Delaware Ave. "BRACKY"TAKES | TEAM OFF FIELD Refused to Play With Lop sided Ball; Game Was Tie, According to Ump At a recent basaball game a fan remarked, "you never seq 'Brackey' real mad In a game." That fan should have been at Parkesburg last evening. Was Johnny Brackenridge mad? He was boiling all over and according to reports from several local fans who witnessed the game at Parkesburg he had a right to be. The Klein Chocolate team manager took his team from the field in the seventh inning when the umpire in sisted that a lopsided ball, with a ripped cover should be kept in the game. The contest ended right there -with the score 3 to 3. It was the third game in the series between Klein and Parkesburg. In the eighth inning Parkesburg had one man in, two on bases and were two runs behind Klein when a dis pute arose over a batt which Catcher Trout wanted tossed out of the game by Umpire Rusey, but which the latter refused to do. Trout then got | the disputed ball in his possession and threw it over the fence. When the ball disappeared the two Parkesburg base runners started a canter to the plate and crossed the rubber, ticing the score. When Umpire Rusey allowed these runs the Klein team left the field and refused to come back, although Manager Si Pauxtis, of Parkesburg, agreed to send back the man who was on first base at the time, but insisted that the runner who was on third be allowed to score. Manager John Brackenridge of the Kleins, would not consent to this and refus -1 ed to allow his team to again take I the field. After waiting the custo mary time for the Kleins to reap [ pear Umpire Rusey declared the game forfeited to Parkesburg. The discussion broke 'up what had been a most hotly played series this year, for following the unpleas ant ending of the game, Owner Hor ace A. Bcale, of the Parkesburg club, announced that he had sev eral further games with the Eliza bethville club. Each club had won a game from the other prior to yesterday's game. In the game Klein rapped Sterl ing hard at times, hut brilliant sup port carried the local pitcher over many tight places. Decatur pitched good ball and had the locals blank ed until the eighth when the trouble broke out. PARKESBURG R. H. O. A. E.
