28 Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Sun., July 2T, 19741 FAVETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS Mike Gaspeny "/Harris Hastens Team To Legion Tournament THE COACH: Thickly built Dick Harris has been rarely ^without three lliings this sum. 'ificr: a chaw of Beechnut toba- 'cco, everprcsent sunglasses and an exceptional American Legion ·team that has won 27 out of 35 games. Harris docs everything for the College Club con- ''tingency but bat clean-up. The ~chief executive also serves as '"the ground crew, \yatcring and liming the Legion field and patching holes in the backstop with 'strips of green canvas. " The team is a loose con- 'federation of styles and personalities bound together by a man who "likes to work with kids and a 'zeal for baseball. In an era when athletes of all ages are proclaiming their libera- 'tlon Harris 1 most intense concern is trying to find the fragile Jbalance between consideration ^for his players and the main tenance of team discipline. "We "fry lo lake a fun apprach." the coach says. "We don't believe , '.'fn a 'win at all coals' policy. 1 ; But, unlike other mentors who ' Ihave adopted a new humility ; toward eccentric behavior ·Harris will not tolerate out -bursts of dissatisfaction. After · a. recent game, he delivered t ! lengthy, scolding oration to hi: Ueam. It wasn't the loss tha ^angered Harris, but rather tin t displays of helmet slinging ;dirt kicking and umpire baiting : IThe normally high character o ;;the team had cracked and th '·coach meant to heal the splii '·Nobody stirred on the bencl ·^during the speech, and one hai Slfie sense that esprit would sooi be restored. . THEY WANT TO PLAY What Harris likes about hi team is that his boys "wan to play" -- an unsuual qualit nowadays-- and that they "ar smart, baseball-wise." He justifiably proud of the fusip of strong pitching, opportuni; tic offense and slick defense Surprisingly enough, there neilher a weak hitter nor fielde in Harris' line-up. The team doesn't depend on the produ tion of one or two men. Eac victory has been accopplishd b the efficient performances r rnany players. Thus the coach preoccupation with team pla and morale has been embodie · on the field. THE PLAYERS: INFIELD '(I) Catcher: Larry Atha; la and limber for a backstop, excels at the plate and in th field. Larry leads the team average (.466) and RBI (29 ) First: Rick Karnbach: this rk-haired moppet specializes whatever the team needs. He veeps up wild throws, steals ase hits and runs the bases !e a mad gypsy. His .365 verage consists mainly of rong-field singles in timely tuations. (3) Second: Randy ortcr: highly competent in the eld and a usually effective ad-off man. Porter has been agued by an unaccustomed atting slump lately. (4) Short: ;ob Stephens: a smooth, rangy ielder and a reliable bals- lan (.290), Stephens occas- mally pitches, too. (5) Third: tfark Prenger; possessing a trong arm and an equally po- ent bat, Prenger owns a .353 verage that includes numerous xtra-base hits and four hom- rs -- the team high. TAYLOR VERSATILE OUTFIELD: Left:- (6) Rick Jaylor: leading the team in sto- en bases, this versatile performer doubles as a very effective hird pitcher, crafting a 4-0 re- ord with a 2.04 E.R.A.
