Michigan Man, , , .
AS ONE GROWN from that class
of American youngsters that
haunts the vacant lots and plays a
variety of baseball between the bill-
board over in the corner and the ditch
at one end, I desire today to pay
tribute to a man who influenced pro-
foundly my years between nine and
There are "greats" and "near-
greats" in professional baseball, whose
example is daily set before a huge
number of youngsters who accompany
Dad to the ball park on the after-
noons off . . . or who belong to the
"knot-hole gang." I wonder if Cobb,.
Speaker, Ruth and company, or their
younger counterparts realize just how
much influence they have on the boy
in short pants who reads books on
how to pitch, and exults to the depths
of his being at the first pitched ball
that looks even a trifle crooked?
My particular idol was George Sis-
ter, who played a fine game at first
base for the St. Louis Browns during
the earlier twenties; George Sisler, the
Michigan man, who used to pitch for
the Maize and Blue. I can still re-
member wondering vaguely just where
Ann Arbor was after having received
that answer as the location of the
University of Michigan.
(QISLER WILL.ALWAYS be a great
ball players to me, no matter how
he stands in the Valhalla established
by experts. When there were two out,
a man on second, and the Brown
needed a run badly, George would step
up to the plate and hit one out quite
consistently. He was a timely batter.
There was another thing about Sis-
ter. I never saw him question an um-
pirc's decision. I can still remember
him coming up out of the dust at
first base, and grinning at the blue-
clad arbiter who was ruling him out
(Ie developed the technique of slid-
ing into first base). From this, I de-
veloped the axiom: "Michigan mier
don't argue with the umpire. They arc
This hero-worship continued up to
the year when Sisler's great tragedy
developed. In the prime of his career
he was taken with an attack of sinus
which seriously and permanently af-
fected his eyes. Despite several opera-
tiins, Sisler never recovered his bat-
ting eye and ultimately left the game
But no matter what they say about
his record, no matter what players
I'll ee in the future George Sisler
wil lalways be tIhe greatest ball player
that ever lived, to me.

Big "Whitey" Wistert lost a no-hit game Tommy Bridges fashion
yesterday in the game between Ohio and Michigan at Ferry Field when,
with two down in the ninth, Clowson of the Buckeyes hit a hard single
between short and third. Wistert was in excellent form, fanning the first
nine men tot'ace him and amassing a total of 10 strikeouts over the nine-
inning stretch. B0sides that he hit a triple.

At Columbus Today
Four Michigan netters left with
Coach Johnny Johnstone yesterday
afternoon for Columbus, Ohio, where
they hope to win an easy m&tch from
the Buckeye tennis team today.
Michigan should win handily from
Ohio State for the following reasons.
Michigan State during a recent tour
of Ohio colleges defeated the Buck-
eyes by the submersive score of 9 to
0. Michigan State is of approxi-
mately the same ability as Michigan,
because they downed the Wolverines
only by coming out on the odd end of
a 5 to 4 score. And as further proof
the Spartans crushed Oberlin College
8 to 1, while Michigan defeated the
same team, 9 to 0.
The four players who will repre-
sent Michigan at Columbus are Dan
Kean, Sam Siegel, Joe Appelt, and
Howard Kahn, who will appear in
that order of ranking. The doubles
combinations will be Kean and Kahn,
Siegel and Appelt.
By ART SETTLEl
It looks like Michigan is a very
good home team. The Wolverines, in1
four home games to date, defeated
Michigan State, Illinois, Michigan
Normal, and trounced the Buckeyes
yesterday, 13 to 1.

Wistert seems to be headed for the
big leagues. He pitched brilliant ball
to defeat Illinois, last Saturday, limit-'
ing the Illini to one run and three
hits. Yesterday he hurled what was
undoubtedly the best game of ball'
ever pitched on Ferry Field. Coach
Ray Fisher predicted last year that
Wistert would be a great college
hurler, and "Whitey" is bearing out
Although Michigan piled up an
early lead, every fan in the park wait-
edl until the last man was out. They
wanted to see Wistert pitch a no-run,
no-hit game, and they would have
seen it, if Clowson hadn't singled to
left with two out in the ninth. Some
spectators may think harshly of Clow-
son, but he was a real ball player
and did the correct thing in trying to
hit. Wistert threw him a fast ball
around the knees, which was a bit oo
near the middle, and Clowson lined
the ball between short and third.
Wistert's performance was so spec-
tacular that the one hit detracted
little from the credit due him. He
struck out 16 batters, more than any
Michigan pitcher ever achieved be-
fore. He fanned the first nine men to
face him which is something in the
way of a college record.
* * *
The second game of the series will
start this afternoon at 2:30 p.m. Art
Patchin will start for the Wolverines,
and Williams will hurl for Ohio State.
Both pitchers were driven from the
mound early in the games, in the
series at Columbus.
