Righthander Buddy Custer pull ed the "iron man" stunt Sunday when he pitched both ends of the twin-bill for the Martinsburg VFW and stopped the Winches- ter team by scores of 9-1 and 5-3. At the same time Bakerton was having a fairly easy time down- ing the Tomahawk 'Indians 13-3. In the other league games Lar ry Miller hurled the Sleepy Creek batsmen to an exciting 3-2 vic- tory over the Winchester Rebels, limiting the Virginians to two hits; and the Berkeley Place Yanks scored a close 7-6 victory over Leetown. In hurling both ends of the twin bill for the VFW Custer gave up only a total of eight hits in the two games, coming within two outs of having a no-hitter in the first game. It was a single by Buckner in the seventh inning which spoiled Custer's no.hitter in the first game. He fanned eight Winches- ter batsmen in this game. In the second game he again proved to be most effective, hold ing the Virginians to a scant sev en hits. Chalky Hopkins 'had a big after noon for VFW getting a homer and two doubles in the first game and two singles in the second af- fair. Charlie Baker had four hits in the twinbill, including two dou bles and Mike Allen came through with four singles. The Vets got 35 safeties in the double header. Meanwhile Tomahawk was throwing a real scare into Baker. ton but the defending Champions ball coach at Charles Town IIigh arrived in Charles Town about 1:15 Tuesday afternon and on re- pm~ing in at the high school found his assistant coach William (Bill) Jordan on hand with some 30 prospective candidates for the 1961 Panther team. After acquain tances were made, Sims and Jor- dan then told the boys of what the training routine will be and what they hoped to accomplish in the month between now and the opening of the 1961 football season. Wednesday morning the boys met at the new senior High School at 8:30 a. m. where first they were given physical examin ations by Dr. W. P. Warden and An error and Dave Walburn's safety set the stage for Tex Hess ler's two-run single in the fourth inning which knotted the score.

He fanned~ eight of the first nine VFW batsmen and walked one man before giv- ing up his first hit. While the Legionnaires were getting this outstanding pitching they were also doing their part to make things easier for Forrest by blasting two Frederick hur- lers for a total of 11 hits and nine runs. The Legion pushed over a run irr the first frame on a single hit when Kanode walked and later scored on a single by Stotler.
