Kitty Ball Leaders
Face III Omen
to Fall on Friday the
13th; Play Fast
Kitty Ball Standings
Won Lost Pet.
McNeill 2 0 1.000
Kleinfeldt 1 0 1.000
FFA 1 1 .500
Richardson 0 3 .000
Without assistance of an official
scorekeeper, kitty ball players are
generall agreed that Russell Mc
Neill's team has twice come out on
top in their two games to date, to
obtain lead position in the team
standings. The McNeill outfit took
the opener on Wednesday last week
by dumping Logie Richardson's
gang, then repeated by a good mar
gin Monday against FFA. Richard
son's mousers lost again Monday to
the Kleinfeldt tomcats, while FFA
tasted some sweet kitty meat last
evening by taking some more of the
That leaves Richardson's felines
with little but a purr for champion
ship hopes, while McNeill's wild
cats are making the back fences rock
with their howling; but the Klein
feldt and FFA clawers are still in
there doing plenty of hissing.
Tomorrow evening the Kleinfeldt
and McNeill cats will mix. With the
game falling on Friday the 13th, it's
hard telling how many black cats
will show up. It's certain an ill omen
hangs over the field, and it probably
bodes bad for the leaders. One team
or the other is bound to drop a notch
in the standings.
Too many exciting moments oc
curred in the games this week to at
tempt a detailed acocunt. A notable
outcome of last evening's fray, how
ever, was Bob Runnion with charley
horses enough for a centipede. Phil
Mahoney was a casualty last Fri
day when he took a hot line drive
in pitcher's box, and it is generally
noticeable that the kids are holding
up better in condition.
All told general improvement in
the playing is evidenced, and cat
fight or no cat fight, many exciting
moments are promised each Monday,
Wednesday and Friday evening un
til the schedule's end, June 3.
