Mother of Star Hurler Says Com­ing May Be De­layed By Play-Offs.

Whit­low Wy­att, Cedar­town’s No. 1 base­ball ace, and star hurler for the Mil­wau­kee Brew­ers, will prob­a­bly re­turn to his Cedar­town home this week, his mother, Mrs. J. C. Wy­att, told The Stan­dard to­day. In the event that the Brew­ers win the Shaugh­nessy play­off be­tween the first four teams in the Amer­i­can As­so­ci­a­tion and thereby go into the “Lit­tle World Se­ries” against the win­ner of the In­ter­na­tional League, Wy­att’s home­com­ing may be de­layed un­til next week, his mother said.

Wy­att, top pitcher in the As­so­ci­a­tion, won his 23rd vic­tory of the sea­son last Tues­day night against the league-lead­ing St. Paul Saints and has been the big­gest rea­son for Mil­wau­kee’s main­tain­ing its third-place berth in the As­so­ci­a­tion flag chase. The big right-han­der has al­ready been sold to the Brook­lyn Dodgers, of the Na­tional League, for a re­ported pur­chase price of $20,000, plus two play­ers.

Next year will be Wy­att’s first trial in the Na­tional League cir­cuit. Pre­vi­ously he has played in the Amer­i­can League with Detroit, Chicago and Cleve­land.

Re­cently Mil­wau­kee cel­e­brated “Whit­low Wy­att Night” dur­ing which the Cedar­town boy was pre­sented a gi­ant trac­tor for his Buchanan farm by the Mil­wau­kee Ju­nior Cham­ber of Com­merce. Un­daunted by all the fan­fare, Wy­att went ahead to beat the Toledo Mud­hens, 9-0, for his 20th vic­tory of the sea­son and his ninth shutout of the year.

Wy­att will spend the win­ter with his wife on his farm near Buchanan. Two months ago the Wy­att’s cel­e­brated the birth of a daugh­ter, Bar­bara Jane. “Whit­low says he is yet un­de­cided about mak­ing her into a pitcher,” the grand­mother laugh­ingly as­serted.
