'Wy»Jt 8-Al0dna (la.) Upper Des Moines Thursday, March 24, 1955 Believe It Or Not - First Baseball Game In 3 Weeks "Play Ball." A quick look out the window tells us it's impossible, but, sure as shootin', baseball season is here again. The major,' and some of the minor leaguers, are working out in warmer climes, but undaunted Bob King, coach of the Algona High School Bulldogs, .with the first game only three weeks away, doesn'.t let the weather bother him a bit. Workouts began Monday In the local gym, and will be held there daily until the squad of 21 hopefuls can get out on the grass. Six lettermen are back from last year's team which racked up 6-2 won-lost mark. They are —" Fain, Doug Meyer, Bob Harms, Loren Nelson and Don Cook. Christensen, Fain and Cook are seniors, the other three juniors. Christensen and Fain will probably handle most of the pitching for' the club. Both are right- handers and are experienced on the mound. Christensen has three years of high school and two years of Legion play behind him. Both can throw hard, but have been wild at times, so will get plenty of work on their control, acr- cording to King. Meyer, backstop for the past two years, will call the shots from that'spot again. His long-ball hitting, which has brought disaster to many teams, will be need- KOSSUTH COUNTY Ledyard Cage team Sees State Meet Ledyard — On Friday Floyd Temple, B. K.

Vis probable Harms will be at second, while Nelson is exper- enced at third and shortstop, look, a fixture in' center field for a long time, will probably be there again flagging down everything hit his way, and getting his share of base hits. From here on, the picture fades, and King's search for men to replace Dave Devine, Jim Galbraith and Darrell Simmons will not be an easy one. Devine held down the shortstop post, Galbraith first base, and Simmons was an outfielder, and at present those are the three positions open on the starting nine. Dave Kohl and Harvey Peglow, a pair of sophomores, will get a try as hurlers, although neither has any real game experience. Other men trying to help t*ke up the slack include Bob Siobe, Ted Finley and Duane Kiieck, sophomores; Gene 'Helmers, Bob Jensen, Larry Kueck and Vernon Christoffers, juniors; and Dave Richardson, Howie Funk. Larry Hutzell, Jerry Rupp and Jerry Lewis, freshmen. Eulah Schuller, who has seen limited duty, is the only other senior on the squad. It is probable the team will get in some bunting practice along with plenty of throwing, before moving outside. Would you rather sit behinc the plate, or along the first base line?
