Not Too-Bad Del Rio Wildcat baseball coach Bob Denison was naturally not elated over Wednesday's district-opening loss, 6-4, to tough Kerrville Tivy. He felt that with a few timely base hits and a heads-up situation here arid there that the Cats could have very easily won the decision. Del Rio will now be off duty as far as actual games are concerned, but they'll have plenty" of batting practice before they resume play after the Easter holidays. Their first opponent then will be Crystal City here, and we look for a little more plate power and perhaps a bit of change in the Del Rio batting order. Tivy's Joe Lara was tough as they had him touted out there on the mound. He owns a lively fast ball but used it sparingly and was content to employ his bag of junk. Jerry Lee pitched well and hit better, polling his four-master; losing the duke when it really wasn't his fault. There weren't any flagrant bobbles, but a mental lapse or two hurt the Cats' chances of opening the District 14-AAA season on a winning note.

Preston of Kingsland and Don, Mark and Mitch Meinecke of Waco. The visiting fishermen used plastic worms on upper Devil's River Arrri of Amistad Lake to make the two-day, catch. (Photo -Courtesy Rough Canyon Marina) Two Birds While Texas A&M basketball coach Shelby Matcalf is in the area he hopes to bag two deals. His prime time quarry is 6-7 Webb Williams the Comstock cagejice. Secondary, but probably just as satisfying, Coach Metcalf hopes to bag some black bass from Amistad Lake. , Steve Haynes, manager of the Panther basketball team and a durn fine high school angler, is taking Coach Metcalf to some of his and papa Mike's favorite Big Friendly haunts. Tom Taylor, former successful player and later cage coach at the Del Rio High School, will have his Diablo East Marina camera clicking for us as the Aggie mentor makes his Amistad Lake debut. Later we'll have a chance to swap a few Big Friendly angles with Coach Metcalf and we'll report his side of the tale Thursday. Even Comstock Jim Harris, the ex-Notre Dame and later Indiana high school mentor, is an avid angler so we'll have a three-way pitch. Hawks Hovering Terry Hill, former Del Rio Wildcat baseball and football operator, tells me that the Del Rio Hawks will organize early this year for the coming baseball season. In fact, he and Coach Matlock will take a look at whatever talent shows up Saturday, at 2 p.m. in Roosevelt Park. Hill and Matlock are holding the first tryout session Saturday and all area post-high school ball payers are welcome to test their diamond ability in a try to make the Hawks squad. Later when colleges turn out for the summer the Hawks will pick up a host of extra talent and the Queen City will have two clubs playing amateur ball. The Del •Rio Rams are already in action and will also bolster their squad with vacationing college players this year. Border Blast The Eagle Pass Eagles bombed out nine homeruns in belting San Antonio Edgewood 27-2 yesterday in the Alamo City. The victory eased the Eagles into a three-way tie for 32-AAAA's district lead with Memorial and Pox Tech, both San Antonio schools at 4-1. Robert Kresdorn tossed a two-hitter for the Eagles and banged two out of the park. He also gave up one homer, to Red Raider Reynolds. In winning their 4th loop tilt the Eagles hammered out 22 base hits and had scoring innings of six runs thrice, five, three and one for their 27-tally total. Few Left Mustangs Win, 7-3 D'HANIS-The San Felipe Mustangs wound up the pre-district contest with a 7-3 victory over the D'Hanis Cowboys here Tuesday night.

' Dodgers Blank Astros, 2 to 0 HOUSTON (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers managed their first victory of the 1971 National "League seasonTuesday night on thelongball hitting of new right fielder Bill Buckner. Buckner hit his first jnajor league home run in the fourth inning, scoring Willie Davis, ahead of him, as the Dodgers blanked the Houston Astros 2-0. The Dodgers managed just six hits and the Astros only four. The homer by Buckner. after Davis singled, handed Astros pitcher Don Wilson a defeat in his first start of the Infant season. Claude Osteen was the winner. That put the two clubs all even in the twp games they've played. Buckner isnt exactly a rookie this year. He made a brief appearance with the Dodgers at the start of last season but soon ! found himsell with Spokane in . thePacific Coast League, where he batted .335. That kind of performance wasnt unusual. Buckner had batted over .300 in two previous minor league campaigns, but Tuesday night's homer was out of character for the tl-year-old native of Vallejo, Calif. While slamming 157 hits during his 465 times at bat with Spokane last year, Buckner had just 33 doubles, two triples and but three homers. Buckner's hitting has drawn the praise of Washington Senates manager Ted Williams, who was also known somewhat for hitting in his playing days. After watching Buckner work out on one occasion,, Williams said the Dodgers outfielder was "a hitter who is going to lead the league some Say."
