THE FARMER: APRIL 10, 1909. F Sports Of A Day -z- Told By The Farmer's Experts "RED" WALLER JUST TOSSED 'EM OVER Near Ball Playing Exhibition at Newfield Park Yesterday. New York Giants' Second Team Gambol About the GreenswardNot Much Chance to Get Line on O'Rourke's New Men. Harmless. Harmless. Bah. Rah. Rah. Bridgeoort.Bridgeport. Bah. Bah. Bab. Gee' but wasn't it cold standing About Newfleld park yesterday In th-se stiff breezes watching some ball play ers and members of the Bridgeport team attempt to toss a sphere about the field. As it was the New York Giantlets (McGraw'. 2nd team) with "Rod" Waller in the box found the local outfit, not even practice for them as none' could hit the ball. Most of the players had on their sweater over coats. Upwards of 1,500 fans shewed their loyalty. The practice before the game by the members of the New York team was even better than the game Itself as the Giantlets did every stunt to keep warm. Manager O'Rourke used three pitch ers. Pollard. Gibbs and McCarthy of which the first appeared to the best advantage. Three catchers were also used. La Vigni. McAloor and Jamleson. Of this trio the latter showed to the bast advantage. He had to go some to hold McCarthy who was very wild. Jamieson is built on the lines of "Dutch" Sherwood, looks like him and plays like him. If he is as good as th3 local lad the fans will have cause for rejoicing. Not much of a line could really be gotten on .the local players. When they struck town .Tghursday afternoon and yesterday morning, a number of the players presented a husky appearance, but Oh! My when thjy appeared on the field. Street at tire is a erreat addition. As for the gam the New Yorks did not exert themselves as the locals could not hit the bail out f the diamond. The visitors started scoring in the second on Meyers' base on balls. Hi'.t'a muffed throw to catch him stealing second, a passed ball and an outneld fly. Two more came In the fourth: Meyers again drew a pass and came home when Simmons hit to deep right center on which that player was caught trying to stretch into a triple on a relay from Ladd to Hilt to Miller. Weimer s narled to left and came home when McAloor threw the ball Into center field to catch him trying to steal second. Gibbs who was on the mound in the sixth was pounded for five hits. Merkle first up singled, stole second and came home on Meyers' tilt to left. Meyers reached second on Hilt's error of Simmons' grounder. Simmons reache'l third on Weimer's two aacksr to risrht field. Weimer scored on Wil son's rap to left. Went to second on the throw in to catch Weimer. reached third on Hilt's error of Waller's eaiy tap and came home on DeVTe's single to left. Total five runs. In the. 7th Fletcher drew a pass, got to second on a wild throw and came home on Simmons single. In the ninth Cocash singled to left field, sti-le Bcmii Merkle srot a base on balls. McCar thy's wild heave advanced them a base each. They could have taken advan tage of another wild pitch by the same player but remained on their bases. While Mac was winding up for the next pitch Cocash started to steal home, wriile Merkle tore in from sec ond past third base and on towards home. Cocash reached the station in safety, with Merkle right after him but the latter was too late. For B: id re port, not a hit was made off Waller till the sixth, when Miller sent a two bagger along the left foul line and came home when Brooks put a Tex .is leaguer over third bnee. In the n nth the Brldserorts started batting out of order, puttlnsr the sore looks on the blink. Hilt singled to left field but was caught between second and thi d. Mil ler rapped a three bagger to the left center fence and scored on Brooks' single to left. Hi Ladd went out on a fly while Teehan was called out by the New Tflk players.

The other Connecticut league teams were successful yesterday: at Hartford the morning- game with Providence w?.a called off but in the afternoon the Senators were tctorious 2-1. In Wa er bury, Tom Dowd's New Iedford' team lost to the Authors 11-4. Teehan. the young man who at tempted to cover first base is about the leanest specimen of humanity seen in baseball around these parts in a num ber of years. The fans have nick named him "Scissors" already. When Artie Romer announced the batfery as Pollardi and La Vinl sime young way yelled out "Hurrah for the wop battery." Have another. Doucette at the bat. Breaths abated. "That's the guy that batted for .460 up in Vermont." "He must have played in the Epworth League." Bourquin handled himself well at second base. He is not small, just medium, but quite chunky. He did not let himself out a bit. being content to just keep warm. Dan O'Neill has suggested to Jim O'Rourke that he try out John Sullivan of Holyoke. Swift chance of Jin O'Rourke trying out any one recom mended by O'Neill. New Haven Pal ladium. Manager Jim might do worse Marty Phelan will not report till next week as he is closing up his business Interests in Poughkeepsie. N. Y where he has been wintering. looks down with pride upon some of its representatives that grace pro fessional baseball. There Is a large number at present from the town who are stars in their own line. The only big leaguer is Tommy Downey, who made the major league in l ist six ye irs of play'ng. Another is Hi Ladd. the man Friday of Uncle Jeems. HI is not remembered by the present generation ln Willimantic but the oldest inhabit ants remember him quite well. POOL TOURNEY AT BRIDGEPORT CLUB The Elues made a practical gain in their lead over the Reds in the pool tournament at the Bridgeport Club yeFterday. they now being 140 points to the good. Yesterday's contests were quite mterest'ner. R. O. Bnntt won his game from George Eaton. 100 to 95; Frank J. Etfgstt won from A. B. Wa d haus. 100 to 76. and H. A. Morse won from Charles H. Botsford. 100 to 94. The latter game took four hours and forty minutes to play. On Monday evening the first of the games in the tournament for the President's cup will be played off between Messrs. Alden and Madigan. It is expected that a nice little fight will be waged in the league for the services of Catcher Beaumont. O'Rourke will not give up the star catcher with out a struggle. "Red" Waller says that he is still in doubt whether he wi'l be a Giant regu lar or not. He thinks however that h i will be retained. The red man nas fattened up a great deal since his last appearance in Bridgeport. Willimantic. though it does not boast of a great baseball team at present Attention: Amateurs !

ANT YOUNG RUNNER WHO WANTS TO MAKE HIS DEBUT IN LONG DISTANCE RACING CAN ENTER 15 MILE AMATEUR EVENT. . Any of the young athletes who are runners and who desire to make their first appearance in a long distance contest should not fail to enter the 15 mile amateur race which is to be a preliminary to the professi6nal race at the Park City rink next Wednesday night. Dorando. the champion long distance runner of Italy, who lost the Olympian Marathon to Johnny Hayes by a hair, will appear in the profes sional race against two crack profes sionals. Seats will 'be arranged about the track to accommodate 2,500 people and a band of music will play stirring airs during the races. The prizes of fered in the amateur contest are four handsome loving cups. Fully 1,000 Italian citizens will be present to shout for Dorando. but if Bob Hallen and Mike Spring come here there is a possibility that these two crack runners, each running half of the distance against him, may be alble to defeat the little Italian chap as they am Jonnny Hayes at New Haven on March 6. If Spring- and Hafllep cannot be matched another pair of crack runners will be. A delegation of Italian citi zens went to New Tork today to make the match and incidentally to let Matt Maloney, who finished fourth at the New Tork Derby, know that there was a chance for him to meet the Italian champion in this city if he cared to run. It is not believed that a match can be made for Maloney, because of other races he has signed for. Bridgeporters who have never exper ienced the thrills of a long distance running match with a cheering crowd present and a band of music to en liven the event, should not fail to see this one. John L. Sullivan was never a more popular idol with the Ameri can boys than Dorando is with the en thusiastic sons of Sunny Italy. The D. M. Read Co. Established S57.
