Bakolite Garnet To Be 1 Ruled On Friday Night, Rain Prevents Cnntest The New Jersey Terra Cotta- i Perth Amboy Dry Dock* baseball ' toirest »at postponed last night be iai se of rail.. This game probably will be Jlryetl in the near future, inasmuch as the two combinations are tied for leadership in the league at the present time. It is probable that the game be tween the Bakelite-Perth Amboy Hardware teams scheduled for to night. will be played on the Won derland Park grounds ar.d that .ail future games in the industrial league will be stag'd on this field. At the meeting of the team rep resentatives in the Y. M. C. A. on Friday night, the playing field mat ter probably w.ll be taken bp as well a.t the recent performaocvr of the Bakelite te-n Last Fridar night the Bakelite outfit defeated the Perth Amboy Dry Dock team by a 2-1 score in an eleven tuning con test, and on Monday night the New Jersej Te a Cclta team bowed -o the BakeUtes to the tune cf a 3-4 score. Both games, however, the only victories gained by the Bakelite team in this circuit were protested before the start of the game be-1 cause of the tact that the B-ikelPe team used unregistered players. For the interest of the league It might be a good Idea for fl.e re present. - tlves to count these games :n lav >r of the Bakelite tear/ U r with this lineup the Bakelite outft can fur nish interesting opposition to all other organizations in tbe circuit. With the Bakeiite team using its present lineup, the Perth Amboy iiardware combination is the only team entered in the circuit which might be considered outclassed by the other entries, and If this team could be strengthened in some way, it would be for the good of the league. Previous to the recent perform ances of the Bakelite team, when ever the Hardware or Bakelite teams were scheduled to play, llttls interest was taken in the games be cause the result was known before the game was started. Closer Junkirs Booking Games with any light junior teams are desired by the Clover juniors. I. on Is Horner. 303 Washington street, is manager. Teams averaging from IS to 15 years are preferred.
