The game was n combination of Softball and donkey busting from which few of the players escaped j without lame Johns. "Charley horses" and bruUes. The burros were heralded us trained stars, but their training seemed lo consist of doing the wrong thing al the right time. More often than not a player would hit the ball, leap on his donkey's back and trot off to first base, only to find thai his mount would put his foot everywhere but on the base, with the result that the rider would be thrown out. An outfielder would have a ball land Irs his territory and when lie attempted lo boot his mount Into nction would find himself bwkcd to the ground.
