Saturday August 29, 2009 TroyRecord Article 100years ago Sunday, Aug. 29,
1909. “In what The Record calls “an exhibition so weird that fans wept,”
Troy’s New York State League baseball team loses in embarrassing fashion to
the lowly Binghamton Bingoes this afternoon. The Trojans have gone 3-7
since opening their new home on August 19. After using one pitcher
overeighteen innings yesterday,
Troy manager Eddie MURPHY goes through three hurlers in nine innings
today. Starter Len SWORMSTEAD doesn’t make it past the second inning, and Troy
trails 3-0 by the time he leaves the game. Mack ALLISON
makes it through the fourth,but by the time he’s done the Bingoes lead,
9-0. The only bright note on the mound is reliever MUNSON’s five shutout
innings.As for today’s game, “It was advertised as a baseball game,but came as
near representing one as a horse does a giraffe.”
“GOD AS A FATHER.” The Second Presbyterian Church welcomes Rev. David
GREGG,the president of Western Theological Seminary, as a guest preacher
today. The former pastor of Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn
delivers a sermon on “God as a Father”this morning.
