Baseball, Ohio (Part 5)

Writer's note: In the last installment of this series, we provided a partial list of some of the names suggested in numerous editions of the Twin City News following the annexation of Basil to Baltimore in 1947. There were more than two dozen names proposed by both local and out-of-town writers. Most contributors identified themselves, but some chose to remain anonymous. Many of the suggested names were self-explanatory; however, a few required a bit of thought. I have selected some that need a bit of an explanation.
