~ike's .391 Leads Wolverine Batters li Pep Met eBiinis '1

t() Mbh

At thi six game mark in the
Wolverine baseball sciedule, four
Wolverine diamond men are
hitting the ball at a better than
.300 clip.
They are h d by Howard Wikel,
who was recently shfited from
right field to shortstop. Wikel is
pounding the ball at a very solid
.391 clip and has been a vital cog
in the Wolverine attack.
Close on his heels is Ted
Berce who has seen action this
year at third base and in the
outfield. He has gathered four
hits in 11 times at the plate for
a .363 average.
Bob Chappuis is next on the
Michigan batting parade with a
.333 average. Catching and play-
ing in the outfield, he has hit
safely five times in 15 times at
Following him is Jack Weis-
enburger with eight blows in
his 25 times at bat for a .320
percentage. He has hit safely in
each of the last five games that
the Wolverines have played,

getting three for five against
the Camp Lee nine.
Farther down on the list is sec-
ond-baseman Dom Tomasi with a
.250 average. However, his six hits
in 24 times at bat does not tell
the true story of his value as a
hitter. Three of those six hits
have been home runs, one of
which won the Quantico game for
Michigan, and another that
helped win the Georgetown tilt.
Bump Elliott is the only other
Wolverine with an average over
.200. He has ably filled his job
as leadoff man, reaching base and
hitting in the pinches.
Although the other Michigan
players are not up at the top
with their averages, that does
not mean that they are not
dangerous hitters. "Lefty" Hal
Morrill rapped one of the long-
est balls ever hit in Ferry Field
in Monday's practice, reaching
the tennis courts in dead center
field on the fly and going all
the way to the wall before it
was retrieved.
Ted Kobrin too is a dangerous
man with the bat. Against Ohio

U. he smacked a ball 400 feet
only to have it hauled in by the
left fielder who was playing all
the Wolverines deep. Nor can the
potentialities of Ralph Morrison
or Hal Raymond be discounted by
opposing pitchers.
Bill Taft and Ed Heikkinen are
the only pitchers to collect at
least one hit. Taft, who has been
used as a pinch-hitter by Coach
Ray Fisher on several occasions,
is batting .429 with three hits in
seven times at the plate. Heik-
kinen has one for three and .333
In the matter of pitching deci-
sions, Art Dole and Bob Fancett
each have one win against no
losses, while Bob Hicks and Heik-
kinen are at the .500 mark with
one win and one loss on their rec-
ords. Pat Morrison, Bud Rankin
and Taft have all seen action, but
did not figure in any decisions on
the southern tour.
