It's back-to-school time for Tigers' Tony Clark Deer's sharp single to left scored a pair in the third, and signaled the end for Robinson. Gibson got Brock to pop up and end the inning. Gibson gave up four hits and one run over four innings, and was in position to earn his fourth victory until Sheffield cleared the fence in the ninth. Deer's 21st homer of the season, into the upper deck bleachers in right-center, was the only damage done against Gibson. TONY CLARK, from Page 1C "It was interesting to say the least," Clark said. "I think next year I will be more prepared when I get out here. This was enough to get my feet wet." Clark, 17, likely was hindered by a short high school season and reporting late after lengthy contract negotiations. "Tony is such a perfectionist," his father, Arthur Clark, said. "He was feeling bad that his batting average is low, but I reminded him that he has not played much baseball this year and the other players have been there since June. "He knows he can hit, and when you are a power hitter you have to just keep hitting the ball hard. He wants to be a .300 hitter with 1,000 home runs." In the last week, Clark raised his average 37 points and hit his only homer. "I'm batting around .300 the last week-and-a-half and feeling much more comfortable," Clark said. "Things were just starting to fall into place, and now I have to leave. Basically, I will try to use this last week as a confidence-builder for next season." Clark said he encountered little trouble in the area he feared most how he would be treated after signing a big contract. "I was not really worried about being on the road and away from my family," he said. "The big thing was how I would get along with the other players because of the terms of my contract. But they have been great to me, which has made the transition very easy." His roommates have been Brian DuBose (Detroit St. Mary of Redford), Danny Cruz, Chris Hall and Ron Maietta. Clark's transition to basketball will not be as easy after a month away from the court. He kept a basketball with him and dribbled in his room when he could, but was not allowed to play. After reaching Arizona, he will try to keep his arm and swing in shape by working out with the baseball Wildcats. "I was disappointed with this season simply because I know what I can do and I was unable to do it," Clark said. "I got down on myself, but that is a given. I think it has a lot to say about character if you can come back from adversity." Joe McDonald, Tigers vice president of player procurement and development, said he remains optimistic about Clark's future in baseball, despite his performance at Bristol. "When he came, he had not played for two months," McDonald said. "He did show us everything we wanted to see in batting practice a good swing and power but in game competition, he was playing catch-up. We would have liked to see him put up better numbers. "When he reports next year, things will be better. He'll be coming in May when the semester is over.

If we felt he was going to be a basketball player we would not have signed him." Clark thinks it's too early to evaluate his future. "If I continue to play the way I am, there will be no future," he said. "But, with an earlier start and full season next year, I will improve." Tony McAndrews, an assistant basketball coach at Arizona, says Clark will make an immediate impact as a fresh,-man in that sport. " Clark, an honor student in high school, reports Monday for freshman orientation. "He's a great kid," McAndrews said. "I think the Tigers and the Wildcats both got lucky." - mm 9 k a -ft r mm we.
