This Date in History

June 9, 1909: Brightwood defeated Petworth in the Suburban League on Petworth’s grounds. There was a large crowd despite the threatening weather. Errors were plentiful on account of the slippery grounds, and erratic playing nearly cost each side the game. Besides all the excitement of the game, a near-riot was enacted by a crowd of rooters along the third-base line, when several of the spectators began to mix things up. The final score was Brightwood 8, Petworth 5.Athletic equipment, Eastern High School, Washington, D.C., 1941
