Rock Island Barnstormers Blank
Independent Team at
TH0RHT0H IN PITCHER'S BOX
la Last Inning Calls Men In From
Field and Fans Third
A new twirter for Rock Island was
discovered at Savanna yesterday in
the game played by a barnstorming
team made up from the players here
with the Independents of that city.
Rock Island won 2 to 0.
Ross Thornton, the brilliant center
fielder and manager of Rock Island,
for the first time this season tried his
hand on the pitching slab, and if the
performance he furnished is a fair
sample of what be is able to do it
would not be a bad idea for him to
call on himself during emergencies the
remainder of the season when the reg
ular members of his pitching Ftaff take
to the balloon route.
Thornton held the team to four hits.
He was pitied against Seeley. a lanky
fellow who played for a time at the
beginning of the season with Spring
field. Eight hits were gotten off See
ley. Three of there were made by
MeDonough, who was catching Thorn
ton. Thornton Shows Hit r.
In the ninth Inning, when two were
down, Thornton summoned his team
mates from the lield ami fanned the
third man without a supporter be
hind him. This was a chance few
pitchers would have the nerve to take.
especially with the score so close, as
any kind of a respectable hit would
have been kmxI for a home run.
It was raining when the team
reac hed Savanna, but it cleared before
the game, and there was a good sized
crowd out to see it. Most of them
were the friends of Pete Lister, as
Savanna is where Pete discarded his

the evening train over the Burlington

The feat of putting a ball out ol

down as an unique one in the batting
record of the mighty Napo.con Lajoie
It happened during a game in Cincin

says: Larry Iijoie. the terrific bat
ter witn tne Philadelphia team, hit a
ball so hard in Monday's game that
he actually broke it. It was the third
inning. lajoie straightened out or
the first ball pitched. He met it
squarely and pushed his weight
against it. The hall went at a terrifb
rate of speed and struck the centet
field fence near the top with a re
sounding whack. The ball caromed ofl
the fence, ami before Elmer Smitl
could field it Lajoie was on third. Thi
ball was thrown to Umpire Burns for
Inspection. He examined it and threw
the ball out of the game. The awful
jolt that Lajoie gave it broke the rub
ber on the inside. It was knocked lop
sided and was no longer fit for play."
Jack Olasscock. the great short st 01
of basehalldom, who was a candidate
a year or two age) for manager of tht
Rock Island team, is pronounced by
many men who have played against
him to be the meanest man that ever
played the game. "They can all com
and go." said Jimmy McAleer. in a fan
ning bee, "but I don't think the game
will ever see another player -in cer
tain ways like John Olasscock. He
was. distinctively, one of the oddest
characters who ever played around a
diamond, and the duplicate of Pebbly
Jack has yet to show. Glasscock was
a great shortstop, a good batter and
the meanest player who ever wore the
spikes. He wanted to win so bad that
he would do anything to stop the op
position. Some of his tricks wen
lalapaloozas. If the umpire was look
ing the other way. he'd throw a hand
ftil of sand in your eyes. If you sllii
into the base, it was right into his
spikes, block! ag off the bag like a barb
wire fence. When he shoved the ball
against you. it was for business pur
poses and you knew all about it. But
the tricks he was best in were tricks
that were almost iniossible to see.
As you turned the base he would wan
der accidentally across your path and
you would instinctively slow up to
avoid a collision. The fraction of a
second thus lost generally meant a
putout at the next station. If you
went on ahead he would take a pinch
at your trousers as you panned That
little nip would throw you off vour
stride and unbalance you to such an
extent that you would fall an easj
victim to the man at the next stand,
who Would be waiting with the hall."
