Drill On Defense Against Michigan State Plays

n

_..t. I

Varsity Stops
Aerial Attack
Of Freshmen
Regeczi Back In Uniform;
Limbers Up On Passing
And Punting Practice
Concentrating entirely on defensive
tactics, the Wolverine Varsity foot-
ball team went through one of its last
practices before the season opener
against Michigan State Saturday.
The outlook was brightened consid-
erably by the return of John Regeczi,r
stellar punter of the squad, to active
service.
Regeczi was hurt in scrimmage a
little more than two weeks ago, and
has been excluded from practice ses-
sions ever since. Yesterday he limb-
ered up, getting off some long punts
that were good for more than forty
yards.
A selected freshman team ran off
Michigan State plays, which the Var-
sity successfully and consistently
blocked. As it is expected that the
State offensive will be built chiefly
around an aerial attack, pass defense
was stressed in yesterday's drill. Mey-
ers, who played at end in place of
Savage, and Ford, the Maize and
Blue center, intercepted several, while
Patanelli starred in knocking them
down. Regeczi, playing with the
freshmen, tossed the passes.j
Ward Practices Kickoff
That much is expected of Ward in
offensive as well as defensive play
is evidenced by the fact that he is
still practicing kicking off and ball
carrying.
Standing more than 50 yards from
the gdal posts, the rangy star kicked
the distance easily time after time
with perfect precision: Several would
have been good for field goals, sail-
ing straight between the uprights
well beyond the end-zones.
Yesterday's line-up, though much
the same as in previous drills this
week, had a few changes. Replacing
Savage at left end, Meyers performed
creditabily in the role of defense man.
Ford and Fuog alternated at center,
with Ford starting. Ward at the
other end, Viergiver and Austin,
tackles, and Hiliebrand and Borg-
mann at the guard posts completed
the line.
In the backfield, Oliver, Triplehorn,
Patanelli and Remias got the call,
with Triplehorn playing safety.
Alternating with Triplehorn was
Aug, and when running signals,
Regeczi replaced Remias.
Dean One Of Best
Says Ted Petoskey
After Facing Dizzy
"That 'Dizzy' isn't so dizzy," said
Ted Petoskey yesterday afternoon as
he and Whitey Wistert, former. star
Michigan athletes, who, at the close
of the National League season, re-
turned to Ann Arbor Tuesday in the
role of coaches, answered some ques-
tions regarding their experiences with
the Cincinnati Reds.
"Dean may be dizzy off the dia-
mand," went on Petoskey, "but when
he's pitching he's one of the smartest
in the league. And besides that he's
got everything, physically, that a
pitcher needs."
Then the former Michigan three-
sport star added that he had batted
against the National League pitching
leader twice, that he struck out the
first time and rolled to the infield

STAR *
DUST
*--By ART CARSTENS-C
DETROIT, Oct. 3-This town isn't
nearly as light-hearted tonight as it
was 24 hours ago. The Deans and
their supporting cast have appeared
and have the situation well in hand.
The terrible Dizzy was only a myth
24 hours ago, but tonight he is a
brim reality. The natives are afraid
that Frisch will start him again to-
day.
** * * * * ~
The only ray of hope in the
lodge of the defeated tonight is
the name of Schoolboy Rowe.
The El Dorado Merriwell will
probably oppose Paul Dean to-
morrow and if he can't do the
trick! well, the Detroit fans won't
even bother to tune in St. Louis
on Friday.

AL SCHACT, Washington funny-
man played third base for the Tig-
ers during batting practice, wearing
baseball pants, a tail coat and a top
hat. He showed his versatility by
directing Finzel's justly-famous band
in "The Man On the Flying Trapeze"
while a host of burly ground-keepers
were polishing the dirt off the base-
lines before the start of the game.
* *~ * * * *
One picture was taken which,
I feel sure, will not be published
-not today at least. It was of a
Tiger (Schact wrapped in a TigerG
skin) beginning to devour the
the Cardinal hurler. All the de-
vouring done today was by Dean
and his mates.
THE LOUDEST "BOO" of the day
went up from the two bleacher
sections when Ty Tyson announced
that the game was being delayed to
allow holders of reserved seat tickets
to get into their places. Most of the
bleacherites had been in their seats
for three or four hours and couldn't
see waiting 15 minutes longer for
some dilettante box-holder to drag
himself away from a hot lunch.
* * * * * *
HOW THESE Tiger fans can
be the worst of sports and the
best sports in the same afternoon
is a mystery to me. The bleach-
erites yell as loud as they can
when a Tiger hits a fly to the
outfield in the vain hope of mak-
ing the Card outfielder drop the
ball-which isn't exactly good
sportsmanship. But they were
Dean, I think, throws the ball fast-

yesterday in the third inning when
he thought Umpire Brick Owen had
ruled incorrectly on a pitch to Jo Jo
White. The decision had made the
pount three and two, and Dean, af-
ter glaring at Owen for a moment,,
ascended the mound and whipped,
the ball in so fast that White didn't
see it. He had to wait until Owen

the second time.
Concerning the difference between
collegiate and major league pitching,
Whitey Wistert, who managed to get
in eight innings of hurling for the
Reds before the end of the season,
said that the chief difference was
that the big league pitchers are
smarter. "Stuff" is taken for granted.
The pitcher's job is to keep the ball
on the corners and to pitch to the

batter's weaknesses.
Wistert On Way
Wistert, by the way, seems "on the
way" with the Reds. He hurled one

Here is Ernie Orsatti, who started in center field for the St. Louis Cardinals yesterday, scoring the first
run of the 1934 World Series between the Cards and the Detroit Tigers. Orsatti reached first when he singled
to left, took second on Gehringer's error and third on an error by Owen. Rothrock then drove a hard single to
center to score Orsatti as well as Dizzy Dean who was on second. Manager Mickey Cochrane of the Tigers is
also shown in the picture. Boss Mike is standing silently by while the Cards opened the scoring of the big
series. Orsatti committed the only two errors that were made by the Cardinals. He was relieved by Fullis in
the eighth, after he hurt his leg diving for Greenberg's hit in the sixth.

ing forward to the largest and most
successful season it has had in years.
'The volleyball tourney is the first of

nore fraternities have filed entance

Heading the fall sports as it does,
speedball is probably responsible for
the general rise in enthusiasm for
intramural athletics among the gen-
eral student body this year. Up to
the present date 400 more lockers in
;the I-M building have been engaged
than were taken during 1933-34.
Fall interfraternity competition will
soon commence in handball, wrest-
;ing, and dual swimming. Cross
country will start about the 21st of
October and volleyball a week earlier.
Fraternities should enter their
teams in all events to give them a
better chance of winning the title.

In the third it was Collins who
scored for the Cardinals. He was safe
at first when Medwick was forced at
second, Greenberg to Rogell. Rogell
attempted a double play but his throw
to first was wild and Collins contin-
ued to second on the error. Collins
smashed one between Greenberg's
legs, another error being recorded on
the play, and Collins scored from
second. Orsatti and Durocher- flied

Joe Medwick slapped one into the

in the fifth for the Cardinals' fourth
run. It was his third hit in three
times up but did not have quite the
distance that Greenberg's eighth in-
ning circuit clout had.
With Fred Marberry going to the
mound for Detroit in the sixth the'
Cards proceeded to pound out enough
hits to send four men across the plate
before the inning was over.
Dizzy Starts It
The Dizzy one himself led off the
inning with a double to left center.
Martin drove Dean home with a
single past Gehringer. Rothrock sac-
rificed Martin to second. Owen took
Frisch's foul in front of the left field
boxes for the second out. Medwick
pounded a single to center and Mar-
tin scored. Collins sent Medwick to
third with a one base smash into
right.
"Chief" Hoggsett, Tiger southpaw,
was sent in for Marberry and his first
pitch to DeLancey was hit over Gos-
lin's head for two bases, Medwick and
Collins scoring. Orsatti grounded
out and the Cardinal scoring for the
day was ended. In the last three in-
,nings Hogsett allowed the Redbirds
but two hits after they had collected
11 in the first six frames.
