FAST ECHO BALL CLUB TAKES INTEBESTING
Not Entitled To Single Score But Manage To Squirm Around
Bases Often Enough To Win-Return Game To Be
Played At Echo Tomorrow.
Giving their pitcher good support
in the pinches, the Echo ball team
held the locals to two runs and won
... the game last Friday by a margin of
three runs. The score book should
- really have showed a shut-out in favor
of Heppner, as all of Echo's rus were
' the results of errors or passed balls.
The first three men to face the local
pitcher whiffed the breezes and retired
in order. Heppner had men on the
-, bases the first inning but failed to
score. In the second inning Chas.
'Hoskins, the Echo backstop, leaned

out was converted into a score when
the return throw went somewhere
within 40 or 50 feet of the catcher.
The next three men didn't even get a
foul. The locals bunched three hits
in the fourth inning and forged to
the front with their only scores of the
game. Dr. McMurdo poled out the
hit that brought in the runners. Echc
came back in the fifth and tied the
score on an error, two stole bases and
a scratch single. Two more innings
passed without a hit or run on eithei
side. Echo scored again on errors ir,
the 8th and in the 9th added two more
on passed balls by the catcher. Th
locals made a valiant attempt to ever
up the score in both the 8th and 9th
but fast work behind the Echo Ditchei

since the game by catcher Manrud oi
Heppner. Ihe boy caught a fairly
good game until his hand was batter

then on it seemed to be difficult foi

all bosh of the rankest sort. This is
the first time that any catcher has
brought out such an excuse for not
being able to hold the ball when tht

the first time in our long basebal

playing anything classed as "dirty'

NOTES OF THE GAME
Umpires Gilbert and Allison handled
the game in fine shape. In fact the
writer has seldom seen such all around
fair decisions on balls and strikes.
Poor umpiring destroys interest in
any game, but there was no interest
lost in this contest from start to

will start at 2:15 o'clock sharp. The

fans who can arrange to go to the
game should be present to lend en-

probably that Ione's fast catcher will
be secured to handle the slants of the
Heppner pitchers and that move will
atrenghthen the whole team considerably.
