compiled from staff, wire and Michigan Athletics info

Saturday May 1 was Barry Larkin Night up in Ann Arbor, Michigan as the University of Michigan baseball program retired the former Wolverine great Barry Larkin’s number 16 jersey. All of the fans in attendance at the Wilpon Baseball Complex (2,263) received a free baseball. However, the Wolverines lost to their arch-rivals Ohio State, 3-2 in 10 Innings.

The former Michigan baseball All-American Barry Larkin (1983-85) became the sixth number to be retired in the program’s storied history.

During his three-year career at Michigan, Larkin led the Wolverines to the College World Series twice (1983-84) and was a two-time All-American selection (1984-85). As a freshman, Larkin had two doubles in a victory over Maine in the first game of the College World Series, leading the Wolverines to a third-place finish. The Wolverines finished seventh during his sophomore campaign as Larkin picked up the first of two consecutive All-America honors. The shortstop hit a career-high .368 during his junior year to earn national recognition for the second straight season.

The Cincinnati, Ohio native still ranks among the top 10 in five different single-season categories at Michigan. He is tied for second in triples (8), fifth in home runs (16) and fourth in total bases (150) while ranking third in runs scored (72) and fifth in runs batted in (66). His three-year career is one of the best for any Wolverine, ranking in the top 10 of five career offensive categories-third in triples (13), fifth in runs scored (172), seventh in slugging percentage (.590), ninth in stolen bases (44) and 10th in total bases (332).

After leaving Michigan, Barry Larkin was drafted fourth overall by his hometown Cincinnati Reds in the 1985 MLB Draft. The popular shortstop spent  a year and a half in the minors before being called up to the Reds, where he played for 19 years, including winning a World Series title in 1990 over the Oakland Athletics. In 1995, he was named the National League MVP while batting .319 and 51 stolen bases.

The three-time Gold Glove Award winner was also a 12-time All-Star and nine-time Silver Slugger honoree. Larkin became the first Major League Baseball shortstop to join the 30-30 club in 1996 when he hit 33 home runs and stole 36 bases.

Mayfair clinging to lead at Quail Hollow championship

compiled from staff, wire and PGA reports

Billy Mayfair (PGA)

Billy Mayfair has been winless on the PGA Tour for almost 12 years and he is on the verge of knocking down that door.

This past Monday, he won a qualifier which was very significant because it allowed him a tee time in the Quail Hollow Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Now, he has a chance to win a real tournament.

Mayfair kept the ball working his way on Saturday and kept the lead at Quail Hollow, shooting a 1-under 71 to take a two-shot lead over Masters champion Phil Mickelson and Carolina favorite Davis Love III.

A victory would be his first since the 1998 Buick Open, and the first time a Monday qualifier won on the PGA Tour since Fred Wadsworth in the 1986 Southern Open.

Mayfair lost his PGA Tour card after the worst season of his career, and a victory would sure take care of that. He only got into Quail Hollow because of a Monday qualifier that he almsot missed. Mayfair was late arriving in Charlotte, and had to race to the course to meet his tee time and then shot a 65, his best score of the year.

For a tournament that no longer has Tiger Woods, who missed the cut, it is not lacking in star power. Two-time major champion Angel Cabrera had a 73 and was in a group at 6-under 210 that included Pebble Beach winner Dustin Johnson (72) and J.J. Henry (71).

The 43-year-old Mayfair is a five-time winner and still is the only player to beat Woods in a playoff on the PGA Tour. That was in the 1998 Nissan Open, and he won the Buick Open later that year. That was his last win.
