Sixteen Major
League Teams
Begin Season
Warneke Shuts Out Reds,
Giving One Hit; Tigers
Defeat WhiteSox, 8-3
The American and National Lea-
gues began the 1934 pennant race;
yesterday before a combined crowd
of 183,000 fans. The largest crowd
watched the New York Giants, the
world's champions, drub the Phillies
6 to 1. Hubbell allowed only four
hits. Lon Warneke of the Cubs de-
feated the Reds at Cincinnati 6 to 0
giving only one hit. Although out-
hit, Boston dropped the Brooklyn
Dodgers, 8 to 7, after the losers
scored three runs in the last inning.
St. Louis led the Senior League in
hitting with 13 blows to defeat Pitts-
burgh's Pirates, 7 to 1.
In the American League the De-
troit Tigers handed Manager Coch-
rane a welcoming present when they
defeated'Chicago 8 to 3. Washington,
pennant winners last year, had to
work for 12 innings before Boston
gave in and allowed the Senators to
win 6 to 5. Six pitchers were used
before the game was completed. Phil-
adelphia's Athletics surprised the
hard-hitting Yankees and defeated
them 6 to 5, pushing over two runs
in the last half of the final inning.
Hildebrand pitched Cleveland to a
7 to 1 victory over the Browns at St.

Regeczi Shows His
Pigskin Punting To
Colgate Grid squad
That the punt of Michigan's "punt,
pass and prayer" will play a promi-
nent part in the 1934 football season
was ably demonstrated by John Re-
geczi, Wolverine kicker, during spring
Regeczi was a member of the Mich-
igan baseball team which split a two-
game series with Colgate Universitf
at Hamilton, N. Y. Andy Kerr, the
Colgate football coach heard about his
presence there and asked Regeczi to
give a few pointers to the Colgate.
The new style football which will
become official in 1934 was brought
out and John borrowed a pair of foot-
ball shoes. The shoes were different
than the ones he usually kicks with,
having hard toes while the Michigan
punter generally uses a soft toe shoe.
However, despite this handicap and
the fact that he had not practiced
since the end of last football season
Regeczi averaged over 70 yards and
then gave a remarkable exhibition of
spot kicking by placing most of his
kicks within the five-yard line.
When asked about the new ball
which is about a half inch shorter
than the one used in previous seasons,
Regeczi said that it seemed to fit into
his foot much more easily than the
old one did. It also is easier to grip for
forward passing and a more wide open
game may result from it.

Against Eastern Teams p
Coach Ray Fisher sent his ball
team through an intensive fielding I
drill yesterday on Ferry Field, in e
preparation for the Western State
game at Kalamazoo Thursday, and
the Conference openers against
Northwestern, Friday and Saturday, t
at Evanston.
The team, just returned from an
Eastern training trip, packs plenty
of power at the plate. In the five 1
games played to date, six of the
eight regulars have amassed batting
averages well over the coveted 300 1
mark. The batting percentages of
the team, excluding pitchers, follows:
Waterbor, 333, Artz, 363, Petoskey,
385, Oliver, 263, Wistert, 421, Paul-
son, 348, Regeczi, 333, Chapman, 211,
Lerner, 250.
Pitcher's Nemesis
The lusty manner in which the
boys slammed the ball, amazed East-
ern coaches, and played havoc with
opposing pitchers. In only one game
did an enemy hurler start and finish
a ball game against the marauding
Wolverines, and that happened in the
opening game against Colgate. Red
LaFlamme, who will join the New
York Yankees when he finishes school
in June, let Michigan down with three
runs and six hits.
Starting with the second Colgate
game, which Michigan won, 9-6, the
boys went on a hitting rampage. They
garnered 9 runs and 14 hits in the
second Colgate game, 15 runs and
18 hits in the Temple game, 11 runs
12 hits against Lehigh, and 9 runs
and 12 hits in the West Chester game.
Petoskey "Murders" Ball
Ted Petoskey achieved a seldom, if
ever, equalled feat, when he stretched
a string of consecutive hitting to nine
hits. Beginning in the second Col-
gate game, he hit safely in his last
four times at bat. In the Rutgers
game, which was called off in the
third inning with Michigan leading
3-2, Petoskey got a hit and a walk,
to run his string to five. Four hits
in his first four times at bat in the
Temple game gave him his nine
straight. He also hit five extra base
blows, including a home run, three
triples and a double.
Whitey Wistert's terrific hitting
won him the first base job when he
isn't pitching. He still ranks as the
first string Wolverine hurler.
. Tillotson, Fish Hurl Well
Harry Tillotson and Les Fish turned
in two fine pitching performances.
Harry hurled Michigan to its first
victory over the hard hitting Colgate
team, while Les held Lehigh to three
hits in the seven innings he pitched.
Patchin was the work horse of the
pitching staff. He saved a game for
the Maize and Blue with some fine
relief hurling against Lehigh, hurled
excellent relief ball against West
Chester Teachers, and started the
Rutgers game.
The best fielding play of the trip
was made by Clayt Paulson, Michi-
gan's second baseman. In the sec-
ond Colgate game, he dove for a hard

hit ground ball over. scond base,
knocked it down, and threw from a
prostrate position, to force a runner
at second.
Michigan's pitching wasn't as shaky
as the scores seem to indicate. The
loss of two games against Temple and
West Chester can be laid to loose
playing, and errors, committed main-
ly by the infield. With this fact in
mind, Coach Fisher was experiment-
ing with different infield combina-
tions in practice yesterday.
