“Check” Ellis To Play With Brewton Millers: Chester “Check” Ellis Jr. was to begin working out with the Brewton Millers of the Alabama State League tonight and expects to sign with the Class D club in a few days. “Check,” a 22-year-old right-handed pitcher, talked with Miller manager Norman Veazy Monday and was told to report for practice today.
“Check” has been attending Troy State Teachers College, and for the past two months has pitched for Colquitt in a very fast semi-pro loop in South Georgia. He was a star athlete at Evergreen High School, where he received his diploma, and played with the Evergreen Greenies last year after completing a hitch in the Navy.

Evergreen Bows Down To Andalusia: Last Thursday, the Evergreen nine met the Andalusia Senators on the local field and met with defeat by a score of 10 to 6. (Andalusia left fielder) Nelson led in the defeat of Evergreen with a credit of four runs.
(Evergreen’s lineup in that game included Kendall, second base; Hanna, center field; Melton, right field; Steen, third base; Fergison, shortstop; Hansen, left field; English, catcher; Jones, pitcher; and Barfield, first base.)
EVERGREEN LOSES SECOND GAME TO ANDALUSIA SUNDAY: Evergreen’s nine motored over to Andalusia to get revenge from the Andalusia Senators, but were again defeated by a score of 3 to 0.
(Evergreen pitcher) Hyde kept the Senators guessing and with the support of the team, it was impossible for Andalusia to advance the score.
A number of fans drove over and witnessed the game.
It seems evident that Andalusia fans back their team well and this is of great advantage to them. Let’s fall in line from their example and help the locals along.
The present standing of the teams in this league are in order, as follows, Florala holds the lead with Greenville, Evergreen and Luverne for second place; Andalusia, fifth; and Chapman at the bottom.
