South Central League Team cleans up on Amateur Nine

August 19, 1912

STAMPS – The Texarkana team of the South Central League defeated Stamps here today (August 19) in a slow and uninteresting contest: Score 11 to 2.

Anderson started the game for Stamps, but was ineffective and was derricked in the third inning.

Moore went into the box and pitched good ball, being scored on only the seventh, when he went up in the air and allowed seven runs to be put over. Baber, on the mound for Texarkana, was hit freely by the locals, but tightened in the pinches. Miles and Hardy were leading batters of the day. Batteries for Texarkana were Baber and Buster; Stamps, Moore, Anderson and Rotten.
