BRITTSEN PIE FOR LOCALS
Retires in Eighth Inning, Caffryn Fin
ishing the Game Christy Wilson
Pitches Heady Ball.
Rock Island farewclled to the home
fans with a victory over Springfield
in the closing game of the season at
the Twelfth street grounds yester
Bill Brittsen, the big boguni of the
Senators' shooting, staff, had been
smarting under the defeat that he re
ceived after 10 innings of strenuous
effort Labor day morning when he had
for his adversary Christy Wilson, the
fair haired youngster that Rock Isl
and lias chosen from the local ama
teur ranks and attached to its string
for next season.
That was Christy's debut in profes
sional company. Brittsen has be n
playing the game for some seasons,
and he Vanted an opportunity to show
up the boy that seemed to have about
everything the veteran displayed on
thai occasion, and then some to spare.
Brit sen's turn came yesterday. lie
lasted seven innings.
llrlftMt-n Drtti-n to Itlnnkrt.
He was driven to his blanket. How
ever, the fault was not entirly his, as
his team gave him wretched support.
'Wilson pitched his nine innings
through, winning his game by a score
of ft to 2. Wilson was as steady as
an x-day timepiece until the eighth in
ning, then he issued his first compli
mentary. Two more were walked in
the ninth, but scoring was prevented.
The youngster also got a hit. He held
the leaders to seven hits.
Seeing that there was not a ghost
of a show. Donnelly's team went to
pieces after Brittsen had been sent
to the bench in the eighth. Caffryn
was called in from left to finish out the
game on the gunner's line, having
Taffe for his backstop, Latimer going
to right, and Smith moving over to
left. Four tallies were pulled out in
this inning by Rock Islantl on a double
in left by Vandine the one that proved
the undoing of Brittsen that Caffryn
mad" a hard chase for, and singles
by Wilson and Thornton, a pass to
Carlisle, two balks by Caffryn, a fum
ble by N'eal of Sweeney's grounder and
a wild throw by Taffe to second.
SfnitloM iirt the Klrnt S-nr.
The legislators bunched two hits on
Wilson in the third inning, making the
first score of the game. After two men
were down Lippert cracked in cen
ter for a base, and came the rest of the
circle on Donnelly's two-base drive
in left. Then Neal filed to Annis.
Rock Island had two men on bases in
the second. Vandine. whose hitting was
a feature of the exhibition, smeared for
a pair of stations, and Sweeney sur
vived on Neal's first offense, but there
was no scoring. Hupp flying to Ebright,
Carlisle missing the third strike and
Cheek pushing easy to Brittsen.
Brittsen fanned Wilson and Lister
in the third. Thornton retiring on a
grounder to second, but the color of his
goods was discovered with a Fourth of
July relish in the next session, Annis
leading off with a baser in left and
Vandine sending a greens shaver in
Throw null Into the Field.
When Hupp grounded to Brittsen
Kbright played in behind Lippert, who
had moved up to corrall a bunt, and
was on the first bag. Brittsen tossed
the ball to him. but Ebright. appar
ently thinking that Lippert was ex
pecting to get the putout. backed away,
and the ball rolled over toward the
bleachers. Anuis scoring.
There was no one out and Sweeney
moved into the limelight, connecting
for a sizzler that went out of reach of
Donnelly in center, driving home Van
dine and Hupp. Sweeney tried to
stretch the hit into a triple and might
have gotten away with it but for the
fact that he is crippled, which iwter-

ROCKFORD IS WARMING UP
Association to be Reorganized With
Rockford Star: The present man
agement of the Rockford baseball as
sociation met yesterday afternoon and
had with them "Rusty" Owens. In
the course of the afternoon an agree
ment was reached whereby the for
mer Red Sox pitcher is to take the
management of the Rockford tear
At the meeting plans were also made
for the coming year that will make it
almost positive that the Rockford ag
gregation will be one of the best in
the circuit, and that the enthusiasm of
the local fans which has been at a
low ebb the greater part cf the 6ea-,
son w.ll be rekindled and Rockford.
besides being the top one in the per
centage column, will also be credited
with being right at the top of the list
in the matter of attendance and the
complaints of some of the other teams
which during the past year have been
partially justifiable will be removed.
The plan outlined and which will be
carried out is to make the association
a stock company having no limit to
I the number who may b members.
Shares will be placed at $10 each and
half shares will be sold. Five hun
dred stockholders is the least the as
sociation believes it can get. and this
insures the personal work of 500 peo
ple, and will make it almost certain
they will be at the games whenever
the team is at home. The stockholders
will be called togetner and will select
tha officers. There will be no high and
fancy prices paid for the work that Is
to be done, and every one will be ex
pected to work for the interest of the
club. In this manner it is certain base
ball can be made to pay here, and that
the team w'll be given loyal support
both as rooters and in percentage.
Owens is one of the best known ball
players in the Three-Eye circuit, and
in Rockford is one of the favorites of
the fans. He is a good man with his
head and as a manager it is thought
he will make good, in that all the play
ers will like him. he will be a good
disciplinarian, and still not hold him
self above his players except when it
comes to a place where authority is
"Rusty" left last evening for Du
buque, and will return here early next
week when he will begin the prelimi
nary work, signing the players now
on the team and getting the stock sul
scribed. This work is intended to
be done before the next annual meet
ing and it is the desire of the manage
ment to have everything in such shape
that when the representatives go to the
meeting, affairs will be so arranged
thnt it will bo proof positive to the
oilier teams that what has been plan
ned can be carried out. Rockford has
never cost the league mnnagement
any worry in the way of finances to
carry out its contracts, ami the next
year there will be no kicking from the
other cities on account of lack of in
terest. DUST FROM DIAMOND.

and he had the advantage of marvel

was separated from his wind and was

little fellow turned in and finished the

pain for a time.
Umpire Jto Loberk did not show
up at iJie park. Th re was no explan
ation from him or from President Hol

nigbt. Probably he has been called
in to officiate at the BloominKton-De-catur
series. Peters was driven off th

pletely off his feet by the floral tes
timonial from his admirers at the park
yesterday afternoon. He said he
would rather have received this mani
Testation of appreciation than a $.",0
note. The flowers, which were made
into a magnificent horseshoe, were ex
pressed by Nic to his wife at Rock
ford. Nicol has won a firm place in
the hearts of the fans here. He Utol
the team when It was on the toboggan
not because of lack of material, but
owing to absence of generalship. Nic
is a baseball diplomat. His tact, dis
cipline, management, judgment and
generalship in the handling of the play
ers has made Rock Island one of the
fastest teams in the league. He has
accomplished this without nagging or
causing hard feelings among the men.
On the contrary, there is less friction
on the team today than there has been
at any time during the season. The
boys all respect Nic's orders. They
know he understands the game bettor
.than they do. They all like him. They
will work for him.
