Si* IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, I RON WOOD, MICHIGAN THURSDAY, JUNE 10, IMS. • 5 Teams Have Joined Loop for 1965 Campaign The 1965 Western Upper Peninsula High School Baseball League will get under way Monday with a pair of games involving four of the five teams participating in the league tliih season. The league number is down to five because of the dropping out of Ewen. The remainder of the teams, however, are'the same as last year's competitors. Monday's opening games will pit last year's champion I r o n- wood Red Devils against the league winners of the 1963 campaign, the Bessemer Speed STANDINGS Boys at Ironwood. The Bergland Vikings, runner-up to Ironwood last season, will travel to tangle with the Hurley Midgets at Montreal Field. Hurley wound up in the league cellar at the end of last year's season. The other team that will be playing in the league this season is the White Pine Warriors, I n\^l^ TT ^J^JW l*^SIL I \J+\^Ot*t 1 r\NXI^ TT X^^^lSf FY»| Wni^w^^i™ U.P. Baseball League to Start Season Monday Kaat of Twins Finds Stitch in Time Might Have Saved Victory Tf there's one thing Jim Kaat needs, it's a seamstress. Kaat. the Minnesota Twins nee left-hander, found out about n stilrri in time saving two runs Wednesday night when he was ordered to make some alterations on his sweat shirt during the ninth inning and wound up losing to Cleveland 2-1. The incident occurred with Kaat, working on a three-hitter in the ninth and trying to protect a l-O lead over the Indians.

The umpire ordered Kaat to the dugout to have both sleeves shortened, eliminating the hole and laeping the sleeves the same length. When Kaat returned to the mound he proceeded to walk Colavfto on two more pitches and then was tagged for a game winning homer by Max Alvis. It was the second time this season Tebbetts had complained about Kaat's tailoring. On April 28 at Cleveland, Tebbetts complained in the first inning that one nf Kaat's sleeves was longer than the other. The two sleeves were evened out in the dugout. When Kaat returned that time, Alvis was the batter. Right. Alvis hit a homer. Despite the loss, the American league-leading Twins remained 2M> games in front of the Chicago White Sox, who lost to Boston 4-2. Elsewhere, Detroit downed the Los Angeles who will get into action next! mer Slow-Pitch Softball League Last week's play in the Besse-! Angels 4-2, Washington edged Thursday. * * * Ironwood captured the league title last season with a 9-1 record while Bergland wound up in second place with an 8-2 tally. White Pine was third in the final count with a 6-4 record, followed by Bessemer with 5-5, Ewen with 2-8 and Hurley with 0-10. This will be the eighth season for the league which was organized in 1958 as a successor to the Michigan-Wisconsin Conference's summer baseball program. During its 1958 debut the league was comprised of four teams — Ironwood, Bessemer, Wakefield and Ontonagon. Hurley joined in 1959 and Mellen in 1960 and the circuit operated with six teams during the 1960 and 1961 seasons. Wakefield, Ontonagon and Mellen left the league at t he start of the 1962 campaign and Bergland stepped in as a new member to give the league four teams for the '62 season. White Pine and Ewen were added to the league's roster in I9ti3, bringing the total to six o n ce again; but with the dropping of Ewen this season the members again number five. The league teams will play each of the other four teams a total of two times during the season with two games scheduled for each week starting Monday until July 16 when the competition ends. The schedule is set up on a home and borne basis. * * * Most of the games will be played on Monday and Thursday with the exception of the week of July 6 when the Monday night affair will be played on Tuesday because of the -Independence Day holiday on Monday. Again this season the games will be played in the evenings to allow more adults to attend. Starting time for the games will be at 6 p.m., except for Bessemer's home games which will begin at 7:30 because of the lighted field facilities at t * e Bessemer park. Bessemer will, however, play the first portion of its schedule on Ironwood's field because o f . the work that will be going on at the Bessemer diamond. Hurley will play all its home games at the. Montreal field as in years past while all of t h e remaining teams will play their home games on fields in their communities. ; Wayne Melchiori will again be at the helm of the Red Devil squad, a job that he took over from Harold Palmer at the start , of last year's season. Bill Zell * will again be in charge of the | Hurley Midgets and Ed Smith I will be guiding the Bergland I nine.

Leading the hitting for Cram blit's was Jerry Morin with four for five at the plate. The winning pitcher was Searle and Peterson was tagged with the loss. The White Birch Inn once again displayed its power with the bat as it trounced Poor Joe's 33-5 at Underwood Field. Player-mana ger Al Sally was the winning hurler and Joe Jurasin suffered the loss. In a game played at Erwin. Fiori's bombed the East Inn Young with 29 hits and won by the score of 26-5 included In the 29 hits were home runs by R. Bennetts, A. Hendricksbn and G. Korpi. Anglim pitched the win with help in the late innings from L. Perotti. Salmela took the loss. The East Inn Old downed the Anvil unit 10-7 with the winners scoring all of the 10 runs in the first inning and displaying a fine defensive effort to rack up the victory. Doug Syreini led all hitters with a pair of home runs for the winning squad and Rizzie was the winning hurler while O'Donahue was the loser. Baltimore 3-2 in 10 innings and the New York Yankees whipped Kansas City 5-1. Kaat, now 5-6, was involved in a scoreless duel with the Indians' Ralph Terry until tne Twins pushed across a run in the eighth on a double by Jerry Kinriall, Kaat's bunt and a wild throw by catcher Joe Azcue on the play and a sacrifice fly by Zoilo Versalles. Tebbetts then took a hand, apparently shaking up Kaat, and Terry finally posted the lOOtli victory of his career.

Due to the fact that both Ironwood and Bessemer teams are participating in the league this season, it will be referred to as the Ironwood-Bess e m e r Babe Ruth League in the future. The Spartans crossed the plate with one tally in the top half of the first inning and the Giants came up in their half of the stanza to even the odds at 1-1. Ed Niemi, the Giant pitcher, blanked the Spartans in the top of the second inning and the Giant power prevailed as they smashed out seven runs to take an 8-1 lead into the third. The Spartans failed to come up with the required amount of runs in the third inning, but they did manage to whittle the Giant advantage to 8-3 v.-ith a pair of scores in the inning. The G i a nts toughened up their defensive game in the final four innings to blank the Spartans and the winners went on to score another three runs to add up the final tally. Niemi went all the way for the Giants and allowed six hits and struck out five. Ciesielczyk performed the mound chores for the losers, allowing 11 hits and striking out six. Koivisto had a good night at the plate for the Giants with two doubles and a single. Palmgren tallied for two singles and a double.

Kivi was the leading hitter for the losing nine as he connected for three singles. PORTHCAWL, Wales (AP) — The seven American survivors in the British Amateur Championship ran into a battery of champions today, well aware it will take some great golf to keep the star spangled banner flying by nightfall. The doughty seven survived some hard shelling over the 6,- 700-yarci, par 72 Royal Porch- cawl links Wednesday. Led by Bill Hyndman of Philadelphia, Hunter McDonald of Detroit and Bob Gardner of Essex Pells, N.J., they put up such a respectable show that .two British Walker Cup stars fell in their \vakc. i Hyndman drew one of the i toughest assignments of the day. j He was pitted against Scotland's Ronnie Shade, who either blows hot or cold, and when he's hot its Katie bar the door. Gardner, 44-year-old Walker Cupper, was matched with Alan Thirlwell, 38-year-old, two-time champion of- England. McDonald squeezed by Wednesday by beating former champion Dick Chapman of Palm Beach, Fla., on the 19th green. John Miles of New York City, who never before reached such heightr in his casual golfing career, found himself up against the redoubtable Joe Carr of Ireland, Britain's Walker Cup captain this year.. JacK Penrose, 51, of Philadelphia, took on 16-year-old Peter Townsend, England's hottest youngster at the moment. Jim Campbell, Rochester, N.Y., who surprisingly knocked out English star David Marsh, 2 and 1, was up against Scotland's Jim Walkinshaw. Jack Thornton, also of Rochester, N.Y., had a 2 and 1 win over Ireland's Walker Cup member, David Sheahan, and he faced Bob J ernes of England. Pearson cf .... 4' E.G.

This brought the blue rib- "oon mile mark to France for the first time since 1931 when Jules Ladoumegue was clocked in 4:08.2. In Tuesday night's race, Gerald Vervoort was second in 3:59.9. Ironically, Jazy does not think of the mile as his best distance. He prefers the 5,000 meters. But he said outright before the race that he was going for a world record, and he made it. He then gave warning that he was going to shoot for a sensational exploit in tin 5,000 meters Friday night in Paris. In the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome, Jazy finished a badly beaten second in the 1.500 met- iers. For the 1964 Games, he decided to switch to the 5,000 meters. But in Tokyo, he was Bothered by the pace and used up his energy passing other runners, then being passed. When he saw he could not win, or even take second, he faded back to fifth and said that the only thing he really cared for was the gold medal. That setback has rankled him since Tokyo. It took Jazy almost three years to get back his confidence after he was beaten by 30 meters by Herb Elliott of Australia in the 1,500 meters in Rome. Jazy's mile record capped an amazing series of races in the space of one week. On June 2, he ran the fastest mile by a European with a time of 3:55.5 at Saint Maur, a Paris suburb. On June 6, at Lorient, he erased the old European record for the 5,000 meters with a time of 13:344 In Paris he will be aiming for the 13:25.8 record for 5,000 meters set by Ron Clarke of Australia last week in Los Angeles. Herman Franks would like to give Willie Mays a day off, but every time the San Francisco Giants' star earns a rest he gives his manager another reason for keeping him on the job Weary Willie, who came into New York two days ago nursing a heavy cold and a deflated batting average, worked over the Mets Wednesday night for the second straight game, driving in three runs with a single and his 18th homer in the Giants' 4-2 victory. The previous night Mays had ended an O-for-18 famine by doubling home two first-inning runs chat stood up for a 2-1 decision over the National League ;tail- enders.

Wednesday's night's spurt gave Willie 41 RBI and a .324 batting mark for the season. Ernie Banks rapped a three- run homer, lifting the Chicago Gubs past Milwaukee 4-2 in an afternoon game and boosting his RBI lead to 48. Philadelphia knocked off the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-3, Pittsburgh ripped Houston 11-3 and St. Louis beat Cincinnati 6-4 in other Nationaj League night games. Mays put the Giants ahead J- 0 in the first inning with a towering drive over the left centerfield fence following a walk to Dick Schofield. The Mets pulled even in the fourth on Charlie Smith's two-run homer but Mays broke the deadlock in the eighth after losing pitcher Jack Fisher opened . the gates by nicking winner Gaylord Perry with a fast ball. Schofield singled Perry to second and the pitcher scored on Mays' hit to left. A walk to Jim iHart and Willie McCovey's infield single sent Schofield across with an insurance run. Banks powered Chicago from behind with a first-pitch homer off Wade Blasingame in the seventh after two-out singles by Billy Willams and Ron Santo. The Cubs, blanked • by Blasingame over the first six innings, then padded the lead on a run- scoring double by pinch hitter Harry Bright. Tony Taylor's three-run homer in the third inning led Philadelphia past . the first-place Dodgers and ruined the major league debut of .Los Angeles southpaw Mike Kekich, The 20- year-old rookie lasted.., 3 1-3 innings, giving up two hits and five walks. .
