Baaron Pittenger, secretary general of the United States Olympic Committee, said Saturday the urine samples that apparently revealed the use of a banned substance by swimmer Angel Myers may be sent to another laboratory for confirmation. But Pittenger said he believes the initial test, conducted by Dr. Don Catlin at the UCLA analytical laboratory, was accurate. Myers qualified for the U.S. Olympic team in five events during the U.S. trials last month at Austin, Tex.

With Chili Davis on the disabled list because of a strained left hamstring, the Angels on Friday turned the designated hitting duties over to Greg Myers for the first game of their 10-game trip. Manager Marcel Lachemann said the job would probably be shared by a number of players. "We'll probably bounce [the designated hitter's spot] around depending on the matchups," Lachemann said. The last time Davis was sidelined because of injury, Angel designated hitters went a combined one for nine (.

Angel Myers, who hopes to compete for as many as five medals in the Olympic Games at Seoul next month, learned early last week that she had tested positive for a banned substance in drug tests conducted at the U.S. Swimming Long Course National Championships in Austin, Tex., which also served as the Olympic trials.

Greg Myers had been in more platoons than a career infantryman, but his chance to be the everyday starting catcher was finally at hand. For the first time since he made it to the major leagues in 1987, the left-handed-hitting catcher was going to be in the lineup no matter who was pitching. But six days before opening night, Myers fouled a ball off his right foot during an exhibition game and broke his big toe.

Angel Myers' removal from the U.S. Olympic swimming team, after she had tested positive for steroid use, was upheld by a three-member arbitration panel Friday. "I didn't expect it to turn out this way," said Myers, who claimed that the drug tests mistakenly identified her birth-control prescription as evidence of steroid use. The arbitrators' decision followed a hearing that ended early Friday. The deadline was 8 a.m., PDT, for U.S.

The USOC was on the right side for a change in banning Angel Myers from competing for the United States in the Seoul Games. It took integrity on the part of the USOC to disqualify Myers, a U.S. record-holder. Myers knew the list of banned substances. She paid the price. The other athletes who tested clean rightfully belong on the team. ALBERT SCHOENFIELD Rancho Palos Verdes

The courts and sports governing bodies (e.g. the NCAA and the U.S. Olympic Committee) are beginning to take a major role in determining who will participate in athletic events. Of recent vintage, there is the Stars & Stripes-New Zealand sailing controversy, Richard Dent of the Chicago Bears contesting his 30-day suspension, swimmer Angel Myers being denied a chance to compete in the Olympics and Texas A&M (and others) being placed on probation. We are fast approaching the point when having a "good" judge is more important than having a good team.

Angel Myers, dropped from the U.S. Olympic swim team after testing positive for steroid use, was ordered suspended from competition through 1989, according to a decision announced by the U.S. Swimming board of review. The three-member board, meeting to decide a penalty against the swimmer after her failure to have the test findings overturned in appeal, also invalidated Myers' records and recalled the medals she won during the U.S.

Catcher Greg Myers played Tuesday for the first time since Aug. 9 and started for the first time since Aug. 5, when he suffered an injured right hand while applying a tag in Kansas City. His recovery was well-timed, because a sore left shin kept Ron Tingley from playing. Tingley was hit on the leg by a pitch during the fourth inning Monday but stayed in the game, which lasted a painful 3 hours and 45 minutes. X-rays Tuesday found no broken bones, but his leg was heavily taped.

Angel Myers was disqualified from the U.S. Olympic swim team Sunday, when she lost an appeal after earlier testing positive for a steroid at the U.S. Swimming Long Course National Championships at Austin, Tex., the meet that also served as the Olympic qualifying meet. The U.S. Olympic Committee Board of Review, meeting in Colorado Springs, Colo., Saturday and Sunday, stood by its finding of a week ago Sunday when it told Myers she had tested positive for a drug.
