All County High Schools
To Field Baseball Teams
TtM Atlantic Pirates, defending'
, county baseball champions, will
have a tough row to hoe this sea
son. All Hve county schools plan
to field teams and all have hopes
(or a county title.
Last year only Atlantic, More
, head City and Smyrna participated
' in the spring sport. Newport and
Beaufort sponsored field and track
At Newport, Coach Bob King will
call bis first practice sessions next
week. The llawks will have few if
any experienced players since they
did not have a team last year.
There is some good material at
1 ' Newport and the Hawks are ex
pected to gVin polish as the season
Coach Norman Clark baa already
begun practice at Morehead City.
The Eagles have practically tbe
lame team as last year plus some
good freshman prospects.
Hugh Gordon will be at the helm
of the Beaufort nine. He says there
is a wealth of material in the Sea
i dog roeter. He figures that tbe Sea
dogs will be tough to handle despite
their lack of experience.
A group of scrappy freshmen
will nove into the Smyrna baseball
roster to give tbe Blue Devils a
fighting team that may surprise
some of the fans around the
Coach Norman Chadwick has
prospects of getting 9ome of the
best pitching in tbe county from a
couple of youngsters who may de
, velop in a hurry once they get
' some experience under their belts.
Atlantic Coach Roy Cockerham
is looking desperately for a pitcher
to fill the shoes of his ace. Butch
Saunders, who was the top mounds
man in the county last' year.
Baseball players get an early
start in Atlantic, though, and some
of the freshmen going out for the
> squad may be the answer to the
' roach's prayers.
From all sides it seems that
baseball is making a determined
comeback in the county. Potential
major leaguers are usually first
spotted in high school ball, so this
may be the year that some county
boy gets his chance to move Into
It ii true enough that many fel
lows who play for tbe smaller
tchoolj will never be ballplayers,
but competitive sports teach les
' sons that can be learned nowhere
