The J.V. baseball team got off to a slow start winning only
two of their first eight games. Playing together well, they
finished the season by winning three of their last four games.
Several outstanding pitching performances highlighted the
season, Scott Johnston's 1-O one hitter against Marshall and
Mark Hoisington's 0.85 earned run average and fine season-
ending performance againstJefferson.
The consistent hitting of John Beal, Bill Garlington, Doug
Beeber, Steve Weitzel, Russ Philips and Jim Miller gave the
Techmen a constant offensive punch at the plate. Doug Peake
finished up the last six games at a .500 clip.
. Bill Ranta, was the coach of the 1973 J.V. baseball team

1972 was a season of prospective outlooks as the frosh
baseball squad showed many factors toward the oncoming
years at Tech. Tim Gleason lead the team in batting with a
.423 batting average. McGee. Dodd. Spencer and Gleason
were all recommended for their good sound batting by the
freshmen coach Mr. Vern Melvin. Craig Howe and the other
preceeding three freshmen maintained a solid .350 or better.
As a whole the frosh batters achieved a .297 average. The
freshmen also had sound fielders and should supply the J.V.
and varsity program with continued fine material.
