1940: 9th inning rally sends Buffs past Modesto

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. Stellar relief hurling by Bill Blodgett, who took over the mound in the seventh, turned the trick after the Panthers had blasted Lou Bronzan's offerings for a total of six runs and eight base hits in ...

Thank PG&E on opening day fishing

Opening day is always special to me. Each year my primary goal is to fish all day and see no other anglers. When you consider that over two million Californians buy trout stamps and that most of them are out fishing opening day, you can appreciate my goal. In the last ten years I've only had one opening day that I've seen anyone else astream. My secondary opening goal is to catch fish. One opening day I caught no trout at all and on another, I caught only four.

1980: Joe Wickham 7th in Formula Vee racing

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. A large crowd turned out and cheered lustily. The score at the close stood 7 to 2 in favor of the home boys. Elmer Blodgett started off right, pitching a first class game. He pitched all of last season and was a big factor in winning ...

Coaching, curveballs & class

I walked onto the football field for the first time as a player in 1968 and walked off for the last time as a coach in 2002. In 1998 I started sports writing with a focus on youth sports and have been doing so more or less ever since – for one paper or another.
