The crackof the bat and the voice of the
umpire calling the balls and strikes will
be heard for the first time this year in
Fisher Stadium when the Michigan
baseballteam opens its, home season
thiis afternoon with a doubleheader
against Eastern Michigan.
And the Hurons, though only sporting
a 6-10-1 record, should provide the
Wolverines with some stiff competition
in the opener.
"I KNOW they're going to have a
good offensive club," said Michigan
coach Bud Middaugh of the Hurons.
"And they'll be just as good defensively
as last year."
In 1981, Eastern's defense was good
enough to carry the team to the finals of
the Mideast Regional in Ann Arbor,
fil11: 11 i=11A l
where it was defeated by Michigan.
Offensively, the Hurons' punch is
supplied by a lineup featuring four .300
hitters. Rightfielder Jim Irwin (.362,
14 RBI) leads the attack, followed
closely by infielder Jim Riggs (.351),
first baseman Scott Kemp (.348, 13
RBI), second baseman Howard Sim-
mons (.315) and speedy centerfielder
Greg Howe, who has stolen 10 bases in
11 attempts this year.
JUNIOR righthander Mickey Weston
(3 - 2, 4.68 ERA) istexpected to start the
first game of the twin bill for Eastern
and Jason Hanson (1-1, 1.88) is a good
bet to start the nightcap.
For Michigan, Middaugh tentatively
plans to start sophomores Rich Stoll
and Gary Wayne on the mound. Stoll
currently owns a perfect, 3-0 record and
has allowed only five earned runs in 22
innings pitched for an ERA of 2.05.
Wayne split his two decisions in Texas
despite having an ERA of only 1.50.
Manning the bullpen for the
Wolverines will be senior Tim Karazim
(2.0, 0.00), junior Steve Ontivero (0-1,
6.75) and freshman Jeff Hayward and
Matt Ruud. Hayward and Ruud, who
thus far have combined to shut out their
opponents in four and two-thirds in-
nings pitched, are the probable starters
in tomorrow's doubleheader against
THE MICHIGAN batting order, and
positions in the field subject to change,
will read like this: 1) Greg Schulte,
center field; 2) Chuck Froning, right
field; 3) Chris Sbor, third base; 4) Jim
Paciorek, first base; 5) John Young,
catcher; 6) Tony Evans, shortstop; 7)
Rich Bair or Ken Hayward, designated
hitter;8) Jeff Jacobson, second base;
and 9) Dave Stober, left field.
"I won't have a definite lineup until I
see how they're hitting before the
game," said Middaugh.
One thing, however, is certian. A lot
of power returns to the Wolverine
lineup in the number one, three and
four slots. As a leadoff hitter last year,
Schulte compiled a batting average of
.360 with three home runs and 35 RBI.
This spring, the senior has connected
for an average of .447.
SABO HAD an outstanding freshman
season -last year, batting .341 with a
team record 10 homeruns and 40 RBI.
Despite hitting the ball well when in
Texas, however, Sabo managed only a
.278 average. "I'm going to be batting
third so I'll have to do better for the
team to do well," he said.
Paciorek, batting cleanup, has done
just that. In the 11 game spring trip, the
two-time All-Big Ten selection riped
five home runs and batted in twelve
runs on his way to a .528 average.
Paciorek appears to be headed for his
best season ever.
Game time for today's doubleheader
is 1 p.m. Admission will be one dollar.
