LOU IN FORM AS
Concord, Manager Hurls Fine
Game in Initial Game of
Season at Webb Field. —
Hoard Hits Home Run.
By RADIO KIiVG
Old Jupiter PltiVius wept copiously
Saturday afternoon in effort to spoil
the initial game of the current base
ball season at Concord’s new, swell
athletic park—Webb field, but all in
vain. Jupe’s wet act was over in
time to permit the ceremonies attend
ing the inaugural game at the Weaver
domicile to go uninterrupted, and Con
cord forced the Statesville Hustlers
to bow to a 6 to 6 defeat with Man
ager C. Manly Lewellyn on the mound.
Did that Lindy Lou pitch? Fans,
he could not have been better when
he hooked ’em down the alley for the
now Ruth-Gehrig Yankees. That slen
der, jovial Weaver manager gave the
Hustlers the heebee jeebies with his
red-hot shoots of assorted kinds. He
had Statesville doing the three-up and
three-down for the most part. Not
until the ninth did the Hustlers tally,
and this may be described honestly as
more or less a set-up.
A large audience, despite the threat
ening weather, watched Lindy Lou
and his Weavers pile up their third
successive win of the season over
Statestille, and incidentally account
for Cdneord’s fourth consecutive vic
tory ih as many starts. Included
among the enthusiastic fans were a
number of ladies. True, the fair sex,

r the gallon of ice cream was donated

[ A flock of gifts were offered for
the first triple in the Saturday exhi

able to sock the apple for exactly

i number of presents were also offered
-for an unassisted double play but a
: double of this variety was not exe
s cuted Saturday. Perhaps, these pres
) ents stand good until an unassisted
play is recorded.
Besides winning the spoils for his

While Lindy Lou was holding

making things hot for Lefty Poole,

began to rap his offerings lightly in

this frame. Another tally was added
in the fifth when Miller scored on
