If you're weary of hearing about major league baseball's usual miseries such as the pending strike, drug problems, salaries, ticket prices and the designated hitter, spend a few minutes with Rob Deer. Deer, a Canyon High School graduate now with the San Francisco Giants, is a 24-year-old who maintains an outlook on his sport of someone half his age. Deer's smile as he popped out of the visitor's dugout before Wednesday's Dodgers-Giants game at Dodger Stadium had "rookie" written all over it.

The newest Angel is something of a Hell's Angel--Rob Deer, who signed a minor league contract and worked out with the team Sunday, gets his kicks by riding Harley-Davidson motorcycles with his buddies on the weekends. It's not the kind of hobby his new employers will likely embrace, but it did lead to an interesting job offer last week.

The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired outfielder Rob Deer from the San Francisco Giants for minor league pitchers Dean Freeland and Eric Pilkington, the American League team announced Wednesday. A rookie last season, Deer batted .185 with 8 home runs and 20 runs batted in in 78 games. Deer, 25, is native of Orange. He will be assigned to the Brewers' Vancouver farm club.

He is a walking encyclopedia of unusual statistics, a symbol of the Detroit Tigers, one of the most unusual pennant contenders ever. "It's just a blessing that we have a chance to win a division title," right fielder Rob Deer was saying in Chicago the other night. "If we were in last place I probably would have jumped off a bridge by now." Deer hit a three-run homer Wednesday night at Comiskey Park, ending an 0-for-19 drought, merely his latest.

The Milwaukee Brewers, scoring one run in the ninth inning and three in the 12th Monday night, defeated the Angels, 10-7, to improve a record that is almost impossible to improve. Near perfect at 17-1, the Brewers lost leads of 5-0 and 6-4 before rallying for a 7-7 tie off Donnie Moore in the ninth, then winning it at the expense of Chuck Finley in the 12th, when Manager Gene Mauch employed some strange strategy.

Rob Deer played only part of the game Saturday, but he played a key role. Deer entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning, but made two dazzling catches in right field and drove in the tying runs with a two-run single in the seventh as the Milwaukee Brewers rallied for a 7-6 victory over the Blue Jays at Toronto. "I never lost confidence in my defense," Deer said. "I've been more concerned with my hitting."

Rob Deer will long remember his three-run homer on Easter as the great equalizer, for reasons beyond the obvious. Not only did it give the Milwaukee Brewers a 4-4 tie with Texas in the bottom of the ninth inning of a game Milwaukee incredibly came back to win, but the blast and ensuing celebration in County Stadium clearly made up for all those years Deer spent laboring in the minor leagues for an organization he thought didn't want him.
