The bleachers are scrubbed, the
multi-colored pennants are hung, and
the field is groomed. Fisher Stadium is
primed for the NCAA Mideast baseball
regionals that kick off today at 1 p.m.
when the Wolverines do battle with the
Mid-Ainerican Conference champion
Chippewas from Central Michigan.
There will be no easy games for the
Big Ten champions this weekend, and
today's opener is a good example. Like
the Wolverines, Central Michigan is a
hot ball club. The Chippewas clawed
their way to the top of their conference
with ten wins in the last eleven league
games, clinching the title on the final
Saturday of the season with a rain-
soaked 9-2 victory over Western
Michigan.
CMU's starting lineup is marred by
only one hitter below the .300 mark
(catcher Andy Kruse at .280) and
features two players hitting over .400
(third baseman Dave Pagel, .414, and
designated hitter-catcher Cary Kipke,
.407).
The Chippewa pitching staff is for-
tified by a pair of tough lefthanders,
Mike Brecht (6-3, 2.74) and Curt Young
(6-1, 3.36), and the experienced junior
righty Mark Fellows (8-1, 4.12).
According to Michigan coach Bud
Middaugh, the Chippewas' style of pley
under MAC Coach-of-the-Year Dave
' ?ilitsrisaggreasiv... - 4 . ,
"Their mab w es is predicated

around a running game-bunting,
stealing, hit and run", said Middaugh.
"They like toput pressure on the defen-
se. Pitching and defense will be the
deciding factors."
In pursuit of one of these factors,
Middaugh has appointed freshman
righthander Scott Dawson as his star-
ting pitcher for today's game. In

choosing Dawson (9-1, 2.18), the first
year Michigan mentor by-passed the
more experienced junior Mark Clinton.
Middaugh is not worried, however. "I
don't think pressure will be a factor.
He's (Dawson) just been throwing so
steady for us. We really just have to
play good defense behind him."
Since any team that loses two games
is automatically eliminated, the
Wolverines will pull out all the stops in
the pitching department. If Dawson is
knocked out of the box, Middaugh will
go directly to his aces-David Nuss in
long relief and Steve Ontiveros or Scott
Elam in the late innings.
The Michigan lineup will remain in-
tact, for the most part. George
Foussianes will be the designated hitter
with Tony Evans at shortstop. If the
Chippewas open with lefty Brecht, Tom
Fredal will start in left- field for the
Wolverines.
Middaugh could not be lured into ven- ,
turing a guess as to who will emerge '
victorious from the Mideast tour-
nament. "Coaches don't predict-at
least this one doesn't" he said. "Any one
of the four teams could win it-we're
just thrilled to be hosting the games."
The Wolverine-Chippewa game will
begin at,1 p.m.; followed by Nebsaska{-.
BrighamYoung at 4 p.m.
