8The Daily Tar Heel Tuesday, March 7, 1989
Men's tennis looks ahead
By DAVID J. KUPSTAS
' The Tar Heel tennis team might
be able to gauge how good it is if
the weather would only cooperate.
"It's been very difficult with the
weather," said head coach Allen
Morris. "We've been outside one day
and inside the next day, so it's been
very difficult to get a groove on any
of the players."
The different type of courts make
more of a difference than people
might think, Morris believes. It's
more difficult for players to get their
timing down on the rubber indoor
surface than on the outdoor surfaces.
Today's match with William and
Mary is scheduled for 2 p.m. at the
outdoor courts of the UNC Tennis
Center. That is, if weather permits,
and there's a good chance of rain.
If it is raining and there are courts
available, the match will again be
moved indoors to the Chapel Hill
Rain or no rain, Morris is looking
at the match with the Indians as a
final tune-up before the team's tough
six-game Spring Break trip to
But don't chalk up another notch
in the Tar Heels' win column just yet.

(William and Mary) seem to get
stronger," Morris warned. Like Penn
State, whom UNC beat last week 8
1, William and Mary has a scrappy
team, one that cannot be counted out
until the end.
"Each year's a different year, and
1 really don't know what they've got
this year," he said.
The Tar Heels currently have a 4-
2 record. Their last two wins over
Elon and Penn State have been by
8-1 margins, but Morris has not yet
seen the UNC team he wants to see.
"I think we've got a lot of work
to do on our doubles, and we've got
some players on the team who aren't
playing well," Morris said. "Hope
fully, that will come around just by
more matches and more
For the match against the Indians,
only one minor change has been made
from last week's lineup. Sophomore
Thomas Tanner and freshman Bryan
Jones, both with 5-1 records, will
switch places on the singles ladder.
Jones will be the third seed followed
by Tanner at number four.
Top seed David Pollack (4-2) and
number two Don Johnson (4-2) are
a concern of Morris. Both are ranked
in the Volvo Intercollegiate Tennis
Coaches Association top 100 but have
their hat and by the confident way
they leaned back in their chair while

Baseball used to do something to
time. Whenever I was playing catch,
working on my hitting or simply
talking to the coach, time seemed to

doldrums, February always flew by,

was even shorter. Practice was never
too long, batting practice was always
too short and games seemed to jump
to the fifth inning. Unless, of course,
1 was pitching, and doing so badly.
IVe always had this love affair with
baseball. So has America. There's
something special about running out
onto the field at the start of the game
or lining up along the first- or third
base lines during the playing of the
There's something special about
stepping up to the plate, hearing your
name come over the loudspeakers
and realizing that the announcer has
once again mangled your last name.
"Leading off is number 26, David
Suwisski, David Sawinki, David
Saw...." (IVe always imagined that as
the announcer actually pronounces
my name correctly, a hush of awe
suddenly engulfs the crowd as they
realize that it is I who is about to
step up to the plate.)
Baseball seems to right all wrongs
and make everything fresh, new and
alive at least it did. If I had a

Baseball was always different from

America's national pastime, the love
of a nation.
Baseball is played by average men
from average and varied back

unusually big, strong or fast just
talented and dedicatedPart of the
allure of baseball is the fact that
anyone can play, no matter who they
are. At least that's the way it used
The latest trend in baseball is
toward big, strong, fast young play
ers. Players who look more like
slimmed down football linemen than
the classic Joe DiMaggio or Ted
Williams build are becoming the
norm instead of the exception. ' .
American people find it more
difficult to relate to the young
behemoths such as Jose Canseco,
Mark McGwire and Pete Incaviglia.

average son will some day play in the
big leagues. No longer will little kids

The people of the city were able,
for a few hours, to escape the
concrete, artificiality of their world.
When they stepped into the stadium
and gazed out over the field, an oasis
of green in a desert of cement and

given a new confidence in this world.
That's the way it used to be. Now

Baseball has lost a lot, but thank
God it's still as timeless as ever.
Nothing can take that away. A
baseball game can still go on forever,
and, hopefully, someday one will.
Baseball has changed, or maybe it's
just that I haven't. Regardless, every
time I glance over to the corner of
my room and see my trusty old bat,
aluminum nonetheless, just sitting
there collecting dust, I feel as if a huge

Just like the weather on Monday,
UNC's softball win was ugly. Yes, the
Tar Heels came away with a victory,
but it wasn't pretty.
North Carolina, coming off a
weekend split at Furman, nipped
Assumption College of Massachu
setts, 2-1, besides battling a brisk wind
and a harsh rain at Finley Field.
The victory upped the Tar Heels
record to 2-1 on the season, and gave
sophomore pitcher Tracey Brower
her second win of the 9 campaign.
One would assume that a win over
the visiting Greyhounds would be
automatic, but the victory was a
tough one to notch.
"We won and we're happy we did,"
North Carolina coach Donna Papa
said. "I would like to see us execute
offensively a little bit better. I don't
think we swung the bat with
Papa thought that even though her
club's plate performance was sub-par,
her squad played well in the field.
"Our defense played very well
under the conditions," Papa said.
"Both teams had to play under the
same conditions, but I think we
handled it well. Under the conditions,
I'm very happy with the win."

it softball win
Ross was the offensive spark North
Carolina needed. A Turnersville, N.J.
native who also played field hockey
for the Tar Heels, Ross got on base
in all three plate appearances and
scored both of UNC's runs. Ross
drew two walks in the game and also
reached base on an error.
Her second base on balls, with one
out in the sixth and the game tied,
started the Tar Heels winning rally.
Brower sacrificed Ross to second to
bring up senior co-captain Tracey
Beine. Perhaps concentrating too
much on the Tar Heel third baseman,
Greyhound pitcher Ann Gibbons
gave Ross a big lead, and the Tar
Heel's DH took off for third.
Assumption catcher Ann Mclner
ney sent the possible peg of Ross into
left field, allowing Ross to trot home
with the winning run.
Ross believed the victory boosted
her squad's spirits after winning only
one of two versus the Paladins.
"The win today brought us up from
the loss the other day to Furman,"
Ross said. "But we still have a lot
of work to do. We didn't hit very
well at all today. I'm just happy, like j
she (Papa) said, it wasn't a very good
win,' but it was still a win." ' !
Ross' hustle and smarts on the
basepaths enabled the Tar Heels to
score first in the bottom of the fourth.
