Major Teen-Age Game Saturday No-Hitter For Leo W/eezyk Tt looks like each game played at FreeporCs L'ons Fiela gets better but the one played Wednesday night will be hard to top. In some of the games, which are nearly all in the Teon- Age bracket, the hitting outshines the pilchinhg but it was just opposite Wednesday. Th« Wednesday aam» matched Freeport Bar City in a Mxjor T«n-Ags lilt that 'saw BC notch their opening yictory by scoring one run in lh» first irnino. Bay City's pitcher, who was Caesar Hernandez, tossed a no-hitter at Freeport in aiding the Bsy City win. However, Leo Wleczyk, Freeport's lefthand chun'ier, also had a no-hitter. In our Thursday story we gave Bay CiH- credit for a very questionable bunt single. After looking into it further, and talking to the scorekeeper and umpire, it appears that Freeport errored on the play, thus taking away the Bny City hit. That mean that both Wleciyk and Hermand«« will goi endit for a no-hitter, but Bsy City gets iht 1-0 win. Mosquitoes Bad.... The Wednesday defeat was number two for Freenort. •who, by the way. are the defending champions. However. , both Freep'ort defeats have been by one run, as Lake Jackson j beat them in an opener, by a 3.2 extra inning game. !

Anoth.r item w» f..l Fr**port officials and ie>!d«nts should start to think about and Ih.n do >om*hing about i:. is to build a city swimming pool. Freeport seems to take advantage of the high sohool pool during the summer months, while other county towns Jiave their own municipal pools. The town of Freeport is large enough to have a fine swimming pool that they could be proud of and one that would be large enough to handle all si7.e crowds. Th* small pool at th* S.nior High -will only hold so many. Right now, it i.emi to b* splitting at th* i.amt from th* l«g* crowds thai hiT* b«.n showing up for IMSOM and afternoon dip*. At one time Tuesday afternoon, there was around 250 people in the Senior High pool. If you rion'l think this is too many, just go out and look at the size of that pool. "We seem to think that if Freeport had a good outdoor pool, with some regulation diving boards, they could some good water shows in the summer months. Ttk* this for an .x.mpl. A lirg. crowd is always In th* arc*. wh*n th* Fr««port J«yc.«s hold th«ir fishing Ji.ita. Now that could b* a g-jod tim* to hold < dliing m**t with « t.w IICM thrown in. Fishing Should Improve .... Another fine weekend looms in front of Brazosport ' outdoor types with fishing waters cli-aring up, a good lineup of baseball on tap and fine golf conditions. How.T.r, wtaiher conditions will h«T. « lot to da with th* final outcom*. but al pr.t.nt it ipp.ari that ih* i*mp*rttur*s will b* hot »nd Ih* iki.t p»rtly cloudy.
