This photo was taken on the front steps of the Reformatory Administration Building on Decoration Day, 1914. The photo was used in the 1915 Sahalie, the high school yearbook, which was published before the 1915 spring sports season. The photo was described this way:
After the track season was over only two weeks remained for the baseball season hence only one game was played, that being a Decoration Day game against the University of Another Chance (Washington State Reformatory.) The game was played on Reformatory diamond which is one of the best in the state. In addition to the three or four hundred inmate rooters, the W. S. R. Band was out and played between innings. Several hundred people from town were in attendance at the game and it is hoped that the M. H. S.—W. S. R. game will be an annual Decoration Day affair. The sportsmanlike conduct of the W. S. R. players and rooters was one of the noticeable features of the game. The game was interesting one and ending in a 12-8 victory for the W. S. R. The high school lineup for the game was as follows: Gerber and Bennett catchers, Dainard and Lemon pitchers, Knott first base, Gilliland 2nd base, Daly and Lowe 3rd base, Crow shortstop, Stan. Dainard right field, Hagedorn and Taylor center field, George and Vanasdlen left field.
