A solid corps of pitchers composed of Bob Peters, All-American candidate, Jim Wilson and Tom Thomson was backed by a potentially great infield. This infield with Fred Green at first base, James Shirler at second base, Al Campo at shortstop, Bucky Watkins at third base and Pete Stonestreet catching was predicted to be the best Cougar quintet since 1953. An outfield led by Bunky Caldwell and supported by Ross Hopkin. Eddie Mitchamore, Bobby Brezina, Virgil Fisher and Clifton Jubela promised to give this team strength. However, with the first games came even greater misfortune that was to plague the team throughout most of the season and dim the bright prospects. Two top players were badly injured— Pete Stonestreet and Bob Peters—and a losing streak began. Although the jinx lowered spirit, the players did not give up the battle. They kept fighting. Each game brought them a little closer to a win. The eleventh game finally saw the Cougars rewarded. By winning four out of the five remaining games, they showed that they were capable of everything they were predicted to have been. BUNKY CALDWELL Outfield and Catcher Average-.353; RBI—5 336
