As Five Wolverine Pitchers Yield Three
* * *
By BEV BUSSEY
Finding the going much easier
than against the Tigers, the Michi-
gan baseball team overwhelmed the
Michigan Normal nine 16-3 in a
game liberally sprinkled with walks
and errors on Ferry Field yesterday.
A trio of Huron hurlers were touch-
ed for eleven safeties, while issuing
thirteen free passes to the Wol-
verine batters. In addition, eight mis-
cues, credited to the visitor's inner
defense helped the Maize and Blue
score in all but two frames.
Five Wolverines Hurl
In chalking up its fifteenth victory
Michigan used five moundsmen who
limited the Hurons to three hits. One,
of the scratch variety, came off Dick
Savage who started and was credited
with. the win. Dick Bodycombe,
the last of the hurlers, was touched
for a brace of singles.
Tom Rosema and Bob Chappuis
led the Wolverine attack with two
hits apiece. Rosema's single in the
first frame drove in Michigan's ini-
tial markers, Don Robinson who had
also singled and Jack Weienberger
who had walked.
Six Runs Scored
After a lone tally in the secon d
when Swanson crossed the plate
while Kell was being run down be-
tween first and second, Michigan
exploded with six runs on two hits,
three walks, and three errors in the
To start things off Riobinson walk-
ed and went to third when catcher
Hal Lagg threw the ball into right
field as Weisenberger was jogging
down to first on a base on balls.
Weisenberger stole second, Rosema
also walked loading the sacks, before
Chappuis came through with a single
to left sending Robinson and Weis-
enberger scampering for home and
Rosema to third.
Nussbaumer Doubles in Two
Tomasi struck out, but Swanson
kept up the pace by reaching first
on shortstop Bill Nuse's miscue with
Rosema scoring. As pitcher Savage
was being thrown out at first, Swan-
son took second, and legged it to third
when Kell got a life on another
error by Nuse. Nussbaumer drove
them both home on a double. Robin-
son, up for the second time, ended the
uprising by grounding out.
JACK WEISENBERGER. . .
Hard hitting leftfielder, who hit a
triple against the Tigers on Mon-
day, repeated his feat against the
Broncos yesterday to hat in tow
Combining two walks, a fielder's
choice, and Weisenberger's triple,
Michigan pushed across three more
tallies in the fifth. They added ano-
ther in the sixth and polished things
off with three in the seventh.
Weisenberger walked, pilfered sec-
ond, and came home on Rosema's
second hit. He scored a few seconds
later on Tomasi's triple. Swanson
then singled Tomasi home with the
last Wolverine run.

Vic(tory Over Penn
Slt ie Bolsters OSJ
By BILL MATNEY
This Saturday Ken Doherty's out-
door thinclads will try to avenge the
lopsided defeat handed them last
week by Illinois when they face a
surprising Ohio State team that has
gained in strength and confidence
within the last few weeks here.
The meet will continue a 29 year
old rivalry that has produced many
classic struggles in the past. Ohio
State, strong in the dashes and in
the hurdles, is expected to provide
exceptionally strong opposition to

DETROIT, May 22-(IP)-Overcom-
ing the shock of hank Greenberg's
three-run homer in the first inning
the New York Yankees bounced back
to whip the Detroit Tigers 5 to 3
here today with the aid of a wild
triple play in the eigh1th inning.
Everybody in the Yankee infield
but pitcher Jake Wade, who won
the game in relief, had a hand in
the triple-killing which doused a Ti-
ger rally after Eddie Mayo had walked
and moved to third on Jim Outlaw's
Dick Wakefield bounced to Nick
Etten at first, who threw to the
plate and got Mayo in a rundown at
third. When George Stirnweiss tagged
Mayo, Outlaw, who had turned toward
third, and Wakefield legged it for
second from opposite directions, ar-
riving simultaneously. Outlaw then
tried to get to third and was tagged
by Joe Gordon and Wakefield tried to
go back to first and was tagged by
The Yanks bunched five singles
for four runs in the fifth, chasing
Freddie Hutchinson after he had run
up 18 straight shutout innings. Et-
ten's walk, Bill Dickey's single and
Gordon's long fly produced the fifth
run in the sixth.
Hutchinson was the losing pitcher
and Wade, who succeeded Randy
Gumpert in the fifth, was the winner,
though he entered the game with the
Yanks leading by a run.

On Williams' Homer
CLEVELAND, May 22-(A)-Out-
fielder Ted Williams clouted a home
run with one man on base today to
give the first-place Boston Red Sox
a 7 to 4 victory over the Cleveland
Indians in a contest that went 12
The win moved the Bostonians up
one full game in the standings, put-
ting them six games ahead of the
second-place New York Yankees.
Williams' homer, breaking a 4-4
tie, gave him a total of 33 runs batted
in so far this season. Before his 12th
inning circuit clout, he had gone
hitless four out of five times at bat.
Mel Harder injured his pitching
hand when he knocked down a hard
smash to the box in the 11th and was
taken to a hospital for X-Ray exam-

Michigan's bid for second prlaee in
Baynard To Run Dashes
Feature events of the day will pit
the Wolverines' Val Johnson and
Horace Coleman against Carl Bay-
nard, Buckeye sprint sensation, who
turned in a :10 hundred last week-
end against Penn State. Baynard will
team with Stu Reid, who copped the
220 and 440 in the same meet in
the furlough event.
In lashing Penn State 94-23, Ohio
State exhibited strength in both
hurdle races. Lloyd Duff flitted over
the highs in :15 flat to crack the
meet record and Ed Shiray then took
the lows for the Buckeyes. They will
face John Larsen, Tom Kenny and
Jack Martin of the Maize and Blue.I
Clifford Ready Now
Michigan's middle distance men
will be sorry to hear that Bill Clifford,
thorn in the Wolverines' side in the
indoor Conference meet, has returned
to cinder competition after a brief
absence, caused by a leg injury and
will compete in both the half and
mile runs. It is not likely that he will
be in condition to compete favorably
against Michigari's ace dlo, herb
Ba rten and Bob Thomason. Coach
Larry Snyder will throw his second
great mildle distance runner, Mal-
vin Whitfield, againstMichigan, how-
ever, in an effort to stem point surge
in these events. Whitfield will run
the quarter also.
Don Washington of the Buckeyes
will provide plenty of trouble for
Michigan's Dean Voegtlen and Ed
Johnson in the two-mile run. Wash-
ington trotted home in 9:58.4 last
week-end without being pushed, and
will be primed for the brush witli
Baynard Has- Run :49
It is highly possible that Baynard,
diminutive sprinter will compete in
the quarter mile against Hugh Short,
Bill Haidler, and Ron Soble. The
Buckeye scooter was clocked in :49
flat on his leg of the mile relay, and
was unofficially credited with the
University 440 record.
Bob Baker of the home forces will
match leaps with Allen White of the
visitors in the broad jump. White
soared 22 ft. ' in. against the Nit-
tany Lions to snap Barney Ewell's
dual meet mark by at least six inches.
Ostroot, Coker To Duel
The discus should bring together
two evenly matched weight men in
George Ostroot of Michigan and
Matt Coker of the Buckeyes. Coker's
winning effort last week cracked
another record as he hurled the
platter 147 ft. 2 in. Ostroot's best
toss is a foot or two better, which
doesn't mean too much when the
two men are competing directly
against each other.
Chuck Fonville's 52-foot shot put
mark places him well ahead of the
Buck's Mascio. The lanky freshman
will also compete in the discus, while
Ostroot will join him in the shot. Jim
Artley will round out the Wolverine
representation in this event.
Bob Harris' surprising 6 ft. 4 in.
high jump of last week will come in
handy against Ohio State's Murphy
who leaped just two inches shy of the
height against Penn State,
Assistant track coach Don Canham
announced yesterday that his first
year track men are rapidly rounding
into form and have been showing
marked improvement in their recent
Probably the best all-round pros-
pect on the squad, declared Canham,
is Pete Cabaj. The yearling thin-
clad has sprinted to the best marks
in all the dashes from the century
to the quarter. His top time for the
100 is 10.4, while he has covered
the 220 in 23.4 and raced through the
440 in the good time of 53.9.
Teammates Press Cabaj
Cabaj has been pressed by team-
mates in all three events, however.
Phil Breitmeyer has been close on
his heels in the 100 with a clocking
of 10.5, and Jim Johnson and Ralph
Rose both are threatening his su-
premacy in the quarter. Canham
stated that Johnson and Rose are
capable of breaking into the 53's
at any time.
Five men have been coming along
in the half-mile, with Al Farnsworth
having the best time, 2:07. Close be-
hind are John Cuchinan, Jack Bia-
lik, Hank Clark, and Lester Hecht,
who have all improved considerably
in the past few weeks.
Knuth Leads Milers
In the longer distances Clarence
Knuth has been hitting around the
low 4:40's in the mile, and in the
opinion of Coach Canham should
reach the 4:30's before long. Roland
Barthel has also chalked up some
good mile times, while Bill Kuivenen
has been leading the pack in the
Two hurdlers have shown good
form, but neither Alfred Antilla or
Gerald Iler have been out long enough
to get into the best of shape.
The field events have Charley Gib-
son in the weights and Don Wait and
Charley Moss in the pole vault. Gib-
son had hurled the discus 120 feet
and the shot put 40 feet, while Moss
has achieved a 10 ft. 8 in. vault with
Wait just below at 10 ft. 6 in.

MEXICO CITY, May 22- -Pitchers
who formerly hurled in the Major
Leagues are being pounded hard by
Mexican League sluggers, and seve-
ral might be without jobs today if

Alex Carresquel, the former Wash-
ington flipper, found that in Mexico
City's thin air his curves break after
crossing the plate-when the batter
lets them cross.
The Vera Cruz Blues released the
big Venezuelan, but his salary went,
on since his contract, as those of all
players here, is with the league and
not with a certain club. Carrasquel
said that under terms of the contract
he could not be fired for three years.
A week after the Blues let him go,
he began playing for the Mexico City
Tommy Gorman, former New York
Giant hurler, was not so fortunate.
His contract was on a "trial" basis,
so when he developed a sore arm
and was unable to win for Nuevo
Laredo he was fired. That placed Gor-

he had jumped, and jobless in Mexi--
