record, Michigan's baseball squad

day against Notre Dame.
Wise To Hurl Opener
Far from satisfied with the per-
formance of his charges in the
south, Coach Ray Fisher plans to
throw his ace righthander, Cliff
Wise, against a good Irish outfit
that won four out of five over
the Easter vacation. Wise beat
the lads from South Bend twice
last year and will be gunning for
his ninth straight victory over a
two year stretch. This year he
holds a two-hit 5-1 verdict over
Maryland and a 4-3 win over
The Wolverine batting attack,
which fared none too well below
the Mason-Dixon line, will prob-
ably have to face either the south-
paw slants of freshman Jack
Campbell or veteran righthander
John Creevy.
Weisenberger hits .345
Only three Maize and Blue reg-
ulars, 'Jack Weisenberger, Bump
Elliott and Bob Wiese, came north
with anything even resembling a

decent batting average. Weisen
berger provided most of the power
stickwork on the 1rip> by piling
up a healthy .345 average which
included a homer, triple and two
doubles. Elliott hit an even .300
and Wiese connected for a .29
Nor did the Wolverines' defen-
sive department look much better

three errors over the nine games

tributable to the lack of practice.
