throw grapefruit.
The Tigers winning a game is big
news even in the grapefruit league
inasmuch as it is strictly a case of
the well-known man biting the
equally w.k. dog as they say in the
journalism classes. In fact, I would
say that when the Tigers win a game
it should be national sporting news
and I am hereby recording it.
USUALLY the pieces in the Detroit
papers regarding the Tigers are
devoted to excuses for the 'lads, and
how so-and-so did not get a hit be-
cause at the time when the final
strike crosses the rubber it so hap-
pens that he is scratching his left
ear . . . or how relief pitcher Oscar
Smeech is having trouble with hold-
ing his mouth right today so he
promptly gets knocked out of the
box and practically back to Kanka-
kee at one fell swoop.
All this may sound as though I
doubt the Tigers' ability to' win the
pennant that a lot of optimists pre-
dict for this year. But it is all due
to bitter experience. Detroit is a good
baseball town and has a reputation
for hauling in good gates, and my
own personal reaction to the state of
affairs is that the cash customers,
so faithful for so long, finally deserve
a break.
WELL MAYBE they are getting a
break this year. Nobody will
know until the season is well under,
way. After all, you never can tell
what will happen even to a bad ball
club. Satisticians say that if you put
fifty monkeys into a room and set
them to pounding fifty typewriters
with an unlimited supply of paper,
one of them will probably turn out

Of course, the monkeys would all
be dead by that time, but maybe the

Maranville Breaks His
Leg In Exhibition Game
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., March 28.
-MP)-Walter (Rabbit) Maranville,
veteran Boston Braves infielder, suf-
fered a multiple fracture of the left
leg today in the eighth inning of the
exhibition game between the Braves
and New York Yankees.
Attempting to score from third on
a double steal, Maranville crashed
into Norman Kies, Yankee catcher,
breaking his left leg between the
ankle and knee. Maranville was cred-
ited with scoring the run that tied
the score at three all. The game was
called soon after he was taken to the
Mound Park Hospital.
The fracture could easily be de-
termined before the little veteran was
carried from the park. Temporary
splints of heavy straw board were
placed around the leg pending the
arrival of the ambulance.

yesterday are that

races in years will develop between

igan with no one of these conceded
the edge over the others. News that
the Trojans were already in the mid-
dle west, having left Los Angeles last
week, removes the possibility of
Michigan and Yale running away
with the meet. Other teams that may
prove dangerous are Rutgers, Prince-
ton, and Northwestern.
Stories in the Daily Trojan indi-
cate that the far westerners feel that
they have the meet in the bag, and
well they may, with a well-balanced
team headed by Jimmy Gihula, sen-
sational sophomore who was just de-
clared eligible last week. Gihula, for-
mer Detroit Southeastern star, swims
every free style event from the 100
to the 440 in near record time, hold-
ing records in the 100 and 400 meter
events. In other events the Trojans
have Kaye, in the backstroke, Paul-
son, former Olympic swimmer, in the
breaststroke, and Gene Fletcher in
the 50-yard sprint. With such an ar-
ray of versatile stars the California
outfit is bound to
have a hot medley
relay and their
free style relay
team is the best on
the Coast.

Taylor Drysdale will have his

Paulson, Southern California, and
Savell, of Yale, will be after Don

ord breaking events of the meet.
In the freestyle distance events

star of the northwest and may take

The following is a summary of the
events: 100 yard free style, R. Els-

Fisher To Take
Six Hurlers On
Training Tour'
Mentor Hopes To Be Able
To Get Outdoors Before
Spring Trip Starts
Coach Ray Fisher will take 16
baseball players East on April 8 and4
six of the squad will be pitchers.
Since the Varsity nine will play a
total of seven games in eight days,
it will be necessary to carry this
number of hurlers in order that none
of the hurling staff will be over-
worked during the Eastern trip.
Just who the half dozen pitchers
will be Coach Fisher has not decided
as he hopes to be able to get out-of-
doors for two or three days before
leaving in order to get a better line
on the material.
It is hard to determine accurately
the capabilities of the players in-
doors, Fisher said, because so many
baseball men look better after they
get outside, and others appear to be
Varsity material inside then turn out
to be just ordinary players when they
finally show their stuff on the field.
If the ground is clear of snow be-
fore April 8, Fisher is determined to
get the squad outside, even if they
are only able to work out on the
grass. "This is the latest spring I can
remember in the 14 years I have been
here," Fisher said, "and I'm hoping
the weather will clear so we can get
out for at least two or three days."
The Michigan mentor has a more
pressing reason for wanting to get
out on South Ferry Field now that
George Ford, who was considered al-
most a certainty for the hot corner,
has broken the small bone in his leg.
In order to find some player to fill
in at third, Fisher wants to work out
on the diamond so he can shift the
players around in an effort to deter-
mine the best infield combination.
Clayt Paulson, who held down
third last year until he suffered an
injury to his thumb, may be shifted
from the catching assignment to the
infield. Another possibility for the
position vacated by Ford is Russ
Oliver, who may get the call when
the Wolverines open the 1934 sched-
ule against Colgate, April 9.
Benny Friedman former All-Amer-
ican quarterback at Michigan has se-
lected the coaching staff which will
assist him next year at the College
of the City of New York. They are
Paul Riblett, former University of
Pennsylvania end as end coach, Dr.
Joe Alexander, former All-American
center at Syracuse as line coach, and
Mike Michalske who played profes-
sional football with Friedman on the
New York Giants as the other line
