'OFF-COLOR' STEELE STANDS OUT
Sprinter an exception
By MARK FISCHER
Ronn Steele doesn't exactly fit the
mold of a top intercollegiate sprinter.
For one thing, he's white. Besides being
Michigan's only white sprinter, he is
usually the only white to end up in the
finals of each of his four events (the 400
meter relay, and the 60-yard, 100-, and
"In the prelims, the ratio will be
about two (blacks) to one (white),"
said the smiling sophomore. "By the
time it gets down to the finals, I'll be the
only one in there and I'll kind of stand
STEELE DOESN'T mind this
uniqueness, though. "It's been that way
since high school, so I've gotten used to
it. It doesn't bother me at all-it's just
kind of amusing. Like at meets, people
will be yelling out jokes about it. Other
than the fact that I expect this kidding
at meets, being the only white (sprin-
ter) doesn't affect me at all."
But by being what he is-white as
well as very fast-Steele is uninten-
tionally keepng alive somewhat of a
"tradition" which has developed in
Michigan track over the past few years.
Before Steele arrived, Dough Hennigar,
who holds the Michigan 100-meter dash
record, was the only white sprin-
ter-and Hennigar followed

NEW YORK - The Milwaukee
Brewers, held without a base runner for
five innings, jumped on Cy Young
Award winner Ron Guidry for four runs
in the sixth yesterday and opened the
season by defeating the world cham-
pion New York Yankees 5-1 behind
Mike Caldwell's eight-hit pitching.
Caldwell, whose 22-9 record a year
ago earned him the runner-up position
in the Cy Young voting behind Guidry's
25-3, allowed a run and three hits - two
of them flukes - in the first inning, but
only two over the next five innings.
Guidry, who had won 37 of 41
decisions since Aug. 10, 1977, did
everything last year except pitch a no-
hitter, and the Yankee Stadium crowd
of 52,719 began to anticipate that - and
perhaps even a perfect game - when

CHICAGO - Richie Hebner drove in
four runs with a homer, a pair of
doubles and a single yesterday to lead

the Mets' fi st run, homered in the four-
th inning and capped a three-run rally
in the fifth with a two-run double.
