THAT OPENING WORLD'S SERIES GAME AS
SEEN BY f HE POET, BERTON BRALEY
BY BERTON BRALEY
(Written for the United Press.)
Philadelphia, Oct. 9. You won't
find Raoul Naughton on the score
card any place, he never sent a homer
soaring proudly into space, he never
scooped a grounder and he never
caught a fly as" it hurtled swiftly
earthward from the clear and azure
sky; he's never in the coaching box
to yammer and to bawl in fact,
young Raoul Naughton ain't a player
guy at all.
But gentle Raoul Naughton, if you
take him by and large, has the for
tune of the Phillies almost wholly in
his charge he's the little hump
backed mascot of the Quaker City
team, andhe surely "put it over" with
a lot of vim and steam, for in this ini
tial contest he was on the job for fair
when it comes to lucky mascots
Raoul certainly is THERE he is
there with many bells on and a pleas
ant smile and bland, as he scares
away the jinxes with a horseshoe in
each hand.
Yes, you gotta admit that the Phil
lies were lucky, whatever you say of
the game, although Alexander was
clever and plucky and justly deserves
all his fame; his team wasn't there
with the walloping bingle, its hits
were the scratchiest kind, there was
onlv one regular, sure-enough single,
yet fortune was. boosting behind; she
turned Mtie pop-ups iu mis uiai were
needed and then she made runs of
them, too, and thus Philadelphia's
tallies exceeded the score of the visit
ing crew.
To tell the truth laborious (al
though the facts be rude) this game
was far from glorious, however it is
viewed. It had few points to fight
about, or cause the ,muse a flight
about, it wasn't much to write about
at least, I thought it crude.
The marvelous delivery of Aleck
or of Shore, could not make me all
shivery or thrill me to the core. The
hits were light and scattering I
longed to hear the battering of Gow
dy's slams ear-shattering and such
like sounds of yore.
That Boston bunch were on their
toes, they" tapped the horsehide on
the nose, but there was no resound
ing whack, no old-time Baker sort -of
crack and as to Phillies' little taps,
their weak and soft and feeble raps
had scarcely steam enough to strain
or dislocate a window pane. Par be
it from this bard to knock such gen
tlemen as Burns and Stock or speak
in anger or in wrath of Paskert, Ban
croft or Cravath or, crossing to the
Boston side, I wouldn't hurt their
beanish pride, by saying aught that I
should not of Hooper, Speaker, Shore
or Scott, or any other two or three
BUT, I must say it seems to me, that
in a series such as this both teams
would find it not amiss, THIS exhi
bition to surpass and show some true
world series class. I'm spoiled by for
mer games, maybe but that's the
way it looks to me!
