MEDFORD TO PLAY GRANTS PASS AT MEDFORD SUNDAY

The third game of the series between Grants Pass and Medford will be played at the ball park tomorrow afternoon, with Caster and Force the battery for Medford. Word comes from Grants Pass that they will bring an imported battery and the strongest team of the year. Owing to the departure of Buddy Scholtz, either Miles or McIntyre will play short for the locals. Sieberts will play third. This is likely to be the last game of the season on the home grounds. Next week the team leaves for Brookings, Cal., where they will play during the Chetco carnival.
