Mahler, Rose Named Michigan Captains

Head Coach Rich Maloney announced that SS Leif Mahler and CF Eric Rose will be Michigan's captains in 2007. The players, both seniors, were selected by their teammates.

The Michigan press release also revealed that the Wolverines will open the '07 campaign at the New York Mets facility in Port St. Lucie, Florida. The opposition will be provided by Bethune-Cookman (two games) and Central Florida (a single contest). The rest of the Michigan schedule, not including the Big Ten portions we can piece together be examining other schools schedules, remains a mystery.

Aaron Hepner was also named as a volunteer coach. Hepner was a student assistant at Dayton in 2006.
