-Championship of Greater
Omaha Won When Armours
f . and Longways Meet in
7" ,: . Final Round.
The title of amateur champions of
.Omaha was won yesterday by the
sMurphy-Did-Its when they drove
Manske, ex-Western league pitcher,
- from the box and defeated the Long
ways of Council Bluffs, 7 to 2. Add-
' d to the title was the gate receipts
from four games mounting to
$1,000. , ,
, ' A crowd estimated at 3,500 attend-
ed the championship game between
t the three Greater Omaha - league
learns. As the tension as to whom
-would finally win :f increased the
crowd grew until it was said to be
the largest ever in attendance" at an
- amateur game .between local teams.
' ,t Playing, Off Tie.
r At The closi of the season the
Murphy's, Armours and Longways
were tied." -A six-game playoff, each
team .playing a double header with
the other two teams was then tried
and resulted in another tie. After
& conference- last, week,' yesterday's
' ' .double header was decided upon and
a coin was tossed for playing posi
, tiont. The Armours and Longways
played the first game and the Mur
phys the winners.'
v The -Amours grabbed off a one
run lead in- the second inning which
only seemed to infuriate the Long
ways, who rushed back in, the third
and hammered in five runs which
proved-sufficient to elect them to
play, the second game. . Stillmock
was the unfortunate ' man on the
' mound when the batting rally start--td
and was relieved for the balance
cf the game by League,-who held
the Bluffs boys scoreless. The pack
ers gathered in two more runs in
' the eighth but the lead was too big.

Chicago, Sept. 28. Caesar, as Pat

Conrad Maximilian Flack, Cub out
fielder, is the unfortunate individual
whose error will be remembered as
long as the "hot stove" league meets
to refight former base ball battles,
and he numbers fourth among the
men whose wobbles dissipated their
club's dream of world dominion' in
the field of sport and gained nation
wide attention, Merkle, Snodgrass
and Zimmerman are the other mem
bers of the quartet.
Flack probably will be known as
the "Second Snodgrass." Strangely
enough, his error was perpetrated
on the same field and within a few
yards of where the Giant outfielder
made his historic muff in 1912. It
was even more costly than Snod
grass' bobble, for Fred's merely
paved the way to , victory, while
Flack's let in two runs; winning
runs, in the crucial game of one of
the most bitterly fought series ever
Flack Muffs Drive.
In the third inning of the final
frame Tyler wavered. He passed
Mays an unheard of contretemps
but was able to get Hooper. Again
he crumbled and Shean walked.
Strunk was out and the Cubs took
heart again, when VVhiteman, hero
of the series, sent a long fly to
Flack, whose canny fielding and
mighty arm had proved a distinct
nsset in games gone before. And
Flack muffed. In romped Mays and

It is noteworthy that all three of
the other super-blunders put crimps

Probably the most famous of all
was Merl-Vs "boner" in 1907, not
committed in a world's series, but
which cost the Giants the pettoant
and a chance to try conclusions
with the Athletics, then in their
prime. It was Merkle's failure to
touch second and John Evers quick
comprehension of the bjunder which
gave the Cubs the d&; game
of the series and the pennant. -.
Again in 1912, the failure of "Mc
Graw's legions to play in form com
mensurate with their training cost
them the series. Inthe- eighth game

strength both in the field and at bat,

Heinie Zimmerman, transplanted
from Chicago's west side park to
New York, in 1916 ; completed the
quartet. He classes with Merkle,
in that the error was one of judg
ment, rather thaa being unavoidable.
The plays for both Merkle and Zim
merman are classed by the base ball
public generally as "boners, pure and
simple," while Snodgrass and Flack
are excused in a measure on the
ground that ill-luck is likely to fasten
itself on any ball player, at any time,
inside or outside a) world series.
