Gaffka Gets Mound Assignment for Tartars

Yankees Whip Washing ton;
Reds in National Opener

By HERB RUSKIN
After being forced to wait a
week because of bad weather,
Michigan's baseball team will
open its home season against
Wayne University on Ferry Field
today at 3:30 p.m.
The Wolverines, fresh from two
victories over the Iowa Hawkeyes
this past weekend, will be favored
to win, but the Tartars are ex-
pected to field a strong team.
Wayne downed Selfridge Field
22-6 over the weekend.
2.
In an effort to see as many men
as possible under game conditions,
# Wolverine coach Ray Fisher said
that he was going to use a lot of
players and four pitchers.
Fancett Starts
Bob Fancett will get the start-
ing nod from Coach Fisher but
Bill Taft, Pat Morrison and Bob
Hicks are also sure of seeing
mound action for the Wolverines.
Michigan's starting lineup will
be the same as has been used all
season, with the changes to be
made during the course of the
game.
Bump Elliott, who is batting
.250 will lead off and play center
field for the Wolverines. Elliott
added 33 points to his average
over the weekend.
In the second slot will be left
fielder Ralph Morrison, followed
by third sacker Ted Kobrin. Both
have been hitting the ball at an
improved clip since the southern
trip.
Weisenburger Fourth
In the clean up slot, with a .333
batting average will be Jack Weis-
enburger. Weisenburger will be
playing first base, the' third posi-
tion of his college career. Leading
the Wolverine regulars in hitting,
Howie Wikel is fifth in the bat-

ting order and will play shortstop.
His eight game average is .355.,
Dom Tomasi, who's four hits
against Iowa boosted his average
over the .300 mark, will hit sixth
and will be in his usual second
base position.
Chappuis in Right
In the seventh slot will be Bob'
Chappuis who will probably be
playing right field. His season's
average is .292. He will be followed
by either Hal Raymond or Walt
Hancook in the catching post.
Others who are likely to see ac-
tion during the contest are Paul
Vieth, Ted Berce, Willard Baker,
Hal Morrill, Dick Bodycombe and
Ed Frosheiser.
Larry Gaffka has been picked
for Wayne's starting pitcher.
Their chief batting threat is Jim
Nubacher, hard hitting Third
baseman, who slugged out five hits
in seven times at bat against Self-
ridge including a home run and a
double.
Following the Wayne tilt, the
Wolverines will have one day of.
practice before they leave for In-
diana on Thursday. Michigan has
a two game series with the Hoos-
iers this weekend playing them
once on both Friday and Satur-
day.
Michigan will attempt to run
their Big Nine winning streak to
four games against Indiana. The
Hoosiers in turn will be after their
first Conference win when they
face Michigan. Wisconsin, beat
them twice over the weekend.
After the Hoosiers, Michigan
will remain home for the next two
weekends, meeting Conference foes
on both occasions. They face Ohio
State and Purdue in that order;
before taking the road again.

By The Associated Press
Baseball moved into the na-
tional spotlight once again as
opening day in the majors saw six
teams go into action.
Philadelphia's rejuvenated Ath-
letics apparently had the measure
of the powerful Boston Red Sox as
they dumped them twice in a Pa-
triots Day doubleheader in Bean-
town.
It took the A's eleven innings
to overcome the Bosox in the
morning game, but two runs in
that inning proved to be what
was needed as Boston could
only add one in its half to fall,
5-4. Phil Marchildon got cr'edit
for win, going the route. Joe
Dobson was the loser.
It was Philadelphia all the way
in the afternoon contest as rookie
southpaw Lou Brissie held the
Red Sox to four hits and two runs,
while his mates were tallying four
times on seven safeties. Denny
Galehouse was the losing pitcher
for Boston.
The New York Yankees suc-
cessfully opened up the defense

of their American League
Championship by crushing the
Washington Senators, 12-4, be-
fore a capacity Washington
crowd that included President
Truman. Allie Reynolds was the
winning pitcher. 9
The Yanks exploded for seven
runs in the first inning off right-
hander Early Wynn and breezed
in. The Bombers added two more
in the fourth and wound up their
scoring with a three run outburst
in the ninth. Washington's runs
came in the first and fifth, notch-
ing three in the initial frame.
Over in the senior circuit, there
was only one game scheduled. In
that one, the Cincinnati Reds got
off on the right foot as they
downed the Pittsburgh Pirates,
4-1, with Ewell Blackwell getting
credit for the win.
The Reds scored twice in fifth
and added two more in the eighth
to put the game on ice for Black-
well. Hank Sauer and Bobby
Adams hit home runs for the vic-
tors. The Bucs' lone run came in
the third inning.

Fouville ei
Good''Before
Record h.eae
The country was still agog to-
day over the remarkable perform-
ance of Michigan's shot put artist
Charlie Fonville last Saturday at
the Kansas Relays.-
The Wolverine ace, who hadn't
been able to put much over 53
feet all week said he just "felt
good" and really let fly with
some tremendous heaves.
All of his first four tosses were
over 55 feet but it was his sece id
heave that went sailing 58 feet 1'
inch to a new world's record.
Contrary to the original reports
Charlie did compete in the af-
ternoon finals and just "took it
easy" - his winning heave was
over 56 feet.
DO YOU KNOW . . . that
Michigan's baseball team holds
a substantial edge over all its
Conference opponents except
Illinois, who it leads by a slim
one game margin.

'lonorruw's the big cay!
At 4:30 in the afternoon on the
fcrry field cinders it is expected
that over 100 athletes will com-
pete for the coveted trophy and
medals in The Daily 100-yard
dash contest,
Entries will be accepted up until
the last minute and all who com-
pete will be awarded a point
toward their organization's total.
Although the trophy will be an
added impetus to entrants from
fraternities and dormitories there
will be a whole host of individual
entrants intent upon winning one
of the medals awarded for the
first twelve places and possibly a
spot on Michigan's varsity or
Freshman track squads.

BILL ROBERTS
... Basketball captain-elect
Roberts New
Cage Captain
Bill Roberts was elected cap-
tain of next year's Michigan bas-
ketball team.
The lanky six-feet-six-inch
center was chosen by his team-
mates yesterday afternoon. Rob-
erts, when told of his new posi-
tion, was somewhat surprised and
after a moment became all smiles.
"No captain ever had a finer ag-
gregation to work with," he said.
A junior in the Business Ad-
ministration school this year, Rob-
erts will be completing his third
of varsity play next fall before
graduating in June '49. In addi-
tion to Roberts, Coach Ozzie
Cowles will have guards Pete El-
liott and Bob Harrison, both for-
mer captains, back for the last
time.

Last week's 72 holes of medal
play helped Coach Bert Katzen-
meyer size up the possibilities of
this year's team, but still left him
with a squad entirely too un-
wieldy to be hauled through a full
season of Big Nine competition.
In fact, the slew of golfers all
capable of posting about the same
score leaves Coach Katzenmeyer
a bit perplexed as to just how to
cut down the numbers.
Positions Open
The coach commented that "the
first twelve men are right together
with only a couple of the boys sure
of their jobs. The whole team has
fine potentialities and I won't cut
again until the fellows have had
a little more chance to show their
stuff."
It's a familiar group of names
that has popped up to fill the
thirteen spots on the varsity.
Ed Schalon continued shooting
excellent golf to lead the field
with a 72 hole total of 300. His
score was only three strokes more
than the one he turned in to tie
OSU's Howard Saunders for the
Big Nine title last year. Ed
smacked the pellet for rounds of
72, 74, 77, and 77.
Pete Elliott and Rog Kessler, a
pair of regulars last year, tossed
in good scores to pick up the
place and show positions.
Mort Cohn snuck into fourth
place beating out Bill Cutler, a
former Michigan ASTP student,
who is playing his first year of
varsity golf.
Barclay Back
Dave Barclay, NCAA titlist,
Garry DeVries, Tom Messinger,
Ken Berke, Chuck MacCalltm,
Wes Carlson, and Doug Beath all
veteran golfers escaped the first
cut to fill up the list.
1,

In order to select a team to
start the Big Nine season against
OSU at Columbus this Saturday,
a varsity-Jayvee golf match will
be played Wednesday afternoon.
Added to this will be the total of
36 holes of medal play this week.
