     I have come across a term "yeloting," which is apparently not listed in the dictionaries. Is anyone familiar with it? It seems to refer to running of some sort.   It appears in a baseball article in the _San Francisco Bulletin_, May 2, 1913, p.20, col. 5; 'Williams Is Puzzle To Seals' "Cac" [Henley] Easy For Wolves':  On the other hand Henley was touched up for nine safeties, all of a nature to send the Wolves yeloting along on the road toward victory.

    Wolves and coyotes are known for their "yodeling" calls. Could that be the answer?
