Jack Wilson will start at shortstop for the Pittsburgh Pirates in the season opener today at Cincinnati. Wilson, who played at Thousand Oaks High and Oxnard College, batted .260 in spring training. The Pirates moved former shortstop Pat Mears to second base and optioned Warren Morris to triple-A Nashville. Acquired from the St. Louis Cardinals in a July trade, Wilson was a career .314 hitter in the minors.

Like a frisky Little Leaguer, John Wilson played and played Thursday on the Cal State Northridge baseball field. The freshman third baseman breathed in warm autumn air, teased teammates, loosened his arm and acted every bit the promising ballplayer he is. It was hard to believe that only five weeks ago, Wilson was clinging to life after his father, Jack Allen Wilson, 41, allegedly shot him through the locked front door of the family's Reseda home.

In the ballpark of his youth, Jack Wilson returned home as a rookie growing up in the major leagues. Wilson, 23, from Thousand Oaks High and Oxnard College, has found a home with the Pittsburgh Pirates, who value his defensive abilities so much that the organization jumped him from double A to the major leagues. The improbable rise of Wilson, a ninth-round draft choice out of Oxnard College in 1998, hasn't been forgotten.

Quickness got Oxnard College shortstop Jack Wilson drafted in the ninth round by the St. Louis Cardinals--his quick bat, good speed and strong arm. But nothing is quicker than his pen. Wilson signed Wednesday with Cardinals' scout Chuck Fick before the lower rounds of the draft were even completed. "My goal was to go in the top 10 rounds and that happened," said Wilson, who attended Thousand Oaks High. "I want to get out there as soon as I can."

Whenever John Wilson finds himself on a trip with the University of Kentucky baseball team, he asks for hotel stationery to write his father. A few weeks later, Wilson usually receives a reply from the California Men's Colony in San Luis Obispo, where his father, Jack, is serving 10 years for the attempted murder of his only son.

Jack Palance, the leather-faced, gravelly voiced actor who earned Academy Award nominations for "Sudden Fear" and "Shane," and who finally captured the Oscar almost 40 years later as the crusty trail boss in the 1991 comedy western "City Slickers," has died. He was 87. Palance, who had been in failing health with a number of maladies, died Friday of natural causes at the Montecito home of his daughter Holly, family members said.
