Fitzgerald, who played in the
Yank outfield about two decades

Scout Coltrin, w'ho covers the

confine his scouting merely to col

standing preppers, too.
With Bruce Hamby, University
sports publicity putter-outer, he
drove out yesterday to look over
Pleasant Hill’s Red Mauney, who

no hitters in his own class. Coltrin

Theta Chis Win Loop Title; DUs Have Single

Sigma Chis Tie With Pi Kaps
By BILL HELPS
It looks ^ready like it will be Wally McKenzie of Theta Chi against
Bill Jones of Delta Upsilon in the intramural softball finals.
Bill Jones entered the hall of fame along with McKenzie as he
pitched the DUs to a 13 to 0 victory over Phi Delta Theta yesterday.
The win knocked the barnmen out of first place in the division loop,
and kept the DU record spotless.
In winning the game, Jones fanned 10 and allowed only two men
to get on base, one on an error in
the third and the other on a walk
in the fifth.
The DUs put two hits, two walks
and an error together for three
runs in the first, and added another
in the second. Guy Benson held the
DUs scoreless for the next
two innings, but they belted him
off the mound in a wild fifth inn
Bill Jones opened with a double,
and Bill Zimmerman walked. Jim
Timmins hit to fill the bases, and
Willard Mclnturff came through
with a triple. John Weber scored
Mclnturf with a hit, but Connie
Grabb grounded out for the first
out. A1 Shaw grounded down the
third base line, Weber was out
trying to score.
Dave Silven walked, as did
Dwight Nott. At this point, Jack
Blanchard replaced Benson as hur
1 ler for the Phi Delts. He promptly
walked Bob Morris to send in a
run, and did the same for Bill
Jones, up for the second time that
inning. Zimmerman singled to
score Nott and Morris, and Tim
mins came through to send Jones
in with a single. Mclnturff ended
the inning, grounding out.
At the plate, the DUs were led
by Timmis, who got two for two,
and Weber, who hit three for four.
Jones and Silven each got two hits
in three trips.

Sigma Chis 7, Pi Kaps 7
Sigma Chi went on a seven-run
splurge in the last inning yester
day to come from behind and tie
the game that Pi Kappa Alpha had
virtually in the bag yesterday.
The Pi Kaps reached Pat Dolan
for a pair of runs in the first, and
added another pair in the second to
go into a four-run lead. Meanwhile
Jim Webb was allowing the Sweet
hearts only one hit. while fanning
seven in three innings.
In the fourth, the Pi Kaps scored
three more counters to put the
game on ice—almost. The Sweet
hearts didn’t seem to realize the
fact, and coupled three hits with
four Pi Kap errors to tie the game
all up, and there it stayed. There
wasn’t time to break the tie.
The game leaves the Pi Kaps and
Sweethearts tied for fourth place
in the division race's final stand
