Fisher Holds
Outside Drill
For Fielders
Capitalizing on the weather-
man's gift of a few dry hours,
Coach Ray Fisher took some of his
baseball players outdoors for a
short, but much sought after drill
session yesterday afternoon.
Fisher who has been hoping

the season starts worked seven
outfielders on fly balls and had a
few of the "infielders playing a

in other positions.
Fancett, a senior, has looked
well in practice both as a pitch-
