Baseball boys – Quebec undefeated after three games
The Quebec team started their day with a 5-4 victory over the Prince Edward Island team, before continuing with an 11-0 victory against the Manitoba delegation at the end of the evening .
In the morning, the game between Quebecers and baseball players from Prince Edward Island required an extra inning.
