First Inning
Produces All
*M' Scorin
By DON LINDMAN
Michigan defeated the Univer-
sity of Detroit, 6-1, yesterday in a
baseball gamebmarked by extremes
of good and bad fielding.
Although marred by eight er-
rors, the contest also produced
some sparkling defensive plays.
Most of the misplays were made
by the Titans and the Wolverines
contributed the fielding gems,
which explains in a large measure
the final outcome of the tilt.
SMART pitching by Wolverine
starter Jack Corbett and Detroit's
lack of experience also played im-
portant parts in determining the
final score. The game was the first
of the season for the Titans, who
have practiced outdoors for less
than a week.
Of the eight miscues, seven
were committed by Detroit field-
ers, five of them coming in the
initial stanza when Michigan
scored all its runs. Walks to Dan
Cline and Frank Rbnan, hits by
Paul Lepley and Howie Tomme-
lein, two errors by Jim Hand-
loser, and one error each by Guy
Sparrow and Howie McLaugh-
lin produced the six Wolverine#
tallies.
The big blow of the inning was
Tommelein's double which rolled
to the fence in left-centerfield,
driving in three runs.
CORBETT allowed the Titans
only four hits and one walk dur-
ing his seven inning stint on the
mound. The star right-hander
used an excellent curve, a good
fast ball, and an occasional side-
arm crossfire to keep the Detroit
batters off balance all afternoon.

DEBRA STERLING VIEOR
I PAGETII AYVEN McLAGLENI

By WARREN WERTHEIMER
Very pleased with Michigan's
showing during its southern tour,
Coach Bill Murphy moved his net-
men onto the outdoor courts yes-
terday for the first time this sea-
son and they began preparation
for their home opener with Indi-
ana on April 24.
The Wolverines captured three
of four matches while down south,
the only loss being a 9-0 setback
administered by Tulane, one of
the best if not the best collegiate
outfit in the nation.
* * *
THE NETTERS swept by Ala-
bama, 8-1, with Al Mann, sub-par
physically due to illness, suffering
the only loss. The Maize and Blue
shutout Spring Hill, 9-0, and also
toppled Loyola, 5-3, the number
three doubles match being called
because of rain.
The 3-1 record is even more
impressive when it is realized
that the Wolverines were playing
outdoors for the first time this
year. All practice sessions up to
that time had been held indoors
on a wooden floor and there is
a considerable difference be-
tween the way a ball bounces on
a wood surface and on outdoor
surfaces.
Especially heartening to Murphy
was the play of Bob Mitchell and
Bob Sassone, the numbers five and
six Michigan netmen. The twc
newcomers overcame all but their
Tulane opponents in singles play
and lost only to the Green Wave
in doubles.

4.
SHOWING no signs of nervous-
ness in their first matches for
Michigan, Mitchell and Sassone
played well enough for Murphy
to considerably boost his hopes for
a successful season.
Pete Paulus, Bob Paley, and
Bob Nederlander, Michigan's
number two, three, and four
players, also captured three of
four matches. Paulus and Paley
teamed up in doubles play and
were successful against Alabama
and Spring Hill.
Mann, besides having trouble
with his health, ran into some
tough opposition including Ham
Richardson, Tulane ace who has
r not lost a set in college play, ex-
tending over more than two years.
The only victory that Michigan's
No. 1 netter was able to garner was
r against Spring Hill.
IN DOUBLES play Mann was
more successful as he paired with
Nederlander to take all but the
Tulane match.
