So it should be no surprise that when coach Jeff Katseanes turned to 14-year-old Dillon Manzanares as a relief pitcher in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against Snake River, he would come up aces for the Blackfoot Bronco Legion team.
"We expect big things out of Dillon and he will probably set some records in his time as a legion ballplayer," said Katseanes. "He is young, the youngest ball player that we have, but he is tough as nails and pitches very smart."

Buildings F and G, former patient wards located on the north side of the State Hospital campus, were constructed in 1932 and officially opened in 1933. The two-story buildings were occupied as separate men's and women's wards until 1988 when the treatment methods used there became obsolete, said Support Services Director Greg Horton. The wards were replaced by the Patient Treatment Facility used today.
