Mark Langston and Dick Schofield have been best friends for years. They take their families on vacations together and check up on each other during the season. Their personalities are so similar and they know one another so well that their wives wonder at times if they are related. Langston honestly believed that he knew everything there was to know about Schofield. Not anymore.

For those nostalgia buffs, Anaheim Stadium was the place to be Sunday. It was there that relics from the Angels' previous youth movement were on display. Devon White, the outfielder who could do it all, and Dick Schofield, the sure and steady shortstop, came up with big plays. They got key hits and played solid defense. They did so as members of the Toronto Blue Jays.

Toronto Blue Jay shortstop Dick Schofield, whose left arm was broken in a collision with the Detroit Tigers' Milt Cuyler on Wednesday night, underwent surgery Thursday and will be sidelined for the season. Cuyler, attempting to steal second in the eighth inning of the Tigers' 13-8 victory, slid into the bag and smacked Schofield's arm with his helmet. Schofield, in mid-air at the time, was spun around from the force of the blow before crashing to the ground.

In one afternoon, Dick Schofield had a career year. The Mets' shortstop, whose been hovering between light hitting and no hitting for quite some time, left his banjo at home Sunday and showed up at Shea Stadium with something more closely resembling a bass guitar. With a three-run double in the fourth inning, he matched his RBI total of the last 42 games. With a three-run homer in the eighth, he doubled it.
