"On Friday, June 28th, at 2:30 p.m. at the association grounds, Emmetsburg, our crack nine will meet the West Benders on the diamond. This will be by far the strongest game put up here this season. Our boys play well and the West Benders, we understand, will be reinforced by the best of the Nevada nine's men. The Nevada club is about the strongest base ball team in the north-west Iowa amateur list. You should not miss this game."
