'M' nine to trek

to Florida

By ADAM OCHLIS
Another year. Another top twenty
ranking. Another spring trip down
south.
Such is the yearly routine for the
Michigan baseball team, which is
currently in sunny Florida and will
play eight games in the next ten days,
starting today with contests against
Villanova and Western Michigan.
INCLUDED in the annual spring

nament Michigan won four years
ago. Wolverine head coach Bud Mid-
daugh has decided to bring his club
back to the Sunshine State after
having traveled to Texas the last
three seasons.
In a way, the start of the baseball
season is welcome for Middaugh, but
in others it is not.
"We've been working awful hard,"
said Middaugh, who has posted an

'We want (to go to Florida) and represent
Michigan the way Michigan should be
represented. At Michigan you're expec-
ted to win.'

again, it will be hard to match last
season's team record of 55 wins.
"EVERY coach wants to win every
game, but I think you have to be
realistic," said Middaugh. "I think
the thing you're hoping will happen is
that your kids play within themselves.
And if your kids play within them-
selves and the competition is better,
then maybe you can understand why
why you got beat."
Michigan will face host team
Rollins, South Carolina and North
Carolina in the week-long, four-team
tournament. With South Carolina
ranked seventh in the nation and Nor-
th Carolina a traditional top twenty
team, Middaugh said that this will be
the most competitive spring trip since
he's been at the helm.
A disadvantage for the Wolverines
is while they have done all their
preparation indoors, all their com-
petition in Florida is either on the lat-
ter part of their spring trip or they
are from the South. This, along with
good competition, could cause
Michigan to get out of the blocks a bit
slow.
"If you have the chance of working
inside or outside I think you are going
to go outside," said Middaugh, "and

trip is the Rollins Baseball Week
Tournament in Winter Park, a tour-

impressive 269-87-1 record in his six
years at Michigan. "It (the start of
the season) kind of pops up on you and
you know it's coming, but from a
coaching standpoint you never feel
that you're ready."
The 12th-ranked Wolverines will
be hard pressed to match last
season's 9-0 spring trip, but then

hopefully as the trip goes on we will be
able to improve."
MIDDAUGH adds that while he is
pleased with the way his team has 1
practiced, all but two regulars, Casey
Close and Matt Suida, will have to be
replaced from last year's team that
won the Big Ten's East Division and
placed second in the South I Regional
during the NCAA tournament.
"The thing that you hope is that you
have them motivated enough and you
can come up with the right com-
binations out there where everybody,
feels that they're getting a shot at it
(winning a position)," he said. "We
want to make it as competitive as
possible."
However, since every pitcher
returns from last season and there are
quality players who can take over for
last year's departing starters, being
ranked 12th in the nation is no sur-
prise.
"It's nice to think that the people
think enough about your program to
put you in that elite class, but at the
same time you have to go out and show
people that you deserve it."
By starting freshman pitcher Jim
Abbott in today's opener, and giving
other first-year players experience,
Middaugh does not doubt that
Michigan's record might be imper-
feet before the home opener Marc
24th. Still, he admits that he likes
what he sees.
"If we were to go down south and
not do well, I wouldn't give up on this
club because I think we have some
ingredients here that if we get all cir
cuits going we have a chance to be a
competitive club," he said. "We want
(to go to Florida) and represent
Michigan the way Michigan should be
represented. At Michigan you're ext
pected to win."
