Indians win one, lose one on diamond
By CLAUDE VINSON
The Byhalia Indians, like most programs during this baseball season, have been hampered by an uncooperating weather element, but they managed to get a couple of games in last week.
The Indians were up against the Dragons of M.S. Palmer on March 26 and it was a cold game; however, the players played through and displayed little discomfort. Austin Yielding took the mound for Byhalia. The first Dragon batter sent a bunt up about 15 feet which was handled by Yielding with a throw to first. The second batter hit one straight to the pitcher and was also thrown out. The next Palmer hitter got on, but his teammate grounded out to the Byhalia second bagger, who forced the runner out between bases.
