'M' Nine Plays Western Michigan in NCI

College baseball season

over?

Not for the Wolverines.

r. _

Today is the first day of the
NCAA District 4 playoffs at West-
ern Michigan. And, as a result of
the district meeting Sunday at
ForthWayne, Ind., Michigan will
be there.
The schedule for this afternoon
sees the Wolverines acting as
"home team" to the Broncos of
WMU (although the match will
be at Kalamazoo) in the first
game, end in the second, Detroit
(24-2) will play host to Illinois
(26-5).
Old Friends
Western Michigan is not exactly
an unknown as far as Michigan is
concerned. Don Lund's stalwarts
have just finished plastering the'
Broncos in a three-game set, 9-2,
6-1, and 6-0. The triumvirate of
victories left the Wolverines with

a 23-11 record at the close of the
regular season, and a 19-5 mark
since coming home from Arizona.
Western's mark plunged to 15-4.
As of last Friday, the Bronocos
were ranked as the nation's
seventh best college baseball squad
by a national magazine, and the
Wolverines 14th. It would seem,
that these ratings are due for
some revision.
The starters slated for today are
Fritz Fisher (5-5) for Michigan
and Ken Larson (5-1) for Western.
Fisher vanquished Larson in Fri-
day's 9-2 joust at Ann Arbor.
Honig Doubtful
The Wolverines are sound for
the series opener with the possible
exception of shortstop Dick Honig.
Honig slashed the little finger on
his left hand on May 18 at Wis-
consin and has been carrying
around six stitches ever since. He
took infield practice Saturday, but
Lund does not plan to start him
unless he is 100 per cent recovered.
Jim Newman has sparkled both
afield and at bat filling in for
Honig, and will continue to replace
Honig should he be unavailable.
Besides the superb hurling the
Wolverines got against Western,
one of the major reasons for their
successes was the sudden outburst
of catcher Joe Merullo. The senior
backstop, who had been in the
midst of a slump tprior to the
series, notched several run-produc-
ing hits and did his usual compe-
tent job of handling the Michigan
pitchers.

man John Kerr will be closing
out their diamond careers with the+
postseason contests. These two
are the only seniors in Lund's
regular rotation, but their absence
will be felt keenly next year.;
The District 4 tourney is run
on a doublehelimination basis.
This means that in order for a
team to be eliminated, it must
drop two games, and thus the
winner of the tourney may be
the loser of one game before walk-
ing off with the crown.
The Winner of the Michigan-
WMU game today and the victor
in the Illini-Titan bout will meet
in tomorrow's second game and
the losers will encounter each
other in the opener. This will con-
tinue until every team but one
has dropped two decisions. The
champ then proceeds to the na-
tional tournament at Omaha.
Spalla Honored.
Another development of the Fort
Wayne meeting was that Dennis
Spalla, Michigan center fielder
was named to the all- District 4
all-star team. Spalla led all Wol-
verine hitters in batting average
and runs batted in and was second
in the Big Ten with 17 RBIs.
