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.
