Dodger infielder Eddie Williams gets out the syringe, fills it, lifts up his shirt, jabs the needle into his stomach and empties the syringe. A diabetic, Williams does it every morning, every afternoon, every night. "Look at my stomach," Williams says. "People look and think that's a roll of fat. That's not fat. That's callous."

Angel pitcher Shad Williams became a free agent Wednesday after having his contract sent to triple-A Vancouver, the Angels announced. Williams had the right to request to become a free agent since it was the second time he had been taken off the 40-man roster. He pitched one inning in relief last season. In 1996, he was 0-2 with an 8.89 earned-run average in 13 games with the Angels.

Eddie Williams has spent the last six years playing in three countries and six organizations looking for a place to call home. It took one swing of Williams' bat with two outs in the ninth inning Saturday night to end the search. Williams, who played too well in the minors for the Dodgers to ignore any longer, lifted the Dodgers to a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Expos with a pinch-hit RBI single in front of a crowd of 47,597 at Dodger Stadium.

Life wasn't supposed to be this way. Not for Eddie Williams. And certainly not for Shawn Abner. These were first-round draft picks by the New York Mets, considered superstars before the age of 18. Loads of money was invested. Stardom was predicted. Why not, after all? Williams was picked fourth in all the land, just behind Tim Belcher of the Dodgers, Kurt Stillwell of the Kansas City Royals and Jeff Kunkel of the Texas Rangers. Abner was the No.
