'. :: 1 n. " By Phil Hertz

The Detroit Tigers...
waiting for Denny
Getting off to a good start is especially important for a
team that has dreams of winning a pennant, but it is more than
important for the 1970 Detroit Tigers, it is essential.
With Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn's decision to allow
Tiger ace Denny McLain to pitch during the second half of the
season, the Tigers now realize that if they are able to stay close,
to the top of the American League's Eastern Division, then
McLain's July entry into the baseball picture could spell the dif-
ference between another dismal summer in the Motor City and
a repeat of the euphoria of 1968.
So far this spring the Tigers have compiled one of the worst
6 spring records (although there has been a, recent upsurge). The
reason for the atrocious start has been traced to the Denny
McLain scandal; however, that can not be the entire story, since
McLain would be pitching no more than three times every two
weeks. Mayo Smith has attributed his team's poor play to a lack
of pride. In all probability it has been due to a lack of confidence
on the part of the team's individuals.
The realization that McLain will be available to the team
this summer must provide a great lift to the team's morale. The
absence of belief in their ability to win the pennant had been
in the heart of every Tiger in Florida. The Tigers refused to
concede openly that they felt their chances for a division cham-
pionship had dimmed considerably, but when you lose a guy who
has won 56 games over a two year span, it has got to take a toll
-no matter how unpopular the individual concerned is or was.
The Tigers' pennant hopes have, of course, been given a big
boost, but the team must not be too dependent on McLain's re-
turn or when July rolls around a super effort by Dennis the
Menace will not be enough to save the Tigers. Ironically if the
Tigers could- convince themselves of the fact, they could make
a run at the pennant even without McLain. A look at the per-
sonnel of the teams in the American League's Eastern Division
will reveal this.
Offensively the Tigers are potentially the strongest team in
the division-their outfield of Jim Northrup, Willie Horton, Al
Kaline (who may also see action at first), and Mickey Stanley is
deep and, if not unequaled, certainly it is unsurpassed. Catcher
Bill Freehan, despite a subpar 1969 season, is still the best at his
position in the America League. The gTiger infield though pos-
sessing weaknesses, is still strong. Norm Cash does the job at
first, Dick McAuliffe is an All-Star when healthy at second, and
Don Wert is more than adequate at third. Shortstop CesarGutier-
rez is unproven (and an infielder discarded by the San Francisco
Giants has to be treated with ani inordinate amount of scep-
ticism), but should be able to do the job, at least defensively.
THE TIGERS will have no dearth of depth in the team. As
things stand now, the Tigers have four outfielders for three
positions indicating one will be available for spot duty at all
times. In addition, the Tigers have Jim Price to back up Free-
han behind the plate, and Price could probably start for half the
teams in the American League.
Without McLain the Tigers do have one weakness-pitching.
Mickey Lolich has never wo'n 20 games, but he is a proven win-
ner. Earl Wilson is also a capable hurler and Joe Niekro, ac-
quired from San Diego, was impressive last season. Mike Kil-
kenny finished strong last season so the Tigers should be able to
put together a more than adequate starting four; however, the
bullpen is weak and there is not an exiguous amount of reserve
pitching.
THE PITCHING may not be strong, but it is not any worse
than the situation at Boston. The Red Sox, however, are actively
talking pennant this season. Boston has a great many pitchers
who have had good seasons, but the pitchers have not been able
to put together the good years in the same season. Offensively
the Red Sox have considerable strength but they are not any
more imposing than the Tigers, thus it is hard to figure out
why the Red Sox are contenders and the Tigers 'are not.
Of course, the biggest competition for both the Tigers and
the Red Sox are the defending American League Champions
Baltimore Orioles. The Oriole pitching staff of Dave McNally,
Jim Palmer and Mike Cuellar surpasses both the Tigers and Red
Sox hurling staffs, but offensively the Orioles are not any
stronger and, in fact, may be a trifle weaker. Last year every-
thing went right for Baltimore - and it could happen again
this year, but Baltimore is far from invincible, and with a little
luck the Tigers or the Red Sox could take the title, and, for that
matter,; so could Cleveland, New York or Washington.
. All this is not to say that Detroit is going to win the pen-
nant. The Tigers are undoubtedly inferior to Baltimore on paper,
with or without McLain, but given a couple of breaks, the Tigers
should have no trouble making a pennant run-if they can con-
vince themselves they can win without McLain.

PHILADELPHIA - Michigan'
successfully defended its National
Collgeiate Athletic Association
trampoline championship yester-,
day, by edging the University of
New Mexico 26.85-26.4. George
Huntzicker, Chris Kene, Tim
Wright all moved into the in-
dividual finals, as they placed
among the top eight in the tour-
nament.
In other action yesterday team
captain, Ron Rapper grabbed the
lead in the parallel bars competi-
tion that he won last year by scor-
ing 9.5 in the compulsories. He
performed an optional routine
yesterday, after which the top six
competitors move into the finals
tonight.
Only two other Wolverines per-
formed in yesterday's compulsor-
les. Sophomore Ted Marti posted
an 8.1 in the horizontal bars to
place him well down the list in
that event. Ric Mcurdy, com-
peting in the all-around, found
himself in eighth with a 49.25
total.
Michigan's other all-arounder,
Sid Jensen, decided to forego the
compulsories both in the all-
around and the specialty events
;s for which he qualified. He will
however, compete in team phase
of the meet.
The big man yesterday was
Washington's 5-5 Yoshy Hayasaki,
who took a lead in the all-around
over teammateHide Umeshita.

Hayasaki, who finished second two
years ago, also leads in three
events, one of which - floor ex-
ercise -- he did not even qualify
for individual competition. He is
also second behind Rapper in the
parallel bars.
The Husky star was not entire-
ly satisfied with his performance,
which saw a poor 8.15 score in

vaulting. He feels that he will win
if he performs up to capability
through the rest of the meet.
None of yesterday's scores count
toward" the team competition,
which begins today with the pre-
liminaries. The top three teams
will then move into tomorrow's
finals, where the new champion
will be decided.

meet three weeks ago with a time
} of 7:28.3 and their only likely
competition will come from Wis-
consin if the Badgers decide to go
with their top four half-milers.
Otherwise, Michigan will show its
traditional strength in the two-
mile relay.
Another strong event for the
Wolverines is the 440-yard relay.
Although this combination of Sol
Espie, Godfrey Murray, Trevor
Matthews and Gene Brown have
never run in a relay together be-
fore, they have plenty of speed to,
burn. Brown is the fastest of the
four with a best 100-yard dash
time of :09.5, while Espie is the
'slowest' with a personal best of
:09.8.
Two other strong relays which
Michigan has to offer are the
four-mile relay and t h e sprint
medley. In the four-mile relay,
Armstrong a n d Storrey will be
joined by teammates Ken How,
