Page 4F SPORTS Statesman Journal, Salem, Ore., Saturday, June 17, 1989 Anderson is Cooke's big server By Joe Petshow The Statesman Journal To say right-handed pitcher Ric Anderson will carry the Cooke Stationary American Legion base- ball team this summer is an exaggeration, but only a slight one. Coach Steve Hendrickson said: "This summer, Ric's going to have to carry the bulk of the load on the hill. He's 1 I m 9 A Ma w M. ill Ric Anderson going to pitch about every league game he's available." Anderson, 18, is looking forward to the challenge. "I'll get a lot more playing time this summer," he said. "I'm one of the top pitchers on the staff." Anderson (1-1) got off to a good start, throwing a 5-0 shutout June 10 against Dr. Stewart's of Rose-burg. Anderson struck out nine and allowed two hits. "I pretty much kept them off balance," he said. "And I was mixing up my pitches well. "I stayed ahead in the count. That's what I have to do this summer." Getting behind in the count cost Anderson on Thursday in Cooke's 4-2 loss to the Salem-Keizer 76ers. All four of the 76ers' RBI came when Anderson fell behind hitters. Anderson also had problems staying ahead of the count during the spring season, when he played for Hendrickson's Chemeketa Community College team. Anderson was 2-3 in 30 innings and wasn't satisfied with his performance. "I had a bad year," he said. "I was pretty erratic. I could have been more consistent." Part of the problem was that Anderson tried to change his delivery, from overhand to sidearm. The experiment didn't work, so the 6-foot-3, 180-pounder is back throwing over the top. Anderson, a South Salem graduate, has shown steady improvement the past three years. He didn't play much on varsity his junior year in high school, and finished his senior season with a 4-2 record. Anderson said he's undecided about what four-year college he'll attend, but said he'd like to play for a school that offers an engineering or pre-engineering program. Until he makes that decision, he'll try to engineer Cooke Stationary into the state playoffs. Hendrickson said: "Without him we'd be a decent team. If we can come up with some other starters behind Ric, we should have a pretty good season." Metro stops State, 111-81 The Class AAA Metro all-stars outscored the State 28-19 in the third quarter Friday en route to a 111-81 boys basketball win at Lin-field College in McMinnville.

Rightfielder Don Carroll had to contend with the fans at closer range than his teammates when Eugene's overflowing crowd was dispersed to a roped-off area along the right-field warning track that extended to center field. "I thought it would be bad at first, but they didn't say a word," Carroll said. "In fact, they were even complimenting me. At the beginning, I thought they were going to be all over me, and I didn't know what would happen if the ball got there."
