Young Whippersnapper Hired to Coach Rice Baseball

I ran across these in the Campus Photographer collection. I think they must be from 1992. That looks like Athletic Director Bobby May with the new hire, Wayne Graham:

Interestingly, the media was out in full force for this event. This is just one of several different camera crews that show up on this contact sheet. I’m not sure but I think the woman with the microphone might be Lisa Malosky, who would have been at KPRC at this time.

He certainly had his work cut out for him, but it’s worked out pretty well so far.

Bonus: Fresh paint inside the RMC phone booths. You can’t be shy around here with your warning signs.

    Rice baseball in the Wayne Graham years has given the university a tremendous amount of positive publicity and national visibility with it’s success. It would be hard to put a precise economic value on it, but it would be very high. Now it time for the other major men’s sports – football and especially basketball – to step up and do the same.

    Coach Graham brought more than wins to Rice Baseball.
    He brought it dignity and respect.

    I have previously thanked him personally.
    I here thank him again in print.
