Williamsport will have its Sunday baseball this summer if present plans being made are consummated, according to reports reaching the “Gazette and Bulletin” and the baseball diamond will vie with the motorcar and call of the state highways in attracting local workingmen Sunday afternoons.

Sunday baseball has been discussed her for several years but has never been attempted. Last year with the organization of the Williamsport club of the professional NYP League the matter was given renewed attention. The management of the league club, however, dismissed the project after a brief consideration and will not attempt to revive it.

Now the Antlers Club of the Williamsport Lodge of the Elks Club has become interested in the matter and will probably carry it through. An amateur or semi-professional team will be organized and games will be scheduled with other teams of a like nature through this section of the state. The club has a large membership and can easily assemble a strong team within itself.

The Antlers Club grounds are located along the river, to west and outside of the city. About 40 acres of level ground is available for use as the playing space and motorcars. The latter will be of course, are essential, since the games are expected to attract baseball fans from all parts of the county and surrounding towns. A good grass diamond will also be characteristic of the venture.
