(Daily Sports Editor) !
Sixteen letters have been hand-
ed out to members of Ray Fish-
er's baseball squad but nowhere in
the list does one find the name of
Pete Perini.
Big Pete might have missed out
on a technicality (he attends Ohio
State University) but if anybody
ever deserved a block "M" for
services rendered to Michiganlon
the athletic field it is the hulking
righthander who hails from the
land where "Michigan" is consid-
ered a naughty word.
PETE HASN'T been too friend-
ly on the football field (he's that
Buckeye quarterback who has got-
ten off a couple of 70 yard punts
against the Wolverine gridders)
but when h6 steps onto a baseball
diamond he pitches as though he
has a soft spot in his heart for
As the saying goes "leave us
look at the record."
In 1947 Peter blew into town
as the ace hurler of a strong Ohio
State squad heralded as the sec-
ond best practitioner of his spe-
cialty in the Big Nine. The ex-
perts claimed that little Mary Rot-
blott of Illinois was the No. 1 man
in the Conference but Perini's
backers were prepared to argue
the point.
* * *
THE PERINI corner quieted
down a little after the first game

of the Michigan series. Big Pete
had blown a 3-1 decision thrust-
ing the Wolverines right back in-
to the thick of the Conference
Subsequent losses to Purdue
and Illinois, however, pushed
the Wolverines back into sec-
ond place one game behind Ill-
inois as the Illini moved down
to Columbus for the final series
of the season while the Wolver-
ines prepared to do battle with
tailend Northwestern.
Then as the Maize and Blue
proceeded to knock off the Wild-
cats twice, Mr. Perini stepped to
the mound for Ohio and calmly
shut out the Illini, 6-0, beating
Rotblatt in the process.
* * *
RESULT: a share in the Con-
ference title for the Wolverines.
This year Perini improved.
The big righthander wasn't
right all season and when
Michigan went down to Colum-
bus with a. big number '4' in
their loss column, Pete kept
their dim hopes for a share in
the Conference title still glow-
ing as he dropped an 8-6 deci-
sion in the series opener.
The next day Pete came back
in a weird eight hinning in which
the Wolverines scored nine runs
on one hit, pitched to one man,
the weak-hitting Tubby Raymond,
walked him, and then as though l

completely satisfied with himself
he left the mound.
* * *
encouraged by this performance,
promptly returned to Ann Arbor
and whonped the stuffings out
of Wisconsin in the first game of
their season's finale. The Wol-
verines also took the second game
when, with the Wolverines lead-
ing, 6-0, the Badger coach couldn't
see eye to eye with the umpires,
a fact which lead to Wisconsin's
forfeiting the game.
By a series of events which
saw Iowa drop a game to weak
Northwestern and Indiana and
Purdue split their two game ser-
ies the Wolverines found them-
selves in a three-way tie with
Indiana and Iowa for second
place with Purdue one game up
on the pack.
The catch was that Purdue had
two more games left-with Ohio
State. And, of course, the inevit-
able happened.
PERINI pitched his bestBgame
of the season, setting the Boiler-
makers down on four hits in the
opener and the demoralized Rive-
teers were submerged beneath a
22-hit blast, 15-4, on the next
afternoon to give Michigan, In-
diana, and Iowa a tie for the Big
Nine Crown.
If Perini doesn't deserve a
Michigan letter for that he at
least deserves a hearty thanks.
