C2I The Sun THURSDAY, May 2, 1991 KALEIDOSCOPE Card gives Rickey a new dimension You can't see Rickey run in the latest collectible being marketed in connection with a certain Oakland outfielder. But you can make him look happy. To commemorate Rickey Henderson breaking Lou Brock's career record by stealing his 939th career base, a Van Nuys company has produced 250,000 hologram cards showing the A's left fielder in all his 3- D glory. The card shows Henderson holding a bat and his face changing from a serious look to a wide grin, and proclaims him the "All-Time Stolen Base Leader 939!" To make the card, Henderson had to stand on a turntable and freeze like a wax figure as hundreds of shots were taken on movie film. The company. Field of Vision Productions Inc., said the card could sell for $10 to $20. "It's a tribute to him breaking that record," company president Hal DuBois said. "It took 200 frames of film to get that feeling of being a real smooth image. "When I look at this card, I get more of a sense of his personality more than a static two-dimensional shot. He's got a range of expression. It's like having him right there." Ducking the issue New York outfielder Kevin McReynolds, on the fog at Shea Stadium that caused the Mets' game against San Diego to be called in the seventh inning Tuesday night: "When I go duck hunting I pray for a day like this. But not for playing baseball." In the thick of it Add, fog: How heavy was it? "Ever go swimming?" McReynolds said. "Ever close your eyes underwater? That's what it was like." Dog days Former Clippers coach Don Casey is now a Boston Celtics assistant, and he's in the playoffs for the first time in his seven-year NBA coaching career. "It's toughest on my dog," Casey said. "He's waiting for me and wondering, 'Where the heck is he? It's the last week of April. He should be home.' " The bare essentials " Could this be the real reason the White Sox signed Bo Jackson? A commercial airing in Chicago features Jackson in a Sox uniform, but with bare feet. Bo looks into the camera and says (you guessed it): "Shoeless Bo Jackson."

From Sun News Services Preps Nick Leyva Hubbs winners plan to return Two of the first three Ken Hubbs Award winners are expected to be on hand when the 1991 overall winner is announced on June 5. Hubbs committee president Keith Hubbs said former San Bernardino HS five-sport standout Ed Ahlmeyer and ex-Colton HS football star Tony Olivarria said they will be in attendance when the award is presented for the 19th time to the top senior male athlete in the greater San Bernardino area. Ahlmeyer, who attended UC Irvine on a track scholarship, won it in 1974 and Olivarria, who played football at USC, won it the following year. The award is named for Ken Hubbs, the former Colton High School star who went on to become the 1962 National League Rookie of the Year as a second baseman with the Chicago Cubs. Two years later, Hubbs was killed in a plane crash. The award began in 1964 with four winners being named at Aquinas, San Bernardino, Pacific and Colton. . However, after Cajon and San Gorgonio high schools were opened, the award eventually expanded to its current 13-school format and only one overall was winner was named beginning in 1973. Other schools which will nominate athletes for the Hubbs award are Big Bear, Bloomington, Ike, Fohi, Redlands, Rim of the World and Yucaipa. The awards banquet will return to Rialto's Church of Latter-Day Saints after behind held in Highland last year. "We usually try to schedule it for the last week in May, but this is the only time we could get the building," said Keith Hubbs, younger brother of Ken. Keith Hubbs also said he will invite former Eisenhower HS three-sport standout Ronnie Lott of the Los Angeles Raiders. Lott won the award in 1977. "I think he's going to be in Southern California at that time," said Hubbs. Each athletic director at the 13 schools are expected to have their nominations turned into the committee by May 17. Each A D must nominate at least two athletes, but are allowed to nominate no more than four, Keith Hubbs said. Other past Hubbs Award winners include Pacific's Mark Collins (1982) and SBHS's Shelton Diggs (1973). Last year's winner was Cajon's Charles Johnson, who is attending the University of Colorado on a football scholarship. San Gorgonio principal Phil Haley has hired former baseball coach Larry Arnold, 55, as the school's next athletic director. Arnold replaces Bob Betty who is retiring at the end of the school year after 21 years on the job. "I wanted this job very much," said Arnold, the Spartans' baseball coach from 1980-84. "I've been interested in staying involved in athletics and this is one way that I can. It's a pretty time-consuming job, but I really like it." Arnold, who has taught math and has served as attendance supervisor the last four years at San Gorgonio, is a 30-year veteran with the San Bernardino City Unified School District. He has also coached and taught at San Bernardino and Cajon high schools. Pro golfer Dave Stockton and New York Giants All-Pro defensive back Mark Collins will be the first two inductees of the Pacific High School Hall of Fame, athletic director Chuck Pettersen said. Both are graduates of PHS. The Pirates are sponsoring its first Hall of Fame Golf Classic at Shandin Hills Golf Club on June 7. Deadline to enter the golf tournament is May 24. "This is the first time we've done anything like this here," said Pettersen. "It's not going to be just athletes either who are inducted. It could be a former coach or a highly regarded educator or whatever." For more information about the golf tournament, call Pettersen during school hours at 384-0434.

The meet was rescheduled for today at Apple Valley's Newton T. Bass stadium with field events starting at 2:30 p.m. and running events at 3. "The weather reports indicate it might not be much better (today)," said Apple Valley athletic director Lloyd Bcvington, who called the meet at about 2:30 on Wednesday. "If we can't have it (today), we'll try it Friday, but that's the last possible day we can have it." Bevington said he took an informal vote of league coaches before calling Wednesday's meet. The vote was 4-2 in favor of postponing the meet 24 hours, he said. Bevington said the option of moving the league meet to another site this week will not be considered because it would be too difficult logistically. "I recruited about 36 volunteers from around here to help time and officiate the meet," he said.
