I'lUV WAU !»,ONDS AM) STAMI'S The Pipefitters didn't pay any .ttc'nlion tc; the fact that Tommy vas an ex-big leaguer. They just vaded in and .started slamming him all around tho field. Tommy's hi;;b hard one was as fast n-s ever — he -was setting plenty of the Pipefitters down on strikes. But in between the strikeouts came base hits—plenty of them. • When the soldiers came to bat in the seventh they found themselves three big runs behind. The Pipefit- ters led r, to 3. And when one man got on, things still didn't look too cfood for the Sibcrt gang. Tho weak end of the batting order—in fact the weakest part of the batting order—was up. It's baseball tradition that pitchers can't- hit any better than they can design hats—and pitcher Tommy Hughes stepped in. Tommy waggled his bai around. He took a cut at the nitch and connected—the ball grazed through the infield, over second base, and into center field. The pitcher tossed away his war club and sprinted down lo first base. Pitchers are always proud of their base hits. Some moundsmen—like tho wasgish Lefty Gomez—would r.ither talk about .1 scratch single than :» shutout, And Tommy proud- v stepped on first and looked up to SIT>. the throw-in from center leld. But. there wasn't any throw-in. The rnntnr-floJder didn't have the ball. Kuchcs didn't \vnsle any time finding out. why—he took a couple of stops toward ser- ond tn make sure they wouldn't pull the old hidden-ball trick on him. And Then be dashed for the middle sack anri pulled up. But there was still no throw-in. Hughes couldn't :iguro it out. Ke knew he hadn't hit the ball hard i enough to blast it over the flolder's head—and besides, the a.irdencr wasn't chasing; it. Ho was walking slowly toward second base with a pux/.led look on his face. And then Tommy saw what had happened. The grass behind so.c- onci was thick. Somewhere between the bag and the deep outiield the b;vll had rolled to a stop. And nobody could Jind jl- Hughos edged away from second —the first baseman and pitcher dashed out to hclo the outfielders ook for the missing ball. They night find it at any mimire—hut Tommy sciueraed down the line and then he turned and whipped toward third. Tho man ahead nf him scored and Hughes turned for another look at the searching party. But it w.ns .•still liitJo-and-seck lor the Pipefitters, Every one of them — except tho catcher—was frantically combing the prmss ynd Tommy left third base and stormed across tho plate—a hom'c run in four sections while the baseba.ll was missing. And the soldiers went 0:1 to win the game. == MIDJMITE Your Eyeglasses Shop C «f •' n* Tomlinson Xirary Ullilditi^ Nau^atiick, Conn.
