KIPPERS EDGE VETS 10-7
The Kippers racked up their second straight win Tuesday afternoon to regain
undisputed possession of first place in the Campus Softball League.
A pre-game rhubarb, between manager "Daddy" Eclovich, of the Kippers,
and Tony "Tiger" Tyrone, the Vet's mentor, put plenty of extra steam into the
efforts of both clubs. Because of the failure of the Vets' full club to. appear,
Big Bill Burcin was forced to take the mound with but seven men behind him.
In spite of the handicap, however, the undermanned Vets leveled off on Cal
Shipman's pitches and blasted five runs to pull ahead in the first inning.
Successive singles by Tony Tarono, Johnny Alampi, and Danny Postuoak followed,
by a base error to Marv Edolstein and two booming doubles by Clmt J?rank and
"Vicious" Vic Pituch put Shipman down that long road.
Shipman settled dwon after that disastrous first inning and held the Vets
to 2 runs on four hits the rest of the way.
The Kippers started the climb up by pushing a run across m the bottom oi
the second on Shipman's double and Andy Kaminski's timely single. Burcin
put the stopper on this rally with his strong pitching and some classy fielding.
