50 Years Ago This Week – 1962
In American Legion baseball this week in 1962, the St. Marys squad played “up” against the St. Marys Lakers, and in a battle which not many expected them to stand a chance; they came away with the 9-8 victory.
The Legion squad led 1-0 after an inning, but found themselves down 6-1 heading into the bottom of the sixth frame. They plated two runs in the bottom of the sixth, but allowed two more in the seventh to trail 8-3.
WAPAKONETA — What a difference a week makes.
Seven days ago, the Wapakoneta ACME baseball team sent rival St. Marys home with its tail between its legs thanks to a 17-0 shellacking at K.C. Geiger Park.
Thursday at Wapakoneta High School, St. Marys jumped all over Wapak starting pitcher Andrew Hines for four first-inning runs.
But Hines settled down and Wapakoneta chipped away at the St. Marys lead to pull out a 5-4 win.
Wapak improved to 5-0 on the season. St. Marys is 3-4.
