Texan Starts Trouble
At Kiotras (;hhh? lU'tween National
Champions and Smart Sets and
<fjants, Facing Mdlrllan, in
l^nth Inning Ix'avo Field and Arc
Almost Mobbed by Anyy Crowd.
PaterscM. N. J.. May 29. ? What tne
people of Paterson, black and white,
variously charge up to the Xew York
Giants as a plain quit and exhibiting
a sXreaU of yellow, came out of the
jTT. a 1 ?,?r. , r\ .. *
game here last Sunday when the New
Yoi k Nationals, the champions of the
National League, left the field when
the score was tied in the tenth in
ning. The champions professed to
have a big surprise when they arrived
here today, and found that they were
scheduled to play a team of colored
players, called the Smart Sets, instead
of the regular Paterson team. Afrer
a long wi angle the New Yorks con
sented to play and not disappoint the
big crowd of 8,000 people.
The game broke up in the tenth
inning, when tho Ciants left the field.
They were hurried to a buss and were
taken to their hotel, but not. uutil
they had been surrounded by a mob
and were the targets for sticks and
stones, which were so poorly aimed
that they did no damage to the New
York playeis. The score was tied at
:? to when the trouble occurred.
Texas Leaguer Starts Trouble.
When the game was scheduled at
Olympic Park here, the New Yorki
did not know that they were to play
a team of colored men. The squad
was in charge of Coach Robinson and
included several substitutes. The only
pitcher taken alcug was Louis Drucke,
who comes from Texas. / Drucke flatly
refused to play against th^ colored
team. All sorts of arguments were
brought to b?ar and Drucke finally
! consented to pitch if he was an
nounced as "Pitcher O'Brien" instead
of Drucke.
The (riant-* line-up was; Groh. De
vore, Hums, McCormick, Fletcher,
Snodgrass, Murray, Hartley* and
Drucke, The first bit of trouble
cropped out in the seventh in?ning
when Harry McCormick was at the
bat. He had an argument with Um
pire Warner and threw down his bat.
The umpire threw off his mask and
the player and official clashed. Fletch
er jumped between thein before any
damage was done. The umpire or
dered McCormick out of the game,
; but the player refused to go. Chief
of Police Coughlan appeared and
I ,
threatened to arrest McCormick if
t';;"if was any more trouble.
The game proceeded" again, and ta
tjie 'ighth inning the Giants tied the
score, the tally then being 3 to 3.
Neither t"am scored in the ninth.
In the last of the ninth I'mpire
Warner handed Drucke a new ball,
and 'lie pitcher picked up some dirt
and 1)< gan to rub it over the ball.
'I'iie players of the Smart Set team
obj ft er| t K'.td the umpire took the
ball and gave Drucke another new
oti". He had to pitch the ball only
one* in the la^t inning, when tbe side
was retired.
<^uit H'lien Score \Vn? Tied.
I When the Giant* came to bat in the
Money Loaned on
Jewelry and
Clothing
605 Kanawha St;
fust of (he tenth, Pitcher McClellan
of ihe Smart Set refUsed to pitch with
the new ball which Jbrueke had used
in the previous innhig, and he sub
stituted an old ball for ihe new one.
Fletcher and Snodgrass saw him do
it -and lan out. to. make. a protest.
Umpire Warner did not compel Mc
CJellan to use the new ball before the
Giants walked off the field.
The crowd became excited right
away and wanted the gam.e to pro
ceed. The Giants pushed their way
through the crowd and piled into the
bus which was waiting for them. It
was soon surrounded by a shouting
mob of excited fans. There w*ere no
laige stones handy, but several sticks
and pebbles were thrown at the New
York players. Chief Coughlan then
came to the rescue and persuaded the
crowd to desist throwing missiles at
the Giants so the 'bus was allowed to
proceed to the hotel near the railroad
stat ion.
A \ large crowd waited around the
sjation and hooted the Giant players
while they were waiting for a train
to take them back to New York.
The score of the game by innings
