So he received 690,438 votes, making him the American League's starting catcher in the 59th All-Star game and a subject of national ridicule because of his .217 batting average, 5 home runs and 19 runs batted in with the Oakland Athletics. So what? Steinbach had already been conditioned to tougher times in 1988. He was hit by a thrown ball on May 6 and suffered five fractures around his left eye, resulting in corrective surgery and almost a month on the disabled list.

Approximately 420 pounds of baseball player met in a collision at home plate in the bottom of the eighth inning Monday night, and it didn't look, or sound, pretty. Running from second on pinch-hitter Jeff Huson's soft one-out single to center, Todd Greene barreled into Twin catcher Terry Steinbach, who fielded Denny Hocking's strong one-hop throw and withstood Greene's impact to preserve Minnesota's 3-2 victory.

Like Dave Winfield, Jack Morris, Rick Aguilera and Paul Molitor before him, Terry Steinbach turned down more money to come home and play for the Minnesota Twins.

He turned down better offers and did not get any closer to the World Series. Such was the force that tugged at catcher Terry Steinbach to return to his home state to play for the Minnesota Twins. He had grown up and attended college in Minnesota, making his return big local news. On top of that, in 10 seasons with the Oakland Athletics, Steinbach had been to three World Series and three All-Star games. This was more than local boy does good.

The arctic climes of Candlestick Park have yet to be weathered in this World Series, but already, after two games in Oakland, one team has been left out in the cold. For the second time in as many nights Sunday, the Will Clark-Kevin Mitchell-Brett Butler San Francisco Giants were chilled by the Oakland Athletics, losing Game 2 by a 5-1 score before 49,388 at the Oakland Coliseum. In Game 1, the score was 5-0. If you sense that this World Series is on the verge of turning into the Blowout by the Bay, you're getting warm.

Monday wasn't exactly a banner day for the American League All-Star catchers in the home run hitting and skills contests, but it did nothing to lessen the moment. Starting catcher Terry Steinbach of the Oakland Athletics failed to get a single bull's-eye in the catcher's throw for accuracy contest. And backup Mickey Tettleton of the Baltimore Orioles had similar problems in the throwing contest. And he hit only one home run. But they were both smiling afterward.
