Michigan's baseball team swings
back into action today after a
week's rest as they host fourth
place Indiana at Ferry Field at
3:30.
With their own title hopes
ruined by the doubleheader loss to
Minnesota two weeks ago and the
split in last Saturday's twin bill
with Michigan State, the Wolver-
ines find themselves in the role
of the spoiler.
Six Gamee Left
Going into the last six games
of the season, Michigan meets the
Hoosiers this afternoon and Ohio
State tomorrow, and then takes
to the road for games at North-
western and Wisconsin next week-
end.
All four of these teams have
title aspirations. The Hoosiers on
the basis of their split with Min-
nesota last week have to be con-
sidered, and because of the usual
rainouts, Ohio State and North-
western each with only loss are
sure to be factors. Wisconsin is
still unbeaten, but they have only
played one game.
Today Coach Don Lund will use
left-hander Bob Marlereau against
the Hoosiers who are expected to

RETIRED COACH-Bill Perigo who resigned Wednesday as Mich-
igan's basketball coach is shown in deep concentration during one
of the many games he coached. Perigo plans to get his master's
degree and then go into administration or personnel work.

A New Career .. .
One of the "nice" guys on the Michigan sports scene resigned
from his job Wednesday night.
After 26 years of coaching, Bill Perigo is going to try his hand
in a field that has always appealed to him-personnel and admin-
istration.
Perigo indicated that he will get a master's degree in physical
education at Michigan before seeking a job on either the college or
the junior college level.
Perigo said, "I plan to be employed somewhere in the University
while I'm working on my degree; right now, I'm not sure whether it
will be in the athletic department or not."
The past year was a bad one for Michigan basketball, and Perigo.
The team was hard hit by injuries, academic ineligibilities and ill-
nesses throughout the season. There probably was never a year when
more different men played on the starting five.
Perigo said, "We never have had a real deep team in the eight
years I have been here at Michigan, but somehow we have always
managed to get by without any serious trouble. This year we didn't."
"I have to give a lot of credit to the guys who did play this year;
their morale was always high. Even if we got beat real bad the game
before, the boys would always bounce right back and be in there
trying."
Bue there were better years during Perigo's eight year reign, last
year for instance. With George Lee, M. C. Burton and John Tidwell
leading the way the Wolverines surprised a lot of people and finished
in a tie for second in the Big Ten standings. The squad's 15-7 record
was the best established during Perigo's tenure.
However, it is the 1956-57 squad that gives Perigo his fondest
memories. Members of this year's senior class, freshmen at the time,
will remember that season as the one Michigan finished like champ-
ions.
The Wolverines led by Ron Kramer put on two terrific late sea-
son performances to whip Indiana and Michigan State who were
Conference co-champions that year.
A Memorable Evening .. .
The game against the Spartans was particularly memorable. It
was the final contest of the season and Michigan State needed a
victory for undisputed possession of the Conference crown.
Every nook and cranny in Yost Fieldhouse was jammed an hour
before game time. The Wolverines had beaten the powerful Spartans
earlier in the 'season and the fans wanted to see them do it again.
And they did. With Kramer putting on a great farewell perform-
ance, the Wolverines snapped the Spartan win streak at 10 with a
stirring 82-71 victory. Reminiscing Perigo said, "They were a great
bunch of kids. It was too bad that we didn't get started earlier in
the season, we might have won the title."
Right now Perigo is working on future Michigan teams. Carry-
ing out his duties until the end of the spring semester, Perigo is in-
volved in one of his most important duties, recruiting.
This is the time of year that Big Ten athletic tenders are given
out and Perigo is hard at work, lining up talent for next year's fresh-
men team.
It would be somewhat ironic if Perigo was successful in landing
one or two of the 6'7" plus high school stars he will be talking to
during the next few weeks. For Perigo's perennial problem during his
eight year reign was lack of a real big man to play the pivot.
No matter how hard Perigo tried he never succeeded in luring
one of these giants to enter-and stay in-school. Without a Walt
Bellamy, Archie Dee, or Joe Ruklick Michigan was always handi-
capped at this position.
Although he is looking forward to his new career in personnel
and administration, Perigo seemed sad about leaving the coaching
ranks. "It was always a lot of fun working with the boys and I en-
joyed every minute of it," said Perigo.

By The Associated Press
Jack Sanford pitched a 2-hitter
for San Francisco's second straight
1-0 victory over the Philadelphia
Phillies yesterday, boosting the
Giants' National League lead to
two full games.
The Chicago White Sox clung
to their lead in the American
League, although beaten 1-0 by
the Boston Red Sox, who got a
2-hit pitching feat from Tom
Brewer. They held a 1/12 game
edge over Boston and the Cleve-
land Indians, who handed the New
York Yankees their third straight
setback in extra innings 3-2 on
Russ Nixon's home run in the
11th. Detroit at Washington and
Kansas City at Baltimore were
rained out.
Duplicates Jones' Job
Sanford, duplicating the 2-hit
performance of teammate Sam
Jones on Wednesday, struck out
11 Phillies and walked three. The
Giants, who have won six straight,
scored in the fifth when catcher
Hobie Landrith singled home Wil-
lie Kirkland, who had collected
the first hit off Robin Roberts,
the loser.
The Braves beat the St. Louis
Cardinals 4-3 on Eddie Mathews'
home run, his sixth of the season
for Milwaukee, came in the eighth
after the Cards had tied the score

3-3 on three walks and a sacrifice
fly. Bob Rush was the winner in
relief on Bob Buhl. The loser was
Larry Jackson.
The Redlegs scored seven runs
in the first inning and six in the
second off four Cub pitchers. Bob
Anderson took the defeat while
Bob Purkey, who hurled a 6-hitter,
was the victor.
Pete Runnels hit a bases-loaded
single in the ninth inning for the
Red Sox' tight squeak triumph
over the White Sox.
