Yesterday's Tennessee

Salant Baseball

from the collection of Brenda Fiddler

August 9, 1940
Lexington Progress

Lexington at Parsons Sunday: The Lexington baseball boys, much encouraged by defeating Linden in a double header last Sunday, will go to Parsons next Sunday the 11th for a game, and on Sunday, the 19th, Salant & Salant of Paris will bring their club here for a try with the Lexington boys.

The games have been interesting. Woodrow Buck has been doing some wonderful pitching and if you enjoy a ball game—be there.
[Lexington beat Parsons, 10 to 9 with Abe Fishier, the winning pitcher]
