Freshman infielder Blake Allemand moves to third base after a stint at second.

The Battalion Through the first seven games of the year, the No. 10 Texas A&M baseball team committed just one error, good for one of the top marks in the country. But Feb. 28’s matchup against Northwestern State kickstarted a rash of sloppy play as the Aggies went on to commit 22 errors during the next 11 games, causing the team’s fielding percentage to dip to a pedestrian .968. The unsightly trend carried into the Big 12 season opener against Kansas State, when the team committed three more miscues against the Wildcats in an eventual 12-15 loss. The lowlight of the slump was senior third baseman Matt Juengel’s misthrow to

And, if you don’t make it, everybody on the sidelines gets to see a good crash.” Norton said the team is open to all students — even those who have never water skied. “We have people who have never even See Waterski on page 2

Aggies respond to death of Florida teen Barrett House The Battalion

On Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla., 28 yearold George Zimmerman, captain of his neighborhood watch, allegedly took it upon himself to approach a “suspicious looking” 17 year-old, Trayvon Martin. The events that ensued have sparked a nationwide outcry that justice is done. In an attempt to spread awareness of the death of Martin at the hands of Zimmerman, students have been placing Skittles on the statue of Lawrence Sullivan Ross. Why Skittles? Martin was armed with nothing more than Skittles and iced tea, which he had just bought at a convenience store. The Skittles, along with the hoodie Martin was wearing, have become symbols of the event, prompting national action like the Million Hoodie March in New York City. Sophomore political science major Aja Holston has been one of the students involved in spreading the news on campus. While there are many issues surrounding the case, Holston said she, along with other minority students, recognize the racial aspect, causing them to act. On Wednesday night Holston and others held a candle light vigil for Martin and other victims. “We decided to call it the Black

She joined the A&M team because of her love for the sport. Cash said those who are interested should look into the team. “You should really come and join. It’s a really fun sport, and we can definitely teach you,� Cash said. “We do a bunch of social events too, and you get to come hang out on a boat.� Members of the team said they are looking forward to the tournament and the level of competition the other schools bring.

Youth Vigil because Trayvon Martin isn’t the first black man to die senselessly, and he won’t be the last. So we wanted to honor those who have fallen,� Holston said. Holston said it’s important to get Aggies involved, hence putting Skittles on the Sul Ross statue. While Holston said she focuses on the racial aspect, she said this event should be of wide-scale importance. “Some people have shied away from this case because they feel like it’s a black-white component,� Holston said. “It’s something everyone should be involved with. The fight is against the system that has protected [Zimmerman] and the institution that is going to protect people like that.� Others issues surrounding the case include some recently changed legislation in Florida that gave its citizens the right to defend themselves, as opposed to just attempting to escape from danger. In 2004, “Stand Your Ground� was passed, and it said that, in a dangerous situation, a citizen could stand and meet force with force. Joe Ura, assistant professor of political science, said Texas has a similar law — the Castle Doctrine — but differs in where a citizen can practice this right. “In Flordia it doesn’t matter where you are in terms of what your rights are for defending yourself,� Ura said. “In Texas you have many more rights if you’re in your home or on your

We have some people who have skied since they were in their early childhood and can compete well with everybody,� Pantel said. “We have others who are out there to enjoy the sun and have fun.� Pantel said the team is close-knit, but always welcomes new members who want to learn how to water ski or improve on what they already know. “Give it the old college try,� Pantel said. “We’re a really open group to whoever comes out. I’ve only been here for two semesters, and I’m already an officer on the team, and I feel right at home with everybody there.�

property than you do if you’re out in public.� Ura said, according to what he has seen in the media, Zimmerman was wrong in what he did, and shouldn’t be able to claim that he defended himself. “It certainly seems to me he escalated a situation that didn’t need to be escalated. It appears that there is evidence that he was not in fact threatened by the teenager,� Ura said. “And if that in fact is the case, then he is a murderer and not someone who has defended himself.� Ura added that in Texas law, there is a provision that states someone cannot claim selfdefense if they provoke the other person. Students on campus, like sophomore general studies major Shenell Encalarde, said that it is important for Aggies to become aware of what has happened — especially since this case has been handled poorly from the start, Encalarde said. “[Zimmerman] has still not been arrested. The whole situation was wrong in the first place,� Encalarde said. “It seems like even the government has been taken to a whole other level, because it wasn’t taken care of from the beginning in the right manner it should have been.� Encalarde said it’s important for Aggies to unite for the cause of bringing Zimmerman to justice. “We want to unite for social justice and stand up for what we believe in, because, if you fail to stand for anything that you believe in, then you’ll fall for anything,� Encalarde said.

Matt Juengel, third baseman and designated hitter for the Aggies, has a .313 batting average, 21 RBIs and 17 runs scored.

Baseball Continued from page 1

a lot of infielders do, he had a couple bad games in the field, but he’s fine. Blake [Allemand]’s comfortable over there, I’m comfortable at second, and we’ve got a great relationship.” Allemand has made the transition seamlessly, and has yet to record an error while patrolling the hot corner. “I’m just happy to be on the field, so I’ll do whatever they tell me to do,” Allemand said. “Third base is fun. I’m getting more comfortable the more I play there, so it’s not too bad.” This isn’t a typical situation of the senior showing the ropes to the rookie. Allemand won a starting spot early in the season and has started 14 of the team’s 21 games. Arthur, on the other hand, spent the previous three seasons showing up to Olsen Field not knowing if he’d get a chance to play. “My four years here, I’ve been in and out of the lineup — starting one weekend, then there could be two or three weeks where I don’t even see the field,” Arthur said. “It’s taught me to be tough mentally. It’s all about knowing your role on the team and doing what you

can to help us win a championship. And if everyone can have that mindset of being prepared and acting like they’re in the starting lineup every day, then we’ve got a great chance to do well in the postseason.” The roster card changes could have sown discord in the clubhouse of a team that had lost four of its previous five games, but the fact that feathers have remained unruffled showcases the integrity and unity of this tightknit group. “Everybody knows what their job is on our team,” sophomore catcher Troy Stein said. “I know Matty [Juengel] wants to be in the lineup and playing third base, but if our team can be better with Allemand at third and Scott [Arthur] at second, I think he’s very willing to do that.” This weekend’s series against Pepperdine, the first road trip of the season for the Aggies, offers another opportunity to test the roster changing experiment. “They have a good record,” Allemand said. “They’ve had some great wins, and I’m pretty sure they beat Oklahoma twice this year. Coach says it’s a big series for RPI [rating percentage index] purposes, and we’re going there to try to win the series.”
