By Don Renteh Ten years ago when Little League 13aseball was enjoying such phencxmenal gTawth and popularity among boys in the eight to 12-year age bracket across the country, a small group of Charles Town and Jefferson county businessmen an4 sports leaders, decided that this was something that ,offered a rare opportunity to build a sound and beneficial program for young boys of Jefferson county, and they took steps to organize a league in the county. These men felt this program provided a vehicle for ealthful recreation during the Summer vacation months ,wherein the boys could compete with each other benefically under capable and responsible leadership. Moreover as the founders of Little League themselves put it: This program should contribute to the well being of both the boys and their parents. It offers a mean through which parents and community leaders may foster in relation with their children, a sanguine solution to many of the current social problems of youth, thus insuring better citizens of tmnorrow. Little League was meant to teach the boys the lessons of fair play, of discipline and team work.. It has been the hope of the Little League program that these lessons would in turn spread from the boys to their families and on into the communities.. Here in Jefferson County, like everywhere else in the /nation where Little League baseball is played, it has en- joyed tremendous interest and growth with more than 200 boys participating each Summer. This year, however, with increased interest in the play of the 12 teams in the two county league , there has been on several occasions a tendency on the part of some parents and other interested adults, to let their enthusiasm for a victory for their favorite team run away with them to the point that it has created a rather bad, and certainly, dis- agreeable situation for the players, the umpires, and even at times the managers and league officials. At times the heckling of'umpires, players and team man- INWOOD, WEST VIRGINIA --STARTS THURSDAY, JULY 13 --FOR TEN (10) BIG DAYS -- FIRST DRIVE- IN SHOWING -- screen's 12 million dollar spectacle] thousands in the cast! years in the joTi' m I man wmw/ mm cram.

Shown above is the second-place Braves Little League team which is now pushing the Dodgers, defending league cl~mptons for the lead in Jefferson Little League play. The Braves missed a won- derful opportunity last week to cut the margin which the Dodgers hold over them when they lost to the Dodgers. The Braves now have a record of six victories as against four defeats.

(Photo By Tim Sinn) agers has been so intense and so mixed with profane and abusive language it has had a definite demoralizing effect upon the boys who are trying to play the game under the rules of fair play, team work and the discipline of their managers and the umpires. When a situation arises that is having such a bad effect upon the boys who are playing the game, it calls for action on the part of those directing the operations of the league. :And last week league officials and team managers took such action.. They are calling upon all parents and other adult fans to refrain from making any disagreement out- wardly either against the umpires, players or managers that would in any way agitate and thus set a bad example for the 'youth. Umpires are hard to get for these Little Leagxte games since they serve voluntarily, receiving noth- ing for their services. League officials, managers and play- ers think they do a good job. In the future it is hoped the fans will thinnk so to, and instead of condemning them, give them a pat on the back for helping to promote a great democratic youth movement which builds character in boys. Give the boys who are playing the game a chance to play their best under the best of conditions. Give them, their managers and the umpires, your cheers and not your ridi- cule..

The third-place Cubs did man- age, however, to gain a little on the Dodgers by scoring a pair of victories, one by a 5-1 score over the Yankees and the other by an 18-5,~core over the Indiansz InS+the Dodgers-Braves battle, Grog Corbin pitched the best ball game of the season in limiting the Braves to one-hit, a single by Grog Stevens in the fifth frame. Burker relieved Corbin in the fifth frame and went the rest of the way. And in addition to hurling fine ball Corbin and Burcker each clouted home runs for the Dod- gers to put" their team in front to stay. Corbin was credited with the victory and Stevens the loss. Thursday evening July 6, the Cubs kept in the pennant racd by scoring the first of two victor- ies during the week. Kitchen lim- ited the Yankees to one run and six hits in beating them by a 5-1 score. The Yankees had a 1-0 lead over the Cubs until the fourth frame and then Whittington and Wass- on hit back-to.back home runs to lead a attack which the Cubs staged. All the scoring was done in two frames, lhe Yankees getting their run in the first and the Cubs five in the fourth. Whittington was the hitting star of the game, blasting out two other hits in addition to his home run. Then on July 8 the Cubs scored another victory by besting the Indians by an 18-5 score. Wilt and Whittington teamed up to limit the Indians to seven hits and five runs, while their teammates were getting 18 runs on only nine hits. For the second straight game Wasson clouted a home run.

The victory was just what Manager Frank Kidwiller's boys needed to maintain their slim lead because both the redhot Martinsburg VFW batsmen and the Winchester Rebels also came through with wins Sunday. The VFW easily routed the Berkeley Place team from Martinsburg by an 11-4 score; and the Rebels, now the winningest ball club in the circuit, stopped the crippled Tomahawk team by a 7-3. It was the fifth consecutive victory for the Rebels. In the other league battle the Leetown and Winchester teams, battling to stay out of the base- ment, tangled at Leetown with Winchester scoring an 8-1 victory. It was the first time in seven games the Winchester team, now under a new manager, managed to break into the victory column.
