Michigan's baseball team will
seek its second victory of the year
today- as it faces the University
of Detroit in the home opener be-
ginning at 3:30 p.m.
Dennis McGinn will be the Wol-
verines' starting pitcher as Coach
Don Lund tries to get his charges
off to a fresh start at Ferry Field.
For the incoming Lund, as well as
sophomore McGinn, this will be
the first effort in front of the
home crowd..
Lund has shifted his starting
lineup about in an attempt to find
the right combination for a suc-
cessful year. The team was dis-
appointing during the spring trip
to Tallahassee, Fla., in which the
'M' squad had a dismal 1-6 record.
Franklin To Open
Lund, who has made many
shifts this year, is planning on
starting Wilbur Franklin in cen-
ter field. He will replace regular
Jack Mogk. The presence of
Franklin is supposed to boost the
slugging potential.
Rounding out the outfield will
be Jim Dickey, a former catcher
in left field and John Halstead in
right.
In the infield will be the two
most potent hitters on the squad,
Dave Brown and Bill Roman.
Brown, who has been considered
for a move to center, will open
the game at his usual third base
position. Brown batted .313 on the
Florida trip. Roman whacked the
ball for a team-leading, .345 av-
eragers andis scheduled to begin
at first base.I
Marshall Replaces Kucher
Gene Struczewski is the start-
ing shortstop and sophomore
Barry Marshall completes the key-
stone duo at second. Marshall has
replaced veteran Bob Kucher in

L I

Gary Mettie will be the Titans'
starting hurler. The sophomore{
left-hander was the wining pitch-
er in the victory over Albion and
is a native of Detroit.
Heading the opposition power.
will be veteran first baseman,
Ronny Klemens. The senior slug-
ger led the team in : batting with'
a .355 average last year.
Dando Also Back
Also returning is veteran right
fielder Bill Dando who hit .327
last season. Both top hitters are
left-handed. Sophomore Art Spag-
nuola 'will be at second base;#
Jerry Buchel at short; and Tom
Condron will begin at third.
Dick Daguanno and Dan Weem-
hoff, returning lettermen, fill out
the outfield in center and left
fields respectively. Catching will
be Jack Jacobs.

f4}
The major league baseball sea-
son gets under way today with two
special preview games at Washing-
ton and Cincinnati.
The Baltimore Orioles, leaders
in the Grapefruit circuit, will bat-
tle the Senators in the Presidential
opener although the Chief Execu-
tive, now on a golfing trip, will not
be present; Vice-President Richard
Nixon will throw out the first ball.
Pedro Ramos (14-18), an open-
ing day winner against Boston
last year, will start for the home
squad. Opposing him will be
Orioles' southpaw Jack Harshman
(12-15). Harshman whipped the
last-place Washington team four
times last year.
Expect 25,000
An estimated 25,000 are expected
to see the American League's ini-
tial contest.
In Cincinnati, the Reds will play
the resurgent Pittsburgh Pirates

in the Queen City's 75th opener. A
traditional festival, the game is
expected to attract a capacity
house of 32,000. Governor Happy
Chandler of Kentucky, former
Baseball Commissioner, will toss
out the first ball.
Bob Purkey (17-11), former
Pirate hurler, will pitch for this
year's power-packed Cincinnatti
squad. The Pirates will start Ron-
nie Kline (13-16). They are saving
their ace pitcher, Bob Friend (22-
14) for the home opener against

Milwaukee tomorrow at Forbes
Field.
Bucs in Contention
The Pirates, for the first time
in many years, are considered
strong pennant contenders. The
Reds, despite doubtful pitching
strength, acquired even more pow-
er in Frank Thomas and should
also be a prominent competitor in
the National League fight.
The other 14 teams wait until
Friday to begin regular competi-
tion.

Two powerhouses of profession-
al sports.-- the Boston Celtics and
the Montreal Canadiens - will
battle tonight towards their re-
spective titles as the final playoff
series advance.
The Celtics need only one more
victory over the Minneapolis Lak-
ers to recapture the National
Basketball Associationchampion-
ship which they held two years
ago.
The Celtics have swept three
straight from the faltering Lakers,
and, if succefsful in tonight's
game at Minneapolis, they would
be the first team in the NBA's
nine-year history to sweep the
title series in four straight.
Th Celtics' old reliables, Bill
Sharman, ,ob Cousy, and Bill
Russell provided all the spark
necessary in the" Bean Town
team's 123-110 victory in the third
game of the playoffs. Sharman
went over his own NBA record of
55 straight free throws by one-
after sinking six in this game.
Cousy led the team with his
playmaking and ball handling
while Russellpicked off 30 re-
bounds to boost his total/ for the
three games to 88.
Meanwhile the Canadiens open
the final series .in the Stanley Cup

playoffs facing the great come-
back team, the Toronto Maple
Leafs.
The best-of-seven set to deter-
mine the victor of hockey's most
prized trophy begins in the Mon-
treal Forum.
