And before Monday's doubleheader with visit- ing Charleston. little hall (:one right fi)r Ill(' Ranis But with a ales! favorable late- season sche(lu]e now that the Rams have disposed ef Charleston. 5-1 and 15-5. cou|d their be a climb back to not only respectability hut also contention in the conf~,rence? There was a comatose 12-19 record that had its misery com- pounded by a 3-10 conference mark. But that was betbre Charles- ton. actually in the hunt for a Southern I)ivision playoff spot, crept into Shepherds)own. But now the Rams are a dis- guised 5-10 in the league. And that record is not as bedraggled as it might seem, That's because no team in that part of the WVIAC has anything (:lose to the sort of talent it takes to I)e a eensistent winner. l)avis & Elkins, Fairmont, and Saleln:I'(:ikyo are the schools that would represent tlmt portion of the con%rence if the season were to end today, None is nluch over .500 or even at the bleak ewm point. Still, there sits Shepherd at five ganles under ,500, Ah, but Shepherd has WVU- Tech left today. And Tech has but two wins in the league afl, e,r suffer- mg through a winless season in 1999. The Rams finish their season against Bluefield, and the Big Blues are also wit]lout much sub- stance and have been in tatters in t)aseball for st)me years. Sweeps of doubleheaders with those teams would give Shepherd a 9-10 league mark Not impossit)le considering how mundane those two teams have usually been. Shepherd's ot her conferenct; flu' is Fairmont. and the Fah'ons phly in Shepherdstown on Sat urday al, 1 p.m. A split with the Falcons might doom Shepherd's postseason chances A doubleheader loss is ('m)se for black pal)t'r tl) he un- filrled the third t,ase d11~o11~ al Fairfax Field. f:lut should Shepherd h.vel both Tech and Bluefield. it's chances--- after looking to be. lower than the New York Giants hopes m 1951 when they trailed the Brooklyn Dodgers by 13 1/2 games on August 15---are then thr from remote. The Giants beat the I)odgers on Bobby Thomson's "Shot Heard Round the World" . . and won the National League pennant. Shepherd's barely moving body of hope was revived by, first, sen(or pitcher Ty Hart who clipped the wings of the Golden Eagles with five innings of three-hi( pitchine that included nary an earnt:d run. ttart won his third game this frazzled Shepherd season. That third wm gave him the career wins record at Shepherd with a total of 23. Trevor Forsl)ey and ,lason Walter completed Hart's winning etching . . . afl, er the senior left, on the crest of a 5-1 lead. Getting Hart the necessary runs were the RBI singles of Chris Matthias and Kevin Kendro and a Mountaineers Football West Virginia's All-Time Con> mittee has selected 26 fl)rmer Mountaineer football players as members of the school's all-tiine team fi)r the 1990s.

In his two in- nings of struggle, he was victnfiz(,d })v ~t honler aud f;OUF r'llI1S in all. But nl,body will remember any of that in the aft.ernt,'ltl~ ot Shep/terd's 15-5 win. Forshey was forced to hit fl)r himself when he was inserted inte the game in the spot in the battin~ order where Todd Roherts had left fi)r a pinch hitter, Forshey strode confidently Io (he plate with runners saturatin~ the bases and the game still very much in doubt. Tile sweet "ping" of Forshey's nletal bat sent a sizzling grounder <)fl'the body of the Charleston third l)asenlan. Fi)rshey's single phlted a run, giving the Rams a 9=:3 lead in the fifl,h liming. In years to come, the Shepherd win will be. in the mists of tile minds of those that witnessed a piteher batting tor himself and get- ting an important hit. But Fershey's 1.000 batting av- erage will be remembered as if it happen ed yesterday Shepherd needed Forshey's hi( as well as the other 15 safeties it managed off three Charh, st,n pitchers. It. was)f) until a sixth inning that included seven base runners and six runs that anybody respired anything but nervous breaths on the Shepherd sideline.
