Batsmen have roller coaster campaign

By JIM DWORMAN
Although the Michigan baseball team
did not play any of its games in an
amusement park, the team's 1982
season was one big roller coaster
ride-filled with ups and downs.
Unfortunately for the Wolverines,
their season, like a coaster ride must,
ended on a downhill. On May 22,
Michigan lost games to both Ohio State
and Minnesota, eliminating the team
from both the Big Ten tournament and
consideration for an NCAA tournament
bid.
"WE JUST HAPPENED to have a
bad day in the tournament on the day
when we had to go back-to-back,"
reflected Michigan coach Bud Mid-
daugh on the dual defeats. The 5-4 loss
to Minnesota marked the first time that
a Middaugh-coached Michigan team
did not win the conference champion-
ship. It was also the first season since

Micidaugh's arrival in 1980 that the
Wolverines did not advance to the
College World Series.'
Nonetheless, the season did have
plenty of high notes before the final,
one-day nosedive. Michigan won more
games, 44, than any previous Wolverine'
ball club. Included in those 44 victories
were streaks of 18 and 11 consecutive
wins. And the second streak came in the
midst of the Big Ten season to pull the
Wolverines from a second-place tie
with Michigan State into a first-place
tie with the Buckeyes and a spot in the
conference playoffs.
Leading the way for Michigan was
the hitting of Jim Paciorek and the pit-
ching of Rich Stoll and Tim Karazim.
Paciorek, the Big Ten's Most Valuable
Player, finished his collegiate career
by batting .443 with school records of 17
home runs and 65 runs batted in. Called
by Middaugh "the finest athlete I've

ever coached," Paciorek's career
records include most runs (162), hits
(254), home runs (32) and RBI (183)
and the highest batting (.375) and
slugging (.628) percentages.
STOLL, A SOPHOMORE, broke Scot
Elam's single-season Michigan record
by winning 12 games against only one
defeat. The hard-throwing righthander
will return his 1.83 earned run average
to the Fisher Stadium pitching mound
in 1983.
Karazim was the Wolverines bullpen
ace in 1982. The senior, who may return
for his final year of eligibility in the
coming season, accumulated a perfect
8-0 won-loss record with a 1.61 ERA.
Karazim, however, needs only a few
more credit hours to graduate and may
forego his fifth-year option.
Four contributors who will be lost to
the Wolverines are second-team
all-Big Ten center fielder Greg
Schulte (.379), catcher John Young
(.259), left fielder Dave Stober (.261)
and shortstop Tony Evans (.282). The
first three graduated, while Evans, who
would be a senior, will play professional
baseball.
TWO OTHER PLAYERS who may
not return, depending on how they fare
in the professional draft, are seniors
Steve Ontiveros and Jeff Jaconson.
Despite pitching inconsistently, On-
tiveros managed a 6-2 record with a 1.94
ERA. Jacobson, always a good fieler at
second base, batted a surprising .389.
Wolverine starters who will definitely
return include sophomore designated
hitter Ken Hayward (.349), junior cat-
cher Rich Bair (.267s), junior third
baseman Chris Sabo (.257) and junior
pitchers Bill Shuta (6-3, 4.25), Dave
Kopf (4-1, 3.58) and Gary Wayne (3-2,
1.74). It is Shuta and Sabo whom Mid-
daugh feels are the keys to the
Wolverines success.
BOTH SHUTA AND Sabo slumped as
sophomores after fine, freshman
seasons.
Middaugh is also hoping for the
development of sophomore pitchers
Jeff Hayward and Matt Ruud, and out-
fielder Jeff Minick.
While Middaugh cannot truly
evaluate his team until after the draft,
he has set one or two goals. "We would
like to carry on the tradition and cer-
tainly bring the Big Ten crown back
home-where it belongs."

The 1982 Wolverine softball team is a tough act for the 1983 team to follow. Last
season, the women softballers chalked up their most successful season ever an
wound up competing in the AIAW World Series in Norman, Oklahoma, where the
Wolverines took third place. The team's final record was 31-14.
"Last season was very successful," said coach Bob DeCarolis. "It was more
successful than we ever seriously anticipated. We rewrote practically every
record."
OUT OF THE 30 team records kept on the softball team, the 1982 squad broke
about 25, according to DeCarolis, including the team marks for most wins and
most home runs.
"We didn't just break them-we literally smashed them," the Wolverine coach"
said.
It may be difficult, however, for this season's team to improve upon those recor
ds. Gone are Diane Hatch, last season's MVP and the holder of nearly every
Michigan offensive career record, and catcher Tammie Sanders, last year's'
recipient of the Maize and Blue award, which is given to the player who shows the
hardest work and dedication.
BUT THE WOLVERINES are not totally depleted. Last year's top pitcher, Jan
Boyd, will be returning, as will last season's Rookie of the Year, Mena Reyman.
DeCarolis sees this season as an opportunity to rebuild. "It is going to be a
pivotal year," he said. "We are going to lose a few people. However, I think that if
we can get one or two more recruits that can come in and play for us right away
and if we can get the same type of intensity from the senior class as we did last
year, we can be contenders for the Big Ten Championship."

NOWHERE TO GO BUT UP:

Linksters rely on youth

By BUDDY MOOREHOUSE
For the Michigan men's golf team,
there is good news and bad news for the
coming season.
First the good news: The team's top
performer in several tournaments last
year, sophomore Dan Roberts, is retur-
ning.
NOW THE bad news: All-Big Ten

selection Ed Humenik and Steve Mad-
dalena, the other two top golfers for the
Wolverines last season, are gone.
But if you're a true optimist, there is
more good news. Michigan finished in
ninth place in the Big Ten in 1982, so
there is nowhere to go but up. But the
Wolverines are going to be relying on a
lot of inexperienced players to help

them climb back up the Big Ten ladder.
"We're going to be very young,"' ad:
mitted acting head coach Jim Carras
"We'll only have two players bac
(Roberts and Gary Zenkel) who played
all the time for us."
BUT THE play of Roberts in 1982 haS
given reason to think optimistically for
Michigan's future. The Ypsilanti native
was one of the few bright spots for the
Wolverines last season, leading the
team in several tournaments. He paced
the Blue squad in the Big Ten tourney,
shooting a four-round total of 293 and
ending up in 11th place in the individua
standings. He had a- season-best 71 i
that meet.
"He's gonna be a hell of a player,"
Carras predicted. "I can only see him
