BILLY EVANS SAYS
:
'In little Hendrickson, Boston
seems to have a promising young
ster. While Hendrickson is bet
ter than the average at bat and
in the field, he is best on the
paths. In a game at Detroit last
WIJ
fall he beat out four infield hits.
One was hit to "Dony" Bush and
fielded cleanly, yet Hendrickson
beat the ball.
I saw his nerve tested the last
Boston series at Chicago in 1911
Tris Speaker was in center and
Hendrickson in right. Speaker is
about twice the size of Hendrick
son, and very fast. The score
was close and when a Sox player
hit the ball to right center the
crowd let out a yell that ought to
have been heard in Milwaukee.
A couple of men were on the
bases at the time. Both Speaker
and Hendrickson devined that un
less the ball was caught it meant
the loss of the game. Both start
ed at full speed, shouting for the
ball, but the yelling of the crowd
drowned their voices.
They came together with ter
rific force and fell to the ground
unconscious. I called time and
everyone hurried to the injured
players. Speaker recovered in a
minute or so. The little fellow
was seriously hurt and it was five
minutes before he regained con
sciousness. Boston and Chicago
players still laugh when they
think of his first words:
"Did I hurt Tris very much?"
Figures are beginning to
tumble. The box score comes
apace.
There are now about 260,000
miles of submarine telegraph ca
bles in the world, and of this
more than 100,000 miles has been
laid in the past ten years.
"Gosh! gotter plow today!"
won't be a remark filled with vis
ions of strenuous labor when a
new gang-plow is installed all ov
er the countrv. It has 50 nlnws
and is drawn by three traction
engines, and can plow an acre of
ground in less than fiVe minutes.
