In his early twenties Masterson was serving as an army scout out of Sweetwater, Texas. He got in a fight over a dancehall girl. As a result his adversary was killed with a bullet thru the heart, and the luckless girl died as well. Masterson was badly wounded in the leg, which caused him to limp thereafter.
Because of this Masterson took to using a large silver knobbed cane to assist his stride. When he took up his trade of being a Peace Officer, the cane was often used on an unruly cowboy’s head. In recognition of the new sport of Baseball, he was nicknamed Bat; because of his “batting” of skulls with his walking stick.
Bat was a friend to Luke Short, Charley Bassett, the Earp’s, and Doc Holliday. He was often seen in his later years at boxing matches in the New York area, as a sportswriter for the New York Morning Telegraph.
