Brevard Boy* Run Around Diamond
26 Times and Keep Freeh —
All Team Play Good Ball.
The Hendersonville Eagles went
down in utter defeat before tiie Bre*)>
vard boys in a game of baseball on
the local diamond last Saturday after
noon. The score was 26 tp 4.
Some of the Eagles played good
ball, but there seemed to 1^ a lack
of team work in their organization^
with fatal results. Dissatisfaction
with their pitchers brought about so
many changes on the mound that it^
would be hard to say who really
pitched for the visiting team.
' A marked feature of the game waa-
batUng and running — on the Bre
vard side. It was evident after the
first inning or two that the Eagles
were hopelessly outclassed. Keep
ing the Brevard score became a rath
er tedious affair, losing some in in

The crowd of citizens who congre
gated in the shade of the oaks or sat
in autos were convinced that Brevard
has a fine team, needing only a little
practice to be able to handle eagles,
lions, tigers, or any other animals that
.they may meet. Every nttfn on the
team played a good game and proved
his fitness for the job.
Follo^ng was the line-up:
Hendersonville: Brock c. Smith lb,
B. Bradley 2b, Brookshire 3b, Rhodes
