BASEBALL FANS were still buzzing this week over the classy defensive plays turned in last Sunday in the con- tes between the Legion and the Washington FBI ball clubs. Ernie Cage, the FBI's great, shortstop, really came through with a dandy stop on the second base side of the infield when the locals had the sacks loaded with two out, to get his man by a whisker at first base. On the Legion side of the picture, Chalky Hopkins again brought the inns to their feet, and Chalky has been making a habit ol doing such things recently, when he made two great catches in centerfield. Then, Wimpy Zombro at third base and Flick Bond at second, gave the fans far more than their 65 cents worth with some really big league stops and throws of hard-hit groud balls. Truly, a gilt-edge exhibition of semi-pro baseball from the opening pitch. EXPECTING PLENTY of top opposition this Sunday from Baltimore's highly-rated Leone's ball club, Manager Woody Waiters scheduled practice sessions for both Wed- nesday and Saturday of this week.. He said he plans to start Bucky Bolyard on the mound with Al Malachuck doing the catching. Ray Jamison, who has been away for the past two weeks at an officer's camp, is expected to be on hand and take over his old spot at third base.
