Neighboring Towns Asking for Dates and Expecting Us to Again Have a Strong Winning Team
While all the neighboring towns are writing to Morton trying to schedule games, we are unable to give them a satisfactory answer. It was hard to organize a team last year on account of not having a team for so many seasons previous, but after finishing second in the Renville County League there is no doubt that we can make all the teams travel a little. Morton has a good location for a baseball diamond and lacks nothing but a grandstand to make it an up-to-date ball ground.
A meeting will be held in the near future and everyone interested should come and help organize a team. All we need is the “pep” and support. We can surely have the support, judging from the enthusiasm shown during the basketball season. As we have the material we should have one of the best teams around here this year.
Don’t forget to boost this because it is going to help the town. Take a look at our Baseball Team. Didn’t that boost Old Morton!!!
High School Baseball Team Organized
A meeting was held Wednesday and about twenty members turned out to help organize a baseball team.
A.H. Martin was chosen coach, Frank Gaasch captain and Harry Donlon, manager. Practice has begun at school and the boys will be in trim to play in a few weeks. ~~ B.B. Reporter
