June 28, 1994 | Times staff writer David W. Myers catches up with former Dodgers and Angels
Some Yankee scouts had tabbed Repoz, a left-handed outfielder, as the heir to Mickey Mantle. He made his debut with New York in 1964, but his hitting proved disappointing and he was traded to Kansas City before settling with the Angels in 1967. He hit 13 home runs in '68 and 18 in 1970. He left in '72 to start a five-year stint in Japan, where he became one of that country's most feared batters. Repoz, 53, is plant manager at Fabrica International, a carpet manufacturer in Santa Ana.

You can't really blame Jeff Repoz, Tony Muser Jr. or Tim Henze if they are a little nervous when their fathers attend their high school baseball games. It's almost like having a scout watching. Except this guy will probably critique your swing, offer you a ride home, kiss your mother and stay for dinner. When these fathers talk about mechanics and execution, it has nothing to do with grease monkeys or capital punishment. As a result, these high school players were weaned on baseball.

The physician, Dr. Thomas B. Dickson Jr. of Allentown, Pa., said he expressed his opposition to blood doping, which involves transfusions of red blood cells in an attempt to increase endurance, but was ignored.

Peter Bavasi, the chief operating officer of the Cleveland Indians, sets aside an hour a day to accept phone calls from fans offering advice, criticism and, in rare instances, praise. It is part of Bavasi's grass-roots attempt to resurrect a virtually moribund franchise. Bavasi also writes a personal reply to every letter the club receives. "I told my staff that we have to start by thinking in terms of bringing in one new fan, not one million," he said.

At the far end of Home Run Park in Anaheim, beyond the snack bar, the batting cages and video games, is a shed--a broom closet at first glance. There sits the Clyde Wright Pitching School. In that tiny office--not much bigger than the outhouse from his childhood--Wright keeps his memories. There, with a thick Tennessee drawl, Wright will tell you about his life, from Jefferson City (Tenn.) to Anaheim, with a round-trip to Japan.
