Wolverines on Home Course


With five wins, three losses, and
a tie behind them, Michigan's
baseball team will open against
Wayne today at 3:30 for the sea-
son's first game at Ferry Field.
The record thus far was com-
piled in the sunny South on the
Wolverines' annual spring trip.
Michigan's better than .500 aver-
age was fairly pleasing to coach
Ray Fisher although he thought
they should have done a little bet-

Need Stronger Pitching
Fisher's overall view of the
team's performance pointed to a
need for greater pitching strength
and to the fact that both the hit-
ting and fielding were good at
times, but appeared more spotty
than consistent.
In the pitching department,
Mary Wisniewski is Fisher's top
man. He was particularly out-
standing on the southern jaunt as
he hurled 26 consecutive scoreless
innings, winning two games and
losing one, plus saving one in the
late innings.
Some more of the staff looked
about as well as expected, al-
though Fisher still stressed the
fact that there was need for im-
provement. Don Polosky and Jim
Clark both won games and Al Levy
came through above Fisher's ex-
pectations, pitching eight scoreless

Fisher wasn't able to pick out
any outstanding hitting perform-
ance, but was satisfied with the
team as a whole. He s'id that
some players would be hitting one
day and that others would be the
next, and that no one was really
There didn't seem to be much
long-ball potential on the team as
the Wolverines hit only three
home runs. Dan Cline and Don
Eaddy both hit for safe four-bag-
gers and Jim Vukovich poled one
that would have been good, but he
failed to touch first base and was
called out.
Snyder Catches Well
Defensively, Fisher thinks Gene'
Snyder a really fine catcher. "His
hitting hasn't been outstanding,
but he has looked real well behind
the plate and he has a very good
throwing arm," said Fisher.
Looking to the coming contest
with Wayne this afternoon, Fish-
er couldn't come up with a definite
starting line-up, but he said that
he is planning on using almost all
his players. He said that Glen Gir-
ardin is his probable for a start-
ing assignment on the mound.
Fisher is playing to win, but he
feels that Wayne will not give
Michigan as tough a battle as it
will find in the Big Ten, and there-
fore he wants as many players as
possible to gain experience.

'Wings Seek
Stanley Cup
A t Montreal
MONTREAL (IP)-The Montreal
Canadiens now have reached the
"do-or-die" stage in their Stanley
Cup series with the Detroit Red
When the two National Hockey
League teams meet here tonight
in the sixth game of the cup final,
the Canadiens will have to win to
stave off elimination. The power-
ful Wings now lead the best-of-
seven series 3-2 as a result of vic-
tories on Detroit ice.
Should the Canadiens win to-
night, a seventh and deciding
game will be played Thursday in
Detroit, where the Wings haven't
been beaten in 23 games.
The Wings, who have already
broken two playoff scoring rec-
ords, will be after two more in to-
night's game. Gordie Howe and
Captain Ted Lindsay each need
only one assist to tie the playoff
record of 12, while Howe is four
goals short of Maurice "Rocket"
Richard's playoff mark of 12.
In Detroit Sunday night, the
Wings soundly trounced the Cana-
diens, 5-1.

Paced by Bob McMasters' blaz+
ing one under par 71, the Wolver-
ine linksters opened their regular
season dual meet schedule yester-
day by soundly beating Coach Wil-
liam Joyce's University of Detroit
squad, 15-3.
McMasters, who put together
rounds of 35 and 36 for a 71 to-
tal played a very steady game all
the way, garnering three birdies
to offset his two bogies and give
him his one under par score.
McMasters' rounas were more
than enough to win all three points
from U. of D.'s Tom Watrous,
whose 77 (39-38) was tops for the
men from Detroit.
Sophs Make Clean Sweep
Two other Wolverines, sopho-
mores Fred Mickcow and Skip
MacMichael, made a clean sweep
by winning all three points. Mick-
cow carded a 78 to upset Ron
Stelter who had an 83. Stelter,
who last year played in Detroit's
number one twosome, fell down
on the back nine, carding a 43, and
lost any chance he had to gain
MacMichael's 77, which was sec-
ond best for Michigan was pushed
all the way by Ray Maisevich
whose rounds of 41-39 for a total
of 80 were just shy of seating Mac-
Michael's 40-37.

that these two men are still very

Murphy's highly-touted tennis
Although greatly impressed by
his team's showing, Coach Mur-

lop-sided triumphs over Vander-

were not too significant because
the Southern schools did not offer
the strongest type of competition.
"If we had met and defeated Tu-
lane or Louisiana State," Murphy
commented, "then we would be
sure of our strength." Tulane, with
national champion Ham Richard-

of the 1954 southern jaunt.
