Section 2 Pages 9*16 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Spott Amusement Comic Established January 15, 1836 ALTON, ILL., SATURDAY, JULY 23, 1960 5c Per Copy Member Of The Associated SPORTALK By DON PLARSKI Attlitint Spirit tdltir White Sox Romp Past Yanks, 11-5 Apparently aoftball, In a big way, is being revived In Altoh after a lapse of too many years. Fred Sager, owner of Sager> Drugs, Is sponsoring i a team this year In the City Softball League. But, 1 aside from that, he is also encouraging his team 1o play independent games. With the response shown by the players Sager and his team decided to give Olin playground a new face. So, they went to work. The diamond was worked on. The Infield was "manicured". The outfield was once again improved. Lights were installed. After much work the Sager's team began playing at Olin. Now, they are playing there regularly against j some of the better teams In the Alton and St. Louis area. ' To Sager and members of the team who worked so hard to bring softball back to a diamond filled with many memories of other fine teams and players, congratulations are in order. They have given the sagging sport a shot in the arm for the city and have done it on their own. However, the test is yet to come.'Beginning August 'JO Sager's will sponsor a 16-team invitational tournament featuring some of the better teams in this area. Mind you, this is the first year the team has gone all out to revive softbali on a bigger basis than just playing in the city league. By IHti ASSOCIATED PRESS American l/cagae W. L. I'ct.

Howard hit a homer in the second inning, his 15th of the season and Drysdale scored the other run himself in the 9th after hitting a double. Drysdale only allowed four hits while striking out 14 batters. It was the first shut out victory for Drysdale in I960. (AP Wire- photo) in Alton. The other two Alton-sponsored teams, the Chiefs and Jackson's, play their home games at Wood River and Roxana, respectively, because suitable playing sites were not available in Alton. Perhaps Sager's initiative to go ahead and do something about what this city lacks, will spearhead a move to return to Alton good independent teams it deserves.

The Sox, tearing up their obituary that was typed by New York writers when the Yankees swept a four-game series at Chicago in mid-June, busted back for 18 hits' and an 11-5 romp in the opener of a four-game set at Yankee Stadi- ! urn Friday night. It was the sixth straight sue- I cess for the Sox, their longest • string of the season, and 20th in 1 their last 28 games. ' Thr Yankees, now have lost 10 of their last 15. Third-place Cleveland stayed 2* a games back, losing 6-4 at Boston as Vic Wertz drove in four runs with a homer and two singles. Baltimore's fourth-place Orioles, ending their home losing string at seven, trailed by three : games after beating Detroit 2-1 with a pair of unearned runs. Kansas City netted six unearned runs in defeating Washington 9-4. i The White Sox, trailing by six I games in fourth place on July -4, simply kept rolling on a tear in (which they have knocked 70 hits .in five games.
