A .word of thank a to the~ various merchants and inr dividuals who have donated these' prizes as to make this presentation possible. I also would like to extend our gratitude' to the umpires who have donated their precious time to the baseball games, during, the 1961 competition a apecial word of thanks to Mr. Cooper, and last but not least to all those who have contributed in one way or the other to make this Baseball competition a success, You may be wondering who is the St. Maarten Baseball Bond and vtio has sponsored this competition* The St. Maarten Baseball Bond was organized by: Four baseball loving young men from this island, and the competition was sponsored by the same four energetic baseball loving, young men. They are: Mr. Esthenel Brookson of the Mari' got Baseball Club* Mr. John (Hank) Peters of the Cole Bay Dodgers who unfortunately is not on the Island at present to witness the closing, of the 196l Baseball Competition in which he has taken, part, Mr. Arnold Scott of the Y.M.S.C. Baseball Club, and last v 'it not least Mr. Jean Illidge of '-he Caterpillar's Baseball Club. The first and the second prize have been donated by the four abovementioned clubs. We have, gone through great, sacrifices to makethis competition a success, for it has been a "past word 11 here in. St. Maarten that sayss "There is always a good beginning but the • ending is always'a failure." We want to show the public in general 'that if you have the right "persons to do the right,things at the right, time, everything, can be made possible here in St. Maarten. I would like to outline to you that base ball is one of the highest, paid sports in the world today. And with the interest, that the youthi have in baseball at present-, maybe, a few more years to come St # Maarten might have the honor a£ to have someone in the. Major. League. As, I can see from the past, competition, there are a few promising, young.boys,'with just about a year of "baseball knowledge if they con* tinue will prove themselves in top classes* Baseball is a very expensive sport rtr4' before ending, my speecht I would like to ask the merchants and both Governments to help support this sport. Your cooperation and dona?tions will be highly appreciated. FOOTBALL On Sunday October 1, an island wide flootball competition was started. There are sewan tiams (four from the Dutch Part and three from the French Part of the island) taking, part in the competition.
