Eighty years ago, on March 14, 1929, reports coming in from spring training quarters of the Seattle Indians in southern California indicated that Emil Theiler, former star player for the Manteca Maulers of the Don Pedro League, was doing fine work in practice games being held. He continued to play third base and bat in the leadoff position for Seattle. In the previous Friday's game against Oakland, he handled four chances but failed to dent the hit column.
TRACY - The youth movement is in full swing at Manteca High, and while slugger Trina Solario represents the only senior leadership this season, that doesn't mean the Buffaloes can't play a little ball.
TRACY - Tracy High head coach Vic Alkire said Wednesday's anticipated showdown with East Union, "started off like a city league softball game," with both teams taking turns walloping away in the early innings.
