Chicago Hubbard Wins State Baseball Title By JEFFEHY SHELER PEORIA, 111. (UPI)-A gangling lfi-year-old with bushy strawberry - blond hair and braces on his Icclh pitched Chicago Hubbard to the Illinois high school baseball championship Friday night. Although ho hardly has the looks of a hero, Phil Weinberg performed like one during a 3-0 victory by Hubbard over Belleville West in the title game. As a relief pitcher, Weinberg snuffed out a bases-loaded Belleville scoring threat in the fifth Inning, batted in one of Hubbard's three runs in the bottom of the same inning, and blanked the Maroons the rest of the way. The 175-pound side - armor finished with a flair, striking out pinch-hitter Don Barton, a 2.10-pound football tackle, with two men on base to end the game. Grateful teammates and fans swarmed the junior righthander and sports writers voted him the tournament's most valuable player. It was the first prep baseball title for Hubbard and the fiijst for a Chicago Public League champion since Chicago Schurz took the state title in 1960. A Little Nervous "I was a little nervous," Weinberg said later, "but the way my fastball was working it didn't really bother me." It was the second victory in relief for Weinberg during the two-day tournament finals at Meinen Field here. The 6-fool-2 junior, who has a 10-1 season record, also got credit for the Register-Mail SPORTS Oalesburg, HI., Saturday, June 0, 1973 Page 13 victory in a wild, 10-8, win over Galesburg in a quarter* final round game Thursday. The title match was scoreless when Belleville loaded the bases with a single and a pair of walks off Hubbard's Ray Kar* nagis in the fifth. With two outs, Weinberg strode to the mound and ended the threat by getting the next batter on a pop fly to third. It was the turning point. Losing pitcher Jim Huggins walked Mike Horn to lead off the bottom of the fifth. Steve Hensley followed with a single, and, after a sacrifice moved runners to second and third, Mike Baker singled in the first run of the game. Third basemart Phil Klimas followed with a run-producing single and Weinberg drove In the third and final run of the game with a sharp single past third. Weinberg blanked Belleville the rest of the way, giving up two hits and two walks. Both Belleville walks came in the seventh and final inning, but Weinberg responded to the threat by striking out the final two hitters. The game ended with Barton whiffing on a fastball. The victory sent some 608 Hubbard fans who camo hefe for the tourney, home to a vie* tory celebration this weekend at the school on Chicago's fat South Side. There will be another celebration Monday. On that day, eight seniors on the baseball team, who were in Peoria winning the state title while their'' classmates received diplomas Friday night, will put on caps and gowns for their own special commencement. I MOOSE TALES * by MOOSE JOHNSON We thought area fishermen would be interested in knowing what Lake Storey might have to offer for the year. We figured the most logical person to supply this Information would be Ken Russell, Illinois State Fish Biologist. After contacting Ken, he informed us the lake should certainly provide excellent fishing of most all species. A fish population census was taken this past May. Through this census it can also show the rate of growth. Ken says the bass has progressed very good, crappie population and size was excellent and bullheads were noted in% to lv& pounds. The original stock of channel cat had been whittled down. However, this spring nearly 7,000—5 to 8 inchers — were used for restocking. Channel cat do not probagate very favorably without running water. Lake Storey does not have a limit for channel cat. However, state fishing laws must be observed, such as a daily limit of 6 bass and northerns has a minimum length size of 20 inches. Ken stated that people might not catch as many fish as they did last year but they will be much bigger in size. The larger sized bass have completed their spawning but the smaller ones could continue up through the first part of June. Ken asked us to mention Gladstone Lake, a state lake south of Gladstone. It's a 27- acre lake opened in 1961 having a good camping area plus good channel cat and bluegill fishin'. . The Ranger told Ken the catalpa worms would be out in a couple of weeks. This bait is very proficient in bluegill fishing in about 9 feet of water. Wendell Albert of Sea Star Boats had a report from Lake Carlyle that the channel cat were hitting in the north end of the lake. Crickets and night crawlers seems to be the favorite bait. The cats are running from 1% to 5 pounds. This particular lake is about 40 miles long and 29,000 acres. 01' catfisherman, Ross Sornberger, and Ken Wiles journeyed to Wisconsin in quest of catfish with 55 as their total take.

Their catch included some weighing 7 or 8 pounds. The rest were all a nice size. Phil Hottest and Clyde Morris spent a couple of days fishing Fox River in Wisconsin. The twosome brought back 26 catfish. Reports indicate Phil outfished Clyde 17-0. The following is what we really enjoy writing about, when two young boys spend their time and effort fishing. Young Mark Echelberger and partner Jim 'Zefo gave Lin- coin Park a try using a dew worm. Mark tied into a nice big fat bullhead. It tipped the scale at 2 pounds. Mark told Jack Masterson, of Gale Ward's, "I never would have landed it if Jim hadn't helped me." Another young man, David Cole, brought in an 11-ounce crappie caught from a farm pond using a yellow spinner. Kenny Darnell registered a 12-ounce crappie caught from the Victoria stripmine area. Dave Guiter, using a worm for bait, caught a 15-ounce bluegill from a farm pond. We stopped in at Dom's to check on fish catches. We were told of the catfish that Jane Gardner caught, a 3% pounded We understand that just a matter of a couple of hours previous to registering her catch, she had purchased her first fishing license, and was no going out after the big 'uns. , We would like to ask our readers to turn in their fishing results or at least show their catches at one of these check points: Jim Healey's North Side Sport Shop, Dom's Sport Center, Gale Ward's, Leo Stein's, or Winkler's in Abingdon. We would even en : joy a card addressed to the Register-Mail. Busse Back HOUSTON (UPI) - The Houston Astros reacquired shortstop Ray Russe from the St. Louis Cardinals Friday. General Manager H. B.

The first-year Pioneer coach is especially pleased with the defense but is waiting to see how the hitting comes through under fire. "I'm real impressed with the defense from what I've seen so far," Isaacson said. "Our infield looks especially great. Mark Miller, shortstop from Texas El Paso, is already drawing raves from observers for his work in three drills thus far. Isaacson, who managed the American Legion for five years and won the state title in his final season, just finished his third spring as Carl Sandburg College baseball coach. He accepted the post as Pio neer coach last winter, succeed^ ing Jim Wasem, former Monmouth College coach, who dl rected the Pioneers for four years. Wasem is now coaching baseball at Northwest Missouri State. Got a SUNBURN?? Tired of the HEAT?? Like to SWIM? ? Heut the heat at the Galesburg Municipal Pool. Located off of North Semluary and Curl Sandburg Drive. Open: 1 to 5 p.m. and 6 to 10 p.m. Wecfneiday thru Sunday Adults: 70c Children: 35c Steve Achelpohl, former Pio neer and University of Nebrasr ka product, is business manager and assistant coach for the Pioneers. In addition to a strong defensive unit, Isaacson figures he will have better than average speed. "I've always liked to run, but I'll just have to wait and see how well they run the bases,'.' Isaacson said. "Of course, any running we do will depend on the situation." As is the case in baseball at any given level, pitching will be the key and at this moment, the Pioneer staff is young and a bit unpredictable. Clary Nevuiger, tlie top percentage pitcher in the CICL last year, is coming back but just how long he'll be with the Pioneers is uncertain. The Georgia University right­ hander, 7-0 last summer, was drafted in the third round by the New York Mets. However, Nevinger is to report to the bull c'ub today. ers capable of doing the job in relief," Isaacson said. If Nevinger should sign, which is a real possibility, the Pioneer boss will have to look for another strong moundsman. Some of the questions will be answered more thoroughly Tuesday when the Pioneers open the season in a home game against Macomb at H. T. Custer Park. Game time is 7:30 p.m. There will be opening game ceremonies Tuesday night and an Admiral Air Conditioner will be given away. Galesburg, a charter member, is starting its 11th season in the CICL. Other members of the (5-team league are Macomb, Peoria, Bloomington, Springfield and Chanleston-Mattoon. All night home games will be played at 11. T.
