'That incident has caused more controversy involving me :han anything in my career. I didn't try to be a bully," he insists. The star, Most Valuable Player of 1973, confronts Harrelson on the field tonight for the first time since last October's fistic explosion in Shea Stadium. Rose has been the target of verbal abuse--the worst of his 12-year career--during recent games in Los Angeles, S a n Francisco and Chicago. After a game last week against the Dodgers in which he was pelted with a variety of litter, the Cincinnati captain said: "For the first time in my career playing baseball wasn' 1 fun."

The Reds make their irst appearance in New York next week. "I might just play centerfield," he quipped. His reception in Los Angeles ast week may have been a factor in his O-for-20 slump--the longest hitless slump of his career. His batting average has dropped 90 points in the past month. . "It's getting to me." he said. "I was playing scared out there." Once warmly greeted in vis- ting parks, the fan falling-out apparently stems from his infamous slide into Harrelson during the National League playoffs.
