A note before you read: Racquetball's older Men's pro tour history is rife with politics. This is meant to be more of a historical document, not a judgment on the events that occurred during tour transitional phases. This Information is gleaned from MANY sources (some impartial, others biased).
Tournament also is the debut for multiple-junior olympic champion Jose Rojas at the age of 17, who qualifies for the main draw with wins over tour veterans Fillipini, De Los Rios, and Odegard before losing to Beltran 8,5,(1),11 in the round of 16. Is he the next Jack Huczek?
