WOLVERINE STARTERS-Starting for Michigan when the Wolverines open their home season this afternoon against Wayne State will
be, from left to right, Dennis Spalla, Bill Freehan, and Dick DeLamielleure. Freehan and Spalla will be appearing for the first time be-
fore the home fans. Both have been impressive in drills and on the spring tour. DeLamielleure, a reserve last year, has moved into the
starting berth vacated by Dave Brown in left field.
Lund Names Mareereau McGinn To Hurl

Barringrain, sleet, hail, snow
or some other astronomical phe-
nomena, Michigan will open its
1961 home baseball season today
against Wayne State University at
'3:30 p.m. at Ferry Field..
Unlike the Tigers, the Wolver-
ines will not have two chaps nam-
ed John Swainson and Louis Miri-
ani throwing out the first ball but
maybe it's better that way. Tues-
day in Detroit Swainson showed
up late and reliefer Miriani al-
most stuck his first toss in Bob
Michigan'coach Don Lund will
replace the politicians with senior
righthander Denny McGinn, who
is scheduled to work the first five
innings. Fellow senior Bob Mar-
cereau will toil the final four
frames in continuation of coach
Lund's pattern of giving his pit-
chers the maximum amount of
work before the Big Ten cam-
McGinn, who was 5-2 last year,
left the desert country with an
even up 1-1 mark, having pitched
10% innings and yielded two runs.
He walked three and whiffed one.
Last spring Marcereau finished
with a 2-1 mark including a 6-0
shutout of Iowa, the Wolverines'
only whitewash job of the 1960,
chase. On the college grapefruit
circuit last week in Arizona Mar-
cereau failed to record a decision
but was batted around pretty
In 143 innings against Phoe-
nix JC and Arizona State the er-
ratic left-hander was touched for
10 runs-seven of them earned-

Figures usually don't lie, but
in Marcereau's case they do. He
just wasn't that bad in Arizona.
Rather, he just wasn't that bad
in one game in Arizona. Against
Phoenix he turned in an im-
pressive 10 innings, allowing only
one earned run before he was
His "Waterloo" came four days
later against Arizona when he
was bombarded for 11 hits and
six runs in four innings.
Lund can be thankful for two
things today-Wayne State is not
a junior college and the Ferry
Field diamond is surounded by a
green picket fence.
Michigan's only losses on the
spring trip came at the hands-
or bats-of Phoenix JC, a junior
sized version of the Pittsburgh
Meeting all comers in their own
park-an uncircumscribed plot of
terra firma that would make Yan-
kee Stadium look like a backyard
playpen-Phoenix is content to
bunt, stroke and score while the
visitors slash, mash and fly out.
The Wolverines, too, were caught
in this coup.
Aided by the light desert air
and Henrich and Bradsby, several
Michigan batsmen poled balls that
could have been used to measure
weather conditions in the strato-
sphere. But once down they only
touched leather on the hands of
outfielders stationed telescopically
from home plate.
Today the air will be heavier
but the fence closer-about 200
feet. Ferry Field measures 340-ft.

lines and 380-ft. to straight-a-way
center, an inviting target for a
Michigan team that still managed
to poke seven homers in Arizona
despite playing three games in a
Lund won't admit it but for this
1961 Wolverine team that four
foot green picket fence could -
dollar for dollar - be the most
important purchase the athletic
department ever made.
