Georgetown Team Given One
of Worst Beatings in
18 TO 1 IS THE SCORE
Lawlor Makes Sensational Catch Old
Eli Hammers Three
Yale administered the worst drubbing
Georgetown has received In a Ions time,
perhaps in Its baseball history, on the
Hilltop yesterday, simply running away
with the game, IS to 1.
Miserable errors, for which there was
no possible excuse, and thoughtless plays
of commission and omission were re
sponsible for more than a half of the
eighteen runs scored by the Bulldog nine.
The rest of the runs w ere scored by Tale
on clean, sharp, wallops to all corners of
the field, the first and last innings being
set aside for a general game of clout and
run by the New Haven tribe.
Three Georgetown pitchers faced the
fusillade. First it was Lynch, then Felnle,
and last of all, Heffeman Of this trio,
"Big Heff" did the best w ork. and f or six
of the seven Innings he pitched Yale was
only able to make four hits and two runs.
In the last Inning, howeer. his team
mates became careless and failed to give
him any support worth mentioning, the
result being six hits and eight runs. Had
Heflernan been accorded fair support the
side would have been retired in this ses
sion with but one-fourth of this collec
tion. Burdette Lends Hitters.

WITH THE NATIONALS
Charlottesville. Va., March 21 The boys
all hated to see Harry Welchonce Ieae
camp Monday. He was easily the most
popular recruit among the recruits, al
wajs smiling and bubbling over with
good humor. Griff may discover later
on In the season that he has let out a
mighty good ball player, but with Shanks,
Milan and Moeller It was hard to see
where Welchonce could fit in.
Catcher Jack Egan, who Is nursing a
split thumb, declares that he will be
back In the game Inside of three days.
"I am sure that Just as soon as the
thing heals up a bit, I can tie a piece
of tape around the sore spot and go to
work. I'm going to try it anyway,"
stated the plucky little catcher.

NOTES OF THE GAME.
When Yale started to roll up that
batch of runs in the ninth Inning the
humor of the situation got the best of
the crowd and everj thing the George
town plajers did provoked a laugh.
There is nothing truer than that everj
dog has his da. The Yale bulldog had
his yesterday, but thanks to Dame For
tune its only one day out of ifo.
Pompclly attracted considerable atten
tlon Both of his hits were corkers, one
being a long double. Yesterdas's bln
gles make his total six hits in two dajs
That's walloping the ball some.
Only thirty-two men faced the Yale
pitcher in nine innings.

Speaal to The Waimston Ilerald
Pensacola. Fla.. llarch 25 A talc drawn
from the Imagination and clothed in
flossy terms bids fair to do much harm
to both the Cle eland club and to Nick
Various reasons hae been gnen tor
the refufal of the Chllhotie wonder to
sign a Cle eland contract. All of the
reasons can be traced back to that lurid
storv reeardlncr the tremendous talue
placed upon Cullop that so-called $25,010
purchase price, uhich was gien much
prominence during the winter months.
If Cullop came to the uieveiana ciud
ith less notoriety he would be here
training hard, he would be satisfied, and
the prospects for future success, both
artistic and financial, probably would
fie greiter than they are at present
Cullop has been labeed the I25.O0O phe
nom of 1911 That sounds attractive. It
s oulte sensational. It would be re
markable If such a price had been paid
for him, or for any other plaer for that
Without attempting to take from
"Nlck" a particle of the popularity or
clorv which he ha acquired, a plain
statement regarding that "tremendous
purchase price" may not be amiss.
If the truth -were actunlly known it
woi,ld be recognized that Nick is one of
the cheapest plajers on the Cleveland
roster That Is not the slightest reflec
tion on his ability. Ty Cobb. Trls Speak
er, Walter Johnson. Ed Walsh. Chief
Bender, Eddie Plank, and. In fact, most
of the greatest stars of baseball were
what might be called cheap players, in
asmuch as the amount paid for them was
little or nothing.
Cullop was purchased from the Bristol
club bv the Naps last season for J1.000.
He was turned pver to New Orleans for
seasoning. When the campaign had
ended the Cleveland club officials decided
that he might make good In the Ameri
can League in 1313. Consequently they
grabbed him and they didn't pay 5,000
or the equivalent cither.
The Cleveland club turned orer Pitcher
Brenner, Third Baseman Kibble. Out
fielder Hendryx and some other players
to New Orleans. An enthusiastic scribe
figured those players were sent there as
part payment for Cullop.
price was placed on each player.
By doping the figures strongly said scribe
reached the conclusion that Cullop was
bought for KS.fO
As a matter of fact the switching of
the aforementioned players from Cleve
land to New Orleans had no more to do
with the Cullop matter than the release
of "BUI" James to Portland, or of Jack
Adams to Toledo.
Cullop cost the Cleveland club the
amount paid to Bristol and that is all
To-day Cullop is practically an un
tried joungster He cannot guarantee
success In 1513 or 1314. Failure to work
in 1''13 may ruin him entirely. No man
in the trial stage is in a position to dic
tate terms. When he once establishes
himself, however, and show& real merit,
then ho can commertsjrate with tho value
of his services and can get It.
A man with tho future, which Cullop
seems to possess, need have no fear. Pub
lic opinion helps to govern the salaries
of great baseball plajers Just as It does
of great actors

Old Ell will cross bats with Catholic
University this afternoon at University

promised. Yale has had remarkable suc
cess thus far on its Southern trip, and
fresh from its victory over Georgetown
jesterday, the Blue ball tossers will en
deavor to break the Red and Black's
winning streak. Coach Qulmby. of the
New Haven outfit, has been saving his
star twiner. Brown, and will send him
in to serve them up to the Brooklanders.
Chief Greene. Catholic University's
great Indian slab artist, will oppose
him, and a pitching duel should result.
Greene has not worked in over a week
now and ought to be in tiptop condition.
He twirled the opening game for the
Brooklanders against the University of
Virginia nine, and showed by his work
in that contest that he still has all the
stuff that made him famous as a college
pitcher last season. Charley Moran,
coach of the Catholic Unlversltl'. nre-
dicts that Greene should experience the
best sear of his college career.
Capt. McDonnell will do the receiving
for the Red and Black, and the rest of
the line-up will remain the same.

Displaying a never-say-dle spirit, the
catholic University ball club defeated
Holy Cross in the ninth inning yesterday
on the Brookland diamond, 9 to 8, after
one of the greatest uphill battles ever
witnessed In this section of the country.
Holy Cross shoved eight runners over
the pan In the second lnnlnr. but Coach
Moran's lads kept plugging, ana by a
run or five in the eighth frame, tied
the count at 8 all In the final chapter,
Plpps double and lioran's single put
the game In the record book.
Plpp played another Metier game at
first, handling ten chances without an
error, and getting four hits out of as
many trips to the block, two of these
wallops being good for two sacks
the ninth inning he smalled the ball
against the right field foul pole, which
would have been good for a circuit trot,
and then came back with a double.
Plpp s hitting has been the sensation or
the Brooklanders" play so far tnts sea
son, and the big fellow bids fair to be
the star hitter of the team.

Trayers got away all right in the Initial
Inning, but In the second the Worcester
collegians got after him. with the result
that he was chased to the stable after
six Holy Cross runs had been chalked
up, and three men were on the sacks.
Tommy Rjan then took up the burden.
and while two runs were scored off him
he did not allow a tally after this round.
