Thrills Ball Fans
By GEORGE E. FIRSTTBROOK
Pulling-away pennantward again! The Pittsfield Hillies
'played the Good Samaritan act by trimming the ambitious
Boosters. Today the Brown' Derbies are leading the procession
with a margin of three games.
There's a chance to keep right on hopping upward for the
iremainder of the week. The Brasscos finish their activities to
iday, while the Ponies will be here tomorrow, (Ladies' Day.)
; Games are also booked with the Ponies in Springfield Saturday,
- while the Jack Flynn clan will be here for the Sunday dough.
Mighty roaring finish yesterday! Score tied in the eighth,
i while the Brasscos hoist the white flag in the ninth. Runs 3
to 2 in favor of Derbies.
,.'
; . .Torpedoes for Jerry Kahn
'- - Smashing hits to right field by King-don and Loftus in the
; ninth netted the winning tally. Some biffing! Jerry Kahn's
delivery was rifled thoroughly. Joe Smith opened the inning
jwith a bing to the same territory, but he was thrown out by
i Perrin in a try -to make third base on Kingdon's wallop.
' Some finish, Kiddo, believe it!
1 McLaughlin Tied Score. .
i : It was a wihrlwind finish. In the
eighth it looked as if Jerry Kahn was
fa certain mound winner, but when
i the score was tied he lost his effective
ness. McLaughlin spanked the ball down
past third base for a clean double.
Emmerich hit the ball to short, Horkr
tbeimer shooting it to Long. It was
Vm. close play, Sam Sank, new umpire,
(calling McLaughlin safe. The decision
created a big howl among the cos-
srrove crowd. "Mac" scored later on
Ray's sacrifice to Torphy, beating out
the throw to the plate.
t ' Kahn's wildnesa in the initial round
netted the Derbies a tally, Ray scor
jlng on a wild pitch after Martin fiied
out and Rodriguez and Smith walked.
Brasscos Score Pair,
j Waterbury's pair of tallies were
-posted in the fourth session on hits by
cosgrove. Pickup and Horkheimer,
land a wild heave by Stauffer.
Although Stauffer pitched eight
' Innings Bornhoeft takes the credit of
(winning the game as the score was
itie when he succeeded Stauffer, after
r Joe Boehling acted in the role of pinch
: hitter for the former.
Tyler, Waterbury's catcher, exe
cuted a classy piece of work when he
got under Boehling's high foul against
the bleachers.
Perrin Has Fine Whip.
Perrin's pair of throwouts of Joe
Smith at third base was pretty work.
In the fourth Smith doubled to right
and failed in an attempt to stretch
the hit into a triple, Perrin shot the
ball to' Horkheimer, who relayed it to
Long. It was a tough day for our
reliable catcher on the bases.
When the ball led Emmerich's bat
in the fifth it looked good for a long
distance clout, but a wonderful catch
. by Pickup made it unnecessary for
the "Rabbit" to display his base
; sprinting qualities.
Smith's slam to right in the ninth
i bore the luck charm. Torphy had set
j himself to stop the ball but it took an
I ugly, bound out of his reach.
Ray Has Big Day.
Tommy Ray got in a pair of singles
and a timely sacrifice that pushed a
run across the plate in three trips to
! the plate. Ray had a bit of hard luck
I in the third after singling to center,
i when he was declared out for col
) liding with Martin's roller.
- When Dowd fanned in the seventh
i be exhibited some "I don't care" mo
," tions which nearly caused a fight on
! the field. Hot words passed between
I him and Pickup and Joe Cosgrove
' (was forced to inject his diplomacy to
(.prevent an outbreak.
"Manager Joe" had a busy after
Voon in center, six fly hits perishing
nia mitts,
i Here's a New One
I In the sixth one of Kahn's shoots
hit Rodriguez's bat, the ball nestling
tin the Cuban's armpit. Umpire Kitty
i "RrariK field was a bit surprised when
f Rodriguez handed him the ball with a
smile after another had been thrown
I into play.
The two Eddies Hart and Zimmer
; man are out of the Brassco lineup by
i minor injuries.

Joe Smith, manager of Louis Bo

Pershing of North Adams, offering to
fight Bogash in Bridgeport for the
New England title. 'Frit Musante
advised the irrepressible Joe to -engage
the Arena for the battle, but
Smith displayed no ambitions to be
come a fight promoter in these pre
carious times.
Pershing in his letter to Smith
boasted of making quite a reputation
in the army. In one ofhis battles
he claims a knockout victory over
Emil Spit, formerly one of the ex
Kaiser's fighting chauffeurs.

New Haven, Aug. 11 Tale's foot
ball schedule for 1921 will contain a
radical innovation in the shape of the
first time ever played by Tale against
West Point in New Haven. This, it
is expected, will fill the Bowl as fully
as former Harvard and Princeton
matches have filled it
Four early season foes of last sea-

West Virginia and Colgate have been
dropped. The Brown game has been
moved to an earlier date and Tale has
added Bates, Vermont and Williams to
the list. The PTarvard game is the

HITTING THE
SPORT TRAIL
With Geo. E. Firstbrook
Benny Leonard broke his thumb, but the champion claims it was a lucky
break for Lew Tendler. - .
.
According to reports from New York it will be pretty nearly
time to take up a collection to hire a band to give Gene McCann a
rousing sendoff when he quits Bridgeport this season and moves up
into the "Big Show" to pilot the Yankees.
McCann has delivered the goods in Bridgeport even should the Brown
Derbies fail to shoot over, the line first. Bridgeport has been up at the top
longer than any other club and the fans have had a great season. To speak
the truth the McCann squad has overfed Bridgeport with good baseball, and
all kicks are ruled out of order.
Some of the fanciest fielding in the pastime has been put on
the boards at Newfield Park and local fans will be a few years older
and be disporting a few more gray hairs before they see the equal
of the 1921 Derbies in fielding. '
McCann stands high in the estimation of his players which is the greatest
of all assets. He was a player himself once upon a time and is familiar with
the obstacles that creep into the paths of youngsters. By winning the respect
or his players JKtCann has succeeded in molding together the fastest team
in the Eastern circuit.
Every one hopes that the major league promotion win come
McCann's way. He possesses horse sense and that's the main quali
fication for ,a successful manager.
j-
It was McCann who put a shot of ginger in league ball here this season.

CAMBRIDGE Football practice

ler, challenger for the world's light
weight boxing championship, who
was to have met Benny Leonard in
a bout for the title here tomorrow
night which was called off when the
champ dislocated his thumb has an
nounced he would appear at the pro
moter's headquarters at the schedul

Wilson-Downey Bout.
Boston, Aug. 11 Martin Killilea,
manager of Johnny Wilson, middle
weight champion, announced last
nigtit that Wilson had been matched
by Tex Rickard to meet Bryan
Downey in a 12-round no-decision
bout at Jersey City on Labor Day. In
a recent bout at Cleveland the
referee awarded the decision to Wil
son on a foul, but the Cleveland box
ing commission announced that it
had overruled the decision and would
recognize Downey as champion
claiming that he had actually scored
a knockout. The, Massachusetts box
ing commission has refused to recog
nize the action of the Cleveland
board.
Wilson will receive 35 per cent, of
the gate receipts and Downey 20 per
cent. Both men are to weigh 160
pounds at 10 o'clock in the morning.
They will enter the ring at 4 p. m.
Do You Know
That
Horkheimer Is
Stamped 0. K.
Bridgeport ball fans had the
the opportunity of gazing upon
Harold Horkheimer in a league
uniform yesterday in the game
agaiaot Waterbury. The native
MB, who' formerly starred on the
Lordabip team and also on local
factory nine, 4s going to make
good. He's a fast man at short
and eats loose a lot of pep. He
showed good yesterday Hork
bemer fielded his four chances
perfectly and batted in Water
bury's first tally in thci fourth iu
ning on a slashing bing between
center and right. If the Bridge
port boy continues the pace he
hit up yesterday there's no doubt
about his making good.

DAN O'NEIL TIGHT AS A CLAM
IN GIVING OUT LEAGUE NEWS
If Dan O'Neil, praxy of the Eastern 1
League,' ever hired out as publicity
agent, for a circus it's a safe bet he
wouldn't draw over one day's pay
end hat 6orae one else would have
the jtb in 2 4 hoars. O'Neil is in the
hardboiled egg class when it comes
to handing the news regarding league
' natters. "Why don't you go to the
secretaries of the clubs for news,"
wan hie retort yesterday, when a bold
attempt was made to quiz the East
', era czar.
In the course of & patch quilt con
i vernation O'Neil chanced to remark
I he did not believe Juries were much,
i rood in baseball scandal trials. The
jame of John Heydier, president of
the National League, was brought
out. Dan scratched his bead, hesi
tated, and exclaimed: "Who is Heyd-ler?"
When some one approached Prexy
Dan with "'Hello, Dan, gosh you look
young as ever." Dan smiled and add
ed, "Yes, I weigh s.uOut 220, the same
as ever." That was the only time he
cut loose.
O'Neil put the brakes on league
news except to say everything was
eatisfactory in all of the towns except
Albany, where the trolley car strike
has put the baseball on the kibosh.
It is likely that Albany will have a
majority of her games transferred to
other cities, O'Neil said.

promoters are gains to send Man

between the Bridgeport battler

boxer who recently made a fa
vorable showing against' Cham
pion Johnny Britton in the Jer
sey metropolis. Dan Slobodein, a
Newark sport, who is visiting his
brother-in-law. Jack Reich, the
North End checker champion, was
a spectator ot the bout, says that
Walker outclassed Britton and
would have received the verdict,
except for the no-decision pro
vision in the Jersey boxing law.
CLARK LANE, president of
the Bridgeport Baseball club,
doesn't take much stock in the
reports going the rounds that
Jack Mack may transfer his club

Derbies playing to good sized
crowds, with the exception of a

The Walnuts want to know where
the Irans and the Crashoes get off
with that stuff of making such a
wrangle over who is champion of the
South and West Ends when neither
of them have, any just claim to the
title. Captain Joe Hamilton, of the
Walnuts, claims that his team has
held that honor for the past five years
and is still able to defend it. He chal
lenges either the Crashoes or the
Irans for a game a week from Sun
day. Hamilton says that he has a
team that is superior to either of the
claimants and strong enough to hold
its own in the City league. Span
Bowden, star of the Public Market
is the mainstay on the mound for the

Newark Ring Critic Passes
Bouquet To Louis Bogash
Louis Bogash looked "ace" high" to
Jersey boxing critics in his bout with
Biily Krug in Newark on Tuesday
night. The Newark Star-Eagle in
commenting on the fight said:
"Much has been said in the
press regarding Bogash's fight
ing abilities, and after his exhi
bition with Krug it cannot be
denied that he !) a fit boxer to
meet Britton or any other claim
ant to welter championship hon
ors. The Bridgeport boy is a
shifty Jad in the ring. He lands
his wallop quickly and gets out
of the danger zone of the return
punches in jig time. Krug stayed
the limit, because he kept on the
run all the time. Bogash dis
' played no tendency to show his
sprinting qualities, but contented
himself with socking the Harri
son boy good and plenty while
the latter kept within range of
his blows. In the last three
rounds, however, Bogash in
creased his speed and showed the
kind of hard stuff he carries in
his blows. The consensus., of
opinion at Ihe ringside was that
Bogash could finish Krug in five
boxer had eliminated his sprint
ing about the ring, which was
the only thing to save him. If
for the title our bet will be on
Bogash."
Today Bogash resumed his train
ing for his bout with Johnmy Tillman
in Boston next Tuesday night.
The Newark paper also hands
Patsy Bogash credit for his fine
shiwing against Joe Santone. "Bo
gash's brother. Patsy, in his bout
with Santone made a hit with the
ring bugs He was in action all the
time and displayed no limit of clev
erness," the critic said.
