THE KANSAS CITY SUN, SATURDAY, JUNE 5, 1920. BASEBALL-SPORT-MUSIC-THEATRICALS Local Fans Swamp Association Park Day After Day to See Local Games. Uy Chas. A. Starks. At last Negroes ot this town have been made to realize the tremendous and bubbling enthusiasm for clean sport and amusement that really dom- . Inates them. We Colored Kansas Cltlans, though credited with being progressive In somo lines, havo been criticised for our lack of accommoda' tlons In these wholesome and vivify' lng things. But we can now meet this criticism and shout that we are In the swing. No more will we de pend on the vacant lot or the old Pa rade grounds for their products of the American game, we can all go to a regular park and see the top notch goods delivered by men of color. We think this the greatest thing about the WESTERN CIRCUIT OF NEGRO NATIONAL LEAGUE in that It 1m- Tho KANSAS CITY MONARCHS, famous at once, represent us, and have already become the pride of lo cal fans, both colored and white. To bo brief, they have 'em. Are Kansas Cltlans Interested In Negro Baseball Wo should say so. Only "Interested" Is a mild term, let us rather say that they are wild over It. They've gone crazy about It, daffy, loco or some other something, not to exhaust tho vocabulary ot ad jectives . These fans followed the MONARCH'S games with big time concern during their recent trip to Belolt, St. Louis, indlauapolls and Chi cago. where they played ball In grand style, taking a fair percentage of games. The Black Kings opened up the home Berles last Saturday. Local fans made It a gala day, the Inevit able street parade, 'everything. A big crowd was in attendance. Saturday's Game. Was taken by the A.

Sunday's Game was characterized by Donaldsuon be ing on the mound for the homo boys, and ho was effective too, holding his opponents to meager and scattered hits. The Monarchs found Mlsmukes early In tho fourth session and "C. I." pulled him for Charleston, the brilliant centerflelder,- who finished the game, not without netting the Monarchs two more runs, however, and tho game. There was a record breaking crowd .o see this game. Some estimate it at 10,000 people, some more or less. Score by Innings. A. B. C's 1 00020000 3 .Monarchs 100720000 10 Batteries A. B. C's..

Monday's (Decoration Day) Game started off in regular one-two-three crder so far as blanking each other In scores was concerned. Neither an! alphabet nor a king crossed the home plate until the fourth Inning, when the visitors scored one. Big league ball was maintained clean up to the sixth period, when the kings found their batting stride, and incidentally Dictah Johnson, who had been hurling excellent ball for the Alphabets. Eight runs were scored In the sixth Inning by these hard-hitting K. C. boys. The audience was well pleased with Cur rle's work on the mound. His com posed and leisurely style inspired con fidence. There is something masterly about this Monarch that Is very strik' lng. ho might be unflatteringly call ed the pitcher with the perfect de livery. Add to that plenty of speed and a liberal variety of curves and you have our local mound star. Though Currle had the game well In hand, he was nevertheless pulled In the first half of the seventh. Of course the fans did not understand the reason for this move, and when the A. B. C's. begun to score In the seventh they grumbled. The visitors scored five In this round, and things got doubly interesting. Blackburn, Crawford and Donaldson succeeded on the mound, but finally won out to the tune of eight to seven. There was timely walking of Pinch-hltters on both sides. Carr. the Monarchs sec ond baseman, made one of those im possible catches In the sixth Inning to the electrification of all fans.
