Local Teams In District THE NEWS, Frederick, Marytend s. urn PfefeB-1 Tboma* Johnson coach -Joe Poke doesn't know what to expect while BruDswlck mentor Delphy Gaitoer IB optimistic about the results of their first round district btsebsll play-offs today. The Patriots haven't played since May 18 and Polce feels that this is going to hurt their chancce of winning. Polce commented, "it's like playing the first game of the season and I don't know if we're ready or not" Thomas Johnson will meet South Hagerstown beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the Municipal Stadium in Hagerstown. The Rebels topped TJ twice during regular season play. In the firstgamethe Patriots committed 11 errors and in the second contest TJ walked the winning run across. According to Polce, "Joe Hollar, South High's best pitcher, is ineligible to pitch because he played American Legion ball and they will throw Evans against us. Evans beat us the second game and he'll be rough." Polce also said, "South has a lot of good hitters who hit the ball everytime, and they have three or four boys who can really stfne it" Brunswick hasn't had the lay off and Gaither expresses optimism. Gainer feels, "we won't be flat like we were yesterday." Gatther was referring to theB-C play-off with Catocttri which Brunswick won, 3-0. Gaither will start Mitch Oeen- er on the mound against Williamsport Gaither said, "Deener is capable of beating anybody and is not far behind Rick Dawson as far as pitching is concerned." Oawson fired a one^ hitter against Catoctin. The Railroader coach says, "Deener has to pitch one game or the other and Dawson will be able to pitch the final game on Saturday if we win against Williamsport" Williamsport has a 12-5 record and whipped Boonsboro to reach the district play-offs. Brunswick will start its regular line - up except for possibly, Dave McLane. McLane cut his hand and whether or not he can play will be decided before the game which is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. in Hagerstown's Municipal Stadium.
