The teacher is gone now, but the lessons endure. On cool Arizona mornings during spring training, and on warm California afternoons each summer, Darin Erstad and Tim Salmon practice outfield drills handed down by Joe DiMaggio. Erstad runs toward line drive after line drive, mastering the quickest route to the ball. Salmon gauges high fly after high fly, keeping the descending ball in front of him so he can charge into a powerful throw.

Don Massengale, 69, a professional golfer whose career highlight was beating Arnold Palmer by one shot in the 1966 Bing Crosby National Pro-Am at Pebble Beach, died Tuesday of a heart attack in Conroe, Texas, the PGA Tour said. Massengale played on the tour from 1960 to 1970 and had his best year in 1966, when he also won the Canadian Open and finished a career-best 27th on the money list.

Scott Lewis, who almost got into Thursday night's game in relief, will start against the Brewers tonight at Anaheim Stadium. He replaces Chuck Finley, who is still hampered by soreness in his left big toe. Manager Buck Rodgers had also considered starting Scott Bailes tonight, but Bailes hasn't started in the major leagues since 1989 and Lewis started 11 games for the Angels last season. He was 2-5 as a starter and 3-5 overall.

He won't be Manager Marcel Lachemann's first option when the Angels need a left-handed pinch-hitter but pitcher Chuck Finley had two singles in three at-bats Friday as the Angels pounded out 18 hits in a 9-5 exhibition victory over the San Diego Padres in Peoria, Ariz. The left-hander fared pretty well on the mound too, giving up three hits--but three earned runs--in six innings. And on the basepaths? Well, Finley won't be pinch-running any time soon.

Angel center fielder Chad Curtis, bristling at accusations of those who call him selfish or uncoachable, vented his frustration with those who continue to criticize. Curtis, who scored two runs and made a face-first catch against the center field fence in the Angels' 4-3 victory over the Texas Rangers, said it's unfair that Angel batting coach Rod Carew called him "uncoachable." "He (Carew) doesn't even try to coach me," Curtis said. "He hasn't said anything to me for three months.

Jim Edmonds couldn't wait. This was going to be his year. He figured he had nothing left to prove in triple A, having batted .315 last season for Vancouver. There was no doubt in his mind he could do the same in the big leagues, predicting that one day he could win a batting title. "I planned all winter on being be at least the fourth outfielder," Edmonds said before the Angels' 9-2 loss Monday to the Colorado Rockies at Tucson. "I figured I finally was going to be in the big leagues."

The Angels submitted a contract proposal Friday to free-agent starter Scott Sanderson but will have to wait until next week before knowing whether they will have his services. The Angels, according to a source close to the negotiations, offered a triple-A contract that will guarantee him approximately $700,000 if he makes their opening-day roster. Sanderson is seeking a higher guarantee, along with incentives that would allow him to earn nearly $2 million. Sanderson, 12-11 with a 4.

Hoping lightning won't strike them twice, the Angels today will travel from New York to Baltimore by bus. The last time they did it, one of two buses carrying the team veered off the road at 1:47 a.m. EDT May 21 and crashed through a grove of trees along the New Jersey Turnpike in Deptford Township, N.J. Many of the 19 passengers were bruised and the most seriously injured, Manager Buck Rodgers, has been sidelined since then. He plans to return Friday.
