Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 24, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta TEe Lethbridge Daily Herald VOL. I LETHBRIDGE, MONDAY, AUGUST 24, NO. 214. A GREAT BALL GAME IN THE STATES Sixteen Innings Were Played Without Either Side Scoring TO INSURE AGAINST HAIL Farmm in Airdrie aneTCarstairs Dis. tricts Circulating Petitions to thj Government Pittsburg, Aug. won tlit- greatest baseball game ever play, t'd ia tliiB city, today from Brooklyn by a. .score of 1 to 0. The contest lusted seventeen in. uings which. breaks all records for extra inning games in this oily and equals the National League r ecord for 1 to 0 games made by Chicago and Hoston in 1901. The world's rec- ord foe a similar contest was 18 in- nings made by Providence in 1882. Rain stopped the game today in the second innings, but play was resum- ed in 25 minutes on an extremely wet field and a couple of innings wtre played in a rather heavy rain. Young and Pastorious each pitched a splen- did game. Both were strong with men on bases. Thomas saved the game for the home team in the IGth ilining by a lonir throw to the plate from centre field, catching PastorL ous. The winning run was made in the 17th innings after two men were out. Calgary, Aug. are intf circulated in the Airdrie and Car. stairs districts in favor of a more ex. tensive .system of hail insurance than now exists in the province. The farm. er.s are .signing the petition in large numbers n.s It is feit that Lo escape this year may only mean that one might become a. victim next year. It is proposed to ask the provincial government to establish a hail in- surance bureau and raise the funds by taxing the farmers a half cent or thereabouts an acre, each year, ft would be a mere bagatelle to .Urn in- dividual farmer but the sum collect- ed would mean much to the victim of a hail storm. The destruction by iiail hasn't been widespread this year but there have been .several cases. One man in the south lost acres f 'crops. In the Airdrie district sev_ ral men were hailed out particular- ly -in a destructive storm which -.truck tht- district last Saturday. One man. Mr. Kngstrom lost 12.0 acres of {rrai'n and Iwd no insurance. Hr is now quite an ardent supporter of hull insurance ev-ni if he .should never ose another crop in 100 years. Some other fellow might. Under the syst'.m in vogue at present the farmers are paid an acre but that isn't enough, is felt that would help tide over until another crop reaped.
