Transcript Baseball 1984 Although the Cougar Baseball team was not able to match the record setting 43 wins of the previous year's squad, they still managed to win over 30 games for the fourth year in a row. Head coach Rolan Walton's diamond men finished the year with 32 wins in 55 outings and a respectable .582 winning percentage. This team continued a growing tradition of beating up on non- conference foes; however, its much improved conference opponents were not as cooperative. Houston opened the season with 18 victories in its first 23 starts and finished with a non- conference record of 26 wins and 8 losses. Unfortunately, their conference record was a miserable 6-15. Traditionally, the SWC has been a three-horse race with Texas usually head and shoulders above the rest of the herd. This year was no exception. An erratic but talented Rice team spent most of the season in the top 20, but never lived up to their pre-season billing as a favorite to win the conference. Houston did manage to win five of their last nine conference ball games after a dismal 1-11 start. In defense of the Cougars, it must be noted that they only had one returning starting pitcher and that they lost several star underclassmen to the major league draft. Infielder Mark Grimes led the team in hitting with a .340 mark. Grimes and Riley Epps led in four baggers with 6 apiece. Grimes also cranked out 31 RBI's and slugged .556 to lead the Coogs in those categories. Catcher Riley Epps and Outfielder John Altobelli led the team in stolen bases. Altobelli was the only player to play in all 55 games. Ed Clark, a junior righthander, led the team with 6 wins. The Coogs will be lose nine player this year to graduation: Dan Larson, Mike Boaz, Mark Massey, Mark Grimes, Stuart Stauffacher, Greg Brinkman, Riley Epps, Trey South, and Dale Oliver. — Jim Bradley A Who threw the ball. Perfect balance. A 144 — Houstonian
