Morning Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 25, 1945, Hagerstown, Maryland THI Urn of Sports trhWss some is passed preventing the world series thine baseball claEslca will be aUged this The Navy has gone on rec ordthat they would like to have the make a 90 day tour of the Pacific stations and play ex hibitions Of course organized baseball has a rule forbidding the champions from Btaging exhihltioai but that is a mere matter to over come and JJQ one in organized base ball would a monkey wrench into inch a movefor the boys U the Navy the boys to go on tour one could almost wager their last piece of bacon if they are for tunate enough to have any that the series will be played The ODT may aale of tickets tg fani in the citiei where the games are to be played but that it another small matter There will he enough fans to make the well worthwhile Travel for the players could easily be arranged either by airplanes bus or private cars Yep it looks as if the classic is on for sure thii year Charles Town High will not gotn for a heavyfootball schedule this coming season is the report reach ing this column The Purple Pan thers will cut their playing dates andmeet schools located in their section which is a very good idea dueto the gas and traveling con ditions Some of the boys who have Hank Greenberg in action since his from the Army state that the big slugger Is suf fering from charley horse in both legs and that is the reason he has not been pounding the ball at the clip expected of him That could easily be true as Greenberg per haps rushed his condition to tan ektent that his legs suffered and that is hindering his swing at tae plate Getting right out of the Army and into baseball cant be done in a week days and now Greenberg will have to go along and work those kinks out of his legs gradually and it is quite a Job and painful along with it During the recent race meet in this city we had a chance to do some fanning with several old timers from Washington and they all stated that ifWashington had a winning ball club in those days the park would have been packed to ca pacity It was during those days that the majors put up at a down town hotel dressed there and then rode to the ball park In a horse drawn bus Every kid along the streetused to stand and watch that bus go by They could tell you the players and many was the time some lucky kid would be picked up and taken into the game and used as a bat boy Even the oldsters would pause and watch the visiting majors ride by watch ing such stars at Waddell Hughie Jennings Ty Cobb Crawford Joa Wood and many other stars It was a great piece of publicity and fans got to know the boys Now the majors breeze into town and their units are shipped right to the park and the boys take taxis to the park prior to the game It was a great ride from the old Arlington Hotel to the park at 7th and Florida ask any kid that toted bats for a visiting club o Allegany High School gridders will play a nine gams card this coming season opening on either September 21 or 22 with the Som erset Pa High eleven Games have been booked with Ridgely LaSalle Keyser Fort Hill and Hagerstown Walter L Bowers athletic director
