As ihv spring sports season begins, the baseball team once again begins lh rigorous practice for their sport. Beginning early in March, the hopeful players trained by running around the fieldhouse, and practicing throwing and catching. The prospects for the Rock Island varsity base¬ ball team in the I 965 season were good. The Rocks team was bolstered by returning lettermen (iarv Zimmerman, catcher; Rod J ennings, pitcher; (iary Messmer, pitcher; Ron Dusenberrv, first base; Jim Bevins, pitcher and outfielder; Brian Brunsvold, shortstop; and Gordon Kllingsworth. catcher. During the I 96 4- season, the team was hamper¬ ed by the bad weather. Rain and wet grounds rail- celled many games and postponed practices. This was one of tin facts accounting for the losing J-8 record of the team. The Rocks toughest opponents during the spring season were Rock Island Alleman, which placed fourth in the state last season, and the two Cedar Rapids teams, Washington and Jefferson. 228 BASEBALL
