Felipe Torres. 135. Los Angeles, taocked out Lovell Franklin, Oakland, 6. By MICHAEL A. LUTZ Associated Press Sports Writer The 12th man tradition at Texas A&M has extended into the coaching ranks and shifted to baseball. The current personification of the original 12th man who came out of the stands to help the Aggie football team is Terry Logan, who until last Monday had been a 22-year-old coach of the Texas A&M junior varsity. But unlike the original 12th man. who never actually got into the game. Logan was thrust .into the middle of a crucial Southwest Conference baseball race last week. When A&M head Coach Tom Chandler was forced to the sidelines by a ruptured disc, Logan moved in as acting head coach until Chandler returns. It appeared the move couldnt have come at a worse time. The Aggies were facing a crucial SWC 3-game series with Texas Tech, which could take the lead from the Aggies by sweeping the series. But under Logan, the Aggies took a non-conference doubleheader from the University of Houston and then swept the series with Tech to remain firmly in the driver's seat in the SWC and they certainly didn't hurt their No. 4 ranking nationally by Collegiate Baseball magazine. As it turned out, the Aggies won all three games to increase their season mark to 29-3 and keep the SWC standard perfect at 12-0. They face TCU in Fort Worth this weekend before their showdown with perennial champion Texas in the final three-game series. District 14-AAA West Zone features an all-city baseball game between the Del Rio Wildcats 0-2 and crosstown San Felipe Mustangs 1-1 Tuesday afternoon at 4:15 p.m. on Wildcat Field. The Herd will be the visitors and Coach Red Soto has Wayne Benson ready for mound duty with David Moncibais as the receiver. Glenn Blanks at first base, Jerry Fay at second base, Gene Flores at shortstop and Tony Lomas at third base complete the Mustangs inner defense. But, Coach Soto put a crimp into the host's scouting reports on the Herds' outfield this morning. Recent returnees from 1970 starting berths, Frank Guzman and Joe "Lefty" Garcia will make their opening lineup debuts in left and center with Leon Best in right. ' San Felipe conies to Wildcat Field with a win over Uvalde and a loss to Kerrville while host Del Rio greets the Herd with losses to Kerrville and Crystal City In zone play. Del Rio Coach Bob Denison has nominated Ceasar Sotelo to pitch Tuesday with Mario Hernandez behind the plate. Jerry Lee, who hurled the two previous league contests will play first base, Mike McDonald will be at second base, Keith Wilcox at shortstop and Gary Rodriguez at third base. The Cats' outfield will have veteran Rob Henderson in right, either Fred Stevehfc or George Flynn in left and either Bobby Rosas or Felix Garcia In center. Tuesday afternoon's contest, billed as a pitcher's duel also has the aspects of a long-ball contest between Herd hurler Benson and Wildcat first baseman Lee. Gene Flores, Mustang shortstop and Sotelo, Cat starting hurler, also add to the hard-hitting possibility. Elsewhere in the West Zone Kerrville. league leader with a 3-0 tab faces 1-1 Uvalde hi the Hill Country as Crystal City remains idle Tuesday.
