1924 Long Branch Winner
The Beards Fork ball club went down to defeat for the first time this season, at the hands of the Long Branch aggregation, in a well played game on the later's diamond by a score of 2 to 0. The two runs were scored in the fifth inning when Syronna failed to catch an infield fly, and Settle threw wild to McCombs. The third runner was out at the plate when Stroup threw to Kidd.
The feature of the game was the fielding of the Long Branch players who never allowed a man to pass second base.
