Ozzie Canseco, the twin brother of Jose Canseco, has left the Louisville Redbirds of the American Assn. The parent club, the St. Louis Cardinals, placed Canseco on the disqualified list, which will keep him from playing for any other team except St. Louis and could leave the door open for his return. He was hitting .240 at Louisville with 13 homers and 33 RBIs in 44 games with 154 at-bats. Canseco appeared in six games with St.

He looks like his brother Jose--more than a little up close, and so much so at a distance that if the two traded jerseys the crowd never would know. The faces are almost the same. So are the hard, sculpted bodies. Ozzie Canseco walks like Jose walks, and talks like Jose talks, and jerks his head shoulder-to-shoulder to loosen the cords in his neck the same way Jose does.

Ozzie Canseco, the twin of Oakland slugger Jose Canseco, has been called up from the Athletics' AA team to play alongside his brother. Huntsville Stars Manager Jeff Newman told Canseco Tuesday night that Oakland Manager Tony La Russa wanted him to join the American League West leaders. Canseco, 26, got word of the promotion following his 19th home run of the season for the Southern League team, a club record for career homers.

Oakland Athletic superstar Jose Canseco hasn't let his brother, Ozzie, join the major leagues without family protection. Jose cautioned his 26-year-old twin to watch out for the treacherous press, according to San Francisco Chronicle sportswriter Michael Robertson, who said he heard some four-letter advice about reporters in the A's locker room. Jose added, "If we didn't feed 'em, they wouldn't have anything to write about."

Shortstop Ozzie Smith of the St. Louis Cardinals led all vote-getters for the second straight year, collecting 2,106,757 votes to become the National League's starting shortstop for Tuesday's All-Star game at Cincinnati. Smith will start at shortstop for the sixth straight season. He is the first player to repeat as the top vote-getter since Rod Carew of Minnesota did it three consecutive years, 1977-79.

After being sidelined by injuries and surgery for the past 18 months, Oakland's Steve Karsay gave up a homer to the first batter he faced. And he couldn't have cared less. The only thing that mattered to the Athletics' right-hander was being back out on the mound again, rather than just anticipating the moment. "It was very exciting. Being out 18 months, seeing people pitch and waiting on the side is tough," said Karsay, who has not pitched in a regular-season game since April 1994.

Pitching for the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday was Michael Mimbs. Pitching for the Texas Rangers was Mark Mimbs--Michael's identical twin brother. Never before in baseball had twins pitched against each other. Mark wound up the winning pitcher and Michael was the loser in Texas' 6-5 victory, but they didn't care. Strikingly similar in the ways they pitch, walk and talk--they even paw at the rubber with the same motion--the 27-year-old left-handers had somewhat similar results.
