Cfaisox scout reaps Big Apple harvest AL GOLDIS' roots are in the city. Fresh Meadows, Queens, to be exact. Now the Chicago White Sox director of scouting and player development, Goldis has a national reputation as an outstanding batting instructor and just a few years ago was a partner in the Bayside Indoor Batting Range. At that time he was also a scout for the Chicago White Sox and discovered a young third baseman in Central Park named Devon White. "White is a player you have to have on your high school All-Star team" Goldis told this writer at the time talking about the Park West High School infielder. I followed his advice, -checked out White and named the future California Angels center fielder to the Manhattan-Bronx All-Star squad. Now with the White Sox based in Sarasota, Fla., Goldis has not ignored the local talent as a number of the Sox farmhands are from this area. . Goldis considers former St Francis College pitcher Bob Resnikoff, a left-handed relief pitcher for Sarasota in the Florida State League (A) as a "tremendous prospect". "He was a walk-on, coming down for a tryout and has impressed ever since," said Goldis. "Last year he was 6-2 and while he is just 1-2 as a reliever this season, his ERA is an impressive 1.96. His curveball is his out pitch and his fastball is clocked at 86 mph. His strikeout-innings pitched ratio is excellent with 44 K's in 36 innings." The pitching coach for Sarasota is Don Cooper, a former major league pitcher with Minnesota, Toronto and the Yankees out of Msgr.; McClancy HIGH SCHOOL BILL TRAVERS If-4 M CI J 3 and New York Tech. Former St. Raymond's center fielder Cliff Gonzalez is an outfielder with Sarasota and is hitting just .228 with 11 RBI and no homers. But Goldis feels the hot weather makes the Florida State League a pitcher's league. "If you can hit .250 there, you are doing well," Goldis said. The Sox recently picked up former Cardozo shortstop Dean Tatarian from the Minnesota Twins and assigned him to Utica (Class A) of the New York-Penn League. "They (Minnesota) didn't seem to teach him much," said Goldis. "We're working on his feet to help his range, getting him to use a quick first step, give him explosiveness. He's playing shortstop until there's proof that he can't do it" Tatarian, who cracked a homer into the left-field stands at Yankee Stadium in the Daily News High School All-Stars doubleheader three years ago, has played, in eight, of the iirsL 12 . games hitting ; .240. 3 w i JL X 't Keith Harris, a center fielder out of Queensborough Community College, ? is doing well at Utica where he's bat-; ting .353. As a rookie last year in Sara- sota he batted .324. - There is also a Daily News All-Star foursome Dan Monzon Jr., Mike Mongiello, Scott Egan and Joe Solo-mini playing for the Gulf Coast White Sox in the Rookie Gulf Coast League. Monzon, ex-Cardinal Spell-man and Pace University infielder, is the son of Dan Monzon Sr., former major league infielder with Minnesota and now the supervisor for scouts on the East Coast and Latin America for the White Sox. Egan, a catcher, signed a contract last June on the Yankee dugout after News All-Star twinbill with scout Eddie Ford. Solomini, another catcher, signed as a free agent out of Fairfield University. Jeff Schaefer, a shortstop from Pat-chogue, was up with Chicago earlier in the year but is now in AAA at Vancouver. The Long Island Mets, Tatarian's former sandlot team, went 5-0 in Youngstown, Ohio, capping the trip with a 5-0 victory over Fairfield, Ohio, in the finals to win the July 4th Old Timers Invitational. Mike Becker's Mets also beat Fairfield in the winners bracket's fourth game (11-5) of the 16-team double-elimination tournament. In the championship win over Fairfield, the Mets' Scott Larkin (Chamin-ade, Fairfield University-bound) scattered six hits and walked none while Newtown's Gaston Budes paced the offense with a homer and two RBI. In their previous win, Phil An- driola, the all-city catcher from St. : Francis Prep who's headed for liar- : "l vard, was 3-for-5 with one RBI; Blind ; Brook's Rich Shearer was ?-for-4 with : v van RBlrwhiIe Budes Jiad twd.hits and ,-t ; a RBI. ; - i i 4 ;. : : t J I ' ' , ' 1 '' " ': ' 5 3 : Sean O'Brien, who opened the tournament with a 3-for-3 day with fiye RBI, was named tourney MVP, , Aspiring to play college baseball?
