In 1977, Darrell Jackson realized his childhood dream of pitching major league baseball, an achievement that brought a jet-set lifestyle and a professional high. Six years later, he crash-landed in Los Angeles, hooked on crack. Now, five years sober, Jackson pitches drug and alcohol rehabilitation to adolescents all over Southern California, a job that has given him an entirely new kind of happiness, he said. "I've made some dumb decisions in my life," said Jackson, who lives in Fullerton.

July 5, 1994 | Times staff writer David W. Myers catches up with former Dodgers and Angels
Outfielder Landreaux made his debut with the Angels in 1977 but was sent to Minnesota two years later in a trade that brought Rod Carew to Anaheim. He was traded to the Dodgers in 1981 and helped them to three divisional titles before retiring in 1987. Landreaux, 39, said he battled alcohol and drug problems after he quit playing. But he got sober a few years ago and is now a family and drug-abuse counselor at Bellwood Health Center in Bellflower.

SAN FRANCISCO -- When the playoff-bound Tampa Bay Buccaneers decided to get some rest, Shaun Hill and the San Francisco 49ers kept working for another late-season win. Hill passed for 123 yards and three touchdowns to remain unbeaten as an NFL starter, and the Buccaneers' Michael Clayton landed out of bounds with a catch on a two-point conversion attempt with 1:20 left in San Francisco's 21-19 victory over Tampa Bay's reserves.

St. Louis Ram Coach Mike Martz returned to the practice field Friday, ready to put the attention back on the game instead of his heart condition. Martz, 54, sat out two days while undergoing tests for a bacterial infection of a heart valve. He said earlier this week that team doctors believe he has endocarditis. "I appreciate everybody's concern and I'm not trying to minimize this, I'm really not, but everything's fine," Martz said. "Now it's time to focus on this team and winning a game.

Matt Hasselbeck has the Seattle offense on a roll. And the Seahawks turned in a great defensive performance too. "We're rolling, and we're not done yet," Shaun Alexander said. "This is getting exciting for us." Hasselbeck threw for 328 yards and three touchdowns, while Alexander rushed for 127 yards and another touchdown, leading Seattle to a 34-7 victory Sunday over the reeling Cleveland Browns.

Bobby Engram understands why his younger teammates get most of the publicity. Sometimes, though, the old man of the Seattle receiving corps can't be ignored. Engram had an 83-yard punt return for a touchdown and caught a 34-yard scoring pass to help the Seahawks to a 35-14 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The 30-year-old Engram is something of a father figure to younger receivers Darrell Jackson, 24, and Koren Robinson, 23. "It's kind of their show," Engram said.

Seattle is 2-0 for the first time in five years, thanks to a smothering defensive performance on a sweltering Sunday. The Arizona Cardinals had turnovers on their first four possessions and Matt Hasselbeck threw touchdown passes of 55 and 66 yards to Darrell Jackson in the Seahawks' 38-0 romp. "It's the building blocks for a good season," Coach Mike Holmgren said. The temperature was 98 degrees at kickoff and 102 at halftime, but it was the Cardinals who collapsed in the heat.
