Kinko’s to sponsor
MDA benefit run
Sports Writer
Students and faculty of Texas A&M, as well as residents of Bryan-Col-
ilege Station, will have a chance to lace up their old running shoes July 27
[and benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association at the same time.
All you have to do is pay a buck and run two kilometers.
The 2K run is being sponsored by Kinko’s Printing Center with all pro
ceeds going to MDA says Rusty Higham, race coordinator.
“This was planned as about a 1.5 mile fun run-type thing,” Higham says.
|“It’s a promotion for Kinko’s and a donation-seeker, with all money going
Istraight to MDA.”
Higham says the first 100 individuals entering the race will receive a
[free Kinko’s T-shirt after paying the $ 1 entry fee.
“I think it has been decided that the top three male and female finishers
[will receive trophies,” Higham says. “Miscellaneous gift certificates will be
[given out in a random drawing of names, including Kinko’s T-shirts.”
Higham said the course is set up and he is waiting for the final approval
|of the cities.
The race will start at Kinko’s, located at 201 College Main St., at 8 a.m.
[and will proceed down College Main toward Bryan. Racers will then turn
jright on Woodson St., then make another right onto Oaklawn St., until they
[hit Foch St. Runners then will turn right on Foch St. and return to College
[Main again and head back to Kinko’s.
Higham says the looping course is designed to take place on mostly resi
dential streets and the B-CS police forces will decide if it is necessary for
them to help monitor the course.
“The course is so condensed,” Higham says, “and mostly on residential
streets that I think Kinko’s employees and volunteers can handle it unless
the police feel otherwise.” •
Higham whipped out a calculator and gave his rough estimate of the
finishing time for the first male racer as 7 minutes, 45 seconds. He says the
[first female runner will probably break the tape at just over 10 minutes.
“I figure if we get a crowd of 100 people,” Higham says. “Then, even
[with walkers, we should be all finished in half an hour.
“This run is more of a fun-type thing and was laid out so that families
[could participate. Anyone, no matter what their physical conditioning, can
[run this (race) with no problems.”
And the best thing of all, Higham says, is that it’s all for a good cause.

Baseball Troubles
56th All-Star game quickly becoming a no-show game
Associated Press
MINNEAPOLIS — Baseball’s
56th annual All-Star Game also
was becoming a game of no-
shows Monday as managers for
both leagues announced their
starting lineups.
The absentees for Tuesday
night’s game included the start
ing catchers and top winning
pitchers for both leagues, the
most notable being Joaquin An-
dujar of the St. Louis Cardinals.
Andujar, who leads the NL
with 15 victories, refused the se
lection of Manager Dick Williams
of San Diego after he got the im
pression that he would not be
“I’d love for Joaquin Andujar
to be here,” Williams said at a
news conference. “Unfortu
nately, he decided not to come.
That’s past history. He declined
to go. We didn’t tell him he
couldn’t come and, at that
point, I hadn’t named a starting
Williams’ starting pitcher will
be one of his own, Padres right
hander LaMarr Hoyt, 12-4, who
has won 10 in a row. Sparky An
derson of Detroit, the American
League’s manager, also chose one
of his own pitchers to start, Ti
gers right-hander Jack Morris,
In addition to Andujar, Wil
liams had to replace starting
catcher Gary Carter of the New
York Mets and reserve outfilder
Pedro Guerrero of the Los An
geles Dodgers. Carter was re
placed on the roster by Terry
Kennedy of the Padres, who Wil
liams said would start ahead of
Tony Pena of Pittsburgh. Guer
rero was replaced by outfielder
Glenn Wilson of Philadelphia,
and right-hander Ron Darling of
the Mets replaced Andujar.
Carter reinjured a knee in a
game Saturday at Houston and
Guerrero has been suffering
from back spasms.
The American League no-
show was starting catcher Lance
Parrish of Detroit, who was re
placed on the roster by Rich Ged-
man of Boston. Carlton Fisk of
the Chicago White Sox, already
chosen as a reserve, will start the
game. Parrish is out with a back
Anderson already had lost the
services of New York’s Ron
Guidry, who leads the AL with 12
victories. Guidry pitched Sunday
and, for fhat reason, asked not to
be selected.
At the news conference, Wil
liams said his leadoff hitter would
be Tony Gwynn of San Diego, in
left field, followed by Tommy
Herr of St. Louis at second base,
Steve Garvey of San Diego at first
base, Dale Murphy of Atlanta in
centerfleld, Darryl Strawberry of
New York in right field, Graig
Nettles of San Diego at third base,
Kennedy at catcher, Ozzie Smith
of St. Louis at shortstop and Hoyt
on the mound.
The American League lineup
had Rickey Henderson of New
York leading off and playing cen-
terfield, followed by Lou Whi
taker of Detroit at second,
George Brett of Kansas City at
third, Eddie Murray of Baltimore
at first, Cal Ripken Jr. of Balti
more at shortstop, Dave Winfield
of New York in right field, Jim
Rice of Boston in left field, Fisk
catching and Morris pitching.
Andujar, bitter already about
not being voted the National
League’s Cy Young winner in
1984 when he went 20-14, now is
15-4. One of his losses came Fri
day night against Hoyt and San
Diego, and that loss apparently
was what convinced Andujar he
wouldn’t start the All-Star Game.
' Williams, however, said he
didn’t talk to Andujar about the
All-Star Game, “nor did I make
any attempt to. He was doing
most of the talking there, and I
was just answering questions.”
Major leaguers threatening to call strike two on owners
Associated Press
CHICAGO — The Major
League Baseball Players Associa
tion voted Monday to go on strike
Aug. 6 if no settlement is reached
in their dispute with team owners
over a new collective bargaining
The Executive Board of the
Players association met for nearly
four hours and according to act
ing Executive Director Don Fehr,
reviewed the status of negotia
tions and results of the union’s
examination of management’s
“The Board decided that if no
agreement has been reached by
Tuesday, Aug. 6, the players will
strike effective with games of that
date,” Fehr said.
In 1981, major league players
struck for 50 days beginning in
mid-June, forcing cancellation of
712 games.
Asked why the players had
chosen that date, Fehr would not
'‘The (Executive) Board (of the Major League Baseball
Players Association) decided that if no agreement has
been reached by Tuesday, Aug. 6, the players will strike
effective with games of that d&tef’ | J: V|1 ' |-
— Don Fehr, MLB PA Executive Director. ; ;
go into specifics.
“It’s the date we were most
comfortable with, the date by
which we hope to have an
agreement, the date on balance
that we thought gave us the best
chance to get an agreement in the
fastest possible team,” he said.
“It’s a little over three weeks
• from today, more than enough
time to reach an agreement if the
owners have any interest in doing
Fehr said the Aug. 6 date did
not have unanimous support
from the executive board.
“One player rep opposed the
specific date chosen,” he said.
“He was in favor of a later date.”
Fehr said that there was some
consideration given to boycotting
the All-Star Game scheduled for
Tuesday night in Minneapolis.
“The players strongly consid
ered not playing,” he said. “It’s
not a players’ game, not a fans’
game, it is a game that goes to the
owners.” The TV revenue that
flows from that game, Fehr said,
is distributed primarily to the
clubs, with more than $20 million
to the owners compared to just
over $2 million to the players.
“It’s a game the fans enjoy and
want to see played. We will deal
with our own collective bargain
ing problems notwithstanding,”
Fehr said.
He added that he has had no
indication that management is in
terested in reaching a settlement
on the collective bargaining
agreement, which expired last
Dec. 31.
“They want to force the players
put, ‘sit on them’ until the players
knuckle under,” he said.
In 1981, the players also set a
strike date but maneuvering in
volving the National Labor Rela
tions Board delayed the actual
walkout some two weeks. Man
agement had a $50 million insur
ance policy with Lloyds of Lon
don against a strike and collected
when that walkout occurred.
There is no insurance policy in
effect this time.
The next bargaining session is
set for Thursday in New York.
