GdlesbufQ Rcfliaf r*MPi.lf Qalesburg, III. Thursdoy, Aug. 2, 1973 ^19 Lemon Post285Hosts Division Tournament Mark Thiel By LAflAY ANDERSON (Staff Writer) "I estimate our chant** at very good." that statenwftt comes km GafeSburg American Legion Post 95 coach Fred Steven* as the locals host the Division Tournament at M. T. Custer Park this week. The division tourney opens tonight at 6 o'clock. The Legionnaires are already one-third of the way to the state title by virtue of bypassing the District Tournament at. Galva last weekend. As host for the division, Post 285 did not have to compete ait the district level. Winner of the division crown earns a berth in the state tournament at CariyJe Aug. 9-12. Legion teams from Pekan, Can* ton, Rock ftliild and Pittsfieid as well as the hosts are vying for that chance this week. J'ekin and Canton kick oft the Meam, double elimination tourney in this evenings first game. Gafesburg's first game will be m the second game Friday night* Two game* will also be played on Friday, while three are slated for Saturday. The championship is scheduled for 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon or at 6 if a ninth game is necessary. Last year Gaiesburg hosted the district tournament, and the division was piayed at Gladstone. Post 285 was eliminated from the tournament trail by a loss to Galva in the district championship. GaUesburg's chances to hur­ dle the second obstacle on the road to the state championship are good, according to coach Stevefw. "I think we're about as ready as we can get. It's Just a master of getting it together," he insists. The Legion has been getting it together pretty well all season as the locals' 24-9 won-toss record indicates. Pitching has been coming on strong, and Stevens will be sending Kirk King, 4-2, to the mound in Friday night's contest. King has an BRA of 2.33 and has struck out 31 and walked 16 batters in innings pitched. Mark Thiel has had the biggest bat for (he Legion with .395 'average and a team-leading six home runs. Jerry Blixt is next in line with .967 and five homers. Batting doesn't fall off too much with Rick Wilder at .351, Ron Nelson at .350 and Kevin Jackson at .307. Batting order will be Jackson, shortstop; Ron Nelson, third base; Thiel, catcher; Louie Vitali, center field; Wilder, left field; Blixt, right field; Mike Thompson, second; Robbie Johnson, first, and the pitcher. The Legionnaires have one thing going against them and one for them. "We haven't played a game since last Thursday. I'd like to have had another ball game or two," Stevens points out. However, they will have the home diamond edge. "Our 'kids will he in their own hometown. It has to be an advantage to us," says the Legion mentor. In the final analysis, Stevens' feels the division winner will be the team that can "get the clutch plays and breaks." Gaiesburg Post 285 is a team that can do that.
