Diamondmen Host MSC
In Series Opener Today

By JIM BAAD
Seven more baseball games to
play and they all have to be vic-
tories.
This is the situation Michigan's
ball team faces as it heads for a
crucial three game weekend series
with Michigan State. The home
Sgamehere today and the double-
header at MSC tomorrow with the
Spartans are called by coach Ray
Fisher "the biggest hurdle we have
in front of us."
With Michigan and Minnesota
coming down the home stretch of
the race all tied up, the pressure
is really on. Both teams face
schedules of approximately equal
strength, but Fisher feels the Wol-
verines' is a little weighted be-
cause of the Michigan State
games.
Tied For Fourth
Michigan State, although cur-
rently sharing fourth place with
Northwestern, was last year's
Conference champion and the
team "still contains tremendous
potential."
"State could be one of the best.
teams in the circuit, man for
man," said Fisher, "but they have
? played too poorly in the field to
expect many victories. Their hit-
ting, however, is far above any
other team's in the league."
The statistics back Fisher up.
The Spartans are currently lead-
ing the league with a phenomenal
.339 hitting average, but all this
is wasted when you find that they
have committed 33 errors in nine
games, a ridiculous figure.
Therefore, if Michigan State
continues its batting prowess and
comes up with three good defen-
sive games, Michigan's title chanc-
es may be blotched.
Names Starters
Fisher has picked Mary Wis-
niewski and Jim Thurston as his
pitchers in the first two games,
but hasn't yet decided who he will
start in the third one. He named

Walt Godfrey, Ed Hobaugh, and
Dick Idzkowski as the Spartan
pitchers most likely to start
against Michigan. "I seem to know
more about State's pitchers than
my own," he quipped.
A problem Fisher is facing now
is a "more than slight" lack of,
hitting on the part of a couple of
his players. He would like to make
some shifts in the lineup, but feels
that he can't without weakening
the team even more.
Eaddy Leads Hitters
Other than this, Michigan's hit-
ting is nothing to get glum over.
They now rank second in the con-
ference with a .311 average. Third
baseman Don Eaddy has collected
14 hits in thirty-four official trips
to the plate to lead Michigan's hit-
ters with a hefty .412 batting av-
erage.
Winning all three games would'
certainly be a feather in the Wol-
verines title-bid cap, but no one
is looking for an easy time. Just
for the record, State beat Michigan
two out of three last year; Michi-
gan wound up in third place.

weekend.
Michigan, which has not lost a
match this season, and has a 2-0
Conference record, will try to ex-
tend its winning streak against
Notre Dame at 2:00 this afternoon
and Ohio State University tomor-
row morning at 10:30.
MacKay in Top Spot
Coach Bill Nxarphy will send the
brilliant sophomore Barry Mackay
in the number one singles, either
against Notre Dame's Walter
Clarke or Maurice Reidy. Mark
Jaffe will occupy the number two'
spot.
In the other singles matches
Coach Bill Murphy has selected
Dick Potter, Al Mann, Bob Paley
and Pete Paulus for the numbers
three, four, five, and six spots.
They probably will battle against
the Irish's Bill Reale, Dean Rich-
ards, Harry Smith and James
Rich.
Although Murphy has not se-
lected the starting line-up for the
Ohio State, match, it is probable
that he will place Bob Mitchell in
the number one singles position.
Mackay and Potter will be in
the number one doubles match in
both meets, while the number two
and three doubles will feature Jaf-
fe and Paley, Mann and Bob Ned-
erlander respectively.

CHICAGO - Sam "Toothpick"
Jones, towering Chicago Cub right-
hander, hurled a dramatic no-
hitter against the Pittsburgh Pi-
rates yesterday 4-0, striking out
the entire Pirate side in the ninth
inning after walking the bases
full.
Jones faced 31 batters, walk-
ing 7, as he fashioned the first
no-hitter at Wrigley Field in 38
years. He struck out six.
In pitching the season's first no-
hitter, Jones also became the first
Negro to hurl one in the majors.
Standing before television cam-
eras immediately after the game,
Jones said:
"I was just out there throwing
fast balls and curves. Clyde Mc-
Cullough, catcher deserves all the
credit. He knows all the batters
and kept telling me how to pitch
to them. I just threw what he told

The second annual running of
the Big Ten Relays will be held
tomorrow afternoon at Northwest-
ern.
"The whole reason for drawing
up the meet was to give more play-
ers a chance to participate," said
Assistant Track Coach Elmer
Swanson. Each team participating
in the meet is required to place at
least two men in each event which
it enters. Unlike other track meets,
the Big Ten Relays are not scored
on a point basis, but on a team
basis instead. The winner of the
most events wins the meet.
The Wolverines face extremely

stiff competition as they plan to
enter men in both hurdles, all the
relays, and all the field events.
Running in the Open 100-Yard
Relay will be the dangerous Jim
Golliday of Northwestern. The
Wolverines are entering John
Johnson in this event.
Ron Wallingford is running in
the two-mile relay, while Jim Love,
Jessie Blount, and Junior Stielstra
will respresent Michigan in both
the high and low hurdles. Swan-
son predicted that Michigan, In-
diana, and Ohio State would be
the toughest teams in the two-mile
relay.
Kramer To Throw Discus
Ron Kramer will throw the dis-
cus for the Wolevrines and Dave
Owen will enter the shot put.
IMark Booth and Howard Liver-
ance will participate in the high
jump. Bob Appleman and Tom
Skimming will participate in the
pole vault, and Steilstra and Hen-
dricks will be entered in the broad
jump.
Swanson predicted that Michi-
gan would make a good showing
in the distance medley, the 880 re-
lay, the one-mile relay, and the
two mile relay. He picked Illinois
and Michigan State to make the
best showing in the sprint medley,
and Minnesota to win the 440 re-
lay.

TODAY'S GAMES

By TOM BEIFRLE
Fred Micklow may not be the
greatest golfer ever, but as far as
the Wolverine golf team is con-
cerned he certainly rates.
Even though he has had his ups-
and-downs during the season as
has the golf team as a whole, his
play has been consistent enough
to give him the number three
berth' in the lineup for a ma-
jority of the matches. On occa-
sion, Coach Bert, Katzenmeyer
has moved him up to the number
one position.
Purdue Jinx
Micklow has been defeated In
individual scoring matches only
twice this season, both losses com-
ing in matches against high-rank-
ing Purdue. When he did manage
to down a Boilermaker he did it
in fine style, as he earned team
scoring honors for the day by fir-
ing a 155 on the Lafayette course.
Micklow's chances to play in the
coveted number one spot came in
the Michigan State meets, in
which he played the morning
rounds while Bob McMasters sub-
stituted for him in the afternoon.
In the meet at State, Micklow put
on a one-man show as he blazed
around the 18 in a one-over-par
P n 73.
Putting Weak
Putting has been one of Mick-

..

low's sore spots this season. In
the matches against Purdue and
Northwestern, his poor putting was
the decisive factor in his game as
it sent his 18-hole scores soaring
to a near 80 average.
This trouble in mastering the
greens has been with Micklow for
more than just this season. Last
year, playing in the State Ama-
teur tournament he was tied for
first at the end of the regulation
18 holes. In a sudden death extra
hole he lost by three-putting a
three-footer.
Impressive Record
Micklow's impressive record as
a golfer extends back to his high
school days during which he play-
ed three years of varsity golf. He
qualified for the National USGA
Junior championship tournament
three years in a row, and got to
the quarterfinals in '52 and '53.
In 1952 he won the state cham-
pionship in the Hearst National
golf tournament and placed fourth
in-the national.
The golfer's thrill of a lifetime
came early to Micklow and in
unusual abundance. When he was

twelve, he got his first hole-in-
one on a 135 yard hole. Four years
later he got another one while
playing in a high school match
in Toledo.
Micklow is rated by Katzen-
meyer to be one of his top sopho-
more prospects and if performance
to date is any indication his game
will be a welcome addition to the
potential of the Michigan link-
sters.
