THE TIMES PAGE THREE IE ID FIRE BASE BALL fVI The Hammond baseball club's record of one run in eighteen inning's (see ecores of Saturday and Sunday games) has occasioned another shake-up. This time Owner Faul Farduhn lost his patience. He sent Manager Fowler to Indianapolis scouting for new ma terial and tied the official can to Shanno. the chap who took Palmer's place at short but couldn't fill it. And It is reported that the two Thompsons will not be connected with the ball club in the- future. Eddie DeLave. the veteran Hammond pitcher, has been hired together with JJostil of South Chicago who leads the Chicago league in , hitting. Mostil will play second base and DeLae is to pitch Saturday against the Cuban Stars. On Sunday Pete. Henning plays the Mutuals. Joe Kelley of -Roseland Is slated for first base Saturday for a try-out but. it Is stated that will not end the re organizing of the Hammond club. De Lave is to take Forrest Morrow's place as reserve pitcher, it Is claimed, which seems severe In view of the fact that Morrow has a 1,000 per cent record, not having allowed a. hit or walked a man this season. Chuck Eohde's sore arm is said to prevent his playing the usual high class game cf ball and it may cause him to be layed oft. Fans suspicion that Chuck's ' arm is so sore he can't swing a bat and for this season is not hiting as he usually does. Clarence Thompson's fielding is all that could be desired but he has failed to hit this year and Parduhnwants clouters to win hi 3 ball games. With three new Tnen in the game Sun day against the Cuban Stars Parduhn hopes te break the slump which has followed Hammond's sensational win ning streak and to get back into form so as to win the city league pennant and make a good' record on the trip down state. THAT SUNDAY BALL GAME HE'S COPPING HIS TEAMMATE'S STUFF SOMEBODY'S GOING TO GET CLEANED If the clothes of Gary people are not washed properly next week the; don't need to ponder the reason, for Slick's laundry and the Double L wash ers are scheduled to clash on some Gary sand lot next Sunday afternoon. Captain George Slick of the team that bears his name wil throw his arm out of joint working the slab. His op ponent, "dirty clothes rusher," has withheld his name, probably coming out as a dark horse to be cleaned. , HAMMOND one JAKE STAEI3 two. WT'M not hard losers BUT "WE should have never lost THAT game IP it hadn't been for a couple of "LOUSY" errors by Shannon. HAMMOND would have been the win ner. LET the fans Judge for themselves what ought to be done with Shannon. A FEW "stick artists" wouldn't go bad either WE don't need 'em but THEY can't win any old ball game with 5 hits and one run. Ill fact the team has an average of 4 hits per game in the last 5 combats AND the money Parduhn is paying his club THEY ought to get 40. IP they would only give Henning a two or three run lead, Fete would win all the ball games. FOS instance A "speedy runner" like C. Thompson lets his own feet rob him out of two pretty hits. IP somebody could only teach him a little speed, and, to get a hit once In awhile HE'D be a wizzard. WE still claim that Harry Moll is the best third sacker in the league. POOB. catca Knights made in the sixth, eh! SHOULD have had more applause. CHUCK BOHSE'S batting eye was a little bad, MIQHT the Palm Beach suit have some thing to do with it? AUSTIN WALSH come thru with tw;o bingles AND Mokate beat out one and was robbed of two. WETE been wondering what that right fielder had around his neck when he stole a sure two-bagger oft of Mokata PICKETT playing centerfield for the Stahls IS a whale of a ball player AND wouldn't look bad in a local uni form. THEY always say colored people bring good luck BUT it looks as if they put a jinx on Parduhn's nine. THAT a lot of people around the coun ty are missing some good ball games IS a real fact AND they better be rushing out to a few of these games before 'the season is over. v r A rltJ i For Divers Reasons SJ ' v woo iCtill tX Bavaria athiti Suit Pitcher Williams. Williams, White Sox twirler, geti Into the limelight with his team mate, Ed Cicotte, as one of the first to be fined thi3 season for tampering .with the ball.

The Dyer High School nine added another victory to their list when they defeated the Steger Tigers Sunday afternoon at Dyer. The Dyer lads ran true to form in this game by playing ragged ball in the first three innings, then settling down and playing an air-tight game. Frledrich was tried out behind the bat and Kammer sent to center at the start of the game, however, neither player showed to advantage in their new surroundings. After the third inning fireworks, when the visitors scored three runs and increased their lead to five runs, these lads were shift ed to their old positions where they showed some dandy work during the remainder of the game. In the fourth the Dyer nine staged a great batting rally by clubbing in five runs and tying the count, rom then on it was a sure thing for them as Milhrich was invinci ble with his old bittery mate behind the bat. A running catch of a low liner by "Teute" was the individual fielding feature of the game. Score by innings-.
