Seals Send Drilling To Yakima on Option
Right-hander Bob Drilling is on his way to Yakima, after being optioned by San Francisco to the Western International league club.
Drilling, who pitched for the same club last year, has seen action in only one Seal contest this year that being against Seattle two weeks ago. In his only appearance Bob yielded four hits and three runs, while working two innings.
The 21-yesr-old hurler started his baseball career with the Salt Lake City Bees in 1947, and had a great initial year, winning 23 and dropping only five games. Last year, however, things went the reverse and Drilling won only eight while losing 23 for Yakima.
