Fifteen Players Headed By Coach
Fisher And Captain Corriden
To Make Annual Trip
Headed by Coach Ray Fisher and
Captain Don Corriden, the Michi-
gan. baseball team will leave Ann
Arbor at 9:00 o'clock tonight for
Cincinnati where the first game of
the spring training trip will be
played tomororw. Fifteen players
are making the trip accompanied
by Manager Robert Deo.
The Wolverines go South this
season in better shape than .in
many years, since the early spring
weather has enabled Coach Fisher
to have his men out of doors for
better than two weeks. While the
pitching staff of the club this sea-
son is not causing worries, the Jaunt
through the South is expected to
be a test of the real hitting strength'
Veterans Make Trip
Captain Don Corriden, Nebelung,
and Straub are making the trip as
the regular outfielders with Slagle
held in reserve. On the infield,.Mc.
Coy will be at first, Myron at see-
ond, Kubicek at shortstop and We-
intraub at third base. Reichman
and Truskowski are to share the
catching duties while the two aces,
McAfee and Asbeck will have pitch-
ing assistance from Kiegler, Mon-
tague 'and Compton.
A majority of last year's veter-
ans are again making the trip thisa
year, and it is probable that onlyl
two new men till be seen perform-l
ing in the lineup, Myron at sec-
ond, and Straub in the field. McCoy
saw service last year as a catcher1
but has been shifted to the first
base sack while Kubicek is back
in the infield after a year's ab-
sence; due to ineligibility. Kubicek
is a ,second baseman by trade but
has been shifted to short. Straubl
is another infielder, but Myron's
work so far has resulted in his be-
ing given preference on the infieldI
over the grid player who has gone,
into. the outfield.
Seven Games On. Card
Seven games are on the. south--
ern schedule this year, two each
with Vanderbilt, Clemson, and the'
University of Georgia with a single1
encounter listed with the Univer-
sity of Cincinnati tomorrow. This
is the same card as last year's, whenj
the team captured five out of the
seven engagements. Cincinnati
greeted the invading Wolverines
with a 7 to 3 defeat on a rain
soaked diamond and Vanderbilt re-
volted after losing the first game,
-to Michigan, 10 to 1, and came'
back to annex the final, 4 to 3:

Thistlethwaite is urging that all

"With only 10 days to make ready
for our first game next fall, we shall
attach more importance to spring

of the innovations will be the drill-

tions and plays to be used in our
games this fall."

Captain Bergelin And Ward Lead
Other Candidates In Quest
Of Varsity Positions
With two conference golf matches
scheduled for the third week after
vacation with Illinois and Purdue,
an attempt to arrange a series of
two matches with the Detroit Golf
Club's team is under way. The pro-
posed matches would be arranged
for the last week in April and
should aid materially in the selec-
tion of the varsity team.
The Detroiters always have boast-i
ed an unusually powerful team, and'
this year should prove no exception.
Addie Connor, diminutive star, a
Wolverine for three years will in all
probability see service against his
former teammates on the Detroit-
ers front. The former Varsity cap-
tain has figured prominently in the
play of the Detroit district asso-
ciation in the last few summers in
interclub and intercity competition.
Should these matches be success-
fully arranged, the task of selecting
men for the varsity positions would
be greatly facilitated. At the pres-
ent it seems as though only Cap-
tain Bergelin and Dave Ward, for-
mer Big Rapids star who is eligible
for Varsity competition for the first
time, are sure of team places.
Art Ahlstrom, the second return-
ing letterman who saw service on
last year's Varsity combination,
seems to lead the remainder of the
aspirants in the quest for the re-
maining three positions. Others who
will figure prominently in the battle
for team places are Livingston, an
AMA winner, Hand, Lewis, Hoover
and Hobart.

ning to divide the squad into two
regular teams, and have them play
a series of six games with the
Varsity. In previous years, he
added, the freshman squad has
played its games with the Varsity:

During intervening time when
the yearlings are not occupied
with the Varsity, they will have
practice games against teams from

Since Coach Elott made the re-

number of new men have shown
up and are making - the competi-
tion all the more keen for those
who have been out since the first
call. Also the freshmen are re-

the first cut will come one week
after vacation, they are playing a
better class of baseball.
