Elliott Greets 115 for Spring Football

AFTER NINE GAMES:
Freehan's Hot Bat Paces M'

r.

Four sophomores, Bill Freehan,
Joe Jones, Jim Newmanand Den-
nis Spalla are pacing Michigan
batters after the first nine games
of the season.
Freehan can almost be called
Mr. Everything as he leads in hits
with 15, triples with two, home
runs with four, and RBI's with 16.
His .405 average is also tops.
The only offensive department
the big sophomore doesn't lead
the team in is doubles, where
senior Dick DeLamiellure holds
the top spot.

In the pitching department two
other sophomores, Mike Joyce and
Fritz Fisher, both have 2-0 records
to lead the hurlers.

--Daily-James Warneka
OPENING DAY-The Major League baseball teams were not the only ones to open yesterday, as
Michigan began the first of its 20 spring football practices. More than 115 players went through a
stiff two-hour drill, with the large squad working in four smaller groups. The turnout was larger
than Head Coach Bump Elliott and his staff hadanticipated, but was less than last year's 127.
Sixteen lettermen were present yesterday including the 1960 starting backfield.

Reds turned back the Chicago
Cubs, 7-1.
In the American League, the
New York Yankees started defense
of their championship on a sour
note when; they were shut out
by the Minnesota Twins, 6-0; the
Los Angeles Angels stopped the
Baltimore Orioles, 7-2, and the
Kansas City A's polished off the
Boston Red Sox, 5-2.
Mike McCormick, last year's
National:League earned run lead-
er, was the victim of. Virdon's
homer. With two out in the top,
of the ninth, -the Giants appear-
ed to have the game all wrapped
up.

ter, walked. That finished Miller
and McCormick took over. Virdon
whacked his first pitch over the
right field fence.
Elroy Face, third of three Pi-
rate pitchers, held the Giants in
check in the ninth and received
credit for the victory. Earlier, Or-
lando Cepeda and Willie McCov-
ey had hit homers for the Giants.
Daryl Spencer was the big man
for the Cards. He connected with
veteran Warren. Spahn's first
pitch in the 10th for a homer
that lifted St. Louis to victory
over the Braves.
Until then, the 39-year-old'
Spahn had been in command. The
Braves' lone run came on a hom-
er by Eddie Mathews off starter
Ernie Broglio in the fourth. Re-
liever Lindy McDaniel was the
winner.
Jim O'Toole pitched a four-hit-
ter against the Cubs..Frank Rob-
inson and Wally Post made his
task easy, each hitting a home
run. Post's was good for three
runs.
Pedro Ramos shut out the Yanks
for the Twins-the old Washing-
ton Senators moved west. He also
helped his own cause by knocking
in two runs. Bob Allison and Reno
Bertola hit homers for the win-
ners. Whitey Ford was the'loser.
The Los Angeles Angels, a new
club in the 10-team American
League, showed their impressive
muscle. to the Orioles. Big Ted
Kluszewski hit homers in his first
two trips to the plate to account
for five runs and Bob Cerv hit
another with no one on. Eli Grba
went all the way for the victory.
Four unearned runs in the sec-
ond helped Kansas City to its
triumph over Boston in' the shiv-
ering raid-30 weather. Ray Her-
pert kept the Red Sox in check
until he got in a jam in the eighth.

"Fisher and Joyce >are my top
two starters," the Wolverine men-
tor remarked. Michigan's three
losses occurred in games when
neither sophomore pitched an in-
ning.;
Bill Freehan, the big sophomore
catcher-first baseman, feasted on
the warm atmosphere to the tune
of four home runs, 17 runs-batted-
in, and a .416 batting average, and.
caused Lund to exclaim sriling-
ly, "He's my best all-around
player, a definite professional
prospect."
Lund also had praise for sec-
ond sacker Joe Jones' play. Jones,
another sophomore, hit .359 as
well-as contributing eight RBI's,
most of them coming in the
clutch. The fleet infielder also
stole four bases and along with
shortstop Dick Honig figured- in
many of the 11 double plays exe-
cuted by Michigan during then
tour.

Honig did not hit too well, but
ex-Tiger Lund is not worried.
"He's a much better hitter than
his average indicates and he
makes all the plays in the field."
Sophomore outfielder Jim New-
man was a pleasant surprise as he.
batted over .306 and netted four
stolen bases. Another new face on
this year's nine, left fielder Jim
Steckley, hit well and blasted a
game-tying home run in Arizona.
Looking forward a bit; Lund
feels his biggest deterrent to a
possible Big Ten title is NCAA
champ Minnesota, but Ohio State
and Michigan State figure to be
contenders..
Lund glanced to the field where
Joe Jones made a neat scoop of
a tricky grounder. "We'll be up
there all right," he predicted. Who
is to dispute him?
