Page Eight The Portsmouth Herald, Portsmouth, N. H.* Friday Evening, Juno 17, 1949 Sport City By BOB KENNEDY THIS MESSAGE could be devoted to youngsters of Portsmouth who are eligible to play Junior Legion baseball. Their folks might pay attention too. There are no strings attached to playing for the Booma Post nine and no one youngster is going to receive preference ·c-hen i: coaies to selecting a starting lineup. Coach George Ellis has been digging in the hinterlands because.sev- eral of you good Portsmouth ball players in the lower teen-age bracket chose to retire to your own back yards. The fact that several good baseball players in the 14-15 year old group are no: out for the team was brought into the light yesterday. Some of these bovs like to p!ay with neighborhood teams and are not willing to go throigh'the training and long practice drills required by the Junior Legion coach. This condition has been prevalent in Portsmouth for the past three vears. It must be something that the youngsters are obtaining from their older brothers. · * · · THERE IS A slight change coming as football this fall is going to dra-s- some 35 men tor the initial practice drill. These players are coming on special invitation of the coach. Others will follow as the weeks progress. This current crop of athletes is the most indifferent group that Ports- mou-'i has had in several seasons. Boys lack the competitive spirit but it is jus: a cycle and nothing to get worried about because this crowd will drop out'of the picture and become the Congress street cowboy type. The Booma Post nine still can use a lot of baseball players. The team ij far from perfect and positions will remain wide open to any player who can make the grade. That's Ellis' theory and one that he will stick ( to all season long. When you take a look at some of the possible competition for tne Portsmouth team, you do not have to wonder why every youngster who can hit, field or run should be out for the team. Tha: excellent Haverhill high baseball team is intact for the Junior Legion season. It has been winning games by such lop-sided scores as 1S-S. 14-4. and so forth. That is the main reason why Portsmouth must have a strong club. · · · * Ct'FFN'OTES: Big Ed Haubrlch, the Claremont giant who Is a junior at the Universitv of New Hampshire, is working for the state down at Wi:':'is Sands. BiU's Job is cleaning glass out of the sand, raking the beach and keeping the place clean. Bill starred in football and basketball at the university and he is president of the junior class next year. . . Ralph Brooks of Newincton snagged onto a 23 pound striper from the General Sullivan brlcine last Monday. The big fellows are running better this year than they ever have before. . . Many a Dover eyebrow was raised when the iootbaU fans faw the Portsmouth schedule. The Green Wave slashed its" I:*.: to eiKht games and the Clippers took on 10 to give the locals their toucher, sia'.c i: recent years. . . That's wonderful news concerning Alex Nah:c:an. A great football co»ch. Alex has a fine chance to get ahead In thecoileVe circle. . . Dartmouth is the lone college baseball team still playing. However. Harvard and Yale open their annual series over the weekend and wind up at New Haven the day of the boat race.

The final score was 4-2 but before the smoke had cleared away one of the All-Stars was benched. For the first time since he relieved Evans, first baseman Humphries was taken out of the game for "ungentlemanly conduct." The action came as the result of protests by second baseman Jackson of the Seybolt team who claimed that Humphries was "hitting me too hard" when he attempted to tag him off base. Humphries was benched to avoid any further trouble. The S e y b o l t team claimed oughout the contest that illegal c'nes were being tossed by the prison.

Pawtucket Coach Named by Brown PROVIDENCE, R, I., June 17 (AP) --Brown university today appointed two new assistant football coaches. Alex Nahigian of Pawtucket, B. I., former Holy Cross athlete and a Pawtucket high school coach, was named junior varsity coach, replacing Joe McMullen who went to the University of Toledo as line coach. Lou Regine of Providence, 1947 Brown football captain, was named assistant freshman coach in place of Ernie Savignano who will devote full time to his job as assistant athletic director. Nahigian, a product of Medford, Mass., high school and St. John's Prep (Danverii, Mass,) entered Holy Cross In 1938. He played left halfback until injured in his sophomore year. He also was a ball player, captaining the Crusaders in 1942. He went to Pawtucket West high in 1942 as assistant coach and went to Pawtucket East as head football and baseball coach and physical education instructor in 1944.

Frances Badger Medalist In Women's Tournament Team 1 Virtually Clinches Twilight League Golf Title Par became just another low figure last night as members of the Portsmouth Country club's Twilight league toyed with low digits in their weekly session over the local course. Capt. Art Butler paced his Team 1 to the first half championship- well, virtually anyway--with a neat 31 on the lower nine. However, Art had plenty of company last night Capt. Bob Malone whacked a 31 and Bart O'Leary followed suit. On the upper nine, the low place men had their night. Jack Hassett, Jr., of Team 1 shot a 39 on the upper nine and he had an eight on one hole. Jack is No. H man on his team. Following in the line of low scores was Lonnie Parks who came in with a 38 on the upper nine. Lonnie is No. 10 man on Bob Malone's Team 10. The victory for Butler's team gave it 91 points which is 13 better than the second place team of Capt. Bart O'Leary. The first half ends next week so it would take a complete collapse of the Team 1 to give anyone else a shoo-in. The standing: R. S. Marges'n 0-0 C. Prlcchord 1-3 R. C. Greer 0 IF. Brooks 1 R.
