'Gas HLouse Gang'
Is Monic ker Given
To Scrappy Nine
Ray Fisher's hard hitting ball club
may technically be known as the
Michigan Wolverines, but to the rest
ofg the Big Ten they became
famed last season as a scrappy, um-
pire heckling miniature edition of
the "gas house gang," a "monicker"
that was first applied to the St. Louis
They were first dubbed the "gas
house gang" at Illinois when they
treated the Illini fans to a real show-
ing of how umpires should be in-
formed of their mistakes.
They really hit their peak at North-
western, however, when Coach Fisher
led the parade of assault after several
obviously poor decisions. And any-
one who thinks Fisher is not one
of the best when it comes to umpire
heckling should devote an afternoon
to listening to the Michigan mentor
"ride the umps" when the decisions
are breaking against his charges.
More than a decade of umpire tongue
lashing in the major leagues saw to
Ray's becoming an expert in this field.
When the umpire calling them from
behind the plate at Northwestern bel-
lowed "strike" on a pitch to Steve
Uricek which even the fans admitted
was high, the entire Michigan team
rose to protest. Said the ump after
listening to their protests "sit down
Fisher, I've heard of you." "Yea?"
retorted the Michigan manager, "well
I've never heard of you."
