Al Baseball Team To Play Crucial Weeken

d Tilts

When Captain Danny Cline leads his teammates onto the dia-
mond Saturday afternoon, the Wolverines will be battling to stand
alone atop the Western Conference standings, a spot which they now
share with Minnesota.
With only one loss to each team, the Saturday doubleheader with
the Gophers will undoubtedly pit the two top teams in the conference
in a showdown battle.
Remembering the 1953 double victory, when the Wolverines cop-
ped both the Big Ten and the NCAA titles, Michigan's squad will be
out to recapture some of the prestige lost in last year's third place
Meet Iowa Today...
The doubleheader will be previewed this afternoon, when Michi-
gan meets Iowa, a mediocre team this season but one' which con-
quered the Gophers for their only loss. The encounter with the Hawk-
eyes will feature fastballer Bill
Schoof, a 6-6 basketball player,
whose pitching downed Minnesota N
in a five hit, 7-3 victory. All in all,
Iowa has lost 11 games so far this
season, but six of those have been
by only one run. The Hawkeyes
now reside in the ninth spot in the
Big Ten with a 1-3 mark.f
Minnesota has quite a different:
looking record. The Gophers have
a 15-5 overall mark for the season
with five conference wins includ-
ed. They opened the Big Ten sea-
son with a 12-8, ten inning victoryf
over Illinois, followed by a double
win over Purdue. Two victories and 4i
a loss to Iowa completed confer-
ence competition until the Gophers,
meet Michigan State at East Lan-t
sing, today. The Spartans, last DICK ANDERSON
year's titlists, may have a chanceti AN er
to upset Minnesota, although they_
also have been having troubles. The Spartans are tied for third in
the Big Ten with five other schools.
Coach Dick Siebert indicated that he will probably start his two
top pitchers against Michigan. Two righthanders, Rod Oistad, with
a 5-1 record, and Gerry Thomas, 5-0, will hurl for the Gophers.
Aiding the mound corps will be sophomore centerfielder Dick Ander-
son, veteran leftfielder Ken Yackel, a three-letterman, and co-captains
Roger Anderson and Bill Horning, who lead the hitting department.
* * * *
t Wolverine Lineup ,..
For both games, the Wolverine lineup will be virtually the same.
The outfield of Bruce Fox, Howie Tommelein, and Cline will have
Jim Vukovich at first, Hen Tippery at second, Moby Benedict at
shortstop, and Don Eaddy at third. Frank Ronan will be ready to fill
any of the infield spots if needed.
Michigan Coach Ray Fisher will start Don Polosky on the mound
against Iowa, with Marv Wisnewski and Bill Thurston hurling against
the Gophers. He will have Jim Clark, Glenn Girardin, and Mark Fer-
relli ready for relief roles.
With Michigan's pitching not as strong as it should be for a
championship squad and three of the better pitchers in the conference
throwing Against the Wolverines, all three games should shape up into
a real battle.
Well, here's looking to another conference championship to add
to the Michigan scorebooks. A double defeat of the Minnesota Gophers
will help. So lets play ball!

And now the real work begins.1
After many weeks of intra-squad
workouts with four easily won
dual meets interspersed, Michi-
gan's highly-touted tennis squad
begins its rugged Big Ten sched-l
ule with two important meets to-
day and tomorrow.
This afternoon at 2 p.m. on
their home courts the Wolverines1
meet Northwestern, the first of
the nine opponents which crowd
their schedule in the next sixteen
days. Tomorrow Coach Bill Mur-
phy's squad makes a one-day fly-
ing trip to the University of Wis-
consin at Madison.
Wisconsin Strong
Wisconsin has won eight of ten
dual meets this season. This record
is highlighted by an 8-1 shellack-
ing of Iowa, one of last year's
Big Ten leaders.
The Wildcats, holding one of
the two victories over Wisconsin
-an impressive 7-2 triumph-will
be an even greater threat to Mich-
igan's hitherto untested prestige.

Northwestern will be the appear-

Coach Murphy has chosen his
outstanding sophomore star, Barry
MacKay, to face Kuhn in what
should be the match of the day.
MacKay is undefeated in inter-
squad competition and has con-
sistently starred in practice.

Sophomores Mark Jaffe and
Dick Potter will represent Michi-
gan in the second and third slotss
respectively, today against Wild-
cats Paul Bennett and Keith An-
derson. Bob Paley, Captain Bob
Nederlander, and Pete Pauluse will
