0.lC!t Jefs face it The 1931 summer
league basebaii team wasn't very good. In
fact f wins were the only things that mat
tered, it would seem that the season was
pretty much of a waste.
But, wins were not the only important
goals of the players who shared the losses
and the few wins this summer. One of the
major objectives was to find possible assets
for next spring maybe some underrated
player, who with a little help and encourage
ment could turn out to make big contribu
tions. Coach Mike Roberts and Coach Mark
Scalf achieved that goal this summer by
rediscovering the talents of John Marshall, a
transfer from Davidson who had to sit out
this past spring season due to the NCAA
Coach Scalf said that Marshall has emerg
ed from summer baseball with a good deal
of improvement and experience under his
"John came in here as jusf an average col
lege baseball player," Scalf said. "He wasn't
very strong physically. But, after this sum
mer's season, his strength has definitely im
proved. The extra practice has improved both
his hitting and his throwing.
"One of the biggest things John has going
for himself is that he has pne of the best at
titudes on the team," Scalf said. "He's in
telligent besrdes being a good ballplayer."
Scalf said that Marshall is versatile but
that he will mostly be used at first base as a
back-up to Pete Kumiega Marshall also
plays in the outfield and has pitched some.
Marshall said that playing in the summer
league under Scalf and Roberts has had a lot
of rewards even though the team didn't win
a lot of games.
"The summer season was worth it to me
because it got me that much more used to
playing under the program at UNC," he said.
"I've been able to find out the kind of player
thai the coaches expect me to be and I got
to play with a few of the. guys who will be
here this spring. , j; , ' .
"It might not be the funnest summer I've
ever had, but it might, turn out to be.. the,
most rewarding." t r
Marshall said that the real purpose behind
the summer league season is to work on in
dividual skills and that it gives the coaches
time to observe everyone and experiment
with new ideas.
"Coach Roberts and Coach Scalf put in a
lot of time to help me," Marshall said. "I
know Coach Scalf used to get to the field at
eight in the morning and wouldn't leave un
til eight at night.
"I remember one particular Saturday
night, when Coach Roberts stayed on the
field pitching batting practice to me until

Marshall expects to be used as a utility
man filling holes wherever he can whether
at first base, in the outfield, as designated
hitter, or pitcher.
"I want to play and contribute but if I'm
not playing I'd like to try to be a good exam
