Pinch Hitting for Sain Kagan
If old Jupiter Pluvius will leave Robert Strange Dali
yard be for a few more nights the city softball situation
can be cleared up. Rain and tie tilts have wrought havoc
with the Independent league’s schedule.
The Spofford Spinners, with a murderous row of five
.400 hitters, have wrought destruction to the Commercial
aggregation. Champs by a walk-away in the first half,
the Spinners have won 11, lost one, tied one in the second
half. If they take the Boys’ Brigade tonight they can get
their uniforms pressed, lay in a stock of balls and bats and
paw the ground for the opening of the city championship
series. * ~
Tighter Race
In ine Independent league the
race is a fraction tighter. Wert
heimer’s Bagmakers, the heaviest
hitting softball team in Wilming
ton! are in front with 10 wins, two
defeats. If they take the Creosoters
tonight they take the second half.
... or do they? They’ve gat a 2
to 2 tie with Ethyl-Dow to play
off and two rained out games, one
with the Builders, the other with
the Chemists.
But the Godwin Builders, with
five wins, six losses, have the
following games backed up
A 9 in 5 tie with Ethvl-Dow, aVi
B to 8 deadlock with the same ten,
and a r^ined-out game with the
Bag company and another with
Taylor-Coltjuitt. If they can win
them all and the Bagmen stumble
enough. . . Who can tell?
Even Ethyl-Dow has a chance.
It has that game with the Eyemen
tonight, the two tie games with
the Builders, another tied affair
with the Bagmen, and a rained
out contest with the same.
If City Optical loses to Dow to
night, count ’em out. They have
two washed-out games with Taylor
Colquitt, but too many miracles
must- come to pass before they’d
have a chance.
Taylor-Colquitt, with two rained
out games with the Eyemen, an
other with the Builders, is in the
SCtliiC UUCU. i — -o
them out. But should they worry?
They took the first half, won the
city championship and Foy, Roe
trophy last year. Watch them in
the the Independent loop champion
ship series.
The Managers
The men behind Wilmington soft
ball, the real backbone of the ten
clubs making up the Commercial
and Independent leagues, are its
managers. They are he unsung he
roes of sport. They make the rules,
fight for their men and their spon
sors, and get nothing out of it but
a grand headache. If they are los
ing games their’s is a wow of a
headache. If they are winning, its
worse. But like others who are
connected with the game, they
happen to love it.
Softball is a disease. It gets into
them and they are hooked. They'U
cuss the game, the umpires, any
body who’ll even mention “soft
ball” to them, then end up talking
for hours about it. On their off
nights, they’ll be out to the games.
Usually they’re the last to leave.
And when the season’s over they
swear off. “No more softball for
me,” they’ll say. But by the time
the cold January winds are upon
the land, those very same mana
gers are working like Turks to
gets their teams together, making
plans to give Wilmington the finest
brand of softball in eastern North
Carolina.
And pretty soon the old headache
will be back, a headache those
guys can take—and like. 4

11 - INNING TILT
ENDS AT 5 TO 4
Off-Again-On-Again Giants
Win Game On Mickey
Witek’s Single
CINCINNATI, Aug. 21.—(M—The
Dff-again, on-again New York
Giants, who seem to function best
with a patched-up lineup, beat the
league leading Cincinnati Reds 5-4
in an 11-inning struggle today.
The victory came on Mickey
Witek’s rousing single that sent
Gaptain Mel Ott scampering home
from second base. That stretched
the young infielder’s batting streak
through 12 games and gave the
Giants the series over the Reds
two games to one.
The Giants opened the eleventh
with Harry Danning’s single, but
tie was forced by Ott, on an at
tempted bunt. Ott however, stole
second—his third theft of the
series — and then registered on
Week’s timely blow.
The Reds got away to a 2-0 lead,
only to have the Giants knot the
count in their half of the seventh
by getting two runs off three of
the 11 hits they managed all after
noon. However, the Reds climbed
right back into the van when Bill
Werber smashed out a homerun
with a mate aboard.

Ray Mack, LouBoudreau LEONARD BLANKS
Lead Indians To Victory ST. LOUIS, 3 -1
Snatch Tilt From Kea sox
4-2; Mel Harder Comes
Through In Pinches
BOSTON, Aug. 21.—UP)—Snappy
hitting and fielding by Ray Mack
and Lou Boudreau, Cleveland’s
young second-base combination, and
Mel Harder’s effective hurling in
the clinches gave the American
league leaders a 4-to-2 decision to
day over the Boston Red Sox.
The victory stretched to five and
a half games the Indians’ margin
over the second-place Detroit Tigers,
who lost to the New York Yankees.
Mack’s two-run homer in the sec
ond inning sent the Indians into a
lead that never was headed, and
Boudreau drove in one of their other
two runs. The youngsters also broke
up attempted Red Sox rallies by
participating in three double plays.
