Signing Of Boys
From Cleveland By
League Starts Fuss
Gillespie And Hnrd Lost To Wake
Forest For Football Due To
The following' sport story bv Wade
Ison in the Charlotte News will be
of interest in Shelby and this coun
ty because both of the boys men
tioned came from this county.
Ralph Gillespie was a star base
ball player at Shelby high, while
“Runt” Hord is a native of Kings
Mountain and played at the high
school there. The article follows:
The National Association oi Pro
fessional baseball Leagues shortly
will be formally charged with break
ing Its promise as regards signing
of college athletes by Patrick Mil
ler. coach of athletics at Wake
Forest college, it was learned here
Miller will file the charges with
Hugo Bezdek, head of the National
Coaches association ifootball!, who
also is head mentor at Ppnn State
Two Stars Involved.
Such charges grew out of two
stars of the Wake Forest football
team—Runt Hord. a halfback, and
Ralph Gillespie, an end -failing to
report to the Wake Forest train
ing camp due to a contract Hord Is
under with (he Detroit Tigers and
Gillespie's decision to join the Win
ter school of the St. Louis Cardinals
Both these boys were counted on
heavily by Miller, whose proteges
are dubbed the Demon Deacons and
who represent the Baptist institu
tion of North Carolina.
Miller came to North Carolina
last year as an assistant to Stanley
Cofall after the two had teamed
together for the last nine years in
the coaching business, giving up a
position at Baltimore Loyala to ac
cept the Wake place. Miller Is a
graduate of Fordham university and
has played professional football with
Summers he is life guard at At
lantic City, N. J.
Forbid In East.
“In our section of the country
the pro ball leagues don't dicker
with the collegiates, or if they do,
they bind them to no such con
tracts as involves Hord particularly.
Recently Judge K. M. Landis okay
ed an agreement of the professionals
in which it was stated that no
league, major or otherwise, would
tamper with a college ball player
until his graduation," Miller stated.
"And I believe that this agree
ment holds down here. Anyway, I’m
going to find out from Bezdek when
I file my charges.”
When questioned as to Hord’s
contract, with the Tigers. Miller re
plied that the Detroit scout had
Hord's name to a contract that, pro
hibited his playing football any
where. The youngster has two years
of eligible play as does Gillespie,
at Wake Forest.
Hord is a shortstop and played
that position with the Concord
Weavers, semi-pros during the sum
mer just closed. Young Gillespie is
a catcher and at present is playing
with Reidsville against the Virginia
State semi-pro champions. Neither
has anrxnunced intentions, of re
luming to the Wake campus un
: less their Contracts were doctored by
; the two majors.
