The winter hibernation officially
ends for the Michigan baseball team
this weekend in Muncie, Indiana
when the Wolverines play four
games with the Ball State Cardinals,
a doubleheader on both Saturday and
The series with the Cardinals
represents the first games for the
Wolverines in the Midwest this sea-
son. The team has already played in
the Las Vegas Classic and made a
trip to Florida, compiling a record of
Michigan's strength to this point
has been pitching. While the current
team ERA (3.91) is not equal to last
year's mark (3.15), Michigan coach
Bill Freehan has received fine per-
formances from a trio of starters.
Senior righthander Rick Leonard,
junior lefthander Kirt Ojala, and
sophomore righthander Jason Pfaff
have combined for 46 and 1/3
innings in 6 starts and have a
combined ERA of 1.94.
Ojala is the most experienced
hurler from last year's Big Ten
runner-up. The southpaw, who was
3-2 last season, has been named the
co-captain of this year's squad.
Although he has yet to win this
season, he boasts an ERA of 2.02.
Sophomore Todd Marion has
been shutting the door on Wolverine
opponents without fail. Marion has
not allowed a run in his 9 and 2/3
innings while striking out 13.
Whoever is on the mound for the
Wolverines will have his hands full
with the Cardinals, who return 12
lettermen from last year's team that
went 27-27 and finished fourth in the
Mid-American Conference. Senior
rightfielder Brad Stewart brings his
.352 average back to the Ball State
lineup. Stewart earned an honorable
mention spot on the All-MAC team
for his performance.
"Brad's a veteran performer," Ball
State coach Pat Quinn said. "He
gives us an experienced bat in the
number three spot."
Another top returnee for the
Cardinals is senior centerfielder Barry
Godown. Godown played only 16
games last year after transferring
from Kishwaukee Junior College.
The speedster stole 18 bases during
that short span and led the team in
batting average, hitting .400.
"Barry Godown will be a full-
time performer for us in centerfield,"
Quinn said. "I look for him to be a
very solid, very exciting centerfielder
Quinn has inserted last year's
MAC rookie of the year Louis
Williams into the starting rotation.
Last season, the reliever averaged 7.2
strikeouts per nine innings.
Pitcher/first baseman Jason Pfaff follows through on his swing in a 1989
game. Pfaff looks to take on a leading role as Michigan travels to
Muncie, Indiana this weekend for a four-game series against Ball State.
The Wolverines have compiled a 7-6 record and the Michigan pitching
staff has recorded a 3.91 ERA thus far this season.
