He will be in uniform this Sunday, that is, if Jim Morison can find one big enough to fit him. He threw several rounds of batting practice here last Sunday and looked to be in pretty fair shape. ------o------- RAY DOYLE, former Charles Town Legion shortstop who had a shot at pro baseball in the Phillies farm sys- tem, has taken up the insurance business in his home town of Sharpsburg, Md.

IF YOU REALLY want to read something worth while about Little League baseball, then beg, borrow or buy a copy of the August 1st issue of Look Magazine and turn to page 57 and read Sports Editor Tim Cohane's story entitled, "Juvenile Parents Hurt." It's a dandy article and the parents of every Little Leaguer in the nation should read every word of it. Please do... 0 t , HIS FELLOW EMPLOYEES at Uncle Sam's Postoffice in Charles Town, phone us that Woody Walters, chief money order clerk, is spending a few days vacationing this week at Cliffside Motel near John Brown's Town. After pulling the Legion through last Sunday in the ex- citing contes over Staunton and anticipating another real rough one here Sunday when the Stafford Braves invade, the little veteran of many a diamond battle is just plumb played out... BILLY BURKHOLDER, the old New York Giant pitch- ing star who hurled against the Legion last Sunday for" Staunton, said to us, "it's certainly a Shame that more fans do not turn out and help support your fine baseball team. You have one of the best ball parks in the coun- try and it's sad to see that you have such poor support." And we might add, those hundred or so fans who were at Legion park last Sunday, watched one humdinger of a semi-pro baseball struggle... 0 CHARLEY KELLER, JR., son of the one-time New York Yankee slugger who makes his home near Frederick, is leading the Class A Eastern League in hitting with a robust .351 average. He's also the pace-setter in RBI's with 59 and his 11 round-trip wallops place him among the leaders in that department too. His selection for the Eastern League all-star tem a came as no surprise to us. o BILLY BURKHOLDER, the crafty righthander who pitched for the Staunton (Va.) Braves here last Sunday and a chap who has seen a lot of miles in the pro game, was highly complimentary on the work of umpires Bill Lightner and Jim Gozzard. "They seemed to be on every play and kept the game moving along," Bill said. "Then, too, he added, tell me what Umps don't miss 'em now and then, so what. Remember, the players are not always correct . .. they can be wrong also, the veteran hurler declared." OF'TH o ONE E GREATEST figures ever to sink a spiked shoe into a baseball diamond passed away Monday. Tyrus Raymond Cobb. Re ms and reams of copy can be, will be and have been written about the great Ty Cobb. His records will go on and on for a long time to come and his feats will be remembered many, many years. We will never forget the first time we ever saw the great baseball star in action. It was quite a thrill for (our back in those days, young eyes)... He was playing for the Detroit Tigers under Hughie Jennnings and that was around 1919 if our memory still comes to us correctly, tt is certainly too bad that our present day youngsters couldn't have seen Cobb in his prime and in action. 0 AND GETTING BACK to Ty Cobb and the many rail- lions of his supporters everywhere, he had one here in" town who stood out among the others and that is our old friend Frank .Rodgers, who operates the Sinclair station on West Washington Street... Frank called us Monday night and said, Max, tell your readers in your sports col- umn this week that Cobb will always live in my baseball memory as the greatest." Frank has always been an ad- mirer of the great Ty and had the opportunity of watch- ing him in action many times... o THEN, FRANCIS BLACKFORD told us aL the New Central Tuesday morning about the time back in 1919 when he, along with Frank Rodgers and a few other Bar- dane baseball fans went to Washington to see Cobb play. Francis says he remembers that time so very well be- cause it was the first and only time in his life that he has ever walked up and down the Washington monument, every step of the way. . i r i [ i i i ~ i victory. The lone run for the. Indians came in the third frame on one hit. The Yankees collected eight hits off Kite, Jackson and Dorsey with D. Perks and B. Lanham get ting two apiece. On Wednesday, July 12 the Braves battled the Cubs to a 4-3 victory in what was one of the best games of the season. Stevens tossed a one hitter at the Cubs, a single by Wasson in the first frame which scored the first Cub run. Whittington also turned in a fine five hit job for the Cubs, with Hill and B.
