Local Hifh School Base Ball Team Met De
feat Last Saturday
In one of the best games of ball ever
played on the local diamond the looai
high school base ball team met defeat
at the bands of the Rapid City boys
last Saturday afternoon before a fair
sized orowd of euthusiast fans.
The soore at the end of nine hard
fought innings was five to three in
favor of the visitors. Hunter was on
the mound for the locals for the first
four innings but due to a little wild
ness, whiish is something unusual for
Carl, be was replaoed by Stanley Parks,
who gave an exhibition of pitching
that was simply line, allowing the visit
ors one lone soratoh hit during the
rest of the game and allowing bat one
score in that time. Both boys are
above the average high sohool pltohera
and but for the faot that Rapid City
has a bpnoh of heavy hitters and a
little of the usual base ball laok the
soore would have been even smaller
yet.
This is the first game that the looal
team have lost this season.
