Mail Tribune 100: September 22, 1913

September 22, 1913

Showing the customary Medford spirit, Robert J. Brovard has guaranteed the $1,000 demanded, rain or shine, and the world touring teams of the famous New York Giants, champions of the National League and the Chicago White Sox, of the Association, will play in Medford on November 18.

Court Hall, owner of the baseball grounds, has offered the grounds free of charge. It is planned to sell concessions, publish an official program and sell as many tickets in advance as possible.

Special trains will be run by the Southern Pacific from Redding and Northern California points, and Roseburg and Southern California points.

A record-breaking crowd is expected, as this will be the only chance to see these famous players outside the larger cities.

Medford is the only small city in the country having a baseball fan with enterprise sufficient to take the chance of losing the guarantee if the weather is bad. But whether it rains or not, the teams will be here and a tremendous amount of advertising result.
