There's Harris, Bradley and Peacock — usual suspects. Further down, a legal- sounding trio dusts up in the form of Vernon, White and Chapin. Lastly, there's Howard, the starting point guard and Seales, the sopho- more new guy. He's offset by Moody, who's been around a while — but then again, it seems like they all have. Through spot-duty and then some last season, the group picked up valuable experience while helping Rosewood compile a 16-9 record and make its seventh consecutive appearance in the N.C. High School Athletic Association 1-A playoffs. But this spring, the outfit could very well be your Carolina 1-A night- mare — especially as live arms across the state will be appraised, catego- rized and verified by a new metric system. Thinking of maxing out early in the cam- paign? Be careful. An outing of 105 pitches gets its author two things — a chance to finish the bat- ter he's facing, followed by a four-day spell of lux- urious dugout R&R. But there's more — a lot more. An effort of 76 pearls or more also requires four days of rest, while a start in the neighborhood of 61-75 aspirin earns the hilltopper in question a three-day weekend. Any outing falling between 46-60 heaves requires two days off, while set-up men, reliev- ers and utility types who sling 31-45 pitches in a given contest must file one day's rest. Completing the N.C. High School Athletic Association's slide rule is a low-point threshold of 31 pitches, which carries with it no designated rest period — as long as the pitcher does not cross it. Got it? Good. Simply put, the game has changed — but these Eagles, a year older, wiser and deeper under skipper Jason King, are ready for the new calcu- lus of life on the cliff. "We're in a very fortu- nate spot," King noted. "We have a lot of guys that can pitch… who have done it for a while, with good experience — that we feel can give us a The 'King's' men are all on call ■ Rosewood coach and staff prepared to handle new manda- tory pitch count this season.
