With an even record of three wins and three losses, the Yardling nine coached by Adolph Samborski still faces a difficult fourteen game schedule.
The southern trip during the vacation showed what the team could do in outside games, but the encounters themselves were marred by the inexperience characterizing all pre-season games.
The one game since then, with Belmont Hill last week, showed more than ever the need for improved fielding and a tighter defense. This will probably improve with warmer weather.
Bart Harvey at second and Captain Justin Haley at third are strong at the plate and quick in the infield, while Bill Barnes on first also seems to have found his batting eye. Art Scully, the only batsman to get more than one hit against Belmont Hill, was recently moved to short from third where he has shown ability in handling hot grounders.
Joe Phelan and Bud Waldstein, who have thus far shared the pitching duties, show signs of promise which should materialize when warmer weather irons out their early season kinks.
With Jerry Callanan permanently on the sidelines with an injury, Bob Ax-tell has been moved to catcher from the outfield and in several weeks ought to become accustomed to his new berth.
In spite of four errors in the Belmont Hill game, the outfield should shape up into a strong part of the team. Bill Harrison and either Phelan or Waldstein seem secure, but the third position is still one of the many problems confronting Coach Samborski. Only yesterday he moved Haley out from third, substituting Read at the hot corner.
The team as a whole is still in the indefinite stage and frequent shifts are going on every day. There is power at the bat and in the field, and it is merely a matter of time until it will develop.
