Edward G. "Buddy" LeRoux, 77, a former part-owner of the Boston Red Sox and a real estate baron, died Monday in a New Hampshire hospital of what the Boston Globe reported as natural causes. LeRoux started as a trainer for the Red Sox from 1966 to 1974. He served as the team's vice president from 1978 to 1979, then became an owner as part of a group that included Haywood Sullivan and Jean Yawkey, widow of longtime team owner Tom Yawkey. He was forced to sell his share of the team after a failed attempt to wrest control from Sullivan and Yawkey.

The Oakland Athletics are deciding what to do with pitcher Eric Show, who arrived at training camp Friday with both hands bandaged because of cuts on his hands and fingers. Show, who missed practice in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Tuesday and didn't tell the A's he had returned to his home in San Diego, apparently didn't give team officials what they believed was a valid explanation of the injuries. The cuts required stitches at a Phoenix-area hospital.
