On Sunday the home team crossed bats with the Hayes team. The game was one well played and was close and exciting until the eighth inning when the Hayes team pounded out eight runs, winning the game 13 to 6.
The battery for Schleswig was Schroeder, Koontz and Jepsen; for Hayes Curry and Fobes. This makes a game apiece for these two teams and the next one will be waited for anxiously as it will no doubt be good, the teams being very evenly matched.
On Wednesday the advertised Hopkins Bros. Lady Ball Team of Des Moines crossed bats with the home team in a well played game. From the first the result was easily foreseen, the local team taking a lead in the first inning and keeping it thruout the game. The home team was assisted by Faul and Freed of Denison who did the battery work. The rest of the team was local talent and the boys deserve credit for the good game they put up.
Miss Fay pitched for the Bloomers for part of an inning but was knocked out of the box. A man pitcher was them put in but he shared a like fate. "Smoke" Madigan, an ex-Puebelo southpaw pitcher was then put in the box and, tho batted rather hard at times, stayed the rest of the game. Clark of Denison umpired the game.

This was a close score considering the fact that it was the first time that several of the home team had ever seen an indoor baseball. This game was played on a much smaller diamond than baseball, but the general principals of the game were the same. Madigan and Reeves were the battery for the girls, Schultz and Vaughan being the battery for the locals.
