Double boneheads are rare In base- ball--scarcer than hens' teeth, and naturally so. for the completion of a bonehead requires vigilance and quick thinking by the opposition. Still. dou- ble concretes happen ever and anon. the most famous one possibly being that pulled by Cozy Dolan and Harry Gessler at Chicago several years agx). On thls occasion Dolao bad reached second In the ninth, and one was down. the score at the time being In favor of the Cubs by a one run mar- gin. The next batter hoisted a long fly over center field. Gessler grabbed the ball and. deciding that It was the third out. tucked the ball In his pock- et and flew for the clubhouse. Dolan, instead of taking advantage of the break to score the tying run. also figured that it was the third out and followed Gessler across the field. while a raving mob of players from both teams, surrounding them. tried to impress the horror of the situation upon them. Attic Herman finally took the ball away from Gessler. chased Dolan to the clubhouse and made the putout at the edge of the bathtub. That was the richest double break on record. but there have been a few others al- most as funny. ie !IS GOOD Full weight and fair treatment of our customers is bring results.
