Funny Stunt to Watch Him
Chase Balls in Tight
(By Lee Hamilton")
It's a funn stunt to -natch Frank
Earbuck parading about Washington
park in a baseball uniform -working
011t or attempting to work out with
bis Huskies. That's what he's been
doing ever since the team was pulled '
together, but his stunts at practice
have to be seen to be appreciated.
Frank doesn't deign to pull off this
matinee when the grandstand's filled
and everybody's -waiting for the call of
play. Ah, no. He keeps discreetly on
th coaching lines or rests serenel un- '
derneath the canvas toppHl plaers ,
tench. But take a run out there some
da -when the boys are at practice.
"When Eli Cates appeared a few times
in this league, everyone gave lum the
plum as champion heavyweight of the t
whole circuit. But Harbuct could ge
him about 50 pounds and then beat him j
His uniform is so tight that one hoi !; (
nis oreatn every time vtsjik. iwhus

er His cap had to be ripped before he
could put it on. His figure as a plav
er is comical enough, but his antics are
that and then some.
Ought to have seen him iry to hold
down Carl Earthman's job at second
-vesterday. He got one fly ball, then
started going after grounders. For the
firt one he made a dive that came
within 'an ace of scraping off an ear.
On the second he went after one right
over -the bag. He struck the sack with
hisfeet, turned as pretty a somersault
a; you conld wish for. Tolled 20 feet,
oier and over, and came up smiling,
holding a ro4c in his glove for the ball.
The Matter wa making a little excur
s on into the "weeds in center field.
Vt bat he did lam out a couple, but
Grav, who was lobbing them over, didn't
dare p"ut them within three feet of the
pan for fear of landing on his boss.
Although Frank is kidded a whole lot.
he keeps up the stunt, and has hopes
of reducing flesh a few pounds a day,
If nothing more.
