This week, baseball. by Rick Lomenick Journal Sports Editor Despite losing some players in key positions due to gradua- tion last spring, Perkins-Tryon baseball coach Bobby Buck is pleased with what the future holds for the program. The Demons are winding down their summer scbedule and Buck feels things have gone very well despite not having the repetitions a team would normally have if it were the regular season. "It's hard to get into the rhythm that you get into in springtime," Buck said. The team has played approxi- mately three times a week. However, no  organized prac- tices are held and players get the opportunity to take some batting practice before games. "The way I tell the kids this is like our spring training," he said. "It's our time to try people at different positions, it's a time to try new stuff, and put new faces on the nlound." This isn't just working towards next season and the Demons' attempt for a third straight state baseball tourna- ment appearance. This also includes the future as well. "We try to make sure every- one gets playing time in the summer time ,and just kind of keep in the swing of things and try to get a little bit better for next year," he said of the approximately 24 players on the summer roster. Despite losing several start- ers from last' nalist team, talent he has this level of pla3 very much. "I feel we can go and play with said.
