Schmidt T— 255 A-5679 we all clicked again like we’d been together all along “We all have that memory of ’89 when we won together as much younger players We cherish that memory and it keeps us striving to do it again” Sandberg 37 was one of baseball’s best players in 1 989 and led the Cubs to the NL East title After several more outstanding seasons he retired in June 1994 — only to return last year with 25 homers and 92 RBI Dunston 34 was a superb shortstop in ’89 before injuries began dominating his career And just as Sandberg was returning last year Dunston was leaving to play for San Francisco After batting 300 for the Giants however Dunston rejoined the Cubs as a free agent Reunited he and Sandberg form the majors’ oldest double-play combination “He knows me and I know him” Dunston says “It’s just easy playing with him — no different than five six seven years ago” Padres 14 Rockies 7 SAN DIEGO COLORADO abrbbl Bates 2b 5 12 0 McCrckn rf 5 0 0 0 Burks cf 23 11 Bichette If

top the 300 mark five more times He batted a career-high 331 last season and won his fourth NL Gold Glove “It’s special having us together again” Grace says “I take great pride in playing next to Ryno a future Hall-of-Famer all these ears I feel like I’ve been part of istory “And Shawon is not only one of my best friends he kind of put me on the map Without him I don’t think you’d have heard of me because he made so many lousy throws in the dirt that I became known for my defense” Dunston says the division-clinching victory at Montreal on Sept 6 1989 remains the highlight of his career “When Mitch Williams threw that final strike we all jumped into each other’s arms and hugged and danced It was the best moment I’ve ever been associated with in sports” Dunston lim'lilLW: OXSCORESI Twins 16

playoffs to the Giants and Manager Don Zimmer started crying and told us it was the best team he ever had It was all so special I still watch the videotape with my kids” The Cubs have such fondness for ’89 because they have won only two titles of any kind in the last half-century But they reunited Dunston Sandberg and Grace not for nostalgia but for now The Cubs will need all the hitting and defense they can get from their retro infield if they are to improve on last year’s fourth-place finish in the NL Central “They’re all still great players” 24-year-old third baseman Kevin Orie says
