Seventy years ago, on April 19, 1940, a five-run rally in the ninth inning of the ball game against Modesto High enabled Manteca High to squeeze out a hard-earned 8-7 victory. The thrilling win placed Coach Larry Siemering's tossers on top of the Modesto Sub-league loop with three wins and no losses and three games remaining to be played in league competition.

One opening day I caught no trout at all and on another, I caught only four.

Ninety years ago, on April 12, 1920, Manteca started the ball season right by winning the first game they played. The game was with Escalon and while this team is not a member of the league, it is a good fast team and has won all the games played this season before this game.

He pitched all of last season and was a big factor in winning ...
