Philadelphia Pitcher Visits
Former Baseball Coach
By FRED KATZ
It's news when a Michigan State
alumnus attends a Wolverine foot,
ball practice session-a week after
the Michigan-MSU clash.
It's even bigger new: when that
alumnus turns out to be Robin
Roberts, great pitcher of the Phil-
Roberts, a close friend of retired
Michigan baseball coach Ray Fish-
er, went virtually unnoticed at grid
Guest of Fisher
The National League star of the
past several years is in town this
weekend as a house guest of Fish-
er, the man to whom Roberts has
given the greatest credit for his
meteoric success in the big time.
"I pitched against Ray and
Michigan in, 1946, and asked him
then if 1 could go with him to Ver-
mont to play in a summer league
designed especially for college stu-
dents," said Roberts.
"He had a rough season his first
year," recalls Fisher, "winning 11
and losing nine. But he really
came through the summer of '47,
posting an 18-3 mark."
The '1-year-old Fisher and the
32-year-old Roberts form a re-
freshing mutual admiration so-
"Opportunity to pitch regularly
for a guy like Ray was what made
me a pitcher," Roberts exclaimed.
"He certainly helped me, too,"
Fisher volunteered, "-by winning
all the time!"
Oddly enough, Roberts never
pitched before he arrived at State.
He enrolled in the school because
of a basketball scholarship.
Also watching the Wolverines
go through their paces was a
rugged, red-headed eight-year-old
named Robin, Jr,
"My boy's also a pitcher," said
the elder Roberts. And added with
a certain tinge of pride, "And a
"Not too many of us left, you
know. Just Mantle, Schoendienst
"Don't forget Philley (Dave),"
corrected Robin, Jr., who obviously
has learned his diamond lessons
