Most of the candidates for the Moorpark College baseball team had already been on the field for awhile on the first day of practice in the winter of 1982. They were standing around talking and playfully unloading streams of tobacco juice onto each other's shoes when they saw a figure approaching from the parking lot. From a distance, all they could make out was that whatever this thing was, it was carrying a baseball glove and had shoulder-length blond hair.

The San Francisco Giants may have jilted Brett Butler in a negotiating difference over money, but they continue to spend it almost with indifference. Free-agent relief star Dave Righetti became the latest to benefit when he agreed to leave the New York Yankees and return to his Bay Area roots for a $10-million guarantee over four years.

The paths of Dan Petry, Jack Lazorko and Eric King crossed again Friday night in Anaheim Stadium. Strange how the often winding and bumpy roads of professional baseball careers can lead three men to one busy intersection, where each has a hand--if not an arm--in the outcome of a game. Example: the pitchers of influence in Friday night's game between the Angels and Detroit Tigers. Jack Lazorko started for the Angels, Dan Petry for the Tigers. Last Aug.

Former Royal High and Moorpark College pitcher Eric King will start for the Detroit Tigers today in a spring training game against the Boston Red Sox in Winter Haven, Fla. King's performance in the game may decide his future with the major league club. King is among 29 players in the Tigers' camp battling for 24 available spots on the opening-day roster.

Seems as if people always want Eric King to pitch less--and Eric King always wants to pitch more. The Detroit Tigers cast him as a reliever for much of his three seasons with them. King didn't like that and said so--until he was traded to the Chicago White Sox for Kenny Williams during spring training in 1989. Now the right-hander the Tigers wanted in the bullpen has an 8-1 record as a starter and leads the American League with a 2.18 earned-run average.
