Lineville Will Have Ball Club -- Officers for 1925 are Selected at Pep Meeting
At a band concert and baseball meeting held in May's hall Monday evening, it was unanimously decided that Lineville should have a ball club this year. After a band concert short talks were made by Manager Logan, Chas. Davis, Happy Hawkins and Mayor Varney. Officers were elected. Manager Logan being re-elected, Chas. Davis, assistant manager and M. C. Lane, Secretary and Treasurer. Several members of the 1924 Club including "Kid" Bryan, Evan "Jack" and "Skeet" Molleston, Jimmy Moore, Morris and Carl Lane and George Greenlee were on hand. Most of these boys will be in the 1925 line-up. Several of them have had experience in minor leagues and they are all real ball players. Several recruits who will take part in a number of spring training and exhibition games, were on hand including, Lyle Laughlin, Bill Cunningham, Slim Pryor, Emery Belvel, Donny Petty and others. Some of these boys stand a chance to make the team and should they show up good, Manager Logan will use them. Word has been received from Bryan Adkisson of Trenton, Mo., slugging first baseman, that he is ready also. Dale Linn of Ravanna and Red Carrolton and Johnny may be added to the line-up. Asst. Manager Davis has written these boys to come for a try out. Harlely Petty, slugging out-fielder, may be with us again this year and possibly Fred Greenlee, now attending school at Ames. A letter is also out to Ray McKinney and Dale Viers, both on the hurling list last year. These pitchers together with George Greenlee, should strike fear into the hearts of would be Babe Ruth's in this section during the coming season. Everyone boost for a winning ball club.
