Across the stadium, from the most expensive box seats to hotdog vendors in the outfield, they all said it: The national pastime, an odd game in which the object is to get back to where you started, is a contender once again. "Now there's a reason to come back to baseball," said Sherry Irby, a pharmacist from Florence, AJa., who drove all night with.her husband and two young sons to se« McGwire. They set up shop on cardboard mats in the outfield standing-room-only section. "Good role models are few and far between for kids," said her husband, Ken. The home-run race being run by McGwire and the Cubs' Sammy Sosa, who has a 58, has Fontesfiles for disability PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — Former Detroit Lions coach Wayne Fontes haa filed for worker's compensation for injuries he said he sustained while coaching. Fontes, 59, filed the claim March 2, according to state Department of Labor records. Fontes, who now lives in Tarpon Springs, Fla., earned $850,000 in the last year of his contract with the Lions. In the claim, Fontes lists many ailments he said were caused or worsened by coaching duties. "Several traumatic incidents and strenuous, repetitive job duties caused and significantly aggravated injuries to neck, shoulders, lower back, chest, upper extremities, right leg, ankle, foot, resulting in disability," the application states. heralded a resurgence of the game, scorned by many since its players went on strike in 1394. Attendance is up 3.3 percent this year and on a steady rise. "Baseball aort of lost its way. Mark McGwire is doing a great job for the game," said Bob Edmiston, 87, who has been attending Cardinals games since 1920. "He's really the home-run hitter of our era," said Roger Maris Jr."This is something phenomenal in our lifetime," said Tony La Russa, McGwire's manager. "The whole country has been involved in this," a choked-up McG- wire said. "So be it. I'm happy to bring the country together." No. 62 came at 8:18 p.m., off an 88-mph fastball from a .Chicago Cubs pitcher named Steve Trachsel, who stood still on the mound as flashbulbs popped, fireworks exploded and 11 minutes of triumphant chaos unfolded. Watching from the box seats were the sons and daughters of Roger Maris, who broke the fabled record of Babe Ruth in 1961 by hitting 61 home runs. McG- wire climbed into the stands to hug them and share the moment their father couldn't; he died in 1985 at 51. "I wanted to embrace him for what he did and kind of share in the moment," Roger Maris Jr. said. McGwire said he knew he'd hit the record homer after touching Maris' bat earlier in the day.
