Greensboro championship aspirations
were dashed to the ground when the
strong nine touting the colors of Leaks
ville High gained a decisive 12 to 7 vic
tory over the locals in a game staged
at the Memorial Stadium April 27.
Johnny Turner, pride of the local
mound staff, essayed to do the twirl
ing for the localities with Edwards op
posing him on the hillock for the vis

in store for the customers and the stage
seemingly all set for a typical Greens
boro victory with the locals holding a
shade of the best of the argument and
the big end of a 4 to 2 score at the end
of the sixth frame. And then in the
lucky seventh or unlucky, as it were, be
fore the smoke could clear away or the
regulation three men could be retired,
as provided in Mr. Spaulding’s official
set of rules, the lads from down Leaks
ville way had tallied six times. They
scored four more markers in the follow
ing two frames while the locals were
crossing the plate three times.
