By YVONNE COLVARD
Still building for the Big Ten
season, Michigan's baseball team
limbers up with a four-game home
stand this weekend.
The Wolverines host Eastern
Michigan in a doubleheader this
afternoon and Detroit in a twin-
bill tomorrow. Both will start on
the Ferry Field diamond at 1 p.m.
Coach Moby Benedict plans to
divide the work among his eight
pitchers in the exhibition tests.
Hurlers Jim LyiJyen (0-2) or
Geoff Zahn (2-1) will probably
get the call against EMU but
Benedict is still undecided.
"We try to make sure that each,
pitcher gets work regularly, and
at this time of the year games get

rained out fairly often. Our an-
swer is to have the pitchers split
the games, at least until the
weather settles down."
Zahn and starter Bill Zepp split
pitching duties against Bowling
Green last Tuesday, and the 8-0
Wolverine win gave Zahn a 2-1
won-lost record.
EMU Worries Benedict
Coach Benedict anticipates a
rugged twinbill against Eastern,
as EMU has just returned from a
southern spring trip with a 5-5
record.
"Of course playing aainst Flori-
da schools is not the same as play-
ing a Big Ten school like Mich-
igan," admits EMU sports director
John Fountain, "but we are look-

sports information director Wal-
ter Doherty. "They edged us 19-3."
Last year's whiz kid Mark Ot-
tenbreit is the Titan's top hitter.
The right fielder has been term-
ed an "adequate college hitter,"
by Doherty. In the 1966 season Ot-
tenbreit was .400 with 65 times
at bat.
Coach Bob Miller must mold his
youthful team and "woeful pitch-
ing" to face the "M" nine Satur-
day.
Benedict, though, is hesitant to
talk of victory. "U. of D. was
beaten by Toledo because they
made lots of mistakes. That
doesn't mean they will make mis-
takes against us."
Coach Benedict is hoping for a
fruitful weekend with an 8-4 rec-
ord and a successful spring trip,
and is looking forward to next Fri-,
day when Big Ten competition will
begin.
An Indiana University double-
header at Bloomington will give
Les Tanona a chance to exercise
his new position in Big Ten com-
petition. First baseman Jim Hos-
ler. who leads the team in hit-
ting with .414, will see action in'
his first Big Ten varsity season.
* * *
The wire services rank South-
ern California and Stanford as the
two best college baseball teams in
the nation, followed by Arizona
State.

Seven promising freshman gym-
nasts will compete for Michigan
tomorrow in the Michigan Gym-
nastics Association Open Meet at
Michigan State in East Lansing.
This is an important meet for
the Wolverines in that it will en-
able Coach Newt Loken to see
how well these upcoming varsity
gymnasts measure up under com-
petitive conditions. Seven seniors,
who played vital roles in propel-
ling the Wolverines to a second
place finish in the Big Ten and
a second in the NCAA finals, will
be lost through graduation, and
freshmen will be counted on to
fill their shoes.
Three of the Michigan frosh
hail from Illinois. Side horse spe-
cialist Jim DeBoc, who finished
third in the state meet a year ago,
is entered along with fellow Prairie
State native Steve Vanek.
Ron Rapper, who placed second
in the state on parallel bars, is
the third Illinoisian seeing action.
Rapper has exceeded the marks
of the varsity on occasion this

Burton Breaks AAU Mark

By The Associated Press
DALLAS, Tex. - Mike Burton
of Southern California broke the
AmericaA record for the 500-yard
freestyle opening the finals of
the National AAU indoor swim-+
ming meet last night and while
he was at it tied the pending
record.
He did it in the absence be-
cause of illness of Greg Bucking-
ham of the Santa Clara Swim
Club, the defending champion. It
was Buckingham's pending rec-
ord of 4:37.0, set two weeks ago+
In the NCAA, that he equalled.
Burton led all the way to win
and crack the recognized Ameri-

can record of 4:41.1, held by
Buckingham.
The withdrawal of Buckingham
came as a shock because he was
expected to win the event. He
qualified during the afternoon in
4:40.1-a tenth of a second be-
hind Burton, who was in another
heat.
The next event also produced
an American record as Bill Utley
of Indiana defended his 200-yard
individual medley championship
with a blistering 1:55.9. It crack-
ed the American record of 1:56.2
held by Roy Saari.
Dick Roth of Santa Clara Swim
Club was second in 1:57.2.

ing forward to facing the Wolver-
ines with a well balanced team."
"We face Michigan every year
this time of the year, usually as
our first game."
Huron coach Ron Cestrike will
probably start pitchers Jay Sch-
walm and Rick Crumm, both right
handers, against Michigan's pre-

dominantly right handed hitting
lineup.
U. of D. will face Michigan with
the disadvantage of no spring trip.
The Titans are rebuilding their
graduation - depleted lineup with
freshmen and sophomores.
"We played one game, Monday,
against Toledo," says U. of D.
