Jones, Honig Double Trouble

KATZENMEYER PREDICTS:
Linksters Look to Upswing

By BILL BULLARD
Michigan's baseball team has
30 double plays in its first 20
games, a better average per game
than any major league team last
season.
The double play combination of
Dick Honig and Joe Jones has ac-
counted for 15 of the Wolverines'
30 double plays.
Honig and Jones have been
working on their double play tech-
niques together since their fresh-
man year, said Coach Don Lund.

Both Lund and Assistant Coach
Moby Benedict, a former infielder
himself, have given special in-
struction to the two.
Roommates
"We've spent a lot of time on
them," said Coach Lund, "We
wanted them to learn each other's
moves." Coach Lund says that he
even tries to have them room to-
gether on trips. Despite their
close cooperation as Michigan
team members, Honig and Jones
have never played on the same

team in the summer. The closest
they came to this was when they
played on different teams on the
Detroit sandlots.
The contribution to the team7
that a double play makes is a val-
uable one. Coach Lund said about
Honig and Jones that, "Our pitch-
ers feel real good with that kindJ
of support behind them."1
Only twice did a MichiganI
double play this season not in-
volve either Honig or Jones. Both
times the play originated with thej
pitcher.
Lucky Seven
Of the times when both Honig
and Jones were in on the double'
play, each received the grounder
seven times and each relayed the
throw to first seven times. The
other double play both participat-
ed in was started by outfielder Jim
Steckley.
Honig has been part of a double
play seven times without Jones.
Jones has done the same six times.
Four of his six plays have been
relaying the throw to first from
third-baseman Jim Newman. Ho-
nig has picked up two grounders,
made the putout at second tnd
thrown to first for the second out.
Two other of Honig's plays were
relaying the throw from the pitch-
er to the first baseman.
Triple Play
Honig also participated in a
rare triple play during the spring
trip. In the third game against
Arizona State, Catcher Joe Mer-
ullo caught a bunt in the air which
had been popped up and threw to
Honig who doubled the runner off
second. Honig then ran down the
runner who was off first base and
tagged him.
The Michigan team has execut-
ed three double plays in each of
two games and has failed to chalk
up a double play in only three
games. Arizona State was the vic-
tim of the three double play feat
in both games. The Wolverines
were blanked in the double play
column twice by Arizona State
and. once by Purdue.
The Jones-Honig combination,
as well as the exceptionally fine
fielding of the rest of the team,
fulfills at least part of Don Lund's
idea of a good baseball squad.
According to Lund, if you get
the other team out fast, they can't
possibly beat you.

By JIM BERGER
"I think this golf team will do
better than last year's," said Mich-
igan coach Bert Katzenmeyer.
Katzenmeyer says that the main
reason for Michigan's poor per-
formance in last week's quadrang-
ular meet at Illinois is that "we're
not ready to play yet.
"Up to this time we've spent all
our work on the practice tees,"
c o n t i n u e d Katzenmeyer, "the
thing we have to do now is get
out there and play.
"Perhaps we've spent too much
Major Lea oe
Standings

time getting our swings in shape
and trying to improve on the fun-
damental parts," he went on, "but
I thought it was necessary. Now
we've got to put all we've learned
into getting our scores down to
what they should be."
The Michigan mentor explained
that the team as of now is "not
in shape to play.
"This past week we've begun to
play. We've been out on the course
every day this week, rain and all,
and now we're starting to get
ready.
"I suppose you can look at the
process as a two-phase thing," he
explained. "First get your funda-
mentals and then apply them.
Well, we've spent just about all
the time up to now on fundamen-
tals; now we're in phase two."
Katzenmeyer is not worried

AND SO TO FIRST-Joe Jones, Michigan second baseman,
relays the ball to first to complete another double play. Jones
and keystone buddy Dick Honig have turned in 15 twin killings

By PETE DiLORENZI
Director of Intramural Athletics
Earl Riskey has announced that
the I-M Golf Tournament, orgin-
ally, scheduled for Saturday, May
12, has been postponed to the 19th,
The tournament will feature
competition among foursomes
from residence halls, social fra-
ternities, independents, and pro-
fessional fraternities. Each hous-
ing unit will be permitted to en-
ter one foursome. A team's score
will be the combined score of its
four members.
Last year's team winners were
Gomberg (residence hall), Sigma
Nu (social fraternity), Evans
Scholars, (independent), and Nu
Sigma Nu, (pro fraternity). The
All-Campus individual champion
was Don Thompson.
Riskey also voiced his hopes that
teams would register as soon as
possible for the tournanient, point-
ing out that early entrants will
have first choice of starting times.
There will be time for 67 four-
somes to compete in the meet.
The procedure for picking four-
somes is as follows: Each team,
upon entering, will designate its
four members as one, two, three,
and four. The foursomes will then
hopefully be formed by matching
four number one men, four num-
ber two men, etc., so as to keep
the deviation from average skill
within a foursome at a minmum.
Riskey stressed, however, that
this manner of selecting four-
somnes will be feasible only if
teams register early. If not, there
will be sufficient time only to
throw together foursomes before
the tournament.
Riskey also announced that the
regular-season I-M softball com-

lete, is the second all-state cager

petition is in its final stages and
added that on Friday at 5:00, the
teams will draw for playoff
berths.
Explaining the procedure for
playoffs, Riskey said there are
eleven separate divisions in the
softball league, and that the eleven
first place finishers will be matched
in a single-elimination playoff, as
will the eleven second-place teams,
etc.
