El Paso Times Sunday. June 10, 1990 Diablos player plans June 19 wedding at Cohen Center By Rick Cantu El Paso. Times Knowing a diamond is a woman's best friend, Diablos shortstop Charlie Montoyo has big plans for his sweetheart, Dana Espinosa. Montoyo and Espinosa plan to be .'married June 19th at Cohen 'Center, right before the Diablos' Texas League game with Midland. Since a baseball diamond has been Montoyo's work address for several years, a homeplate wedding seems appropriate. "That's the last day of the Texas League's first half, so hopefully we can celebrate our wedding with a championship," Montoyo said Saturday night. Montoyo and Espinosa met two years ago in Stockton, Calif. Montoyo, now 23, was playing for the Milwaukee Brewers Single-A team. Although he's seen other baseball weddings, Montoyo didn't figure to be involved in one. He dreamed of walking down a church aisle, not a baseball foul line. The Diablos' front office approached Montoyo with the idea of a stadium wedding. They will pay for a cake, judge and a hotel room for the nappy couple on their wedding night. For those who think a baseball wedding lacks romance, Montoyo and Espinosa have made other plans. After the season, they will go to Montoyo's hometown in Puerto Rico for a church ceremony.

The seven football players turned hoopsters signed patiently, smiling and visiting with their El Paso fans. But one player had a different signature: Everson Walls, No. 28, N.Y. Walls, who led the National Football League three times and the Cowboys five times in interceptions, is no longer a Cowboy. After nine seasons, Montreal signs Andrews, reportedly for $235,000 By Steve Ramirez El Paso Times LAS CRUCES - Saying he was ready to start his life "on the other side," Carlsbad High School baseball star Shane Andrews signed a Major League Baseball contract Saturday with the Montreal Expos. Andrews, 19, signed with Expos' area supervisor Manny Estrada after the South All-Stars swept a three-game series against the North in the 15th annual New Mexico All-Star series at Apodaca Park. Neither Andrews or Estrada would disclose details of the contract. However, Andrews reportedly received a $235,000 signing bonus. "They gave me what I wanted and plenty more,'" Andrews said. '"I'm nappy because I can help my family out now. I'm ready to get life started." Andrews, 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds, was the Expos' first-round draft pick and the 11th E layer taken overall in Major eague Baseball's amateur free-agent draft. "I'm real excited," Andrews said. "I'm going to join my best friend, Stan Robertson, through my younger years. He and I grew up together in Carlsbad and he'll be my roommate in West Palm Beach." As Andrews signed his one-year contract, Estrada looked up and smiled. "It's legit," he said. "He's an Expo ana we're proud to have him. (Andrews' family) needs to be thanked because they drove a hard bargain. We got the guy we wanted and the Expos' management feels they've added a quality player to the organization." Estrada said Andrews will report Monday to Montreal's rookie league team at Bradon-ton, Fla. The team is in the Gulf Coast League. According to Estrada, Andrews and the Expos reached agreement on the contract Tuesday, but nothing was finalized until after the all-star series "The All-Star game had a lot of meaning for him," Estrada said. "Our contract was negotiable, contingent on the All-Star game. He wouldn't sign until after it was over." Andrews led Carlsbad to a 26-0 record and its second straight state championship this season. The Cavemen were ranked as high as fourth in the USA Today high school baseball poll. Mayfield's Angel leads the South to series sweep By Steve Ramirez El Paso Times LAS CRUCES - Rooming with Shane Andrews this weekend during the New Mexico North-South All-Star series didn't hurt Mayfield High's James Angel. Angel led the South to a doubleheader sweep Saturday, after learning a thing or two about relaxing at the plate from Andrews, the state's top player from Carlsbad. The South won the first game at Apodaca Park, 6-5, and the second game, 2-1. "I guess I was a little lucky getting the right guy to room with, - Angel said after his 3-for-5 day with two home runs and three runs batted in. "Usually, I get so nervous before, a game that I can't eat. But in the series, I was completely relaxed. Shane had a lot to do with that because he had a way of keeping me loose. I saw the pitchers up there throwing peas.' But to me, they looked more like beach balls." Andrews, a first-round draft pick of the Montreal Expos, taught by example, too. He was 3- for-4 with two doubles and a home run. "He's amazing," said Andrews" of Angel. "He was a nice guy to room with. He's a big 'ol boy, and I know I wouldn't want to mess with him." Angel and Andrews were responsible for driving in all the South's runs in the first game. After the North had taken a 4- 3 lead after five innings, Andrews tied the frame in J the sixth with a leadoff home riui MJ It'll vuc uairei Elcrth-Sculh all-s&i baseball later, Angel put the South ahead to stay with a homer to the same spot where Andrews hit his. Saturday's doubleheader sweep also gave the South a sweep of the three-game series. Friday, the South won 8-5 as Carlsbad's Jesse Fuentes keyed a six-run fifth inning for the South. It was only the second time in the 15 years of the series that a team had swept. In fact, series organizer Bob Ogas couldn't remember the exact year the first sweep occured. "It was sometime in the early years," Ogas said. "I really, really can't remember." Neither could North coach Bill Gracey or South Coach Dave Graham. "No way, no way, would I have thought this year's series would have been a sweep," Graham said. "With all the major league draftees here and the other talent both teams had, nobody in their right mind would have thought sweep." Gadsden's Adan Garcia was the winning pitcher in Saturday's first game and Mayfield's Tony Lopez was the winner in the second. Both threw complete games. Garcia gave up six hits and struck out six, and Lopez allowed seven hits and struck out seven. Angel will attend Adams State in Colorado on a football scholarship, but said he had hoped to receive a baseball scholarship. after not alwavs seeing eye-to- eye with new coach Jimmy Johnson in that ninth season. Walls contract was not renewed and he became a New York Giant. "It's really not how much you want to play, it's how much they let you play," a philosophic Walls said of his NFL future. "You have to judge it year by year. I went to the Giants mini-camp and felt like I was the best defensive back there. I was uneasy . . . new guys, new system, new coaches. But I started pretty strongly and finished very strongly. I was pleased." Walls said he will go into camp as the nickel back, a fifth defender on passing situations. "I've always been In good condition, had good quickness. But my lack of speed, my personality conflict with the (Cowboys) coach, all the losing Just wears you down." Everson Walls He hopes to earn a starting job. But, to Dallas fans, he will always be a Cowboy. "We're going to miss you," was the standard comment of El Paso's Cowboy fans after getting an autograph Saturday night. For Walls, it will be a difficult but good move. He grew up in the Dallas suburb of Richardson, played at Berkner High. After getting an accounting degree from Grambling where he led the nation with 11 interceptions in 1980, he signed as a free agent with the Cowboys. Walls became the first player ever to lead the NFL in interceptions his first three seasons. Going into last season he was the only player in the top four active career interception lead ers with less than 10 years experience. "I've always been in good condition, had good quickness," he said with a shrug. "But my lack of speed, my personality conflict with the coach, all the losing just wears you down. I Elayed in one of these basket-all games in Longview and a guy I didn't even know just a fan came up and said I didn't even look like myself last year. I think he was probably right. I'm getting a fresh start in New York." And what about the Cowboys? America's team? "For my friends sake, I hope they can start winning again," Walls said. "For the city's sake, too. 1 glEgmy f jTirn ; rf f n l rr jr m y-i-i mi r-j. i . . p SUMMER HOT PRICES! We'll Beat Any Competitive Price on the Brands We Sell! Pius Many Items Reduced For Clearance.
