Showing Up In Great Shape
And lias Made Good Willi
Among tho baseball players that
havo been produced by Mt. Vernon
and who aro making good in fast
company Is "Hub" Bendel, who for
several years previous has been play
ing the game in and near this city.
At the beginning of this season, ho
signed a contract with the Middle
town, Ohio, team which Is in the K.
O. I. Leaguo and from the start of tho
practlco has been steadily improving
at the game and has developed great
speed. Sunday the Middletown team
played a garao with tho Diyton Cen
tral league team at Middletown and
won it by tho scoro of G to 1. This
Is proof that "Hub" Is In fast com
pany hud Is necessarily playing fast
clean ball. In Sunday'a game, he was
responslblo for two out of tho six runs
which wero scored by his team. It
was with two men out that ho camo
to bat and with one strike called on
him, laid down a pcifect bunt which
bothered tho Dayton players to such
a degree that two men scored and ho
landed safely on first. - Ho Is called
tho "barber" by tho fans who think
very favorably of him. In another
clipping hom a paper, a statement is
made that Bendel is shaving up In
first-class manner and will very like
ly bo ono pf the pleasant surprises
of tho Middletown team for tho sea
son. "Hub" has been playing at the
position of shortstop thus far this
season, but ho Is not only good thcro
but Is a sensational fielder, being
capable of covering a largo amount of
territory and covering It well. In re
gard to tho speed which ho has de
veloped, a letter tecelved by his broth
or states that ho can cover 100
yards in ten seconds flat. That is
