The Socking Soccerite
Alexander Lorimer, at one time with the Bethlehem club, gets the Brown derby for the most drastic fine plastered on a player in American soccer and also the sobriquet as the socking soccerite. It seems that Andy took offense to what some spectators chirped in a recent meeting between Fall River and New Bedford and gave vent to his displeasure with a stiff right to the chin of a cash customer. President Bill Cunningham was familiarized with what happened and forthwith socked Andy with a $50 fine and placed him on probation for the remainder of the season. Cunningham scathingly denounced the action of the player, stating that the proper course would have been to call a policeman and ask the removal of the offending fan.
