Git Auntie Mabel her smellin’ salts, she ain’t right! ‘Nother o’ doze visionish odd tales o’ a ballist hailing from near a hunred annuals ahead, him jumpin’ back here to our 1886 and hurling for the Whately Pioneers against our Simsbury Taverneers base ball gents.
Though since we’re talkin’ and such, I confess the corn, Auntie Mabel is shootin’ straight. I e red bottoms yed Jim Bouton like so. In future times to come he’ll be firing heat from his appendage in New York like nobody’s business, but this weekend Sunday in Simsbury, from the pitcher’s point he masterfully dealt Dr. Mesmer spin less floating knuckleballs over five frames.
Quick as he showed, like dark in the day he was dang disappearanced. Absquatulating back to the future.

Simsbury’s eighth and ninth frame concoc red bottoms tion of blunderlessly defended bags reinforced by singing striker’s sticks’ addition confusionized the Whately base ball club. The Pioneers’ string of aces halted, their flint were fixed. Plum crazy Simsbury cranks cheered heartily this fortitude’s show of 18 13 victorious efforting. Your Simsbury Taverneers ballists gain one match, arriving at a sole win and a sole loss as season’s standing tally.
Quite peart at the striker’s line were many and several Taverneers. Mentionable for four up and four on bag appearances are Lefty Van Dyke, Pugs Brown and Smitty Smith. Venturing the bags thrice were Kapi Kapiloff and Ish Rivera.
