On the following weekend they will be at the Soangetaha Country Club Saturday and return to the city course for the windup on Sunday. Defending champion J i m Wetherbee and several former winners will be in the starting lipid Saturday.

Big Inning Boosts Legion To 7-1 Victory Over Canton One big inning was all it took for Galesburg American Legion Post 285 to notch its 23rd win of the season against a skeleton Canton team Wednesday night. The Galesburg Legionnaires scored all their runs in the bottom of the fourth inning enroute to a 7-1 victory. Canton, which brought only nine players because of conflict with tournament play, had scored once in the top of the frame. The win raised the Legion's season won-loss record to 23-9. Post 285 will have a chance to improve on that mark this weekend with at least three gemes on tap.

Chambers St, Phon. 343-41741 Pontiac on Sunday has been canceled, but an opponent is be ing sought to fill the date. The Legionnaires picked up the victory because they "took advantage of the breaks" explained coach Fred Stevens af ttr the game. A majority of the breaks came in the fourth inning with three errors, four walks and three hits resulting in £he runs. "Sometimes you get the big inning when you need it, and sometimes you don't," remarked Stevens. "We usually get two or three runs an inning; we've got a lot of power and speed." Forry Franckey was the winning pitcher as he was credited with his third victory against two defeats. Franckey went six innings before being relieved by Kirk'King and gave up only two hits. He walked four batters, struck out nine and allowed only one unearned run. Canton got the single score when Franckey threw a wild pitch that brought Tony Svob home from third base. Rick Loy had to go the distance for Canton without benefit of relief, and except for the disastrous fourth inning held Galesburg scoreless. Loy walked seven, struck out seven and was tapped for only two seven runs. He walked in two of the runs in the fourth. Ron Nelson, Mark Thiei, Jer ry Blixt and Robbie Johnson each got a single base hit for the Legion. All hits but Johnson's came in the fourth inning, and Thiel's effort was a double.

Gridiron Stepping Sport Stone For Szczecinski By TOM MARVELtl (Staff Writer) 1 The brawniness in Bob Szczecinski's body gives him away. He used his football talent as a stepping stone to a baseball career. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Galesburg Pioneer went to high school at LaGrange Lyons and then received a football scholarship to the University of Arizona at Tucson, Ariz. He started at safety on the freshman squad and this past fall saw action at the sains position on tire rugged Western Athletic Conference (WAC) school's varsity team. In a conference that has known the likes of J. D. Hill, Travis Williams and Jim Kiick in football, the average sports fan can understand why "Ski" is built the way he is. "When I first went out there I wanted to play baseball. It's my favorite sport. I knew that as a freshman I'd have to play spring football and wouldn't be able to play baseball at all. But after I made.it on the varsity football team I knew I could try baseball in the spring. "It was kind of a chance, but it turned out all right. Now I'm just playing baseball so I'll be able to practice in the fall." The Pioneer third baseman tried to break in at the same position at Arizona and ended up sharing the spot with a sen ior. But it isn't exactly a slap in the face for a sophomore to share a position with a senior who ends up his college career by signing a professional con tract. The Arizona coach was so impressed by his new-found blond- headed third' baseman that he sent Szczecinski on his way to the Central Illinois Collegiate League for the summer. At first I thought I'd be playing for the Peoria,Pacers. Jim Wing, the coach of the Pacers, is an assistant at Arizona. But there's a rule in the league that /a team can only take two players from a college team and he already had two from Arizona. But I'm really glad I came liere. The people are a lot warmer here Mian they are up in Chicago. People have had us into their homes and entertained us. Ruth Pecsi and the town of Galesburg have done a lot to make us feel at home." And Pioneer fans are glad to have Szczecinski on the team. Bob Szczecinski Ski led the league in batting through the first half of the season, blistering opposing pitchers for 32 hits in 87 official at bats for a .368 average. Included in the total is a home nin and 13 runs batted in. He also got on base 11 times in the first 24 games by walking. Galesburg got off to a bad start and Szczecinski was in no hurry to say die or pin the blame on anyone even though he was getting on base while the rest of his team wasn't. "We were all hitting the ball well. It was just that we were hitting right at someone. I was just hicky a couple of times. "We weren't getting the breaks. But I guess it's a game of taking advantage of the breaks you make and we just weren't doing it." Szczecinski slowly rubbed the palms of his hands together "This is the number one scouted league in the nation and probably the best way to make it into the pros. "What's really good about the league is that a person can learn just by watching his teammates. They all are the best players in the country and, coming from different schools and different coaches, when you put it all together, you have got the best. "That's especially an advantage for our team sinoe we're all so close. That's part of being a tough team. All the teams in the league are well matched and to finish at .500 is respectable, but I know we can do better." To Pioneer coach Jim Isaacson, Szczecinski is a fine ath- CICL Standings BECOKD MAtf , W V Pel.

Marty Reid had just one hit for the visitors but it was a solo homer to lead-off the third inning. Pioneers' Bob Szczecinski and Gary Purcell each had a pair of hits for Galesburg. PUrcell's single in the second droye in the Pioneers' only two runs. When starter Tom Steen, Iowa University, didn't have it, he left after three innings and the Pioneers wound up; using live hurlers. First baseman Gary Bradley came on to pitch in the^inth inning and set the side down in order, striking out the first!! two Pooria batters.

"On defense he's got great hands and a good arrri.'He^s one that hustles and conies up with the big play. He's one of the best third basemen in the league. Offensively, he speaks for himself. He led the ^league in batting in the first half of*the season." « * Isaacson then leanecf oack and laughed. "Old pigpen. He's always^dirty. He works and gets himself all sweated up and ends- up diving into the ground-latter balls and gets all muddy." It must be the football part of Szczecinski showing itself on the baseball diamond.
