TODAY IN HISTORY
7,000 Watch Fort Sill Bill
FORT SILL, Aug. 16, 1942.—(Special.)—Before the largest crowd ever to attend a baseball game at Fort Sill, Al Schacht, “the Clown Prince of Baseball,” kept 7,000 fans in an uproar Sunday before the Sixth regiment replacement Training Center nine upset the Field Artillery School, Negro detachment, 6 to 3, in a Fort Sill league game and thereby took first place.
The comedian performed the same hilarious pantomime stunts which he recently featured before the all-star baseball game in New York and drew an unusual number of high-ranking post officials to Butner field. Schacht remained overnight at the Officers’ club to perform Sunday afternoon when Saturday’s game was rained out.
An exciting three-run rally, made on four hits and daring base running in the ninth, was not enough for the three-time league champions to overcome the Sixth regiment’s lead of the first three innings (Daily Oklahoman).
