There are two purposes to fall
baseball practice, according to
Coach Milbry "Moby" Benedict:
1) to review the fundamentals-
sliding, the double play, leads and
breaks, etc., and 2) to see what
progress has been made over the
summer by boys who had an op-
portunity to play in a summer
league. It is also a chance for the
coaches to reevaluate the varsity
squad and to see what specific
areas will require strengthening
or rebuilding.

ville, Michigan. Both are promis-
ing sophomores who saw action on
the freshman team last season.
This year's team will have a
greater need for strength in the
pitching department than last
year's, for doubleheaders have
been scheduled on both Fridays
and Saturdays. - Cramping the
schedule in this fashion requires
the addition of a third strong
pitcher and a reliever.

Fall practice has shown that the
pitching staff and the outfield are
the parts of the 1968 squad which
have been most affected by grad-
uation. But the overall outlook is
bright. Despite the loss of seven
fine players, twelve lettermen re-
turn from last year's squad, which
finished second in the Big Ten,
recording ten wins against four
Hurling Hurting?
Although graduation robbed
Michigan of three fine pitchers--
Jim Lyijynen, Bill Zepp and Joe
Kerr-threerreturning lettermen
and two sophomore pitchers are
out for fall practice.
Top pitching prospects on the
squad this year include Geoff
Zahn, a senior southpaw from
Athens, Ohio, Larry Guidi, a sen-
ior righthander from Oroton Falls,
New York, and Jack Hurley, a
righthanded junior from Staten
Island, New York.
Last year Zahn tied an all-time
Michigan record of nine wins
against one loss. His performance
earned him a berth on the second
All-Big Ten team.
Larry Guidi, a very successful
reliever for the squad last season,
will be a starter for the team this
year. Jack Hurley, who saw only
limited action last season will also
play an important role for the
Additions to the pitching staff
include Gerry Christman, a south-
paw from Deshler, Ohio and Steve


the catching duties next season.
He will be assisted by John Kraft,
a junior from Farmington, Pete
Totone, a junior transfer from
Tucson, Arizona and sophomore
Mark Henry from Fort Wayne,
Indiana. Kraft also may see action
in the outfield.
Totone played against Michigan
last season while the Wolverines
were in Arizona for spring prac-
tice. However, he will be eligible
immediately since he played for a
junior college.
Henry, who played both frosh
basketball and baseball is con-
sidered "a steady player who uses
his head." He will be a strong
backup for Nelson.
The infield is the strongest part
of the team. Although damaged
by the graduation of second base-
man Rick Sygar, it will have three
regulars returning. In fact, most
of them are only juniors.
Jim Hoslerl a junior from Ann
Arbor who did an outstanding job
for Michigan last season, will cov-
er first base. Buddy Forsythe, a
junior from Cleveland, Ohio start-

ed at shortstop last season, but
is also being tried out at second
base to fill in the vacancy left
by Sygar. He is a righthanded hit-
ter with excellent speed.
Forsythe has been alternating
positions with j u n i or Chuck
Schmidt, who has shown good
technique at shortstop this fall.
Coach Benedict commented that
"although neither position has
been settled, both boys definitely
figure in our plans."
Jim Rose, a senior from Livonia,
also has a chance to win a position
at second. Another contender is
Clancy Sebula, a sophomore from
Detroit, who saw action with the
frosh squad last season.
Third base will be covered by
junior Glenn Redmon, a right-
handed hitter from Allen Park. He
was the only player to see action
every inning last season and was

Big Ten conferencesecond team.
But Andy's Back ...
The outfield is the weakest part
of the team and will require a
great deal of rebuilding. With
graduation Michigan lost Les Ta-
nona, who was named to the third
Big Ten honor squad, and letter-
men Keith Spicer and Dick Ulh-
Experienced outfield returnees
include Andy Fischer, a senior
from Adrian, and John Arvai, a
junior from Dearborn.
Fisher, a centerfielder, was the
Big Ten batting champ in 1967
with a .459 average, and was nam-
ed -to the first team in the Big
Ten conference. He has been a
starter for two years and "has
done a fine job in pracice this
fall" according to Coach Benedict.
Arvai, a returning letterman,
may see action in either right or
left field.
Another contender is Rich Orr,
a junior transfer from Fort Lau-
derdale, Florida. A lefthanded
hitter "with a good arm, he has
a fine chance of starting" Coach
Benedict commented.
Crystal Ball Cloudy
Elliott Maddox, a sophomore
from Vaux Hall, New Jersey play-
ed third base for the frosh last
season. Coach Benedict described
Maddox as "having good tools,
with excellent speed. He's been
doing a fine job in ball practice
this fall."
John Pink, a Dearborn product,
and Dave Neary of Des Moines,
Iowa, are two promising sopho-
mores that saw action on the
freshman squad last year.
It is too early to make any pre-
dictions regarding the quality of
the 1968 ball club, as scrimmaging
will not start until spring prac-
tice, and not all the players are
out for practice. Injuries have
side-lined a few and only returnees
from last year's squad are partici-
pating in fall practice. Coach
Benedict hopes that, when spring
practice starts, all interested per-
sons will try out for the team.
