Last season this time, the Columbus Jets were weak on the mound and weaker behind the plate. This year their pitching staff is going great guns, with a record of eight wins against two losses. They are so rich in catchers that they vvill send out, Elmer Plaskett on option, so that he can get regular work, as he Is third string here and stands a fKxir chance of seeing much oc- tion. Bob Veale. the southpaw with the blazing fast ball Is leading the pitchers with two shutouts. He siHuled Rochester opening day by blanking them In their own bock yard. Then Sunday, he turned back the Buffalo Bisons here at home, with five hits. He sent J.2 of them back to the bench by tht* strikeout route. Saturday night. Earl Francis mistreated the Bisons by shutting them out with four hils and fanning 11 men. Alvln Jackson held Buffalo to six hits and one run, but his teammates could not get him any runs, so he bowed to the Bisons 1-0. 0) WILLIE MAYS, whom a lot Of experts call the greatest ball player ot this era, had his greatest day at the plate .Sunday against Milwaukee. Willie hit four homeruns in five times up to drive In 8 runs. He performed this record-breaking feat'in the Milwaukee Braves park, which makes it mare remarkable titan If he had hit them In his own park at San Francisco. One never realizes how consistent a ballplayer Willie Mays is until he starts looking at the. records. In 1935 Willie hit his greatest numlier of homers in * season. In 1956. he swiped the most bases io his career. In 1957, he hit the largest number of triples of his lifetime. The end of the 1958 season found Willie with the highest batting average of his life, tn 1959, he hit more doubles then ever before. Now In 1981. he has hit the most homers In one gome in his career and in so doing wrote his name with those of the immortals. Mays Is the only player ever tc hit 30 homers and steal 30 hascs In the same season. He has done It twice in his. career. 0) COACH WOODY HAYES will unveil his 1961 model of the Ohio State football machine.
