Rookie Infield
Candidates Are
Promising Lot
Coach Fisher Has Not Yet
Picked Lineup, Despite
Veteran Material
Michigan's spring training camp
abounds with the largest number of
capable rookie and reserve infielders
in years. But just like the Detroit
Tigers with a veteran infield of
Greenberg, Gehringer, Rogell and
Owen,, this will be a tough season for
rookie infielders to break into Mich-
igan's regular lineup.
Four returning veterans, including
Capt. Russ Oliver, Clayt Paulson, Jack
Teitelbaum, Joe Lerner, and a poten-
tially great third baseman, George
Ford, share the opinion that they will
form the best fielding inner garden
that Wolverine fans have seen in a
long time.
Plan"Farm System"
But Coach Fisher asserts that any
of the newcomers who show enough
ability will get a regular assignment.
In the event that lack of experience
will force the recruits into the back-
ground this season, Coach Fisher in-
tends to mould them into a machine
by frequent clashes with Coach Ben-
nie Oosterbaan's freshmen, in order
that they will function next year
when at least three replacements will
be necessary.
Harry Verbeek is probably the best
prospect among the new infielders,
Kim Verbeek and Williams, a catcher,
were the heavy hitters on last year's
freshman nine. Verbeek is an all-
around player, being an equally adept
fielder at third, short or second. If
the outfield doesn't stack up to pre-
season dope, Verbeek may be turned
into an outfielder.
Have Numerous Sophomores
Other likely looking infielders are
Steve Remias, the plunging fullback,
who plays third, short or second and
murders outside balls, Ferris Jen-
nings, the quarterback, who is pur-
ported to be a good fielding short-
stop: Carl Ferner, another shortstop,

JOHN REGECZI, whom Coach Fish-t
er rates as No. 1 outfielder among
the returning veterans on this year's
baseball squad, never played the
game in high school. Everything he
learned about baseball he learned at
It was only last season, as a junior,
that the Muskegon Mauler worked
into the starting line-up and estab-
lished himself as a dependable fly-
chaser, a consistent .300 hitter, and
a slugger to be considered in the same
class with Whitey Wistert and Ted
Petoskey. It was a hard climb from
greenhorn to star, but Regeczi was
destined to reach his goal, with a
natural ability that needed only care-

who was a good hitter on the fresh-
man nine two years ago, but ineligible
last year; Hackenberger, who won
numerals as a second baseman on the
frosh, two years ago, but was also in-
eligible; Earl Meyers, whom the De-
troit boys swear is a good third base-
man, and Matt Patanelli, first base-
Patanelli has already made goodz
in football and basketball his first
year, and his supporters claim base-
ball is next for the rugged sophomore
to take in his stride. Patanelli hasn't
played much baseball, but observers
says he's the same type of ballplayer
as John Regeczi. When Regeczi first
reported two years ago, he was far
from the player he is now, having only
a powerful batting stance. Patanelli
is now in the same stage, but his nat-
ural athletic ability should quicken
his evolution.
"Mike" Miller, shortstop, and
George Bolas, second baseman, who
bats from both sides of the plate, are
reserves from last year who show
promise for the future.
These are the boys whom Fisher
might "farm out" for a little season-
ing, in the event they don't make
the grade this year.


ful maturation by Fisher, the ex-
Cincinnati hurler.
Regeczi was third ranking hitter in
last year's outfield which included
Michigan's leading batters, Petoskey,
and Avon Artz; but he was the fast-
est outfielder of the trio. Petoskey
covered more ground than Regeczi,
chiefly because he could get started
quicker and could judge a fly ball
better, but when John happened to
get off with the crack of the bat he
could travel farther for a ball than
Petoskey ever thought of going. j
Regeczi will probably be Michigan's
leading hitter this year, unless Clayt
Paulson or Russ Oliver improve upon
last year's averages. It is difficult to
predict how a college ball club will
hit with the schedule containing
about 25 ball games. But it is fairly
certain that Regeczi will rate the dis-
tinction of hardest hitter among the
Wolverines. He still has a tendency
to swing at bad balls, but if learns
to wait for the one he likes, as Petos-
key and Artz did, there is no telling
how far he will go.
MICHIGAN'S forthcoming baseball
campaign would be greatly en-
hanced if John Gee, the sophomore
question mark, should suddenly de-
velop into a capable hurler. By a
capable college hurler we mean one
who has a fast ball and a curve and
enough control to keep the pill over
the plate. Gee has the physical
set-up required to make a good pitch-
er, but he lacks full growth and ex-
Fisher, though, is not expecting
much from the six-foot eight-inch
giant until his senior year. Wistert,
something of Gee's prototype, took
two years of Varsity play to develop
into the pitcher who hurled a one-
hit game in his third year of service.

The Purple quintet took the lead
in the opening minute of play when
Dick Leggett sank a hook shot from
the pivot position. From this stage of
the game the Vikings completely out-
played the Ann Arbor team to run up
a 26 to 7 lead at the end of the first
half. Freddy Trosko led the visitors'
attack in the first period to score
13 points as a result of clean breaking
plays under the opponent's basket.
The Vikings defense, as brilliant as
their fast-breaking offense, limited
the Shawmen to three field goals and
one charity shot.

Twenty Teams To Enter
Interfraternity Relays
Intramural Athletic Director Earl
Riskey yesterday announced that he
has received twenty team entries for
the annual Interfraternity Relays to
be run off in Yost Field House next
Thursday at seven in the evening. He
also announced a fraternity foul-
throwing contest for Tuesday and
Thursday evenings at the same time.
The feature of the relay meet will
be the assault upon Phi Kappa Sig-
ma's record of 1:38 2/5 for the half
mile relay set in 1929.
Each contestant in the foul throw-
ing contest has two rounds of 25 shots.
The highest ten rounds will be count-
ed in computing team totals. Last
year 181 was the winning score. Be-
between four and five hundred will
compete this year.

Battle Creek triumphed for the sixth
consecutive year with 25 points, nearly
twice the total of Fordson, their near-
est competitor.
In the 220-yard free-style Peters of
Fordson took an early lead and fin-
ished up a length of the field in 2:24.2,
three-tenths of a second lower than
the old mark. Hudler of Battle Creek
nosed out Klavitter of Ypsilanti Cen-
tral as he set a new record of 1:12.4
in the 100-yard breast-stroke and
Battle Creek's medley relay team eas-
ily won in the record time of 1:28.7.
In other events Ehle of Ypsilanti
Central put on a nice exhibition to
repeat his victory of last year and
Dzioba of Battle Creek won the 100-
yard back stroke, closely followed
by Burke of Ypsilanti Roosevelt. Carr
of University High, swimming in the
100-yard free style, was the only local
boy to take a first.
