Yer Out GOSHOGAWARA, Japan, May 19 LP)--This northern Honshu city of 50,000 a baseball-mad com munity in baseball-crazy Japan-has 31 squads playing in its summer and autumn tournaments. But there aren't enough quali- tied umpires to officiate the games. To solve the shortage, the city council ruled that each team to qualify for tournament play must submit at least 10 names. The tenth man is an umpire. Defending Champ VanDervoort's To Meet Spartan Motors By WIN CHEAL (Journal Sports Writer) - Band music . . . color guard . . . dedication of the park . . . presentation of the new scoreboard . . . and more will combine to make Tuesday's launching of the city recreation baseball season the most colorful ever held here. VanDervoort's, defending city champion, will play Spartan Motors in the opener. The Motors nine is the same team which nlaved under snonsorshiD of the ' Meridian Merchants last season. Six teams are ready to battle for the championship and the right to represent Lansing in district playoffs which then lead to the state tournament at Battle Creek over the .Labor Day weekend. Besides VanDervoort's. only Red Whitine Used Cars is back from last season under the same spon sor, and George s Barber Shop has ;oined Whiting in sponsoring that team. SCHMIDT'S BACK Returning' after a few years'. absence is Schmidt's Super Market under the experienced guidance of Lyle Belknap. Larry Mangles will manage Spartan Motors, with Carl Quick taking over the VanDervoort's team. Whiting-George's has Kirby Tomlinson as manager. Newcomer Lansing Merchants will be under direction of George Layman, and Howard Gee is manager of the Midway Opti-mist-Holden Reid team, also new this season. ' Tht Eatoh Rapids Islanders also had submitted an entry, but under an agieement made prior to acceptance of any entries, the league was limited to six teams. Lansing sponsors received first consideration. Hopes of creating another league disappeared when expected entr'ts failed to materialize. The season is made up of two 10-game halves, with the first round ending June 29 and the second starting July 9. Tentative plans have been made to revive the Central Michigan Invitational tournament which proved popular a few years ago. It would be played during the 10 days between rounds. The regular season ends August 10. Highlights of the opening night ceremonies will be the park dedi- erman, presentation of the new electric scoreboard by Louis A. Weil, publisher of The State Journal, and introduction of city council and park board members. Mayor Bowerman also will throw the first balL h AYE EN IS M. C. Charles Hayden, who will take over July 1 from retiring Carl Fenner as director of the parks department, is to act as master of ceremonies for the program. Sexton high school's pep band will furnish music before the game. Oldsmobile division of General Motors arranged transportation for the band. Lansing post of the Catholic War Veterans plans presentation of a new flag for the park, with a color guard scheduled to perform the ceremony. A glance at team rosters reveals that VanDervoort's again will be the team to beat, with addition of infielders Paul Abraham, Dave Campbell, and Jerry Sutton strengthening the veteran team. Roger May, back after missing most of last season, Dick Jones and Jack Nutter make up the champions' pitching staff. TWO CHALLENGERS? Early estimates rate Schmidt's and Knarfan Mntnrc ac f ha toame likely to give Van's the mostj trouble, with Holden Reid-Midway j Optimist a darkhorse choice if its squad of high school players performs well. Whiting-George's also has the potential to cause trouble, given steady pitching. Untested Lansing Merchants likely will have the hardest struggle making bead-way. Schmidt's will go with Dick Ramont, Bob Stragier, Chuck Holton, and Kent Bostwick on its mound staff. Other well-known names on the roster are Terry Ramont, Tom Truscott, Rick Ra- cation by Mayor Willard I. Bow- See OPENER Page F-5, Col 5 AMERICAN LEAGUE W L Pet.
