Rene Lachemann, third base coach for the Oakland Athletics the last six years, signed a three-year contract Friday to manage the expansion Florida Marlins. Lachemann, 47, has been fired twice from managing jobs--by the Seattle Mariners in 1983 and the Milwaukee Brewers in 1984. He had a combined record of 207-274. He was a coach for the Boston Red for two years before joining the Athletics. "I've been fortunate to be in five playoffs and four World Series," he said.

For many young baseball fans, one of the biggest thrills in the world is to bring home an actual ball from a big league game. You should've seen the mass of humanity I had to wriggle out of as a lad just to emerge with a foul ball back at Three Rivers Stadium in the '80s. But I still cherish it to this day. So imagine how nice it must have been for a young Philadelphia Phillies fan to simply have a ball handed to him at Citizens Bank Park last week. No wrestling, no struggle, nothing to endure whatsoever.

Rene Lachemann, Oakland Athletic third base coach, has agreed to become the Florida Marlins' first manager, according to the Miami Herald. The Marlins declined to comment. Lachemann, 47, will sign a three-year deal for about $1 million, unidentified National League sources told the Herald. The deal probably will be announced today. The Marlins interviewed eight candidates last month, then trimmed their list to Lachemann, Pittsburgh coach Bill Virdon and Atlanta third base coach Jimy Williams.

Rene Lachemann, the only manager the expansion Florida Marlins have ever had, was fired Sunday. Lachemann, 51, became the first major league manager to be fired this season. Third-base coach Cookie Rojas, manager of the Angels in 1988, was chosen by General Manager Dave Dombrowski as the interim skipper. "When you don't win and you don't execute, the manager goes. It's as simple as that," Lachemann said. "That's part of the territory, and that's exactly what's happened here."

In his 21 years as a general manager with the Baltimore Orioles, Angels and Milwaukee Brewers, Harry Dalton has employed a dozen managers, one of them twice. He made only one change--from Hank Bauer to Earl Weaver--in five successful seasons with the Orioles, but has since played musical managers, employing 10 in 16 years with the Angels and Brewers. His list of managerial hirings in that time. ANGELS 1972--Del Rice. 1973--Bobby Winkles. 1974--Winkles and Dick Williams. 1975--Williams.

While the idea of playing for a new manager is just starting to sink in, perhaps no Angel player may be more affected than Eduardo Perez. He has gone from being the Angels' everyday first baseman to platooning with Jim Edmonds, and for the first time he can remember, was removed Friday for a pinch-hitter by Marcel Lachemann. "I may not be too crazy about it," Perez said, "but I can't take it hard. You can't be selfish in this game. My dad (Tony Perez) taught me that. "(Lachemann is) the manager.

The temporary scoreboard at Anaheim Stadium displayed video clips of Marcel Lachemann's introductory news conference as the Angels' new manager before their game Thursday night. The fans watched. They listened. The videotape ended, and they sat in stony silence. They made it quite clear that it's going to take time to warm up to the idea. Certainly, they haven't been telephoning the Angel switchboard these past few days to exchange pleasantries.

Oakland Athletics' right-hander Ron Darling has few illusions about his abilities at this stage of his career, after nine seasons in the major leagues and elbow surgery two years ago. "You put Juan Guzman's name in the computer, it rings bells," Darling said of his pitching opponent Saturday in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series, "and you put my name in, it spits me out. But luckily, baseball is not played by a computer."

For the second night in a row, a decision on a home run was reversed by umpires--this time in favor of the hitter. In the sixth inning of the Atlanta Braves' 8-3 victory over the Florida Marlins at Miami, Ryan Klesko's 15th home run gave the Braves a 6-1 lead. The ball hit the screen on the left-field foul pole and was ruled foul by third-base umpire Terry Tata and home-plate umpire Eric Gregg. But after Atlanta Manager Bobby Cox protested, the umpires met and reversed the decision.

Ben Lefebvre may be 72, but he is still a swinger. "Benny is a swinger all right," Verbum Dei baseball Coach Pete Morado said. "He's a guru of hitting. Anytime you play his kids, you know they aren't going to be standing at the plate, watching. They're going to attack. They'll be up there swinging." Guru may be a perfect description for Lefebvre, a sun-tanned picture of health whose supple fingers caress a baseball bat as if it were a magic wand.
