They came with some money in their pockets, which by the way they left hefe, streamers in their hats, tin horns and a few with trombones in their noses to cheer the players on. Five hundred rooters trudged sor. rowfully to the station alter the same, sans money, sans horns and streamers, sans everything, regretting regretting that they had ever ventured so farTfrom ihe bucolic village of Kokomo. Kokomo. They proceeded to tear great holes in the pure free ozone as soon as they arrived and tbe first half of the game was enlivened by discordant discordant sounds and the manager of tbe Kokomos sat down on the bench to figure out the per cent of the gate receipts which would fall to the winners. winners. Before the end of the second half, however, he figured on the smaller end of the profits. The Kokomo Kokomo players ate all right in their own town, but they can't keep up •with the procession here, There were fully fifteen hundred people m attendance, -by far tho largest crowd yet seen on the local grounds. The fact that the visitors claim to have one of the strongest teams in the state and that Staats and Lyen formerly of the Logans- ports are now with them attracted the immense crowd. Both clubs had their playing :lotbes on and the contest was full of go trom start to finish. Crosby was in the box and pitched an excellent excellent game. He has speed to throw away and wten he drew back his long right arm and let out a tack or two the ball would shoot over the plate like a cannon ball. Tbe Ko- komokes stepped up and back, occasionally occasionally one got an excursion ticket to "first, but the ticket failed to carry them further than second or third. Only two men had sufficient sufficient mileage to get home, Lyen for the visitors was not at all slow and held the Ottos down so well that they were obliged to be content with three runs. The Ottos went to bat Brst and drew a blank with good grace; the Kokomos did the same and the second and third innings closed without a mark for either side. Byers got to first on balls in the fourth and by good head work scored before the visitors came to bat. The joy over the lead was short-lived as the Kokomo lads made two runs in the last half of the fourth. Nothing was produced in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings, and with Crosby and Horsley out in the eighth, Logansport stock was not at a premium. Byers picked out a good,tough stick at this stage, and with a "Casey at the bat,'' air faced "Denny." He met the first ball for a three-bagger. Bruton followed with single, and Byers came over the rubber with a tie score. Before the cheering bsd subsided, Bolan joined issues with a hot upshoot for a two-bagger, and Brnton galloped to the plate ahead of the ball. Hackett flew out, and the Kokomos were given a goose egg in their half. Neither side scored in the ninth and the game closed 3 to 2 in favor of the Ottos, of course. 123456789 Ottos 0 0010002 0-3 Kokomoes -0 0020000 0-2 The Ottos will play at Kokomo Tuesday and Wednesday, Rockville Thursday and Friday and then return. return.
