Honig Sparks M'

at Shortstop

FRATERNITY SOFTBALL:
Trigon, ATO, PDT Enjoy Hitting Spree

By PETE DILORENZI
Rookie shortstops have a way of
doing nice things for baseball
teams, especially when they come
through.
Take a case in point. Last year
the Baltimore Orioles were written
off by most as a second division
ball club mainly because of a
perennial weakness at shortstop.
The only contender was a 21 year
old rookie. Yet the Orioles came
through in a big way, leading the
league for a good part of the sea-
son and finishing second. The kid
shortstop-Ron Hansen - led the
way.
Take another, more significant,
case in point-the Wolverines. At
the beginning of this season, Coach
Don Lund anticipated a shortstop
problem. The chief contender was
a 19 year old sophomore-Dick
Honig. It was extremely important
that Honig make the grade. In
Coach Lund's words, "He had to
make it."
Had Confidence
Honig realized this, for in his
words, "I knew that I could come
through if I worked hard enough
at it."
Judging from his performance
in the season's 12 completed games,
Dick Honig has come through, and
in a big way.
But success has not come easily
to Honig. According to Lund, "We
never had any doubt that Dick
could hit, but his accomplishments
in the field have come as a result
of hard and diligent practice."
Practice Pays Off
Reviewing his performance so
far, it is quite clear that those
hours of practice have payed off.
In its western trip, the team suc-
cessfully executed 11 double plays,
in most of which Honig played the
major part. On the trip, he amassed
a total of 27 assists and eleven
putouts for a .950 fielding average.
In the Wayne State doubleheader,
Honig had a total of 11 assists,
many of them on balls hit over
second, or far to his right.
All in all, Honig has been more
than a pleasant surprise to Coach
Lund and to fans at the games. He
will certainly be a valuable asset
to the team when it encounters
NCAA champion Minnesota this
weekend.
Since High School
The 5'10", 160-lb. physical edu-
cation major from Farmington,

Michigan, has played shortstop
since high school. He played for
two years on the national cham-
pion Lundquist team of the Detroit
Federation. Last year, some of his
teammates were present, Wolver-
ines Bill Freehan, Jim Steckley,
and Fritz Fisher.
The other half of the Wolverine
second base - shortstop combina-
tion, Joe Jones, has this to say of
Honig, "Dick is always thinking.
He's always getting assignments
straight. He covers up for you if

you happen to forget an assign-
ment, and you never have to worry
about him forgetting his assign-
ments."
Asked about the team's Big Ten
chances, Honig said, "We can go a
long way in the Big Ten games if
the pitching comes through."
There may very well be a ques-
tion mark with the Wolverine
pitching staff this year, but there
is one position Coach Lund :eed
not worry about this year or for
the next two-shortstop.

Chilly weather seemed to mar
the performance of pitchers and
fielders, as the offensive units had
a field day in IM social fraternity
"A" action yesterday at Ferry
Field.
Sparked by seven unearned runs
in the second inning, Trigon rolled
over Alpha Kappa Lambda 18-1.
Bob Reeves lashed out three hits
including two home runs, batted
in six runs and struck out nine
AKL batters in five innings to
spark the aroused Trigon team.
Reeves' first homer came in the
big second inning with one on, and

'I

the other, with two men aboard,
came in the third. Charles Rowley
hit a circuit clout with one aboard
at the tail end of the second and
Art Schermerhorn contributed a
grand slam homer in the fifth.
Well-balanced hitting and a good
pitching performance by Bill Vose
led Alpha Tau Omega to a 21-2
rout over Phi Kappa Sigma. John
Enns paced ATO with three hits
while Dave Garcia, Lloyd Polinsky
and Vose added two apiece.
Phi Delta Theta, supported by
Mike Harmon's home run, crushed
Phi Sigma Delta 14-5. Tau Delta

Phi also won easily, downing Alpha
Delta Phi 14-4.
Two games ended in ties and
must be replayed at a later date.
Kappa Sigma, although outhit
17-8, tied Alpha Sigma Phi, 13-13.
In a game which saw the lead
change hands six times, Delta
Sigma Phi and Chi Phi played to
a 9-9 tie. Bill Martin homered for
Chi Phi in the first with no one
on base and Dick Fsher, DSP
pitcher, homered in the third with
one on.
Bruce Gordon blasted a grand-
slam home run in the second in-
ning to give the K Sigs a 6-1

lead, but Alpha Sigma Phi retal--
iated in their half of the third' to
forge into the lead. The game
see-sawed the rest of the way..
Beta Theta Pi, aided by Jim
Gnewich's home run, downed Tai
Epsilon Phi 10-6. Ray Silverstein
homered for the losers. Phi Kappa
Psi rallied for four runs in the last
inning to defeat Sigma Nu- 12-11.
Zeta Psi won 'over. Delta Tau
Delta by forfeit. Sigma Alpha Mu
likewise scored a win when the
Delta Chi team failed to show up.
As neither Sigma Chi nor Zeta
Zeta Tau appeared, the- game will
be rescheduled for a later date.

SPORT SHORTS:
Brown Retains Crown;
Snider, Neal Sidelined

DICK HONIG
... defense star

LONDON (P) - Lightweight.
champion Joe Brown of Baton
Rouge, La., cut Dave Charnley's
nose in the fifth round last night
and hammered out a decision over
the blood-smeared Briton in a 15-
round title fight.
The long-armed American re-
peatedly smashed Charnley's
gashed nose with fast rights and
snapping left jabs. By the 12th
round Charnley was bruised about
the eyes and trying desperately for
a long-shot knockout, but Brown
calmly pecked away with both
hands piling up points.
It was Brown's second straight
victory over the 25-year-old Lon-
doner and his tenth defense of the
135-lb. crown.
LOS ANGELES 01)-The already
slow starting Los Angeles Dodgers
were dealt two jolts yesterday with
injuries to second baseman Charlie
Neal and slugger Duke Sider.
Neal will be out of action for
several days with an injured left
knee while Snider fractured a bone

in his right elbow, which will
bench him for at least a month.
CHARLESTON, W. Va. (A)-An-
dres Gimeno, the professional
tennis circuit's rookie from Spain,
won four of the first five games
and upset defending world cham-
pion Pancho Gonzales, 12-7, in a
one-set match yast night.
It was the 24-year-old Gimeno's
first victory in seven meetings
with the veteran Gonzales on the
current 25-city tour. A crowd es-
timated at 2,000 saw former U.S.
Davis Cup Player Barry MacKay
surprise Australian Frank Sedg-
man, 20-18, in the other singles
match.
