The Championship Settled and Fur
man Shut Out by a Score of 2 to 0.
Newberry lovers of baseball sel
dom saw a finer game than that play
ed at the col'ege park on Tuesday
afternoon between Newberry and
Furman. Heavy rain clouds hanging
round kept many away, but the
crowd was enormous notwith;tand
ing. The grand stand was filled with
ladies and girls, while many had to
stand. Hundreds of men crowded
as close as they could get to the lines.
Of course all were anxious tc see
Newberry win, and win they did with
honor to themselves, the college and
the town. To those who know the
reputation of the team at home and
abroad it is not necesary to say that
they played clean ball from start to
finish, and the same thing can be said
of Furman's team, with the ex
ception of the unfortunate lapse of
one of its players in the last inning.
Cabaniss and Simpson were at
their best, thoroughly understood
each other, in every movement
showed their confidence, and played
great ball. The whole team gave
them perfect support and played
without an error. So perfect was
Newberry's playing that Furman got
only three men safe to first. Two of
them died there without having a
chance to try for second, the other
tried for second but was caught.
The story of the game will be best
told in detail. Newberry came to the
bat in the first inning. Cabaniss lead
ing off with a hit to first base'. Rice
fielded it fineiy, and though the de
cision was veiy close, the runner was
clearly ou:. Olney struck out, Hol
Ioway' knocked the ball to Rice, who
was waiting for it and the runner
failed to reaci first.
For Furman Campbell led off with
a fly to Owen, who gathered him in,
Dunn grounded to Holloway and
was thrown 3ut. Rice tried Owen
with a fly to see if he could do the
sanc :hing twice in one inning and
found that he could.
In the second inning Simpson
drove the ball to Lanford and was
thrown out at first: Crouch made a
clean hit over the head of Dvn, who
made a desperate effort to reach it
but failed: Boozer made a hit for one
hag, but Scarborough threw the ball
to the pitcher instead of to second
and Boozer and Crouch watching the
ball each moved up; Taylor struck~
out: Shealy 'ait the ball to second
and was thrown out at tfirst, leaving
Boozer and Crouch disappointed.
Furman came up with Swink. who
bunted the ball. Simpson sent it tc
irst and almost got him, but he was
safe. The crowd began to get a
little uneasy. with a man at first and
no hands down, but Lanford soon re
lieved the tension by sending up a
foul fly, that Cabaniss got by a fine
run. Richardson struck out and
Scarborough sent Owen another fly.
In the third Owen led with a fine
ly between centre and right, and it
looked as if he had made a hit. but
after passing second the ball made
an upward turn, and Richardson by
a splendid sprint scooped it. .Caba
niss gave Dunn a fly: then Lanford
fell down and gave Olney and Hollo
way their firstoon balls. Furman was
down in the mouth. btut Simpson
consoled them 'by giving Henderson
a lir. Mattisou came up for Furman
and sent a hot grounded to Boozer,
~ho put it hot to first ahead of the
runner. Henderson gave Taylor a
ly and as the boys were missing
nothing on this trip he appropriated
it. Campbell tried Boozer with an
other hot one., that was impossible
to field and the man made his first,
but Dunn promptly strtuck out.
In the fourth inning Newberry
vet out in a hulrry, Crouch giving
Dunn a chance to throw him out at
first: Boozer in the air to Dunn and
Taylor a fly to Rice. Furman
came to the bat and Rice made a fine
hit between third and short stop.
Swink sent a long fly to Taylor. who
got it and Rice was held at first.
Lanford sent a grounder to Owen
red hot. Owen put the ball to second
and caught Rice. Richardson's fly
to Olney settled the inning.
By this time the progress of events
~as becoming monotonous and New
berry came to the bat for the fifth
time determined to do things. Shealy
led off with a ly- to Scarborough. who
m,ffe -i (te fst error in the game,
and a costly one) Owen sacrified
himself and Shealey made second.
Lanf,rd tried to catch him as h
played -ff. but the hall went past
Dunn ani Shealy got to third. Caba
ni.a came .o the .bat andi did some
fnce hiead work. The whole infield
was watching him for a grounder,
but he sent a long fly far out into
center. Richardson got it. but he
was too far from headquarters and
before he coid send the ball home,
Shealy scored. Olney drove the ball
to second and was thrown out. Fur
man came up and Scarborough sent
a g-oanicr to Owen and was thrown
out. Then Smpson got in his work I
in a hurry, retiring Mattison and
Henderson, one, two, three.
For the sixth time Newberry lined
up. Holloway sent a hot one to Rice, 1
but it was not hot enough. Simpson
made a safe hit to right field; Crouch
sent another safe one after Simp
son's. Here was Newberry's chance,
and Boozer accepted it, sacrificing
himself whil, Simpson made third
and Crouch went down to second,
but disappointment came when Tay
lor had the misfortune to strike out
again. Furman came to the line, and
Campbell made a great hit, and many
who saw it involuntarily exclaimed
"That's a hit," but Taylor made a
catch greater than the hit, atoning
for his fa'lure to connect with the
ball a moment before. Dunn sent
Holloway an easy one and was
thrown out. Rice struck out, two
beauties being called on him. Simp
son fooled him.
In the seventh inning, Shealy struck
out: Owen was thrown out by Camp
bell; Cabaniss hit safe to centre, and
%ith the first ball pitched to Olney
stole his second, but Olney failed to
touch the ball. Furman came up
again showing their anxiety and
tried hard, but failed. Swink sent the
ball where Shealey wanted it: Lan
ford drove his to Boozer, an unsafe
place for him for Shealy soon had it;
Richardson tried the outfield but
Crouch was waiting for him and
coolly spoiled his hopes.
In the eighth, Lanford made a
bad break when he gave Holloway his
bases on 'balls: for Simpson made a
bunt sacrifice and let Holloway get
to second. Crouch sent a fly tip in
the air to Campbell who gave him a
glad welcome. Holloway did what
seemed to be impossible, stealing
third in great shape. Hope of in
creasing the score was now centred in
Boozer. who sent the ball to the
short stop, and accomplished the
great feat of beating the sphere to
first, winning loud applause by hip
magnificent sprinting. Fortun,ately,
too, Rice took his foot off the base,
otherwise the decision would have
been so close that few wotild have
blamed the Furmanites for a kick. -
While they were fooling with Boozer
at first Holloway came honie in a
hurry. Boozer stole second. and
Taylor missed the hall. When Fur
man caime up again Scarborough
struck out, Mattison gave Cabaniss
wvha: he likes a foul fly and Hender
son followed Scarborough's exam- .
In the ninth inning Newberry went
down quickly. Shealy to first. Owen
to first and Cabaniss had the strange
experience of striking out.
Furman is up for the last time. The
case is desperate. not only to lose
the championship but to be shut out.
Btut they came to the scratch without
a whimper. Campbell gave Cabaniss -
a fly: Dunn sent a fly to Owen, who
had already more than his sh-are. but
was taking in all that came his way.
Two down and only one more chance,
it is little wonder that the next bat
ter was anxious to save his teami
from the threa:ened disaster. btut no
zeal can excuse his tactics. He hit
the ball, and finally got to first, but]
before reaching it he was out for four1
reasons. In striking the ball he step- -.
ped fully a foot and a half from his
box, and and then instead of running
straight for first he follo~wed the ball
which was moving slowly toward
Simpson. with clear intent to ob
stiuct its fielding. running full fiveI
feet inside the line from home to -
irst, interfering with Cabaniss and]
Simpson who wvere after the ball. ac
tually touching Simpson. and his own
oot being touched by the ball. But
the least said about it perhaps the
better. as we have no doubt that he
regrets now the transaction as much
as anyone. It was an unfortunate
hapning to mar one of the prettiest
;ames tiat has been seen on the local
liamond. a game alike creditable tO
victors and vanlqui-hed.
