Two International Baseball matches between America and Canada were played in Dublin and Belfast in late October 1917.
In the first encounter Canada won by 10 runs to 6, and the return match, in Belfast, finished 5-5.
Doyle for Canada, and Stanley for America were the Pitchers, who were described as excellent.
America went 2-0 up in the first innings, but Canada added one in the second, and levelled the match in the third. America took the lead again in the fourth with a well-obtained run, but Canada retook the lead in the fifth by adding two runs. There was no score from then until the ninth innings, when America obtained two. It looked like America was going to win when Canada’s first batter failed, but they managed to equalise in the end. One Extra inning failed to separate the sides, and it finished five runs each.
