Transcript Baseball Catcher Bill Pruett led the team in batting all season long, but lost out to outfielder Joe Lopasky in the final week. Lopasky, the football halfback of the Cougars, had the top batting average, among regulars, by posting a .313 mark. Pruett, senior from Bellaire, tapered off to a .292 mark. Pruett, a three-year baseball letterman, captured the top individual award by winning the "Cougar Club Award" as the club's most valuable player. Overall, the Cougars had, by far, the most potent pitching crew ever assembled on the campus. Sophomore Tom Wenmoth, on the strength of a great showing in the final few games, ranked as the top hurler. Wenmoth.posted a 6-4 won-lost mark and had an earned-run average of 1.15, one of the tops in collegiate baseball. Senior Jim McGee, the three-year veteran, carded a 5-2 won-lost record and chalked up a 1.94 E.R.A. The other member of Hill's "Big Three" was sophomore Conrad Noessel. Entering the season as one of the finest hurlers in UH history, the 6-3 righthander had a 4-3 won-lost chart and a 3.03 E.R.A. before tapering off in the final games of the season. Blazing fastballer Ron Taylor was the only other UH pitcher to get credit for a victory during the '64 campaign. The five seniors departing from the club were Mike Allen (3.B.), Bob Boeger (O.F.-2.B.), Buzzy Foster (O.F.), McGee and Pruett. OUTFIELDERS: Joe Lopasky, George Berger and Buzz Foster: PITCHERS: Ron Taylor, Jim McGee, Conrad Noessel and Tom Wenmoth.
