September 30, 1967

Gil Hodges is confronted with the puzzle of putting together the pieces for a winning club in Washington. There is no question that the Senators next year will go largely for youth. The dean of the club should be Camilo Pascual, the veteran righthander who was knocked out of action with a broken leg. Pascual

Pascual Out for Year with Broken Leg

September 9, 1967

It’s the end of a dream for Camilo Pascual, but it should be only temporary.

Zoilo Versalles returned to action June 24 after missing a little less than two weeks with a muscle injury similar to the one that affected Camilo Pascual and which required surgery a year ago. Versalles probably must face an operation, too – either soon or after this baseball season. The injury is apparently affecting his
