TURN BACK THE CLOCK

Cecil Whig - - INSIDEBASEBALL -

The Win­ston-Salem Twins top the Asheville Tourists, 2–1, in a nine-in­ning game that lasts just 31 min­utes, the fastest nine-in­ning game in pro­fes­sional base­ball his­tory. The two teams, both with trains to catch, struck a pre-game agree­ment to play as quickly as pos­si­ble, much to the con­ster­na­tion of the 200 fans in at­ten­dance. Owner L.L. Jenk­ins later re­funded the ad­mis­sion price.
