OUT AT HOME PLATE
3 -2 , 1+-
HARRY WIDUER DOB DEANY
To start the 1948 baseball season the Strawn Redblrds took tP61
flrst opponent Cronsey by a 6 to 4 count The score was 6 o
durlng the f1rst few 1nn1ngs of play, but the Bulldogs galned 3
runs after a serles of Strawn errors Both of the Widmer boys,
Hank and Lloyd, succeeded 1n punchlng trlples to dr1ve 1n 4 of the
Red and Whlte runs Then a serles of slngles and doubles drove ln
the rest of the runs.
After getting a taste of the wlnners blood the Strawn Red and
White and the Roberts Bobcats, battled a n1p tuck game on the home
team dlamond After 6 1nn1ngs of play, 1n whlch the 1nf1elders
and 0Utf161d6FS held down the fly balls and ground drlves, a tough
Bobcat punched a neat single to dr1ve 1n the w1nn1ng run The
flnal score was 5 to 4
The Cooksville game of September lO was a game to remember for all
the members of the hone squad, for on that day Rog Benway p1tched
h1s f1rst shut out of the 1948 fall season All the boys on the
team d1d very neat work and batted to the best of the1r ab1l1ty
to win an easy 71CtOTy by a 10 to O score Although one COOkSV11l9
player threatened to score the team kept thelr heads and put h1m
Agalnst Melv1n, an old rival of Strawn the Redblrds pounced on the
Dutler squad to g1ve h1m a 7 to 4 setback The locals thlnk more
of beatlng Coach Henry Dutler than beatlng hls team because when
the golng gets tough for M61VlH Dutler manages to glve the crowd
a good show After a hard h1t homer by Homer M1k6WOFth, the M6lV1H
catcher, no M61V1H player threatened to score
For the fifth game after the Red and whlt6 had won three out of
four games another old rlval came to meet the Strawn squad The
Birdios however had a
Buckley n1ne by a 3 to
pltcher proved too much
The Sibley game on Sept
Slblev boys d1dn't glve
way got 15 strlke outs
bad day and were set back by the mlghty
1 score Buckley's hard hltters and f1H6
for the small local squad
21 was another vlctory for Strawn The
much OpUOS1t1OH to the Birdles Roger Ben
agalnst the Slbley team Donald Hartman
came through w1th the most h1ts of the day 3 out of 3 tlmes at
bat. At the end of the 7th innlng the score was 9 to l

The of xn m8Ch1WG just couldn't cope w1th the Roberts f1V6 on the

wlth a s o of 35 to 53 The Redblrd became over HDXIOUS at the
la t and over guarded g1v1ng the Robert team flve free throws for
the1r v ctory
On January 4 the Strawn seconds knocked over a tough Cullom quantet
by a 53 30 score to start the New Year out rlght The Cullom
squad led all the wav through to the last stanza, but thenlnke
Metz and Bob Deany chucked 1n two qulck ones to put the game on
1ce for the baby Redb1rds
On January 7 a :oak S1bley f1ve lnvaded the locals court only to
be stooped by a 35 10 score The a1r above the baskets was full
of basket balls but few of them dropped through the nets Harry
Widmer played h1s f1rst reserve game of the season and added 1
f1elder to the score Hls younger brother, Lloyd popped 1n 4
buckets and 4 free tosses for 12 PO1ntS An unusual factor 1n
the game was that S1bley got l polnt 1n the flPSt quarter, 2 uxthe
second, 3 1n the th1rd and four polnts in the last quarter.
Buckley B squad vs. the Redb1rd B squad proved too muoh for the
Redblrds. The game, played 1n Strawn's gym,was in Buokley's favor
from the start. Scoring was easy for the Dutchmaster's and the
stone wall Wh1Ch Strawn displayed 1n former games now had disapb
peared. All that the Rodblrds could put 1rxwere 4 f1eld goals and
6 free tosses. The game ended 1n favor of Buckley 47-14. Th sgama
which was played Jan ll, was much more one-sided than the flrst
one on November 12.

UU THE PLQHIUE HELUS -
The Strawn grade softball season was a one-sided affair due to
the diminuitive size of the Bluebird players. To start the sea-
son the Thawville Titans came to the home diamond September 9 and
smothered the Strawn half-pints 27 to 8. On September 16 the
Chatsworth giants overpowered them by the very decisive score of
23 to 12. The third venture against over-size opponents was at
Thawville on September 23 The first two innings found thelocals
ahead but some errors in the field and weak batting left them be-
hind at the end A desperate rally and a three bagger by Butch
Kuntz almost knotted the score Thawville then staged another
attack and the game ended 21 to 7 for them. On September 27, the
Bluebirds found themselves well matched as far as size was con
eerned against the Chatsworth fifth and sixth graders This on
they brought home by a score of 17 to 3 Three days later they
squared away against the Sibley Giants For an inning things
looked good but the Strawn midgets get faint hearted again and
they were snowed under 21 to 15 On October 5 the Bluebirds
crossed bats with the huge Cropsey team and met defeat again,
19 to 9 Cropsey repeated again October 8 on the Strawn diamond
by another lop sided victory of 19 to 12 Thus another season
ended with six losses and one victory
DDU THE BQSKUBQLL EUURT
On the basketball floor the grade boys compiled a muchbetter
record, ending the season with lO victories and 9 defeats Coach
Hagerman's guidance paid dividends and it became increasingly
evident as the season progressed that these lightweights were g
ing to make good
Outstanding among the players was Glen Davis, high scorer and
capable leader of the team, whose 203 points and fine defen
S1VB work were an inspiration to the whole team Another player
who made good in spite of small size was Lowell Lattig who scored
115 points for second scoring honors The other regulars were
Billy Skinner, Bob Rinkenberger and Richard Deany They were
very ably assisted by Kenneth and George Kuntz John Hornickle,
William and Bengamin Metz Ronald Steidinger, Tommy Aaron Donald
Metz Kent Lattig, and Maurice Koehl
If the boys were asked to pick out a single game as the most ex
citing and thrilling of the season, there is little doubt that
they would be agreed that the return game wlth Chatsworth answered
that description A final score of 26 to 25 tells the story
of a nip and tuck game In all these games the three expertcheen-
leaders Joan Marlin, Mary Walters, and Carol Elliott di an
inspired Job of working up enthusiasm and deserve the oommendation
of players, classmates and spectators
