Courtright issued notice to members
of both Varsity and freshman squads

Big Ten meet at Evanston, May 20
and 21, and the National Intercolle-
giates after the close of school.

golfers to select from for the number
four position, including Captain Cal.
Markham, Dana Seeley, Carrol Sweet,
Larry David, captain of the hockey
team, Allan Saunders and Bill Grif-
fiths, the 1935 team should be even
stronger than last year.
Perhaps the tightest battle in the
last decade will take place at the
Congressional Country Club when
strong teams like Georgia Tech, Louis-
iana State, Yale, Leland Stanford,
and Notre Dame attempt to lift the
crown which the Wolverines will be

Dizzy And Paul Discuss Season's Outlook

BASEBALL experts adjudge a bat-
tery to be seventy per cent of a
nine's defensive strength. Pitchers are
usually regarded as being more val-
uable to a team than their battery
mate, but Mickey Cochrane, manager
and catcher of the Detroit Tigers,
demonstrated last year just how in-
dispensable a good catcher is to a
team's winning habits.
In other years, the Tigers were just
as strong or stronger than they were
last year in all departments save
catching, but they never won a pen-
nant. Cochrane called every pitch,
and he knew what to call for because
the Tiger hurlers seldom shook him
off, his accurate arm relieved his
pitchers of the tension of operating
under conditions which are favorable
to base stealers, and finally he dished
out a line of spirited gab which bol-
stered his hurlers courage.
Pitchers on this year's squad
who were starting out two years
ago, throwing to Mike Diffley,
Michigan's last good catcher, aver
that they were much more effec-
tive while pitching with Mike do-{
ing the receiving.
They had confidence in Diffley's
judgment and throwing arm. These
same pitchers didn't have the same
confidence in Michigan's catcher last
year with the result that the pitchers
who only lost two Conference games
the year Diffley caught, lost six last
year, despite the fact that they were
pitching for a much stronger hitting
With the importance of a catcher
in mind, we are wondering who is go-
ing to do the catching for Michigan
this season. Judging by last year's
freshman and Varsity nine's records,
hearsay, sentiment around the train-
ing camp, The Daily's baseball critic,
and our own observations, Coach
Fisher has, potentially, at least three
good out-fielders, six efficient infield-
ers, a good staff of hurlers, but a ques-
tion mark where the backstop squats.
Five men, who range from last
year's football captain to a hockey
right winger, are candidates for
the job. But none of them na-
turally possess the qualities at-
tributed to Cochrane. Kim Wil-
liams, sophomore who was first
string catcher for the freshman
last year, is a likely prospect to
win the Varsity post, mainly by
virtue of superior hitting. He bats
left handed and is far and above
the best hitter among the catch-
Whether he can size up opposing
batter's weaknesses, inspire pitchers
with confidence and throw to the
bases, will soon become apparent.
Harold Parker, reserve catcher last
year, Tom Austin, last year's grid
captain, Dick Berryman, hockey play-
er and catcher on last year's fresh-
man, and "Joe" Rosen, who played
freshman ball, are pressing Williams
for the regular job, probably rating
in the order named. None of them
have yet shown rifle arms, but Mich-
igan's pitchers are hoping one of
them turns out to be a catcher a la

Tigers Win Exhi
Over Phillies
LAKELAND, Fla., March 16 -(P)-
The Detroit Tigers opened their exhi-
bition schedule today with a 15-3 vic-
tory over the Phillies.
Working behind the hurling of Al-
vin Crowder and Clyde Hatter the
bludgeoning Tigers connected for 17
hits. Despite the presence of three
rookies in the lineup, the Tigers
fielded smoothly with only one error
chalked against them.
Hank Greenberg led the attack. In
five trips to the plate he hit four
times, once for the circuit. Crowder
was nicked for three hits in five in-
nings, and Hatter, the Louisville re-
cruit, for two in four. Wilson used
four hurlers in a vain attempt to stop
the champions.
