Baseball Joe in the World Series: Pitching for the Championship

Baseball Joe in the World Series : Or Pitching for the ChampionshipWhen the gong rang, the Giants started out as though they were going to sew up the game then and there.?Burkett set the ball rolling with a wicked drive through the box that got past Roth before he could gauge it. Larry followed suit with a smoking hit to left. A prettily placed sacrifice bunt by Denton advanced both men a base. Roth struck out Willis on three pitched balls, but Becker came to the rescue with a line drive over second that scored Burkett easily, though Larry was put out as he made a great slide for the rubber.?The net result was only one run, but the most encouraging feature of the inning was the exhibition of free hitting.??Three clean hits in one time at bat is going some,? Robson exulted.??The boys seem to have their batting clothes on for fair,? responded McRae, vastly pleased.??I doubt if that bird will come again for more,? judged ?Robbie.? ?They?ll probably take him out and put Fraser in.??Joe was in fine fettle, and he showed his appreciation of the lead his mates had given him by retiring the Red Sox without a man seeing first base.?Contrary to Robson?s prediction, the Boston manager elected still to pin his faith to Roth, who tightened up after his bad start and for the next three innings held the Giants scoreless.?He was helped in this by the superb support given him. Both the outfield and infield were on their toes all the time, and drives that ordinarily would have gone for hits were turned into outs in dazzling fashion.?One magnificent catch by Thompson, the Red Sox catcher, was the feature of the fourth inning. Iredell, who was at bat, sent up a sky-piercing foul. Thompson, Hobbs and Roth started for it.??I?ve got it, I?ve got it!? yelled Thompson.?The others stopped and Thompson kept on.?The ball swerved toward the Boston dugout, where the substitutes and extra pitchers of the team were sitting.?A shout of warning went up, but Thompson did not falter. With his eye on the ball and his hands outstretched, he plunged ahead.? He grabbed the ball in a terrific forward lunge and went head over heels into the dugout, where his comrades caught him and saved him from injury. But he still clutched the ball as he was put on his feet, and a tempest of applause went up in which even the Giants and their partisans could not help joining.

Bessie and Her Friends

Excerpt from Bessie and Her Friends Almost time, Jennie, answered Mrs. Richards, looking up from the face of the baby upon her lap to the clock upon the man tel-piece. A very pale, tiny face it was; so tiny that Sergeant Richards used to say he had to look twice to be sure there was any face there; and that of the mother which bent above it was almost as pale, sick, anxious, and worn but it brightened, as she answered Jennie. It is five minutes before six; he will be here very soon now. Away ran Jennie to the corner, where stood a cane-seated rocking-chair, and after a good deal of pushing and pulling, succeeded in drawing it up in front of the stove; then to a closet, from which she brought a pair of car pet slippers, which were placed before the chair. I wish I was big enough to reach farber's coat and put it over his chair, like you used to, morber. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Bessie at the Sea-Side

"[...]that are upon it, that you would not fly off into the air and keep on falling, falling, for no one knows how many miles. It is too hard a thing for you to understand much about now, but when you are older you shall learn more. But we have had a long enough lesson for this morning. We will walk about a little, and see if we can find some shells before we go in to breakfast." They found a good many shells: some little black ones which Maggie called curlecues, and some white on the outside and pink inside. Then there were a few which were fluted, which the children said were the prettiest of all. They thought the beach was the best playground they had ever seen, and they were about right. First, there was the strip of smooth, white sand, on which the waves were breaking into beautiful snowy foam, with such a pleasant sound; then came another space full of pebbles and stones and sea-weed, with a few shells and here[...]".
