That in general seems to be the real concern of the sectional and area schoolboy base ball coaches these days.

In fact some teams were faced this week, and the same will be true next week, with the task of playing three games in a single week. And with most teams hay. ing only one, or at most two, With only eight games scheduled for this season Shepherd College moved into the second half of the front line pitchers, their jobs are big ones if they are to put their schedule with a 3-1 record, having lost only to Western Maryland batsmen in a close 5-4 decision.

Only four of the Tri-County League teams got their season pen was their second one in as many games. Charles Town's en- try in the league defeated them in the opener in Great Cacapon, April 24, by an ~2 score. It took a 9th inning two-run rally by Bakerton to turn defeat into victory, however, as the Mor- gan Countians had a 4-3 lead going into the final frame. It was back-to-back doubles by Larry Clark and Roger Twigg which gave Great "Cacapon a 5-2 lead over Bakerton in the fifth frame and the score remained that way until the 8th when Bak. erton pushed over a single run and rallied for two more in the ninth. Alvin Russell went all the way for Bakerton and although he gave up 10 hits, he scattered them very effectively and sprinkled in between hits some 11 strikeouts.
