1915 - Ball Players Fight Fire
JOYNER, the Nampa High School Pitcher, and KUSS, the big local flinging phenom (sic), distinguished themselves as fire fighters Saturday afternoon. During the fifth inning of the Boise-Nampa game a small fire started in the grandstand, evidently originating from a cigar butt. The two players grabbed a sprinkling hose and extinguished the blaze before any considerable amount of damage had been done.
