Jeff Conine was traded to Philadelphia from the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, a deal that provides the Phillies with a solid right-handed bat and veteran leadership in their drive to earn a wild-card berth. The Orioles sent Conine and cash to Philadelphia for a player to be named. The deal was completed during the seventh inning of Baltimore's 5-4 win over Tampa Bay on Sunday. The trade was not announced until after the Orioles' game, and Conine found out about it when he walked off the field.

We rag baseball players so regularly that at times we feel like human pine tar. Too often we neglect to pat one on the back, to applaud the grace with which he has handled himself. I feel this way about, for example, Jeff Conine. A left fielder for the Florida Marlins, Conine, 28, until Tuesday night lacked celebrity status to such an extent that I would have felt obligated to clarify for certain readers the way his name is pronounced: CO-9.

He did something only a Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Jimmie Foxx, Stan Musial, a Reggie Jackson--to say nothing of a Red Schoendienst, Tony Perez and Johnny Callison--had done before. Won an All-Star game with a homer. It wasn't as dramatic as Williams' in 1941 when, with two out and two on and his team behind, 5-4, in the bottom of the ninth, Ted ripped it over the right-field wall for a 7-5 American League victory.

Kansas City outfielder Jeff Conine worked out and is expected to be activated today after missing the first part of the season with a strained stomach muscle. The Royals said catcher Sal Fasano, out since April 20 with an abdominal muscle strain, would be sent to Class triple-A Omaha for rehabilitation. The Royals obtained Conine from the Florida Marlins in November for minor league pitcher Blaine Mull. Conine hit .242 with 17 homers and drove in 61 runs for the Marlins last year.

Jeff Conine was so thrilled by his home run Tuesday that he pumped his fist, something he said he has done only one other time in a 12-year career. His teammates were excited too. They mobbed Conine at the plate to celebrate the biggest hit in the Florida Marlins' biggest game this season. Conine's three-run homer against Philadelphia's Kevin Millwood highlighted a five-run seventh inning, as Florida rallied to beat the fading Phillies, 5-4.

Jeff Conine took off most of the day, then took a jog around the bases. Conine hit the first pinch-hit homer of his career, a solo shot with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Florida Marlins defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, 2-1, Thursday at Miami. "I wish I could end every day off the same way," Conine said. "To hit a game-winning homer in the ninth, that's the best."

For 30 years, Washington fans have begged to get the Senators back. Now we finally have them. They're called the Orioles. If you want to know what Washington baseball was like for more than 50 of the 71 seasons that the Nats played here, just trek up the parkway to Camden Yards or turn on your cable TV. They've merely traded red-white-and-blue for orange-and-black. This spring, while watching the Orioles, I've been having deja vu all over again. The night Mike Bordick batted No.

Jay Leno's people called. So did the guy who rented him a refrigerator four years ago. So did former UCLA teammate Eric Karros. And so did radio stations from Florida to Los Angeles to his birthplace of Tacoma, Wash. It seems everybody has wanted a piece of Florida Marlin left fielder Jeff Conine since he was selected most valuable player of the All-Star game. "I must have done 50 or 60 interviews since my homer," Conine said. How does that compare to his previous media dealings?

The car Jeff Conine was driving from Los Angeles to Newport Beach on Tuesday broke down en route to his semifinal singles match in the 18-and-under division of the United States National Junior Racquetball Championships. His match was postponed for nearly 2 1/2 hours. When he finally arrived at the Newport Beach Sporting House, Conine proceeded to break down his opponent, Bobby Rodriguez of Colorado, with his powerful serves and drive shots to advance to the finals with a 15-6, 15-4 win.

There was an Elvis-like aura surrounding Hideo Nomo's entrance into the 66th All-Star game Tuesday night, but the Dodger rookie and media darling had to share the spotlight with some obscure guy from an expansion team.
