ARTICLE
Dennis Played Base Ball
Jim Dennis of Farmers Branch was in Carrollton doing some trading Wednesday and during a conversation with him we learned that he lays claim to spending seventy years on this mundane sphere and all of them right here in Dallas county. he is well preserved and does not show that age. When we proposed that he take us to St. Luis in his Willys car and to the opener of the World Series he told us of his baseball days in the earlier part of his life. He loves the game and was a real player himself in those times, being pretty good at the bat. He recounted a couple of games played at Sherman, at the time he quit playing. In the game there were three men on base when he came to bat and he kno9cked a homer. They pounded the Sherman pitcher for a glorious victory. He objected to Sunday playing and so quit the game. We learned during the conversation that Mr. Dennis was a bother of Rev. Charley Dennis, a friend of ours of many years standing.
