Wolverines Look for Second
Win over Irish this Season

* * *

By GENE MACKEVICH
"Gerry Dorr is the finest fielding
third baseman in the Western Con-
ference."
This is the opinion of baseball
coach Ray Fisher, who has had
Dorr on his squads for the past
four seasons.
* **
4 FEW MICHIGAN games are
played in which Door doesn't prove
to the fans, his teammates,and
the opponents as well, that he is
one of the finest defensive stars
in college baseball today.
For example, last week in the
Indiana series, the Hoosiers,
Gene Ring knocked a sizzling
grounder down the third base
line. The ball took a crazy hop,
was deflected off Dorr's hand

He recovered the ball and his
equilibrium in time to nip the run-
ner at first base. "As I see it," ex-
plains the 24 year old Detroiter,
"you either get 'em or you don't.
Of course," he added smiling,
"once in a while I have a little
luck on my side."
FOR A TIME it looked as though
Door's athletic career at Michigan
would be a very short-lived one.
When he went out for baseball in
his freshman year, only 13 uni-
forms were handed out at first.
Dorr, who then played short-
stop or second base, was left out
temporarly but he stayed out
until he had an opportunity to
show freshman Coach McCoy
that he migh be a good man to
have around on Fisher's teams
of the next few years.
In his sophomore season, Dorr
was playing second-string second
base behind Bill Bucholz. During
this year Fisher used the 5' 9",
160 pound infielder in many pinch-
hiting roles.
* * *
THIS WAS the year that gave
Dorr his fondest baseball experi-
ence. Notre Dame was playing the
Maize and Blue on Ferry Field; the
score was tied eight-all going into
the tenth inning.
Dorr, who had come in to play
second base in the sixth inning,
was the lead-off hitter in the
tenth frame. He stepped up and
wasted no time in greeting the
Irish pitcher with a home run
drive that found its way to the
tennis courts.
In his Junior year Fisher put
Dorr on third base. He hit .341 to
lead all Michigan batsmen at the
plate, and played a good defensive
game at the hot corner.
* * *
NOW, IN HIS FINAL season of
colege competition, the husky ath-
lete is playing some of the finest
third base in the Big Ten.

Coach Bennie Oosterbaan an-
nounced yesterday the names of
the candidates for the Meyer-Mor-
ton trophy to be awarded next Sat-
urday to the gridder who has
shown the most improvement in
spring football.
They are backs Bill Putich, Don
ZanFagna and Dick Balzhiser;
linemen Dick Strozewski and Jim
Balog; and end Tim Green. Three
of the nominees are returning let-
termen and Putich is captain-elect
of next year's squad.
BOTH PUTICH and ZanFagna
are quarterbacks by rights, but theI
shortage of left halves forced the
pair to alternate between the two
positions. Physically they are alike
-both stand five feet ten and
weigh around 175. Putich hails
from Cleveland, Ohio, while Zan-
Fagna is a native of Providence,
Rhode Island.
Fullback Dick Balzhiser, fresh-
man from Wheaton, Illinois,
measures six feet one and weighs
185. Besides being a hard run-
ner, Balzhiser can throw a neat
left-handed pass, and has a 3.9
average in the Engineering
School to boot.
Tackles Dick Strozewski. 200
pound six footer from South Bend,
Indiana, and Jim Balog, a six foot
three, 210 pound youth from the
same town as Balzhiser, are in hot
contention for the spot vacated by
Al Wahl.
ALTHOUGH one of the roughest

gents on South Ferry Field, Stro-
zewski is also a scholar, having a
3.5 average.
Tim Green, sophomore end
from Toledo, is the speedster of
the group. Standing an even six
feet and weighing 180 pounds,
Green was reputedly the fastest
man on the squad last year, be-
ing used almost extensively on
kickoffs.
Oosterbaan commented that
freshmen Norm Canty, Gene Knut-
son and Dick Beison would in all
probability be candidates if they
had not been injured early in the
practice sessions. All will be, back
next fall, however.
Major
League
Standings

A three-hit pitching perform-0
ance by John Biery gave Prescottt
a 3-1 victory over Williams yester-S
day thereby enabling the East
Quadders to capture a first placef
playoff slot in I-M dormitory soft-i
ball.
Biery's fourth consecutive league
triumph was assured by a two-run1
second inning outburst, whicht
came without the benefit of a
base hit. Duane Possanza paced
the winner's four-hit attack with;
two singles.
A GAME Tyler squad rebounded
from an eight-run deficit to score
a last-inning, 13-12 win over Mich-
igan. The victory enabled Tyler to
move a step further in the third-
place playoffs.
Bob Tung smacked a two-out
single to right field to give the
Tylermen the win. Chester Mill-
er's grand-slam home run fea-
tured a six-run Tyler third inn-
ing.
Adams House garnered its first
win of the season, by a 9-7 score
over Winchell. Winchell mounds-
men yielded eleven passes, five
coming together with three of the
Adams total of four hits, in a
seven-run third frame.
* * *
FRATERNITY action saw both
Phi Gamma Delta and Delta Chi
advance to the semi-finals of the
third-place playoffs.
Gordon Hyde's two-run single
highlighted a five-run Phi Gam
rally which broke a 2-2 deadlock
with Chi Phi. The Phi Gams
went on to win by a 7-3 margin.
Delta Chi scored a 13-8 triumph
over Theta Delta Chi. Fred Ronak-
er and Gene Kiddon hit successive
homers for the victors.
In pro-fraternity competition,
Delta Sigma Delta chalked up its
third straight win, a 17-0 trouncing
of Phi Delta Chi.

Michigan's baseball squad will
journey to South Bend today to en-
counter the Irish of Notre Dame in
the 58th meeting of the two uni-
versities.
The Irish have won 16 games in
the long series, while the Wolver-
ines have captured a total of 41.
THE MAIZE and Blue's 41st vic-
tory was a 13-6 triumph last week
on Ferry Field. In that game Mich-
igan scored nine runs in the first
inning and four more tallies in the
second frame to coast to an easy
win.

Billy Johnson
From Yankees
NEW YORK - {W)P. - The New
York Yankees sold veteran third
baseman Billy Johnson to the St.
Louis tardinals last night for an
undisclosed amount of cash and
first baseman Don Bollweg.
While no price was given, the
amount was believed to be $15,000
-$5,000 over the customary waiver
price. The Yankees had obtained
waivers on Johnson from the other
seven American League Clubs.
Bollweg, a six-foot-one lefthand-
er, will report to the Yanks' Kansas
City farm club in the American As-
sociation. The 29-year-old first
sacker hit .313 for Rochester of
the International League last year.
Johnson, 32, has been with the
Yankees since 1943. He spent the
1944-45 seasons in the Armed
Forces.

three season veteran, Jim Gillis

A run-down of the Irish infield
shows letterman Jim Manning
holding down third base; lead-off
hitter Harry Durkin is at short-
stop; Bob Manning is on second;
and a reconverted outfielder, Ed
Foley, holds down the first base
position.
THE HITTING department cen-
ters around veteran catcher Tom
Boland. Last season Boland col-
lected 14 safeties in 44 trips to the
plate for a .318 average.
This year in the Notre Dame-
Michigan, clash he collected two
hits in five attempts, knocked
in two runs, and scored three
himself.
In all probability, Notre Dame
coach Jake Kline will send Bob
Nemes, the staff's only veteran, to
the hill.
COACH FISHER is hoping to
give a number of his pitchers an
opportunity to throw against Notre
Dame, especially the lefthanders.
Sure to see some action is Bob Lar-
sen. Fisher is undecided as to who
else he will give the nod.
After travelling to South Bend,
the Wolverines will play another
non-conference game when they
journey to Detroit tomorrow to
meet the University of Detroit.

The Michigan Sailing Club had
to be content with a third place
last weekend out at Whitmore
Lake, but third place was all they
needed.
The Wolverines were sailing for
an invitation to the fourth annual
Midwest Invitational regatta to be
held next week at Ohio State. Only
the three top schools out of the
seven Michigan and northern Ohio
teams that raced at Whitmore are
eligible for the Columbus trip.
ON A WEEKEND made for sail-
ing, Purdue University sailed to

a hotly contested first place with
95 points. Toledo University, a pre-
race favorite, was second, one point
behind the Boilermakers. The Wol-
verines, who by now are getting
rather tired of trailing Toledo
across the finish line, ran up 80
points for third position.
The Toledoans ran away with
first place honors in the Michi-
gan Invitation regatta sailed
here three weeks ago, and, de-
spite their recent entry into col-
legiate sailing competition, have
established themselves as a crew
to be reckoned with.
Wayne University took fourth
place with 61 points, while Bowling
Green and Michigan State tied for
fifth with 56. Detroit rounded out
the starters with 34 points.
DESPITE the near-perfect
weather over the weekend, five of
the tricky ten foot dinghies cap-
sized during the course of the two
day regatta. The races are sailed
on a triangular course, laid out so
that the wind strikes the boat on
a different quarter on each of the
three legs.
