Badin Plays Sumter
The Badin boys journeyed to Sumter,
C., last Friday, to play the fast Sum-
Club two games, but due to one of
^he cars breaking down several times
unable to reach Sumter in time to
play the first game. One of the cars
abandoned about forty-eight miles
Sumter, and half of the club trav-
®^6d the rest of the distance in the car
^hich in no way gave trouble, and the
alance railroaded to Hartsville, sixteen
^iles distant, where they remained for
night. They left Hartsville the next
Corning, and reached Sumter at ten a.
In spite of all the mishaps and
ii'esome ride and lack of sleep, the boys
a good account of themselves by
0 ding the Sumter boys to one run in
innings. York pitched a wonderful
^arne, and in face of receiving a hot
® on the leg from a line drive in the
inning he continued and pitched the
^ game, allowing Sumter but five hits
one run. Harris got a beautiful
1‘ttl^ fourth inning, and with a
e more luck it might have netted
more than it did.
, the boys gave a good account of
^ emselves, even Miller removing his
oes on the return trip so that in step-
into a watermelon patch no one
^ould hear him.
little bit of luck next time, and the
oacon will be ours.

^ound third in old league style. We
also glad to see the Count Harris
back on first.
In the second game, the visitors found
that they were absolutely helpless
against our old veteran right hander,
Interest in the game died early, for
it could easily be seen that with the
confidence gained the day before, Badin
would find Granite Falls easy. Jones,
the visitor’s twirler of the day before,
took the mound, but he didn’t last long,
and his successor was very little better
against the heavy hitting of the Badm
On the whole, the game was slow and
uninteresting. Badin played a good
game, and by far had the visitors out-
