In a fast and furious contest at
Makaweli Sunday afternoon the J.
A. C. baseball team won out by a
nose from the home nine, the
score being 3 to 2.
It was the opening game of the
season on the Waimea side, and
an immense crowd of fans show
ed up to witness it. Many Japa
nese were present. The fact that
the Japanese team was new in the
league doubtless attracted others,
who wanted to see what kind of
ball they would put up.
The Japanese were first to bat.
Neither side scored in the .first two
innings, and the Makawelis began
to feel like thev had struck some
thing tough. This suspicion was
accentuated m the third, when the
Japanese got two men over the
plate. -Then, however, the Ma
kawelis got busy and also put two
men across, tying the score.
From that point to :he end of
the ninth inning the game was
held down and no runs were made.
