Ace Fails To
Win Crown
Not even a 190-yard hole-in-
one by Milton Whitt could turn
the tide for the White Band in
yesterday’s Class A intramural
golf finals.
Whitt and partner, Alan Prit
chard, were the White Band
losers to Co. F-l team compos
ed of Taylor Ewing and Paul
Ashley. Ewing had a five over
par while Ashley shot a three
over round.
Whitt’s spectacular shot came
on the eleventh hole as he hit
with a number 4 iron.

American League Round-Up
By The Associated Press
The Baltimore Orioles, one of
the pre-season facorites for the
American League flag, are no bet
ter than fifth, seven games behind
first-place Detroit. And if the
Birds’ pennant hopes are dying,
it’s strictly a case of suicide.
What else would you call it when
they can chase a starting pitcher
with six hits, four of them doubles,
and two walks in four innings,
but score just one run while leav
ing six on base ?
That’s what they did Monday
night as right-hander Jack Fisher
pitched perfect ball for five inn
ings yet wound up with his third
straight defeat in an 8-2 loss to
the Yankees at New York.
The victory left the third-place
Yankees 5% games behind De
troit. The Tigers walloped Kan
sas City 10-2, protecting their 3%-
game lead over the second-place
Cleveland Indians, who beat Min
nesota 75 in 15'innings. Boston
beat the Chicago White Sox 4-1,
and the Los Angels Angels de
feated Washington 6-4.
In the National League, San

Francisco retained a .014 percen
tage-point edge by beating St.
Louis 3-1 while the second-place
Los Angeles Dodgers won 2-1 in
10 innings at Cincinnati. Pitts
burgh beat Milwaukee 2-1 in the
only other game.
Clete Boyer broke up the per
fect game by Fisher (1-5) with a
leadoff single in thfe sixth inning
for the Yankees and came around
with an unearned run for a 1-1
tie. Boyer also hit a three-run
homer in the eighth—with all the
runs unearned—off Fisher, who
finished with a five-hitter.
The Yankees, with Jim Coates
(4-2) winning it in relief of Art
Ditmar, put it away in a four-run
seventh. Two walks and a single
by Yogi Berra broke the tie, and
the clinching run came home when
second base umpire Larry Napp
ruled second baseman Marv Breed
ing had trapped a liner by Elston
Howard. After the Orioles gave
their argument that Breeding had
caught the ball, Tony Kubek cap
ped the inning with a two-nm, two-
out single.
The Tigres came from behind
on a tying, solo homer by Norm
Cash in the ; fourth inning, then
flattened th A’s with six runs in
the fifth off Norm Bass (2-2).
Right-hander Phil Regan (5-0) al
lowed just five hits, one a pinch
homer by Don Larsen. 1

games, made it six straight on

gle in the 15th off losing reliever
Ted Sadowski and eight innings
of two-hit, shutout relief by Frank
Funk (5-2). A pair of two-run
homers by Woody Held over
hauled a 5-1 lead by the Twins.
Bill Monbouquette put away on
ly his third victory in seven de
cisions for Boston, but reduced his
earned run average to 1.93 for
6% innings while beating the
White Sox with a seven-hitter.
Frank Baumann (2-3) was the
loser, giving up a walk and singles
by Carl Yastrzemski, Jim Pagli-
aroni and Frank Mai zone as the
Red Sox broke a 1-1 tie in a three-
run fourth.
The Angels cut down one Wash
ington runner at the plate in the
eighth and escaped another score
when rookie Chuck Hinton left
third base too soon on Jim King’s
apparent .sacrifice fly in the Sen
ators’ seventh. Los Angeles made
the deciding run on a squeeze bunt
by winner Eli Grba (4-4) in the
sixth. Pete Burnside (2-2) was
the loser.

“You don’t realize how little you
know about a thing until you start
to tell someone something or ex
plain it,” these were the words of
J. B. Carroll, freshman baseball
In looking back over the past
baseball season Carroll has nothing
but pleasant thoughts because his
first year men had a record of 10
wins to only one loss.
“I reallly enjoyed working with
the boys because I like baseball
and I’ve always wanted to coach,”
Carroll remarked.
As a team, the Fish did real well
because they had a lot of boys who
wanted to win. Even though the
varsity will lose some good boys
this year, next year’s sophomores
will give Coach Chandler plenty
of help.
Pitchers Will Help
“The pitching will help Coach
Chandler quite a bit next year but
you can’t expect too much until
these boys get some experience,”
Carroll said.
A lot of this year’s Fish will
be playing next season but many
will not be playing the position
which they played this year. There
will be some shifting to get the
best nine on the field. After work
ing on the varsity for awhile a lot
of the boys find they can play an
other position better.
As many of the spectators will
agree, the best game the Fish
Hank Aaron Makes
Skipper Look Good
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK—Hank Aaron ot
Milwaukee is making his manag
er’s prediction of an improved bat
ting performance look good.
Aaron, two-time National
League batting champion, slumped
to a .292 average last sbason. This
spring, Braves’ skipper Charley
Dressen forecast a 40-point in
crease by his hard-hitting out
And, after a slow start, Aaron
has started to find the range. In
last week’s games, he hit at a .400
pace, collecting 10 hits in 25 tries
and lifting his average 19 points
to .331. Including Sunday’s games,
Aarion was in fifth place in the
National League competition, He
won the senior circuit title in 1956
and 1959.
Most of the other batting lead
ers lost ground. Wally Moon of
the Los Angeles Dodgers remained
in first place despite a three-point
drop to .372.
In the American League, John
ny Temple of Cleveland regained
the batting lead. He picked up
seven points and is at .360.
played this season was against the
Texas Shorthorns on Kyle Field.
The Freshmen went the entire
game without making a single
“Anytime a team makes no er
rors in a game it’s going to be
hard to beat ’em,” Carroll said.
Cubs Top Opponents
The best team which the Fish
met this season was the Baylor
Cubs, Carroll stated, despite the
score which was 17-0 in favor of
th$ Fish. They had a well-rounded
club but the lack of experience was
evident in the first game. In the
second meeting of the two fresh
man teams the Cubs were a much
improved team but the Fish still
took them 9-2.
In talking about the success that
his boys had this spring Carroll
said that they were all pretty con
scientious boys because they all
did well in their studies and they
didn’t let troubles of school get
them down.
“I think that the boys will be
one step ahead of everyone else
in the conference because the ma
jority of them are going to play
in a summer league,” Carroll ex
With the experience which th
boys will get from playing on sun,,
mer league teams like New Oi.

should be all set to go after net
