Its all over but playing out the
schedule and having the formal and I
ceremonious presentation of the bunt
ing to the Lawmakers Frankfort has
u the Blue Grass League pannant
ame with Richmond on Monday
i 11 lie was won by the home team
pinched it and now no matter if
Frankfort loses all the remaining
games and the nearest competitor
wins thorn all Frankfort would still
I be In the lead when the season ends
0f course Frankfort Is not going to do
any such thing as lose all the re
maining games nor is the nearest
competitor Lexington or any of the
other teams in the league going to
win all the games played But still
I this impossible contingency could
happen and Frankfort would have the
pennant won Formal ceremonies
will be held later In the fall when the
flag will be presented to Frankfort
and will be put on the flag pole on
the McClure building the tallest place
in the city It will fly there for a
while and then will be taken down
J to be preseerved by those who won
Frankfort had the best team That
was all there was to the tale of the
race for the epntnanonnaha cmfwyp
ace for the pennant For only one
Way was Frankfort out of first place
The team i the league from the
rr4g t e present and will
lea e end with the excep
tion vv For that brief space
of tin nosed into the front
but sta such a short time
that til Id not get accus
turned k o t p ion and did not
know how to Int n It In every
e department of e game the Frank
fort team man man and individ
ually outclassed ie other teams in
the league and there was never a
chance of being headed
Wright is the bright particular star
He pitched thirteen games and won
them all He walked only two men
and one of those passes was really
a strikeout as was conceded by the
umpire after the Inning was over In
addition to pitching thirteen win
ning games Wright played center in
I the games where he was not pitch
ing and his fielding batting base run
ning were a great help to the Law
t makers in their rungetting Wright
is a pinch hitter and won several
games by slamming the ball at the
right lime Then take it all around
and Frankfort has a team which Is
j probably the best In Kentucky out
side of the Louisville Association
i4bunch which Is going to win the pen
i nantRed Bohannon belongs in fast
company He is fully able to go in
with any American Association team
t He plays second with snap and vim
I and goad headwork and can hold
down that sack for any old team
Look at the others Zerlage at first
Guest at short Fritz Hoffman at
third Angemeler behind the bat and
Chapman Wright and Steele in the
outer garden That bunch outclasses
I anything in the Blue Grass man for
man and It is no wonder that Frank
fort won the pennant
U Early in the season Frankfort out
b1lucked the other teams Frankfort
won several games by luck pure and
t simple for Richmond had a better
team but Chick Kennedy got busy
and gathered In some other players
Red came back home and Hoff
man got in the game here and In the
latter half of the season it was always
Frankfort The others were out
classed and knew It Young Schulto
is a good pitcher and Cornell Is good
enough for Toledo to try out next
year so he must be all right He has
pitched good ball all season and he
and Wright have been the reliable
and steady standbys of the Frankfort
I team Crutcher was unlucky in that
J l he injured his arm by overwork but
J with a rest he will come again and
Iill inext year he will be one of the best In
tk the business Allison played abril
if liant game at short until he was in
91 jured and forced to drop out of tho
Wi game for several weeks His absence
i 1 left fl big hole in the Infield and Man
I htlagel Kennedy was exceedingly lucky
n In getting so good a man as Guest
1 Even Allison was hardly missed
i Frankfort won two games from
Richmond this week taking one on
Sunday and another on Monday The
v game on Sunday was a good one and
Frankfort played perfect ball win
S 1fling by a score of 9 to 0 three of the
runs being made on errors But they
Bruno Monday was not so good aiI
though much closer
team was illassorted
the men feing chang <
Huffman went to right
took thirds a position w I nft
his long suit Guest was not 1 oocl
shape so he was put in left ela
and Chapman went to short where he
I played a fair game schulte pitched
and did well Frankfort gave a god
Imitation of a team trying to give a
game away several times and played
some stupid ball but Richmond did
the same thing and lost the game
The visitors did a great deal of very
stujKtl base running taking long
chances when they should not and
I not taking them when they should
The score seesawed a good deal and
Frankfort won out In the seventh
after Richmond had tied the score in
their half of that inning by putting
two runs over the plate
The game of ball between the
Louisville Colonels and the Law
makers here some time about tho
middle of the month will be the
biggest event of Its kind ever pulled
off in Frankfort Manager Burke will
bring his entire team and you can
rest assured that the club will play
to win as the game will be on the
percentage basis Manager Burke
realizes that our Lawmakers will put
up a fine game consequently will send
his best man to the box Invincible
Rasty Wright will be on the rubber
for our pennant winners and its n
hundred to one shot that the boy
from Hatton dont give a single one of
the boys from Louisville fan trans
portation to the first sock This
game should be attended by every
man woman and child In Frankfort
It Is not often the people of a city
Is afforded an opportunity of seeing
a big league ball game and should
not fail to be on hand
The Millers proved to be easy pick
Ing for the Lawmakers at Shelby
vlHe Tuesday by a score of 9 to 5
Cornell did the slab work for the
local club and pitched a fine game
He was opposed by Feeney and
Forrest better known as Rasty
Wright will not be able to play an
other game this season on account
of having his middle finger of the
left hand Injured In the game at
Shelbyville Tuesday He was playing
in the center garden and attempted
to catch a long fly on the run when
the ball struck him on the end of the
finger tearing the flesh away from
the bone The many friends of
Old Rasty will be sorry to learn
of his misfortune as his slab work
on the local diamond always brings
out a big crowd Wright has accom
pushed this season something no
other ball player has done not only
in this league but in all leagues He
has putched 117 Innings and has won
every game and has never hit a bat
ter and only gave two men during
the entire season transportation
to the first sock Wright has been
sent to the box to oppose the strong
est club of the Blue Grass League
and each and every time he has come
out with the black and white colors
flying There are several big league
clubs after Rasty for next season
and we believe he will make good
no matter where he plays He says
he hopes that his hand will be well
enough to pitch against the Louis
vill cluo here about the middle of
the month as he Is very anxious to
show the big league fellows that the
B G L can play ball
Manager Tommy Sheets Journeyed
to Richmond Tuesday accompanied
by his bunch of Thoroughbreds and
took the Pioneers into camp 1 to 0 In
a pretty pitchers battle between E
Golden for Richmond and McCormick
for the Thoroughbreds Six hits were
made off McCormicks delivery but
they were well scattered while only
two were made off Golden one of
which was a home run by Stockum
in the eighth
The Lawmakers have only four
more games to play this season one
at Lawrenceburg and three at home
There Is talk of a postseason se
ries of games for the championship
of Kentucky between Frankfort win
ners of tho Blue Grass League pen
nant and Louisville provided Louis
ville wins the Association pennant
01 oven if that team should land in
second place Tho games would bo
