Graham, who finished 10th in last weekend's Saskatche- wan Open in Regma, played the front nine in one-under par 34, but bogeyed 10, 12 and 13 to fall to two-over. But on the 488-yard Mft, a par-five, he sunk a seven-foot putt for an eagle ttoee to go back to par. Then on the 18th green, be slid in a three-footer for a birdie three.

Royals take on Calgary Sunday The Lethbridge Koyals will host the Calgary Casuals in a Calgary Senior Men's Soccer League game Sunday. The afternoon tilt is slated to go at p.m. at the Civic Centre. The Centennial Bantam Base- ball League's board of directors voted down a protest submitted by the Lethbridge Sansei Friday night and left the local club holding a thin rope in their battle for the championship title. The Sanseis are currently one game down in their best-of-three final playoff series against Taber and win now need to win their next outing to slay alive. Sanseis issued the protest af- ter suffering a 21-16 setback in the opener in Taber Wednesday night but the league directors voted 3-1 to torn it down The major underlying reason for the protest was due to Uie inadequate playing conditions The Taber ball field has no fence surrounding the out-field and during the actual game a soccer match was being held a short distance from right field. Bias umpiring which was sited as another reason for the pro- test was thrown out as being immateriaL Anyway you look al ft, the Sanseis are in a do-or-die situ- ation and must win the nest match to survive.

Here's on interesting puz- I zler How can a batter in baseball have 10 pitches thrown to him during one I time at bat with none of I them being still I remain at bat? Here's the [answer The batter comes I up with two out and a man I on first base, and gets a I count of 3 and 2 Then the I runner at first is out stealing, I ending that inning The I same batter would lead off tha next inning with whof of- Ificially is still considered the same time at bat, and again runs the count to 3 and thus giving him 10 pitches, I with no fouls, in one time at bat. Can you imagine a major league baseball team making I 17 errors in one game? I ft happened to the Cubs in a game in 1889, and ta make j that record even mere fan-1 tattle ,they made those 171 errors in just 7 innings since the game was called in the 8th because of darkness! I Has there ever been any one pitcher in pro baseball who pitched BOTH left-hand- ed AND right-handed in the tame game? There was a player in the lone Star Lea- gue in 1948, who not only pitched both righry and lefty but had an additional oddity I about him He was a I one-m-a-million pitcher, but I but his name, oddly enough was Ralph Ketcherl I I I bet you didn't knew!
