WITTH THE EXCEPTION of football and hockey, Michigan sports
teamts have had a rough year in compjarison to pastsasn
And Dick Wakefield, ex-Micohigan baseball star, didn't add to the
glory of Ann Arbor town when he camne up with two hoots in yester-
day's exhibition game between the Detroit Tigers and the Philadel-
phia Phillies ... I wonder how Dick's boxer - the one he acquired
from President Ruthven -- likes the Florida sunshine????
Dick is one of' the lads Red Rolfe is counting on. to bring
the American League pennant to the Motor City ... Red is opti-
mnistic about the coming seasons, but so are Casey Stengel, Connie
Mack, Lou Boudreau and Joe McCarthy ... And if last ;year's per-
formances have any bearing on the outcome'of the 1949 race,
Red will sooni wish he were back at the hot sack for the Brtonx
GLENN DAVIS, ARMY'S "Mr. Outside," reports that he would
be happy to coach at West Point. There has been no official word on
Davis' Army future, but Red Blaik, head grid mentor at the Hudson
River service school, has indicated that Davis would be a welcome
addition to Army's coaching staff .. . Davis is at Fort .Dix, New Jersey,
where he will play for the Far East (Korea) Command cage team in
the All-Army basketball tournament, beginning tomorrow.
Branch McCracken was cornered by an avid follower of the
Indiana basketball team recently and the following conversation
ensued between the Hoosier cage coach and the fan:
"Why lid they call a technical foul on Indiana in the game
last night?"
"Indiana had too many meni on the floor," McCracken replied.
"Oh, is that right--who was the sixth man?"
"Me~" said Branch, with a'slight blush.
AFTER FOLLOWING MICHIGAN'S hockey team through to the
first national championship provided for by the National Collegiate
Athletic Association last year, I can't help but wonder how the Wol-
verines will'farc next week when they make their title (defense out at
Colorado Springs, Coo.
The difference between last year's aggregation and the present
club is phenomenal. Michigan's passing in the last five or six
games has been a thing of beauty and the defense, in spite of the
loss of Ross Smith, has been just about unbeatable,
Goalie Jack McDonald has been having quite a. time for himself
in the nets. Some of the saves hie cameetup with in the latter part
of the season were unbelievable. With the experience coach Vic
Heyliger has given to this team, it seems hard to believe that the
'Wolverines will not breeze to their second national crown by next
Saturday night.
The sports publicity director at Colorado College informs mne
that Michigan is again favored this year. Host to the four teams
--Boston College, Dartmouth, Colorado College and Michigan-
the Broadmoor Hotel last year provided limosine service from
the Springs railroad station to the hotel. One of the chauffers
told a few members of the Michigan team, "Well, I guess you're
i. I took the Dartmouth boys up to the hotel yesterday and they
all but conceded. They seemed pretty dejected; I guess because
they lost to Toronto on the way out here." (Michigan had beaten
and tied the Canadians in two earlier games.)
The chauffer went on to say that he had bet ten dollars on
thck utcome ofv the, tourney with a fellow driver. He was a happy
mean when lie drove the victorious Wolverines to the airport the
morning after the crov n was presented to Michigan's 19483 captain,
Connie Hill. Waving a ten spot, at the boys, he yelled. "See you next
year and thanks!~"
