Badin Baseball The history of the 1919 Badin Base- Team was not a very fortunate At the first of the season, the ball one- outlook was fairly promising. ‘M: Th, D. O. K. K.

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 three-game series. 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. ®ti>in.). “0 Death, Where is Thy M, ing,» Ooji »» Sid R. V.
