Over Center Field Wall In Game
WALTER JOHNSON SLAMS
TWO HOMERS OVER WALL
AND GEORGIANS WONDER
AUGUSTA, Ga., April 1. Twice yesterday on Warren Park dia
mond, Walter Johnson, premier pitcher of the American League,
demonstrated his ability in wielding the willow stock when he slammed
the horsehide over the center field fence, duplicating a feat that has
been accomplished but once before, by1 John Hummel, former member
of the Brooklyn Nationals.
Johnson knocked the ball over the fence once in the morning prac
tice game, cleaning the bases, and winning the game for the Yanni
gans, and again in the afternoon poled the ball over for a home run
and a tie for the Yannigans. Both drives were accomplished in the
seventh innings of the respective games. The distance from home
plate to center field fence is 125 yards, while tl.e fence itself is at least
eight feet in height.
Scores of ball players, many of
them sluggers. Including: Ty Cobb, Flaherty weakened and let the Yan

The number of hits is a fair indi

FOR PENN CONIESI
Central is trying to land a big game
with the Penn Freshmen for April

f A. Metzlcr will take his charges to
Philadelphia with every idea of com
ing through to a victory.
"I am expecting to hear from the
Penn men any time now," says Metz
ler. If we land the game it will
make up for any short trip that we
may get around here. I think we
can do well enough against the
I'reshmen to warrant the trip."
Several years ago games between

that Washington fans will get a
