Pppo. Phoenix Hotel
The Athletic Council of the University announced at its recent meeting that it had secured the services
of Cy Barger, former Transylvania
star and 'now well up in baseball circles, to act as diamend mentor for
the Cats next season. Barger succeeds Coach Jim Parks, who is devoting all his time to the Lexington
Club of the Blue Grass League.
Barger was a member of the famous Barger and Barger battery at
Transylvania years ago and gained
quite a reputation at the school.
Barger is now playing in the Southwill continue to

do so until after the collegiate year is
ended, either as manager or player.
Coach Barger will arrive in Lexington some time in the near future
to take up his work and will probably
issue a call for pitchers and catchers
immediately after his arrival. He will
have quite a bit of work ready for
him as the 1923 team will be made up
almost entirely of new men.
Barger is a native Kentuckian,
claiming Columbia, Ky., as the place
he hangs his hat.
