Koch To Pitch Against Boilermakers;
Diamondmen Battle Illini in Twin Bill
By AL SINAI
Michigan's baseball team, faced
with the tremendous task of win-
nfng their remaining games to
maintain a title chance, play Pur-
due today and Illinois in a double-
header tomorrow at Varsity Field.
The Wolverines currently hold
fourth place in the Conference
while both Illinois and Purdue are
breathing down their necks with
a 4-4 record.
"We've been thin all year, but
these weekend games will find us
in worse shape than ever," 'said
Coach Ray Fisher.
Fisher was especially upset by
the loss of third baseman Dave
Brown, who will miss at least the
next three games with a dislocated
shoulder. Brown has been hitting
at a .403 pace and has fielded ex-
Al Koch, 1-0 in Conference play,

Boilermakers Friday hoping to im-
prove upon the Wolverines' dismal
exhibition of pitching this season.
However, their hittihg has held
up extremely well, as the Wolver-
ines have belted the ball at an
overall .309 clip. Jim Dickey leads

Purdue started out fast with
three straight, Big Ten wins, but
has had pitching trouble since
then. Either Dave Hull or Gerry
Lawlis will probably go against
"Purdue's pitching is about on
a par with oars." said Fisher.

Seniors Frank Schwartz and
James Flynn are the stalwarts
of the Illini pitching staff. Right
behind them is Junior Bob Tedes-
co, who has one of the finest curve
balls in the conference.
Illini Boast Hitters
Illinois also boasts of having one
of the leading home run hitters in
the conference. He is John Jura-
sevich who has blasted four round-
trippers to tie for the Big Ten lead
while slamming .469 to stand third
in hitting. The Illini are tied for
the league leadership in fielding
John Herrnstein,. who has a
conference record of 1-2, will face
Illinois in one of Saturday's games.
He hopes to be able to regain the
strikeout pitch which he seemed
to lose against Northwestern.
Liakonis Tops Pitchers
Nick Liakonis, who now leads
the Wolverines in strikeouts with
24, will also work against the Illini.
Liakonis has proved to be one of
the Wolverine's steadiest pitchers.
He has an overall record of 2-1,
and stands 3-1 for the season.
"If- our pitching comes through,
and we stop making the bad mis-
takes that have already cost us
a great chance for the crown, we
should be able to win this week-
end," said Fisher.

Michigan's dominantly - young
football squad will split up tomor-
row for the annual Blue-White1
spring game-the climax of a five-+
week talent hunt.+
The game will be held at the
Stadium and will begin at 2 p.m.
There is no charge for the game
and free programs will be avail-
Predict Large Crowd
Athletic publicity director, Les
Etter predicted that "possibly
6,000 or 7,000 may see the game,
if the weather is right." About
4,000 watched the spectacle last
year, when the second team Whites
upset the Blues, 25-12, in regula-
tion time, but later lost in an
"extra period," 31-12.
The past could easily repeat it-
self with Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan forseeing "a hotly contested
affair with so many new men."
"The squads will be more evenly
balanced than in the past, and we
should have a good game," said
Backfield Coach Bump Elliot,
echoing Oosterbaan's enthusiasm.
Coaches devoted yesterday to a
close look at freshmen and re-
serves, hoping to find a right com-
bination to use against the first
Ptacek Named Quarterback
In a late move, Bob Ptacek was
named by the coaches as the
probable starting quarterback, re-
placing injured Stan Noskin. Dar-
rell Harper will move into Ptacek's
left halfback position.
John Spidel and Jim Sytek will
back up Ptacek at quarterback.
Sytek starred for the Whites in
last year's game and was a varsity-
killer in two pre-season practice
games last fall.
Guard Paul Poulos and end Bob
Johnson, reserves last fall, have
worked their way into the prob-
able lineup. The only freshmen
hopeful is Dick Syring, who may

CAPTURES I-M CROWN:
Psi OmegaWmins Pro Softball Title
By STEVE ROGERS
Exploding for eight runs in the
top of the seventh inning, Psi
Omega whipped the Lawyers' Club
11-3 and became the pro fraternity
softball champions yesterday at
PAK Takes Second
Phi Alpha Kappa won the second
place professional fraternity
championship by trouncing Phi
Chi 11-0. Delta Theta Pi edged out.
Alpha Chi Sigma 8-7, and thus
became third place champions.
Psi Omega was forced into over-
time by the Law Club, who came
from behind to tie the score three
all at the end of regulation time.
Hit Fluke Homer.
Joe Schneider led off in the top
of the seventh with what looked
like a solid single to left. The ball,
however, hit a rock on the first
bounce, hopped over a greatly
surprised left fielder, and gave
Schneider a home run.
Schneider's hit opened the gate
for the Psi Omega hitters, who
up to the seventh inning had been
limited to three runs on six hitsj
by the Law Club's hurler, Jerry
A single and a more legitimate
home run by Psi Omega's winning
pitcher, Bob Dulude, followed
Schneider's poke, and before the
inning was over, a total of eight
runs were scored.
"The roof really caved in" said1
Leipply, when he finally retired
Surprisingly enough, the game
was quite a pitcher's battle until
the zany seventh. Psi Omega's
starting hurler George Hoaglin
was throwing an almost perfect
game until he ran into control
trouble in the fifth frame.
He retired 12 of the 13 batters
he faced in the first four innings,
six on strike outs. Hoaglin gave up
only one hit; the only runner to
reach base was on a single to left
in the second. Psi Omega's left
fielder, however, let the ball roll
through his legs giving the lawyers
their first run.
Hoaglin retired the first batter
to face him in the top of the fifth,
but then he ran into his control
problem. He walked four of the
next five Law Club batters, forcing
in another lawyer run and bring-
ing Bob Dulude to the mound.
Dulude walked the first man
he faced, but then he settled down,
holding the lawyers hitless and
scoreless the last innings.
