The two clubs won 4 games each and lost one during the first round of the Navy league which is composed of seven teams.

The pressure was on the Bronson cluithis week. Trailing by one game at the end of the first round, the Bombers were called upon to defeat the strong Whiting field team- to stay in the running. It was a tough assignment since Bobble Fox, former Tennessee star had been inserted Into the Whiting lineup. The Bombers trimmed their opponents 8 to 3 and won the right to face Faufley in the playoff which will be for one game only. The win was particularly significant since Bronson is also the defending champions of the league.

Five of last year's championship clubs, which was good enough to defeat Waldron field of Corpus Chrlsti. are on the present team. They are: Ted Williams, Bob Kennedy, Pete Petrich, Lonnie Heina and Tom Lindsay. Sauflev has some outstanding talent which includes Tommle Neal, Latta, Eddie Owcar and Bob Smith, Since the Saufley diamond is on the outside of the station, the public can view the game.
