WEST KEOKUK TEAM
REGISTERS COMPLAINT
Says Score Kept by Button Cutte*
Scorer Was Not Correct
One.
The West Keokuk Athletics in a
communication to the sporting editor
of The Gate City, have a bone to picS
with the Button Cutters and the But
ton Cutter scorer, whose handiwork
was printed in The Gate City last
night. The Athletics claim that the
score was made out of whole cloth
and that proper credit was not given
to the West Keokuk players, especial
The two teams are going to fight
it out again on the coming Sunday
and the Athletic® say they are going
to have their own scorer on the
grounds. Following is the communi
cation received:
Sporting Editor:
We notice the Button Cutters, after
their lucky win, have made up a score
and had It printed. Here are some ad
ditional facts. We never batted the
way they had it scored. They never
get over seven hits and they had five
errors. In the score they had none.
And we noticed that they tried to dis
credit our pitcher. He never walked
a man nor had any wild pitches
his credit and did not strike out less
than fifteen men. We believe that
had we not had to play against luck
and a poor unmpire we would have
defeated the Button Cutters easily
Costly errors lost the game and our
pitcher was not hit all over the lot.
We also wish to challenge them for
a game to be played Sunday if they
wish, or any time they say. and wo
will have a scorer. We will not crow
if we win or print a score made up to
suit ourselves and we will also use the
same pitcher and hope they will use
theirs. We also wish to ask them
who the scorer was, and will accept
their challenge through The Gate
City if they so wish.
