One- more for Benton Harbor as Garland steals home. Tony Mpgna l,mduU.S that addml 5m.n.h for tht. nu
Claude Willialiis came in second in home runs with two. but each of the hits
were over 400 feet teven Mickey Mantle would have to grunt to do thisl. Pete
Rhodes. who supplied the remaining power in the offensive punch, had fifteen hits
in 44 times at bat for a batting average of 341.
Sam Watson was the big gun on the pitching staff and ended up with a record of
five wins and three losses. Sam's record is actually better than it looks. because he
was used against most of Benton Harboras toughest opponents. Nevertheless. Sam
ended up with a total of 55 strikeouts and also came quite close to pitching a no-
hit. no-run game.
Other Tiger pitchers were Claude Williams with a 2 and 0 record. Pete Rhodes
with a 1 and 1 record. and Eldon DeWitt. who also had a 1 and 1 record.
Some of the returning players who have had some experience last year are: Tony
Belski. Tom Garland, Bob Mahler, Duane Dunbar. Sam Watsoii. Eldon DeWitt. Bill
Umphrey, Tony Megna, and Robert Jorgenson.
The double play is on as Jorgensen tries for two. Coach Johnson and Sam Watson, pitching ace. smile at the

Coach Johnson points out sliding technique, which Coach Burns demonstrates. Watching are:
E. Dewight, C. Williams, K. Leonard, S. Murkey, W. Kelly, D. Dunbar, T. Belski, R. Mahler.
Coach Johnson and Coach Burns were quite proud- of their record of nine wins
and five losses, considering the youth and lack of experience plaguing the team
before the season got under wayg and with a squad that consisted of three freshmen,
six sophomores, five juniors, and only five seniors, they had a right to be.
One of the reasons for the unexpected good season was the exceptional improve-
ment in the hitting department.
Tom Garland, Claude Willianis, and Pete Rhodes accounted for a large percentage
of the Tigers' success with Tom Garland leading the team in homers with three, in
hits with 17. and in batting average with seventeen hits in forty-three times at bat
for a .395 average.
