Co-catain Bair is

catching on

By RANDY BERGER
Rich Bair has served time. For two
years Bair rode the bench waiting for
the chance to take over the catching
responsibilities for the Michigan
baseball team.
Bair really didn't have much of a
chance to take the catching duties from
Gerry Hool and John Young, both of

whom left to play in professional
baseball, but it appears now that.ser-
ving time has finally paid off for the
junior English major.
"WHEN I CAME here I knew I
wouldn't jump right in," said Bair.
"I'm not the type of player like (star-
ting third baseman) Chris Sabo who
can adjust right away. I have to be nur-
tured more."

A.L. East
Yankees to bounce back ... .
.. Tiger fans, c 'mon be serious
By JEFF BERGIDA
A Daily sports analysis
The so-called baseball experts have, in recent times, developed all sorts of
methods for predicting pennant races. Everything from logarithms to "the
law of competitive balance" has been used in order to come up with the four
teams which will face off in the divisional playoffs in October.
These formulas are simply unnecessary in looking at the American
League's Eastern division for 1983. A simple once-over should convince any
student of the game that fans hold the key to this question. The final stan-
dings of the seven teams can be stated for certain just by studying the faith-
ful of each club.
The. New York Yankees are synonymous with the word "baseball"
throughout the world. From Ruth to DiMaggio to Mantle to Reggie, the hero
of every decade has been affiliated with the Bronx Bombers.
Like the players, Yankee fans also have a quality which does not appear in the
supporters of other clubs. They are realistic. When the Yanks are bad, the
fans are not forgiving.
King George rules
This attitude is best reflected in the chief Yankee fan, George M. Stein-
brenner III. Steinbrenner refuses to put up with anything but the best and
when he doesn't get it, the world knows he isn't happy.
When pitcher Doyle Alexander was struggling through a horrendous year
while being paid $2.2 million, Steinbrenner insisted that he get a physical
examination because "I'm afraid my outfielders might get hurt playing
behind him." Would the Red Sox owner ever say something like this? Does
anyone even know who the Red Sox owner is?
Steinbrenner is attacked by fans of the teams that usually finish behind
him for "buying all his players" (brilliant observation) and trading away all
of his young talent. If one looks at the record, he would see that, of all the
minor leaguers the Yanks traded away, only Tim Lollar, Chris Welsh, and
Damaso Garcia are helping other teams. Rick Cerone and Jerry Mumphrey
were acquired in the deals in which these players were given up.
George will not put up with two years of incompetence. He "bought" Steve
Kemp, Don Baylor, and Bob Shirley to avoid this. The Yankees will return to
the top of the A.L. East.
Baltimore Oriole fans are tough, just like their team. They know that the
team will not let down following the retirement of Earl Weaver because: 1) a
manager doesn't make much of a difference and 2) new skipper Joe Altobelli
is a fine manager.
The Orioles are solid throughout the line-up and should battle the Yankees
down to the last week of the season when the best relief pitcher in baseball,
Goose Gossage, will bring another flag to the ballpark in the Bronx.
Quietly confident. Two words that best describe Milwaukee Brewer fans.
And they should be hopeful. Look at their team.
Do Cecil Cooper and Ben Oglivie do anything but hit line drives? Does
Robin Yount ever fall apart in the clutch? No and no.
Unfortunately for Brew Crew faithful, all the hitting in the world won't
bring about a repeat of last year's success. With Cy Young winners Pete
Vukovich and Rollie Fingers laid up indefinitely and Don Sutton and Mike
Caldwell ready for Social Security, Harvey Kuenn may have to put a pit-
ching machine on the mound. Third place in '83.
Tigers keep dreaming
The Detroit Tiger fan. Deep in his heart, he knows his team will pull its an-
nual collapse but he can't admit it. So he entertains himself with the notion
that "we've got the only Hall-of-Fame announcers" and that's just great. If
Kell and Kaline were on the field instead of Tom Brookens and Chet Lemon,
they might have something to cheer about. "How 'bout them Tigers?" Four-
th place. Again.
It's tough to analyze Toronto Blue Jay fans because there aren't any.
People in Canad are kind of primitive and don't realize that the Blue Jays
have come a long way since the bad times when the battery was Jerry Gar-
vin and Ernie Whitt. Now it's Luis Leal and Whitt.
But seriously, Toronto may be the most improved team in the junior cir-
cuit. Look for them to finally escape the cellar and move up two notches.
Boston fans are shell-shocked and don't even realize that it's been 65 years
since they've won anything. Management has been responsible for many of
the problems by doing bright things like trading Fred Lynn for Frank
Tanana (now on Texas) and Joe Rudi (Oakland). The best thing that can be
said about the front office is that it got rid of Mike Torrez. Less pitching than
Milwaukee. Sixth place.
When they hired Mike Ferraro, the Cleveland Indians became the fifth
team in the division to have a former Steinbrenner employee as manager.
Baltimore's Altobelli, Toronto's Cox, Houk of Boston, Billy Martin and
Ferraro all worked for George. Cleveland and its fans won't be helped much.
Last place.

By sporting a .391 batting average,
assuming the number-one catching
duties, and being named co-captain
(along with Jeff Jacobson) as a junior,
it seems that Bair has switched from a
subordinate role to that of a leader. All
three of these accomplishments seem
to point back to the past two years of
serving time as an apprentice.
First case in point, the .391 batting
average.
"I THINK raising my batting
average has all been due to the
acquisition of experience, having the
ability to play every day in the sum-
mer, the coach's increased confidence
in me and relaxing more,"'said Bair
who last year batted only .267.
"My hitting has also improved
because I've become more disciplined
at the plate waiting for the right pitch.
I'm still not a big home run hitter, but I
just try to work on getting on base con-
sistently and letting the other players
drive me in."
Wolverine head coach Bud Middaugh
echoes these same sentiments about
his new number one catcher. "He con-
tinues to get better offensively, but I
think he has to drive in more runs;"
said the Wolverine mentor. So far this
year in 42 at bats Bair has only five
RBIs.
SECOND AREA of proof, the num-
ber one catching duties.
"Watching Hool was invaluable in
teaching me how to improve my cat-
ching and learning college baseball,"
said Bair. "Also, playing everyday in
the summer helped. Orleans (the team
Bair played for in the Cape Cod
League) didn't have any other catchers
so I was getting plenty of game time."
Both of these factors have subsequen-
tly meant that Bair has been more than
ready to finally assume the top cat-
ching spot on the team. So far in the
1983 campaign, Bair has played in 17 of

18 games, more than enough playing
time for any catcher, amateur or pro.
FINALLY, THIRD case in point;
being named captain.

"THERE WAS NO better
prototype," stated the Dayton, Ohio
native. "He was mature and someone
you can turn to on and off the field."
The basic job of a captain is to act as
a liason between the team and the
coach and as Bair believes, someone
the other players can look up to.
"A captain has to be level-
headed, stay unemotional and on top of
things and provide a role model for the
rest of the team. I just hope I can
provide the leadership by just playing -
consistently."
It appears that serving time has
finally paid off for Rich Bair.

... off the bench
"It's pretty unusual to have a junior
as a co-captain," added Middaugh.
"Most of. the captains in the past have
been seniors. It just shows he has a lot
of respect from teammates."
To gain such leadership status, Bair
once again looks back to his
predecessor, Hool, who was the team's
captain two years ago.
