Shelby High Star Looks Good
In Infield Of Asheville Team
Cline Lee Scores And Drives In
Only Runs Against Jersey
Nothing but the loop’s rookie
ruling can keep Cline Owens
Lee, Shelby ball player, from
performing in the Piedmont lea
gue this season. And even the
rookie ruling has a slim chance
of turning that trick.
Yesterday in Spartanburg the
former Shelby high captain scored
and drove in the only runs made by
the Asheville club against George
Toporcer's Jersey City outfit. Afield,
playing against a team on which
were several former major leaguers,
Lee looked as flashy as he did In
high school circles.
In the first inning Lee got on
base and scored the .first of Ashe
ville's two runs. The pitcher he lac
ed in that inning and the third was
none other than Big Bob Walsh,
husky young son of Big Ed Walsh,
of White Sox fame, who is one of
Jersey City’s leading burlers. In the
seventh inning Lee came to bat with
a runner on third, one on first, two
out, and cracked a single down the
first base line to drive in Asheville’s
other run. This time a former
Southern leaguer was hurling for
the fast class A team.
In the fourth and fifth inning,
when the big bats of the Jersey City
players began pounding the horse
htdc Lee handled every chunce fea
turing in a putout On one play a
Jersey City batter drove a bullet at
the Asheville first-sacker. the ball
hit his shins and richoted to the
right where Leo scooped it up and
tossed the runner out.
Manager Ray Kennedy changed
almost the entire team in the eighth
inning, sending Shorty Hawkins,
Belmont boy known here, to second ;
base instead of Lee. As it was, how
ever, the Shelby boy looked better
afield than any of the seven In
fielders used by Kennedy, and he
was the only Asheville player who
did not look foolish at the plate one
time or another.
The rookie ruling may make it
hard for Lee to stick at Asheville
because the Piedmont league regu
lations have it that all clubs must
carry at least four rookies, players
who have never played class ball.
: Lee’s season in the Southeastern
‘rates him as a class B man. Ken
| n<?dy will likely keep two rookie
pitchers, a rookie outfielder and
hopes to have one rookie infielder.
[That means that a rookie will have
[to beat out Hipps at first, Lee at
second, Tarr and Viau at short, or
Breakfield at third All the others
are old timers and Lee may have to
put up the greatest fight. Hawkins,
the big Belmont boy, is the leading
rookie candidate for the second base
job, but so far this year his play has
not equalled that of Lee. It is evid
ent that Manager Kennedy thinks
well of the local lad because he used
him as lead-off man against Jersey
City and in all practice games. In
a practice game between two split
up squads of Asheville players Wed
nesday Lee banged out a triple and
a single. In three exhibition games
he has handled 14 chances without
an error, and two of the chances it,
Spartanburg were of the variety to
bring annlause from the spectators*
