TROY NEWS
There's Always A Reason
by Ray Bracy
When Ray Lindsey and his team
mates conduct a baseball school,
Dutch Deister and his teammates
should attend. They could, or
rather would have the opportunity
to learn a lot. For instance, they
might learn that for a faster ball
game the first baseman should stay
on first and not visit home plate
after every pitch As the Libby
spectators so loudly proclaimed the
umpire is the one who is calling
the pitches. Also, they might learn
that it's neither good baseball nor
good sportsmanship for the catcher
to step aside in hopes that the urn
pire will be hit by the ball. In
fact, it's sometimes more danger
ous for the catcher than the uin
. , . . , ,
Libby always has had. and ap
parently always will have an ex
cuse for losing Sometimes its
damp and the shor stop has rheu
matism; sometimes the catcher has,
a sore toe but there s always a
reason. When they played at Troy
it was he umpires fault that they
lost. We realize that Libby would
be. willing to furnish all of the o -
ficials for their games, but. al
though we appreciate their gencr
, b f V ,i, , ,, . , . i
osity, we feel that that would be
,
too much of a burden for one team
and that their should
bear part of the Ipad.
As Libby has played every other
team in the league they can be sure
that no sympathy will be forth
coming from them. However, if
Libby wants to protest the game,
Troy will be glad to meet them
on a neutral field. We would really|
like to see what new excuses there
are.
Copeland Defeats Trov
by Ray Bracy
Sunday the Troy ball team and
some of their loyal fans went to
Copeland, Idaho, where they last
a wild game to the local team, 17
to 9.
Kuwahara started off the game
for Troy with a homerun in the
first inning. In the first of the 7th
Troy went into the lead by scoring
five runs, but when they took the
field Copeland took full advantage
of several Troy errors and scored
eleven times. Jack Guthrie, pitch
ing for Copeland, kept the Troy
hits well scattered and maintained
their lead.
In his first start this season as
a pitcher, Don Moore did a good
job until relieved by Ray Lindsey
in the 7th inning. Ed Mason made
his debut as a ball player when
Roger Kensler was taken out be
cause of a sore back.
Among the Troy supporters at
tending were Mr. and Mrs. Bill
Lindsey and Neil, Mr. and Mrs, Bill
Kusner, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Smith,
Clyde Thornton, Dorothy and Betty
Tallmadge. Pat Savage,
Obach, and Ray Bracy from Troy;
■'Slim" and Mrs. Lilienthal from
Moyie, and Ray Southwick from
Port Hill, Idaho.
Next Sunday Troy meets Clark
Helen
Fork here in their last league game.
How about everyone coming out
and supporting the team.
