Transcript Pitcher Wayne Hill, below, takes a mighty cut at a fast ball. Bottom, All-American outfielder Tom Paciorek, follows through on a line drive base hit to left field. Marty McVey receives a winner's welcome after hitting a home run, left. Right, Wayne Hill reaches back to get that little extra on his blazing fastball. Diamond Nine Down at Season's Half; Finish Strong; Win Last Eight in a Row 190 Cougar teams make hay rain or shine in football and basketball seasons, but when baseball time rolls around they have to fight the elements. Rain and cold played havoc with scheduled games, but the biggest problem was no home field. By the time the new field was ready for play, the Coogs were pressing to better a poor 3-7 record. Then Pershing, from Nebraska, rocked the team by taking four out of five games and disaster looked eminent. Houston was playing with five and six new starters, making costly mistakes and not hitting. The only plus for the Coogs was pitching, but four wins, 11 loses and one tie did not paint a rosy picture for the 16 games left. As the weather cleared, so did Houston's hitting woes. Paciorek, Rose, Sparkman, Westphal and Williams began to make things happen at bat and on the field. With the hitting support behind them, Houston pitchers were tougher. Wayne Hill, Satcher, Topping and Post kept the opposition at bay. The season was not a total loss, 5-6-1, as the Big Red finished with eight wins in a row to set a school record—and six starters returning next year. 191
