This is a healthy discussion among a few of us who all happen to be
passionate Wofford baseball fans. There are not many of us. Being
200 miles away I certainly am not qualified to say where the root of
our problem lies but I am haunted by the fact that, according to the
figures from last year on another post, Wofford spent more on base-
ball than four other SoCon schools. Maybe our conditioning and hand-
ling of pitchers is not what it should be.
Be that as it may, we appear to need more scholarships and the big
donors like Russell King and the late Walt Sessoms have done more
than their share. Just as Richardson, Wile, and Chandler are bailing
us out in football, I believe it will take some affluent alumni to do the
same for baseball. Someone needs to win the lottery.
