Wednesday, Stadium (3-1) home.

It’s Panthers and Tigers tomorrow at Rec Park as WHS takes on Stadium for the first time in the baseball program’s history.  The Tacoma school is a member of the Narrows 4A League.  Stadium is on a two-game spring-break Eastern Washington swing.  Tomorrow they play at Moses Lake.  The Tigers have the same record as the Panthers, 3-1.  SHS has defeated Decatur, Shelton and Yelm, and lost to Gig Harbor.


Baseball, Wenatchee and Stadium…there is a connection.  Al Libke was born in Tacoma and a 1936 graduate of Stadium who later operated the Al Libke Insurance Agency right here in town for many years.  Libke was no ordinary ballplayer.  He played for the Wenatchee Chiefs in 1941 and ’49, and the Seattle Rainiers in ’42 and ’44.  The pinnacle of his career was 1945 and ’46 when he was an outfielder and played in 254 for the Cincinnati Reds.


Wenatchee is ranked seventh in the first Washington Baseball Poll of the season.  The poll just came out yesterday and the Panthers trail 1 Puyallup, 2 Snohomish, 3 Roosevelt, 4 Tahoma, 5 Ferris and 6 Cascade (Everett).

Golf…the “in” attire 77 years ago.

When researching info on Wenatchee’s state tournament basketball games in March, 1937, I found the following in the Seattle Times.

GOLF – the well-dressed golfer will have a fairly comfortable range of choice in selecting his 1937 raiment.

While “slacks,” long pants in other words, will continue to hold majority favor as a covering for the legs, there are indications that knickers are beginning to regain some small portion of the popularity they once held.  The man who plays fairly regularly will probably have both slacks and knickers, wearing the former when the weather is fine and the latter when the days are rainy and the fairways soggy.  Flannel and gabardine will be preferred materials for both slacks and knickers.

The gaucho shirt, popular for the last couple of seasons, will rule the roost as the most favored garment for the upper regions.  The old familiar sleeveless sweater will be infrequently seen.  The polo shirt will appear in the form of a short-sleeved gaucho shirt.

Colors in upper garments will range from neutral shades to rather bright blues and greens, but really violent shades will be taboo. 

Footwear will be little changed, with the one-color idea continuing in vogue, as opposed to the two-tone styles of half-a-dozen years ago.  More and more, however, removable caulks will be used, so that the player can get new caulks without having to get new soles on his shoes.

For wear while going to and coming from the club, the well-dressed golfer will have a sport coat of rough material, in brown, grey or possibly greenish or bluish mixture.

In golf, the lad with the properly fitted outfit FEELS like playing golf.
