Seven conference this season. '
Although the league crown can be won only by hoeing the long
road with consistent good playing void of slumps and injury
plagues, the Huskers appear the team to beat for
Currently swinging their way through a
series of non-conference victories on the road in
the more southern regions, the NU diamondmen
have been featuring impressive play on the
mound, on the field and at the plate. Although
a baseball team's early Indications have no con
crete bearing on its continuance during the heat
of th mid-season's tense battle, we're watching
the Huskers hopefully. They could be the Uni
versity's first conference champs of 1953.
The NU baseball outlook has improved vastly
since the first workouts in February.
Last spring the Scarlet nine completed an
impressive 13-7 season, grabbing second nlaro in
standings, while graduating only three men from the lineup. Sharpe
lost outfielders Bob Diers and Milt Frei and shortstop Ray Mlado
vich. Then starting third sacker Bobby Decker and first baseman
Bill Giles transferred to West Coast schools, leaving Bob Reynolds
as the only returning vet on the infield, and Jerry Dunn as the lone

HARD-HITTING TRIO . . . Nebraska's (left to rifht) Jim Cederdahl. Dennis Korinek and Jerry
Dunn have shown plenty of power at the plate and hustle in the gardens in early season NU base
ball games. Coach Tony Sharpe's Cornhusker diamondmen, currently Journeying the Southlands
and gathering an early string of victories, return to the home field nexi week, but do not open at
home until April 27-28 when they meet the invading Big Seven champs, the Missouri Tigers.
The Nebraska diamond crew
kept its powerful baseball ma
chine in high gear Wednesday as
they kept their unblemished rec
ord intact. After beating Baylor
at Waco, Tex., in the season
opener and then fighting back in
the second game of the twin bill
to gain a tie, the Sharpemen trav
eled to Tulsa, Okla., where they
beat the University of Tulsa, 7-3.
It was somewhat of a combin
ation of a repeat performance for
the hustling Huskers. They had
the same fine hitting and pitching
that they showed in their initial
contest and repeated the same
hustle they exhibited the day be
fore against the Baylor Bears to
break the game wide open.
The spotlight was shared by the
pitching performance of Ray No
vak and the hitting of left fielder
It was Novak's fine pitching
chore that kept the Tulsans score
less the first six innings. Novak
surrendered only three hits in his
six inning stint and mowed down
four Oilers via the strikeout route.
Bob Kremke came on in the
seventh inning to relieve Novak
and yielded two hits in his time
on the mound.
It was rightfielder Gerald Dunn
who broke up a fine pitching bat
tle between Novak and Tulsa's
Moss. Dunn blasted his first home
