And Rose’s first steps — nearly 4,200 big-league bits ago — were taken with a collection of ragamuf fins called the Geneva Reds, who fin ished in the muck of the New York- Pennslvania League in 1960. “The vital votes of California are still beyond the reach of Sen. John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts at the Democratic National Convention- ,’’cautioned the Geneva Times in early July of 1960. A week before, Pete Rose made his professional baseball debut and The Times was just as guarded: “Rose is an aggressive and eager bal lplayer at second base ... He adds life to the infield.” While the Everly Brothers were scoring on the kids’ car radios with “Cathy’s Clown,” Rose was gaped at like a circus oddity. Get this: He ac tually ran — no, make that sprinted — to first base after a walk. Pretty soon he chased a Cuban kid named Tony Perez off second base and over to third and eventually into the out field. “No, I wouldn’t have guessed he’d have made it,” said Norm follow, the 30-year sports editor of what is now The Finger Lakes Times. “They called him ‘Charlie Hustle. ’ but Charlie Hotdog was more like it around here. He wasn’t a bad hitter, but he couldn’t catch. You never know. That club had three major- leaguers — Rose, Perez and Art Shamsky. Who would have thought a team like that would go 54-75?” You never know. The fellow who led the league in hitting that year was the immortal Pablo Mitchell, at .348 for Erie. Rose, who would set the big-league record with the most 2()()-hit sea sons, had but 15 hits in his first 64 at- bats (.234), but finished at .277 with 89 hits in 85 games for Geneva. The renowned Marv Chalmers w'as the club’s lone .300 hitter. You never know. At the end of the ’60 season, The Geneva Times noted where the play ers were headed for the off-season. “Pete Rose,” The Times reported, “will be looking for a job as a sport ing goods salesman.” Pete Rose’s Geneva is pretty much the same today. The baseball field still stands. But now there’s a differ ent scoreboard, a new roof over the grandstand, the Cubs are the tenants and the name is McDonough Park. Bob Halaska, Rose’s teammate and housemate that season, said Rose had it all figured out. “He signed a weird contract,” re called Halaska, now a businessman in Las Cross, Wis. “It was called a contingency and nobody wanted to sign them. If he made it in the ‘A’ ball, he got a certain amount. If he made it in ‘AA’ he got a certain amount. And if he didn’t make it, he didn’t get anything. “I told him, ‘Why’d you sign that? They’ll screw you down the line somehow.’ “And he said. ‘They can’t screw me. I’m going to make the majors.’ I knew he would because he had that something about him. He didn’t have the skills, but he just kept run ning and running.” Scott having ‘Giant’ year as Astro pitcher Associated Press HOUSTON — With a chance to win 20 games, Houston right hander Mike Scott is enjoying the best season of his six-year major league career. “This year I came to spring train ing worried about making the team,” Scott said after picking up his 16th win of the season Monday, a 4-2 de cision over the San Francisco Giants. Scott combined with two relievers to hold San Francisco to seven hits. Scott, whose 16-7 record is the best of his career by six w ins, w'as 5- 11 last season. Scott added a forkball in the off-season and credits it with his success. “I had a bad year last year but that one pitch made all the difference,” Scott said. “I threw good two years ago but this is by far the most consis tent I’ve ever been. Plus I’ve been healthy all year and it’s been a lot more fun.” Scott pitched seven innings, giv ing up two runs, before Frank Di- Pino and Dave Smith finished. Smith recorded his 22nd save of the sea- Phil Garner sparked the Houston offense with three hits w'hile driving in one run, as Houston won its 10th game in 12. “In this stretch we’ve played real well,” Garner said. “1 definitely think this is the best we’ve played this season.” Losing pitcher Atlee Hammaker, 4-11 and 0-4 against Houston this season, gave up all four runs in 4 1/3 innings. Houston took a 1-0 lead in the first on walks to Jim Pankovits and Jose Gruz and an RBI single by Glenn Davis.

Giants rookie Matt Nokes Rangers 3, A’s 1 OAKLAND, Calif. — Waynt Tolleson tripled and doubled scored twice on singles by Don Slaught as the Texas Rangers ended a six-game losing streak Monday night by beating the Oakland A’sl- 1. Tolleson doubled with oneoutin the eighth inning off A’s reliever Steve Ontiveros, 1-2, went to third on a wild pitch, and scored to break a 1-1 tie when Slaught singled lo right field. George Wright added an RBI single later in the inning. The A’s, in losing their sixth straight game, had only five hits in seven innings off Texas starter Jeff Russell, 2-5, and none off reliever Greg Harris, who got his ninth save by pitching the final two innings. Jose Canseco of the A’s hit his first major-league home run, a 425-foot blast into the center-field bleachers, in the third for the game’s first run. Canseco, a 21-year-old outfielder, totaled 36 homers and drove in 12/ runs in 118 minor league games this season, playing at both the Class AA and AAA levels. He joined the As on their recent road trip The Rangers tied the score in the sixth on Tolleson’s triple and an RBI single by Slaught. Tim Birtsas, Oakland’s starting pitcher, allowed only three hits in 5 1-3 innings. Don Sutton was sched uled to start, but he was excused be cause of the illness of his father-in- law in Southern California. UTEP trackster dies during road workouts Associated Press LL PASO — A University of Texas-El Paso freshman was struck and killed by a pickup truck during a cross-country track team practice session Saturday, university officials said. Lori Fitzgerald, an 18-year-old high school valedictorian and track star from Denver, was killed in stantly at 8:15 a.m. Saturday, police said. The accident occurred during a practice session of UTEP men’s and women’s cross-country teams, uni versity officials said. “As Lori’s coach, and being re sponsible for this beautiful young person attending our university, I am shocked and do not understand why this had to happen,” said Gary Mazziotd, head coach for the teams. “I hope and pray that Lori’s parents and friends have the strength to en dure this loss.” Fitzgerald was attending UTEP on an academic scholarship, univer sity officials said. She was valedicto rian of her graduating class at Smo- key Hills High School in Denver this year, they said. She was also an outstanding high school athlete who placed second in Colorado state cross-country compe tition during her senior year. Police reports said Fitzgerald was running east, against the flow of tra ffic, when she swerved into the road way and was hit by a westbound pickup truck. Sgt. A1 Barunda said no charges were filed against the driver, a 17 year-old El Paso man. “We at the university are shocked and terribly distressed,” said Cords, UTEP athletic director. “Our hearts and our prayers go out for Lori and to her family and friends."
