Transcript Volume 4, No. 4. HOUSTON BASEBALL TEAM HITS THREE GAME WINNING STREAK Asiatic Station BOXING ~ ~/~ " ~ - March 1, 1941. TWO OFFICERS PARTICIPATE IN TRADITIONAL PHILIPPINE HUNT. BRING BACK DEER AND WILD BOARS The HOUSTON baseball team play­ed three games last week, emerging victor each time. The first game was played on Feb. 20 with NICHOLS FIELD. The game was featured by a four run scoring spree by our team in the first inning, which included timely doubles by Ste­fanek and Mullins. Wiseup was the master of the NICHOLS FIELD bat­ters, keeping nine hits well scattered while retiring eight men by the strike out route. The game ended with the Houston winning 6- 5. The CANOPUS was our opponent on Saturday, February 21, in our first errorless game. The hard hit­ting of the Houston team plus the excellent pitching of Vereley was responsible for the 8 - 5 victory. Vereley pitched a masterful game ­striking out i2 men and, though touched for ten hits, was never in trouble but for the 8th inning when he weakened slightly allowing a walk and three hits. This, coupled with an interference by Truskowski, allow­ed 4 runs to cross the plate. Dingler led the Houston batters with 4 hits in as many times at bat. On Sunday, February 22, the Hous­ton was victor over the 16th NAVAL DISTRICT by a score of 9 - 5. The Houston was off to a fast start in the first inning when Battenger walk­ed; and singles by Bain, Stefanek, Koski, with sacrifice by Dingler, tal­lied 4 runs. The highlight of the game was the mighty wallop, by The following quotation comes from one of our rival newspapers. What are we going to do about it? ...." Well Sir, the old Covered Wagon rolled right over the pride and joy of the USS Houston, and in no un­certain terms. Saturday night, last, our fighters took on five of the best the Flagship could offer; three of them were put away via the K. O. route, one of them was beaten up in a bloody sort of a way, to lose by a decision, and we let them have one just to keep their spirits Ul>.... They were a great bunch of fights and you who were'nt there certainly missed something. Everyone must be pre­sent next Saturday night when Pat­Wing Ten takes three Asiatic Fleet Championships back to Cavite." - Langley Sports News. Trainer, for the farthest hit ball seen in Cavite in ages, for a home run. In the 9th, Mullins made a spectacu­lar diving one- hand stop of a fast ground ball right over second base. In the previous week, the Houston crossed bats with the strong, hard hitting team of the LANGLEY at Harrison Field. Although we lost this one by the score of 4 - 3, it was a spectacular and hard fought game through the entire tilt, the deciding run crossing the plate in the latter part of the last inning. Going into the last, the Houston was leading by the score of 3 - 2, but a couple of well placed hits by the Langley put the game " on ice" for them. Taking leave over Washington's Birthday, two Houston officers jour­neyed to Batangas, where they hunted deer and wild boar on an old Spanish hacienda plantation. There were six in the hunting par­ty. As they advanced through the brush, native beaters circled around and drove the game within range of the guns. They were very successful, for in the time of one hour and a half the six of them had bagged a total of 14 deer and five wild boars. They would have had more, but they were allowed to shoot only in a certain sector, for fear of hitting the beaters. These hunts are held twice a year. This particular plantation is noted for the fact that every Big Com­missioner to the Philippines in recent years has participated in its hunts. ...... LOOKOUTS Not only the men standing lookout watches, but ALL MEN on topside should be alert to report any strange things they see. Engagements in modern naval war­fare seldom last more than a few minutes. This makes it more impor­tant than ever that the enemy be sighted before he sights you. For this means that you will be able to open fire first, and history has shown that the ship which gets the first ( Continued on page 3)
