1911 Jun 1 – Winnipegosis
Chas. Denby has lately arrived from Delphi, Missouri. Though he seems a little fatigued after the long journey, he will no doubt be able to come back. They will have to show Charlie. The “Heavy hitting Daney” played with the White Soxs of Gruber last season and is a strong acquisition to the team. Dudley has been imported all the way from Piccadilly Alley, London, England, to play 2nd base. The pitching staff is well known to fandom, Medd and Perrault have been secured at great cost. They are both slab artists with a reputation. The club after a hard flight have secured the release of McDonald. He easily fills the gap behind the bat. Bill Mullin, who is a brother to the Mullin now playing with the Detroit Tigers, is easily the biggest find of the season, weighs 250 lbw. Marcroft who plays centre field is farmed out to the locals by the South Bay team. He says he is some pitcher too. Hodgins is a local boy, having extensive interests at Fork River. Bennie Hechter is the run getter of the team. He can steal anything from home plate to fish for Friday.
Capt. Medd will no doubt be sending challenges out in a short time as he must get this costly arrogation into shape for the tour he intend making this summer to South Bay, Fork River and possibly Sifton or Dauphin. We wish the team success.
