Blue Streaks Worked 'Overtime^ For First Cage Victory, 63 - 56 ^ By JOHN MALCOLM RS-N Sports Editor f Sandusky- Higlrs baskelballers wore batting .250 for ;the season as they went back to work today getting ready for Wednesday night's Buckeye Conference battle! at Lorain. With that elusive first victory tucked away Saturday night at the expense'of Norwalk. 63-56 in overtime, the Blue vStreaks are taking a much brighter outlook at the task ahead. iS flEOtSTCR-STAR-NEWS Bundniik]', O., Mton., Dee. 19, t95S Basketball Scores HIGH SCHOOL Sandusky 63.

In the final period. Sandu.sky either "rallied" from .a lO-point deficit to win, or Nonwilk "blew" a 10-point lead . . . it's all according where you're from. The Register-Star-News sells a lot of paper in Nonvalk. • • * • TO GET closer to the facts, it was probably the Streaks' burning desire for a win that .simply swept Nonvalk off \\s feet in the final minutes. So elated were the boys with the victory that Huron Tigers Shade Berlin Heiglits By 3 The fur always flies when a couple of Tigers battle, and Saturday night was no exception when Berlin Heights and Huron collided . . . Leading by their final three-point margin most of the way, the Huron brand proved a little too strong for the host Berlin breed, 69-66. Berlin led twice in the opening frame, but Huron rallied tor an 18-14 advantage at the first quarter mark and were never headed. • • * THE TIGHT battle saw both •ides rack up 20-point second quarter scores, Huron enjoyed a 16-13 third period advantage and Berlin fight back for a 17-15 edge that wasn't quite enough in the final session. Jack Armstrong had 17 to lead the winners, with Jim Hartley next with 14. Scoring honors for the game went to Berlin center Dean Kraus, who used five fielders and 13 field goals to ring up 23 points. Dewey Acord followed Ex-Ranger Captain Finds Minors Easy By UNITED PRESS Don (Bones) Raleigh, fomier captain of the New York Rangers, played the first minor league game of his life Sunday night — but he won't be playing many more if he keeps up the pace he set. ^Dropped by the Rangers in Piiil Watson's drastic shakeup last Saturday, the 29-year-old Raleigh, who joined the Rangers In 1943 direct from amateur hockey, scored two goals and received credit, for two assists in the Providence Reds' 12-5 victory over the Springfield Indians. Buffalo defeated last-place Hershey, 4-2, in the other game Sunday night.

For much of the way. the visitors had countered every move by SHS. Dick l)eHaven. Tom Reitz and BlJly Whisner were the big men in the final quarter, all scoring six points as the Streaks piled up a 22-12 edge to send the game into overtime, DeHaven dropped In two straight foul tosses and Whisner an almost impos.s4ble drive-in shot to finally take the lead at 55-54 near the 2-niinute mark for the first time in the game. Norwalk's John Schaechterle lied the count with a foul toss with 90 seconds left but missed a chance to put the Truckers out front on his second try. Sandusky missed a chance to win when Doug Biechele missed a free throw try with 13 seconds left, and the Norwalk foul toss that was wiped out when the shooter had his toe over the line looked mighty good at that point. * • * THE THREE minute overtime session was all Sandusky, enjoying an 8-1 point advantage. Jeff Johnson went steaming in for a two-pointer just at the extra period opened, and as it turned out, was enough. Forest Middaugh made one of two foul tosses to narrow the spread to a single point for the Truckers, but that was all for the Wallsmen. DeHaven and Reitz put through foul tosses. Johnson added another bucket and DeHaven dropped in two more free throws at the end for a little icing. (Continued on Page 17.) Canton Timken 83, Wnshington C.

Al Kaline Youngest Batting Carmint Fior* h Champ In History Of Majors^^'^ CPIICAGO, Dec. 19 (UP) - Al Kaline celebrates his 21st birthday today as the youngest batting champion n major league history. And, on the day he officially becomes a nian, the Detroit 'I'i- gers' 35,000 bonus beauty might well ponder the paths taken by the two previous "boy wonder" hampions. One went on to glory, the other to heart-break. Official figures released by the Howe News Bureau di.sclosed that Kaline won the batting title this ear with a .340 average and also topped the circuit with 200 1 hits and .321 total bases. Ted Williams, the Bo.ston Red Sox' great slugger, hit .356 but his 320 official times at bat were 80 .short of the required minimum for consideration as league champion. UNTIL KALINE came along, the great Ty Cobb was tlie oungest player ever to win a atting title. The Georgia Peach was in hi.s 20th year when he won his crown in 1907—but was one day older than Kaline. Cobb was born on Dec. 18, 1886; Kaline on Dec. 19, 1934. Cobb, of cour.se, went on to win 12 A. L. titles and baseball immortality. I'elc Reiser of the Brooklyn Dodgers, die other "boy uonder" champion, went on to heartbreak, however, after win- nifig the National League crown in ISMl al the ago of 22. The following sca.son He encountered a .siring of injuries that eventually ruined what promised to be one of the greatest of all careers. Vic Power ot the Kansas City Athletics finished second to Kaline with .319, followed by George Kell and Nel.son Fo.x of the Chicago While Sox with .312 and .311 respectively. Only four other players hit .300 or more. Castellani Fights Fullmer At Arena CLEVELAND. O..
