DUE TO ACCIDENT
Warsaw Catcher Was Injured
and Bubbles Offers Himself
as the Goat But Puts Up a
First Class Job.
Going from Torre Haute to the biff
leagues is in itself a distinction hut
when that is accompanied by a blare
of trumpets that "listens" like tho
noise that accompanied telrover Alex
ander, -.vho is a pitcher by accident,
and who was made over by a discreet
manager, real eclat is added.
This is what happened to Eugene
Hargrave, recently bought by the Chi
cago Nationals, and it is told of in a
story printed in the Torre Haute Star
under a Warsaw date line. Said
story runs like this:
"Eugene Hubbies Hargrave, who
has been purchased from the Terre
Haute Central league club by the
Chicago Nationals, and who will re
port at the close of the Central leaguo
season, started his baseball career in
Warsaw in 1110, and the story of hi
beginning is interesting.
"Tho Warsaw ball club, a semi
professional organization, was man
aged by Walter Cook, who hail a good
eye on promising youngsters. He
picked up Hargrave at New Haven,
Ind., and brought him here for a try
out in the Held. Hargrave was then
a big overgrown boy of about 17 years
ami his entire experience in baseball
had come from town lot playing at
New Haven. Hargrave worked sev
eral games at short and in right field,
and then came the happening that
made him a catcher.
"Carr, the regular catcher, was in
jured severely in running bases and
as the club carried only one backstop,
the management w;us up against a
snag. It was while Manager Cook
was facing this perplexing question
that Hargrave stepped up and offered
to don the mask. He hung h head
like a schoolboy and he said: 'Mr.
Cook. I believe I can stop them all
right." The offer was instantly ac
cepted and the substitute's work dur
ing the remainder of the game was
so satisfactory that the regular catch
er was released' and Hargrave was
given the job.
"Hargrave became a great favorite
with the local players and the fans,
and he was speedily .given the nick
name F.ubble. because of a slight im
pediment in his speech and his over
running good humor. He was always
full of ginger and his encouraging
words brought the best there was out
of every pitcher that was used. He
never g:t e up and helped to turn
many a defeat into victory by starting
a batting rally in the ilnal inning.
From the very hrst game he was a
marvel at bat and he seldom hit for
less than two bases.
"Hargrave's playing soon attracted
attention throughout this section and
before the close of the season he was
signed by Terre Haute. He has con
stantly improved and Ms playing has
been one of the sensations of the
OrvaJ (Uerall. ex-Cub pitcher, won
his first game in the Paeiho Coast
league for San Francisco yesterday,
defeating Oakland 'j to 1. This was
his second trial, having been knocked
out on his :irst appearance.

NEWPORT. II. I.. Aug. 22 of the

in which the defeat of William M. !
H. A orris Williams was
the feature, it was conceded that the
standard of play had never reached
the point of excellence which marked
the present tourney.
Williams required four sots in
which to win from Johnston, the
scores being 6-4, "J-G, hut
the margin of victory was far closer
than the mere score of games would
indicate. Tho Californian was forced
to bow to the more tinished play ot
his oToionent but not until he had
put up a battle which aroused an
other record gallery in a manner
seldom seen at the casino courts.
It was a thrilling battle of rac
quets ai.d wits and in the end tho
Fhiladelphian conquered because of
his experience and nonchalence under
stress of a gruelling contest.
Although the Williams-Johnston
match was the grand court feature
the contests on other courts did not
lack merit. As was expected, Cham
pion M. K. McFoughlin defeated Rob
