Six Rookies To Start:
Tony Readies Crew For
Reports Baseball Team
Baseball Coach Sharp Tony an
nounced last night that six rookies
will be in the starting lineup this
afternoon as the University of
Nebraska open their campaign
against Drake U. on the Husker
The rookies will form the best
looking infield and battery that
Nebraska has seen in years. All
are beautiful prospects and the
squad is shaping up as the con
ference's No. 1 team of the year.
The main reason for Sharp
Tony's enthusiasm is a young
pitcher from Monoco. The good
looking sophomore Grace Keily
came to Nebraska after being
highly recommended as a curve
ball artist and model. No doubt
sveryooe has heard the cry throW
him the old Kim Novake ball," the
one with all the curves, well this
is Grace's most used pitch. She
also has an excellent fast ball
which she contributes to excellent
form on the mound and every
where also for that matter.
Grace is supposed to arrive in
time to continue to work out for
the rest of the week with Coach
Tony's boys. It is rumored that the
signing of the new star has done
much for the moral of the ball
Joan Maysfield is the catcher.
This blond-headed youngster has
everyone raving about her talent.
She has received a lot of publicity
in the past few months.
The strong arm of the infield
is the rookie Stretch Eckbury from
the Virgin Islands. Stretch is
pegged to start at first base. She is
a bundle of fire. Not only does her
height and form help in pulling
This event was held in front of
the stadium on the flag pole and
drew the largest crowd of the af
ternoon. The only injury sustained during
the meet was by Wood. He re
ceived severe burns sliding back
down the pole.
Other major victories were
scored by Pen Kollard in the two
mile high hurdles, a new event
that was just added this year,
Garry Lauseman and Knale Dotec
down high ones but she maintains,
it also helps her batting average.'
Miss Eckbury is a 6'8", 28-20-26
it helps her batting which was a
rosy .500 last winter when she
played for the Boston Pink Pants
in the Snowqall League.
Miss Eckbury atributes part
of her success to her fellow team
mate the former Mrs. J. DiMaggio
who has been doing an excellent
job at the "hot Corner". Miss Mul
rose has a fine throwing arm,
which she is always throwing
around someone. Marlyn has been
having a little trouble fielding
grounders which Sharp Tony atri
butes to an injury she received
last winter while playing in the
Sandwich League. She was run
over and spiked in the back when
Dick Stuart slid into third on a
very very close play.
The keystone combination on the
squad should also be improved
since the Jones sister enrolled in
school, Patty and Piggy are Mts
on the field as well as off. They
don't believe in baseball practice
and the girls never stay in at
night and get their rest nor do
they ever train. Their time is spent
mostly on dates. Piggy says that
her favorite past time is dancing.
They never have any hours since
they are such brilliant prospects
The girls live in sorority house
and seem to have a way of getting
by with things usually considered
out for college students and especi
ally for athletes.
Both girls are 40-25-38 , and have
a lot of power in their frames.
The outfield will consist of three
lettermen from last year. The well
known "kitten sisters" will hold
