(AP) — A massive heart attack has been blamed for the death of a high school shortstop who collapsed and died during a game Tuesday, authorities said. Rankin County Coroner Jimmy Roberts announced the cause of death after an autopsy on Mike Abel, 15, of Brandon. Abel complained to his coach that he wasn't feeling well, then collapsed and died in the dugout, said Coach Charlie Butts. Abel had to be assisted from the field during the fifth inning of McLaurin High School's game, said Butts. Just before Abel collapsed, Butts said the youth turned to assistant coach Terry Blister and said, "Coach, I ain't never felt this bad before. Please help me." The coroner said that there was no history of heart disease. He said that the boy's heart appeared healthy, although it was a bit larger than normal. 'Still, there are a lot of people walking around like that," Roberts said. "It could be that playing sports and bumping around may have aggravated it." Coach Butts said there had not been any kind of blow, accident, collision or anything before Abel collapsed, although he said he did fall. "My pitcher walked their leadoff batter. Mike called time out. I could teU when I looked at him that something was wrong. I hollered from the dugout and asked if he was OK. He told me he didn't feel very well," Butts said. "I ran out and grabbed him. He said he had blurred vision and he felt kind of nauseated. I took him out. He got to the dugout and sat down. I noticed he was getting kind of pale and he was rather cold. I thought maybe he was fixing to throw up. At this time, he said was having difficulty breathing. Then he just slumped over," Butts said. The game against St. Joseph High School of Jackson was suspended after Abel collapsed. Butts said Abel collapsed at 4:45 p.m. and was pronounced dead 1% hours later. Jeff Walker was pitching for McLaurin at the time. "It was just a shock," Walker said. "He said he was feeling bad and that he had trouble breathing. The next thing I knew, they was giving him CPR. "We are taking it rough. He was a friend to everybody. Everybody liked him. He was just a great guy," Walker said. Abel is survived by his parents, a brother and a sister. A family spokesman said Abel was a "wonderful boy" and had no history of health problems. Butts said Abel had been a starter on McLaurin's baseball team and had a .333 batting average this year. He said Abel was also a two-year starter on the football team while playing wide receiver and defensive back.

BUGS interested in Ozzie Smith PITTSBURGH (AP)- — All-Star shortstop Ozzie Smith, in the last year of a $3.6 million contract with the St. Louis Cardinals, has caught the eye of the shortstop-hungry Pittsburgh Pirates, according to published reports. "He is an exciting player and we need an exciting player," Pirates President Dan Galbreath told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in an article in Wednesday's editions. Smith, 30, a seven-year veteran and one of the top defensive shortstops in the major leagues, has been unable to come to terms with the Cardinals on a new contract. His agent, Ed Gottlieb, reportedly is seeking a four-year deal that would pay him $8 million. "I think obviously if we can't sign him that there's got to be some thought about trading him," Fred Kuhlmann, the Cardinals' chief operating officer, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I hope we don't reach that point." Florida retains football crown BIRMINGHAM, Ala.

Central opens rebuilding season By STEPHEN WHITE Sports Writer Because several of his athletes will be gone on spring break today, Salina Central coach Dennis Wah- Igren isn't sure how his team will fare when the Mustangs open their boys' tennis season in the Abilene Invitational. In fact, the! first-year tennis! coach wasn't even I sure Wednesday [ what his lineup would look like to-1 day. But even if 1 Wahlgren had a WajMgren full contingent of athletes for today's match, he said, he still wouldn't be able to iron out his roster. With only two returning lettermen and a flock of freshmen dominating the roster, Central's tradition-rich tennis program faces a rebuilding year. "We have only one senior currently out and four juniors," Wahlgren said. "We have quite a number of freshmen that will be contributing. They'll provide quite a lot of competition for our returning players. "We're basically a very young team; so, how we will stand up against competition will be a question. We'll be in a learning situation. "We'll be trying a variety of combinations in practice and meets. We need to determine who's going to work best together," Wahlgren said. Junior Jeff Holgerson and sophomore Steve Schutter have the nod as Central's No. 1 doubles team. "Past that No. 1 doubles team, it's really wide open," Wahlgren said. With neither Holgerson nor Schutter competing today, Wahlgren was left trying to fill both doubles teams for Central's season-opener. Wahlgren said / today's doubles teams would comprise some combination of junior Tom Jett, who with limited varsity experience joins Holgerson as the Mustangs' most- seasoned veterans, freshmen Brett Johnson and Brett Beasley and sophomore Chris Marshall. Two more freshmen, Eli Muhl and Troy Phinney, are penciled in to play singles. I To be sure, Central is young, but the Mustangs' youngsters are also good. Two weeks ago, Central's junior varsity won a four-team tournament in Lindsborg. "Some of those individuals that played in that will end up the year playing varsity for us," Wahlgren said, speculating that four of his nine freshmen could get considerable varsity action. "At this point in the season, I don't know. Do you have a crystal ball?" Mustangs roster SENIORS (1) John Harris, JUNIORS (4) Nick Carroll, Jeff Holgerson, John Horelsl Tom Jelt.
