THURSDAY,MAY 17,1962 THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Notre Dame Offers Tune-Up for Weekend

PAGE SEI

By MIKE BLOCK
Special To The Daily

SOUTH BEND-Michigan's Wol-
verines, hot on the trail of their
second consecutive Big' Ten base-
ball championship, arrived here
today for a non-conference bout
with the Fighting Irish of Notre
Dame.'
The game today is the first on
a three-day road trip which pro-
vides the Wolverines with a single'
contest tomorrow at Northwestern
and a double chance Saturday at
Wisconsin.

Michigan currently leads the
Big Ten with an 11-1 won and lost
mark. Close behind, as they have
been almost all season, are the
Illini at 10-2. Both teams round
out their conference schedules
with three games this weekend.
Magic Number 3
For the Wolverines, then, the
magic number is three. Any com-
bination of Michigan victories and
Illinois defeats adding up to three
would mean the return of the
title to Ann Arbor. Anything less
than that number would mean

.309 Big Ten Mark

By BOB ZWINCK
Will it be Michigan-or Illinois-
as the Big, Ten representative in
the NCAA district playoffs?
Each has three more hurdles in
the race to the wire, but the Illini
are a full stride behind, and they
cannot win unless the Wolverines
trip over one of the final hurdles.
Michigan leads the Western
Conference with an 11-1 record
and faces both of the teams tied
for fourth this weekend. First
comes Northwestern tomorrow and
then a doubleheader at Wisconsin
in the final games of the regular
season. Both have 5-6 records.
Illinois takes on Minnesota (0-7)
and then Iowa f(3-5) twice at
home. A 10-2 record leaves the
Illini in second place, one game
back, and hardly allows room for
a loss.
Offensively, Ohio State leads
with a .310 average, with Michi-

gan close behind at .309. North-
western, MSU, and Illinois follow
at .267, .251, and .248, respective-
ly.
Offensively, Illinois is fielding
.972 to head the Conference. Their
mound crew of Tom Fletcher (4-
0), Doug Mills (4-0), Ron Johnson
(2-1), and Jerry Rozmus (0-1)
has a combined earned-run-aver-
age of only 1.24.
Michigan has a fifth-ranking
.954 fielding percentage, while the
hurlers have a. 2.67 ERA. Dave
Roebuck (5-0) is the winningest
pitcher in the Conference and is
backed by John Kerr (3-0), Wayne
Slusher (1-0) and Fritz Fisher
(2-1).
MSU's Jeff Abrecht leads the
Big Ten in batting with a .545
average. Bob Klein of OSU is sec-
ond, hitting .434.
RBI Leader
Dennis Spalla is third with .425
and leads the Conference with 16
RBI's.
Six stolen bases puts Joe Jones
on top in that department. He al-
so is batting .370, tenth in the Big
Ten. Dick Honig is twelfth with a
.367 average.
