12 Tuesday, March 7,1989 The Salina Journal Erickson hopes to maintain winning tradition at Miami Erickson Walsh may stay for senior year CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — New University of Miami football coach Dennis Erickson, who turned around programs at Idaho and Washington State, said Monday he wants to avoid doing the same thing with the Hurricanes. "This is a program where you maintain, and you don't turn it around," Erickson said shortly after his arrival in Miami. "We'd better not lose over two' games," he joked. "I get just as much of an ulcer when we're 6-5 as when we're 9-3. I know what the expectations are." Erickson, coach at Washington State the past two seasons, accepted the Miami job Sunday. He received good news right away: quarterback Steve Walsh, who earlier said he would turn pro unless top Miami assistant Gary Stevens was named head coach, said he might stay with the Hurricanes for one more season. Erickson might need Walsh to match the standards set by Jimmy Johnson, who departed for the Dallas Cowboys after leading Miami to a 342 record the past three years. "Jimmy Johnson has done a great job, obviously," Erickson said. "We've got to keep that going. That's our goal." More specifically, Erickson said, the team's goal this fall will be a national championship. Miami has won two in the past six years. Athletic director Sam Jankovich chose Erickson even though Stevens was the popular choice for the job Scoreboard among the players and fans. "Transition is very difficult," said Erickson, who has a 50-31-1 career record in seven years at three schools. "You've got to earn respect from the community and the players. That doesn't happen overnight. "All we can do is coach as well as we can coach and do the same things as we've been doing for the past 20 years, and hope we can earn respect." Walsh said he might give Erickson a chance. "What I said about leaving might have been a little emotional," Walsh said. "It was a heartfelt feeling for Coach Stevens, and at the time I didn't know who they were going to bring in. But Coach Erickson has done some good things. I don't want to close out any of my options. My mind is still open." Erickson said he visited briefly with Walsh on Monday, and another meeting was planned today. The new coach said there were good reasons for Walsh to return. "Steve's going to throw the football and gain a lot of yards throwing the football in our system," Erickson said. "It's going to be a good year for him. Plus, I believe going out a year early can cost you money." While introducing Erickson at the news conference, Jankovich said he rejected Stevens because he wanted someone with experience as a head coach. Jankovich called the 41-year- old Erickson "a proven head football coach and a very talented human being." Stevens on Monday was named quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator of the Miami Dolphins, which means three holdovers from Johnson's Hurricanes staff remain. Erickson plans to interview them today; he brought six assistants from Washington State. Royals groom major league players at school in Dominican Republic ByDICKKAEGEL Kansas City Star and Times BASEBALL CITY, Fla. — The presence of pitchers Aguedo Vasquez and Hector Wagner on the Kansas City spring roster is significant. They are products of the Royals' baseball school in the Dominican Republic. Vasquez, 22, and Wagner, 20, are almost certain to be in the minor leagues this season. But if they reach the majors, their way will have been eased by a stay at the school in Salcedo. "It's the Latin American answer to our old Baseball Academy program," general manager John Schuerholz said, referring to the school the Royals once had inSarasota.Fla. Established in 1985, the Dominican school includes a stadium, dormitory for 30 players and staff, kitchen and dining room and a classroom in which English is taught. The Dominican — which has produced such players as Juan Marichal, the Alou brothers, Joaquin Andujar, Cesar Cedeno, Pedro Guerrero, George Bell, Alfredo Griffin, Juan Samuel and Tony Fernandez — is laden with promising youngsters. "It reminds me of the Depression in the United States when kids played ball from morning to night," said Art Stewart, the Royals' director of scouting. "There's nothing else to do. You see them playing over there with sticks and taped-up balls everywhere, in rice fields and on river banks. Baseball is a way out for them, a great opportunity, and I think they all grow up with that in mind.'' The Kansas City school is off the beaten path. "There's no running water," Stewart said. "The water wagon comes in once a week — it costs $15 a load—so we can operate the showers.'' But school supervisor Luis Silverio sees that the players eat well, are schooled in baseball fundamentals and learn enough English to survive in the United States. The top prospects from tryout camps and sandlot games are invited to the school, which runs from mid- October to mid-February. Players subsequently signed by the Royals play in a summer league in the Dominican. The Royals compete with teams operated by the Milwaukee Brewers, Detroit Tigers and Baltimore Orioles. Stewart credited the Pittsburgh Pirates with blaz- ing the trail in the talent hunt in Latin countries. Roberto Clemente was a native of Puerto Rico. The Toronto Blue Jays and the Los Angeles Dodgers, who also have schools in the Dominican, have a strong Latin base. "Four and a half years ago, we had one scout in the Dominican Republic and one scout in Puerto Rico, and that was the extent of our program in Latin America," Stewart said. "Now we have five scouts in the Dominican and one each in Panama, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and Horace Clarke, the old Yankee second baseman, in the Virgin Islands." Forty Latins are among the 200 players in the Royals' organization. On the major-league roster, in addition to Vasquez and Wagner, are first baseman Luis de los Santos from the Dominican and pitcher Luis Aquino from Puerto Rico. Both pitcher Jose DeJesus and catcher Rey Palacios were born in Brooklyn, but DeJesus grew up in Puerto Rico and Palacios plays winter ball there, his parents' homeland. Pitcher Israel Sanchez was born in Cuba but came to the United States as a child. The Royals do not have a Latin coach on their major-league staff, but Frank Funk and John Mayberry speak Spanish. Latin American players have been exempt from the major-league draft, though Puerto Rican players will be eligible for the first time this year. That has made for an open market — and an inexpensive one — for major-league clubs. Stewart said clubs normally sign Latin players for $1,500 to $4,000. Players drafted in the first round command bonuses of $100,000 to $235,000. Clubs can sign a player at 16 if he turns 17 during his first professional season. The Royals have 16-year-old Venezuelan shortstop Juan Indriago coming to camp. Indriago was MVP in the International Games at Aruba. Hunting for talent in Latin countries is "true scouting, really beating the bushes," Stewart said. He recalled a foray by Herb Raybourn in search of shortstop Chris Garibaldo. "There was fighting in Panama, and they stopped him and wouldn't let him drive any farther — they said the road was in a danger zone," Stewart said. "So he went into this kid's town, about four or five miles away, on horseback. And he came out with a signed contract." Astros' 4-run 9th beats Kansas City KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — With Kansas City playing two outfielders and five infielders, Karl Allaire's fly ball to center drove home the winning run as the Houston Astros edged the Royals 5-4 Monday for their first exhibition victory. Allaire's single came with nobody out and capped Houston's four-run ninth inning. The Astros are now 1-3 and the Royals are 3-1. Kansas City reliever Ken Adams came on in the ninth to hold a 4-1 lead, but walked Karl Rhodes, Craig Reynolds and Greg Gross to load the bases. Hector Wagner, 0-1, then gave up a two-run single to Thad Bosley and Craig Biggio followed with an opposite field double to drive in pinch-runner Casey Candaele with the tying run. Royals manager John Wathan decided to do without a left fielder and go with five infielders. But Allaire drove in the go-ahead run with a fly ball to straight-away center that neither center fielder Nick Capra, playing out of position, nor right fielder Gary Thurman could chase down. The Astros' comeback spoiled the combined pitching performances of starter Floyd Bannister, Tom Gordan and Steve Fair, who gave up only three hits over the first eight innings. Kansas City scored single runs in the second and fourth innings and expanded its lead to 4-1 in the top of the ninth when Mike McFarlane hit a bloop single off Smith and Rey Palacios followed with a home run over the left-center field fence.
