Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 22, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, AUGUST THE LKTHBniDCE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE World "Serious" Tomorrow; Warner Plays Champion Here 'PhanB' and bugs who stroll to Bck- tetorm park tomorrow afternoon at 6 30 should see smuo of the best brand of ball pulled oft this year, when War- ner and Champion mobilize their fore- os lo contest for the WIG champion- ship of Southern Alberta. Tomorrow IB a halt-holiday and there Is no other form of entertainment fin- the evening. That should be enough to assure a big crowd. The calibre of ball played by the two teams this year has boon all to the merry. Warner is coming in bached by a squad of roolcra a mile long, while Champion has a following ull through the. territory north of Lclhbrldge and will bring plenty of support. With a big crowd from Lelhbridgo playing "neutral" there should be big doings In the old ball yard. Don't forget that the game comes off at 5.30. Nine Teams Have Chance To Win The World's Series New York Six American league teams are nepanited by virtually the same number oE points as arc three National league teams and the world's championship is the possible achieve- ment of any of the nine clubs. The American race tightened last week. In the National league there was not much change among the leaders ex- cepting that Philadelphia moved into second place, sending Boston to third. Boston retains the American lead by R slightly greater margin that at the beginning of the week. Fewer games were played than usual, because of open dates. The Red Sox bad a four- game battle with Chicago, winning the first two games, one a 16-innlng af- fair, and losing the last two. Boston also broke even in two games with Washington, but on Saturday won from Cleveland. The White Sox went into third place Sunday, but regained second Friday, stter Cleveland lost three straight games to New York. Cleveland bepan the week well, but started the last eastern trip poorly against New York, the Yankees winning every game. New York made the beat advance of any team in the league, winning five straight from Philadelphia and Cleve- land, but losing Saturday to Chicago. St. Louis and Detroit managed to keep within striking distance of the leaders. Wednenday the western teams start on their last eastern trip. The national race appears to have narrowed down to three teams with Brooklyn having the best chance with Its strong hold on first place and the steadiness of its pitching staff. Bos- ton's pitchers arc erratic and Phila- delphia has only one consistent box man, Alexander. The last western invasion by the eastern teams for 191S began Thurs- day. The international reimlts for the three days were: East 6, west 6.
