19-year old from Attica, Indiana.
"I've worked equally hard this year
as.I did last year," explained Stoll."t
don't take the approach that just
because I'm a sophomore that I don't
have to work hard. I still feel that I'm
fighting for a position."
FOR A PITCHER who leads the staff
in complete games (5), innings pitched
(36), and strikeouts (24), to be worried
about keeping a position either shows
that Stoll is extremely paranoid or that
probably the latter.
"He's eager to learn and as long as a
person's willing to learn he'll get better.
If people think they've seen all they're
going to see of Rich, they're wrong.
There's still a lot of improvement
you're going to see from him."
Stoll's willingness to learn probably
originates back to when he first started
playing baseball. Unlike most kids who
have their father as coach, baseball
wasn't forced upon him.
"MY STEPFATHER didn't push base-
ball on me: If I wanted to learn he was
there to help me." By the time Stoll was
14, he had shown enough baseball skill
for his family to move to southern
Illinois so he could play in the American
Legion League. It was then, in his
junior year :in high school, that; the
thought of playing in the major leagues
began to blossom.
by pro scouts," added Stoll.
That dream, because of this year's
statistics, would seem to be ap-
proaching reality. However, right now
it is hard to say if signing a contract
would mean postponing a college
degree for Stoll.
"MY ULTIMATE goal is to play
professional ball, but right now it
depends if anybody had the right of-
fer," he said. "It's really up in the air."
As for now, Stoll's main concerns are
keeping the ball down and helping
Michigan win the Big Ten. Most people
would attribute Stoll's success this year
to the fact that he has been keeping his'
fastball "which moves like a sinker"
low at the plate.
"I'm the type of pitcher that likes to
use the defense," said Stoll. "If I make
the hitters hit the ball on the ground I
know that the defense is there to back
ADD THIS to the fact that Stoll has
seldom gotten behind hitters this
season, as proven by only allowing nine
walks in 36 innings pitched, and the
result is a winning formula. "You have
to put yourself in a pressure situation as
though you had the bases loaded with a
3-2 count on the batter," he said.
As far as the team's goals are con-
cerned, Stoll thinks that the Wolverines
are capable of repeating as Big Ten
champs. "The Big Ten is our initial goal
but ultimately we want to finish better

cluding two doubleheaders this
weekend against Detroit. For a r
workhorse like Stoll, the rain and snow n
have been demoralizing. "I like to keep
working and after a complete game I
only need a four-day rest," he said.
"However, the hard part is keeping
ready mentally not physically. We've
been on hot streak and all we want to do
is go out and win some more games.

KANSAS CITY (AP) - Amos Otis hammered a grandslam
home run in the first inning last night, sending the Kansas
City Royals on their way to a 4-2 victory over the Detroit
Tigers in their 1982 American League home opener.
The veteran center-fielder blasted a 1-1 offering from Jack
Morris deep into the left-field bullpen.
LARRY GURA, after surrendering a leadoff singlb to Ed
Miller in the first, retired 12 straight batters as the Tigers
dropped their season opener. Detroit's scheduled opener was
postponed because of snow earlier in the week in Detroit.
