Upper Oes Moines Tuesday, March 20, 1956 Bulldog Baseball Squad Starts Indoor Practice Coach Bob King's Algona high baseball squad got together for the first time Monday afternoon and began bunting, sliding and footwork practice in the gym. The 22-man squad will move' to the diamond at the fair.grounds as soon as the weather permits and the turf dries up a little bit.

Harvey Peglow and Dave Richardson, pitchers, and Ted Finlcy and Loren Nelson, catchers. Meyer and Nelson are seniors, Kohl. Peglow and Finley, juniors, and Richardson a sophomore. Meyer was behind the plate most of the time last spring and is one of the best high school leceivers and hitters in the area. He has had limited experience on the hill and at limes has looked fine. Kohl worked in two games last spring and had a 1-0 mark, Peplow's was reversed in the same number of appearances. Richardson is untried. Other lettermen out for another shot at baseball include Bob Slobe, junior first baseman who hit .375 last year; Bob Harms, senior second baseman who had a .207 mark; Larry Kueck. senior outfielder, Gene Helmers, senior outfielder-infielder; and Vernon Christoffers, senior outfielder who hit .333 in limited appearances last spring.

Marvin Miller, Jim Gade and Robbie Hutchins, freshmen. Gone, from last year's good team are pitchers Larry Christensen and Bill Fain and outfielders Don Cook and Eulan Schuller, the team's leading hitter. Meyer batted .423. Nelson .273 and Peglow .250 last year.
