rame at Waters park witnessed by a sparse crowd of spectators
who came out to get a peek at the local WI league entry
What they saw was not too
impressive as the l-ollegians,
led by a couple of ex-Willamette
valley high school players,
Hal McKee, formerly of Wood
burn, and Leo Grosjacques, ex
Mt. Angel flash, stole the show.
McKee, who represented Oregon
in the Esquire junior game a
few years back, collected four
hits in as many trips to the plate
and scored three times. Gros
Jacques got two hits, one of
them a double, and drove in
three runs.
Meanwhile, Rod Owens, ad
vertised as a fast-ball hurler,
but a better master of a puzzling
slider yesterday afternoon, had
the Senators pretty much on his
hip except for one inning the
third, when the Townies bag
ged four of their runs. In all.
Owen gave up but eight bingles.
and the only really hard knock
was Jim Wert's long triple off
the right-center boards to open
the eighth frame.
Manager Bill Beard used three
chuckers, Lefty Glenn Miller
starting. Miller gave up fix
hits, six walks and five runs
in four frames before giving
way to Bill Osborne who hurled
three shutout innings. Clyde
DeWitt finished up and gave up
single runs in both the eighth
and ninth.
The Pilots scored first, count
ing twice In the third on a walk
to shortstop Dallas Shockley
single by McKee, and some
weird fielding and throwing by
the Solons who took turns toss
ing the ball around the lot until
both runners had scored
Salem came back to dent the
plate four times. Miller started
the frame with a single. Third
sacker Wayne Petersen follow
ed suit, and Wert walked to fill
the sacks. Bud Petersen hit
hard to the shortstop who fum
bled the ball, and Miller scored
Mel Wasley then drove W. Peter
sen and West home with a
ground single to right. Wert
eventually scored on an Infield
out by Al Spaeter.
Portland went ahead by scor
ing three more in the fourth off
Miller. The Salem portsider
walked Joe Brogato and Shock
ley. Then McKee dropped a
two-bagger Just over Hill Bee-
son In right field, scoring Bro
gato. Grosjacques brought both
Shockley and McKee home by
dumping a Texas league double
between Spaeter and Beeson.
Salem tied It at 5-5 in the
sixth, Wert singling to open the

Wenatchee, Wash. Big things
are expected this year from the
Wenatchee Chiefs of the West
ern International league under
the guidance of new head man
Charlie Peterson.
Reports from the Chiefs' train
ing camp indicated there would
be some familiar faces In the
lineup. Lou McCollum, the
most dependable pitcher on last
year's seventh-place squad will
be back again. So will Tom
Rose, and Glenn Lierman. New
additions to the mounds corp
include Joe Orelle, who saw
action with Detroit and In the
coast loop; Hank Weaver and
Cy Greenlaw.
Fighting to win berths on the
squad are pitchers Bob Bruce,
last year with Anaheim; Dale
Hannan, a local sandlot product
and Arnold Bnhringer, a 10-year-old
junior league graduate
from Brewster, Wash.
Ex-chief Nick Pesut couldn't
quite make the grade with
Sacramento, and has been pur
chased outright by the Chiefs.
He will be number one mask
man with Leroy Winter also on
hand. Bob Goldstein, a Spokane
hoy on option from the Seattle
Rainiers, appeared set at first,
and is expected to make up for
his lack of polish on the bag
with some heavy hitting.
Best second base prospect is
Russ Brodie, formerly with
Charleston, W. Va. Newcomer
Fred Monge and Neil Bryant of
the '48 club are gunning for the
shortstop job. Monge appeared
to have the edge, and if he wins,
Bryant may be shifted to the
outfield where his R.B.I, will
stand to be counted. Joe Kron
berg has been making a de
termined bid for the hot corner,
and his powerful hitting doesn't
hurt his chances a bit.
Two spots appear to be nailed
down in the outfield. Clint
Cameron, down from Hollywood,
and Dirk Faber from last sea
son's Chiefs look good in left
and center. The right garden
may he filled on opening day
by Bryant, or Jim Warner.
Warner, a member of the Tribe's
1946 pennant-winning club, was
with the Solon's last year.
One sore spot was the loss of
outfield Bill Wilson who won
homerun honors and a trip to
the Solons for the play last
year. But the Wenatchee club
has the speed, and the power,
and will be one of the top con
tenders for the high average!
this season.
