Spencer pitched 50 points, 46 ringers, 13 doubles in 80 shoes in his game with Jackson, who only made 40 points, 43 ringers, 12 doubles. The total of 89 ringers and 25 double ringers was a world's record, as was also 13 double ringers for Spencer. There were only four games of more than 40 ringers by either player, two pitched by Jackson, and one each by Plogman and Spencer. All games were 50 points. All ties were played off in both men's and women's tournaments.
     This was the first tournament ever held in which a score card was used that recorded the number of shoes pitched by each player. This score card was arranged just before the tournament began by D. D. Cottrell, North Cohocton, N. Y., who had charge of the official records, assisted by W. S. Bicknell and Clyde Anderson. W. J. Godfrey was tournament manager.
