the Wildcats was played Friday afternoon on Stoll Field, with the Volunteers, resulting in a decisive victory
for Kentucky, by a score of 10 to 3.
The feature of the game was a home
nih by Henry Thomas, catcher for the
Wildcats, in the fifth inning. The ball
sailed out into deep center field, and
rolled out of Stoll Field thru a gap in
the fence, making the longest hit, and
the only home run of the season here.
The game was not so exciting and
close, but the students and other
fans on the bleachers had a chance to
give the Wildcats a close "once over"
and see Just what material Kentucky
has for a championship team.
