Ken Phelps takes his place inside the Anaheim Stadium batting cage Saturday and waits. Coiling his 6-foot 1-inch frame, he leans heavy upon his back, left foot--leaving his right foot with little more to do than scratch at the dust. He weighs 200 pounds. His chest protrudes and his back is broad. The shirt on his back--a Seattle Mariner warmup jersey--looks small and ready to tear. He resembles the kid on the block who grew into his clothes and then some.

On April 6, 1984, Ken Phelps got a bad break. It came on the little finger of his right hand, which got in the way of a pitch thrown by Milwaukee's Jerry Augustine. Phelps couldn't have known it at the time, but that broken bone may have made him the answer to a Trivial Pursuit question. Phelps was placed on the Seattle Mariners' 15-day disabled list. His spot on the roster was filled by a rookie named Alvin Davis, who had begun the season at the Mariners' Triple-A affiliate in Salt Lake.

Dodger right-hander Orel Hershiser, who won a $1-million contract in arbitration last season, has filed for arbitration again. In 1985, Hershiser went 19-3 with a 2.03 earned-run average, then he and the Dodgers could not agree on terms of his 1986 contract. The Dodgers offered him $600,000, but he was awarded $1 million. Also filing Wednesday were pitcher Mike Moore, catcher Bob Kearney and first baseman Ken Phelps, all of the Seattle Mariners.

The father of New York Yankees designated hitter Ken Phelps is in serious condition today following a heart attack he suffered during a Yankees game against the Seattle Mariners. Len Phelps, 82, was behind home plate at the Kingdome when he collapsed Sunday afternoon. A man sitting next to Phelps pulled him into the aisle and administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation. "I noticed his face was turning red and his tongue was purple so I knew he was having a heart attack," said Sean Alderman, a ski patrolman in Mammoth Mountain, Calif.

A managerial change hasn't slowed the Seattle Mariners' strikeout pace. The Mariners fanned 48 times in their first six games under Dick Williams, who had said, "I'll give them two good swings if they give me one." Williams meant that his hitters could swing twice from the heels but would then have to choke up and think about hitting to the opposite field.

The Seattle Mariners released veteran slugger Gorman Thomas Wednesday because he wasn't getting the job done as the club's designated hitter, Manager Dick Williams said. "I'm going to go with the guys who are going well," said Williams, hired earlier this season to replace Chuck Cottier, who was fired. "Gorman is not one of them." Thomas is the third veteran released by the Mariners in the last two weeks.
