Our hitting is good, the fielding
fair and the pitching weak, Base
ball Coach Tony Sharpe said in a
Nebraskan interview Tuesday.
Victors in fiye of six starts on its
southern baseball swing, Sharpe
said he "was very pleased" with
the stick work of the NU nine
which unleashed a 79-hit barrage
for an average of 13 hits and 11
runs a game.
Weak Opponent Pitching
Earlier in the year Sharpe had
commented that this team "was
one of the weakest hitting aggre
gations" he'd ever coached. Sharpe
warned, however, that a warm
streak at the plate and weak pitch
ing had contributed to the current
Sharpe commented that the pitch
ing hurt the team most. Some of
the boys were throwing with tired
arms, he said, and they just didn't
have the control. "That will prob
ably trouble, us for some time."
Third Sacker Don Brown paced
the NU hitters with a robust .560
mark. Included in his mark were
two homers and nine RBI's. Jim
Cederdahl and Bill Giles also hit
for high marks, Cederdahl with a
.462 average and Giles with a .423
mark. Nebraska's hitters banned
out at least 10 hits in all but one
game. In the Texas series, thev
blasted out 38 hits and 34 runs.
As the season moves into confer
ence competition, Sharp feels Mis
souri is the team to beat with Ok
lahoma a close second. The rest
of the league will be a battle. The
Tigers only lost a first baseman
and shortstop from the crew that
copped the UCAA honors last year.
The Huskers will face the Kansas
State Wildcats at Manhattan Fri
dau and Saturday. Sharpe said the
Wildcats have pretty much of a
new team and he didn't know how
tough they would be. He added that
the Kansans had taken the last
three out of four games played
on their diamond.
Sharpe said Fran Hofmaier
would probably start against the
Wildcats on Friday afternoon. Ha
indicated Roger Bottorff (2-0)
would see plenty of action, very
