All-American Paciorek hits .350; U.S. wins

Michigan Wolverine slugger Jim Paciorek scored
the tying run din the bettom of the ninth inning last
night in Seoul, South Korea, as an American college
All-Star team edged a Korean collegiate- crew, 4-3,
and clinched the seven-game series, 4-2.
The Koreans had broken a 1-1 tie with two runs in
the top of the ninth. Frank Castro (a Miami, Florida
baseballer) reached first on an infield single, and
Paciorek followed suit with the same. Catcher Harry
McCulla (from Central Arizona Junior College) than
blasted a three-run game-winning homer. Michigan
State's Brian Walcutt was the winning pitcher.
Paciorek's one-for-three sixth game gave him a
six-for-10 total over the last three contests, all of
which the Americans won. He finished the series
with a ,3150mark (seven-for-20).

The Baseball Bulletin's August issue named
Paciorek to its All-American first team as an
outfielder. George Foussianes, co-captain of the 1980
Michigan squad which advanced to the College World
Series, received honorable mention honors.

Barber over a new contract, also is facing a fight with
player agent Jerry Argovitz, who wants to
renegotiate linebacker Robert Brazile's contract.
"Robert is the most under-paid player in the NFL,
based on what he has accomplished," said Argovitz,
who negotiated Billy Sims' multi-million dollar
contract with the Detroit Lions. "He has
outperformed his contract."

Brazile, a perennial all-pro selection and Pro Bowl
member, has three years remaining on his current
contract. Although no figures were released, Brazile
reportedly makes between $70,000 and $80,000
Oiler Coach Bum Phillips met for four hours with
Brazile and Argovitz without reaching an agreement.
