"Seventh Inning - Then Police. - Reserves Stop Ball Game After Inspector Buys Score Card. - Five thousand persons who went to the Lenox Oval, 145th street and Lenox avenue, yesterday afternoon, to see a baseball game between the Orange Field Club and the Lincoln stars, expressed many brands of disgust when police reserves under Captain Kuehne of the Lenox Avenue Station stopped the game in the seventh inning and shooed everybody out of the grounds. Detective Coakley, of Inspector Ryan's staff, preceded the reserves to the Oval. Tom Kelly, the gate tender, living at 76 Manhattan avenue, said that he couldn't enter unless he bought a score card, and Coakley paid 25 cents for one. Then he arrested Kelly for violating the Sunday laws and the reserves put the finishing touches to the game. The Lincoln Stars defeated Jack Water's All Stars on the Oval in the morning without interruption, by a score of 14 to 1. Other games at which score cards were sold were stopped by the police."
