Texas Gets Tight Collars;
Aggies Take SWC Title
Striking Out
Is Not So Bad,
Says Pizzitola
Managing Editor
Aggie Catcher Bill Hancock
was at the plate. Neal Thomp
son, speedy sophomore outfielder
was perched on first base.
A&M’s number two catcher and
number one holler-guy, Jerry Piz
zitola solemnly told the photo
grapher, “If Handy gets on, I’ll
probably have to pinch hit.”
Sure enough, the Golden Bear
got on — all the way to second
base — and Lance Cobb was in
tentionally walked to fill the
bases. Next in the batting order
was pitcher Steve Hillhouse. But
Aggie coach Tom Chandler had
other ideas. He beckoned to Piz
Here was the situation to be
a hero or a goat. The bases were
loaded with one out in the top
of the ninth inning of the game

Conference Baseball champion
ship. The scoreboard read: A&M
2, Texas 2.
Chandler halted Pizzitola on
the way to the plate. “Go up
there swinging,” the coach ad
He did. The Texas pitcher
grooved two strikes, which Piz
zitola watched. Then he picked
out the one he wanted
and missed it.
But the stocky catcher was not
a goat. Frank Stark belted a
double to clear the bases and give
the Aggies a 5-2 lead, which they
held for a victory.
After the game, Pizzitola was
just as happy as the next guy.
“What if I had hit into a double
play?” he asked.
Now that’s optimism.

gave chase.
The car went into the irriga

climbed out and stood on the
hood with a rifle, and the officer
said he fired a warning shot at
the man who jumped into the
canal and disappeared.
The body of Reasons’ former

The children were found dead

Stark 9 s Hit Wins
For Maroon Nine
Associate Editor
A thin Maroon line of heroes tromped across Clark Field
Friday afternoon to their dressing room under Memorial
Stadium across the street.
After 26 innings—nine hours—of pressure packed, ten
sion-laden baseball, the Aggies could lay claim to the South
west Conference championship. They had beaten Texas at
their own game, in their own field and the cries of “Poor
Aggies” still echoing off the centerfield cliff.
The climax came in the top of the ninth inning with two
outs, bases loaded, score tied at 2-2 and darkness descending.
Aggie first baseman Frank Stark hit reliever Robert Wells’
second pitch to the wall in left field scoring all three runners.
“It was a high, inside fastball, one of the few I’ve hit this
year,” Stark said. The senior from Davenport, Iowa, also
accounted for both Aggie runs in the first game with a fourth
inning home run over the right field fence.
Chuck McGuire, who took the loss in the 3-2 first game,
retired the Longhorns in order to preserve the win for Steve
Hillhouse and secure the crown A&M last won in 1959.
Hillhouse, sophomore lefty from Colorado City, thus
chalked up two wins over Texas for the season, both by 5-2
scores. Hillhouse relieved starter Billy Crain in the seventh
A&M and Texas played to a 10 inning 5-5 tie Thursday
to necessitate Friday’s double header.
It was a great display of determination and guts on the
part of the Aggies.
Jerry Ballard, shortstop from Bryan, was one of three
Cadets to get four hits as well as playing errorless ball
despite a pulled leg muscle that barely permitted him to walk.
Billy Crain, pitched eight innings of strong ball and
played 16 more frames in right field. Neal Thompson came
off the bench to score two runs and make a good catch for
the final out in the final game.
Robert McAdams replaced Freddie Carlton in the seventh
inning of the second game and made a difficult running catch
of a foul ball off the bat of UT’s Butch Thompson.
Bill Hancock, taunted throughout the series by Teasips,
caught every inning in the 80-degree heat and drove in the
first A&M run in the second tilt.
Second baseman Bill Grochett also played errorless ball
and picked up four safeties for the Aggies.
For the eight seniors on the squad it was sweet revenge
for the loss suffered to Texas in 1962. That year the Aggies
went to Austin with the same situation, needing one win in
two games. Texas won both games and the title.
And for 15 innings Friday, it looked like the same fate
was in store for the Maroon again. Texas scored two runs
in the bottom half of the seventh in the opener to put all the
chips on the second game. Very few of the 4200 fans left at
But this time the tight collars were on the other throat.
The Steers had stuck doggedly with the superior Cadet club
but luck ran out on them.
The clinching victory gave A&M a final 12-3 SWC record
and a 19-6 season slate. Coach Tom Chandler’s crew won
13 of their last 14 games. Chandler was the rookie coach of
A&M’s 1959 title-winners.
Texas ended with a 10-5 record and a second place tie
with Baylor. The Bear baseball team made the trip to Austin
for Friday’s twin bill and were behind the Aggie bench root
ing for the Maroon.
The baseball crown, hard on the heels of A&M’s basket
ball title, means that A&M will probably represent Region VI
at the College World Series in Omaha. The regional selection
committee must first determine if there are any independent
schools worthy of playing the Aggies. If not, the next game
for the Cadets will be 2 p. m. Monday, June 8, in Omaha
against the Region IV representative. Region IV is in the

dent pin and the civilian week
end as highlights of the year.
