Ray Tabacchi the Hilltoppers' new coach, batted .354 this summer for Sarasota in the Class D Florida State League. Tabacchi is the former Auburn High School and Southern Illinois University standout. In the minors since 1956 as a second baseman, Tabachi de- cided to take up coaching and the Mount Pulaski baseball-basket- ball job was the upshot. It is doubtful if he will continue to play in the minors since he ad- mits there is now little likeli- hood of reaching the big leagues. Ray, a Kansas City Athletics farmhand, started this season hit 2.41, playing half the season ball at SIU. after graduating from SIU.

And if the shoulder injury hadn't inter- fered, Ray possibly would be only a step or so from the majors. However, from his first few dab,s on the job, Ray thinks he'll enjoy high shool coaching. He was a football, basketball, and track mainstay at Auburn High. At SIU he lettered three years in baseball, being named the team's most valuable player as a junior and senior and serv- ing as captain his senior year. Ray also lettered three years in football and two years in basket- Of that amount $51,000 w_ d be used for a four.claSX. addition to the Harristown,e" mentary school.
