Schulte fills void left by

By SARAH SHERBER
When Bud Middaugh was hired as the
head coach of the Michigan baseball
team in July of 1980 he found a large
hole in the outfield of Fisher Stadium.
Someone was needed to fill the gap left
in center field by the departure of Rick
teach.
Greg Schulte had just completed his
first year at St. Clair Community
College when Middaugh recruited him
for this opening. Since then he has gone
mn to become one of the Wolverines' more
consistent and reliable players.
LAST YEAR Schulte was second on
the squad in hitting (his average of .360
as bettered only by Jim Paciorek's
367). And the 49 times he crossed
the plate is a single season record for
┬░Michigan.

This season, the Warren native has
again gotten off to a record setting
pace. After 14 games he is currently
sporting a .457 batting average, and
again it is Paciorek who is the only
Wolverine seeing regular play that can
claim a better average (.477).
.I think he's an outstanding
player," said Middaugh of Schulte.
"He's proven to be a team leader."
SCHULTE'S main concerns now
seem to be centered around the ball
club.
"My persd'nal goal is to help the team
in any way that I can," said the center-
fielder. "Most of my goals are team
goals."
Included in those goals is a return ap-
pearance in the College World Series.
Schulte has already made the trip twice
and he feels that another trip is not out
of the question.
WITH GUYS like Paciorek, (Chris)
Sabo, (Tony) Evans, (Jeff) Jacobson
and the excellent pitching that we have,
I think that we have a very good chance
(of getting to the College World
Series).".
Right now Schulte is faced with a
position that cannot be all that familiar
to him - that of sitting on the bench.
"He's coming off an ankle injury,"
explained Middaugh. "So we'll play
him in one game and DH him in the
next."-
THE INJURY, as Schulte explains it,
was caused by "horse play" in a

physical education class. And though it
has kept him from the playing field in a
number of games, once the weather
gets nicer Schulte is expected to return
to his position oi a full time basis.
Schulte, like any other student-
athlete, must face the rigors of jugling
an academic schedule with the com-
mitment he has made to baseball.
"It does take away a little from your
studies, but you have to be more
disciplined," said the senior of his two
careers.
BESIDES THE hours spent at prac-
tice, there is the time Schulte must
spend away from Ann Arbor on road
trips.
"There's a small advantage-when
you play on the road," he said. "It
brings the team together."
Schulte has found one more advan-
tage to road trips. Last year during the
College World Series he met his future
wife.
WITH HIS senior year coming to an
end, the exercise physiology major
must now concentrate on his post-
Michigan life.
"I've been playing (baseball) for a
long time," said Schulte. "I want to get
drafted end play for the pros."
Though Middaugh would not pass
judgement on Schulte's chances in the
professional league, he did admit that
several scouts have looked at the out-
fielder.
THIS SEASON has been one of the
best starts for the Michigan batsmen in
a long time, and Schulte has given his
all to help the 11-3 squad.
"He certainly has been a factor in all
our wins," said Middaugh of his out-
fielder, who currently has a perfect
fielding percentage.

Leach
Schulte and the rest of the Michigan
baseball team will have a chance to
prove their abilities today and
tomorrow when they take on Miami of
Ohio, at Oxford, in a pair of
doubleheaders.
The Redskins currently have a 5-4
record with all four of their losses
having been against Southern Illinois.
On Wednesday they defeated Wright
State 4-2.
Miami will probably start Kevin
Davis (1.84) and Mike Carnegie (4.36)
on the mound today. The leading hitter
for the Redskins is first baseman Mark
Monering whose average is currently
.464 after nine games.
