High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - May 11, 1972, High Point, North Carolina 4�, Hlili Wilt Enterprise thursday May la 1973watts combines Talent and style to run up 10-0 pitching season by Paul Kutz Jack Hinkle is talkative and affable. He is helpful Friendly courteous Etc. A real package of boy scout qualities except that Hinkle is the baseball coach at Ragsdale High and the gregarious Mentor has one drawback he comes on As Strong As a resort chamber of Commerce when the subject of his Tiger team 14-1 is tossed into play. So you see its not easy to pin Hinkle Down on just one individual although hell get to that player if you give him enough time. He a not trying to be difficult. Its just that he a got a lot to be proud of. And Hinkle May be right about his 1972 mid state 3 conference champs one reason la defense. Another is Bat Power. However there looms a statistic above the rest its Loo which attaches itself to one person. A measure of his skill Talent and style. Whatever you want to Call it Southpaw Randall Watts possesses it.

Hinkle gave a Little chuckle when he said Watts size and muttered something about having a Small Ball club but a note of Pride came into his voice when he talked about Vatu accomplishments. A a Watt stays mostly with the fast Ball and the majority of the people hit it on the ground said Hinkle. Quot he has a 2.17 earned run average and pitched a two hitter against Northeast Guilford last Friday to wrap up the conference Watts is also no Slouch As a hitter. A Watts has a .428 batting average which includes four doubles one triple five Home runs and 21 runs batted in. Mike Glover the Catcher has the same batting average Only he has 17 a big so Hinkle said. A shorty Rickman third baseman is .404, and hell go to the majors if nothing happens. He a got six doubles two triples four Home runs and 14 a big a. He a just a Sophomore. And there so and on goes Hinkle. There a Ricky Rickman a Tough shortstop hitting .396 and first baseman John Kearns a a pleasant Ronnie Smith is not to be forgotten at second where he a mishandled the Ball just twice out of 57 times and has scored 19 times and Jimmy Bolding is a Lead off hitter who knows How to a get the walks necessary of a Lead off Hinkle also feels that Bolding is the Best Center fielder in the conference. Anyway the list gets longer and Watts himself is Quick to throw ego out of the Park. A a we be got a Good team to Back me up and our teams batting takes the pressure off a lot a said Watts who added that Glover acts As a second coach. A Mike really helps me out a lot. He keeps my Pace Down in games and he tries to keep my pitches of constant guidance in practice he and Glover go off to the Side and work on pitching for 15-25 minutes. Then the two Tiger ballplayers Bat several rounds and maybe run some. Watts is an obvious Lover of the game a fact that becomes apparent when he talks about How baseball is improving and How Vida Blue deserves every cent the Oakland Pitcher is getting if he a so Good. But professional Ball is not on the Ragsdale seniors mind just yet. There a legion Ball in Greensboro during the summer and possibly College Ball Atter that. A if i done to hear anything from any colleges ill go on to state and try out for the team a Watts said. The Young master at the Mound plans to enter an engineering Field a operations or Industrial a after being influenced by summer construction jobs. But right now its the impressive winning record he is constructing that is going to draw College scouts. Do a i a.
