FH..H»rcll».im INDfcPtNObN I (AM) UAM_(PM)-C -3 By KEN PIVERNETZ Slalf Writer If Thursday's m a r k s wore any indication, the 330 low hurdles promises to be one' ol (he Moore League's glamor running events in track this spring. On a day when Wilson nipped « illikan, 60-58, and Poly and Jordan ran away with easy wins, the atten- tion getters were Kevin Gibson, Clarence Hopper and Elbcrt Curry. VI illikan's Gibson ran the lows in a fast early- reason 38.3, Hopper of Jordan was timed in 38.4 and Curry of Poly 30.1.

Wilson had the meet won before Ihe mite relay, but was not without a few anxious moments at the outset.

Williams said that Dave Chalk will continue to play third, with the newly-acquired Bill Melton "working out a bit at third, a bil at first, and a lot in the batting cage." Melton, acquired from Ihe Chicago While Sox, is a third baseman, bul is expected lo be used prim a r i l y as the Angels' designated hitter. T h i r t y rosier players were on hand for the opening workout, with pitchers Nolan R y a n a n d Dick Drago and catcher Ellie Rodriguez a m o n g those not yet in camp. Pitcher Gary Ross, acquired from the Padres over the winter, was the A n g e l s ' f i r s t casualty. Uoss was hit on the forearm by a line drive and taken for X-rays, bul they p r o v e d negative and a club spokesman said he shouldn't have to miss any drills.
