The cold llKiiros and lines of black type tell stories of £veat days on the diamond Somewhere in those records is the story of Elmer Smith. Few fans of today remember Elmer. He wasn't an all-time pre.'it like the Ruth and the Cobbs. And he wasn't a famous goat like Fred Mcrkle. But, twenty four years apo ISlmcr Smith was a hero to Cleveland baseball fans. He was the biggest man in town. Elmer was nn outfielder for the Indians. When the tribe won the pennant in 1920 Elmer had a healthy hand in it. When the world scries started, Elmer was playing in his rcRular outfield spot—a prood. regular Gardener—but not one of the stars. Elmer earned his way out there .is an average bis loapuer. The tribe met the Brooklyn Dodjicrs in that series. Cleveland \vent wild, over the Indians. Thc pennant-winninp: heroes had the keys to the city. F;ins stormed the park to watch their boys battle for :.he world's championship. Thnt wis a close .series, and an exciting one. The first four f^urics went' by and thc two teams had fougrht 'to n deadlock. The Tribe won two ;ind the Dodgers took two. Then ;ho fifth panic — and Elmer's chance for fame came alor.p. It was at Cleveland on October 10th. Indian fans packed tho ball park—they hung from thc rafters, roarintr encoujviRcment. But when the Cleveland players saw a burly ;ruy wnrminpf up for thc DodR'ers they knew they'd need more than encouragement to win. BuR"'Bur!eigh Grimes was tossing 'cm down for the Dodgers. Grimes was a bad man to argue with on the mound. Tie had plentN of stuff and, what's more, he wn.s a fighter. Burleigh pitched with liis heart as well as with his arm He- wan a groat competitor who hated to lose. On top of that. Grimes was one of thc l.'tst o' the good spitballers. Burleigh was a mast-jr at controlling that unpredictable delivery. When the gome started the Indians out to face what looked like ,1 hard, uphill fight. Jamieson led off for thc Indians in thc last half of thc first inning. The Dodgers hadn't been ,i.b!c to score in thc top of the first. Jamieson started things off on n linppy note for the Indians—he singled to right. Then Wambsganns singled. Two on and none out. Grime; took time o-ut' for- a quick conference with liis inficlders. On the Cleveland-bench there WAS a quick huddle" at thc same time. •A signal wus flashed down to Tris Speaker, who was the next baiter. The order was: Bunt! Speaker bunted down near thc mound and Grimes pounced oiv thc ball. But just as he got his 'Iva.nds or. . it. he tripped. Before Grimes could get up, Speaker was Warden Leo J.

By DUKE KAZLACSKAS (Sports Editor) Manager Bill McKcchnie of the Cincinnati Reds has signed a new two-year contract to manage the Rhinclandcrs The new contract squashed rumors that. General Manager War- ren Giles was ready to drop 'Bi51 and hire a manager who favored a flashier trand of ball. McKechnie has always stressed tight defensive play and good pitching. This season is Bill's seventh at the Cincinnati helm. No other pilot has managed the Reds for more than six years. McKechnie says: "When I cease to. manage the Reds I will lie through managing ball clubs. I'll never manag'e another team." Bill says this doesn't mean he'll retire when the two-year contract runs out — just that he wants to stay 'with the Reds. Thc American association's leading slugger — Bill Nagcl — has been sold to the Chicago White Sox. Bill plays third for the Milkau- kce Brewers, and leads the association in runs batted in. Thc 26- ycav-old infleldcr ha.s hit 23 homers so far tbis season. Kagcl won't report to the White Sox unti! thc Milwaukee season ends this fall. Chicago turned over some cash and players in the deal., but thc White Sox won"t say how much cash or which players were involved venient timas. Jack Hsckoti and Clayt Fellows, twin-killers o'e luxe, didn't have opportunity to work any of their double plays. Thc outfielders with Joe Durkin, playing a beautiful Kami in t-ignt field, Xordy Gauges in center, and Frank Galvin in left, ail made thrilling, running catches. Ed Weaving hit hard at the plate and fielded nicely in shortfield. Ed Galvin rooted hard and loud from thc sidelines, and helped with the refreshments. George Flint, center fielder for •the Seymourites made a pretty st^b in the second inning of a. hard fly ball that drove him nack up against' the bank. Lou Andrews, catcher, smashed Out two hits Tor the losing club. Ed Edwards threw the first ball out and then returned to his job as a batboy. Two local men, each possessing the finest character qualities available, Pete Brennan and Mike Shea, umpired — with Pfcte calling- the strikes and balls and Mike making decisions on thc bases. Jim Quinn coached on third, but the way the volunteers ivcre running ihe bases, a traffic light would have been more adequate. Coach Garry Grant said immediately after last night's game that his charges would prepare themselves for T.hc Watcrbury Fire department, and promised he'd have Lhem in the pink by next Thursday. Refreshments were served by John Moroney and Jim Shepherd, George Casagrande of thc Sey- mourites almost didn't allow refreshment serving 10 continue, as he bombarded the stand all night with softball bats that kept slipping out of his hands as he swung at Uae ball. The Seymour twirlor allowed 15 hits, whil'e he and his 'teammates netted seven hits off Duke Kaslaus- kos. Tho game was a little late in gel- ting started as thc Seymour club was delayed by the Beacon Falls \J police department, who wouldn't let' em' over the Beacon Falls town line.
