C2 The Sun THURSDAY, May 20, 1993 Kaleidoscope Fantasy golf camp playing for pretty hefty 'skins' Tom Kite is preparing to play in the Kemper Open this week, but he took some time Wednesday to promote golfs answer to baseball's fantasy camp. If nothing else, it's the most expensive camp around. -. At a cost of $25,000, each camper will have the opportunity to play in a four-day tournament at Las Vegas this November. There will be at least one pro in each foursome, but their scores won't count. Therefore, only the campers will be vying for the prizes. , "The idea is to give everyone an idea of what it's like to play in a professional tournament," Kite said. "We want them to feel the heat, to have a chance to choke in the stretch." x Each of the campers will stay at Caesars Palace and play at the Angel Park Golf Club. They will receive four days of instruction from the pros, eat at lavish restaurants and receive gifts such as custom-made golf clubs and golf bags. Round-trip transportation from any city in North America is included. Kite said the idea came from a friend of his caddy. "He figured that if baseball can have a fantasy camp, why not golf?" Kite said. "So I told my agent, and he got the ball rolling." OBSERVATION FROM FRONT ROW: Former baseball un-great Bob Uecker on his major-league career: "Anybody with ability can play in the big leagues. But to be able to trick people year in and year out the way I did, I think that's a much greater feat." TAKE ONE FOR TEAM IN HAWAII: Sean Salisbury on how his Minnesota Vikings teammates kidded him about his lack of playing time a couple seasons ago, saying he should go to the Pro Bowl as the inactive QB: "I'll go as the scout-team quarterback so the other guys don't get hurt." HOLE IN RUMOR: Kentucky basketball coach Rick Pitino on a report that he was going to coach the Lakers: "The only time I talked to the Lakers was when I asked (general manager) Jerry West to get me on a golf course on the West Coast." HEADING HOME: New Orleans Saints linebacker Sam Mills on the size of teammate Vaughn Johnson's head: "It's so big! You know, he even comes from the right hometown. Morehead City, N.C. More-head City." Sports in brief Raiders, Ismail try to work out deal for '93 season The Raiders and Rocket Ismail continue to progress toward a deal for the coming season and Bruce McNall's decision to cancel the wide receiver's Toronto Argonauts contract is unrelated to the negotiations, Ismail's agent said Wednesday. "Things are starting to heat up a little bit," Bob Woolf said of talks with the Raiders. The Raiders reportedly offered in excess of $1 million a year in an efTort to lure Ismail, the former Notre Dame star whose NFL rights they secured with a fourth-round draft pick in 1991. That offer was rejected by Ismail, who is seeking a contract more in line with what Desmond Howard commanded from the Washington Redskins last year ($1.4 million annually). McNall, who owns hockey's Kings in addition to the Canadian Football League Argonauts, said Monday that Ismail's lucrative personal-services contract had been canceled with two years left on it. WOMEN ATHLETES BETTER STUDENTS: Female athletes who started college in 1985 became better students than their male counterparts, according to an NCAA study released Wednesday. . Relatively poor classroom performance by males even caused the overall graduation rate among all 1985 student-athletes to fall below that of the student body in general. But a general trend of improving graduation rates of male and females was shown over the previous survey, which accounted for athletes who enrolled in 1984. RICHARDSON TO MEET WITH HAWKS: Arkansas coach Nolan Richardson said the Atlanta Hawks want to talk with him about their coaching job, and he said they probably will get together this week. . "There are some (jobs) that when they approach you, you don't even look into them," Richardson said Wednesday. "There are others you need to sit down and take a look to see if you're interested. On this position, I owe that to myself and to my family." MAGIC TO PLAY IN SANTA BARBARA: Magic Johnson will play his first official game in the United States since he retired last year when he joins current and former college players in his own All-Star Classic on May 26 in Santa Barbara. v Among the players scheduled to play are Larry Drew, Brian Shaw, Chris Mills, Ed Stokes. Richard Petruska and Lucious Harris. SHEA TO BE DEMOLISHED? The New York Mets owners are pressing for a $1 billion complex featuring a domed stadium and amusement park, New York Newsday reported. '. The new facility, with a retractable roof, would be built on property adjoining Shea Stadium, and Shea would demolished. BRIEFLY NOTED: Amleto Monacalll moved into the lead by averaging 232 in eight games in the $1 50,000 Columbia 300 Open in San Antonio, Texas San Antonio Spurs guard Willi Anderson fractured his right eye socket during Tuesday night's 109-97 loss to the Phoenix Suns, but Anderson will be able to play in tonight's game. ; From Sun News Services v Boar of the crowd Th Sun publlhe letters to the Sport editor on Saturday.

The High Desert Mavericks used a 15-hit attack to defeat the San Bernardino Spirit, 10-6, before 932 at Fiscalini Field on Wednesday night. The win was the second consecutive for the Mavericks and stretched their lead to 5' games over the second-place Spirit. "We've been playing this way all year," said Mavericks manager Fredi Gonzalez. "We're pretty steady. I'm pleased how things are going." Gonzalez has to be pleased to see his team play so well, considering the pitching they have faced. The past two games the Mavericks haven't been beating just any old starters. They've been able to chase the Cal League's top two ERA leaders. Tuesday it was Rod Pedraza and Wednesday it was starter and loser Rick DeHart. DeHart picked up four strikeouts in the first two innings and looked like he would have another good performance but the Mavericks used a couple of singles, an error and a two-run home run by right fielder Tim Clark to take a 3-0 lead. Clark finished the night going 4-for-5 with a couple of doubles, the homer and three RBI. "Right now I feel pretty good up there," said Clark. "But I think the key is our leadoff guys are getting on and putting pressure on the opposing pitchers." San Bernardino came back with a run in the bottom of the inning to close the gap to 3-1. The Mavericks then ran off a string of three consecutive innings where they scored two runs starting in the fourth. Shortstop Ramon Martinez received a leadoff walk, stole second and came around on Carl Everett's two-run shot. . "We're playing well as team," Everett said. "We're swinging the bats well and the pitching is solid." Refusing to go away, the Spirit added two runs of its own on a two-run shot by catcher Michael Fig-ga to make it 5-3. There was some question to whether it was fair or foul, but the home-plate umpire signaled emphatically that it was fair. The homer was Figga's sixth of the year. He hit one all oflast year. "I don't know how I'm doing it," Figga said. "I'm just seeing the ball well." In the fifth, Clark doubled to open the inning and scored on third baseman Edison Renteria's single, which chased DeHart. Renteria later scored on a Martinez sacrifice fly, making it 7-3. San Bernardino relievers didn't fare much better as the Muvericks hitters were indiscriminate who they knocked around. With John Sutherland on the mound, left fielder Kerwin Moore started the sixth with a single and moved to third on first baseman John Toale's single. A double by Clark scored Moore, and an error by first baseman Brian Turner allowed Toale to score, putting High Desert up 9-4. San Bernardino mounted a rally in the bottom of the seventh when Shawn Buchanan led off with a walk and went to second on center fielder Manny Martinez's single. An RBI single by designated hitter Ryan Freeburg and a run-scoring single by left fielder Bo Gilliam moved the Spirit to within three at 9-6. But Mavericks reliever George Kerfut retired the last three. Toale, the Cal League's top home-run hitter belted his 11th to cap the Mavericks' scoring in the eighth. Jim Magill came on in the ninth to close the door for High Desert. Spirit notes The third and final game of the series is tonight at 7:05. Pitching matchup: Scott Rose (3-0, 2.93) for the Spirit and Joel Adamson (0-1, 4.28) for the Mavericks To replace Jesus Tavarez (who is out for at least 10 days), the Mavericks have brought up outfielder Scotty Samuels. Samuels, from Arizona State, is in his second year of pro ball. . . . Spirit catcher Michael Flgga belted his sixth home run of the year in the fourth. The homer was his third in his last three games and fifth in his last seven Spirit third baseman Tim Scott was thrown out of the game in between the fourth and fifth. It was the first time he has been ejected this season . . . The first 2,500 fans tonight will receive a team photo. . . . Attendance watch: There were 932 fans at Fiscalini Field on Wednesday to bring the Spirit's season total to 22,626 in 23 dates. That's an average of 984 per game. Palm Springs rallies to defeat Quakes By James Curran Sun Sports Writer RANCHO CUCAMONGA Palm Springs' little-hitters-that-could provided Rancho Cucamonga Quakes manager Keith Champion with a heck of a flashback. They also managed to squeeze in a 4-3 California League victory at the Quakes' expense in front of 4,510 fans at the Epicenter on Wednesday. Palm Springs (18-20) rallied from a 3-2 deficit in the eighth by coaxing five walks out of the Rancho Cucamonga bullpen. The last walk, forcing in the game-winning run, came from mighty-mite pinch-hitter Joe Urso, all 5-foot-7 of him, against Quakes stopper JefTHuber. Quakes note Bleachers will be installed in foul territory behind the ground-level cafes today. The bleachers will bump up capacity at the Epicenter by 440 seats. The temporary seats, which will be used for the first time on Saturday, will go on sale today for $2.50 . . . Out with one bum major-league arm, in with another. The San Diego Padres, the Quakes' parent club, placed Scott Garrelts on the disabled list on Wednesday. Garrelts, on rehabilitation assignment after having a tear In his right elbow tendon surgically repaired, went 0-4 with a 5.40 earned run average in seven games with Rancho Cucamonga. Meanwhile, Padres starter Bruce Hurst will begin his rehab by starting for the Quakes tonight. The Quakes will also pick up outfielder Dave Staton, who was demoted from Trlple-A Las Vegas.
