PAULEY INC, Evenings Call Bu Rose -- 426-2156 Bob Wolden -- 426-3261 This Sunday another trial-by- fire will test it further when Sny- der dispatches his talent against Burien's Connie Mack roster in an- other doubleheader on Loop Field. First pitch is slated for I o'clock. TIIAT FIRST game wasn't as lopsided as six runs would seem. It was scoreless through five in- nings with Shelton's Brian Sny- der locked in a nifty flinging duel with Rainier's Dave Preugschat. Despite his battle against control wobbles all the way, the muscu- lar Shelton righthander had the edge, giving one hit against three. Snyder actually walked only 3 through those goose-egg innings but he had three balls on eight others and was constantly behind the hitters. It made for much wear and tear on nerves and a vastly more difficult situation for Sny- der. In the sixth i wasn't control, however, that did him in. It was his defense. The visitors scored five times, but only their first was earned, on lVes Pruitt's off- field triple to right which should have been held to a single and Lynn Ratliff's solid single to cen- ter. Moments later, however, with the bases full and two out, Ron Landis let n easy grounder get by him at first for two runs and Preugschat singled home two more. IN TIIE SEVENTH Snyder got the first two batters, then in suc- cession a walk, a triple and a single for two runs to bring in Ken Droscher for his first com- petitive effort since breaking a bone in his foot last January. He struck out the last man. Shelton's lone run was produc- ed by Mike Sheedy's triple down the leftfield line and Terry La- Bissoniere's single to center in the sixth. Lefty Tim Rose shackled Rain- ier Beach with four hits in the second game, shortened to six in- nings by rain. Two of the runs off Rose were unearned, in the sixth. due to an error by Tom Wingard at short. SHELTON HAD the game stowed away by that time, how- ever, after a 4-ram outbreak in the fourth. Leading at that point, 1-0. as the result of first inning run produced on Snyder's single and three walks (the last to Rose}, Milt Densley started the fourth with a base on balls, then event- ually scored on a passed bali after Darrell Cochran beat out an In- tended sacrifice bunt and made second on the pitcher's wild throw.

Mike Sheedy's Late Swing Builds .471 Leading Bat 00verage Senior outfielder Mike Sheedy converted his penchant for off- field hits into a lusty .471 batting average which led all Iighclimber regulars for the 19(13 season. The stocky soutnpaw swinger, playing in 12 of Shetton's 14 games, was a constant menace for he not only whacked eight hits in 17 official trips to the plate but walked and got hit so often that. his official at bats totalled only about half what other reg- tflats had in the same number of games. For example, AI Veagner, ano- ther senior outfielder who played in one less game, made 39 offic- ial appearances and the team lea- der in at bats. sophomore Brian Snyder. had 44 trips in the record. Snyder also led the team in hits and runs scored with 12 each, sharing the hit lead with senior infielder Tom Wingard. One of the amazing statistics for this 1963 squad came in the RBI column, where sophomore Tim Rose, pitcher-outfielder, drove in ten runs with five hits to lead the club and his sophomore battery- mate, catcher Jim Richards, drove in eight tallies with sev'n hits. They respectively had .180 and .184 batting averages. Senior outfielder Bill Smith, who hit a stout. 393, also had eight runs batted in to share second honors with Richards.
