16-Man Squad For Southern Baseball Trip


Cinder Squad
To Travel Far
After Vacation
If perchance any of Michigan's
varsity trackmen are allergic to train
conductors or upper berths they'd
better condition themselves in a hur-
For Coach Ken Doherty's lads will
grab their traveling bags and do
plenty of roaming within the next
two months in an effort to extend
Wolverine spike prestige throughout
the nation. Included on the outdoor
track itinerary are such long jaunts
as Minneapolis, 'Des Moines, South
Bend, Palo Alto and Pasadena, Cali-
fornia, and even a round trip over to
Following spring vacation, the
Maize and Blue cindermen will swing
into action for the initial time in
the outdoor campaign April 25 and
26 in the famous Drake Relays at
Des Moines. There the Wolverines will
pit their strength against the best
track talent the Midwest and South-
east can offer, and also get a good
peek at some of the University of
Texas' relay teams which have been
busting records this spring as if they
were bronchos.
Next on the spikemen's slate is a
dual meet with Notre Dame on May
3, which promises to be one of the
season's highlights. A week later Ohio
State's powerful Buckeye crew will
invade Ferry Field for Michigan's
lone home meet which will provide a
stiff tuneup for the Big Ten cham-
pionships at Minneapolis.
And the Wolverines have some very
definite ideas about that Conference
conflict - ideas in which Campbell
Kane, Roy Cochran, Wayne Tolliver,
Archie Harris and the rest of the
Hoosier Horde occupy a prominent
role. Aiming for its fifth straight out-
door crown, Michigan will be primar-
ily concerned with avenging the de-
feat handed them by Indiana in the
indoor meet..
Following the annual Michigan
AAU meet in Ypsilanti, May 31, the
Maize and Blue squad winds up its
season with a pair of West Coast
meets, the Big Ten-Pacific Coast en-
counter and the National Collegiates.

CATCHER'S MITT in hand, the
"Great Gusto" Sharemet joined
Ray Fisher's pitching corps yesterday
Matt Mann's ace freestyler used
to hurl high school ball for Ham-
tramck and won five games without a
loss . . . "Two one-hitters and three
breezes" he modestly announces ...
He pitched against Bill Steppon's
city championship Western High nine
and held them runless until the ninth
"Their catcher got the only two
hits off me, and we licked them, 7-1"
claims the "Great Busto." . .. "I re-
member smacking out a clean single
myself and as I recall the score was
3-2" goes the Steppon version.
While Sharemet worked out with
the ball team, Jim Welsh romped
around the cinders with Ken Do-
herty's lads yesterday . . . Welsh
had no intentions of making the
team . . . "You gotta know how to
run when they start shooting bul-
lets at you" he optimistically ex-
plained himself . . . Talking about
the track, have you noticed the re-
markable resemblance between
Blazin' Bob Ufer and a certain liv-
er-lipped sports enthusiast ... Max
Bahrych, out for cross country run-
ning at the beginning of the year,
a member of the hockey team, and
recently a tryout for the baseball
squad, is now working out again
with the track forces . .. Incident-
ally, he is the villain that won the
race the Double recently ran in .. .
The scoundrel.
George Van, the Detroit Times
sports writer, came to Ann Arbor last
weekend to cover the swimming meet
and never saw a race . . . Before
each event, good Mike Peppe, the
Ohio State coach and a very great
pal of the Double's, plunked himself
on the press table directly in front
of Van and all George could do was
sit back and relax . . . Could you
imagine anything worse than travel-
ing 37 miles to watch Peppe's back
for a weekend? Miller Anderson, the
Chicago Towers Club youthful diver
who led the high board pack through
the required dives only to fade into
sixth place, works as an elevator boy
at the Towers Club ... It strengthens
his legs and aids in his spring, ex-
plains Coach Braunginger.
Sammy Lee swears that he could
have won the diving if "there was
just one Jap in there against me"
He learned how to dive by playing
follow-the-leader when he was a
kid . . . His father also went to
Occidental . . Swimmers are very
clean people. . . They used 550
towels during the meet . .Each
night all 550 had to be laundered
in preparation for the next day's
MICHIGAN BIDS goodbye to Port
Robertson this weekend . . . The
drawling Oklahoman who has served
as Cliff Keen's assistant during the
past four years, will not return af-
ter the spring vacation . . . It is rum-
ored that he has two good college
head coaching offers and will accept
one if the army does not sign him
before .,.Port was one of the great-
est wrestlers of his time and yet he
never became a national champ . . .
After defeating in dual competition
four men who later won titles, he
cracked his neck in his first national
tourney bid and was ncver the same

Six Moundsmen Chosen;
Goldsmith, Veigel Hurl
In Long Practice Game
Coach Ray Fisher announced a
16-man traveling squad for the spring
trip yesterday after putting his play-
ers through a long practice game on
the Ferry Field diamond. Six hurl-
ers will be among the players whoj
leave early Thursday morning for
College Park, Md., for their opener
with the University of Maryland Fri-
The squad includes pitchers Cliff
Wise, Mickey Stoddard, Paul Gold-
smith, Les Veigel, Neil Muir and
Mase Gould; infielders, Bill Steppon,
George Ruehle, Mike Sofiak, and
Bud Chamberlain; outfielders Don
Holman, Davie Nelson, Dick Wake-
field, Bob Westfall and Bill Cart-
mill, and George Harms, catcher.
The probable starting outfield will
have Holman in left, Nelson in cen-
ter and Wakefield, heavy hitting
sophomore, in right. Nelson will see
duty in the infield if reserve strength
is needed there.
Goldsmith and Veigel were the only
hurlers from the top six who worked
in yesterday's practice session. Vei-
gel turned in six erratic innings, look-
ing alternately good and bad, but
Goldsmith showed improvement in
the two frames he chucked. The
tall right-hander was only touched
for one hit, a scratc'i single by West-
fall. The soreness in Goldsmith's
hurling arm is corking out, Fisher
said, and the Massachusetts boy was
a smarter pitcher yesterday than
he has been. If his arm rounds into
shape, Goldsmith should take his
regular turn as a starter this spring.
The hurling corps is still the sor e'
spot on the roster, Fisher admitted.

Toughest opposition the Wolverine
baseball squad will meet in the
Southland this year will come from
Georgetown University and the Uni-
versity of Virginia, if pre-season pros-
pects come through. Both schools
are perennial baseball powers in
Dixie, and have come up as expect-
ed this year. The strong University
of Richmond Club is the only new-
corner on the 1941 spring card.
The remainder of the schedule
shapes up something like this:
Georgetown University: Most of the
veterans from last year's strong Hoya
nine are back again, and George-
town is tops in the field and at the
plate. In Miller, Koshlap, Pajak and
Mylnarski, the Hoyas boast the best
infield in college ball today, with a
fast outfield to back them up. Vin
Powers and Bill Wixted are starting
hurlers carried over from last season.
Dick Dickelman, originally slated for
relief roles, gave Cornell, victor over
North Carolina, Duke and Navy, four
hits in beating them 2-0 his last time
out. Castiglia, behind the plate, is
one of the toughest batsmen on the
University of Virginia: Boasting a
powerhouse squad with five sopho-
mores in the starting lineup, the
Cavaliers have already knocked off
Bridgewater, Dartmouth and Ver-
mont as this goes to press. Slugger
on the squad is Bill Harman, a heavy-
hitting catcher who takes his turn on
the mound occasionally. Billy Mc-
Cann, a big league prospect at short,
and second-baseman Tab Gillette are
other threats at the plate. Chuck
Kendall leads the soph contingent,
covering third and alterniating with
McCann in the clean-up slot. Alex
Cave is a brilliant hurler, with a six-
hit, 6-1 decision over Dartmouth to

his credit. Bob McAlpine and John
Willey are the other starting chuck-
ers. The Cavaliers came from be-
hind last spring to nose out'the Wol
verines, 12-11.
University of Richmond: The Spi-
ders are a strong replacement for
Duke on the southern schedule. They
have flopped at the plate thus far,
however, collecting 'only 10 hits in
splitting two games with Ohio State,
losing 5-1 and winning 8-7. Capt
Ned Butcher hasn't lost a game in
two seasons of varsity competition,
which is some indication of Rich-
mond's hurling strength. Charlie
Miller, a fireball artist, is the4other
flinger. The infield is leaky and
weak-armed, with the exception of
Walter (Sonny) Wholey, the best
keystone sacker ever to play for
Richmond. Wholey stole four bases
against the Buckeyes and made it
look easy. Dick Humbert, center-
fielder, has a powerful arm and is a
good hitter, and Charlie Woodard,
junior third baseman, is the other
bright spot in the infield. The Spiders
need strengthening at short, first and
behind the plate.
Washington and Lee: Little news
has come out of Lexington, where
the Generals have been struggling
through some lean baseball years.
The few advance notices available
indicate that Capt. Dick Smith has
a somewhat stronger squad than
usual this year. The scheduled tilt
with Michigan on last year's southern
jaunt was rained out.
