winding up. O'Neill made ready for a
terrific swing. And as he swung at
the hall the hat slipped from his grasp
and sailed directly toward Third Base
man Roy Young of the Moose team.
Young was unable to dodge it, and
was hit squarely in the month. He
was knocked to the floor, but. immedi
ately sprang to his feet, and was
ready to proceed with the game. His
teammates called a halt, and when an
examination was made found that
Young had lost two teeth and that the
upper lip was split to the gums. He was
taken to the police station and later
to the office of a physician. It was
necessary to take seven stitches in the
upper lip and four in the lower. Young
displayed great pluck throughout the
ordeal, refusing to take an anaesthetic.
He was ready to return to the game,
but it was decided to postpone the con
test till next week. At the time of tne
accident the Moose team had 7 scores
against 2 for their opponents.
