EXTRA!! EXTRA!! POLYGON CLUB DEFEATS LIONS CLUB An estimated crowd of approximately 5,000 loyal Baseball Fans (300 pais admissions) saw those terrific clouting, sure-fielding Polygon Baseball Night Hawks defeat those ferocious Lions by the score of 6 to 1. The dazzling pitching by Eddie Cross was too much for the Lionmen. The sensational fielding of "One chaw of tobaccy" Friend out in Centerfield and "Long Stretch" VanDyck on firstbase robbed the Lionmen of several hits. Sturtevant and Wilkinson completed the game in a deadlock for strikeout honors--both having three strikeouts for four times at the bat. Joe Bowen and Eddie Radcliffe received honorable mention as All-American batboys. Bowen received quite a hand from the crowd when he lost his pants and had to make a hurried dash to the club-house.
