mew I C2 SUNDAY, AUGUST 27, 1995 LOS ANGELES TIMES I n in, T T i MORNING BRIEFING He Still Sees the Enemy Up on the Hill Richie Ashburn, recently inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, told Paul Meyer of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he still has a grudge against pitchers. ... "After 15 years of facing them, :you don't really get over them," he said. "They're devious. They're the only players in the game allowed to cheat. They throw illegal pitches, and they sneak foreign substances on the ball. They can inflict pain whenever they wish. ' "And they're the only ones on the diamond who have high 'ground. That's symbolic. You know what they tell you in war, 'Take the high ground first.' " Trivia time: who is the only active NFL player to have played in the Oakland Coliseum in a regular-season game? Who's on first? Phil mzzuto, 77, who recently retired as New York Yankee broadcaster, is remembered for some of his rambling, off-the-wall comments. A sampling: "And that ball is out of here. No, it's not. Yes, it is. No, it's not. What happened?" "A high fly and while it's in the air, happy birthday to Daphne Lapizana. She turns 18 today." Driving is OK tOO: Ivan Lendl had to give up tennis because of chronic back problems. However, he's still an avid golfer. Golf isn't easy on the back, but Lendl told Tennis magazine, "My problem wasn't turning, my problem was running. I don't have to run here." It had tO happen: Producer Larry Thompson, formerly of New World Pictures, has been working with screenwriter Phil Rosenberg on a biography of Mickey Mantle. Leading candidates to play Mantle are actors Jason Priestly, Luke Perry and Matthew Perry. WhOOpee! Bob Kravitz of the Rocky Mountain News on the NCAA sanctions imposed on Alabama: "I think it's safe to assume that folks at Auburn handled news of Alabama's probation with grace, style and equanimity. Right after the weeklong block party ended." The high road: Ivan Maisel in the Sporting News: "Last year, the cover of the NCAA Football Media Guide featured University of North Alabama's Demetrea Shelton, subsequently ruled aca demically ineligible. "The NCAA took no chances this season. The cover boy is Byron (Whizzer) White, the 1937 Colorado Ail-American running back now retired from the U.S. Supreme Court." Cruel: Tom Weir of USA Today writes that if the Nevada Boxing commission really wants to punish Vinny Vecchione for jumping into the ring to stop the Mike Tyson fight "they could make him listen to Don King tapes." Trivia answer: Vince Evans, as quarterback for the Chicago Bears. QllOtebOOk: Cornerback Terrell Buckley, who was traded by Green Bay to Miami, on his former team: "I don't have nothing bad to say about Green Bay. I don't have anything positive to say either." MAL FLORENCE NEWSWIRE Even Sideways, Labonte Wins at Bristol From Staff and Wire Reports Terry Labonte, trying to hold off hard-charging Dale Earnhardt in heavy traffic, won the rain-delayed Goody's 500 on Saturday night while sliding sideways across the finish line at Bristol International Raceway in Tennessee. Earnhardt, who had several other run-ins during the long night, slammed into the rear of Labonte's car, sending the leader sliding at the end of Lap 500. "Dale caught me and gave me a little shot in the back," Labonte said. "I stayed on the gas and just beat him across the line." J?arnhardt, who pitted during the last caution period on Lap 390, used his fresh tires to charge from ninth on Lap 429 to second on Lap 487. He nearly caught Labonte, who was slowed on the final lap by several lapped cars. The start of the 500-lap race on Bristol's 0.533-mile concrete oval was delayed 89 minutes because of .rain, and the race was further ' slowed by a race-record 15 caution flags for 105 laps. Xhe winner averaged 81.979 m.p.h. Ferrari's Gerhard Berger had the LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES Taiwan Too Much for Spring, 17-3 From Associated Press ' WILLI AMSPORT, Pa.-Three years after officials took the Little League World Series title away from the Philippines for using ineligible players, the Far East is dominant again. Taiwan won its 16th Little League championship Saturday .with a 17-3 victory over Spring, -Tex., in the second-most lopsided final ever. The team from Tainan, a city of about 200,000, may have gone on to surpass the record set by another Taiwan club in 1987 with a 21-1 victory over Irvine, but Saturday's , game was called after four innings because Little League introduced a lOnrun mercy rule this season. "All you can really say is 'Wow!' " said Manager Don Turley of Spring, a suburb of Houston. , "That is the most awesome Little League team in the world, bar none." "Chih Hsiang Lin threw a four-hitter and had two homers, including his sixth of the series to break a 24ryear-old record. ri Shortstop Chia Ming Cheng hit Wardell Starling's third pitch over the left-field fence to lead off and Lin hit a two-run homer later in the first to make the score 3-0. I think I came out flat and struggled," said Starling, who was in the infirmary with a 100-degree temperature Friday. "We were the best in the United States, what more could you ask for?" Starling got a small ounce of revenge in the fourth inning during Spring's only rally, when he hit a two-run, 250-foot home run to center. . Taiwan's last title came in 1991, the year before the Philippines forfeited. After that. Little League began more strictly enforcing rules regarding over-age players and restricting the size of the pool of, players that a team could be chosen from. Taiwan and three other countries were banned in 1993 and an uncharacteristically sloppy Taiwan team went 1-2 in the Series last year. fastest qualifying lap at the Belgian Grand Prix at 137.177 m.p.h. at Spa-Francorchamps. Jurisprudence Chris Phillips, 46, a vice president with the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning was shot in a confrontation with two men as they were stopped at a traffic light in Tampa, Fla., he said. Phillips drove to Tampa General Hospital, where he underwent surgery to remove a bullet from his lower left arm. He is in good condition. Houston Oiler offensive tackle Stan Thomas said a woman pointed a gun at his head Thursday night, wanting his $100,000 Mercedes and almost everything in it. Four hours later, the car was found burning a few miles away. The auto's wheels and tires were gone, as were CDs, golf clubs and two custom suits from the interior and trunk. Thomas said the woman also took his wallet, which contained about $1,200. Miami Dolphin reserve running back Irving Spikes was arrested at his home in Pembroke Pines, Fla., on battery charges after his wife said he tried to choke her. Miscellany The Coast Guard has called off its search for Jim Bertken, a sports-writer for the Los Angeles Daily News who has been missing since early Friday morning while on a fishing expedition. Bertken, 36, was apparently swept overboard while on an overnight charter trip off the California coast near San Luis Obispo.
