Back in Medford, N.J., Ryan Luzinski says people are used to the resemblance between him and his father, former major league baseball player Greg Luzinski. Ryan Luzinski is stocky; a middle linebacker in football and a catcher in baseball. He and his dad are the same height and weight--6 feet 1, 215 pounds. They both bat right-handed. And besides all of that, they look almost exactly alike.

Despite warnings from other scouting directors that he will be difficult to sign, Ryan Luzinski said Wednesday that he is "ecstatic" about being selected by the Dodgers as their first pick in Monday's draft.

Gene Mauch was perfectly content to stay home in Palm Springs, play 18 holes of golf each day, and relax with a couple of cocktails in the evening. Life was good, and after stepping down as Angel manager after the 1987 season, Mauch had absolutely no desire to put on another uniform. Then, Bob Boone called. Boone had become manager of the Kansas City Royals, and desperately needed a bench coach. He wanted Mauch, and kept calling until Mauch finally relented, joining the Royals on Jan. 13.
