Transcript No Publicity America s pastime gets no time hat's the deal with Cougar baseball? Despite it being one of the most successful programs in the state, the UH baseball team gets virtually no publicity. The Cougars are one of the two teams in Texas that have played in the Championship game of the College World Series. Also, only two teams in the state have appeared in the NCAA playoffs more than UH. It wouldn't be such a big deal if this were just some rough, shod, fly- by-night ball club. But, they're not. The 1985 team posted a 44-17 won-loss record; the 1987 team had a 40-24 record and finished fourth in the NCAA regional tournament; in 1989 the Cougars were ranked in the Top 20 for most of the season. In the 1980's the Coogs consistently advanced in the SWC post-season tournament. So, why is the university identified with only the football and basketball programs? Senior pitcher/outfielder Keith Darter had some strong feelings about it. "I feel that the Houston Chronicle and Houston Post ignore us purposely. We're the home team, but they give far more copy to Texas A&M and the University of Texas," 99 This is aggravating because we have just as much talent, or more, than A&M and Texas. 99 said Darter. "It's very aggravating because we have just as much talent, or more, than A&M and Texas." Another problem was the athletic department's budget deficit. Reportedly, only two baseball players were on full scholarships, as compared to 100% of the football team and probably 90% of the basketball team. Game attendance was yet another problem that faced the baseball team. Cougar field can seat approximately 2,250 spectators. At any given home game last year, there were no more than 200 people watching. Most of the time, the number was no higher than 100! Darter and several other players were confident they would do no worse than second in the conference and advance into post-season play. One UH baseball player, who wished to remain anonymous, said, "I believe that if the university was really concerned about the status of baseball, they would exert as much effort promoting it as they do football and basketball. Think about all of the money they spend courting and providing food for the press; they could do the same for this sport." Obviously, the problems the UH baseball program face remain very complex. However, a little publicity for the program would probably lead to solutions in the financial areas. -R.
