Monday, June 5, 1989 McCOMB ENTERPRISE-JOURNAL 5 m McDonald is 'cinch NEW YORK (AP) - Ben s McDonald began the season by pitching 44 2-3 consecutive scoreless innings. So it's no surprise that he'll be taken by the O's as the first pick in today's amateur draft. The first-place Baltimore Orioles, who gained the top pick with a 54-107 record last season, are expected to use their selection to take McDonald, who's 14-3 this season with Louisiana State. "In college, Ben throws 70 percent fastballs and challenges all of the hitters," LSU coach Skip Bertman said. "When he gets into pro ball, when he can pitch more, use all of his pitches, he'll be even more effective." McDonald, a 6-foot-7 right-hander, could be with the Orioles by the end of the season. He's struck out 194 in 148 1-3 innings and has a 2.91 earned-run average. "The pressure on Ben has been tremendous," Bertman said. "There was an ESPN camera right in the bullpen when he was warming up. He has been hounded for a month. He had to disconnect his telephone. That drains you." Expos scouting director Gary Hughes sees him as "the only cinch major leaguer." "It's a real good high-school Athletes display great determination (Continued from Page 4) Saturday's June Jubilee marked Kimble's second time to take part in such an event. He clocked a 24:07 in his first race in Jackson and turned in a 19:45 Saturday. "Instead of sitting around the house, I thought I'd try to start racing because it was something I was interested in. I never ran track in high school. I was too slow," said Kimble, who covered 40 yards in five seconds as a high school senior. Sco record Baseball standings AMERICAN LEAGUE East Division W L Pet.

Last year, only eight of the 26 picks in the first round were high school players. But this year, nine of the first 15 picks are expected to come from high school, including Nos. 2 through 7. Earl Cunningham, an outfielder from Lancaster (S.C.) High, is expected to be taken by the Atlanta Braves with the second pick. Through his first 65 at-bats this season, he was batting .446 with 11 homers and 25 runs batted in. "Atlanta had been talking to me a lot when the season was going," Cunningham said. "And I've watched some of their games on television, and they've talked about me. It's hard to tell who's going to pick me. But it'll probably be them." Tyler Houston, a catcher from Valley High in Las Vegas, will probably be taken third by the Seattle Mariners. In 87 at-bats, he hit .563 with 12 homers and 57 RBIs. Philadelphia has the fourth pick and, according to a survey by Baseball America, will take Jeff Jackson, an outfielder from Simeon High in Chicago. He hit .493 in 71 at-bats with 12 homers, 51 RBIs and 30 stolen bases. Texas, picking fifth, probably will This summer Kimble is finishing out his freshman year at Copiah-Lincoln Community College and planning to participate in other road races. The most remarkable thing about Kimble is that he remains high-spirited, determined and unshaken in spite of his handicap. Brent Causey, who won the race in 16:52, said he logged more than 700 hard miles in preparing for Saturday's run. All things considered, I suspect his preparation Nokes (8). W-Tibbs, 2-0.

Kemper Open POTOMAC, Md. (AP) - Final scores, prize money and relation to par Sunday In the $900,000 major leaguer' go for Paul Coleman, an outfielder from Frankston (Texas) High. St. Louis goes next and is expected to take right-hander Roger Salkeld, a right-hander from Saugus (Calif.) High. Frank Thomas, a first baseman from Auburn, should to the Chicago White Sox with the seventh pick. "He's strong, with outstanding power and not that bad defensively," White Sox's scouting director Al Goldis said. "He does need to lose weight, though. There's a lot of good-looking hitters among the high school kids, too, but they're tougher to project. Take Cunningham, for example. The other day I scouted him, the kid pitching against him was an eiehth-grader." Shortstop Eddie Zoskuy of Fresno State is expected to go next to the Cubs, according to Baseball America, and left-hander Kyle Abbott of Long Beach State should go ninth. Catcher Charles Johnson probably will be taken by Montreal to complete the top 10. Only the first round of the three-day draft is made public immediately. Teams are fearful that colleges will use the . draft as recruiting lists, so they don't release the complete list for about two weeks. was minuscule compared to what Kimble has had to endure. Part of the fascination of sports is beholding the physical abilities and outstanding feats performed by men and women, vicariously playing out our own fantasies of athletic grace and greatness. But just as we are awed by one who is able to run three miles in 16 minutes or leap high or jump long distances, we are just as inspired by triumphs of the human spirit.
