Baseball Reporting

We’ve all heard modern talk of objectivity in journalism.  No such worries for the August 11, 1903 Skidmore Standard:

Burlington Junction Won

Our ball team was defeated Sunday afternoon in a warmly contested game by Burlington Junction’s team by a score of 6 to 5.  There was considerable bum playing on both sides but it was an exciting game as first one side and then the other was ahead and it was anybody’s game until the last out.  The Junction boys are clean ball players and put up a nice game but we still think they have no business with our team.  This is the first game Skidmore has lost on the home grounds this year.
