Notes discovered while reading sports sections from March 1959:
• Gene Mauch, Minneapolis Millers manager, was hoping a 4-pound iron ball could rehab his ailing right arm and allow him to also play. He'd get eight at-bats.
• The Wayzata hairstyles weren't "ducktail or anything like that,'' but the Trojans had passed on the crewcuts worn by the players from other tournament teams.
• The Kalmikoff Brothers defeated Butch Levy and Karl Karlsson in a tag-team main event at the Minneapolis Armory. The Russians also cheated.
