STONE-PICKING BEE: Hopeful their efforts would lead to better playing conditions for 1960, many members of the 13-Year League gathered at the new 75-foot diamond at Veterans Park yesterday for a stone-picking bee designed to get the top layer of pebbles off a field which has promise but needs considerable careful attention. There was some talk, too, of trying to pick up the third-base corner of the father-tilted diamond which isn't exactly square to the world. Other players discussed the possibility of uprooting the brand-new backstop, which now stands less than 15 feet from home plate, and replanting it far enough back to serve its purpose and yet allow catchers and umpires room to maneuver. Whether or not the other things receive attention, those on hand made sure there will be a few thousand fewer stones to worry about until the next crop works its way to the surface.

A batter in the 9-Year League doesn't have to be able to hit a breaking pitch to stay in the lineup. Young fellows like Paul Starr of the Dixboro Dragons swing at a baseball teed up by catcher Andy Logan of the Buckeyes

A player has to be alert on the field as Stone Buckeye third baseman Paul Graham proves in covering the bag as Brian Kerr of the Dixboro Dragons races down the base-path. It just goes to prove that an infielder has to be ready for anything, a pop up, line drive or a throw to the bag.

Just because the players are a little on the young side doesn't mean that they can't play a good game of baseball. Benton Thomas, a second baseman for the Mitchell Roadrunners, is ready for any situation that might come up in the infield. In his crouched position, he can move either to his left or right with equal ease. His coach is pretty high on his future potential in baseball.
