THE SPORTING VIEWS
-
Some fearless forecasts for
'87 major league baseball
By PETE STEINERT
Training camps are in full swing, and opening day for baseball is
only a few weeks away. With that in mind, here are some sure bet
predictions for the 1987 season:
-Catfish Hunter, Bert Campaneris, and Sal Bando come out of
retirement and join Reggie Jackson with the Oakland A's to see if
they can recapture some of their 1970s magic. The plan
backfires-Oakland wins seven games all season.
-Longtime Detroit News ,sports editor Joe Falls resigns when he
learns that the Boston Red Sox are going to tear down his beloved
Fenway Park in order to build a new domed stadium. Falls is so
heartbroken that he vows never to watch another baseball game as
long as he lives.
*With talks of player and umpire strikes looming in the air, the bat
boys shock the baseball world with a strike of their own, demanding
six-figure salaries.
'The San Diego Padres' fiery new manager Larry Bowa does not
make it past the fourth inning of any game all season without being
ejected.
'Calvin Schiraldi of the Red Sox cannot rebound from his subpar
post-season performance last year, and at midseason finds his earned
run average hovering around 50.00. Manager John McNamara finally
gives up on him and sends him to the minors, never to be seen again.
*Pitcher Al Nipper, also of the Red Sox, demands that Boston trade
him to a National League East team so he can pursue his newfound
love affair of beanballing the New York Mets' Darryl Strawberry.
'Former American League outfielder Gorman Thomas is seen
playing softball at Softball City in Detroit. Gorman always looked
like he belonged on a softball diamond drinking beer with the boys,
didn't he?.
'San Francisco Giants' manager Roger Craig gets caught up in the
music video craze and makes his own video on how to throw the split-
fingered fastball. His prize pupils Mike Scott, Jack Morris, and Mike
Krukow make special guest appearances.
'The Atlanta Braves' Damaso Garcia holds another one of his
uniform-burning ceremonies and quits the team when he hits just .054
for the month of April. He blames his slump on manager Chuck
Tanner for refusing to give up his uniform number seven, the number
Garcia wore with the Toronto Blue Jays where he was a .280 hitter.
'While broadcasting NBC's game of the week, broadcaster Vin
,,Scully comes up with one of his super duper stats: "Did you know,
Joe (Garagiola), that (Don) Mattingly bats .567 on Saturday
afternoons against righthanded pitchers with mustaches on fields with
natural grass when at least 35,000 people are in the stands, and he's
had pancakes for breakfast." Uh, yeah.
'Finally, the Cleveland crse continues when the Indians lose in
the American League playoffs to the Texas Rangers in extra innings
of the seventh game. This coupled with the Browns' loss to Denver
in the NFL's AFC championship game last season causes
Clevelanders to lose all hope of ever winning a championship-in
anything.
The heat is on.
This summer may be your last chance to
graduate from college with a degree and an
officer's commission. Sign up for ROTC's
six-week Basic Camp now. See your
Professor of Military Science for details.
But hurry. The time is short.
The space is limited. The heat is on.
BE ALL YOU CAN BE.
ARMY RESERVE (FFICERS' TRAINING CORPS

By IAN RATNER
After a season of tremendous
adversity, four Michigan wrestlers
have an opportunity to go out in a
blaze of glory or simply flicker out
at the NCAA nationals this
weekend in College Park,
Maryland.
Doug Wyland, John Fisher, Joe
Pantaleo, and Mike Amine qualified
for the nationals in the Big Ten
tournament two weekends ago in
Madison. Iowa captured the Big Ten
crown and will be seeking a record
tenth consecutive NCAA title. In
college sports, only Yale's golf
team has been so prolific, also
winning nine straight national
titles.
Although winning the national
championship is an impossibility
for the team, gaining All-American
status and placing in the top ten
remains within reach for the four
Wolverine participants.
"We've got some guys who can
do something here," said head coach

Dale Bahr. "If we get three All-
Americans then we can finish real
high."
Here's a look at Michigan's four
competitors:
-With the effects of
mononucleosis lingering,
sophomore Doug Wyland still
managed to qualify for the nationals
at 118 pounds with a third-place
finish at the Big Ten tournament.
His 26-4 record and top ten ranking
make him a legitimate threat for the
118 pound title.
"Doug's feeling better than he
did at the Big Ten's," said Bahr.
"He looked and acted real tired
before the Big Ten's. He's a lot
spunkier this week and a lot more
positive."
Wyland qualified for the
nationals last year and was named
"Best Freshman" by Amateur
Wrestling News . He won one
match at last year's championships,
but he has his sights on more lofty
achievements this time around.

Wyland's biggest obstacle is North
Carolina's Al Palaces, the
tournament's only undefeated
wrestler(40-0).
-John Fisher returns to the
nationals after missing last year's
event with a shoulder injury. The
redshirt sophomore, wrestling at
134 pounds, was named the
nation's most outstanding freshman
as he took third in the Big Ten's
and fourth in the NCAAs during his
freshman campaign.
Fisher has been a terror on the
mats this season, going undefeated
since December and cruising to a
Big Ten title. Sporting a 34-3
record and number three national
ranking, Fisher is primed to win it
all this weekend.
-Joe Pantaleo, frustrated by a
third place finish in the Big Ten's,
would like nothing better than to
make amends this weekend at
College Park.
The 158 pound sophomore heads
into the tournament with a 37-6-1
record.
-Mike Amine (167 pounds)
failed to qualify for the NCAAs as
one of the top four seeds at the Big
Ten's, but a strong showing in the
league's toughest weight division
earned him a wild card berth as
selected by the conference coaches.
Said Amine, "I'm going to take
it one match at a time. But I'll be
shooting for an All-American
ranking, a finish in the top five."

Hayes remembered

by lBoamu
COLUMBUS (AP)- Woody
Hayes was remembered as both a
fierce competitor and a man of
compassion yesterday at a memorial
service on the field where he
coached Ohio State University's
football team for 28 years.
A crowd estimated at 15,000
heard tributes by Hayes' only son,
Steven; his successor at Ohio State,
Earle Bruce; his fiercest coaching
rival, Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler; former players, and
university officials.
HAYES, who won 205 games
at Ohio State, more than any coach
in the university's history, died at

1l others
age 74 of a heart attack last
Thursday at his suburban
Columbus home.
S Schembechler, who played for
Hayes at Miami of Ohio and
assisted him at Ohio State before
becoming coach at the University
of Michigan, said the Ohio State-
Michigan rivalry enhanced the
friendship of the two men.
"When you know you're
competing against the best...no
matter how fierce the competition
gets, it just brings you closer
together," he said.
He said Hayes, "was the greatest
football coach the (Big Ten)
Conference ever had ."
