This handbill advertises a baseball game between Gaylord and Smith Center on July 19, 1914. Both teams had competed a few days earlier in a four-team tournament held in Smith Center. Gaylord won the tournament, but Smith Center won the game played on July 19 by a score of 7-5. Many of the players on the Gaylord team were imported from the Kansas City area. The handbill was preserved in a scrapbook with items related to the baseball activities of Ray Stewart from Topeka. Stewart was hired to pitch for the Lebanon team during the Smith Center tournament.
