Eleven Seniors Say 'Adios'
To Michigan Baseball Team
Northwestern Takes Fourth
Straight Title; Lincoln Stars
By JIM PARKER
Eleven seniors wound up their
Michigan baseball careers this sea-
son, eight of whom made their
final appearances in intercollegiate
competition in the victorious sweep
of Ohio State last week-end.
The eight who saw their final
action against the Buckeyes were:
Bob Hicks, pitcher; Hal Morrill,
first base; Bill Bucholz, second
base; Bob Wolff, shortstop and
team captain; Ted Berce, utility
infielder; Ralph Morrison and Vic
Fryling, center field; and Bob Fan-
oett, right field.
THE THREE other seniors on
the squad are pitchers Jack York
and Dick Bogard and first base-
man Ed Froscheiser.

Wolverines' drive for their third
consecutive Big Ten champion-

York made four mound appear-
ances over the season and Bogard
pitched in two games with only
York registering a decision, an 8-4
win over Ft. Meade.
AFTER A prolonged early sea-
son batting slump, Morrill finished
strong to post a .253 batting aver-
age for the year. The biggest sin-
gle day at the plate for the vet-
eran first sacker was a fourvfor
five outburst against Notre Dame
After sharing the first base
duties during the Southern trip,
Froscheiser was later used pri-
marily in a pinch hitting role.
Both Bucholz and Wolff played
the entire season at their respec-
tive second base and shortstop po-

BUCHOLZ proved a dangerous
lead off man, placing second to
Leo Koceski in runs scored with

In eight Big Ten games Berce
pounded out eight hits in 13
trips to the plate for a phenom-
inal .615 percentage, tops among
league batters. Playing at three
positions over the season, Berce
batted .333 for the year.
Morrison finished the year with

Dick Evans was named captain

The honor caps a highly ru-
cessful season for the sophomore
lad from Shaker Heights, Ohio.

DURING the regular schedule of
daul meets, Evans' consistent play
was a firm support upon which
the Wolverines constructed eight
team victories against six set-
He was the Michigan drum-
major on the fairways at Ohio
State last weekend when his
team finished third in theduWest-
ern Conference links tourna-
ment. In 72 holes of medal play
he exceeded par by only six
strokes for a creditable 294 to-
tal, sixth lowest of the event.
If his putter had, not failed him
in the tourney he might have ruin
away with the player champion-
ship in his first attempt, but his
play on the greens did not su-
port his excellent efforts off the
tees and on the fairways.
