Gordie Lowery,
the CYO catcher, has a smile of satisfaction as he successfully steals third base during Monday's Industrial League game at the Powell Street grounds. Pete Blanchard is the Astoria third baseman. CYO, with home runs from Ken Spees and Barry Moscovitz came out ahead, 6-3.

Left -  The caption was pretty cute - SPLIT DECISION AT HOME PLATE. Umpire Joe Frizzell had an embarrasing moment in a Pacific International Baseball League game at Central Park. His pants split as he dusted off home plate. Vancouver OK's Don Cowan looks on, not realizing the view from the other side (Ralph Bower Photo, Vancouver Sun, May 28, 1964)

Right - Rich McPhee of the Longshoremen slides into third base as a prostrate John Wilson of the Boilermakers drops the ball. Longshoremen won as Bob Elliott tossed a shutout.   (Ralph Bower Photo, Vancouver Sun, August 12, 1964)
