Right-hander Javier Delahoya was fairly certain that his chances of ever pitching at Dodger Stadium, site of the City Section 4-A Division finals, were wrecked when his Grant High baseball team was beaten, 11-6, by Chatsworth in the second round of the playoffs last Tuesday. A phone call may have changed all that. On Monday, Delahoya was selected by the Dodgers in the fourth round of the amateur draft, reviving his chance of fulfilling a life-long ambition. A week later, Delahoya is sky high--for two reasons.

Before each game Javier Delahoya pitches, he phones his mother, Imelda, in Sun Valley. Imelda is no baseball guru. "But she's an expert on me," said Delahoya, who pitches for the Rochester Red Wings, the Baltimore Orioles' top affiliate. When the former Grant High right-hander called home on Wednesday before the Joint Triple-A All-Star game, Imelda gave very simple advice: "Don't be nervous."

For Javier Delahoya, it was a nine-to-five kind of day. The Grant High right-hander had nine strikeouts--five of them on called third strikes--to lead the Lancers to a 5-2 Valley Pac-8 Conference victory Wednesday over visiting Monroe. "He is very businesslike and that's what we want him to be," Grant Coach Tom Lucero said of Delahoya, who yielded just four singles and four walks. "We want him to pitch with no emotion. "This was his best game of the year. He had his best control.

Grant High catcher Manny Toledo spent another Tuesday night sitting at home doing his version of crochet, figuring a stitch in time will save the Grant nine. For at least the third time this season, Toledo had to spend a few minutes restitching the webbing in his mitt after a Javier Delahoya fastball once again blew a hole in it. "He can do that," said Toledo, whose mitt was temporarily wrecked by Delahoya in the fourth inning of Tuesday's game against Poly. "This will be something like the third time I've fixed it. He does it like it's nothing."

A string-bean of a young man with gangly limbs and a furrowed brow leans back with a high leg kick, curls forward, almost assumes the fetal position, and unfolds in a twist of accelerated motion. From his right hand he hurls an object that is not immediately identifiable as it swiftly emerges from a tangle of whirling body parts. Obviously, the projectile must be a baseball, one headed wide of the strike zone. Or so the batter, a left-hander, assumes. So he lets it pass. Poor choice.
