UNIVERSITY MISSOUBIAN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1908.
Winscott, Now on Missourian,
Was Major League Star
UNDER "DER BOSS PRESIDENT"
PLAYER ON VON DER AHE'S TEAM:
NOW UMPIRE OF VARSITY GAMES
Now He is Crack Umpire,'and
Presides Over Rollins
A. J. Winscott, the man who "'makes
tip" the University Missourian, was a
&tar baseball player on the St. Louis
Browns in the days when Chris von der
AIic, "Der Bos president," owned the
team. He played first base.
Win-eott lias given up the game and
is now a printer. Incidentally, he is a
baseball umpire and the "University has
often called on him to "handle the in
dictor," as the sporting writers say, at
the 'Varsity games on Rollins Field.
He has been an umpire also in the
Southern and Texas leagues.
"Rooter" for Tigers.
"Winscott the boys at the print shop
call him "Andy" or "A. J." is a thirty
third degree baseball fan and knows the
game from all its angles, lie is one of
the most enthusiastic "rooters" for the
baseball Tigers and promises to help
. coacn tne team next spring, it ne uoesn t
go on the road as an umpire in one
of the professional leagues. "Andy" is
a quiet-mannered man and never loses
"The great popularity of baseball is
due to the fact that it is above sus
picion," said he to a reporter for the
University Missourian. "Honesty is the
great bulwark of the game and all
transactions of a questionable character
are condemned by club owners, players
and spectators. The excitement incident
to a baseball game is wholesome. It
takes men and women from the daily
grind and gives them added zest for the
more serious occupations of life. The
whole nation is interested in baseball
and I believe it is better off for it. The
moral tone1 of baseball has been graatly
elevated in recent years, and I believe
the college players were quite a factor
in accomplishing this result. In mor
ality, sobriety and honor the baseball
player of today will average up with
the members of any other calling.
"This has been the most remarkable
season that I have known. The finish
in all the leagues has been the closest
in history. In the National league,
Chicago won in a hair-raising finish.
In the American league, Detroit finished
first with Cleveland and Chicago close
behind. The championship in the
Southern league was decided in the last
gaae between New Orleans and Nash
ville. New Orleans won by a shut-out.
Sioux City won the Western league
pennant in the last game with Omaha
on a home run. The Eastern league
victory went to Baltimore in its last
series with Providence. In the Connec
ticut league, Springfield beat Hartford
by five points."
More Interest in Football.
Asked what he thought of the Tiger
baseball team, he said: The only
trouble with the University team is
that it doesn't get enough ginger in its
- play. The students put all their inter
est in football and don't give baseball
the proper support. That's why the
boys don't work up a faster team.
"Umpiring is a tough job. If the
unpire once loses his temper his power
isNcone. When he makes a decision he
mtt stick to it and he has to make his
decisions pretty quick.
"I seldom have trouble with the
players. If they get sullen I talk to
them straight and Fve had to put only
two 11en wjt of iie game. The um
pire has everybody against iim the
players, the grandstand and the bleach- j
"Fans" Like Fair Decision.
"The fans in the bleachers hoot and
howl, but their bark is worse than their
bite because they like a fair decision
as much as anyone else although, of
course, they'd rather have it in lavor
of their home team.
"How do I keep my temper! Well,
I don't know. If something happens
that I don't like I just grin and bear
it. I make it a point to say some
thing good about people or nothing at
all. I never allow the players to curse
me and I never swear myself. This
getting angry is a strange thing and 1
guess the only thing to do when in
clined to become so is just don't."

though many say that a knock is a
boost, which is not good logic. If you're
an advocate of Honesty in Advertising
and a 'square deal' for your fellow man,
you'll take your membership out of the
'Knockers Club' and join the St. Louis
Advertising Men's League. The mental
exercise you get with this organization
is just as exhilcrant and needful as the
physical exercise that comes from play,
fun and sport."
