Diamondmen Bolstered
By Four Sophomores



(This is the first in the series evalu-
ating the prospects of the Michigan
baseball team.)
When any new sports season
begins, one of the first questions
that arises is, what is the caliber
of the sophomores?
People want to know the ability
of the new blood.
The new blood on the Michigan
baseball team, which is given a
chance of helping the team, con-
sists of three refugees from other
sports plus Ralph Hutchins.
Promising Infielder
Hutchins, says head coach Ray
Fisher, has a good pair of hands,
but he has trouble getting rid of
the ball. If he can overcome this
handicap he has a good chance of
becoming the Wolverines' starting
third sacker.
He also will back up Ken Tip-
pery at second base.
The three refugees are John
Herrnstein and Bob Ptacek of the
football team and Gary Starr from
the hockey squad.
Herrnstein is given a good
chance of breaking into the lineup
in the outfield or on the mound.
Ptacek, at the moment, is one
of the second-line outfiielders. ,
Starr, who was a good looking.

freshman team last year, is a lead-
ing candidate for the first base
Coach Patanelli says he has
promise there. "He is a capable
fielder, real good around the bag
and he shows posibilities as a
Await Judgment
All of these judgments, of course,
hinge on the appearance of these
men when they get out of Yost
Field House and onto the diamond.
As coach Fisher put it, "In here
everything is different, when they
get outside their timing will be off
for a few days, but after that we
will be able to get a good line on
some of these new boys."

NCAA CONTENDER -Max Pearson, (face showing), Michigan
130-pounder, is shown here preparing to escape from his Michi-
gan State opponent. Pearson, reigning Big Ten Champion, hopes
to add other laurels this weekend in the NCAA Wrestling Cham-

Canham Seeks First-Place Contenders

Enter Five
It's NCAA time for the nation's
collegiate wrestlers and the best
in the land have gathered this
weekend at the University of Pitts-
Although there are just five or
six full teams entered in the meet,
every school in the nation that
fields a wrestling team will be
sending any outstanding individu-
al or individuals to the meet.
Rodriguez Seeks Title
Michigan, which is not vying for
team honors, is however, sending
a strong representation to the na-
tional tournament. Of the Michi-
gan delegation, Mike Rodriguez
looks like a good bet for a nation-
al championship.
The Michigan captain, who in-
jured himself in the nationals last
year, hopes to make amends for
his ill-luck this season.
Pearson Has Chance
Max Pearson looks like another'
possible champion at 130-lbs. and
Jack Marchello could make trou-
ble for the nation's best. Rounding
out the Michigan entries are
Steve Zervas and Karl Lutomski.
In the race for team honors, it
looks like a good old-fashioned
dogfight, with about five teams
figuring to be title-contenders.
Leading the pack is Oklahoma,
coached by Port Robertson, one
of Michigan Coach Cliff Keen's
former aides.
Oklahoma Challenged
Also in the running are Pitts.
burgh, Penn State, Oklahoma A.
& M., and Iowa State College,
which is coached by former Michi-
gan wrestler Harold Nichols.
Most of the mid-western and
eastern schools are not sending
full teams but their best indivi-
duals are entered.
Commenting on the national
tournament Coach Keen said,
"This is not a team event for us,
but a chance for the individual
to do his best.!

(This is the second of two articlesO
previewing the chances of Michigan's
track team during the coming out-
door season.)
The secret to success in the Big
Ten track world, according to
Michigan Coach Don Canham, lies
in the first-place strength of a
By first place strength Canham
means those men who can go out
and get you five points in the Con-
ference finals.
Great Importance
Of course, the importance of
depth on a team cannot be un-:

derestimated, but it only takes a
little bit of figuring to see that
four first-place finishes are worth
as many points as ten fourth-place
In order, therefore, to assess the
strength of any track team, care-
ful attention must be given to its
first place potential.
At the Conference indoor finals
in Columbus the Wolverines took
first places in two events, Dave
Owen won the shot put and Jim
Pace woax the 60-yd. dash.
'Sure Thing'
Of these two men, Owen is al-
most a "sure thing" to repeat and


Pace has better than an even
chance. If Michigan could get just
a couple of more five-point finish-
es, there is little doubt that they
would win the crown.
There are several men on the
Wolverine squad who hold a pos-
sible answer to Michigan's first
place problem.
In the high jump there is Bren-
dan O'Reilly, who missed tieing
for first at Columbus by a bare. two
Bob Rudesill, who was injured
during the indoor season, is work-
ing out again and could prove a
threat in either of the hurdle
By far the biggest unfired gun
in the Michigan arsenal is Dick
Flodin, if he is in condition, has
the potential to win either the
220-yd. dash or the 440-yd. dash.
Great Potential
In the outdoors last year at
Minneapolis Flodin anchored the
mile relay team with a blazing
:46.5 clocking. This time stands
out even more when one realizes
that the Conference mark for the
440-yd. dash around two turns is
