CHALKY HOPKINS not only contributed one of the greatest catches ever witnessed at Charles Town's Legion Park last Sunday in the contest with the Camp Lejeune Marines, his rifle-shot throw from center field in an at- tempt to nail a runner going into third base in the seventh inning was a real gem. From our position in the pre s box; it looked as if Chalky had the ru ner by two or three steps, but the umpire (Jack Eby) was down there in the middle of the diamond and not too far from third base, and he saw the play the other way and called the runner safe. Let me tell you people, that was some throw and that catch--well, the boys were still talking about it well after mid-night on the street corners Sunday night.
