In a close game it was the Daisy Hill Blockheads 9, the South Park Italians 7 at County Stadium '61.

South Park fell behind quickly as the Daisy Hill offense came through in the first inning scoring 3 runners on 5 hits. The critical plate appearance was by Yogi Berra, who deflated the mood of the partisan fans when he tripled bringing in two baserunners. South Park threatened in the 9th but their rally came up short.

The victory was credited to Verdell Mathis(2-2) who went 5 innings, allowing 5 runs. Mathis was helped out by Bruce Sutter who recorded his 3rd save. Bill Byrd(1-3) ended up with the loss. He was not very effective, surrendering 6 runs in 2 innings.

Toy Boy was subdued after the ballgame, 'That one really hurts. If our guys had simply played more fundamentally sound, we could have won that one. That is what really ticks me off!'
