Abbott, Michigan

gallop past Broncos

By ADAM OCHLIS
With every pitch and every out and
every inning, the legend of Jim Abbott
grows and grows and grows. The
eshman pitcher hurled a three-hit
hutout yesterday in leading the
Wolverines to a 1-0 victory over
Western Michigan at Ray Fisher
Stadium.
Michigan won the first game of the
doubleheader, 6-2, to begin the after-
noon sweep.
WITH THE biggest crowd of the
year on hand which included Channel
2 in Detroit, NBC, and Bo Schem-
bechler among others, Abbott, born
Pv ithout a right hand, performed as
well as any pitcher could hope for.
In his finest outing in a Michigan
uniform, the Flint native walked just
one, and that was intentional. He

struck out two, including the final bat-
ter of the game, and let only one bat-
ter reach as far as second base.
Abbott (3-0), was quick to credit his
fielders, who constantly covered the
gaps, and got good jumps off the bat-
ted ball.
"THEY MADE so many nice plays
out there," he said. "It's certainly not
too hard to pitch with that kind of
help."
The lone Michigan run came in the
second inning when centerfielder Dan
Disher tripled and third baseman Jeff
Kiel grounded out, scording Disher. A
6-2 senior, Disher came into yester-
day's action hitting just .074, and his
three-bagger was almost caught by a
diving Dave Krombeen in deep cen-
terfield.
"That was a catchable ball and we
need to catch that ball," said Western
coach Fred Decker. "And if we do
catch it, we still could be out there
right now."
BRONCO pitcher Bob Bevis mat-
ched Abbott the rest of the way,
allowing only four hits. Bringing an
earned run average of over four into
the game, Bevis pitched well, yet
Michigan coach Bud Middaugh
thought the Wolverines should have
scored more than once against him.
"We looked sluggish at the plate," he
said. "We took an awful lot of pitches
where we are usually a little more
aggressive."
The first game offered more offense
as both teams banged out seven hits.
It was scoreless going into the third
inning, when the Broncos rallied
against Michigan starter Dave
Karasinski, who was making his first
start of the season.
WITH NO outs, Western loaded the
3bases with two singles and a walk.
Middaugh wasted no time in going to
the hook, as he summoned freshman
Chris Lutz from the bullpen. The Fair-
field, Ohio native let up a run scoring
single to Rich Maloney, but then
retired the next thee in order. Lutz got
leading Bronco hitter John Vander-
Wal to ground out, struck out John
Hemingway, and forced Bob Reimink
to fly to right.
That was the turning point in the
game as Michigan (17-3) came right
back with three runs of their own in
the bottom of the inning. Right fielder
Casey Close's three-run home run was

the telling blow, as Michigan's num-
ber-three hitter continued his Super-
man-like performance at the plate.
The 6-0, 200-pounder is hitting .492
through the first nineteen games. The
homer was his ninth of the season, his
second in as many days and his 36th of
his career, a Michigan record. It was
also the first at Fisher Stadium this
season.
"HE'S SWUNG the bat very well in
key situations all year," said Mid-
daugh.
Lutz picked up his first win as a
Wolverine as he pitched two solid in-
nings before giving way to Paul Wen-
son.
Wenson threw three innings of one-
hit, three-strikeout relief to record his
second save.
BUT THE afternoon belonged to
Abbott, who seemed to get stronger as
the game progressed. In control of all
three of his pitches, Abbott had the
Bronco hitters flailing away all after-
noon.
"He was getting his off-speed pitch
over and he was also getting his curve
ball over at times," said Middaugh.
"They just couldn't sit on one pitch...
and that makes his fastball that much
quicker.
"It also helps to have a crowd like
we had here where everyone was
behind him and pulling for him."
Decker, who also recruited Abbott
out of high school, was just as im-
pressed.
"I thought he threw super. His
location was good and he was getting
ahead of all the hitters," he said. "He
just piched a good ball game.
"We have guys who can swing the
bat and he just overpowered a lot of
our guys."

Louisville E
DALLAS (AP) - Basketball fans
found nothing funny about a disc
jockey's April Fool jest that the NCAA
tournament results were in doubt
because the Louisville Cardinals
failed post-game drug tests.
KMGC disc jockey Mike Preston
made the report Tuesday 10 minutes
after he reminded listeners that it was
April Fool's Day, said station general
manager Ross Reagan.
"HE WARNED listeners that they
should be real careful today because
they're going to hear some wild
stories,"'Reagan said yesterday.He
said the station then ran a newscast
carrying the legitimate version of
Louisville's 72-69 Monday night vic-
tory over Duke.
"He came back on the air at about
6:40 a.m. and indicated that the Final
Four victory was in question and stay
tuned for more details and came back
and developed this silly story about
Louisville," Reagan said.
Preston quoted "sources" saying
there had been drug tests after the
championship game, that some Car-
dinal players had tested positive and
that the championship results were on
hold.
REAGAN SAID Preston admitted
the report was an April Fool's hoax
minutes later at 6:53 a.m.
"That's when we started getting the
calls," Reagan said, referring to

ingered by
listeners who telephoned the station
Tuesday about the false broadcast.
University of Louisville and NCAA
officials were not amused.
"I JUST can't see how anybody
would joke about that," said Kenny
Klein, director of sports information
for Louisville. He said he spoke with
Preston and was told a disclaimer
was run.
"What about the people who tuned
in and didn't hear the disclaimer?"

drug hoax
Klein said. "I think there's no place to
offer that."
Klein said he wasn't sure if team
members had heard about the report,
but that he had told university athletic
department officials about it. He said
he expected them to inform the
school's legal counsel, but didn't know
if any action would be taken.
Reagan defended Preston's
remarks as just good fun and said the
jockey would not be fired.

(AP) - Coaches and assistants ap-
peared surprised and even disappoin-
ted that the NCAA decided to recom-
mend a three-pointgoal in college
basketball, but they appeared
generally in favor of using TV replays
to assist in certain circumstances.
Yesterday, the NCAA rules com-
mittee recommended that the full
NCAA membership ratify changes in-
stituting a 19-9 three-point goal and
use instant replays to assist in scoring
and timekeeping calls. Videotaped
replayed would not be used to settle
arguments over judgment calls such
as fouls.
"I'M VERY surprised to see it
(three-point goal) pass," Notre Dame
Coach Digger Phelps said. "I didn't
realize it was under serious con-
sideration, based on the experimen-
tation by major conferences a few
years back, which generally seemed
to be negative."
Louisville assistant coach Jerry
Jones, who said he was speaking for
Coach Denny Crum, said his first
reaction to the three-point goal was
"that shot can cause as much harm as
benefit because it's not a high percen-
tage shot."
"I think it's a way of legislating
against zone defenses without really
saying so," Jones said.
"WE PUT the (shot) clock in and if
that didn't keep you out of the zone,
we'll put the three-point play in to
make you play man-to-man," Jones
said the NCAA was seeming to say.
On the TV replay, Jones noted:

"If they cannot correct an error by
normal channels - that is by
statistics or play-by-play - there's
nothing wrong with using a replay to
correct something like a clock error.
Anytime you can eliminate an error
that is something positive."
Jacksonville Coach Bob Wenzel said
he was totally against the three-point
goal- "from any distance. We've ex-
perimented with it in the Sun Belt
Conference a few years back, and we
didn't like it. I don't think many coac-
hes do.
"I think perhaps we're fooling
around with the rules too much,"
Wenzel said.
