Michigan Football is back for it's 131st season...
The Wolverines, my favorite college football team since 1976 begin the season today @ 3:30 vs. the Connecticut Huskies, hoping to get back to the winning tradition of Michigan Football.
Michigan has also been a great baseball program over the years, and so I thought I'd give a shout-out to the Wolverine baseball players in the big leagues.
There are four Wolverines in MLB this year, including Jake Scott of the Baltimore Orioles, Chris Getz of the KC Royals, J.J. Putz of the Chicago White Sox, and ex-Wolverine QB Clayton Richard of the San Diego Padres.
Richard is having a fine season this year with the Padres, compiling a 12-6 record this year, with a 3.50 ERA so far in 2010.
This card is Richards 2005 Bowman RC.
Clayton was a 8th round draft pick by the ChiSox in 2005. He has a career record of 23-16, with a ERA of 4.21.
So, here's to the Wolverines in pro baseball, and here's to the Meeeechigan Men running through the tunnel at 'The Big House" today...Go Blue!
