They’ll be a *» . 0 . ■ 8-team league this summer. “Sibby\ -and “The Barberllwill have many a story to tell in the dugouts or wherever they decide to turn .back the pages iri their illustrious .baseball careers. We can’t vi/ait to ' hear S a l ' tell of his experiences in tlie Mexican League or with’ the Giants, Cards, Dodgers, Yankees, Bed Sox and Cleveland Indians. “Sibby” should have a field day going back to his days as an infielder with the Boston and Milwaukee Braves, R a c e h a c k O p e n s M e e t X e x t W e d n e s d a y Ed Moore^ writing from one.of tlie stalls at the nearby Finger Lakes Bade Track in Farmington, reminds the $2 bettors, as well as the plungers, T hat the upstate thoroughbred raeing season will be ushered in 'at 2 p.m. oir Wednesday’, May 22.

The book lists 260 golf facilities that welcome pifblic play. They are classified as: commercial courses, resort hotel courses open to greens-fee golfers, municipal links, Courses in state and county parks and private clubs open to visiting .golfers upon pay­ ment of a grqens fee. The 1968 golf booklet groups the 260 courses into 11 vacation areas with each containing an alphabetical listing pf the course, its general location arid facilities available. Listed facilities include- caddies, caddy carts and riding carts. Greens fees, yardage and rated par for each course,are also recorded in the golfing guide­ book. The average New York State 18-hole course is a 6,000-yard challenge. However, courses in the booklet range from a 9-hole, 550-yard layout in East Rochester, to an I8-hote, 7,672-yard giarit lat Kiamesha Lake. A 72 par for 18 holes is norm on New York courses, hut par at some clubs is as low as 54 to 60. Fees, in general, average S3 for 9-hole'courses; and'from $4 t o $5 for 18-hole courses that have more-elaborate facilities and con­ veniences, While golf originated on the Scottish highlands during the 14th century, the game has played a',significant part in Empire State history. ' The sport actually made its American debut during the mid- 17th century: on the streets o f Albany. However, at the time, the Suhday golfer’s greens fees were paid in fines to the Dutch-con­ trolled courts rather than the golf course. * • » I' Free Ride on Sports Merry-Go-Round Mrs. Alberta E.

Just after we had gone on record that Coach Dick Phillips’ young school nine would never blow a 7-run lead again, we learn that Victor came up with eight runs ih the. - last three innings to wipe out the seven ..runs scored !by Newark in the first four innings.
