Diamondmnen Open Season
Opposing Delaware Today

P
l
.

By DAVE RORABACHER
Michigan's untested baseball
squad opens its annual Southern
competition today as it takes on
the University of Delaware at
Newark, Delaware.
Coach Ray Fisher has assigned
veteran Marv Wisniewski to do
the mound chores against the
team which last year shut out the
Wolverines, 1-0.
Directing activities from behind
the plate will be sophomore catch-
er Gene Snider who will alternate
with Frank Szalwinski through-
out the tour.
Starting Infield
The starting infield will consist
of third baseman Don Eaddy,
Moby Benedict at shortstop, sec-
ond baseman Ken Tippery and at
first will be either Jim Vukovich
or Tony Branoff.
As regards the outfield Fisher

r To Indicate
M' Netmen
Though little is known about the
three Southern teams, they tradi-
tionally produce quality aggrega-
tions.
Michigan Hampered
Besides the disadvantage of
playing on foreign courts, Michi-
gan will be hampered in condi-
tioning and practice. Bad weath-
er has not permitted any outdoor
workouts while the Wolverines'
foes have been outdoors for weeks.
Eight players, including three
sophomores will make the annual
sojourn. It is quite probable that
Barry MacKay will be in the num-
ber one position. MacKay, who
has gone undefeated in intra-
squad competition, is a sopho-
more from Dayton, Ohio. In 1954
he headed the rankings of the
Ohio Valley Tennis Association
men's singles division.
Mark Jaffe, another newcomer,
may hold down the second slot. A
Bay City resident, hehas lost only
one intra-squad match. Captain
Bob Nederlander, Pete Paulus, Bob
Paley, Al Mann, Dick Potter, and
Bob Mitchell will vie for the oth-
er positions.
In doubles, MacKay and Neder-
lander will play in the top spot.
Paley and Jaffe have captured the
number two doubles position. I

year, according to Katzenmeyer.
Myers, while actually a junior

ed.
Pinehurst a 'Golf Town'
This is the eighth straight year
that Michigan's linksters have vis-
ited Pinehurst, which is literally a
"golf town." In fact, the village
was built to accommodate people
who visited Pinehurst to make use
of one of its fivechampionship
courses.
The Wolverines have had little
outdoor practice until now, and
have been content with daily
workouts in the practice cages in
the clubhouse basement of the
University Golf Course.

As the Maize and Blue dia-

Thurston and Dick Peterjohn will
alternate with Wisniewski in the
starting chores. With veteran
Mark Ferrelli, back in his native
southern element, Don Polosky,
Jim Clark and Al Levy available
for relief duty, the Wolverines
will have a strong pitching staff
that will be difficult to beat.
Frank Ronan, alternating with
Tippery at second base, rounds

Weather Doubtful
Fisher is apprehensive about
the weather on the trip. His dia-
mond crew was able to get in
only one day of outside prac-
tice before embarking on the
southern jaunt and a stretchof
bad weather canceling several of
the scheduled games, such as oc-

The annual trip goes a long way
in tuning up the men for the con-
ference struggle. Playing nine
games in as many days against
teams of varying strength, the
diamondmen quickly b e c o m e
molded into an effective team
while Fisher has a fine opportun-
ity to survey the different men in
action and plan his strategy for
the forthcoming campaign.
The one danger, of course, is
the possibility of a player being
injured and consequently lost to
the team for a major part of the
season, but the vast advantages to
be gained and the remoteness of
such an incident occurring make
the journey more than worth-
while.

c. ------ ..

By The Associated Press
The Cleveland Indians pounded
Sal Maglie freely yesterday at
San Antonio, Texas, to defeat the
New York Giants, 14-11, before an
' overflow crowd of 11,649 that led
to 18 ground rule doubles.
Maglie was clipped for eight
runs and 10 hits by the Tribe be-
fore giving way to Hoyt Wilhelm
with one out in the fourth. One of
the hits was a two-run homer by
Ralph Kiner in the third.
Each club hit nine of the auto-
matic two-base hits into the rop-
ed-off sections of the outfield.
Braves 3, Dodgers 2
In New Orleans, Rookie Al Fac-
chini's pinch single with the bases
loaded scored an eighth-inning
run that gave the Milwaukee
Braves a 3-2 victory over the
Brooklyn Dodgers in their barn-
storming baseball tour.

It was the fifth straight game
played between the two National
League pennant contenders to be
decided by a one-run margin. The
Brooks have won three of them.
Cardinals 3, Chisox 2
At Columbus, Georgia, Rip Re-
pulski singled home Rookie Bill
Virdon with the deciding run in
the tenth inning to help the St.
Louis Cardinals to a 3-2 verdict
over the Chicago White Sox.
In another exhibition game at
Sarasota, Florida, the Boston Red
Sox jumped on Rookie Jack Meyer
for all their runs in the first six
innings to score a 6-4 victory over
the Philadelphia Phillies in their
final training site game.
Senators 4, Bosox 3
At Camp Gordon, Georgia,
Mickey Vernon delivered a pinch-
hit in the eighth inning Thurs-

day and drove in the run that
gave the Washington Senators a
4-3 triumph over the Cincinnati
Redlegs.
Meanwhile at Daytona Beach,
Florida, Lino Donoso, Pittsburgh
southpaw relief pitcher, struck
out catcher Hal Smith with fhe
bases loaded in the ninth inning
to preserve a 6-5 victory over the
Baltimore Orioles.

21-17, 16-21, and 21-15.
In the doubles match, Bob
Messner and Wally Roeser of
Reeves whipped Bob Reynolds and
Roy Moxley of Adams, 17-21, 21-
14, and 21-14.
Reeves also won the residence
halls bowling title last Thursday,
and took top honors in foul-
shooting Wednesday.
