Morril Improves Hitting
In New Outfield' Berth


SThe brightest light in Michigan's

W' this season has been a newly
cbriverted outfielder who spent
most of last year on the bench be-
cause of his puny batting average.
Always recognized as a slick

Se far the experiment has
W*rked out nobly with McDon-
aId and Morrill hitting one-two
among the regulars.
Hitting at a .316 clip with 12
hits in. 38 trips to the plate, Mor-
rill follows McDonald in the aver-
ages column but is the team's most
consisteit hitter. Included in his
hits are three home runs on the
gouthern Junket.
in the outfield, he has handled his
positinn capably so far. His throw-
ing and fielding deficiencies will
probably be taken care of with ex-

perience, but Fisher indicated that
first base is still Hal's best position.
Morrill started the 1948 cam-
paign at first base but had to be
removed because of his poor hit-
Fisher credits Morrill's rapid
improvement this year to the tall
southpaw slugger's hard work. Hal
has been striving hard throughout
the early spring trying to improve
his hitting stance.
When the basketball team was
practicing and the baseball squad
was working out in the nets at
Yost Field House, Morrill, a start-
ing forward on the cage array,
used to take batting practice be-
fore starting his basketball drills.

IN PRACTICE yesterday Mor-
rill walloped a long drive to right-
field which Fisher claims would
have hit the tennis court if the
wind had not stopped it. He also
cracked several other solid hits in
the long batting drill.
Leo Koceski and Captain Tubby
Raymond also sparkled ab bat dur-
ing the session which included a
fielding drill.
