Play

By BOB ZWINCK
Acting Contributing Sports Editor
No one can really blame Coach
Moby Benedict and his crew if
they look beyond this afternoon's
battle here with the University of
Detroit, for they still have as good
a shot as anyone at the Big Ten
baseball title.
Last week the Titans were on
the midget end of a 14-2 score
on their home field against the
Wolverines, who lashed out 13 hits
-though power-hitting outfielder
Jim Steckey got the only extra
base hit, a double.
The surprising thing is that
the defending NCAA Champions,
who own a rather blue Maize and
Blue record of 5-4, are a mere
half-game back'.of the conference
leader, Iowa, who is 5-3. Thee
iawkeyes were -tied for seventh
going into the weekend action.
Four Others
No less than four .other teams
are tied for second with the Wol-
verines. Of these, Michigan will
only be facing Ohio State. The
pair will battle it out Saturday on
the Buckeye diamond in a crucial
doubleheader.,
Big Ten Standings

Inthe topsey-turvey Big Ten
"race" a .500 average is good for
seventh placed yet only one game
out of first. Before the end of
the season, a scant two weekends
away, any team save Indiana, who
is 2-7, could be on the top rung.
Even Michigan State, at 3-5, still
has a fairly good chance.
Benedict will be figuring out
his pitching rotation starting with
Satur day's doubleheader and
working backwards. Most likely he
will call on ace southpaw Fritz
Fisher and his best righty Dave
Roebuck to hurl against the
Buckeyes. Fisher's record is 7-1
and Roebuck stands at 4-1.
Against Indiana
Sophomore lefty Clyde Barnhart
'(1-2) will probably get the nod for
Friday's Indiana contest.
That would leave either Marlin
Pemberton (0-0) or Jerry Hribar
(0-1) to hurl against Notre Dame
on the first game of the three-day
trip on Thursday.,
All of which leaves today's start-
er very much up in the air. Bene-
dict is still undecided about who
will get the call. He would like
to have Roebuck throw some be-
fore next Saturday, but since he
pitched against Michigan State
last Friday for 12 innings, he said,
"We'll have to see just how his
arm feels."
Re-scheduled
Benedict recently announced
that he and Coach Charles Maher
of Western Michigan University
have agreed upon dates to play
the two contests which were rain-
ed out earlier in the season. On
Monday. May 20, WMU will come
here. Then on Wednesday, May 22,
a day after the Bowling .Green
game here, the Wolverines will
travel to Kalamazoo for the re-
match.

MAJOR LEAGUE SUPPORT:

.?

Benedict Approves Proposed
Summer Ball for Collegians

By BILL BULLARD
Coach Moby Benedict has ex-
pressed approval of a proposed
system of summer leagues for col-
lege players supported by the ma-
jor leagues..
Baseball Commissioner Ford
Prick announced a $50,000 grant,
to set up the first league of the
system last Wednesday. The new
league will be known as the Cen-
tral Illinois Collegiate League.
Eventually the major leagues hope
to establish these leagues all over
the country as training grounds
for future baseball talent.
College players from 13 states
-Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indi-
ana, Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin,
Minnesota, North Dakota, South
Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska and Ok-
lahoma--will be eligible to com-
pete in the league. The players
would be paid only' their expenses
in order to maintain their college
eligibility, Frick said.
Very Interested
"I'm very interested in this new
league," commented Benedict. "It's
a way to improve baseball in gen-
eral and especially college base-
ball. It would be a good experience
for the players and for, coaches
like myself.
"After talking to Illinois Coach
Lee Eilbrecht, my understanding
is that this new league would not
be ready to go into operation this
summer. But that was two weeks
ago and I don't know what the
situation is now."

Benedict. has coached teams in1
the Basin League in South Dakota
for the past few summers. Many
of the Michigan players and other
Big Ten players compete In this
league. Benedict has no plans to
coach in the Basin League or any-
where else this summer.
Not Ideal Place
"South Dakota is not the ideal
place to play baseball," Benedict
said. "I've heard that they may
revive an old league that used to
be in the New England area. I'd
be interested in this. But a league
in the Midwest here would be very
nice."
Benedict indicated that one wel-
come developnent of .the new
league might be that ' the pro
leagues would be more willing to
let major league prospects attend
college for four years before sign-
ing them.
"I'm disgusted with the pros for
signing our players in their sopho-
more years after we've spent two
years o nthem," Benedict com-
mented. "We have them for just a
year of competition before the pros
sign them.
Tremendous!
"Can you imagine what our
team would have been like last
season or this' season with Bill
Freehan and Mike Joyce? We
might lose a game once in a while
but.not many."
Freehan signed with the Detroit
Tigers and Joyce signed with the
Chicago White Sox after they led
Michigan to a Big Ten champion-

ship during their sophomore sea-
sons in the'spring of 1961.
"I hope the major leagues will
leave the players alone for four
years under the new setup and let
them develop like they would in
the minor leagues," said Benedict.
"They should let the players get
an education since they will have
good competition and play a lot
of games in addition to getting
an education."
Benedict also .revealed that the
trimester calendar to start next
fall will not affect the baseball
team next season to any great de-
gree. The same Big Ten schedule
will be in effect as this season.
Examinations in the middle of
May and the weekend series of
May 15-16 will conflict. But Bene-
dict has had experience with these
problems. Last spring the District
IV NCAA baseball tournament was
going on at the same time as
exams.
