February 07, 1996|From Staff and Wire Reports


Pitchers Pete Janicki and Joe Rosselli and catcher Chris Turner have agreed to contract terms for this season with the Angels. Terms were not revealed. Janicki (El Dorado High School) pitched last season for triple-A Vancouver and Class A Lake Elsinore. Turner caught most of the season for Vancouver. Rosselli was claimed off waivers from San Francisco.

Dennis Eckersley, the Oakland Athletics' lifetime saves leader, has asked the team to trade him to St. Louis, where he would be reunited with former A's manager Tony La Russa. Sandy Alderson, Oakland's general manager, said he's trying to accommodate Eckersley, 41, but that a deal still had to be worked out with the Cardinals.

The baseball players union, in response to management's bargaining proposal of Nov. 15, will make a counter-proposal during a negotiating session in New York today.

Second baseman Eric Young and the Colorado Rockies agreed to a $1.05-million, one-year contract.


Services have been set for Ben Brown, the Cal State Fullerton assistant track coach and former Olympian who was killed in an automobile accident Thursday.

A viewing will be from 5 to 8 p.m. today at Draper Mortuary, 811 N. Mountain Ave., in Ontario. A wake will be held Sunday and the funeral Monday in his hometown of San Francisco.

Brown had been an assistant track coach at Fullerton for the last eight years. An endowment fund for a scholarship for sprinters has been established in Brown's name at the school. Contributions should be directed to Ben Brown Memorial Fund, c/o Titan Athletic Foundation, 2600 E. Nutwood Ave., Suite 850, Fullerton, 92634.
