promise in coach’s first year
By Adam Klinker
A new coach for the first time in
20 years, 19 returning lettermen and
nine returning starters helped the
Nebraska baseball team post a win
ning record for the 1998 season.
Under new coach Dave Van
Horn, the Comhuskers finished 24
20, including a 10-13 record in Big.
12 conference play. The Huskers
also compiled a .13-4 home record at
Buck Beltzer Field.
“It’s not a great record,” Van
Horn said, “but I think (players and
coaches) can be proud of what
they’ve accomplished. We compet
Van Horn, who took over for
Coach John Sanders on January 8,
came in just 39 days before the sea
son opener at Minnesota. Van Horn
came to NU from Northwestern
Louisiana State, where he was 106
65 as the Demon’s skipper from
“It was a long-awaited change,”
shortstop Bryan Schmidt said. “We
were all anxious to get someone new
to the program.”
Senior catcher Andy Sawyers
echoed Schmidt’s sentiments.
“I think the transition went real
ly well,” said Sawyers, who started
in 17 games. “With the new coaches
coming in, we could tell the pro
gram was going to turn right
Both Sawyers and Schmidt
agreed that Van Horn put more
stress on pitching, defense and fun
“We did the little things every
day,” Schmidt said. “It got boring at
times, but it won us some games.”
The turnaround was evident in
several key Husker wins this season.
Tor the first time since 1987, the
Huskers swept conference rival and
perennial powerhouse Oklahoma, in
a three game series at Buck Beltzer
Stadium. It was also the first confer
ence sweep by NU since 1994.
The NU squad also swept
Wisconsin-Milwaukee in a three
game series at the beginning of the
season for Van Horn’s first victories
as Husker head coach.
Another high for the Huskers
was winning the championship at
the Hawaii Rainbow Easter
Tournament in Honolulu. NU went
5-2 in tournament play and beat host
team Hawaii 2-1 for the champi
It was a long
awaited change. We
were all anxious to
get someone new to
the program ”
“We played flat out better base
ball than we have in the past,”
Sawyers said. “We were light years
ahead of last year’s team.”
The 10 wins in conference play
were a school record and helped NU
earn a seventh-place finish in the
Big 12, six games away from mak
ing the conference tournament.
Looking ahead to the 1999 sea
son, Van Horn said he expects to see
a great deal more out of his ballclub
after the turnaround in 1998.
“We’ve got to make a run at it,”
Van Horn said. “I think we can be a
better team in 1999.”
