When the Legion takes the field i Sunday they will be wearing new style caps and brand new bright colored socks, along with the same Legion uniforms which were purchased just a few years ago. Season ticket sales to Legion Home games has been underway for some weeks now and reports to date show quite a number of Charles Town and Ranson bus- i iness men have already purchaed i one or more of them. They are still available and may be pur- chased from the Legion Home or from Howard Sechrist, Jimmy Morison, Leeds Riely, or the mere bers of the Legion. The price of the ticket is $10 which entitles the purchaser to attend all Leg- ion Home games. Two years ago when the Legion and FBI batsmen last met in the opening day game at the Legion field, the Legion scored an excit- ing 2-1 victory over the G-Men in what was a most exciting pit- cher's duel between Gilbert Mill- er and "Lefty" Steve Bauk. Bauk is expected to get the pit- ching assignment Sunday for the FBI, but whether Miller will be th starter for the Legion had not been decided yet Wednesday. Also coming back to tangle with the Legion again will be such former stars of the FBI team as big Joseph Parker, catch er, who was with the old Brook- lyn Dodgers chain, now the Los Angeles Dodgers; Mike Allman, of Mount St. Mary's College who will be patrolling centerfield; Jack Buckley, formerly with the Detroit Tiger farm system, at shortstop; Mark Raabe, formerly of the University of Minnesota baseball team, who was named on the All Big-Ten First team, who will be playing second base; Jim Gillis, the big and powerful first baseman; and of course Billy Car roll, who manages the team who has pitched against the Leg ion on previous occasions. t~ i They don't want to risk loss by carrying large sums of money around with them.
