SPORTS DIGEST Jordan, Malone, three newcomers on All-NBA By The Associated Press NEW YORK — Michael Jordan and Karl Maione, picked so frequently for the All-NBA team that they're almost automatics, made it again Wednesday and were joined by three first-time choices. Rookie of the Year Tim Duncan of San Antonio, Shaquille O'Neal of Los Angeles and Gary Payton of Seattle joined Chicago's Jordan and Utah's Maione, who were unanimous choices. Jordan, who won his fifth MVP award this week, and Malone, the runner-up for that award, each received the maximum 580 points with the maximum 116 first-team ballots from a panel of writers and broadcasters across the United States and Canada. Each was picked on the first team for the 10th time. Baseball COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — A Beanie Baby is headed to the Baseball Hall of Fame to join David Wells' hat as mementos of the left-hander's perfect game. Fans who attended Sunday's game between the New York Yankees and Minnesota Twins received the popular stuffed toy. The promotion attracted 49,820 to Yankee Stadium, a near-capacity crowd. The fans then witnessed the masterpiece by Wells, who became the 13th pitcher in modern major league history, and the second Yankee, to throw a perfect game. The hat, doll and a ticket stub from the May 17 game will be placed in the hall's 1998 highlights exhibit. LOS ANGELES — Mike Piazza said thanks and goodbye to fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday in a rather expensive way. Piazza, the popular slugger traded to the Florida Marlins last Friday, took out an advertisement on page 5 of the Los Angeles Times sports section, taking up a quarter of the page. A display advertisement of that size runs $18,898. The ad read as follows: "An Open Letter to Dodger Fans — It's never easy to say goodbye. But from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you for the overwhelming support you have shown during my years in Los Angeles. I leave with nothing but great memories and deep appreciation. Sincerely, Mike Piazza." PHILADELPHIA — The agent for holdout draft choice J.D. Drew and the Philadelphia Phillies, who hold Drew's rights until Tuesday, have agreed to conduct contract talks. The development came one day after an arbitrator refused to make Drew, the second overall pick in last year's draft, a free agent. Basketball OAKLAND, Calif. — Latrell SpreweU sued the NBA and the Golden State Warriors for lost wages and damages stemming from his suspension for his December attack on coach P.J. Carlesimo. The suit, filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court, alleges the star guard was punished twice — by both the team and the league — for the same offense and that the suspension kept him from working and "halted any hopes for a trade to another team." On Monday, the NBA said Sprewell's attorneys had told the league that they planned to file a lawsuit "based upon a claim that Dean Feerick's arbitration award, which upheld a suspension of 68 games, somehow violated Sprewell's rights, the antitrust laws and the labor laws." The statement, from NBA chief legal officer Jeffrey Mishkin, went on to say: "Any such claim would be totally absurd." Horse racing LEXINGTON, Ky. — Cape Town fractured his left front leg in the Preakness and is being retired to stud. "We're assuming it happened during the race," said Ric Waldman, syndicate manager for William T. Young's Overbrook Farm, where the colt was bred and where he will stand. "He went into the race sound, and he came out of it unsound." Cape Town, trained by D. Wayne Lukas, was fifth in the Kentucky Derby on May 2. In the Preakness on Saturday, the colt threw his left front shoe and finished ninth in the 10-horse field. General KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The National Federation of State High School Associations announced Wednesday that it will leave Kansas City and move to Indianapolis to remain close to the NCAA, which is also relocating there. The federation has a staff of about 40 and has been in Kansas City since 1979. By relocating to Indianapolis the federation "can continue our ever-increasing relationship with the NCAA," executive director Bob Kanaby said. Kanaby confirmed to the Associated Press on Tuesday that federation employees were told of the move, the day before the formal announcement. The NCAA, headquartered in the Kansas City area since 1951, sold its headquarters to Indianapolis last May and expects to occupy its new building by August 1999. Soccer PORTLAND, Ore. — David Regis was sworn in as a U.S. citizen on Wednesday, and Tab Ramos was officially selected for the American World Cup team. Regis, a Martinique-born French citizen with an American wife, passed his citizenship exam in Los Angeles, answering all 10 oral questions correctly. The 29-year-old defender, expected to play in Sunday's exhibition game against Kuwait, scored five goals this season for Karlsruher SC in Germany's Bundesliga. Regis is expected to be chosen by coach Steve Sampson for the final spot on the United States' 22-man World Cup roster.
