Game Decided in Last
Frame; Entire Team
Shines in 11-10 Loss
By Sgt. Stanley Yavorski
It was the “Same Old Story”
Sunday afternoon on the post
diamond, for the homesters lost
a nip-and-tuck affair to the
Camp White Medics again, this
time by a SCOre Of 11-10.
In many ways this contest re-
sembled the game of the pre-
vious Sunday, for the Beavers
started off fast, only to be
caught from behind and outdis-
The customers had hardly set-
tied in their seats (?) when Ab-
hot shot out in front with four
runs. Diminutive Frankie Cap-
asso started proceedings with a
two-base knock, which was
quickly followed by a whistling
drive down the right field line by
Herb Seid, flashy hot corner
guardian, which was good for a
. , f
home run. A triple by Acting
Manager Steve Poehek followed,
Lefty Maslan singled, and both
scored on Al Pizzi’s bingle.
