Did you know?
By Herbert Ruskin
. - - That Michigan baseball squads
under Coach Ray Fisher have had4
only three losing seasons and have
had only two losing Conference sea-
suns. In 1930, the squad won nine
while losing 15 and tying one. In the
1935 season, Michigan's nine lost 12
and won 11. The other season in
which the Wolverines did not end up
with a .500 average or better was
1940 when the record read 10 and 12.
In all of the other 22 years, however,
the team has finished with a record
of more wins than losses.
. . That last year the Michigan
coaching staff acquired three new
full coaches. They were wrestling
coach Wally Weber, golf coach Bill
Barclay, and hockey coach Vic Hey-
... That at one time in Michigan's
athletic history the school had teams
in cross-country and fencing. Fenc-
ing as a varsity sport lasted from
1927 until 1933. Cross-country began
in 1920 and was dropped in 1933.
. . . That Michigan squads have a
X667 average when it comes to win-
ning first contests in varsity ath-
letics. Those teams which won their
first games or meets were football,
track, baseball, tennis, hockey, and
golf. Only basketball, wrestling, and
swimming have losing records for
opening day performances.
... That Michigan holds a 21-to-
13 edge over her arch rivals Minne-
sota in football. Two of the games
were tied. The last time that Minne-
sota won was in 1942 when the Go-
phers gained a 16-14 victory over
our Wolverines.
... That the track squad has the
honor of holding the first Western
Conference championship that Mich-
igan ever won. They won it in the
1901 season scoring 38 points to win
over eight other squads. Wisconsin
finished second with a total of 28

ference teams will travel 36,540 fewer
passenger miles during the coming
Big Ten season than they did last
year, according to the estimate made
by Commissioner of Athletics, K. L.
Allcwing 35 players, coaches, train-
ers, etc., to a traveling squad, the
nine Conference schools will use a
total of 643,230 passenger miles as
compared with 679,770 in 1944. Be-
cause of the normal changes in
schedules, five teams will travel 97,-
9'0 passenger miles less than last

year while the other four will use
61,390 more.
Iowa will be the big saver, travel-
ing 32,340 less than in 1944 while
Minnesota saves 24,080, Illinois 20,-
930, Michigan 14,700 and Indiana
On the other hand, Wisconsin will
travel 23,310 additional miles, Ohio
State 21,000, Northwestern 13,160
and Purdue 3,920. The Buckeyes' big
increase in passenger miles is due
mainly to their game at Minnesota
while the Wildcats add most of their
mileage on the trip to Ohio State.

In event of a transportation crisis,
the Big Ten schedules are so com-
pact that all the travel can be done
in coaches and most of the trips
made by daytime runs.

Mentor Pioneered
For Organizationi
At the first meeting of the newly-
formed National Association of Col-
lege Baseball Coaches Thursday and
Friday in New York, Ray Fisher,
baseball mentor at Michigan for the
past 25 years and dean of Big Ten
baseball coaches, was elected first
vice president of the organization.
Everett Barnes, baseball coach at
Colgate, was elected president of the
association, whose purpose is the bet-
terment of college baseball. Specific
aims include the promotion of a bet-
ter understanding between college
and organized ball clubs and an im-
provement of the handling of col-
lege games.
Originated Idea
Co-originator of the idea for the
organization with Bill Reid, Colgate
athletic director, in the late 1920's,
Fisher stated yesterday that the need
AL Service Roster
Shows First Decline
CHICAGO, July 2-(/P-The man-
power situation apparently is over
the wartime hump in the American
League which today showed a de-
crease in its servicemen's list for the
first time since Pearl Harbor.
The League service bureau report-
ed that the junior circuit's total of
players in the armed forces reached
a peak of 268 two weeks ago, but
since has tapered down to 263.
This resulted from the release from
service of four well-known players,
Hank Greenberg of the Detroit Tig-
ers: Red Ruffing, New York Yankee
pitcher; Sam West, Chicago White
Sox outfielder; and pitcher Pete Ap-
pleton of the St. Louis Browns-and
a rookie pitcher, Charles Bowles of
the Philadelphia A's.

for such an association has been
severely felt by college coaches for
many years, and that baseball is the
last college sport to form such an or-
ganization. The present group, he
added, is the first national baseball
coaches' association.
The meeting, caled by Barnes, and
Joe Bedenk, Penn State mentor, was
attended by around 30 coaches, Fish-
er stated, including Wally Roettger,
Illinois baseball coach, and repre-
sentatives from Michigan State and
Western Michigan.
Territories Designated
The association plans to meet an-
nually, Fisher said, to discuss recent
problems of college baseball coaches.
At the sessions Thursday and Fri-
day, the country was divided into
eight sections whose baseball coaches
will be contacted by a number of the
executive committee. Fisher was ap-
pointed chief of this section, which
includes practically all of the West-
ern Conference territory. His duties
include the expansion of member-
ship of the organization in this re-
Rickey Speaks
Principal speaker at Friday's meet-
ing was Branch Rickey, general man-
ager 'of the Brooklyn Dodgers, who
urged close co-operation between col-
lege and professional baseball. Rickey
is a former Michigan baseball coach
and recommended Fisher as his suc-
cessor when the present coach took
over Wolverine clubs. The other
speaker was Arthur Patterson of the
New York Herald-Tribune.
The formal constitution of the or-
ganization, which was drafted at the
meeting, will be available soon, ac-
cording to Fisher, who expressed
great enthusiasm over the organiza-
tion. One of the purposes which he
hopes it will accomplish is the sal-
vaging for college ball of players who
are signed by professional teams
while still in high school and later
discarded by those teams.
