AND WHAT DOES THE PITCHER SEE? Perhaps Harry Pells at bat and Chuck Langrnan ready to catch what could be another strike! Prospective Team Begins Practice in March THE AUTOMATIC PITCHING MACHINE is ready to g “0 —and Mark Cheek, Delbert Davis, Randy Friel, and Mark Anderson post before this “mechanical monster.” RANDY FRIEL PAUSES —to rest his pitching arm, perhaps? —but baseball practice cannot stop, and the batter awaits the ball.

March rolled in to find the Varsity Baseball team making plans for the upcoming 1966 spring season —a season in which they hoped to recapture the District and Regional Championships which were awarded to Rocky players during the 1965 season. The Varsity team from last spring boasted a record of nine wins and seven losses, and refused to allow a scoring advantage until the Sectional finals during the State tournament. Many members of last year’s team have returned to give Coaches Carl Aronson and Jerry Janecke an optimistic outlook toward the ’66 season. Among those returning are: Gordon Ellingsworth, Chuck Langman, Mark Cheek, Harry Pells, and Gary Ben¬ der. Calisthenics, sliding practice, and batting practice in the newly-acquired batting cage were prerequisites for membership on the team- prerequisites which aimed at the formation of a championship team. 236 Baseball
