WP—Portugal. Balk—Gomez By The Associated Press Bob Costas vs. Al Michaels. Tim McCarver vs. Bob Uecker. The World Series this October could become Battle of the Network Stars if ABC and NBC, as expected, soon announce a unique agreement to share coverage. ABC was supposed to televise the event last year, but lost out because of the strike. NBC, under the old plan, was supposed to have it this year. Realizing there was a problem, all sides involved — ABC, NBC, The Baseball Network and baseball — have tried to work out a compromise. The result could be something almost as unusual as when CBS and NBC simultaneously showed the first Super Bowl between the Packers and Chiefs in January 1967. ABC, with Michaels doing play-byplay and McCarver handling the color, and NBC, with its team of Costas and Uecker, would not show games at the same time, though. Instead, they would take turns. Under one scenario, the Series package was to have been split up under a 23-2 format. The winner of a coin flip could choose to show either the first and last two games, or the middle three. Under another scenario, the winner of a coin flip was to pick one game, then the networks would alternate choosing two at a time. So, what would be more valuable — the rights to a possible Game 7, or a sure shot at Game 1? • MISSING MICHAEL: No surprise, Michael Jordan is still a big draw in Birmingham, even though he's long gone from the Barons. Last Sunday, the Barons held a pro-" motional day in which the first 1,500 fans received posters of Jordan wearing his Birmingham uniform — No. 45, that is.- That game against Huntsville attracted a bigger-than-usual crowd of 4,976. Through this week, the Barons aver- ; aged. 3,530 fans for the first 18 home '. '• dates. Last year, in Jordan's only sea- • : son in the Southern League, the Barons pulled 6,543 for the first 18 games. "It's been a little calmer," Barons publicity director Chris Pika said. The biggest name in Birmingham this spring, particularly since Pete Rose Jr. was sent down to Class A South Bend in late April, is Rob Dibble. Signed as a free agent by the Chicago White Sox, the former Reds relief ace is trying to prove he can come back from injuries . and pitch again in the majors. After struggling in his first outing, he had . nine strikeouts and a 1.80 ERA in his , next five innings. • THIS 'N THAT: Cubs pitcher An-.. thony Young, trying to come back from delicate "Tommy John" surgery, has joined Class A Daytona on an injury rehabilitation assignment. He is supposed to test his right elbow Monday night in a start against Kissimmee. ... Josh Booty, who drew a big bonus as Florida's No. 1 draft pick last June, was sus pended for three games for using an illegal bat this week for Class A Kane County. Booty, a highly touted third . baseman, began the game in a l-for-34 slump. After a double and single in a Midwest League game at Rockford, he was ejected and fined for using a bat that had grooves carved into the barrel LEAGUE LEADERS American League National League Murray Cle Carter Tor Tinsley Bos CDavis Cal Baerga Cle Ramirez Cle Boggs NY RAIomar Tor Raines Chi EMartlnez Sea G 14 15 14 15 14 14 13 15 13 14 AB 57 63 59 54 60 54 50 58 53 48 R 14 13 11 10 13 16 8 12 7 12 H 25 27 24 22 24 21 18 22 20 18 Pet. .439 .429 .407 .407 .400 .389 .380 .379 .377 .375 Gant has impressive return to Atlanta ' By Tht> AitocidUd Prost i ATLANTA — Ron Gant got through what he described as a "jierve-wracking" experience in the best way possible. ;The former Atlanta Braves outfielder returned as an opponent for the first time Friday night and hit a home run leading off the llth inning to give the Cincinnati Reds a 5-4 victory over his former teammates. ; "When it wins a ballgame it's special, no matter who it s against," Gant said. "It was definitely special. It was good to come back and hit a home run here." Gant had gone hitless in his first three at-bats, striking out twice before hitting the game- winner. "I finally calmed down a little," he said. He missed the entire 1994 season while recovering'from a broken right leg when he wrecked his dirt bike shortly before the start of spring training. "It was the first time I wrecked on them," he said. "It was an expensive wreck. I think I'm done with them now." Knowing he would be out, the Braves released him before the season began and paid one-sixth of his $5 million salary, $833,333, rather than the entire amount had they kept him. The Reds signed Gant to a two-year, multimillion dollar contract last June, a deal he sealed when he made the roster this spring. Gant says he's still not 100-percent recovered from the broken leg. "I'm probably around 95 percent," he said. "The leg is not completely healed. It's not completely solid." His manager, Davey Johnson, says Gant is about 80-percent effective, "but 80 percent of Ron Gant's better than most." Gant said the time off had helped him mentally. "I used to put a lot of pressure on myself to do well," he said. "I approach the game mentally better than I have in the past. It has helped me. All I'm worried about is the Cincinnati Reds getting to the playoffs." Gant said arriving at Atlanta Fulton County Stadium on Friday was strange. "It's a very, very different feeling," he said. "It's different to come in the other side, being in the other clubhouse, which I've never seen before." Gant, who still has his home in the metropolitan Atlanta area, hit 147 home runs during his Braves career that covered parts or all of seven seasons. "I'm happy to be a Red," he said. "It could be a blessing in disguise. I had a lot of great years in Atlanta but I don't think I was in their long-term plans." i RUNS—OnValentin, Boston, 17; Ramirez, Cleveland, 16; ByAnderson, Baltimore, 16; Berroa, Oakland, 15; Belle, Cleveland, 14; Murray, Cleveland, 14; 6 players are tied with 13 each.
