Negro Nines in Twin Bill At Comiskey Park Sunday Negro American League baseball returns to Comiskey Park Sunday, June 8, when the fast-moving Chicago American Giants take on the Indianapolis Clowns in a gala doubleheader, starting at 1:30 p. m. The twin bill shapes up as a showdown in Negro American League baseball. Last year the. Giants won the first half and the Clowns took the second. Because of the cold weather, a playoff series was abandoned and it was decided to call the clubs co-champions. However, each claims to be superior. The doubleheader will settle the dispute. The Clowns, known the country over as baseballs funny men, play a brand of baseball seldom seen outside of the major league. The Giants have just taken three out of four games from the strong Birmingham Black Barons. Ray Neil, who earlier this season was with the Dallas club of the Texas League, Leander "Schoolboy" Tugerson, given a try-out by the Chicago White Sox but cut in the spring pruning of their mound staff, and Armando Vazquez, the Cuban first baseman, are only three of the stars on the Clowns squad. Neil is a second baseman, the first Negro given a trial in the Texas League.
