8A-DEL RIO (TEXAS) NEWS-HERALD, Sunday, AprillS, 1971 Tivy Trips San Felipe Mustangs Saturday, 2-0 STQP IN OR CALL WARDS AUTOMOTIVE CENTER! AVE. F at 12th St. 775-2458 OPEN 9:00 A.M. To 5:30 P.M. KERRVILLE-The Kerrville Tivy Antlers, aided by four San Felipe errors and Joe Lara s 2-hit hurling, defeated the Mustangs 2-0 in Kiwanis Park here Saturday afternoon. The win gives the Antlers sole possession of the District 14-AAA West Zone lead with a 3-0 won and lost tab and drops San Felipe to 1-1 and a second place tie with the idle Uvalde Coyotes. Tivy's initial run came in the second inning when Jack Michel, Antler first baseman, reached second base safely on Herd outfielder Pete Hernandez' miscue. On an attempted steal of third base Michel went all the way home when Mustang catcher David Moncibais' throw went out into left field? Mustang pitcher Waldy Felan and Tivy twirler Lara hooked up in scoreless duels from the second inning on until the hosts played its second run. Jeff Waliky singled and stole second base and rode home on Michel's single. San Felipe squandered away its golden opportunityin the sixth inning. Coach Red Soto said, "We had runners on first and third and no one out. We gave Wayne Benson, who was on first base the steal sign and had Moncibais who was on third base ready to dash to the plate if the Kerrville catcher made the throw to second. We were shocked to see our batter Gene Flores swing at the pitch as Benson dashed toward second base. Flores popped to the Tivy infield and Benson was doubled trying to leg it back to first base." Moncibais made it back safely to third base but was stranded there when Tivy hurler Lara took care of the next Herd hitter. For the game, Kerrville posted two runs on three hits and committed one bobbie while San Felipe was shutout on two hits and was guilty of four errors. The Kerrville victory leaves the Antlers on top of the Western and sets the stage for Uvalde's visit to the Hill Country on Tuesday. Uvalde, now tied with San Felipe, was idle this weekend. The Mustangs take their 1-1 record across town Tuesday to face 0-2 Del Rio while Crystal City 1-2 will rest i. .' Kerrville, like the Houston Astros, are in the midst of the "narrows" but unlike the major leaguers have turned a pair of one-run results and a two-run margin into three victories against no defeats. Antler ace Lara now owns victories over both border city- schools, having posted a 5-4 win over Del Rio's Wildcats on April 6. Tivy's other victory came on a 4-3 nod over the Crystal City Javelins who defeated Del Rio 5-2 Friday night in Javelin Park.

I had my sayso on the draggy format of taking three hours to produce seven innings. Denison mentioned that when he attended the national baseball clinic early this year that the speed-up question was one facet of the program. All sorts of ideas were expressed including one by a coach who has his infieldefs toss the ball to one player and then to the pitcher after an infield out. Other ideas to take the drag out of the contest was to have the pitcher use the ball that is given to him by the umpire-in-chief instead of waiting until the ball boys retrieve fouls that travel all over the park or even those that go out of the park behind the plate. Another time-saver is to have the 1st base coach ready with the pitcher's warmup jacket while said chunker is batting. Almost every high school game has to lag until someone locates the pitcher's jacket and finally gets it down to him. It will be interesting to see if the upcoming contests are taking advantage of the speed-up ideas, thus adding more action and attraction to high school baseball, long a sufferer from the lags. 5 To 8 From 5 a.m. 'til 8 a.m. this yawning a special smoke patrol from the Amistad Bass Club is biding Bon Voyage to all members angling in the S&S One-Plug bass tourney. The smokers are helping the contestants "remember" an odd plug or two that may have got mislaid in one of the corners of some "foreign" lure show up on deck. The[ format for today's One-Plug classic is just what it says — one plug. To make matters more uniform Stewart and Stevenson picked out the One pattern lure and stipulated that it had to be the color they were providing (two plugs per contestant). However, it was added that a feller could fish the Wounded Flash top or under, if he liked, One Way The more I puzzled over the best method of fishing the One-Plug classic the less clear the answer became. Boy, to think of tossing that topwater lure 10 hours without any real confidence of getting any hits, is a weary thought. To prep for the big tourney I made several late evening runs out to Big Friendly and all I got back for my surface scratching was white bass belts. ^ So I'm fixin' to hang me a small keel sinker about two feet in front of the lure and try the surface bait as an underwater lure. The Wounded Flash is so big it might represent a motorized submarine attacking a bass nest and run 'em out on the bank where you could pick 'em up like wildflowers. Hecki I might, even rig up a tandem of two lures and grapple for brother bass hoping to foul-hook one. Might do okay or even better if I come up with some of those empty souse cans tossed in Amistad by careless ones. Look Out Russia Well, not right away, that is. But Russian runners of the future — the female kind — had better look to their laurels. Had a quick chat with Comstock High School superintendent-girls basketball and volleyball coach, R.W. Milligan Saturday morning. I was delighted to know that he's entertaining thoughts of opening a track and field program for Pantherettes in 1972. I hope his entertaining thought blossoms into a full-blown bit for Comstock girls who'll give it the old college try just like they do for any other Pantherette sport. I'd like to see some more of our area schools give the gals a break and come up with fully-organized and well-coached track and field programs. If oodles of athletically-built young high schoolers put in hours of long routines for organizations like the dance and drill teams there should be little problems enticing such active youngsters to such a rewarding sport as track and field. Who knows but what a Comstock, Brackettville, Del Rio or San Felipe gal graduate may be running for the United States in future Olympics? That's 30. 6.OO-13 TUBELESS BLK. PLUS 1.60 F.E.T.
