Inning Play
By Bob Keefer
East Cleveland Little Leagues,
Inc. will hold its second meeting
of the 1959 season tonight at
7:30 p. m. in the commission
chamber, City Hall. All manag
ing personnel of the ECLLI are
urged to attend the meeting to
take part in the discussion of
several important matters.
It is especially important that
all Little League managers and
coaches be in attendance to vote
on a proposal which was intro
duced at the last meeting. It was
suggested that a rule be adopted
whereby every player on a Lit
tle League team be required to
play in at least two innings of
every game. A definite decision
on that motion will be made at
tonight’s meeting.
Since the Shaw Stadium play
ing field will be re-sodded this
summer, it has been suggested
that the annual Amateur Day
program, usually held in August,
be moved up to a June date
pending the approval of the
Board of Education.
During the last meeting, the
election of officers for the 1959
season was held with the follow
ing results: President, H. S.
Weaver Vice-President, Bob
Keefer Secretary, Ken Reiber
Treasurer, Murle B. Cowles
Commissioner, Roy H. Wisecup.
This is the seventh consecutive
year in which “Buck” Weaver
has served as the EUCCI presi
dent and his guiding influence
has been a major factor in the
increasing popularity of the Lit

locally established in 1953.

The local courts decision was re

The case was also refused re

The Addams three-page letter
challenged the integrity of the
court and alleged that “the ab

makes this court a very conveni

In his replay, Judge Silbert
critized Addams. stating he was
“amazed” at this “highly in

Addams.
