Looking Back on May 10, 2010


100 years ago, 1910

In a game marred by frequent errors Lewiston won their first game in the Bowdoin League from Edward Little on the A. A. A. Park Saturday by the score of 11 to 10, the game going ten innings. Runs made by both teams were largely due to errors, but Gerrish’s passes proved costly. Cheney excelled for Auburn. In fourteen times at the bat this year he has made eleven hits, getting three out of five yesterday and the other two times hitting the ball so hard that he got to first safely. Garrish pitched a good game, striking out eleven but passing six men to first, four of whom tallied.

Mrs. Louise Casey and Mrs. Charlotte Deschesne, two of the leaders in Lewiston, said their tabulations showed an increase of about 2,800.

Angelique Lagueux, a 16-year-old Lewiston High School sophomore who has been named to the Public Library board of trustees, says she hopes to offer “some insight” on younger patrons.
