Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 20, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX THE LKTHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD THURSDAY, JUNE 20, 1918 ^BRINGING UP FATHER" By G. McMamis f a Bankers and Old Timers to Clash -��- -.:- -ci-- ^lay Friday for Sailors^ Relief Fund The Old Timers will do battle again on Friday night. They have accepted the defi hurled by the Bankers' team, and a great game Is expected. The game will be played for the Sailors' Relief Fund which the Alexander Gait chapter I.O.b.Ei. is raising through the Herald, and a collection will be taken at the gate as the fans arrive. This will be a real game. Scott, who exhibited so much stuff last week when pitching for the Old Timers against the High School nine, will be on the mound for Tesreau Quits New York Team the bankers, and Wllliarps will do the heavy artillery work for the Forty-Niners. The bankers have a couple of^men who have played in the Calgary City league and threaten to spring a surprise on ) the unsuspecting public. The Old Timers will be strengthened for the fray and altogether a good class of ball wilt be played. The game is called for 6:45. This is a chance for every fan in the city to contribute something towards a worthy fund, and see a ball game into the bargain. 32 RONS N FIVE CMS Rockford Forest City Team Chalks Up Baseball Scoring Record in 1870 It was on May IT. 1S70. 4S years ftgo, that the famous Forest City base-hall, when protesslonallsln was just 'jished a swatting record for five innings by making 132 runs !n a game with the Atlantics of Chicago, who �were held down to one run. "Them was the happy days" in base-bal, when professionalism was just heginntng in the great American sport when the 10 players composing the team were mostly home grown products and really lived in the cities which ihoy represented, and when many smaller cities had clubs which Btood on an eflual footing with the best teams of the big cities. The Atlantic? had their bail lot on the North Side, and were considered  good club, although surpassed by the Chicago Excelsiors. In the early days of the game in Illinois the Rockford Forest Citys were supreme, and in 18C4 all Chicago rejoiced when the Kicelaiors humbled the proud spirit of the Rocli-ford club. There were no leagues in those days but many great baseball tournaments notably at Rockford and Blooraington. 111. The Rockford Forest Citys had three of the greatest players in history in Ansan, A. G. Spalding and Barnes. When the National club of Washington toured the country in 1SG7 they met their defeat in Rockford. in 1S69 when the Cincinnati Red Stockings, the. pioneer professional team, made its tour from eastern Canada to California, the Forest Citys were defeated In two games. On that tour Cincinnati won all games and did not learn the taste of defeat.

DON'T MISS THE ABOVE enforcement of the drastic legislation prohibiting all ' freak" deliveries, but when hurlers found they would not be permitted to tamper with the ball, because umpires Were instructed to carry out the rules to llie letter, they abandoned all attempts to "got away" with anything. Not a single complaint against the alleged use of apitball, emory hall or similar deliveries reached Thomas Hlckey, president of the association la the first five weeks of the season. "I consider this a remarkable record," President Ilickey said, "for wo expected all sorts of trouble over Ihe Bpltball and other prohibited deliveries. The elimination of these deliveries has resulted in a speedier game, fewer wrangles between umpires and managers, and a more spirited batting contest, which lias made a strong appeal to the patrons of the game." The success of twilight baseball In Xfinneapoiis may lead to the adoption of the "after supper" game in two or three cities in the association, according to reports reaching President Hlckey. The Minneapolis twilight attendance is double the usual afternoon crowds. "The plan probably could bo adopted with success In Milwaukee and Kansas City, but I think conditions would be unfavorable,to cities in the ISastern circuit," said President Hidkoy. "People are so busy that they can't got awuy from the work during the afternoon as much as they would like to attend the games. The same situation, in regard to attendance, affects the major leagues. All are feeling the effects of the war. Labor la scarce and every businoss house Is short ot help. But I believe the people engaged in war work will bo glad to attend ball games in the evening." Operating expenses continue to mount In the association as a result of the IncroasQ in railroad rates. The 25 per cent, increase in passenger faros will mean a $7,500 incroaso to the expense of every club. The average traveling expense for a club during normal times is approximately .$7,000 a season.

To Sergeant Francis Ouimet, conqueror of Kay and Vardon in the memorable series at Brooklyn in 1913, the east owes much for the wonderful growth the game has experienced in this section in the last few years.
