5. ton for tit aperient tartersintkt we draftd have to fc iedbvCifr d to pass up Shortstop Larkin fires the ball to Ken Hayward at first base. Casey Close is called safe at home plate. He hit .388 with 16 homers in 1985. Kiel and Steve Finken will fill those places in the infield. Outfielders Walters and Jeff Minick also left for the big leagues. Minick signed as a free agent with Detroit and Walters passed up his senior year as the second round choice of Los Angeles. Morris, Eddie Woolwine, Kurt Zimmerman or Chris Gust could win outfield starting roles. Hayward and Wolfe also graduated. Eric Sanders (.429 last season) could step in at catcher and Morris could replace Hayward, who left the Wolverines as the all-time leader in games played (234), at bats (710), runs scored (176), hits (267), RBI (207), batting average (.376), doubles (49), stolen bases (44) and homeruns (33). Freshman pitchers Chris Lutz and Jim Abbott also will join the Michigan squad for ' 86. Matt Siuda (.321 last season) will start at either shortstop or third base. " There ' s an awful lot of people to replace, " said Middaugh. " How we ' ll do depends on the pitching it has to be better. " New people will have to play right away. We ' ll have a good defensive club, but how good depends on how soon we can make decisions (where to play people and develop some depth.

Wolverines probably would have won each game and had a much bet- ter chance of playing in the World Series, he said. The Wolverines set a school record in winning 51 games (with six losses) in the regular season. The team slug- ged its way to records in runs scored (580 the old record was 424), hits (727, to 582), batting average (.362, to .332), and home runs (108 the old record was 51). Individually, Walters broke several team records himself. The senior out-fielder scored 8 1 runs, rapped 9 1 hits, 10 triples and 17 homeruns. He also stole 20 bases and hit for 172 total bases. Larkin set a team record by knocking in 66 runs. Hitting was certainly Michigan ' s forte during the season. Catcher Ran- dy Wolfe led the Big Ten with a .514 average (.371 in all games). Ken Hayward (first base) hit .432, Morris .421 (with 12 homers), Close .388 (16 homers, 58 RBI), Larkin .368 (16 homers, C. J. Beshke .361 and Wal- ters .4 17. Among pitchers, freshman Jim Agemy, with a 10-0 record and a 3.86 ERA, freshman Mike Ignasiak (9-2, 3.43) and Close (6-1, 3.93) were other top Wolverine performers. All the pitchers will return for the 1986 season. They ' re going to make up the nucleus of experienced Michigan players as six starters in the field either graduated or were drafted by big league teams. The double-play combination of Larkin and Beshke will have to be replaced. Larkin was picked by Cin- cinnati in the first round of the Major League draft and decided to pass up his senior year in college. Incoming freshmen Bill St. Peter and Doug Kaiser as well as sophomores Jeff Barry Larkin demonstrates the batting form that earned him 16 homeruns last season. 112 MICHIGAN ENSIAN

Domination Men ' s tennis continues its Big Ten reign Men ' s TENNIS Team record: 13-4 Big Ten record: 10-2 Big Ten Tournament: place first NCAA Tournament: lost in first round Individual records JimSharton: 16-15 Ed Filer: 14-1 3 John Royer: 11-14 Jon Morris: 15-9 BradKoontz: 10-9 Franz Geiger: 1 2-5 John Solik: 6-2 Doubles records Sharton-Filer: 7-5 Royer-Morris: 9-4 Koontz-Tomas Andersson: 8-1 IN 26 OF THE PAST 31 SEA- sons, the Michigan tennis team has won the big ten championship. Under Brian Eisner ' s 16-year reign as head coach, the team has only failed to win the conference title once ( 1984). This has made the Wolverines one of the most dominating teams in the Big Ten in any sport at any time. " When you have the record that we have you are the measure of ex- cellence in that sport, " said Eisner. " If you perform at a certain level, other teams have to pick their pro- grams up to that level. " Michigan won the Big Ten title last season by defeating Ohio State, Il- linois and Minnesota in the con- ference tournament last May. In the first round of the 16-team NCAA Hugh Kwok sets up to hit a backhand. 114 MICHIGAN ENSIAN
