were high. Then we went out into faster
the games with them.
Later, we took on Gastonia for a
four-game series, and they won four.
Of course we can console ourselves with
the fact that they beat both Charlotte
and Columbia, and they were in the pro
fessional class. Erlanger was another
disappointment to local fans. We always
played them close, but never managed to
get enough runs to win.
Mount Gilead proved a tough nut ,to
crack. They didn’t look like ball play
ers; they threw the ball around like a
crowd of school, boys; but every once
in a while a long tall guy would slam
one to the fence, and two or three runs
would come in. We did beat them unmer
cifully on Labor Day; but they won the
Troy. Rockwell, and Winston-Salem
team and Albemarle w'ere our victims.
Undoubtedly the continual changing, in
the endeavor to locate a winning combina
tion, proved our undoing. Man for man,
the Badin players are as good as most of
those who came here to play us. Behind
the bat. Rees was. the mainstay. He
was in the game all the time, helped
much in steadying the team, batted well,
and was fast on bases. His pegging
was good, too. Younts caught several
games, and was very well liked. His
batting was above the average, and his
throws to the bases the prettiest seen
here this season.
Of pitchers there were many. Efird
went on most of the road' trips, and
pitched gqod ball in the main; but on
the days when he was at his best the
team blew up, and when the tieam was
going good he had off days.
York bore the brunt of the pitching,*
however. In the first half of the season,
he won the majority of his games, los
ing two one-hit games, and coming in
as relief pitcher on several occasions.
Later, Efird pitched most of the games.
The two Austins went fairly well.
Swift showed up well, but only worked
in two or three games.
