The impasse between pitcher Sean Douglass and Antelope Valley High baseball Coach Ed t'Sas was not resolved Wednesday and Douglass did not practice with the team. Douglass, a 6-foot-5 right-hander projected as a second-round draft choice next month, has not practiced since Monday, when t'Sas ordered him to do 332 push-ups. Douglass is concerned that push-ups could hurt his arm, an opinion supported by pitching coaches and scouts.

Any psychologist worth his hourly fee will tell you, communication is key to resolving conflicts. Any coach worth his whistle will tell you, conditioning is key for a team to be successful down the stretch of a long season. Given those axioms, it's no wonder Sean Douglass' high school baseball career at Antelope Valley ended sadly and abruptly Thursday, only two weeks before the start of the playoffs. In Douglass' case, there was plenty of conditioning and not enough communication.

Push-ups came to shove with Sean Douglass leaving the Antelope Valley High baseball team Thursday over disagreements with Coach Ed t'Sas. Douglass, a 6-foot-5 right-handed pitcher, is one of the nation's top prospects. He attributed a string of subpar performances recently to t'Sas ordering him to do sets of push-ups on the day before games. Douglass missed practice Tuesday and Wednesday, and in his only contact with t'Sas during those days, he said the coach hung up the phone on him.

Ready, aim, fire. . . . A 30-gun salute will greet each pitch thrown Friday by Jon Garland and Sean Douglass, look-alike, sound-alike right-handers with smoking fastballs who will duel in a game at the San Fernando tournament. It's a good guess a major-league scout from each team will be in the stands with speed guns. Where else would they be? The air will be filled with more radar than a final exam at the CHP academy. Ready, aim, fire. . . .

Erika Hanson of Thousand Oaks High has made a commitment to play softball for Arizona, the defending national champion. Hanson, a left-handed first baseman, batted .374 with 15 runs batted in last season. Hanson will sign a letter of intent during the one-week early signing period starting Nov. 13. Quartz Hill pitcher Mark Madsen committed Loyola Marymount, spurning offers from Pepperdine and Long Beach State. The hard-throwing right-hander battled back spasms and saw limited action last year.

Clark Parker, a Cal State Northridge senior second baseman who had only 47 at-bats, was drafted in the 40th round by the Detroit Tigers. Parker, a transfer who started at UC Santa Barbara for three years, batted .298 this season, mostly as a pinch-hitter and designated hitter. Not drafted was Northridge outfielder Jose Miranda, who batted .407 with 25 home runs and 90 runs batted in. Although Miranda displayed great power, his lack of speed and average arm apparently kept him from being drafted.

Pacific Bell Park, home of the San Francisco Giants, will become SBC Park on Jan. 1. The Giants announced Tuesday a 24-year agreement with SBC that gives the telecommunications company the naming rights to the team's 4-year-old waterfront ballpark. "SBC played a critical role in the development of our ballpark and helped to keep Major League Baseball in San Francisco," said Larry Baer, the Giants' executive vice president and chief operating officer.
