Law:
Humble
is good
Editor's note: Allfour of the start-
ing pitchers from last season's Michi-
gan baseball team are now pitching in
the minors; three of them left before
senioreligibility. This is thefourth and
final report on their progress.

DAILY BASEBALL WRITER
Humble beginnings often make for
spectacular careers - at least that's
what former Michigan pitcher Chris
Newton hopes.
Newton, who in this June's ama-
teur draft was selected by the Detroit
Tigers and assigned to the single-A
Jamestown Jammers, hasn't begun his
professional career in the most glamor-
ous role. He's the Jammers' lefthanded
setup man, used exclusively out of the
bullpen.
But for Newton - who started all
oflast spring for the Wolverines-any
way to make it to the big leagues is a
good way.
"It was not aproblem moving to the
bullpen," Newton said. "I've talked to

'M' hockey adds
five star recruits
Touted class expected to fill holes

By Michael Joshua
FOR THE DAILY
Another sport has followed suit in
what seems to be the current trend in
Michigan athletics - getting recruits
in bunches. The Michigan hockey team,
not wanting to be out of fashion, has
recruited its own version of the Fab
Five.
The Wolverines have one of the
most highly touted recruiting classes of
1994.Forwards BillMuckalt,MattHerr
and Robb Gordon join defenseman
Chris Fox and goalie Marty Turco as
next year's freshman class. How good
is this class? Four of the five have
already been drafted by the NHL.
Muckalt, from British Columbia, is
a 6-foot-1, 185-pound right winger.
Michigan coach Red Berenson hopes
to have the right-handed shooter fill the
void left by another high scorer, David
Oliver, who graduated this past year.
The Wolverines snatched Herr, a
native of Lakeville, Conn., from such
powerhouse college hockey teams as
Maine and Harvard. The6-foot-2, 190-

pound Herr is expected to play center
this season.
"Matt is one of those kids who has
the unique package of size, speed and
excellent skill wrapped up in a
centerman,"Berenson said. "With that
package, he brings something that we
haven't had in a long time, and we
expect him to be an impact player."
Gordon, like fellow class member
Muckalt, hails from British Columbia.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound forward led
the Powell River Paperkings of the
BCJHL to the regular season Coastal
Championship. He led the league in
scoring with 69 goals and 89 assists.
Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich.-native
Fox is a 6-foot-1, 185-pounder who
considered Lake Superior State, Mi-
ami(Ohio),HarvardandMichiganState

Becoming a relief pitcher in the minors after starting in college hasn't bothered
Chris Newton much. The Jamestown Jammer's ERA is just over 2.00.
