THE 1962 VICTORS
look at another title club

By BARRY ARGENBRIGHT
For the trivia question of thec
week, when was the last time a
Wolverine Baseball squad captur-
ed the NCAA championship? It
wasn't as long ago as most people
might think.,
With the well earned name of the'
"comeback kids", the 1962 Michi-
gan diamondmen scrapped andl
fought their way to a national
crown before most of the favored
teams knew what hit, them. The
Wolverines leaped from a disap-
pointing second place finish in the

Big Ten, to the top of the heap in
college baseball.
The road to success, however,
was not an easy one for the Wol-
verines. With their double loss to
Wisconsin permanently knocking
them out of first place in the Big
Ten, it looked as though they
would not even make it to the
NCAA mideast regional.
The Wolverine squad coached
by Don Lund, knew that there
was only one spot left in the re-
gional, and that would be filled
by either Notre Dame or itself.

FRIDAY EVENING-6 P.M.

As it turned out, Michigan's
two season ending victories over
the Mid-American champ, Wes-
tern Michigan, proved to be
enough to vault them into the
regional. ,
The regional was unquestionably
a one team show, as the Maize
and Blue notched four straight
victories to capture the double.
elimination tourney played at Kal-
amazoo. Michigan also gained re-
venge on the Big Ten champ,
Illinois, by ousting the Illini from
the competition.
ehiaps tne most amazing feat
of the entire series was recorded
by Michigan's Jim Kerr, who pit-
ched both ends of an afternoon
doubleheader. He first did away
with Illinois, and then followed up
with a second nine-inning perform-
ance to hand Western Michigan its
first tourney defeat.
It was on to the NCAA finals for
the Blue diamondmen and boy did
they go. The Wolverines jumped to
a fast start as they carted away
three straight victories.
On the first day, they down-
ed Texas 3-1, with the aid of a
two-run homer by Ron Tate in
the ninth inning. Almost unbe-
lievably, Michigan could muster
only three hits, but fortunately
pitcher Fritz Fisher held t h e
Longhorns in check, yielding a
mere five hits.
The Wolverines second m a t c h
proved a bit easier, as they hand-
ily defeated Holy Cross 11-4 on 14
hits and superb pitching by Kerr
and relief-man Jim Bobel.
The third victory was one of
those familiar come-from-behind
Iaffairs as they crushed Florida
State 10-7. Michigan had been be-
hind 7-3 in the sixth inning be-
fore nulling it out of the fire.
Satisfying the critics who con-
tended that this young Wolverine
team was only human, Michigan
dropped their next contest with
Texas by a score of 7-0. The field
was now reduced to only t h r e e
teaTs: Michigan, Santa Clara, and
Texas.
The next day, Saturday, June 16,
all the marbles were laid on the
table. Michigan, who had drawn
a bye, watched as Santa Clara fin-
ished off Texas rather easily.

The Wolverines then faced the
task of tackling Santa Clara, and
after nine innings both teams were
deadlocker 3-3. But finally in the
fifteenth inning, Michigan's Harv-
ey Chapman singled and pitcher
Jim Bobel tripled, scoring Chap-
man. Bobel then scored what prov-
ed to be the winning run on a wild
pitch. Santa Clara could muster
only one run in their half of the
inning, which meant Michigan, for
only the second time in its history,
had captured the coveted NCAA
baseball crown.
The University of Michigan
could now boast of a NCAA
champion, but how about t h e
world championship? The U-M
baseball team took care of things
there too. They defeated Hosei
University of Japan in best of
five game series played in Hono-
lulu.
The final score: Michigan 2,
Hosei 1. There was nothing left
to conquer. The Maize and Blue
were now the world collegiate
champions.
In the deciding game of the ser-
ies, Fritz Fisher was called upon
to stop Hosei, and he did so in a
highly impressive manner. He al-I
lowed only one run, that coming inI
the opening inning when he walked
in a man, while his teammates
managed to knock in two scores.
Behind the able hitting of Harvey
Chapman, Fisher, and Dick Honig,
the Wolverines prevailed.

From wire Service Reports
NEW YORK - The Philadel-
phia, 76'ers, who blazed a record
of ineptitude while piling up the
losingest record in the NBA, lost
their chance to recoup next sea-
son when All-Everything B i l1l
Walton indicated that he would
return to UCLA for his senior
year.
The Sixers, who had offered
Walton wealth beyond his wild-
est dreams if he joined up, had
the number one pick in t h i s
year's draft.
"Money has never been a fac-
tor," said the red headed B plus
student.

and seven Big Tenchampionships.
Overall Taylor owns a quite re-
spectable won-lost record of 268-
109. In recent years, however, Tay-
lor has come under fire 'for his
alleged failure to recruit and play
minority cagers. This year's var-
sity carried but two blacks, one
being starter Wardell Jackson.
The Northwestern job was vacat-
ed by the resignation of Brad Syn-
der, who engineered a -stunning up-
set of highly tauted Minnesota in
the final game of the season which
prevented the Golden Gophers from
claiming the title. Taylor remained
the top choice until his announce-
ment today.
"We were very sorry to lose Fred-
day," said Dye, "but the job is
still open." He did not choose to
speculate on the selection now that
Taylor is not available.

I idn t want to be recuperating
in a new situation," said the Buck-
eye mentor of 15 seasons who miss-
ed three games this campaign af-
HRter complaining of chest pains.
