Coach John Scolinos was standing in front of the visitors' dugout at Hart Park in Orange, arms folded, looking concerned. His Cal Poly Pomona baseball team was down by a run and innings were becoming scarce. He seemed not to hear the wise cracks of the Chapman College fans poking friendly fun at the way he wears a towel around his neck or the way he scoots along, using the short, careful steps of a 69-year-old man with a 42-year-old football injury.

It is great to see Cal Poly Pomona name Chuck Belk as its new baseball coach (Times, Aug. 29). He is an excellent choice, with great knowledge of baseball and a good rapport with his players. Best of all, he will continue the teachings of John Scolinos, who was an important influence on me, as well as hundreds of others who have played at Cal Poly over the years. However, I am somewhat disappointed to see the word "interim" used to describe Belk's promotion. It is very difficult to recruit good talent when the players are unsure how long the coach will be there.

We very much appreciate Tracy Dodds' May 12 article on Cal Poly Pomona baseball coach John Scolinos ("An Old-Fashioned Kind of Coach"). Scolinos, as the winningest active baseball coach, is certainly deserving of the recognition. He has earned it in a long and distinguished career. We would, however, like to set the record straight that Cal Poly is not a "little campus" but one of the largest (1,500 acres) in the California State University with 18,000 students and 2,500 faculty and staff.

Tradition has it that in the California Collegiate Athletic Assn., a standard shoe size will suffice for an earned-run average. On Saturday afternoon, four games into the season, Cal State Northridge and Cal Poly Pomona provided evidence that the idea may be outdated by splitting a doubleheader completed just minutes before rain began to fall on John Scolinos Field in Pomona. This was a day for pitching.
