Still, it's a big step from Class AA to the majors. Zimmer thought Walton had the talent to do it, but he wasn't sure about the kid's mental toughness. "Coming into spring training, I just stuck him out there to make sure he didn't embarrass himself or the club," Zimmer said. "From the very first game, I kept him in there and he never did anything wrong at the plate. He wasn't overwhelmed at all in spring training." Before the season started, Gregg Jefferies of the New York Mets was the overwhelming favorite for NL Rookie of the Year. But Jefferies' batting average is stuck below .250, and the race is wide open. The way Dawson sees it, Walton should win Rookie of the Year that is if another Cubs rookie, Dwight Smith, doesn't edge him out. Smith, 25, is hitting so well (.359 overall) that Zimmer can't keep him out of the lineup. He started in center field last night (Walton moved to left) and rapped out a single to give him at least one hit in 13 of the Cubs' past 15 games. He has 22 hits in his last 54 at-bats for a .407 average. "Dwight's going to give Walton a run for his money" for Rookie of the Year, Dawson said. "As far as I'm concerned, those two are my favorites. They're hungry." "I think you have to be hungry as a rookie," Smith said. "Any rookie Cubs rookie Jerome Walton FROM PAGE 23 The Cubs' off-season acquisition of relief pitcher Mitch Williams is generally considered the single biggest reason for the team's resurgence in the NL East. What made that deal possible was Walton. To get Williams, the Cubs had to part with Rafael Palmeiro, one of the most promising young outfielders in baseball. Palmeiro batted .307, with 41 doubles and 53 RBI last season. But the Cubs risked trading him because they knew they still had Walton, a top minor-league prospect. All Walton did last year was win the Class AA Eastern League batting title with a .331 average and lead the league's outfielders with a .993 fielding percentage. Walton threw out three runners at home plate in a game against Reading, then came back the next night to cut down another runner at home. It came as no surprise when Baseball America, in its midseason poll of managers, ranked Walton as the Eastern League's best defensive Today's pitching formrecords as starters coming into this league who isn't hungry, there's something wrong." Smith and Walton said they haven't talked to each other about the Rookie of the Year award. They -said their rivalry was friendly, and that they were pulling for each other to win it. "I'm just going to sit back and let that take care of itself," Walton said. "We'll see what happens." Said Smith: "I would rather have a championship ring. The bottom line is, we want to win." Yanks deal Henderson back to A's NEW YORK (AP) - Rickey Henderson, the fourth-leading base stealer of all-time, was traded by the New York Yankees to the Oakland Athletics yesterday for pitchers Greg Cadaret and Eric Plunk and outfielder Luis Polonia. Henderson, who is in the last year of a five-year contract and has been unhappy with what the Yankees have been offering him, was bitting .247 with 25 stolen bases this season. He has 819 career stolen bases. Henderson was acquired by the Yankees from Oakland on Dec. 8, 1984, and signed a five-year contract. He had said the Yankees had until the All-Star break to sign him and was said to be looking for a three-year deal worth more than $8 million. Henderson's best season with the Yankees was 1985, when he hit .314 with 24 home runs, 72 RBI and 80 stolen bases while scoring 146 runs. He batted .263 in 1986, stealing 87 bases and scoring 130 runs, then was limited by a leg injury to 95 games in 1987 when he batted .291 and had 41 stolen bases. Last season, he hit .305 with 93 stolen bases six home runs. He set the modern major-league record for steals in 1982 with 130 while with Oakland. Left-hander Cadaret, 27, was 0-0 with a 2.28 ERA in 26 games this season. Righty Plunk, 25, was 1-1 with one save and a 2.20 ERA in 23 games. Polonia, 24, was hitting .286 with 13 stolen bases. He entered 1989 with a .289 career average in 209 games. FBI has bet sheets with Rose's prints FROM PAGE 23 making handwriting analysis impossible." The law enforcement official said that the alterations the suit apparently refers to were a result of the fingerprinting process. The chemical used to lift fingerprints from paper, he said, discolors and warps the paper. Janszen, who avoided a drug distribution charge in a plea-bargaining agreement, was sentenced last January to six months in jail for failing to report income from the sale of steroids. He was released from a halfway house in Cincinnati last week after serving four months of the sentence.

Pirates calendar Home double off Bair and came around on fly balls by Berryhill and McClendon to score the game's only run. Williams came on in the bottom of the inning, and his first three pitches to Andy Van Slyke were very wild. Ley-land felt the next two were inside, but Hallion called them strikes. After Van Slyke struck out, Bonilla popped out on the first pitch, and Leyland strode from the dugout having already been ejected by Hallion. "Mitch Williams has a history of walking the first batter he faces, and he was all over the place on the first three pitches," Leyland said. "I asked him Hallion, 'How can you give a guy those two strikes?' And he said, 'You're gone.'" Moments later, Jeff King, who batted for Bair, popped out, and the game ended. But not Leyland's anger. "The guy's all over the place with his first three pitches to Van Slyke, and he gets two strikes," Leyland said. "And Gary Redus led off the 10th with a walk, and Rey Quinones sacrificed him to second. Redus then stole third, his 14th steal in 15 tries. "That's what I call stealing a big. base," Leyland said. "That's not stealing a base when the score's 6-1 or 7-1. That's a big base. He's good at that. That's why he's one of the best base-stealers. He's played great." However, Maddux struck out Junior Ortiz on a full-count pitch that was high and inside and probably ball four. "In my mind, that was the big play of - the game," Chicago Manager Don Zimmer said. "If he walks him, I'm in a bind. But I didn't have to worry about it." Zimmer knew what to do after Ortiz struck out. He ordered R.J. Reynolds and Barry Bonds walked intentionally, loading the bases. That brought up Lind, who took two balls, then a strike. Maddux's next pitch appeared high to Leyland, but umpire Tom Hallion called it strike two. With the count full, Lind bounced into a fielder's choice, and the game went to the 11th. "I just threw the ball down the middle and let him get himself out," Maddux said. In the 11th, Varsho led off with a . FROM PAGE 23 In the Chicago eighth, Maddux, who led National League pitchers with 19 hits last season, led off with the second of his three hits but was left at second. In the Pirate eighth, John Cangelosi led off with a pinch-hit single, his sixth hit in his past 13 pinch-hit at-bats. But after Drabek sacrificed him to second, Barry Bonds bounced to second, Cangelosi taking third, and Jose Lind flied to left. Andre Dawson opened the Chicago ninth with a single, and Gary Varsho ran for him. Damon Berryhill sacrificed " him to second, and a wild pitch moved him to third. But Drabek got Lloyd McClendon on a pop to Bobby Bonilla and retired Vance Law on a liner to left. After the Pirates went out in the ninth, Leyland turned the game over to Doug Bair. "Drabek was very, very impressive," Leyland said. "That's the best he's pitched in a long time. He jammed some guys. He pitched inside. He pitched nine great innings, but he was pushing it a little bit getting out of those jams late. He'd had enough." Bair worked out of a first-and-sec-ond, one-out jam himself in the 10th. Then the Pirates had a great opportunity to win the game. Thur. Fri. Sat. Sun. Mon. Tue.
