May 19, 1963 (BRADDOCK)— The Beaver Valley Amateur Baseball League got underway, and Braddock erased a 4-run deficit to post a 9-6 victory over Linton. The visitors picked up a pair of runs in the first inning, one in the third and another in the sixth to open up a 4-0 lead, but Braddock, which went without a hit over the first five innings, used a Linton error to erupt for 9 runs in the bottom of the sixth to take the lead for good. Daryl Wittich’s homer in the ninth cut the margin to 9-6, but that wasn’t enough. Andy Schmidt pitched the final four innings to pick up the victory for Braddock, while Freddie Pahl took the loss for Linton. In other league openers, Al Dosch went six innings to pick up the victory in Strasburg’s 6-1 win over Wishek, and Napoleon edged Steele, 3-2.
