BTonrlay Evening, May 21, 1962 Logansporf, ]|ndiana, Pharos-Tribune Seven Castof f s Causing Plenty Of ace: Essegian Paces March of Rejects By JOE SABGIS UPI Sports Writer ' It's beginning to look like the "year of the castoff" in the major leagues. In baseball parlance, the "cast off" is a reject, a retread or simply a guy for whom a club no longer has any use. This year a whole contingent of players storied Off with the "castoff" label—guys like Chuck Essegian of the Indians, Bo Belinsky of the Angels, Billy Pierce of the Giants and Frank Thomas of the Mats, to name a few, Given a chance to make good with new teams, 1962's "castoffs" are causing a lot of red faces in many front offices. Essegian, turned down by five other major league clubs, had four nils in eight at-bats, including two home runs that helped the Indians set an American League record, split a doubleheader with the Detroit Tigers and remain in a first-place tie with the New York Yankees. - Set Homer Mark His two homers and six others gave the Indians .a total of 25 for. eight games, breaking *he old AL record of 22'sat by the Yankees last year. Cleveland won the opener, 7-6, but lost the nightcap, 8-6. Bubba Phillips' ninth-inning single broke up the first game, while Jim Running's three-inning relief stint helped the Tigers gain the split in the second game. The two homers gave Essegian 10 for the season in only. 23 games ^and helped 'boost his batting average to .385—fops in the AL. Al Kaline tot two homers for the Tigers in the nightcap -to take over the AL lead with 12. The Yankees, meanwhile,, downed the Minnesota Twins, 4-3, but lost, 4-2, in the 13-inning second game; the Los Angeles Angels swept the Boston Red Sox, 5-3 -and 1-0; the Chicago White Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles twice, by 8-3 scores, and the Kansas City Athletics nipped the Washington Senatans, 1-0, and then lost, 7-5. Mets Win Two In the National League, the New York Mets beat the Milwaukee Braves, 7-6 and J-6; the San Francisco Giants widened then- lead to 4'/£ games by bouncing back to beat the Houston Colts, 7-4, after dropping a ft-5 decision; the Chicago Cubs swept the Philadelphia Phillies, 64 and 11-2; the Pittsburgh Pirates downed, the Cincinnati Reds, 8-2, and the St. Louis Cardinals edged Los Angeles, 4-3, to take over second place by 13 percentage points: Major League Results By United ress International American League (First game) Kansas City 00ft 000 001— 150 Washington 000 000 000— 051 Rakow (4-2) and Azcue.

Joseph Wins 500 Keg Show INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — Joe Joseph, Lansing, Mich., was richer by $15,800 today after roll' ing 480 for two games in the finals of the "500 Festival Bowling Extravaganza" in Indianapolis Sun day. Billy Golembiewski, Detroit, took second spot in the 550,000 Tournament • of Champions . by bowling 416 for the two games. He received prize money of $10,000. In third spot was Carmen Salvino, Chicago, with a 408 total for the two games. He received $4,000. I Sunday was the windup of the $80,000 extravaganza which opened last Tuesday with some of the country's top keglers competing. Minnesota Girl Takes Golf Meet LAFAYETTE, Ind. (UPI)-Darline Anderson of the University Minnesota fired a 77-85—162 to win the first annual Midwest Women's Collegiate ._Golf Tournament at Purdue Saturday. Close -behind was Andy Cohn of Northwestern University .who carded a 78-86—164 to take second place. Third was Julie Hull, the Women's champion from Purdue who scored 168. Sharon Miller :r of Western Michigan was fourth with 170. '.'•'• » -rfr Tif'-j-¥ t l'r-''-""•**''" "° Rambling At Random A couple of Logansport drivers (but decided to try .for 15 feet. We met with accidents over the week-'.watched his fast two attempts end at the Kokomo Speedway. ; and he missed both without really Larry Gunter was taken to St. coming close/ Denhart then ap- loseph's Hospital in Kokomo with a leg injury. It was later reported that first indications did hot lend toward a serious injury. He rolled over twice,' with the car _;oing up on its nose and landing on top of the retaining wall in the southeast turn. Gunter had also rolled over Saturday night. Dave Dubois of Logansport rolled over Saturday night in the south turn but .was not hospitalized. * * * We were looking over the Little League field (Crnin Park) last week and in .just a few short weeks the 1962 season will be underway. The field looks to be in good shape and the outfield grass is as thick as any you'll find any- •wherc. Speaking of Little League the, officers, board of directors and managers will meet Wednesday evening at Memorial Home at 7:30 p.m. One of the items on the agenda is the picking of the players to fill out the rosters. . * * ii' The Logansport High School golf team incurred two situations that put them but oK contention during Friday's sectional inept. On the seventh hole Jim Wickersham was addressing his putt when he accidentally moved his ball with the clubhead only a few inches. Playing the ball from that spot he'-missed his next putt and finished the hole with a three. Then playing a provisional ball he knocked -in the putt from where it was originally and this would have been a 'three. He was forced to take the five. On the 16th hole Dick Gray walked into the rough and found a ball that w^s the same make and number us the one he had been playing. He hit the shot and then walked on to find another ball of exactly the same description. This one was his.real ball. For hitting the wrong ball he was subjected to a two-stroke penalty. As everything turned out the Berries' missed the state trip by five strokes and if these two tough breaks hadn't occurred the Logan squad would have missed by just one. As Dykeman Park pro John Carithcrs said later, "Then you'd have really felt bad." This is so true. Every member of the team would have then re-played every shot to get that extra, stroke. * * * Track Coach Fred Kinder was telling us of the regional meet held at Fort Wayne last Saturday. It seems that as the relays started the rain was really coming down and covered the track from rail to rail. Kinder jokingly said that one boy running in the mile relay fell down and his body wasn't found until the next day, the water was so deep. But seriously,' he said that one (cam dropped the baton and had trouble finding the slick in the water. We took in the Big Ten track meet at Lafayette Saturday but left about five minutes before we should have. As usuial the pole vault was still going on after everything else was finished. Michigan's Ron Denhart cleared the 14-10 barrier anil'was all alone parently decided to take a little rest before s, attempting his final vault. When he sat down we decided to leave. He made the vault and it was ^measured at 15-%. , * * «• • We. really enjoyed the meet as a whole and especially got a kick out of watching Michigan's Ergas Leps win the mile run for the third year in a row. Iowa ran three milcrs and one was tlierc during the first two laps for one purpose — to keep Legs boxed in so that he wouldn't run off with the event. The runner did a good job and Leps was forced inside during those two laps and then again during the third by the other miters starting to make their bids, On, the fourth lap Leps finally moved into contention and coming out of the final turn was running stride ; for stride-with Iowa's Jim Tucker. Some might have thought that with all the wprk Leps had been forced to do in fighting his way out of the crowd that he was too tired to finish with a kick. But as many put it later, he was just playing with Tucker. Leps simply lost the opposition in the last 160 yards and won easily. * » * • Michigan won the meet and also took the tennis championships at Minneapolis. But the Wolverines- were upset by Wisconsin in a doubleheader at Madison and finished second in the baseball race behind Illinois. The other weekend championship went to the Hoosier of Indiana who topped Purdue by five strokes for the golf crown. Mike Toliuszis took individual honors with a 288 total. * * * Here's a new slant on Indiana high school athletics. One of the high school golf sectional meets this weekend was held in, of all places, Michigan. Here is apparently what happened. The IHSAA added two more sectionals this year, one being in Logansport. Logan area golfers used to go to LaPorte. This left tlie northeast corner of the state without a tourney. South Bend was the natural site, but the IHSAA couldn't get anyone interested in South Bend so they called 'Elkhiart. Authorities at Elkhart contacted three golf courses in the area but none were interested. Finally Elkhart athletic dircc'tor Glenn Silcott contacted Four Lakes Country Club professional Don Swish- cr at Adamsvillc, Michigan who said OK. Four Lakes is just across the stale line. Would this ever happen in bas kctball? DICK WATTS TRIPLE TIES WORCESTER, Mass.

Heat Bothers Drivcis It probably would have been even faster but for the he£,t wave which "last Saturday soared to a record 141 degrees on this track surface and hit 130 Sunday. When the trials were finished, ie overall picture also included: —Four "500" winners made the grade — defending champion A. I.

Wilson, who had qualified at 46.086, becomes fee first alter i ate, should one of Hie 33 fail to itarf May 30. Hero of Day The hero Sunday was Hurlubise, ivho held the tack records for one and four Japs before Jones' re'c ird-shattering sprint. He wrecked lis car in a qualification run Saturday but came back 10 minutes 3efone,the trials ended Sunday in five-year-old roadster to post the day's second. - fastest speed — 46.963, That same car won the >ole .position in 1958 with Dick lafimann at the wheel.
