On This Date: Fargo Celebrates Independence Day with Win Over Moorhead

July 4, 1897 - Fred Steele pitched for the Divorcees, needing only an RBI double by Peaceful Valley Brown for support in Fargo's 1-0 win over Moorhead. Steele hit four batters, walked three more, and the defense behind him committed four errors, but the Barmaids only managed two hits off the 21-year-old twirler. Andy Anderson pitched well for Moorhead, allowing just seven hits, walking none, and hitting none, but failed to get any run support as the Barmaids left 11 men on base. The game was wrapped up in a tidy 82 minutes.
