The litUle 18-year 91d senior who can throw as well ~s he can field and bat, saved ~a,ny runs for the Charles Town batsmen this pas,t season wiL:h fine throws in from the outfield. And h~s .456 batting average for ~he season certainly played major roles in more than one of the ~harles Town victories. Two other baseballers from high ~ohools in this section also figured 'n the All-Sta.te selections, wit,h .George Houg'h of Harpers Ferry veing ,named an outfielder on the .hird team; and Kenne,t'h Kerns )f Berkeley Springs, being nam- ed as a pitcher on the third team.

Greg Morri Silences Legion's Bats To Give Union ?rinters 5-1 Victory; First for In iEight The Charles Town American Le men put across two more runs on gion baseballers, who were slowed down in their terrific victory mar ch 7 ,by the Camp LeJeuneMar- ines, were completely stopped Sun day afternoon on the Legion field by rGreg Morris and t~he Union Printers of Washingto,n, D. C. as ,the visi,tors came, saw and con- quered ,by a 5-1 score. Although there was already a heai~y breeze blowing w,hen the game got underway, Morris for- ced the Legion to add more force to i~t by fanning a ~otal of 14 bats men. As a m~tter of fact Morris had the Legion batsmen fanning , so much only ,two balls were hie !out of the i,nfield, one of them being a long triple by Chalky Hop kiss. Zombro's single through the pitcher's box 'was the other .ball to go the outfield. The other two I Legion hi~s were of the infield ear tory. I The Legion did manage to score once, but even th,at run came as[ a result of two errors and a field- ers choice. This run .which came in the eight'h frame ruined Grog Morris' bid for a shut out. Big John Goff, star pitcher and first baseman for'the Wes~t Vir- gi,nia University batsmen, was giv en his first starting assignmen~ since joining the Legon and he showed a streak of wildness at the outset. And in the second inning he go,t ino ,trouble a,t the outse~ one hit when B~nroth singled af- ter H. Callas had walked, Culpep- er had sacrificed him around. . ][ ' Denms Alexander of Ma'tms- burg relieved Goff in the sect,rid frwme and then Bucky Bolyard worked the last 5 1/3 innings, set ,Ling :t~he Union Printers down with out a single hit. Singles by Zombro, Doyle and lVIoehler and the tripi~e by ~I-Io,p- kins was all the hitting the Leg- ion could come up with this Su,n- day in contrast to the slug,fe~t ex- hi bi~tions they have been giving in Chalking up their eight consecut- ive victories.
