Conference Title Third
Straight for 'M' Nine

Michigan's 1950 baseball squad
was the seventh Maize and Blue
nine in the last ten years to
emerge on top of the heap in the
Big Ten title chase.
This year's edition of Coach Ray
Fisher's baseball machine tied
with Wisconsin for the crown, both
teams having records of nine wins
and three losses.
THE DEADLOCK for the con-
ference flag was the third in suc-
cession for Michigan which has
not finished below the .500 mark
in Big Ten action since 1938.
Since 1841, the Wolverines
have clearly dominated the Big
Nine-standings. In 1941 and 1942
the Maize and Blue copped un-
disputed possession of first place
and repeated this performance
in 1944 and 1945 before sharing
the title in 1948.
The tie with Wisconsin also was
the 13th for Fisher since he took
over the reins here in 1921.
