LEGION NOTES - The loss by Post 135 was their fourth of the season against one victory, while Naugatuck is now 1-0. The win was the first for Bert Hughes as an American Legion coach. Hughes took over this season for Joe Bojkowho is helping manage the team along with Ray Legenza... Kelly Dullard who was an assistant coach last season and Gary Woodlield are helping run the team with Hughes... Naugatuck drew 11 bases on balls to go along with their 13 hits and the Waterbury team helped the locals by committing six errors... Frank Johnson was the master of ceremonies for a brief ceremony by the Legion before the game. Representing Mayor Rado was Burgess Robert Burns who has two sons playing on the local team. Also on hand was Commander William Schmdke and the Post 17 color guard. . . Breen Field was in horrendous condition. It's reported that in order to prepare the field Park Department personnel hare to be paid overtime. It seems that some arrangement can and should be made to get the field In shape. Because of deep ruts, several balls took bad bounces and three or four runs lost their stride while running the bases. It doesn't seem right that someone should have to be injured seriously before something is done about the field on weekends.. .While on the subject, one has to wonder why no water can be piped to the facility, not only for Legion games but for the many Babe Ruth games that are played on the field....
