RIPON - Comfortably ahead in the second half, the Ripon High soccer team's starters re-entered the game for the final 15-minute minute stretch of their Trans Valley League match at Ripon Christian Monday.
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.
