The Wolverines have come to the

in 1924, the Wildcats have been able
to repulse the invaders with a decisive
defeat. In that game two years ago
Kentucky pr6bably showed the great
est playing ability, that has ever been
exhibited by a Wildcat baseball team.
Captain Riffe, playing at that time
his first year on the varsity, drove in
practically all of the runs, got three
hits out of three times up, and made
some spectacular catches in the out
field, acomplishments that were potent
factors in winning the game for Kentucky, 9 to 8. Last year, Michigan
