OREGON SPORTS HISTORY/1958: Giants, Dodgers hit West Coast, and ground is broken on Lloyd Center, while Pilots beat Ducks in baseball at Sckavone

April 10-11, 1958

As the last remaining tickets are sold for the first major league baseball game on the West Coast (San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Dodgers at Seals Stadium in San Francisco), the Triple-A Portland Beavers continue a barnstorming tour with victories over the Modesto Reds and Bakersfield Mounties in California.

• As ground is broken on what is planned to be the nation's largest shopping center, the $100 million Lloyd Center, the University of Oregon plays two baseball games at Sckavone Field on Friday, April 11. The Ducks lose 5-0 to the Portland Pilots in an 11:30 a.m. contest, then top Portland State College 14-0 in a 3 p.m. clash. The UP pitcher, right-hander Joe Etzel, holds the Webfoots to six hits and one walk, with seven strikeouts. Oregon had won five games in a row.

• The 21st annual Hayward Relays at Hayward Field in Eugene include 84 teams and more than 1,000 top prep track and field athletes in four divisions.

n Portland youth amateur boxers, from 85 to 132 pounds, stage an exhibition at MacLaren School for Boys in Woodburn, trying to help create interest in the school's intramural program.
