BASEBALL. The First Game Between Phoe nix and Fort Thomas. The Latter Club Wins by a Score of 18 to 9 Two More Games Yet to Be Played. A good sized crowd attended the park yesterday afternoon to witness the ball game between the Phoenix club and the Fort Thomas bojs. A good deal of in terest was taken in the game for the reason that the Fort Thomas club ia now the declared champion of Arizona, ' having won two out of three games from the Tucson club, which heretofore held the championship. Some of the regular players of the Phoenix nine were absent and some trouble was an ticipated in arranging positions. The game was called at 3 o'clock with the Fort Thomas club at the bat. The visiting club is composed of seasoned players and from the commencement of the game it was plainly seen that the Phoenix bovs were wanting in practice although several good runs were made by the home team. At the end of the game the score stood 18 to 9 in favor of Fort Thomas. An apology will have to be made for not giving the innings, for a special man was sent out to report the game but be ing an enthusiast, was enveigled into joining the ranks of the Phoenix club with the result that he forgot what he was sent for and no report was handed in to this office. The Phoenix nine was composed of the following: Messrs. Pinney, Baum, Stewart, Farish, Lovell, Groff, White head, Lambert, Robinson and Segalia. The Fort Thomes boys are : Messrs. M. Tomlin, pitcher; W. F. Jordan, catcher; A. C. Alexander, car tain an'i first base ; F. Morey, second base ; C. E. Booth, third base ; P. Mav. shortstop ; E. J. Nicole, left field ; H." F. Blevans, center field; J. Slign,an, right field; William Davidson, umpire, and J. L. Alexander, manager. , It has been reported that the Fort Thomas club are all soldiers, but such is not the case, for the club is composed of merchants,! clerks.J school teachers, farmers and operators. The club is making a good record, and since leaving home has played ten games and lost but one. The two games that yet remain to be played will draw good crowds, for the defeat of the Phoe nix club yesterday has aroused base ball enthusiasts and they will attend the game in force today, to cheer on the home team. The Phoenix nine are not by any means bad players, and although they have had but littie time to practice for the game, they do not feel discourged. but will make a strong attempt to win the two remaining games.
