On the plane flight to the West Coast, Rick Sutcliffe listened to an old tape, one that he has kept since his first start as a Dodger in 1979. He put on the headset and listened to Dodger broadcaster Vin Scully calling the play-by-play of his first success as a rookie. Fifteen seasons later, Sutcliffe, former Dodger, NL rookie of the year and Cy Young Award winner, held the Dodgers scoreless for 7 2/3 innings as the St. Louis Cardinals scored a 6-0 victory before 36,689 at Dodger Stadium.

Chicago Cub pitcher Rick Sutcliffe, a notorious practical joker, last week found himself on the other end of the gag. Friends and teammates designed and paid $7,000 for a billboard showing a high school yearbook picture of Sutcliffe wearing shoulder-length hair. Alongside the picture was an invitation to call his home phone for game tickets. "They'll pay for this," Sutcliffe said. "I've got some ideas, but I don't think I should reveal them right now."

Cubs pitcher Rick Sutcliffe is heading back to Chicago for tests on an inflamed right shoulder, which may put him out of action for his scheduled start in the third game of the regular season next week. The right-hander was slated to pitch Tuesday's exhibition game against the San Francisco Giants but was sidelined when he was unable to do much more than lob the ball during warm-ups. General Manager Jim Frey said Sutcliffe probably will be placed on the disabled list.

Rick Sutcliffe raises hell, be it in the heat of competition or the spirit of camaraderie. Baltimore Manager John Oates wants him to be the Orioles' Jack Morris. Sutcliffe is just as intense a leader, and a ringleader as well. At his fiery best, Sutcliffe once raced out of his clubhouse to join a bench-clearing brawl, forgetting that he was in his underwear, wearing shower shoes and sporting an ice bag on his shoulder.
