2B Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Sun., July 21, 19741 FAVETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS Mike Caspeny '! -Harris Hastens Team To Leion Tournament " T H E COACH: Thickly built Dick Harris has been rarely Svilhout three things this sum'rfter: a chaw of Beechnut toba- · 'ceo, overprcsent sunglasses and an exceptional American Legion ·team that has won 27 out of ·35 games. Harris does every- Hhing for the College Club con- 'tingency but bat clean-up. The "chief executive also serves as "the ground crew, watering and liming the Legion field and patching holes in the backstop with 'strips of green canvas. "The team is a loose con- fe'dcration 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 liberation Harris' most intense concern is trying to find the fragile balance between consideration "for his players and the main tenance of team discipline. "We "fry to take a fun apprach," the coach says. "We don't believe V!rt a 'win at all costs' policy." : But, unlike other mentors who · ,'havc adopted a new humilitj ; toward eccentric behavior ·Harris will not tolerate out '. -bursts of dissatisfaction. Afte' la recent game, he delivered a · lengthy, scolding oration to hi ;team. II wasn't the loss tha langered Harris, but rather the ; displays of helmet slinging Idirt kicking and umpire baiting : "IThe normally high character o ''the team had cracked and th "coach meant to heal the splil "'Nobody stirred on the bend ·'during the speech, and one ha' ·fife sense that esprit would soo 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, opportunis tic offense and slick defense Surprisingly enough, there neither a weak hitter nor fielde in Harris' line-up. The teai doesn't depend on the produi tion of one or two men. Eac victory has been accopplishd b the efficient performances r many players. Thus the coach preoccupation with team pla and morale has been embodie · on the field. THE PLAYERS: INFIELD '(1) Catcher: Larry Atha; ta 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 ark-haired moppet specializes whatever the team needs. He veeps up wild throws, steals asc hits and runs the bases ke 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 Md-off man, Porter has been lagued by an unaccustomed atting slump lately. (4) Short: lob Stephens: a smooth, rangy 1 elder and a reliable bats' lan (.290), Stephens occas onally pitches, too. (5) Third: ·lark pitcl Prernger; possessing a trong arm and an equally po- ent bat, Prenger owns a .358 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 wilh a 2.04 E.R.A. (7) Cener: Shelby Sizcmoro: an excellent hitter (.381) who is even more remarkable as a beefy lycalcher who agilely presides ver the alleys and Ihrows with orce and precision. (8) Jackie Davis: the curley-haired jester of Ihe team, Davis is an aggressive competitor with a crack arm and an able bat ;.32G). Davis' spirit has a unifying influence on the team. PITCHERS: (1) I.awson Osburn: The College Club stopper whose outstanding record (9-4; L.53 E.R.A.) is somehow less imposing thn his regal presence on the mound. He pads the hill like a prince pacing a game preserve. The hitters are both fiis subjects and prey. .The unflappable righthander shows batters plenty of his back along with a variety of pitches ser-' ved at different speeds from several angles. AH four of his losses have been by one run. (2) Brian Holt: a blond sixteen- year-old ready to accede to Osburn's throne, Holt has been the surprise of the team with a 7-2 record and 3.30 E.R.A. THE D I S T R I C T TOURNAMENT: Because of its league leading status, College Club has drawn a bye in the first round of the competition to be aged this week at Springdale. On Tuesday, Fayetteville will play the winner of Monday's Springdale-West Fork contest Game time is 4:30.
