VISIT THE HALL Bored and frustrated by the current baseball strike? Looking for something to do on the weekend? Visit the newly opened Texas Sports Hall of Fame in Grand Prairie. It's well worth the trip. I had the pleasure of visiting The Hall over the past weekend and for this avid sports freak it was seventh heaven. The Hall has it all. Not only do you get to visit the past through movies, old radio broadcasts, etc., but there are elec- tronic computer games, hints from the pros through video tapes, four action theatres with spectacular clips from past great moments in Texas sports history, trophies and momentos. The Hall is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. -9 p.m. every day of the year except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. To get to The Hall simply take 1.30 (the old Turnpike) and exit on Belt Line Road and follow the signs. Admission is for adults and $1.50 for children (ages four through 12). Take the time and visit The Hall. It will be a visit you'll not soon forget. i'// SLUGGERS - Pictured left to right, front row, is Stephanle Leopard, Terry Piper, Melissa Redden, Back row is Coach Sandra Bevel, Lana Harton, Sandy Shook, Robin Avant, Tonya Talley, Audry Davis, Coach Verna Shook.

"Offensive linemen don't want glory," Brown said. "The only time one of us draws attention is when he holds, misses a block, or blows an assignment. It's a fact of football life that the better we do our job, the less anybody notices." S t on a Fri. and Sat. July 1 O & 11 217 So.
