THE SUMMER GAILY

Y7 CuI IC ny, , 16r

Why ithis girl
Last year at this time Joan wasn't
smiling. She was flunking out of
, college and didn't know where to
turn. And the worst part was that
she really wanted to earn a college
.. degree and she knew that she was
s , capable.
Thomas More College gave Joan a
Second Chance. We have a special
summer program designed just for
students like Joan .. underachieving
students who have experienced serious
academic difficulty or even failure.
It's an intense program of study, test-
<- ing, and counseling conducted by a
specially-trained staff. And the goal
of the program is the student's re-
moval from probation or his or her
readmission to college.,
Joan is a product of Operation Second
S BxChance. She came through with fly
ming colors and is now earning a 3.0
grade pint average at her college.
No wonder she's smiing.

By HERSCHEL NISSENSON
Associated Press Sports Writer
NEW YORK - With all eyes
on the American League's new
designated hitter, one of the ov-
erlooked men in baseball has
been the ninth-place hitter.
Ninth place, the spot eternal-
ly reserved for the worst hitter
on the team whether it's kids
choosing up sides on the sand-
lots or the major leagues.
Ninth place, sure outsville,
the spot where the pitcher hits,
. . . or tries to . . . in the Na-
tional League and where such
unrenowned batsmen as Gene
Michael of the New York Yan-
kees and Eddie Brinkman of the
Detroit Tigers hold forth in the
American.
"BATTING NI NTH
doesn't bother me," insists Mi-
chael, who brought a career
mark of .228 into the 1973 season.
"There's one on every team. As
soon as the designated hitter
rule was passed I knew I'd be
batting ninth."
Michael, who hit .233 while
batting eighth last season, lean-
ed on his current .267 bat during
batting practice at Yankee Sta-
dium and spoke with a sly smile
just loud enough for some of his
teammates to overhear.
"BATTING NINTH
would break some of these guys'
hearts. What would Johnny Cal-
lison or Graig Nettles do? And
these are guys I'm outhitting by
a hundred points or so. Hey.
John, would you like to hit
ninth?">
Callison replied with a look
he might use after hitting into a
triple play, or finding termites
in his favorite bat.
STILL, MICHAEL w o u 1 d
rather bat ninth in front of the
leadoff man than eighth in front

of the pitcher.
"It's tough hitting eighth," he
said. "With the pitcher up next
you never get a chance to drive
in runs with men on base. Bat-
ting ninth, with a good hitter be-
hind me, I may get a few more
pitches to hit."
BEING THE LAST MAN in the
batting order doesn't bother
Brinkman, either.
"When I was batting eighth, I
used to wonder whether the op-
posing pitchers would get cute
with me with my own pitcher up
next and instead they'd challenge
me. I used to psych myself out.
Now I know they're going to
challenge me.
"I've been embarrassed just
about every way you can be
embarrassed in baseball," said
the lifetime .224 hitter. "The only
thing that could embarrass me
any more would be batting ninth
if the pitcher were batting ahead
of me."
