HOUSTON - Don Baylor has no desire to watch a replay of the freak mishap in which he broke his right thigh bone while catching the ceremonial first pitch before the season opener in Angel Stadium on March 31. But the Angels hitting coach has replayed the gruesome scene in his mind dozens of times, from lunging for Vladimir Guerrero's low-and-away pitch, to twisting his right ankle and knee, and to having his leg buckle, bend and collapse underneath him...

In the late 1970s, when the Angels dipped into the free-agent market, the baseball Establishment nodded wisely at the names of Joe Rudi and Don Baylor. What widened their eyes was the selection of Bobby Grich. "What do they want him in there for?" someone wanted to know.

Pirate Manager Chuck Tanner was comparing Kevin McReynolds' leaping catch in the third inning of Thursday's game to memorable World Series catches made by Willie Mays in 1954 and Joe Rudi in 1972.
