FEBRUARY 27, 1973
New Baseball Coach
After being out of baseball
with the exception of six games
last year the Montreat-Anderson
Cavailers got back into action
under new head coach, !ir. Lenn
Stranak. Coach Stranak eehtess
Montreat under rough circiunstanca
having not been able to pick his
players out of high school. Mr.
Stranak comes to tiontreat aftgr
attending Murray College in Tens
nessee and then doing ggraduabe
work at the University of
Kentucky. He was also a boy
scout' for the Montreal Expos. He
has been in organized baseball
for,a,eventeen years. His coaching
ability should help the team tre-
mendosly. After chewing the fat
a while we got down to talking
When asked about whhttbrought
him to Montreat the coach said
that since the post was ’.■vacant
and the college was small he
decided to come to Montreat i. He
likes the surroundings at Montreat
and the people here.
When asked about the season's
outlook the coach replied that it
was too early to tell. "The team
hustles veiTy well and the attitude
is good. It is too earlj to tell
until we get under game like con
ditions outside. V7e have 25 bOyS
competing for nine positions, so
there is a very good competitive
spirit on the prectice field.
"Going aroiind the diamon the
Cavailers have two good candidates
for catcher in Bill Rutledge and
Craig Pipkin. We have very strong
arms in the outfield and very
quick alert infielders. We should
have good personnel at all
positions on the field. Our pitch
ing staff includes Rusty Caudill.
Mike Zinn, Louis Raines ,
Cooper, and Fuss Seymour. These
bOy s are not our only pitchers,
but they are the ones that are
shaping up well for us now.
As to the comnetition in the
conference Coach Stranaks said
that Andersqn, ’'Mltchftll and
Spartanburg should be the teams
to beat. Mitchell is our first
game and we hope to catch them
off guard. They play a 55 game
schedule and they are rated Tth
in the nation. Spartanburg has a
new coach and I don't know muchf
about them. Anderson is always
tough. Our season starts March 20
and goes through April 28. I
would like this opportunity to
ask for the support of the
faculty, the adimiatration, and
Our mighty Cavaliers in action
Human beings sr>end about one-
third of their lives asleep.
Emmanuel Udogu and Marl-, Turn-
ner both made All-Region In rep
resentation of Montreat-Anderson.
Emmanuel was put up for All-Amer
ican, but the team's overal re
cord kept him from being eligible.
Both of these men deserve recog
nition from the student body for
a job wel1 done.
