Pirate Mark Soots lost his cap as he slid hard into Jerry Ogden while attempting to break up the double play. Although Soots did his job in preventing the Godfrey shortstop from pegging the runner at first, host Washington lost the game game 6-3. Godfrey’s victory in late July kept the Gophers atop the Little Coast standings with a perfect 7-0 record.
Two other teams were also perfect at this point in 1975. Both Edison and Longfellow were 0-7. Ouch! I wonder who won that Clash of the Titans?
