Mail Tribune 100

July 6, 1916


Weed won the championship of Southern Oregon and Northern California this morning in an eleven inning game by a score of 2 to 1. Baseball fans pronounce the game the cleanest, fastest ever played by a local team.

The game was a pitcher's battle. Tuerck pitched the first two innings for Weed Tuesday, showing up in wonderful form. Sieberts was his match and the local team lost only through an error on the part of the shortstop.

Medford made the first run in the fifth. Determined to hold the lead Sieberts held them the next inning, but a Weed man came home in the seventh. Until the eleventh there was no score, although in the tenth there was a fast bit of play when McIntyre got to second on a low infield drive. Weed attempted a double play and the Weed second baseman threw the ball when McIntyre was only six feet away. It caught the Medford man on the side of the head and laid him out cold.

In the eleventh Garcia sent a line drive straight to Scholtz. The ball was a hot one and the little shortstop, who up to this time had played a perfect game, dropped it, and before he could recover it, a Weed tally slipped home.


  • Chief Hittson received a message last night notifying him that the Ford belonging to Earl Tumy, which was stolen Tuesday night at Ashland, had been found deserted and undamaged across the river from Grants Pass. It is thought that Grants Pass boys took the car as an easy and quick means of getting home from the roundup.
  • William Humphrey of the Mosquite Springs Mining Company of Gold Ray is in Medford this morning. He is bound for Ashland, where he will have a concentrator constructed for the mine. As soon as this is in operation, it is the plan of the company to put on additional men and push development work.
