HORSESHOES

danger of a busker beatin' him out; but Zimmerman goes and breaks his leg the second day o' the season-that's a year ago last April-and Speed jumps right in as a regular. Do you think anything like that could happen to Schulte or Leach, or any o' them outfielders? No, sir ! I wore out my uniform slidin' up and down the bench and wonderin' whether they'd ship me to Fort Worth or Siberia.
Now I want to tell you about the miserable luck Speed had right off the reel. We was playin' at St. Louis. They had a one-run lead in the eighth, when their pitcher walked Speed with one out. Saier hits a high fly to centre and Parker starts with the crack o' the bat. Both coachers was yellin' at him to go back, but he thought they was two out and he was clear round to third base when the ball come down. And Oakes muffs it ! 0' course he scored and the game was tied up.
Parker come in to the bench like he'd did something wonderful.
" Did you think they was two out? " ast Hank.
" No," says Speed, blushin'.
" Then what did you run for? " says Hank.
" I had a hunch he was goin' to drop the ball," says Speed; and Hank pretty near falls off the bench.
The next day he come up with one out and the sacks full, and the score tied in the sixth. He smashes one on the ground straight at Hauser and it looked like a cinch double play; but just as Hauser was goin' to grab it the ball hit a rough spot and hopped a mile over his head. It got between Oakes and Magee and went clear to the fence. Three guys scored and Speed pulled up at third. The papers come out and said the game was won by a threebagger from the bat o' Parker, the Cubs' sensational kid third baseman. Gosh !
We go home to Chi and are havin' a hot battle with Pitta'hurgh. This time Speed's turn come when they was two on and two out, and Pittsburgh a run to the good-I think it was the eighth innin'. Cooper gives him a fast one and he hits it straight up in the air. 0' course the runners started goin', but it looked hopeless because they wasn't no wind or high sky to bother anybody. Mowrey and Gibson both goes after the ball; and just as 14Towre3 was set for the catch Gibson bumps into him and they both fall down. Two runs scored and Speed got to second. Then what does lie do but try to steal third-with two out too ! And Gibson's peg pretty near hits the left field seats on the fly.
