-- No box scores were available in the local newspaper for these days.
(a) Joe hit by pitch twice during this game.
(b) Joe did not play in this game.
4 games were scheduled with the Rayville, LA team July 9 - 12, but Rayville canceled those games at the last minute. I believe this happened because they found out that the player named Joe Johnson was in fact, Joe Jackson. All the papers in the area reported on July 11, 1923 that Joe was playing for Bastrop.

NOTE: Joe left Bastrop around July 16th headed for Americus, GA. He played his first game with Americus on Friday July 20, 1923. Serveral days after he arrived in Americus, he sent for his Bastrop teammates to join him. The Bastrop paper reported that almost to the man every member of the Bastrop team left and went to play for Joe in Americus. The Bastrop paper continued to follow the Americus team, calling them "the Bastrop team playing in Americus, GA."
