Oosterbaan calls it quits

A N N A R B O R (A) -
Bennie Oosterbaan sat back in
the swivel chair of his office at
the University of Michigan and
propped his legs on the desk.
"The character of individuals
is brought out in football," he
said. "There are intangibles
that the average spectator
doesn't realize . . . Football
players have a common goal:
learn leadership; develop spirit,
enthusiasm, confidence; in-
spire and are inspired by ac-,
tion; develop personalities."
"A physique doesn't make it,"
he added. "People think all you

Giants acquire Cleveland duo;
Braves, Phils swap hurlers
By The Associated Press
0 NEW YORK - The New York Giants of the National
Football League announced yesterday they had acquired defensive
end Jack Gregory and defensive back Fred Summers in separate
transactions with the Cleveland Browns.
Gregory, a 6-foot-5, 250-pounder heading for his sixth pro
season, had played out his option with the Browns and negotiated
with the Giants as a free agent. The Giants turned over their
No. 1 1973 draft choice as compensation.
Summers, 6-foot-1, 190-pounder with three NFL seasons be-
hind him, was acquired from the Browns for a No. 2 1973 draft
choice the Giants previously had obtained in a transaction with
the New England Patriots.
The Giants expect both Gregory and Summers to hold down
starting positions, Gregory filling the spot vacated when Fred
Dryer played out his option and left the club and Summers fitting
in at the left cornerback spot.
* PHILADELPHIA - The Philadelphia Phillies dealt ace left-
hand reliever Joe Hoerner and a minor league first baseman to the
Atlanta Braves yesterday for pitchers Jim Nash and Gary Neibauer.
It was the second deal in less than 24 hours by new Phillies'
general manager Paul Owens, who Wednesday night traded
catcher Tim McCarver to the Montreal Expos for catcher John
Owens considers it the start of an overall shakeup in the Phil-
lies, a club that has been a National League doormat for the past
six years. Owens became Phillies' general manager June 3, suc-
ceeding John Quinn.
* DUBLIN - Irish bettors were hopping mad yesterday
after a race in which some fans swore the horses went backwards.
The race - The Gallinule Stakes over 10 furlongs at the
Curragh Wednesday night - was billed as a major trial for the
important Irish Sweeps Derby July 1. But none of the jockeys on
the four high class thorough-breds entered wanted to take the lead.
The horses went slower and slower and the bettors got wild-
er and wilder.
Fans booed and slow handelapped as the horses maintained a
gentle canter. Then several yards from the post, Bog Road made a
sudden spurt to beat Ballymore, the hot favorite, by four lengths.
That did it. When the jockeys unsaddled after the race, the
crowd surrounded them and refused to let the riders out for the
next race.
Bettors- waited their money back and officials held an in-
quiry but later announced there was nothing they could do un-
der existing rules,

big and have rippling muscles.

an exaggeration. But I've seen
plenty who had the physique
but not the intangibles."
Oosterbaan had the intan-
gibles -- leadership, inspira-
tion, spirit, enthusiasm, con-
fidence, desire and the big
one, talent.
With that talent, primarily
an ability to catch passes, he
became the only three-time All-
American player in UM's foot-
ball history.
That began a 48-year stretch
of building UM tradition as an
athlete, coach and administra-
The tradition likely will re-
main. But, effective July 1,
Oosterbaan no longer will be
connected officially with it.
Oosterbaan, 66, has been in
athletic public relations for the
Wolverines, having moved to
the front office in 1959 after 11
years as head football coach.
"I'm going to miss it, ob-
viously," Oosterbaan said, re-
sponding to a question he has
answered many times since it
was revealed he is retiring.
"After all, I've been coming
down here one way or another
for 48 years."
Among the lesser known of
his achievements is his .489
baseball batting average that
led the Big Ten one season. He

also was an All-American bas-
ketball player.
TRACK BUFFS say he could
have been an Olympic champ if
he had pursued that sport. He
was the state champion high
school discus thrower at Mus-
kegon, where he was born and
raised - a first-generation
American of Dutch heritage.
In football, he was one half of
the Benny-to-Bennie combina-
tion, hauling in dozens of key
passes from quarterback Benny
Friedman, another UM All-
His grid accomplishments put
him on The Associated Press

1951. Several years ago, the Na-

UM alumni and friends, Bennie
was named the school's great-
est football player in history.
That was some 42 years after
the late Henry Hatch, equip-
ment manager, retired his No.
47 jersey, saying: "Nobody's
ever going to make All-Ameri-
can three years running again.
I'm not going to give Bennie's
number out."
While he was Michigan's
head football coach for 100
games from 1948 through
1958, his teams won 63, lost
33 and tied 4. His teams won

Oosterbaan's parents no long-

living sisters, his wife, Del, and
a daughter.
Asked what advice he would
give young pe'ople, he said:
