture. Three times double plays did it, one of them a throw,.-from Jamleaon .to Steve Q'NeUl, a run at the pUtel 0n v *no(ber momentous 'occasion, with the bases loaded, no one" our'and .several Cleveland pitchers hastily .warming lip.

The result as been nothing; your Uncle Wll- it Is still doing business at the Id stand In Flatbusli. You can say for me," says Uncle Vllbert, "that my team will be up here again this year. And by my enin I mean the Brooklyn Rob- ns." And the same thing goes for Barney Dreyfuss. Barney went in- o baseball "for ills health," fol- o*lng Illness 40 years 'ago. He has been growing healthier every day since—nnd he was especially healthy in 1901, 1909 and 1903 I'hen Fred Clarke was helping him o make the rest of tlio National League teams look like sausages rom Barney's old home In Mnnn- iclin. Germany. He Is healthy now, too, and some- low 1 can't maxe myself believe hat Barney Drcyfius will retire nny sooner than John J. McOraw, Jncle Wilbert, Dan O'Letry or Harry Lauder.

Turn back, baseball's pages and try to find another game like It from a "freak standpoint." ReUrini? The wires carried a tale the other I day to the effect that Barney Dreyfuss, boss of the Pirate crew, was ready to retire after thirty yean of continuous, service as the president of a National League team. We also heard once that Harry Lauder was going on a farewell tour. We believe both of those ] reports were greatly exaggerated. Wasn't it Wilbert Robinson -who I said', The Old Guard dies but it never surrenders!" Or maybe John McGraw? As far as that is concerned It may even have been Dan I O'Uary, who will walk across the | Styx personally when he goes. (What probably has happened Is that Barney DrDeyfuss has turned I over, some maps and time-tables to ' the Junior Dreyfuss, known to the trade as Slim Sam. But Barney 1 Dreyfuss Is not retiring.
