  • Notes 
    • Another employee of that firm [Cober & Bechtel] was Louis Allendorf, a carriage trimmer who kept the younger generation supplied with little bits of leather out of the scrap box. Lou was short-stop on the Hespeler Ball Team and before the game the kids would take a piece of cedar fence rail to him and with a jack-knife he would trim it down flat like a ruler so we could notch the runs. He would sometimes cut a chunk out of one side instead of leaving both sides the same length and he used to tell us to use the short side to score our runs because Hespeler was not likely to get many runs that day. And that was bad news for us. When Lou threw a man out at first he always got a nice hand from his little friends. Funny, isn't it, how these things stick with one?1a
