High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - May 24, 1939, High Point, North Carolina Wednesday. May 2t. 1930the High Point Enterprise pie a lout Center of a High Point North Carolin aage Nini Hobby leads looters into 1st round a a a a medal counter 0x Ona ens Battle tomorrow night the Bona Allens in the right hand Corner at the top of the letter Heads of the Buford ga., Bona Allen baseball dub wave the stars Aud stripes. In the Center is a Ygona Auen baseball club National Semi pro the Best baseball club in tile i listed Blairs outside of organized baseball and far better than most of the dubs under organized baseball s Banner. To be the National champions in anything you have to have something on the Ball besides a prayer and to weather the 32-team team tournament at Wichita Kansas in August you have to have everything. And the Bona Allens have got most everything. Their first string Catcher Casey Kimbrel played in the International and Southern before he found it More pro table to advertise shoes with a Bat and a Mitt. Almond Kimbrel s understudy was with Chattanooga in the Southern league. Andy Johnson the first baseman was named the outstanding player in the National tournament last year. And out of that tournament have come some illustrious figures in baseball including Freddie Hutchinson who was not named the outstanding player the year he was out there. The pitching stuff is a dark Abe White who you Quot ill remember As a former Cardinal and Leslie muons who chunked for Brooklyn and the cards Lead the flinging corps. By Moore and chief Moore a couple of other pitchers heaved in tin Southern and National respectively. Gene Nix another Moui ids Man toiled in the Southern league. Along with Andy Johnson the infield is composed of Jack Shipley american association and by penn., at second Yarter Memphis and the a s at Short and Claud Herrin All american for three years in College at third. That makes a pretty Semi pro lineup Don t you think Johnnie Stowe Gerald met Haig and Baxter All former Southern league Ball players play the three Outfield positions. For three straight years the Bona Allens have been awarded the George Sisler trophy for having the outstanding Semi pro club in the United states. With that powerful lineup you would assume that tin Bona Allens have any trouble in knocking off the teams in their neighbourhood or the state for that matter. But that Isnit exactly the truth. They Are not unbeatable. Last year on the Spring trip the Bona Allens broke even in a two game series with those Tough eagles from Asheboro. And they Hook up with the Asheboro clan again Friday afternoon Over there. With Laird Perry or Bob Haney on tin mount tomorrow night tile National champs Are going to find the Adams Millis White sox a hard nut to crack. In the second thought there Are a flock of baseball teams in the state Semi pro program that can give the Bona Allens a Battle. Tower Mcewen and May of Burlington Are not by any Means soft touches Lucky strike of Durham can go with the Best of them and tin state champions. Roanoke rapids Are very nearly As Good As they come. The Bona Allens As you might suspect represent a shoe factory Down in Georgia. The Ball club is charged off to advertising and they Don t play a lot of games at Home. A couple of years ago the folks in Buford suggested to the management that ten and fifteen cents was a Little too Steep a Price for admission to the Bona Allen games and threatened to Boycott the games. The Boss a fellow named Smith said All right Boycott he scheduled a game with some club closed the Gates of the Park and would t let anybody in. He was the Lone occupant of the stands Dur ing a full nine inning Ball game. And that s that. Faces Haywood Bill Snow meets Jack Wagner in opening go of Carolinas play Charlotte May 24.
