50 Years Ago This Week – 1962
CELINA — Trevor Kill found a little psychological edge for his relief appearance on an otherwise sleepy night in Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League play.
Kill, a Southeast Missouri State pitcher and St. Marys Memorial grad, worked 1 and 1-3 innings of scoreless relief against a Lima Locos team that turned him away.
While he was in there to get some work in during a blowout, Kill could take pride in his effort on a night little else went right for Grand Lake in a 12-4 loss to the Locos.
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The joy Kent State players and coaches have derived from the program’s first College World Series appearance has been diminished since they arrived because of the unexpected death of backup catcher and former Grand Lake Mariner Jason Bagoly’s mother.
Cheryl McHenry died unexpectedly at age 50 last Thursday, the day after the Golden Flashes arrived in Omaha.
ST. MARYS — The hits were flying around the ball park Tuesday evening for the St. Marys ACME baseball team as it swept a doubleheader from Sidney 16-1 in five innings in the first game and 16-6 in six innings in the second game.
“I think we did pretty well offensively,” St. Marys head coach Alan Huber said. “The kids did well in situational hitting and we had good pitching. Brandon (Coffey) pitched well and Marcus Wagner had a good showing in the second game, but he got a little fatigued and Isaac Fitzgerald came on to finish the game.”
The St. Marys’ ACME baseball team’s patient approach paid dividends late in its 11-8 comeback win over Elida on Monday night at K.C. Geiger Park.
St. Marys (5-5) rallied back from a six-run deficit with a nine-run bottom of the sixth inning by getting into Elida’s bullpen.
St. Marys worked the count and got Elida’s effective starter out of the game after four-plus innings.

ATHENS — The Grand Lake Mariners are a game back in the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League standings after they split their second doubleheader in as many days on Sunday.
On Sunday the twin bill was with the Southern Ohio Copperheads at Bob Wren Stadium.
Grand Lake overcame an early six-run deficit and scored single runs in the eighth and ninth innings to rally past the Copperheads, 7-6, in the nine-inning opener.
NEW BREMEN — The St. Marys ACME baseball team took advantage of its chances to score early and New Bremen couldn’t capitalize on its shots late on Friday night.
St. Marys defeated New Bremen, 4-1, as St. Marys starter Codie Deaton held down the Cardinals offense for six innings.
St. Marys scored all four of its runs in the first two innings. Tyler Rose singled to left to plate two runs Luke Leffel came home on an error to give St. Marys a 3-0 lead.

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.
