HerakJ-Ze/fung,NB starts play today in tourney
The 13-ycar-old Babe Ruth South Texas Tournament starts today, with New Braunfels one of five teams competing in the double-elimination event.
New Braunfels advanced to the tournament, which takes place in Kenedy, by sweeping its district play against Seguin and Luling.
The team opens against Eagle Pass, today at 5:30 p.m. in Kenedy.
If New Braunfels wins, it will play again at 3 p.m. Saturday against an Austin team which received a bye. With a first-round loss, the team would play at 5:30 p.m. Saturday against the loser of today’s other first-round game — which pairs the host Flax team with a San Antonio area team.
The team could play two games on Saturday. If New Braunfels won its opener and then lost to Austin in the 3 p.m. Saturday game, it would stay for a second Saturday game at 8 p.m.
In any other situation, the team would play its third game on Sunday — provided New Braunfels wins at least one of the first two games.
The tournament winner advances to an out-of-state Babe Ruth tournament.
New Braunfels team members are Ruben Ybarra, Carlos Dc la Cerda, Jimmy Gomez, Marc Castillcja, Kris Vorpahl, Jose Vital, Sid Gosa, Jerry Van Noy, Grant Hill, Gabriel Bustos, Thomas Carroon, Mark Wicsncr, Bradley Dark and Justin Dunlap.

Re-signed Ryan falls to Toronto
ARLINGTON (AP) — The Toronto Blue Jays are so hot not even Nolan Ryan, new contract and all, can cool them down.
Ryan got to enjoy his new multimillion dollar contract about six hours before the American League Eastern Division leading Blue Jays spoiled the celebration party.
Greg Myers and Joe Carter rocked Ryan with homers in a 4-0 victory Thursday night over the Texas Rangers
“Both were on hanging curve-halls," Ryan said. "That's what a hot learn does with hanging curveballs. They are play mg awfully well right now."
It was Toronto's 13ih victory in us last 16 games and the Jays jumped to a seven game lead over Detroit. Slumping Texas has lost four rn a row and seven of eight since the All-Star break
David Wells, IM, and reliever Duane Ward combined to pitch a four-hiller
ll was Toronto's 12th shutout of the year, most rn the majors
Ryan’s record dropped to 5-5 as he went seven innings, yielding five hits with four walks and five stakeouts.
He agreed to terms on contract options for 1992 and 1993 before the game
"The contract deal wasn't a distraction, I just made bad pitches," Ryan said "That contract thing didn’t come into play. You just have to block it out and do what you have to do."
Toronto Manager Clio Gaston said nothing gives a team a lift like beating Ryan.
“I’m glad we don't have to see hun again this year," Gaston said.
Caner said it’s always fun "to get Nolan before he gets you. again it
