The i945 edition of the Lebanon High baseball team is one of the best that has
been seen around here in recent years, At the time of this writing, although the War-
riors still have five scheduled games to play, the team is undefeated, having won seven
A highlight of the season has been the superlative pitching of veteran Don Ellis,
and Joe Elkins, ace Junior chucker. ln the seven games played thus far this SGGSOH,
these two boys have permitted the opposing teams to gather only l6 hits. ln one game
against Junction City, which the locals won l7-O, Don and .loe combined their pitching
efforts and hurled a no-hit, no-run game, an achievement rarely accomplished in base-
ball. A total of 85 opposing batters have gone down swinging at the curves and fast
balls of Lebanon's two pitchers and this mark should go well over lOO before the com'
pletion of the season. Both boys are also heavy hitters and lead the Warriors in this
department of the game, Although Lebanon's pitchers have done an excellent iob on
the mound, they have received wonderful support from their teammates both in the
field and at bat. The snappy, vociferous infield has more than once helped the pitchers

In the line, George Fowler, a mere lad of 235 pounds, held down the center po-
sition in great style and with the improvement he showed this year, he should prove to
be an outstanding lineman next year.
The guard spots were filled by Art Cobb and Denny Marvin two boys who made
the center of the Lebanon line as formidable as a stone wall. Art was after the fifth
man in the opponents' backfield and if they got by Art, they were met by Denny who
backed up the right side of the line and tackled for keeps.
Tony Solberg and Paul McCracken held down the tackle positions and they were
two of the best tackles in the league. Tony was playing his second year at tackle and
very little yardage was made through his side of the line. Paul was playing his first
year at tackle but he learned quickly and always made it tough for his opponents.
The end positions were filled by Lynn Hamilton and Kenny Haughton. Both of these
boys were tops, Lynn for his great defensive work and pass snaring ability and Kenny
for his wonderful blocking and ability to clear the way for the backs to follow him.
These two boys will be back again next year to heckle opposing teams.
The reserves came in for a great deal of attention too, and without them the suc-
cess of the team would not have been so great. The following boys, besides the ones
named above, earned the Lebanon "L", Don Brown, quarterback, Joe Elkins, halfback,
Ron Cox, halfback, Don Ellis, fullback, Gay Baldwin, center, Bud Goold and Denny
Canny, guards, Ross McCormick and Larry Christian, tackles, Stan Worland and Dick
Hobbs, ends. Honorary letters were awarded to Dick Clarke, Richard Michelson and
Ced Wallace who suffered iniuries during the season and were unable to play. Man-
ager's awards were given to Doug Smith and Bob Johnson.
The scores of the games for the lf?-44 season were as follows,
Lebanon 7 - Toledo 0 Lebanon 27 - Junction City O
Lebanon 13 - Springfield 6 Lebanon 12 - Albany O
Lebanon 21 - Sweet Home 13 Lebanon T3 - University High O

out of bad situations and their errorless playing has been largely responsible for the
victories registered so far.
The veteran Art Cobb, behind the plate, has proven himself to be one of the best
catchers in this district and his skill in handling the pitchers has been an important factor
in the team's winning ways. -
On first base, tall Lynn Hamilton is working like an old timer although this is his
first year at the initial sack. His errorless playing afield and good hitting at bat marks
him as a player who will bear watching in the future.
Ced Wallace, the talkative second baseman, is one of the most improved players
on the team and his leadership in the infield keeps the boys constantly playing heads-up
The third base duties are shared by two boys. Joe Elkins handles the hot corner
while not on the mound, and when Joe makes a throw to first after scooping up a hot
grounder, it always gets to Lynn's mitt with plenty. of gusto. The other boy playing
third is Willis Moody, a transfer from Newport. Willis is coming along nicely and has
shown himself to be a capable replacement when Elkins takes the mound.
At short-stop, red-headed Jess Ingram struts his stuff and there is not a faster in-
fielder in this district. Jess covers lots of ground from his position and has robbed many
teams of sure hits because of this speed. '
ln the outfield, sophomore Paul Alley holds down the left field garden spot and
due to his promising playing this year both in the field and at bat, he is labeled as a
boy to watch in the next two years.
The center field spot is patrolled by Ray Ayers, a fast fielding, hard-hitting senior
letterman. Ray has one of the strongest throwing arms seen on any fielder this year
and very few teams try to get extra bases when Ray has the ball.
The right field iob is handled by three boys-Don Ellis, Tony Solberg, and Dick
Hewett. Because of his power at bat, Don plays in right field when not pitching, but
when he is on the mound, the right field iob is capably take care of by Tony and Joe.
Both are equal in playing ability and although this is the first year of varsity baseball
for both boys, they are doing a swell iob. A
Other boys who have seen action but are not necessarily starters as yet are Denny
Canny, reserve catcher and outfielder, Ron Cox, reserve outfielder, Don Brown, reserve
outfielder, and Elmer Fields, reserve infielder.
The Lebanon Warriors rank as one of the leading teams in the state and at the
present time are on top in district play and should they finish the seasorf in this po-
sition it will be the third district championship annexed by Coach Bud Page's boys this
