P.~GE 4 THE FLORALA NEWS - THURSDAY, JULY ourney Little League Action by Liz Bates The Florala All-star Little League team fell to defeat at the hands of the Monroeville All-Stars on Thursday, June 22, at the Andalusia Little Lea- gue Tournament. Although the score was 10- Z, the Florala All-Stars put forth a gallant effort and never gave up the fight for victory un- til the end of the game. Tile game began with Mon- roeville at hat. Florula promptly pot them out with three-up and three-oui style. Beth and Leigh Lindsay, at first and second base, res- pecUvely, took the first two players out at first and pit- cher Mike Hanson struck the third hatter out. The crowd seemed to gain considera!4e respect for the Lind_say twins after that first ending. Before, some of the crowd bad given the two girls a hard time about playing Little League, but that quickly ended after the first two outs. Florala came to hat and gain- ed one run the first ending, as Michael Hlnsou hit a double to knock Leigh Llndsay in. The second inning, the Mon- roevllle team was held score- less, while Florala scored their second run. The third inning was a dif- ferent hall game. A big tall hall player from Mouroeville knocked a home run with bases loaded to change the score from 0-2, to 4-Z, in their favor. After that, the Florala All- Stars just couldn't seem to get it all together. Gregory Hut- chesou took over as pitcher as Hlnsun went to short stop. Hutcheson did strike several players out, but before the game ended, the Monroeville team had scored six more points, while holding" Florala to 2. Florala seemed to fall vic- tims to some rather expert pitching on the of the Monroe- ville pitcher. He bad several strike-outs to his credit, also before the game ended. Mouroeville advanced to the semi-finals and played Anda- lusia on Friday night. Anda- lusia bad defeated Opp just be- fore the Flornla game. Tile Florala team was coach- ed by Morris Myerson and Jack Hutchesou. The players were: Beth Lindsay, Leigh Lindsay, Brian Smith, Mike Fleming, Cliff Zorn, alternate, David Smith, Gregory Hutcheson, James Cobb, Scott Crosby, Mike Hanson, Geoffrey Diggs, David Johnson and Bruce Mad- dox. All of the Florala players did an excellent job. Scott Crosby caught several fly balls in out field, while Gregory Hutchesou and Leigh Lindsay pulled one double play. Brian Smith ou third, made some good plays and pot at least one runner out. David Smith efficiently handled center field, while Geoffrey Diggs took care of right field. David Johnson served as cat- cher for the entire game and at one point was more or less tackled by a Monroeville play- er. Bruce Maddox took left field also. David Moody relieved Leigh Lindsay at second, for part of the game and did an ex- cellent job as well as Jamss Cobb, who took over for Beth Lindsay at first base. Reggil Berry also played right field. Even though they did not win, the All-Stars did a fine job is representing Florala. Better luck next year, kids.

Armadillos Take Up At McRae Homeplace by Merle Woodbam Mom and Mack (Lucile and A. T. McRae)went out to Mack's place one day last week just to check on things and what do you know they ran up on? Four baby armadillos feeding along side on the drive. They make their home burrowed under the ground near the old chicken house, which is practically covered with vines. They root in the ground just like a bunch of pigs, for grubs and worms. The ground around the chicken house is worked up practically good enough for planting. The first day they saw them, all four were feeding right close together, and naturally, Morn didn't have her camera. Since that time, they have all been scattered, making it bard to get a picture of more than one at a time. The little devils will let you walk right up to them. They are so busy with their rooting, they don't pay people a bit of attention. If the parents are around, they are a bit more cautious and stay completely out of sight. They are supposed to be noc- turnal critters. So I suppose the mamma and pappa feeds at night. The little fellows will most likely learn not to feed dur- ing the day. They are already beginning to learn this, for we are seeing less and less of them. I read a while back where they are carriers of the dread dis- ease, leprosy. Sure hope they disappear before we become attached to the little critters. I would hate to be shipped off to some island to live the rest of my life, a~ a leper.
