FANS TO NAME BASEBALL TEAM
The question is frequently asked: “What’s in a name?” To thousands of Victoria baseball fans the name of their professional team in the Western International League will probably be an important item.
Anxious to get a good moniker for their club, officials of the Victoria Baseball and Athletic Co., Ltd., have decided to stage a name contest, Laurel Harney, one of the prime movers in the baseball plan, announced last night.
The contest will be open to all, with a suitable prize going to the person submitting the winning name. Contestants are invited to file their entries with the sports department of this paper. All entries shuld be marked “Baseball Name Contest.”
