Norfolk Wlno the First Game.
Not folk won tlio III-HL game of tlio
legllhir baseball Season at llOlllO , TllUS-
day nftornooii , fioin Slanlon liy a
Hcoru of 10 to ! t. Many spectacular
plain j'oro ) witnessed by a crowd of
about 300 fiuiH , made ut | of Norfolk
and Stanton business men and a largo
following of regular buBuball ioolci'8.
Because of tliu one-Hided fuatniu of
tlio game tlio itniiut heavy rooting was
not In evidence.
Notwithstanding tlio fact tbat Stanton -
ton caino ( o Norfolk wltb tlio uvowed
intentlonn of beating tlio NorfoiK
team oanlly , tlio local players Hconiud
at no tliiui In danger of defeat. In
every inning , except tlio liiHt three ,
wlieti Norfolk put In substitutes to
replace a few of tlio regular men , did
they fall to Bcoro. Tlio Stanton team
went to bat first without a score and
were followed by Norfolk with tbreo
straight lilts and tbreo scores. Holt' '
man , who played a feature game all
tlio way through , stalled tbo batting
for tbo locals with a bit and a score.
Kraliii and Qllsstnan did tlio same as
Hoffman In this inning but Soldol puz
zled Miller , Lucas and Wlldo with his
In tlio second Inning Carl Martin
the little telegrapher from I'ilgor , who
seemed to bo a backstop for Norfolk
was hit and his fast base stealing net
ted Stanton their Ilrst run. Norfolk
In this Inning batted Soldel out ol
the box , Schelly and Krnhn boll
knocking out homo runs. In this
Inning Norfolk brought In six scores
with Wilde ( Hiding Soldel's curves fo
a one-bagger. Soldel was replaced by
Atkinson , who tried out with Fremont
but this leaguer was also easy for the
locals and Martin canio to the rescue
and tried his hand with good effect h
the pitcher's box.
Hopper played the game all the way
through and when Kclcbor substituted
Deiiton , bo brought In a three-bagger
and a score for Stanton. Mayor A
I'ont , the veteran player , played an
errorless game but It did not help mat-
tors. All through tbo game It looked
llko Stanton was just beginning the
game and a few more games will put
them In tiptop shape for a close
All Earn Honors.
The entire Norfolk team came Infer
for honors. Dcnton pitched an excel
lent game and could havov worked
through the contest but Capt. Gllss-
man , on recommendation of Hoffman ,
retired him to hold him for future
work. Kcleber succeeded him in the
flfth Inning and made good.
When it was tipped off to Stanton
that a high school boy was to pitch
against them , they considered themselves -
selves the winners of the game , but
after a few times at the bat they found
they were up against a mystery. Even
Kclchor , another high school boy
showed them tbat Norfolk has some
l > < very good talent.
Hoffman played tbo game In an er
rorless manner all tbo way through
and It was his excellent work which
held the visitors down to such a low
score. "Skcet" was well played out
when tbo game was over. Martin on
second , In missing a ball , struck Hoff
man on tbo back of the head knock
ing him out for a moment. An off ball 1
injured his ungloved hand and be re
ceived other minor Injuries. Gliss- ,
man starred on first and no errors
were checked against him. Chris is
playing the fast game ho played last
year , and as a captain ho is making
good. South saved the Norfolk team
at times by his high leaps in the air
ono bringing down the ball from the
sky onto the bag with a sensational
double. Miller bad an off day on
second but although ho erred twice
made good otherwise. Lucas was
spiked and received a wrenched ankle
having to retire from the game. Ho
was replaced by Clark who featured
once more in base stealing.
Krabn played a line game at short
but because of the beat found It nee.
essary to retire. Secretary Hulac
went into the field for a few innings
hut sufficient opportunity was not >
given him to exhibit his skill. Hoiitl
muff ono high ono , but because of the
lack of necessary equipment. Schelly s
who knocked the second homo run foi
tbo locals , was in the game < o win ant
played strictly first-class baseball
Wlldo retired near tbo end and Kluf
played for him for a few Innings. Ii
all the regular Norfolk team showei
good team work and for the time Um
plro Persons called tbo game the
played together almost like a. i-u'-fes
If Norfolk keeps up this team worl
and cuts out the seesawing they wll
easily bo tbo north Nebraska cham
pious this season.
Autos and Band in Parade.

bile loads of fans , not counting tbosi

CY YOUNG MAY COME BACK.
Veteran Flinger Is Likely to Be aa
" * Good In Spring as of Yore.
Whether or not Cy Young has ceased
to bi > a col.l weather pitcher Is one of
the questions that are bothering Man
ager Jim McGuIre of the Cleveland
Americans a little. Until last year Cy
was considered one of the best cold
weather pitchers In the country. Bos
ton always figured on using him often

n the spring while the other twlrlera
were waiting for the warmer temper
ature. Almost invariably he pitched
the opening game for the Hub , and
tie generally won it also. Ills famous no-
liit-no-inan-reach-tlrst-baso game was
played May 55.
Last season , however , Cy pitched
some bad ball In the spring and also
bad some mighty poor luck in failing
to have bis team play behind htm. His
best work was done hi the hottest
weeks of the campaign. According to
that dope , McGuire would be right In
aving Cy until the chilly'breezes are
a thing of the past. But the leader
of the Naps lias a hunch that Cy may
come back this spring and show some
of bis Boston form. The chances are
that Cy will decide the question him
self. If he is right when the season
opens he will ask McGuire to work
him. If not he will be content to
wait 11 la Bill Donovan until the salary
wing thaws out under a broiling sun.
HIT-RUN STYLE CHANGED.
Modern Clubs Do Not Play Same Sys
tem as Originators.
No play In baseball is made a mess
of more than what is known as the
"hit and run. " The originator of this
system of play had in mind an action
which would ordinarily assure the run
ner of advancing and at the same time
Increase the chances of the batsman
of getting the ball into safe territory.
It was played with this In view by the
old Baltimore team , but nowadays the
only time it Is successful is when the
batsman makes a clean base hit.
When playing the hit and run tbto
batsman Is not supposed to swing harden
on the ball. He should shove it through
tbo place which cither ono of the Infielders -
fielders has just left in an effort to
cover the bag for which the base run
ner has started , yet nowadays one sel
dom sees a batsman trying to make
this play , for he swings with all bib
