HUMPHRIES PITCHES FIRST NO
HII GAME OF SEASON; SECOND
SINCE WHO LAKELAND
Glher Being Against Jacksonville Last Year—
Fourth No-hit Game Since Organization of the
League—Frazier of Orlando Against Lakeland
and Hall of Lakeland Against Tampa Twirling
Bort Humphries, dean of the
Lakeland pitching staff, broke into
the baseball Hall of Fame for the
second time in two years, when
he pitched his second no-hit game
yesterday afternoon against the
Islanders from Daytona, his first,
no-hit game being turned in last
season against the aggregation
from Jacksonville. Despite the
fact that Humphries was scored
on, the game was masterful in its
every detail and the “grand old
man” of the Florida State League
deserved a shut out, which he
would have gotten had not Bud
Gilson booted one at the wrong
time. The game was not perfect
insomuch as Bert passed two and
hit one batter, however, be that'
as it may, it is deserving of all
the good things that are being
said about it.
A no-hit same is the ambition of all
pitchers and an ambition that is sel
dom realized, but to accomplish the
t'e<st twice ift as many years is, indeed,
beyond the ordinary and is a record
held by precious few pitchers in any
league since the beginning of baseball
in America, some fifty-odd years ago.
There were thirty-three hatters to
face Humphries, two being given
bases on balls, one licit hit in the
ribs, one Gilson put on when he bob
hied and the other on an error by
Humphries himself. In six of the nine
innings the visitors were retired in
order, seven going out by the strike
out route, five on flies to the outfield
and the other fifteen on easy chances
to the infield.
The visitors were absolutely help
less before the grand pitching of
Humphries all the way and were pre
sented with their lone tally in the
fourth frame. Francis, first up, whiffed
at three and McGee was an easy out,
Gilson to Harbison. Shannon and Res
co were both given free tickets to first
base and when Wood hit to Gilson
who fumbled and then threw wide of
first base. Shannon counted. Rymer
made it three down by grounding to
Kowalski. In the iiftli inning Munn
was given a life at first base when
Humphries messed his grounder up,
and he proved to be the only Islander
to reach first base from then on as
the side was retired in order in the
The locals did the usual thing and
salted the ball game away in the fiist
frame, which is a mighty commend
able liabit they have acquired of late.
Cusack, who was Manager Martin’s
choice for the pitching assignment,
and who has been one of the hardest
pitchers to beat that Lakeland has
encountered the past two seasons, got
in hot water at the beginning of
things. Gladu beat out a slow roller
to Shannon at short and Kowalski ad
vanced him a station with a sacrifice.
Harbison delivered himself of a
mighty two base wallop in left field
and Frenchie counted. Stewart fol
lowed the manager’s example and
doubled to the same location counting
Harbison. Johnson hit to Shannon

and Stewart was trapped and finally
run down, Johnson legging it around
to third base while the chase was on,
and there he died as Smith’s grounder
to Fgancis was handled in time to
retire the catchenrightfielder at first.
The game, from this stage up to the
seventh, when the last Highlander
market was pushed over, became a
real pitchers’ battle, Cusack retiring
the locals without a hit, and only per
mitted three runners to reach first
base, two on bases on balls and the
other on a fly to right field which
McGee dropped after a short sprint. In
the seventh the locals counted the
final score of the game. Gilson flew
out to left field as did Schubert, Rym
er robbing Schubert of a three base
wallop when he speared iiis line drive
with his gloved hand. Humphries sin
gled to short left field as did Gladu.
Humphries being held at second. Ko
walski hit one at Resco which took a
funny bounce and Whitey was safe at
first on a play that could have been
called either way. With two down
and the bases drunk, Cusack lost the
location of the plate and forced in
Humphries when he walked Harbison.
Stewart was up, and there is no more
dangerous hitter in the league with
the runners on, and-the stands clam
ored for a house-cleaning wallop. Bon
nie failed to deliver, being an easy out
to Cusack to Resco, and the scoring
for the day was over.
This afternoon we have as our
guests George Stovall and his gang
from Jaytown. Turn out, fans, and
let's give “Smiling" George a real
honest-to-goodness welcome, one of
the kind that has made Lakeland
famous. Besides, we want ami must
have all three of these games and
some good rooting from the side lines
and the stands will help a whole lot.

The golf season is on in full blast

golf. When trying to pick a winner
of a golf championship it is well to
keep in mind Mark Twain's advice

makes golf the really great game it
