The teenage banana inspector didn't know how to inspect bananas, but give him a baseball and he'd fire it by batters. So Juan Marichal was hired by the United Fruit Co. to play for its team. One day, he beat a Dominican Air Force squad 1-0. The next day, a lieutenant showed up at his door. His days at United Fruit were over. He was a step closer to becoming the only Dominican in the Hall of Fame.

If his new book “Showtime” accomplishes anything, Jeff Pearlman said, he hopes that it will give Jack McKinney proper credit for his contribution to basketball. McKinney had devised the high-tempo offense that had 6-foot-9-inch Magic Johnson as its flashy playmaker. But 19 games into his tenure as coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, McKinney suffered severe head injuries after toppling over the front of his bicycle while taking a spin on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. He remained away from the team, recovering while the Lakers captured the championship that season.

I find it so hard to believe that any kid who liked baseball in the '60s or early '70s would have liked both the hated Giants and Dodgers at the same time. I think J.A. Adande ("No Last Licks at 'Stick for Him" Oct. 1) must have been a wimp in school as we had fights over the Dodgers and Giants in school. You didn't like both unless you were sick. To this day, Juan Marichal and Tito Fuentes could go fly a kite. I still hate them. RALPH MEDINA Newport Beach

On a Sunday afternoon at San Francisco's Candlestick Park, Dodger catcher John Roseboro was hit by Giant pitcher Juan Marichal. No, not hit by Marichal's fastball or curve. He was hit with his bat. On the head. The incident touched off a wild fracas, but when it was over the only one shedding blood was Roseboro, from a two-inch gash Marichal's bat had opened. It's probably still the ugliest incident in the 41-year history of West Coast major league baseball. The aftermath lasted for weeks.

He calls himself the Macho Man, and he arrived at a New York press conference wearing a sequined silver jacket, along with sparkling silver ankle boots over a black body suit and, according to Wallace Matthews of Newsday, enough gold around around his neck to start a New York branch of Fort Knox. He's Hector Camacho, the WBC lightweight champion, and he said: "My life is like a movie. I drive my Corvette up on the sidewalk, I race at 100 m.p.h. What do you want. I'm the Macho Man."

John Roseboro had finished working with minor leaguers at Bakersfield Monday night when he heard some news that quickened his pulse. There had been a fight at Dodger Stadium. It involved a Dodger catcher and an opposing hitter. "I got home and turned on the TV, all of the news stations, but I couldn't see any highlights," Roseboro said of the fight between the Dodgers' Rick Dempsey and Philadelphia's Lenny Dykstra. "I picked up the newspaper the next day but I couldn't get any details.
