1914-1915 Baseball Season
The first game,played on May 4, was against Central.  The Polars were defeated 8-1.  The yearbook says it was because of injuries and a lack of effort.

The Polars played East on May 11 and were defeated 6-3.  The team showed more effort in this losing effort.

On May 18 defeated West 6-4.  Harry Smith had joined the team and pitched a gem for the first victory of the year.

Matt Bugenstein was asked to pitch the May 19 game against South.  He kept the team in the game.  The 8-7 final score was in favor of the Polars.

The next game was against Central.  Bugenstein again pitched for the Polars.  The Polars came out on the short end of the score, losing 4-2.

East was the Jun 3 oponent.  They began a string of three straight drubbings, defeating the Polars soundly 11-1.

The June 10 game against West was again lopsided, with West winning 7-1.

The season mercifully ended on June 11 when South's Tigers shut out the Polars 10-0.
