Two games of base ball were played
on the West End diamond on the
fourth: .ne in the morning and one in
The first game was between the
Fats and Leans. It was a very
laughable game from start to finish.
Home runs were made on passed
balls. Very few struck out. No one
was called out unless he was touched
with the ball. Sometimes the player
would run all over the ground and get
to his base. The umpire made his
.wn rules. The score was 13 to 13 in
favor of the Fats.
The afternoon game was an inter
esting ine in which Lydia team, of
Cln-,n. crossed bats with West End.
There was a large attendance from
both mills: also quite a number of vis
it rs frt )m Clinton. The umpire wish
es to say that he congratulates the
teams for the good behavior of the
players. There was not a decision
rendered but what was satisfactory on
both sides. For fear there will be a
mistake in the base ball teams, of
Newberry, this team which played
here on the fourth is the West End
base ball team and not the college
team which disbanded a few weeks
ago. The mill can play ball too.
