DETROIT (AP) - Tiger
Stadium, home of the Detroit Tigers
for 76 years, should be abandoned for
a new, open-air grass field, a
consulting firm recommended.
Hellmuth, Obata and Kassabaum
Sports Facilities Group of Kansas
City said in their report that a new
stadium is preferable to building a
domed, multi-purpose arena or to
renovating the present stadium.
The consultants estimated the
new stadium would cost between
$57 and $81 million, but with fees
and other costs, the price could reach
$117 million. A domed stadium
would cost about $157 million, the
The recommended facility would
seat 55,988 people and would have
parking for 560 cars. Tiger Stadium
seats 52,806 fans and has only
privately operated parking lots.
The future of the stadium, which
has view-blocking pillars and
outdated vending and restroom
facilities, has been debated since at
least 1970. Three sites in the
neighborhood near Tiger Stadium
previously have been suggested as
locations for a new one.

SPECIAL TO THE DAILY
OKLAHOMA CITY - After a
disappointing third-place finish at the
Big Ten championships, the fifth-
ranked Michigan wrestling team is in
a position to put that behind them at
the NCAA championships.
After the heavyweight matches in
the second round, the Wolverines
were in second place with 21.25
points. Oklahoma State was first
with 25.25, followed by Michigan,
then Oklahoma (21) and Arizona
State (20.5). Iowa State was fifth
with 19.5, Big Ten champ Iowa was
in sixth with 17.5 points
In yesterday's opening round, the
Wolverines won six of eight
matches. 126-pounder John Moore
was pinned at six minutes 31 seconds

by third-seeded Kendall Cross of
Oklahoma State while Sam Amine
was pinned at 3:42 by No. 1 seed
Tim Kreeger of Iowa State.
If a wrestler loses an opening
round match he can only advance to
the next round if the person who beat
him wins his next match.
Both Moore and Amine stayed in
the tournament and won their
Michigan coach Dale Bahr was
pleased with the Wolverine per-
formance. "I think everyone wrestled
to their ability or better except for
(Joe) Pantaleo. I think it was a case
of first match jitters for him."
Pantaleo, the second-ranked 158-
pounder defeated Mike Flynn of
Edinboro by the narrow margin of 4-
3. In the next round Pantaleo returned
to form with a 16-1 technical fall
over Jay Landolfo of North Carolina.
Other Wolverine wrestlers were
more consistently impressive. Fifth-
ranked 134-pounder John Fisher
scored an 8-0 decision over Mike
Moreno of Iowa State and a technical
fall over Miles Nilson of Eastern
Michigan. Fisher, who has lost the
past three seasons in the quarterfinals,
will face a formidable opponent in
eighth-ranked Mike Lingenfelter.
Larry Gotcher, fifth-seeded at 142
pounds, pinned his first round oppo-
nent Danny Hayes of Missouri, after
which he said "It feels good. That's
an example of what I'm going to do."
In his second round match Gotcher
defeated Joe Cesari of North Carolina
State 2-1, advancing him to the
Ninth-seeded Mike Amine, at 167
pounds, pinned Steve Blanner of Mis-
souri in 2:56. In the second round, A-
mine advanced with a 13-12 decision
over Notre Dame's Chris Geneser.
Unranked 190-pounder Fritz
Lehrke and unranked heavyweight
Bob Potokar impressed in the early
rounds but fell late last night. Lehrke
won his first two matches before he
lost a heartbreaker to Chris Short of
Potokar, who has suffered through
a somewhat lackluster season defeated
sixth-seed David Jones of Cal State-
Fullerton 3-2 before losing in the
second round to 11th-seed Chris
Thornbury of Tennessee-Chattanooga
1-1 (regulation), 3-2.
With all eight wrestlers stilll in
contention, the sky is the limit for
Michigan. But Iowa assistant coach
Barry Davis warns, "It's too early.
There are two days left. You don't
count the first day, just the last day."
