Stan Anderson Pitches Alpha Tau Omega
Club to 12 to 0 No-Hit Victory; Campbell,
Alpha, Sammies, Omega, Canard Lose
By BILL PHELPS
The intramural softball hall-of-fame is getting crowded. Latest
recruit to its ranks is Stan Anderson, Alpha Tau Omega’s hurler, who
entered by virtue of a no-hit game against Campbell Co-op yesterday.
The final score was 14 to 0.
The ATOs pounded Gordon Connelly for six runs in the first, but
eased off to drift in with the game. In the meantime, Anderson was
allowing five walks, striking out 15, and enjoying himself immensely.
The first 10 outs were all on strike-outs by the hotelman pitcher.
The victory sends ATO into second place in the division race, half
