BARNES VIIjLE DEFEATS FORSYTH
A Good Game of Batel>till was Wit
nessed Here Thursday.
The Barnesville baseball team
met the Forsyth team here Thurs
day afternoon and defeated them
by a score of 15 to 5.
The game started promptly at
8:80 o’clock, and after the first
few innings it was clearly shown
that the Forsyth team was up
against the “real thing” and
would have to work hard to escape
being shut out. It was thought
at first that it would bea pitchers
battle but Maynard, the Forsyth
pitchier, was fanned all over the
field and for two home runs. Nor
man’s pitching for the locals was
decidedly the feature of the game,
having struck out 18 men and al
lowing only 8 base hits. Norton,
the cracker-jack catcher who re
ceived Norman’s swift curves,
caught a fine game and handled
the sticks in great form.
Every player on the Barnesville
team played fine ball and batted
The score by innings was as fol

farmer living near Lamont,

radish. It was simply immense,
and it was so big that it did not
look like a radish. It was 24 in
ches long und 22 inches in circum
ference, and people looked at it in
astonishment. It was on exhibi
tion at the post office for several
days and attracted the attention
Itarnesvllle tit Griffin 4.
The third nine of baseball play
ers of Barnesville met the third
I nine from Griffin Wednesday
I afternoon and defeated them in a
nice game by a score of 10 to 4.
The Griffin boys were much
larger than the home boys but
could not play ball like the
youngsters and came very near
being shut out, as the change of
pitchers by the Barnesville boys
gave them their runs.
The third team is composed of
boys between 10 and 15 years of
age and will play any team in
the state composed of boys not
over 15 years of age.
