Young Man's Fancy
Turns to Baseball
Kentucky, Duke Hit by Illness
By DALE SIELAFF
In spring a young man's fancy
turns to thoughts of ... baseball.
In fact, for the members of
Michigan's '66 baseball team,
thoughts of baseball never really
stopped. Through last season, fall
practice, and again starting this
past January, the Wolverines have
been keeping in shape, hoping to
regain the touch that brought
them a national championship in
1962, and working to move up one
spot from the second place finish
of last year.
Last season, the Wolverines fin-
ished behind Ohio State, playing
largely on Coach Moby Benedict's
theory that "you can beg, ball, or
steal a run somehow. More games
can be won through pitching and
defense than anything else."
Despite the amount of time
spent in practice since last fall,
the team has been working under
a handicap; namely, working in
Yost Field House rather than out-
Playing Second Fiddle
Until this week, the weather
forced the team indoors, where
they played second fiddle to Dave
Strack and the basketball team,
baseball being tucked into two net
4 cages for hitting practice at the
south end of the building.
Behind the plate, Ted Sizmore,
a 5-9, 170 senior from Detroit
Pershing, is back for his third
year, after catching 30 games and
hitting .248. Backing up Sizmore
are three sophs, Larry Prentis,
Jerry O'Neil, and Jim Berline.
Among the infield, Benedict
feels he has the quartet to give
him the defense that wins ball
games, with veterans Chan Si-
monds at first, Rick Sygar at sec-
ond, and Captain Bob Gilhooley at
short. Junior Keith Spicer, a
transfer from the University of
Detroit, will be playing his first
year for Michigan at third in the
spot vacated by Rick Volk, who
may find himself filling the spot
vacated by Wally Gabler on the
In the outfield, the Wolverines
lost last season's Big Ten batting
champ to the Baltimore Orioles
farm system. Carl Cmeirek hit a
robust .453, with five home runs,
before signing with the Birds
after his first and last Michigan
Three lettermen are back, with
Al Bara slated to hold down the
right field spot again. Bara hit
.339 last summer, good for second
on the team.
Also back are Les Tanona (.290),
and Dick Schryer (.331). Among
the three, they had an average of
.327, almost 100 points over the
team average of .234.
This early in the season, it's
hard to get a coach to make a pre-
diction, unless he happens to be
Leo Durocher, but Benedict did
comment, "It's tough to say any-
thing about the conference this
early, so I'll have to go on past
experience, and name Minnesota,
en by anybody, and anyone can
beat anyone on any given day,
particularly through the pitching.
Suppose a team with a poor record
has one good pitcher and you come:
up against him in a one game
series. He can hold you, and a
team that may be worse overall
has beaten you. But, if you played
them over the course of 10 or 20
games, you'd win most of them,
just like the Athletics might beat
the Yankees once or twice, but
New York consistently takes the
"In the Big Ten it isn't like
that. You play each team once or
twice, and that's it. You need the
breaks, as well as the team."
The spring trip starts March 25
and runs through April 2, with 14
games scheduled. By the time the
team is back here, the weather
should be better, and the team will
have five days before the season
opener against Detroit at Ferry
Field on April 8. Benedict feels he
has a strong, experienced team.
If he's right, and Michigan is
on top by the close of the season
on May 21 here against Mich-
igan State, maybe the Spartans
won't take the All-Sports crown.

LEXINGTON, Ky.-Larry Con-
ley, senior forward on the top-
ranked Kentucky basketball team,
was under a doctor's care -Tues-'
day night after leaving practice'
early in the session complaining'
of chest pains.
Coach Adolph Rupp said, "be-
sides Conley, ten other players
are suffering from colds and some
complain of chest pains . . . It is
true that we have a sick bunch
of boys . .. It looks like the flu
may have hit us."
Conley took himself out of the
lineup after about four minutes
of a scrimmage and was taken
to a hospital.
