The Michigan baseball team received
a warm sendoff to the College World

the ballclub's banquet held at
Romanoff's Hall.
Catcher Gerry Hool, named Saturday

Mideast regional tournament, received
the team's MVP award for the season.

Middaugh had words of praise for his
club. "I think this team typifies life.
Nothing comes easy. You've gotta work
for it. I don't think I've ever had a club
give me more than this club's given me.
