Abbeville won the first game of
the series with Greenwood Thursday
on the local diamond by the score of
6 to 5. Allen did the hurling for
Abbeville while Ethridge carried the
burden for Greenwood. Allen, Ab
beville's star hurler, was touched for
but six hits and was steady in the
pinches. Ethridge was hit rather
freely although he pitched a good
;ame. He got one hit off Allen which
ft-as good for three bases, the only
;riple of the game.
Bradley for Greenwood in left
ield made several pretty catches, one
n particular. Monroe for Green
vood also did fine fielding.
Rain halted the game for twenty
ninutes at the beginning of the
ifth inning, but play was resumed
ind the game continued without in
;erruption until Umpire Owings
nade a rotten decision on a play at
lome plate. Then came a swarm
)f mad fans on the diamond, and the
:orce had to be used to keep some
:rom the umpire. This was soon
:leared up and play was again re

BASE HITS AND FOULS.
The day before the first game the
Jreenwood-Index put it, "On to
Lbbeville," but it seems that Abbe
ille was "on to Greenwood" in that
A good many fans thought the r|
narks of His Umps Owings to pitch
ir Allen about looking at him were
intirely out of place. We think tne
Jmps was right. If we looked like
iiin we wouldn't want anybody to
ook at us either.
Pitcher Allen is the boy with the
foods. All the other teams know
his. The game he pitched against
Anderson Monday was the finest ex
libition of fine pitching shown here
;his year. He did his part to win
:he game, and several times the win
ding run should have been brought
Kennedy is a promising young
pitcher. He is not old enough to play
in a league with so many seasoned
pitchers. But notwithstanding his
youth, he has done good work for
Abbeville. Barring hard luck and a
lack of proper support at times he
OF OLD YESTEROA1
would have won more games. Nc
body except a man with the neces
sary courage and pluck would hav
worked so consistently every time h
has been called on. He should mak
a star in the intercollegiate game
Jim McMillan has been walkin]
ever since the Carolina League open
ed. If it ran another sixty days h
would have walked half around th
globe in distance, and cleared th
switch for the other half.
There are but two real basebal
players in the world. They are T;
Cobb and Bruce Galloway. Of cours*
Babe Ruth and a few others thinl
they are players, but they do no
rank with Ty and they will not rani
with Bruce when he goes up to thi
big leagues. His fielding and hittinj
are fine and when he learns to rui
a little better there is nothing tha
will stop him.

The Galloway boys were hittinj
them out yesterday. Chick hit safel;
four times out of four, Bruce threi
out of four, and Eugene two out o

was played for the fun of the play

fans. It always happened on Satur

Sometimes nobody was present ex
cept the members of the home am
the visiting teams. They did not nee<
an "empire" then. There were n
strikes unless the ball was struck al
and everybody knew when he wa

with spikes either. Everybody tool
off their shoes in order to play. Som
