The San Francisco Chronicle, Dec. 2, 1924, quoting the newsletter of Near East Relief, an American charity group, says the NER sponsored a baseball tournament for its orphanages in the Near East. "The winner this year was from the American orphanage for girls at Syre," who beat a boys team 19-17 for the title. The games were played at Salonika (Thessaloniki).

Is this "Syre" Tyre in Lebanon? Or a variant spelling of Syria?
