Larry Parrish called it a career 25 games early. The 36-year old Parrish, who had 15 seasons in the majors before playing in Japan, told the Hanshin Tigers he is returning to the United States for treatment of a chronic knee injury. "I was planning on retiring at the end of this year anyway," Parrish said today. Parrish, the leading home-run hitter in Japan's Central League last season with 42, leads the league this year with 28.

Former major leaguer Larry Parrish hit a home run to help the Hanshin Tigers to a 3-2 victory over the Central League's defending champion Yomiuri Giants today. Parrish played last season for the Yakult Swallows and won the league's home run title with 42. At Tokyo's Jingu Stadium, a grand slam homer by former Chicago Cub Vance Law in the fifth inning led the Chunichi Dragons to a 6-5 victory over the Swallows. It was Law's second homer this season.

During his two-month rehabilitation, Larry Parrish frequently could be found walking the fairways of Riverside, a new golf club north of Arlington. He loves the course. He likes the people. He would like to join. But he's not going to. "I told 'em, 'Hey, how can I join if I'm not going to be here to play on it?' " Parrish said the other day. With Buddy Bell back home in Cincinnati, Parrish has become the Rangers' primary trade bait.

County Administrative Officer Larry Parrish, the county's top executive for the past four years, resigned Monday to take a job with the lobbying firm that represents Orange County in Sacramento. Parrish acknowledged the frustrations of administering a government that has been strapped financially and buffeted by critics. He said he decided to leave, however, simply because "the time has come . . . for me to do some new things."

Will Larry Parrish outshine Bob Horner, whose impact on Japanese baseball showed up in a 24 percent increase in his team's attendance? Parrish, 35, who played for the Boston Red Sox last season, batted .327 and hit seven home runs in 20 exhibition games for the Yakult Swallows, but matching Horner's debut won't be easy. Horner, who also played for the Central League's Swallows, hit one homer in his first game in Japan and three in three at-bats the next day. He batted .327 with 31 homers and 73 runs batted in during his one season in Japan, in 1987.

Larry Parrish loves to see Ron Guidry and the New York Yankees come into Arlington Stadium, even if it is Billy Martin's fourth managerial debut with the Yankees. Parrish drilled three consecutive homers, two of them off Guidry, and knocked in six runs to spoil Martin's comeback and give the Texas Rangers a 7-5 victory over the Yankees Monday night. It was the Yankees' fourth straight loss.

Steve Buechele, Texas Ranger third baseman, was enjoying his first breakfast in the Dallas suburb he hopes to call his summertime home. The 23-year-old Fullerton resident had polished off a Texan-sized order of steak, eggs and wheat toast, with a cinnamon roll on the side. Now it was time to digest both newspapers--or at least the pertinent matters in each sports section. In the first paper, he came across a column about him, and read aloud: Steve Buechele is in a hard spot.
