By 1950, the Green Sox had some monster hitters and no bigger than Parnell Ruark who would set the all time Lovett Park record for Home Runs with 39 HR along with 27 2B and a .327 batting average. Parnell had plenty of protection in the lineup with John Tidwell hitting 39 2B, 6 3B, 21 HR, .307; Hugh Blanton with 19 HR, .273 and Jack Collins with 26 2B, 18 HR, .284. On the mound, the king of the hill was Charles Smalley whose league leading 23-7, league leading 2.46 ERA and league leading 237 Strikeouts would also set records at this ballpark. Smalley had plenty of good pitching behind him as well with James Warren (11-5, 4.65), Henry Clifton (13-7, 3.83), 19 HR power hitting Hugh Blanton (12-7, 5.05) who was just as adept at pitching, Kendall Starnes (10-6, 3.94) and Edward Wissman (9-4, 3.32). This fantastic lineup and pitching staff easily took 1st place with an 84-56 (.600) record and immediately took Fitzgerald's Pioneers out in the 1st round of the playoffs. Then, the Green Sox would come upon the Eastman Dodgers who featured the league's best all around hitter… Edgar Hartness who hit .400 with a league leading 134 RBI's. It was quite the matchup… best hitter vs. best power hitter and not surprisingly, the Green Sox and the Dodgers were all tied up after 6 games at 3 apiece. The final showdown would go not to the power hitters but to Edgar Hartness' Eastman Dodgers who took the Championship away from the 1st place Green Sox bringing an end to what was still a great season at Lovett Park as 50,000 came through the gates.
