The opening of the 1954 spring athletic season
found a newly formed 6'B,7 baseball team, com-
posed entirely of sophomores, striving hard for
perfection on the diamond. The coming of a new
team brought a new man to join Normandy's fine
coaching staff. Mr. Cuffey, physical education
teacher from Washington Elementary School, was
chosen to guide the junior team.
Among the boys who showed special interest and
who tried hard to become better players were Don
Mahaffey, first baseg Bill Roberts, catcherg ,lim
Willenberg. pitcherg and Bob Foster, alternate
pitcher and shortstop.
At the time the Saga went to press, the "Bw Vik-
ings had played five of their ten-game schedule.
They had a record of two wins and three losses.
They got off to a slow start by losing their first
three games-University City, 4-2g John Burroughs,
9-Og and Country Day, 8-6. In the next game, how-
ever, they trounced Ladue. I5-l. and then forced
Maplewood to bow to them, 8-6.
