LEGION J The victory moved Doylestown (16-13-2 overall, 9-5 league) into sole possession of first place in the Bucks Division. Souderton which re- ceived two hits apiece from Troy Myers and Jim Wismer, drops a game in the standings to Mont- gomery Division leader Perkio- men, which defeated Pennridge, 6-3. "It was a very big win for said Doylestown head coach Tim Sands. "We swung the bats bet- ter tonight (Tuesday) than we have all year. Even in the first two innings, when we didn't score, ".ve had men on base and hit the ball hard." Despite Doylestown's solid hit- ting, Souderton took the early lead with a single run in the sec- ond inning. But Doylestown bounced back with three runs in the bottom of the third inning.

The game took a sour turn for the visiting Golden Generals, though, in the bottom of the third inning.. After reliever Scott Forster is- sued a bases-loaded walk to Hat- field's Dan Stevens, giving Hat- field a 5-4 edge, Fort Washington head coach Lou Lombardo pulled his team off the field, leav- ing Hatfield with the forfeit vic- tory. According to Hatfield head, coach John Pedrazanni, Lombar- do said "he was not going to waste anymore (pitcher's) arms with this type of umpiring' "Lou was very Pedra- zanni said. "It didn't go smoothly between he and the (home-plate) umpire from the very beginning. "Tonight was the strangest "ending I've seen in all my years. I've seen teams pulled off the field eight or nine runs down late in the game, but never in a close game like this." said when contacted later Tuesday night he had no pitchers left and with a league game scheduled for today he did not want to risk injury. "I did pull the team off the field, but I never said why; I just said we're leaving and we said Lombardo. "We were out of pitchers. Nobody was left. Basi- cally, we were experimenting on some things and our experie- ments had been completed." QUAKERTOWN 9, EAST SIDE RAMS 7 Jim Angstadt's grand slam off the Scoreboard in left-center field highlighted a six-run third inning for Quakertown Tuesday night as it defeated the East Side Rams, 9-7, in non-league Legion action at Memorial Park.

Stef f ens signs pact with Phillies Mark Steffens got his wish when he signed a contract to play professional baseball ?n :he Phil- lies' Organization. file photo) By Nick Fierro Sports Writer Mark Steffens stepped into a different world Tuesday: the professional baseball world. Steffens signed a contract with Phillies scout Joe Reilly Tuesday and was designated for assignment to the minor leagues, probablv to Batavia (N.Y.) of the New York-Penn League. According to Steffens, it is the best scenario. The Phillies, he claimed, were his first choice all along. "I'd have to say said the Germantown Acade- my graduate. "I like to be around my family a lot. I'm a family oriented person.... And I think it's great to go to the local team, having my family come down to watch." With his signature, Steffens closed an accomplished ama- teur career that included stints with GA, Fort Washing- ton Legion, Pensacola (Fla.) Junior College and the Quak- ertown Blazers of the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League. Originally a 21st draft pick by the Phillies after gradual- j, jyy ff S jf f ff ffj r BASEBALL J ing from GA in 1988, Steffens opted for junior college. He has spent the last two sum- mers playing for the Blazers. He was hoping his name would come up again in last month's amateur draft, even though he had just signed a letter of intent with the Uni- versity of South Alabama. "Who knows what's going on in their Steffens said of the pro scouts who had been following his career. "Maybe they thought I couldn't play, I don't know. But why would I be doing so well right now? And why did they draft me in the first But the contract has taken the sting out of the disappoint- ment of being passed on by major-league clubs. "I might even be happier to be signing Steffens said. "Number one, I got to play with the Blazers and put up some numbers with them. Number two, it's the home- town team." Steffens, who had been scheduled to attend a tryout with the Cleveland Indians and also was drawing interest from the Chicago White Sox, became the Blazers' top hitter when former teammate Tom Nuneviller, a Pennridge gradu- ate and West Chester Univer- sity product, signed with the Phillies last month and de- parted for Batavia. Through June 24, Steffens was third in the ACBL with a .476 batting average, second in the league with 16 RBIs and third with 20 hits. "The way he was playing at the time of the draft, I was surprised (he wasn't said Blazers head coach Den- ny Robison. "He was really hitting the ball well and run- ning well. I thought somebody might take a chance on him." Despite not being drafted, Steffens did not put any more pressure on himself with the Blazers this summer. "Every season, to me, is really he said. "As far as this year, I just went out and played baseball ;
