District finals Sidney coach wants more magic from ace CHICK LLDW1G Staff SporU Writer SPRINGFIELD It's do secret. Everybody knows what Sidney High School baseball coach Dave King is going to do He's simply going to ask his star pitcher. Eric Jaques, to work Ms Magic again oo Friday. "1 don't want to hurt Eric's arm. bat I would like to see him come back and pitch oo Friday." King said. "He's capable of doing it, but be has to want to do it. He's our best." King's comments came Wednesday after Jaques led Sidney to a 10-7 victory ovtr Northmont in the Troy Class AAA district semifinals at Springfield Municipal Stadium. Jaques, a 5- foot-11, 170-pound senior, scattered four hits in two separate appearances over 5 innings, struck out 10 and belted a 400-foot solo home run in the rain-delayed, 4 '2 -hour marathon. THE VICTORY pushed Sidney's record to 18-5-1, gave Jaques an 8-2-1 mark and earned the top-seeded Yel-lowjackets a berth in the district finals against 15-9 Vandalia-Butler Friday at 4 p.m. at Springfield Municipal Stadium. Second-seeded Butler KOd Troy, 5-4, in the semifinal nightcap which ended at 9:45 p.m. on Tony Mahan's bases-loaded single in the bottom of the seventh inning. "I'm gonna try to start Friday," Jaques said. "If I'm ready, I'll be there. "I just want to be in Columbus (for the state tournament) we all do. Getting there and winning it. That's what we've been working for all season." Jaques SIDNEY AND NOtTHMONT played one Korsssaa hnatag when a thunderstorm drasMhai tfc fleM. interrupting paay until 5 p m "If the game woukl've been against two local teams, I'd have called it," tournament director Duane Baker said. "But the field was in pretty good shape and we decided to go for It." Sidney built a 9-2 lead thanks to three runs in the second, third and fourth innings. Designated-hitter Roger Williams highlighted Sidney's second with a bases-loaded triple. "That keyed us right there," center-fielder Jose Casiano said. "The Intensity was broken." THE YELLOW JACKETS then took advantage of two singles, two walks and two balks against Northmont pitchers Brian Bushong and Jim Carr in the third. Jaques and Casiano ripped back-to-back solo shots in the fourth and Matt Clayton scored the third run of the inning when he singled, stole second and motored home on Jon Crusey s double. Northmont finally touched Jaques for three runs in the fifth, but the 'Jackets added a run in the sixth and that's when King asked Clayton to protect a 10-5 lead. Clayton, who started at shortstop, yielded two runs on two hits in the sixth. And Northmont had two on base with one out in the bottom of the seventh when Jaques, who had moved over to first, came back to pitch. Jaques retired Randy Robison on a high fly to left and struck out Matt Miller swinging on a 3-and-2 pitch to end it. "Jaques flat-out beat us," said Northmont Coach Chuck Harlow, whose T-Bolts fell to 15-14. "He's just an outstanding pitcher and a heads-up kid." "Eric's one of the finest baseball talents I've ever worked with," King said. Aaron happy with low profile . Continued from Page 25. swers. He avoids controversy and gives straight company line answers. Example ... on blacks in the front office: "I hope there will be more, though I don't have anybody in mind. I don't know if there is a conspiracy to keep blacks out. I hope not." EXAMPLE ... on the drug issue in baseball: "I don't see anything wrong with it (Commissioner Pete Ueberroth's drug-testing program). We installed a drug testing program for our minor league teams this year. We (baseball) have a problem, but no more than General Motors. Ours is magnified." Example ... on a possible baseball strike: "One thing I'd hate to see is a strike. I hope the players and owners sit down and work it out, get something signed and get on with the business of playing baseball." On designated hitters Example ... on the designated hitter debate: "When I finished my career in the American League, I couldn't adapt to it. I was used to playing offense and defense. I just hope they make It uniform, either use it in both leagues or don't use it in either league." That's Hank Aaron. Nothing there to scream, "Stop the presses." "I think that what you will find is that as baseball goes on and my record is more established, people will feel the same way about me as they feel about Babe Ruth," Aaron said. Probably not. Aaron certainly deserves the recognition for his accomplishments in 23 major league seasons, but what they'll remember about Hank Aaron is that he cut the legs out from under Babe Ruth ... the man they consider the "inventor" of the home run, the man who made it a dominant force in baseball. After 21 seasons In the Braves' system, Aaron finished his career with two seasons as a Milwaukee Brewer, saying he played the last two years when he really didn't want to play. Once again avoiding controversy, he preferred not to say why, other than there were some things in Atlanta "I couldn't work out." Personal things. "Those last two years I only had warning track power . . . and that don't get you nothing," he said. "I was making $240,000 then (1976) and that's tip .noney now." Now, Hank Aaron "travels too much," quietly watching over Atlanta's farm system, happy to do it. "Be a manager? No aspirations whatever. I'm happy in the front office." Legends aren't made that way.
