before graduating from that school in
1943. He boasts a little of having
once pitched a no-hit game in an in-
I dependent league organized in the
r Ayden section.
' Now a sophomore, Little plans to
■continue his studies at East Carolina
■until he graduates. He is majoring
' in physical education and plans to
! follow a coaching career.
!!, The 1946 Pirate nine saw Little
showing his stuff for the first time
at East Carolina. Strike-out king of
the Pirates, he blazed third strikes
by 19 befuddled Oak Rjdgers in one
of his best performances last season.
In his first outing this year, he
i teamed up w ith two other ECTC hurl
ers, to pitch a no-hitter against Guil
ford college. In this game Little
worked three innings, striking out
four. In his second game of this
: season, he was never better, as he
I fanned 19 Little Creek, Va., Amphib
j ians and equalled the mark set last
i year. When not on the mound, Little
is in right field for the East Caro
linians. He is one of the leading hit
ters on the club, posting a 350 batt
ing average for the 1947 season.
Last summer he played semi-pro
i baseball with Edenton and gained
recognition as an outstanding hurler.
He ended the season for Edenton with
a record of 14 wins and four losses.
An ex-Gl, Little spent two years
: in the army. He is married and is
the proud papa of one child.
