Transcript Second baseman Ronny Baker awaits his turn at bat during the Astrodome-based double header with Texas. Bat Strength Propels Coogs to Season Win Mark and NCAA Bid Hitting proved the key to success as the UH baseball team established a new record for season wins by gaining 18 victories against I I defeats. Ike Lucas, the most consistent Cougar at the plate, hit .406 for the regular season, a new school mark. Not a power hitter, Lucas gained NCAA District Six All- America honors by poking singles past the opposition. Erstwhile footballers Tom Paciorek and Kenny Hebert gave the baseball team needed power. Both hit over .300 for the season and ranked as the team's leading run producers. Pitching was a pre-season if, but the Coogs usually managed enough runs to stay ahead of the competition. When the contests were close, Jim Borski, the Cougar's most active pitcher, proved the ablest, compiling a five and two won-lost record. At the end of the regular season the tearr) received an NCAA Tournament bid and was matched against Texas University in a best two of three series. Rain delayed the first game at Texas, then a deluge shortened the second game at a 4-4 deadlock in the seventh inning. The next day, the Cougars beat Texas by a score of 5 to 4 to go ahead in the series. Gray skies threatened further postponement, but the teams were allowed the use of Houston's famed Astrodome to finish the series. Inside the weather-proof Dome, Texas swept both sides of a double header to advance to the College World Series, leaving UH the loser in the first college baseball contest held indoors. 172
