Th- old town was full of boosters in l?o.-, when wo tirtt broke into the Central league, and practically won the pennant the ilr?t year. A lot ot raving buss wt-re developed in 1910 when South Bend won the Cer.tral league Hag under the direction of Ed die Wheeler, but there was never more earnest enthusiasm shown in a baseball way than that which was dis played during tho closing days of the pennant race in the Factory league. And to think that this was created and developed of strictly South. Bend and Mishawaka material. It wa unnecessary to scour the country wide for talent and every member ol the six clubs, with the exception of one player on .a Mishawaka club, was of the home product variety. To think that a little band of fellows a bit sporty inclined can arouse the enthu siasm of practically tho entire popu lation over a little baseball organiza tion tho Factory league has accom plished much. Success of the artistic end league is explained In a few namely, honesty of purpose of the words, by the players, with little or any remunera tion except that of winning a few tro phies at the close of the campaign. Those are the motives which make men light in the world of sport which do not require people long to discov er, who in turn will lend their moral support and create sentiment and en thusiasm, which always spells suc cess. Crowd' of 3..i00 People. However, the general public was considerable time in discovering just what was being brought to and from their doors. Every factory team in the league had its followers in bugs and fans, but not until the last two weeks did the bugs at large appre ciate what a sporting event had been developed in one schedule season of Factory league baseball. For a local ball game to draw about 3,000 people and th day not being even a holiday, for these were the attendance figures for the final Singer-Ball Bands game, is sufficient that the public knew that the Factory league was in existence. In 1910 a Fort Wayne-South Bend Central league game drew over 7,000 people, but this was on a Sunday and nearly 3,000 people came from Fort Wayne to compose that crowd. It must be taken into consideration that two other Factory league games wero in progress at the time of the Singer Ball Band game, which were also well attended, which all goes to prove that the baseball spirit in South Bend la far from dead. Another reason to which can be at tributed the league's success is tho fact that little or nothing was heard from the business end of the organ ization regarding their financial af fairs. The public at large cares little or nothing about the financial end of a ball club, but they are interested in the artistic end of the game only. Tho bugs care little if a club purchas es players for famulous sums in stage money or if any of the clubs have sold or traded players to some other league or club. Yet it cannot bo said that some of the club managers were not always on the alert to spring some little coupe on the public during some of the meetings of the magnates. But better counsel always prevailed and the re sults attained speak for themselves. Scarcely a week passed during the season that the "directors did not meet but what some club did not think it had a grievance of some kind where discussion often assumed the rem blanoo of a Mexican war ofheo. which sometimes drew forth bitter threats. But in the end these men found themselves fichting for eacli other and for the good of the sport and es tablished the best baseball organiza tion that ever graced the city. Showed Fine Spirit. The most prominent feature of the season was the clean manner in which the games wero played. During iho hottest of games the players never forgot they were gentlemen, no mat ter what the difference of opinion. There were no pugilistic encounters nor wordy wars, which always dis gust the spectators, but instead all protests wero carried direct to offi cials, who had the matter in charge. Although the players fought each oth er to the last ditch during the games, the best of friendly feeling prevailed at all times among the players, w-hich is worthy of the hiheM commenda tion. During th first couple of weeks of tne scneaui season lew paid little or any attention to the Factory leagu and during tho season's infancy, by reason of the splendid start the Sin ger club ma'de this club was Imme diately voted the championship. In this there was an error as tho Stude baker club was plugging along splen didly. This gave an impression that the only contenders of the Kowlntr machine men would be the Studebak en4. The surprise of the league was the Ball Band.?, who proved the final con tenders and gave the champions a real tough fight for the honors. And this club deserves much credit. Dur Inf the first couple of weeks of the. season the Ball Bands were hugging the bottom nf the percentage column, thev showing their heei.ss only to the South Bond Chilled Plow Co. team. A little hustling and agressivenesn with a couple of small deals, tho man agement of this club had a t am that compared very favorably with the best of them in the 'eaeue. ,,nd the grand rush thoy mad" at the v w ire will live loner in the memory' of local baseball bus. Just what the future has in store for the Factory league i3 a matter of conjecture. There is no doubt but what the organisation will be contin ued, but it is quite certain that it will bo conducted on an even Inrer scabs in the future. Already several appli cations are on tile with Pres. Dailey of the league, and others of the city's largest Institutions have declared their Intention of a'lliatir.g with the league next year. So it is jus: possi ble that 1014 will s. e a wonderful lit tle baseball league of strictly South Bend product and the people can look forward to a fine seanon of sport as well as fun for the next so i son. There have been a lot downs in outh Bend In way, both artiM.Valiy and but thert- has nevt-r been
