KALAMAZOO COLLEGE TO
PLAY HERE ON APRIL 27
Michigan baseball fans have again
begun to hope for another Conference
baseball championship with the ad-
vent of Coach Fisher and the over-
whelming victory over Purdue last
Saturday. Against the Boilermakers,
Michigan did better than in either
game last year, and with a game
with kalamazoo college Wednesday
to prime the nine for the Notre Dame
contest Saturday and the second Pur-
due battle Saturday, the Wolverines
should soon be rounding into top form.
The main worry of the Michigan
baseball team is pitchers. There are
five likely looking hurlers in Ruzicka,
Dixon, Liverance, Schultz, and Mudd4
but with theexception of Big Ed, they
are practically untried. Coach Fish-
er'k big job is to make first ,rate hurl-
era of these men. He has been work-_
Ling on them ever since he joinel thel
Wolverines' and it looks as if he 'may
If two of these five men can come
through with a little more than aver-
age stuff, Michigan's chances for the
"Big 'Ten title will be o ,a par with
those of Illinois andOhi, ,At the first
of the season Ruzicka looked like
Michigan's best bet, but in two out of
the three games he has strted he has
been wild. His main asset, a steam-
ing fast ball, is of pajrticular value in
Conference baseball, for the Big Ten
batters are weak' in hitting fast ones.
Fisher has been workingo nEd's wild-
ness, aud it is possible tat he can get
the big pitcher over his trouble.
The other men hate considerable
stuff. To date Dixon has pitched the
nicest ball, the climax being againste
Purdue when he went, six and two-
thirds innings with just one hit being
made of him. Liverance is close be-
hind him, but hashnot had so much
experience.: Livy has control, ad a
world of nerve besides . neat curve
and a fast one. Dick S hultz is also
a nice pitcher, and wh .1 he learns a
few more of the fine' points of the
hurling art from Fisher, he will be a
valuable Nman. Mudd hasa had little
chance to show his worth, but against
the 'weak Y'psilanti opposition he
pitched a good game.
If the pitching staff comes along in
good shape, Michigan will present a
formidable nine. The batting to date
has been far above that of - former
years. The Wolverines batted Wagner
and Wallace; of.Purdue, for more hits
Saturday than did the 1920 team in
either of, two games, and Di~on; and
Ricka* held the Boilermakers to few-
or hits than did Parks, Ruzicka, and
Seheidler last year.
The fielding alsq improved against
Purdue despite the muddy field, only
one error being chalked against Mich-
igan, and with continued improvement
in all three departments, the Wolver-
ine ne will have to be reckoned with
,it. sriously. 4
