Wednesday Evening, June 5, 1957. Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Fifteen Berries Claim Third In NCC Baseball Standings Logan Rallies to Nip Richmond for 6th Win Once-Beaten Marion Giants Apparently Are Conference Champions After Blanking Tech of Indianapolis, 3-0. Unless somebody finds a different solution to this contused North Central conference baseball arrangement, Logansport apparently nailed down third place in the standings as a result of Tuesday's closing 2 to 1 conquest of Richmond. Marion, meanwhile, is claiming the championship on the basis of its 7-1 record and the fact that no other contender has fewer than two losses on their baseball record. Dick Persinger shut out Tech on two hits, 3 to 0, to clinch the title, although the Giants still have a makeup contest against Jell of Lafayette on the books. The two rival battled to a scoreless tie in five innings at Lafayette April 26 before rain called a halt. The picture becomes clouded •when you consider that Tech and Jeff also have a makeup game, but Tech officials reportely told Marion they did not plan to play it since the Indianapolis school term is complete. In that case, a Marion-Lafayette tussle would have no bearing on Twelve Mile Little League Set to Open TWELVE MILE — Twelve Mile will open its first Little League baseball campaign with a parade at 6 o'clock Thursday evening under the direction of the Lions' club. Units will form at the east end of the community near the site of the new medical building and travel down to the ball park. Jack Rockey will manage the Dodgers, assisted by Don Book- waiter and Larry Moss. The Flying Aces will be skippered by Fred Skiner with Harold Johnston and Richard Bookwalter as coaches. Dale Skinner will direct the Hawkeyes with Yoris Lowe and John Yeargin serving as coaches. Wally Townsend heads the Blue Thursday's Games Chicago at Brooklyn, night Milwaukee at New York Cincinnati at Philadelphia, night St. Louis at Pittsburgh the pennant since Marion still Caps, assisted by Don Heiden and •would boast a higher percentage even losing to Jeff. From these scrambled figures George Kundle, Sr. Managing the Flying Hatchets will be Howard Corn with Karl emerge the following standings of; Sm ' tf > a "d George Kundle, Jr., as 'coaches. The Yankee manager is Jerry Lambert and Rodger Strasser and Sherman Kantzer coaching. the live leaders.

Pat O'Connor launched the uprising with a walk and scored when Richmond third baseman Shook, attempting a force out, overthrew second base on Larry Jones' pinch grounder. Sweet then singled Jones home with the tiebreaker. Richmind managed to dent the scoring column off Everett Thomas in the sixth on an error, stolen base and Ken Wright's single. Thomas allowed the Red Devils seven hits and walked two. Logansport collected six safeties, two by Fred Schue, off the slants of Ron Cougill, who also walked a pair. The victory hiked the Berries overall record to 13-3. Coach Rex Hunter also announced that Phil Berndt and Harry Elliott would receive identical trophies since each boasted a top batting mark of .360. The box score: Logansport . AP.

Haddix, a slight 170 - pounder dubbed "The Kitten," tied up the muscular Cincinnati Redlegs in knots to give foe Phillies a 3-1 victory Tuesday night while Pierce, who scales about 165 pounds, fired a two-hitter that enabled the White Sox to shade the Boston Red Sox, 1-0, in 10 innings. Haddix' victory moved the dark- horse Phillies to within a game and a half of the first-place Red- legs in the National League race and Pierce's triumph maintained the White Sox' five - game bulge over the New York Yankees in the American League chase. Haddix shut out the Redlegs with one hit for seven innings and yielded their only run in the eighth on Ed Bailey's triple and. land Indians, the Washington Senators beat the Detroit Tigers, 4-3, and th Baltimore Orioles scored a 9-7 win over the \Kansas City A's in other American League activity. Sandy Koufax struck out 12 batters in 7 2-3 innings but needed relief aid from Clem Labine to nail down the Dodger victory. A two-run double by Roy Campanella and Duke Snider's 10th homer helped the Dodgers pile up an early 6-0. lead against Dick Drott before Koufax weakened. .Dusty Rhodes singled home Yesterday's Results Cinci.
