Bast, John (Winning Pitcher – 15 Jun 1916)

Bast pitched gilt edge ball and had the Wausau team whiffing the air. Bast, although in hot water several times on account of lack of control, braced and held the Wausau team safe. His work in this game shows that he will be a worthy foe for all teams. The Wausau team garnered but three hits off his delivery, and in the meantime he also struck out 16. – Marshfield News
