WEST GEORGIA LOSES ONE
AND WINS ONE
At last tho long aAvaited baseball
season at West Georgia College has
opened with two games with North
Georgia College on Friday and Satur
day. April 20 and 21 The first of these
games Avas lost with a score of three
to two. In spite of the defeat this
was an excellent game, considering
tho had Aveather and considering that
It was West Georgia’s first game.
North Georgia brought a well-coach
ed team who had already played two
games prior to competing ivith West
Georgia. North Georgia scored two
runs in the first Inning because of an
error and one-field play. They scored
again on an error Avhich put the man
on first base. He stolo second and
came home on a single. This accounted
for all of North Georgia’s scoring.
They also threatened in the fifth In
ning, but a fast double play cut down
West Georgia’s scoring took plate
in tho sixth inning by an error, a fluke
single, and a double, Avhich drove in two
runs, but they could not score any
more- West Georgia, threatened in the
last, inning by placing men on second
and third. Donald Staples came to
bat and batted a long hit to the left
field. This seemed to be the winning
hit; but Watkins, of N. G- C., after lid
had fallen down, caught the ball for
tho third out and saved the game-
This game Avas a pitcher’s battle be
tween Parker, of W. G. C., and Brown,
of N. G. C. Parker, after the first
two innings, settled down and piteked
mid-season ball. Ho was a bit wild,
but permitted only five hits- Brown
bad good control, and allowed only
six hits, which kept W* G. C. sluggers
The second game Avas won by West
Georgia by a score of eight to three-
W. G. €’h batters began hitting ami
collected twelve hits, which won her
first game of the season. They began
to click, and it seems that they will
mold into a formidable ball team.
N. G* C’s scoring came in the s^ 6 -
ond, sixth, and eighth innings. They
scored the first run, but W. G. C. scor
ed one in the third inning, and put
tho game on ice by sending two men
•across the plate, to make the score
throe to one. They also scored two
runs in the fifth, one in the sixth, and
one in the eighth inning.
Fred Williams pitched splendid ball
fo r W. G. C. giving up only five bits,
striking out eight men and collecting
two hits. Ho lasted well, playing the
entire game, and deserves a lot of
credit. He should become one of W-
G. C’s outstanding pitchers.
As for tho hitters of our team, it
seems that Kelly, the captain, will be
come the leading hitter. • He got three
to five to lead the hitting. Williams,
Davos, and Staples collected two each,
and Webb, Driver, and Entrekin, one
W. G. C. pulled a couple of fast
double plays, which came in to nip a
budding rally. As to the toam, there
is no outstanding star, but as a team
they played well.
W. G. G* succeeded in knocking
Lee, the starting pitcher, who bad: to
be relieved by Brown. Brown pitched
the day bofore.

The college is very much pleased
Avith the outcome of her first two
games- They show what West Georgia
College can do on the baseball field*
The question of whether sha should
have baseball has been discussed from
every possible angle. These four games
prove that the students are back of
this sport, and that the team is one
of the best in personnel.
