Father New Umpiring Here Training
Him for a Baseball
Umpire Keefe who is officiating in
the present baseball series, has a
young son by the name of Paul Fran
cis Keefe, who indeed a baseball
wonder and promises to some day de
velop into a horsehide artist that will
attract attention. He is but 5 years
old. but he understands the game thor
oughly. He takes his place in the box
like a veteran and can wind up and
shoot the ball over with speed that
would put to shame many a lad of
three times his age. He is good also
with the stick and never fails to land
on a e;eod one. Umpire Keefe is train
ing the young man for exhibitions, and
it is prebable that he will show the
tri-city baseball fans a little of his tal
ent. His unique appearance, dressed
as he is in umpire blue and his enthu
siastic rooting at the games makes a
hit wherever he goes.
Umpire John P. Keefs. who has been
signed by President Holland for the
remainder of the season, is a veteran
of baseball, having officiated in leagues
throughout the country for 1G years.
He comes from the Western league
here, and officiated when President M.
H. Sexton was at the head of that
league. He has also officiated in the
Inter-State, Southern, and the New
York State leagues.
