Now that the baseball season
is back with us in full swing,
we'll do all we can to keep you
up-to-date on the achievements
of the Jewish major leaguers
and Sandy Koufax in particu-
lar, because Sandy still has an
opportunity to develop into one
of the great lefthanders - of all
(Last Saturday night,
Koufax pitched the first
no-hitter of the major
leagues this year. In 1962
Koufax pitched the last
National League no-hitter

Mets on June 30. On
Wednesday he went 12
innings to win another

In his first performance since
he was sidelined last season—
his bad finger, as a matter of

up only five hits and fanned 10

fastball was back with him, and
that he had no trouble gripping
In his second start, however,
Koufax fared less successfully,
and this time against a compara-
tively weak team, too — the

good control and fanned four,
but in the sixth inning the Colts
caught hold of him and sent
eight batters to the plate. The
Dodgers lost and Koufax took
the defeat on his. record.
After his first win, Koufax
said that "the finger didn't
bother me a bit." Now that he's
healthy once again, Sandy had
better win, if his' team is to
make a big move toward the
flag. Without him, the Dodgers
are in deep trouble. With him,
their chances are very good to
go all the way, but only if his
form is that of last year, before
he was hurt.
