is pleased to announce

start, that would be great. I
wouldn't care either way. But
I'm used to relieving and
that's what I think I'll be used
Wapnick said that; despite
his excellent strikeout-to-
innings-pitched ratio, "I'm not
overpowering. I'll throw in the
upper 80's (miles per hour),
but I don't think my slider and
changeup enhances my
fastball. It makes it appear
Wapnick said he gets his
strikeouts by "getting ahead
with the fastball and then
throwing the slider."
Wapnick's philosophy is to
throw strikes and challenge
the hitters: "Just going after
people and just saying, 'Here
it is — hit it.' "
The Tigers open the regular
season April 9 in Boston, but
for Wapnick and his relatives,
April 13 will be even more in-
teresting. That's when the
Tigers open at home against

Greenberg Hopes
To Spare Sport

Steve Greenberg, in his
first year as deputy commis-
sioner of baseball, said he
hopes in the future the game
can avoid the problems that
led to this year's season-
opening delays.
"I've been through this
`war' before (as an agent for
players) and my hope is that
the sport can be spared this
`ritual' every few years,"
Greenberg said before the
owners and players reached
the agreement March 18
that ended the lockout.
Greenberg, 41-year-old son
of Detroit Tiger legend Hank
Greenberg, has become
chairman of Major League
Baseball Properties, the big
leagues' licensing arm, since
moving to baseball head-
quarters in New York in
He told the Buffalo Jewish
Review that a joint venture
has been signed with NBC
"to market the game of
baseball internationally, to
make it a more significant
sport. Being a medal sport in
the 1992 Olympics will help.
Russia already has a nation-
al team, and so do most of
the European countries.
"We think baseball can
evolve internationally like
basketball and we'll be in-
volved in serving as the
game's ambassador and pro-
viding clinics, coaching and
financial aid — and a market
for our product on TV."

Greenberg, who had been
the agent for the Tigers'
Matt Nokes and other
players before his appoint-
ment, said his father, who
didn't play on the High Holy
Days, would take him and
his brother Glen to museums
instead of temple on those
"It wasn't until I was 18
that I began studying and
learning about Judaism,"
Greenberg said. Today, he,
his wife and two daughters
celebrate Shabbat and have
attended synagogue fre-

13 players in the champion-
ship game.

played at the JCC Maple-
Drake Building Saturday
night, Akiva's ball-stealing
and its Ben Beres-led re-
