High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - March 23, 1939, High Point, North Carolina Pack four Sec. The High Point Enterprise Piedmont Center High Point North Carolina thursday March 23, 1939 1%. A ii t /. Soc Chakales sport f ii Tor Burge going great Lester Burro the Archdale product who was Halfway mib a merged in the coastal Plains league last year after a rather glorious career with the Mccrary eagles is bearing out the predictions made for him a couple years. Arnold Koonce the funeral Man brought to our desk a copy the Atlanta paper which heralds the work Burge in training with the crackers in Savannah. Tack Troy the Atlanta Constitution has this to say Savannah March 18.�?lester Burge has More Power than any hitter the crackers have had since Roy Carlisle. They re really going to have to make a place for the Young slugger from High Point. Because in addition to the fact that he is capable parking drives the Railroad tracks at Ponce de Leon he is a Good fielder. I watched him slug numerous pitches Over the stadium in right today and it was really something to see. Some the balls he hit would have been Clear out the Park in Atlanta. It does t seem to make any difference whether a Pitcher is right left handed. He a a lot like Johnny Hill in this respect. He does no to know who a pitching. Clyde Smoll the left hander from Texas pitched to Burge in batting practice today and Burge simply ruined almost everything he threw up. Then Larry Miller pitched against him and the North Carolina husky rifled a couple Over the Flag pole in Center. Burge appears to be a natural hitter he takes a Fine Cut at the Ball and meets the pitches in front the plate. Even when he hits a Ball bad he gives it a healthy Ridley another thing Burge does no to hit at bad balls. They be got to be Good he does no to offer at them. Here s a boy who appears to be capable trimming the big Southern league Parks Down to his Sise to say that the crackers have come up with a real find in Burge is putting it mildly. He is Apt to hit the Ball out the Park at any time. Young Doc Smith who played with Burge in North Carolina said today that Burge really has t got his Eye the Ball yet. A just wait a he said a until he gets his timing Down. Well i m perfectly willing to wait. Because if he can hit a Ball any better later it really will be something Worth seeing.
