Pete Fowden, president of the
local baseball club, and his manager,
Frank Rodgers, working in close
harmony have started building their
1941 team, Mr. Fowden explaining
that while the foundation has hard
ly been laid, the prospects are good.
The two men are scouring the
woods for players, but early reports
on the round-up indicate that the
player problem will be solved from
a local angle as far as possible. "We
will possibly get some young men
from across the continent, but we
first want to give local youths an
opportunity to bid for places on the
team," Mr. Fowden explained. He
has several rookies in mind in and
around Williamston and surround
ing territory, and one has already
been placed under contract By lo
cal players, Mr. Fowden means those
young men in this section of the
State, especially in Bertie, Martin,
Washington and other nearby coun
ties. In the group is Nathan Edmond
son, Robersonville young man who
has the promise *of making some
club a good pitcher.
