Exactly how much less remains to be seen. 'The players are satisfied that we're going to take a look at all this, and then we'll see in the next few weeks at what we can do and how soon," Awtrey said.

No specifics were aired not publicly, anyway but you can bet a buyout is already in the works. The players, if they're smart, will go ahead and send off the checks to the charity they support, a nice gesture to be sure, but a nice tax write-off as well. Maybe bragging rights was too poor a prize to keep fat-cat golfers interested even this long. We'll soon know. Jim Lilke is a sports columnist for The Associated Press.

Write to him at jlitkeap.org. whatever we see fit," Woods said. "Personally, I would donate all of it to charity. But I think it's up to the other person's discretion what they would do with it." There is some irony in all this grumbling. For years now, the Ryder Cup has been passing itself off as a high-minded competition pitting our millionaires against theirs.

But what Tiger and the rest of play-for-pay crowd should know is that in its humble origins nearly 80 years ago, it was just another bald-faced scheme to get Americans more jobs. At the turn of the century, as country clubs sprang up across the United States, status-conscious members insisted on hir- ing pros from the old country. In 1921, a competition of was begun to change the perception our homegrown pros were second-rate. So uneasy were most Americans about their chances that one of the competition's biggest backers, railroad baron Walter Ross, refused at the last minute to spring for a trophy. It turns out his fears were well justified.

The British prevailed 9-3, then thumped the Americans even more handily five years later. The whole thing might have died there except that Samuel Ryder, an English seed merchant who came to the game late and brought with him a convert's zeal, offered a gold trophy to the winner. It was a decision Ryder would regret. The Americans won the first official Cup match, W2-2V2, in 1927, then won 23 of the subsequent 32 meetings. But since 1979, when the original Great Britain-Ireland side was expanded to include players from the Continent, Europe has walked away with the Cup five of seven times, including the last match two years ago.

And now, just as their coun A friend came up with a novel idea to get America's reluctant Ryder Cup heroes off the hook. Just win, babies. It's that simple. David Duval, Tiger Woods and Mark O'Meara could get the ball rolling by helping the U.S. team crush Europe in late September, then do it again in the 2001 and 2003 matches.

A modest win streak should be enough to convince their countrymen to turn their patriotic fervor toward some other pricey little piece of hardware we don't currently own, like the America's Cup. Granted, it would involve sacrifice. It might mean hiring somebody else to wind the Rolex watches and order off the menu to free up more practice time. A few guys might even have to give up Nintendo. But judging by the heat they brought on themselves with mumbled threats of a boycott, five years of honest laboring (in 3m PetGB 69 43 .616 64 51 .557 6tt 62J1J497VL 50 63 .442 47 66 .416 22Ji New York Toronto.

Baseball Hall of Famer Jim "Catfish" Hunter was unconscious and breathing with the aid of a ventilator in a neuro-intensive care unit after injuring his head in a fall, a hospital spokeswoman said. Hunter, 53, who has amyothropic lateral sclerosis an irreversible deterioration of the muscles commonly called Lou Gehrig's disease fell Sunday on cement steps outside his home in Hertford, a friend said Tuesday.

His condition was downgraded to critical from serious Monday, when he was awake, hospital spokesman Doug Boyd said. Hunter was taken to a hospital in Edenton and transferred early Monday to Pitt County Memorial Hospital, which serves the East Carolina University medical school. He remained in critical condition early today, said Betty Bailey, the hospital's nursing patient care coordinator. Hunter's family was at the hospital with their minister much of Tuesday, Boyd said. Bailey said she did not know if family members were spending the night at the hospital.

"The family is very private right now," Boyd said. Tommy Harrell, who lives next door to the Hunters, spent much of Tuesday on the phone with several of Hunter's former teammates. Harrell wasn't optimistic. "He's had some bad knocks before, but this is the he said. "The only thing people can do right now is pray for him." But Harrell said Hunter's wife, Helen, is handling the latest setback well.

"She's got a strength that a whole lot of people don't have." "We just need everybody to keep him in your prayers," Helen Hunter said Tuesday. "We need everybody's prayers right now, and we need them strong." Childhood friend Charles Woodard said Hunter fell around 5:30 p.m. Sunday. "He was outside seeing off a friend and was going back up the steps to his house when his feet got tangled," said Woodard, who owns Woodard's Pharmacy in Hertford. "He just fell backward and hit his head." Hunter was diagnosed 1 1 months ago with ALS, a neurological disease that interferes with the signals the brain sends to the muscles.

Over time, the muscles degenerate. The cause is unknown; there is no cure. Hunter pitched for 15 years, winning 224 games, including a perfect game. He received five World Series rings while playing for the Kansas City and Oakland Athletics and the New York Yankees. Boyd said Hunter hasn't undergone surgery since he was admitted to the hospital.

However, his head injuries caused blood clots on his brain, and he was undergoing a series of tests, The Pilot and Ledger Star of Norfolk, reported. Doctors in Greenville are consulting with others at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, who are treating Hunter's ALS. "It's tight. I felt it in batting practice," McGwire said. "I don't want the disc to move.

This muscle is pretty tight. And we're playing on not the greatest turf." McGwire has not homered in 13 at-bats since hitting his 500th and 501st last Thursday against San Diego. He was l-for-10 with no extra-base hits in a four-game series at Pittsburgh over the weekend. McGwire, who has battled back problems since 1989, missed three games last month due to back spasms. "It's something I'll have to deal with the rest of my life," he said.

He certainly looked strong in batting practice Tuesday, homering on 14 of 15 swings. A couple of clouts landed nearly halfway to the top of the upper deck. LOB-Los Angeles 6, Montreal 5. 2B Hansen (7), Merced (7), Fullmer (22). SB-Blum (1).

Strawberry, hitting cleanup as the designated hitter, (lied out to left field twice, grounded out and struck out looking in hn four at-bats.

Columbus beat Toledo 2-1. "Each day is progress." Strawberry said. "If you haven't played as long as have, the game is tougn enough. He is hitting .292 (7-24) with four RBIs and stolen base with Columbus. I I Brocail signs 3-year deal with Tigers Sore back sidelines McGwire after dazzling batting practice The Associated Press DETROIT Reliever Doug Brocail has signed a new contract with the Detroit Tigers that could be worth $6 million over three years.

Brocail, 32, is deferring $600,000 of next year's salary so the team can use the money on improve-mmm ments. BASEBALL it's out of the way' he said. "I wanted it all over with going into the new stadium (next season) so all I have to do is worry about who we're going to have and how well we're going to play." Brocail will make $1.5 million next season and $2 million the following season, he said. If he pitches in 109 games between now and the end of the 2001 season, he guarantees himself $2.5 million in 2002. He is 4-3 with 2.76 ERA in 5 1 games this season.

The Tigers named catcher Javier Cardona and pitcher David Darwin, both of the club's Double-A Jacksonville Suns affiliate, as the minor league players of the Doug Brocail month for July. Cardona was honored as player of the month and Darwin as pitcher of the month. Cardona, 23, hit .309 with six home runs and 22 RBIs in July. He was the Tigers' 23rd round pick in the 1994 draft out of Lake Land (III.) Junior College. Darwin, a 26-year-old left-hander, was 5-1 with a 2.72 earned run average for the month.

He was Detroit's 26th round pick in 1996 out of Duke. Umpires have withdrawn their lawsuit against baseball, leaving the National Labor Relations Board as the last hope for 22 umps who want their jobs back. The lawsuit was pulled back just as the American and National leagues prepared to file a motion to dismiss the case. The leagues, claiming the suit was frivolous, had planned to ask for legal sanctions against the umpires' union and its lawyers. The umps said they might file another suit in federal court next week.

The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA Mark McGwire is used to this by now. He knows when he feels a twinge in his back, it's time to sit down. "Sometimes you can save yourself a trip to the DL by sitting out a couple of innings," said McGwire, the major league leader with 44 homers, after leaving Tuesday night's game with tightness in his lower back. McGwire, who thrilled a large crowd at Veterans Stadium with soaring shots in batting practice, walked in his only at-bat against Philadelphia starter Robert Person. He did not take the field for the bottom of the second inning.

The Cardinals lost 7-5, and manager Tony La Rus-sa said he wouldn't know until today if McGwire will miss any more games..
