High Schools Westwood's Doss signs with Cubs By SCOTT ROSENBERG Palm Beach Post Staff Writer FORT PIERCE - Jason Doss graduates from high school Wednesday night. Thursday afternoon, he begins his career as a professional baseball player. Doss, who set every major season and career pitching record at Fort Pierce Westwood, was drafted by the Chicago Cubs last Thursday in the 23rd round. Doss, 17, signed a minor league contract Friday, and will leave Thursday for Mesa, Ariz., site of the Cubs' extended spring training camp for rookies. His parents said he will be transferred June 17 to Withelville, Tenn., home of one of the Cubs' Class A teams. Doss passed on a number of scholarship offers, including those from two local community colleges and the University of Miami. "When they called me and told me they drafted me, I almost hit the ceiling," said Doss, who was 16-2 with a 1.35 ERA for the Panthers, runners-up for the Class AAA state championship this year. "I was so excited. This is what I've always wanted to do." When he was 9, Doss asked his parents what he'd have to do to someday play professional baseball. They told him to work hard. This season, he did. He pitched 129 innings, striking out 217 batters, and was the winning pitcher in all four of Westwood's postseason victories. In the last two seasons, Doss struck out 317 batters. "He's definitely the most dominant player at his position in school history," said Westwood coach Charles Johnson Sr. "I feel he has a very good chance to make the majors. It's a long road about five or six years in the minors but he just needs to have a positive approach. "You'd still like the game to be fun for him, but it's a job now. Now, he has his life cut out for him." Doss said he had no preference as to which team drafted him, but he's glad it was a National League team. "Now," he said, "I'll still be able to get up to bat." "I'm a little nervous, but very excited," said Doss, a 5-foot-ll, 165-pound right-hander. By TOM D'ANGELO Palm Beach Post Staff Writer OMAHA, Neb. - When Joe Arnold accepted the position as head baseball coach at the University of Florida, he looked at programs he'd most like to emulate. TV: ESPN, 5:10 p.m. Those that came to mind were Miami, Oklahoma State and USC. f "f-Jjr-VIBut the one that Arnold knew more about, and considered the model program, was his alma mater, Arizona State. "I have tremendous respect Arnold for that pro gram," Arnold said. "Looking back on the years, the people they have in professional baseball, their success, there's an aura there." Arnold, 40, admits he always has followed the Sun Devils program. The one game he will be most interested in will be played tonight at Area trio experienced in big games By TOM D'ANGELO Palm Beach Post Staff Writer OMAHA, Neb. - Playing in a world series is nothing new for Florida's Brian Reimsnyder or Miami's Joe Grahe and Chris Hirsch. When Jensen Beach Post 12 won the 1986 American Legion World Series, Reimsnyder, Grahe and Hirsch played major roles. Two years later, they are back at a national championship tournament on a much larger scale. "I haven't let any of the pressure get to me," said Reimsnyder, who hit a key two-run homer in Florida's 6-5 victory over California Sunday. "Maybe that's because I've been in this type of situation before." Reimsnyder, who is from Stuart and played at South Fork High School and Indian River Community College, lead the Gators with 15 home runs. Grahe, of Lake Park, played at Palm Beach Gardens and Palm Beach Junior College. He leads the Hurricanes with 13 victories, but lost his fifth game of the season to Cal State-Fullerton in Miami's series opener. Hirsch is from Palm Beach Gardens. He hit .208 in limited play during the season. The Stanford Cardinal have proven athletics and academics can successfully co-exist. Ten members of the defending national champions will be taking finals today at the Marriott Hotel. Paul Carey, the MVP of last year's CWS, ', I It f i - - ? Noriega scores winning run for Hurricanes HURRICANESfrom 1C Third-seeded Miami (52-13-1), which lost its series opener 9-3 to Cal State-Fullerton, will play tonight at 8:10 against the loser of Monday's late game between Stanford and Cal State-Fullerton. Junior right-hander Will Vespe will start for the Hurricanes. Miami scored four runs in the 12th inning, including three off losing pitcher John Salles. Salles entered the tournament with a 15-0 record, and exited with his only two losses of the season, to Stanford and Miami. Miami loaded the bases before a wild pitch allowed Rey Noriega to score the winning run. With two outs, Frank Dominguez singled in . two runs and Vespe's single scored one. "The past two games we haven't been hitting the way we should," Dominguez said. "This is a big lift going into the next game." Williams thrilled with Grand Prix opportunity WILLIAMSfrom 1C a breath of fresh air." Williams said the position "is exactly what I was looking for" since resigning as vice president of Firebird International Raceway at Chandler, Ariz., three months ago. "I am excited to be here," Williams said. "I was just about to accept a position at another facility when I heard from Phil. I came down here last week and met with him and the investors and knew this is the kind of project I had been looking for." The hiring of Williams prevents Lloyd Frink from returning to the position should he be acquitted of drug smuggling conspiracy charges in September. Frink founded the event in 1985 and acted as promoter from the first race in June of 1986 until his arrest in November of 1987. Frink acted as a "paid consultant" for the 3rd Annual Grand Prix in April. Frink was responsible for the layout and construction of the new 1.62-mile course at the South Flori 5:10 at Rosenblatt Stadium. Arnold and his Gators will face the Sun Devils in the College World Series. The loser will be eliminated. "My reaction will be the same as any game ... to win the ballgame," Arnold said. "When you look across the field it's just another team. Arizona State is another step toward our goal." Arnold played at Lake Worth High School and two years at Miami Dade Junior College, where he compiled a 29-1 pitching record. He was a junior when he pitched for Arizona State in 1968. He was 11-1 with a 0.68 ERA. Arizona State won the national title the year before and the year after Arnold played there. Then-ASU coach Bobby Winkles, now a coach for the Montreal Expos, said the Sun Devils couldn't make it to the 1968 CWS with one arm. He was speaking of Arnold's. In the last conference series of the season, Arnold beat Arizona 2-0 on Friday, pitched seven innings of relief in a 15-inning game Saturday afternoon, and warmed up but did not pitch Saturday night.

Entering Monday night's game against Cal State-Fullerton, Stanford had won nine of its last 10 games. Coach Mark Marquess said finals week may have been beneficial to his team. Miami was held hitless from the third through 11th innings by Fresno starter Rich Crane, who retired 26-of-27 batters after Jose Truji-llo's single to lead off the third. All-America Mike Fiore broke the streak with a two-out double in the 11th. By then, Crane had thrown 152 pitches and Bennett opted for Salles, who had started 23 of his 24 games. Crane allowed seven hits and had seven strikeouts. "That's about average for what I throw in a nine-inning game," Crane said. "I was getting a little tired." "He was really pitching," Dominguez said. "Some guys try to throw the fastball by you. He was very selective." An error by Fresno State third baseman Mike Burton allowed Do-minquez to reach, then Vespe, who had three hits and three RBI, singled in Fiore. Fresno extended its season by an inning with a run in the bottom of da Fairgrounds. "Lloyd has finished his consulting contract and we are grateful and we wish him well," O'Connell said. Reached at his home Monday, Frink refused comment on the matter. Williams, a former NHRA world champion drag racer who retired in 1964, has 24 years of experience in auto sports promotions. Among his accomplishments: the construction of New York National Speedway on Long Island and construction of the Bakersfield (Calif.) Drag Strip. In 1977, he joined the Sears Point Raceway staff and purchased the facility four years later. From 1981-86, the track became one of the finest on the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) circuit. George Silbermann, IMSA's vice president of operations, said of Williams: "He's certainly a capable individual. Jack will do a very good job there." Upon leaving Sears Point, Wil Arnold left after one semester in Tempe, signing a contract with the Houston Astros. He was drafted and played as an infielder. "If I had to do it all over again, I would have stayed for my senior year," said Arnold, who at 5-feet-9 wasn't considered a pitching prospect. "I would have pitched on a staff with Larry Gura and Lerrin LaGrow and pitched in the World Series. I would have been in the thick of that. I would have had a better chance of pitching professionally." Arnold was married and had a child at the time. Three years later he returned to ASU as a graduate assistant under Winkles. He credits that one season for allowing him to make a career of coaching. "With the credentials you had as an assistant at Arizona State, it was certainly a feather in your cap," he said. The year after Arnold left, Arizona State hired current coach Jim Brock. Arnold had returned to Miami Dade as an assistant.

"They weren't thinking about baseball as much." Wichita State has won six con the 11th courtesy of Steve Pearse's sacrifice fly. Majer, though not overpowering, kept the dangerous Fresno bats relatively quiet. Except for a first-inning home run by All-America first baseman Lance Shebelut and a fifth-inning homer by Steve Von-dran, the Bulldogs hardest hit balls were loud fouls. Shebelut's homer, his 32nd of the year, scored Tom Goodwin and tied the score 2-2. Shebelut is second in the nation to BYU's Mike Willes, who hit 35 home runs. Fresno hit 23 home runs in eight postseason games, and 120 on the season. Vespe's first hit and a wild pitch that allowed Jorge Robles to score, gave Miami it's brief 2-0 lead in the first. The Hurricanes took the lead in the second on a sacrifice fly by Rob Word. Word's bunt single in the 12th inning was his second postseason hit in 22 at bats. The it was up to Knowles to keep Miami in the game during its mid- liams became vice president of Firebird International Raceway. He resigned three months ago. He said Palm Beach County has all the ingredients to stage and support "a successful event." "Obviously, this race needs to get going in the proper direction," he said. "It seems the community is behind this event and that's exciting. If you go to Albuquerque or somewhere, you have a three- to five-year education period. Here, people are familiar with racing." Williams said he was impressed with the course at the fairgrounds. "I expected to see something much smaller," he said. "I was happy to see it had two straightaways and it was bigger than I had pictured. The entrance to the pit area needs some changes but other than that ... "I think the move to the fairgrounds was a positive move." Williams, currently trying to sell corporate sponsorship, said his immediate goal is to acquire a title sponsor for the event. He also said the Grand Prix will have a full- that Joe had a real talent," Brock said. "He's really one of the bright young coaches."
