The ashes of Cleveland Indian pitcher Steve Olin were buried high in the Tualatin Mountains on Sunday as about 300 people jammed the small chapel of Skyline Funeral Home. Olin was remembered by family, friends and teammates as a loving husband and father with an infectious sense of humor. His ashes were interred with mementos of his life.

I read the article about the tragic death of former Dodgers pitcher Tim Crews ["Losing His Memory," April 22] and, while saddened by a family's loss of their husband and father, their playing the blame game against the Dodgers and baseball in general is absurd. If they want to place blame, then they should place the blame accordingly, and that blame goes to Tim Crews solely. Boating recklessly while legally drunk is not the Dodgers' fault nor anyone else's fault. Perhaps the Crews family will come to terms with this reality in the near future and get on with their lives.

Bert Blyleven is out, and Fernando Valenzuela is in. Blyleven, 13 victories short of 300, was cut by the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday, while Valenzuela secured a spot on the Baltimore Orioles' opening-day roster. After getting the bad news from Twin Manager Tom Kelly, Blyleven said: "I still, deep down, think that I can pitch at the major league level. But if I can't pitch for the Minnesota Twins, then I don't want to pitch for anybody. "I've heard people say the Florida Marlins are interested.

By the time Perry Brigmond arrived at Tim Crews' house for dinner Monday night, Crews and teammates Steve Olin and Bob Ojeda were already fishing out on Little Lake Nellie. Dinner was at 6 p.m., but Brigmond didn't arrive until about 7:15. He ate quickly and then, along with Fernando Montes, the Cleveland Indians' strength trainer, drove Crews' truck down to the bank of the lake to try to spot the boat.

They came from all over the state and points beyond, including Kirk Gibson, Sparky Anderson, Don Fehr and Gene Michael. The Dodgers sent two busloads, carrying almost their entire team. All of the Cleveland Indians were there. They came to grieve collectively, but each with a different intensity. Some hoped Wednesday night's memorial service would put an end to the emotion they have felt over the tragic death of Tim Crews and Steve Olin.

Prior to sweeping the three-game series with Seattle, the Indians had lost eight of nine. Steve Davis, 1-0, allowed two runs, one earned, and five hits in five innings. The lefthander, who made eight relief appearances in an earlier stint with Cleveland this season, was recalled on Wednesday from Class AAA Colorado Springs.
