Mellott of Needmore; Robert Hemsky of Amaranth; Budd Shore of Burnt Cabins; Joseph Divelbliss of Hancock; Russell McKee of Needmore; and Charles Newman of Wells Tannery.

A “thriller-diller” baseball game was played Sunday between Hustontown and Six Mile Run. Deadlocked at 4-4, the game went on for 18 innings when Hustontown broke the tie with one run in the bottom of the 18th. Bob Keebaugh went the whole route on the mound for the Hustontown nine – surely some sort of record for Fulton County.
