in the tournament, which also in
cludes teams from Trinity, TCU and
the University of Texas.
“It ought to be a pretty tough
tournament,” Kent said. “Texas has
an outstanding team, probably one
of the top seven in the country, but I
think we’ll have an outstanding tour
nament judging by our workouts
and our previous matches this fall.”
The Westwood Invitational is an
open-format tournament, instead of

and 5 players a chance to knock off
some of the favorites,” Kent said.

capturing the singles title of the Sun
Bowl Invitational. Marcel Vos and

teams in the tournament, so hope
fully we’ll continue to be successful.”

fall season. Both the men’s and
women’s teams will play an exhibi

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Former Cy
Young Award winner LaMarr Hoyt
pleaded guilty Thursday to two mis
demeanor drug charges and agreed
to serve at least 60 days in a federal
Hoyt, a member of the San Diego
Padres, told U.S. Magistrate Roger
McKee that he understood the plea
bargain reached by federal prosecu
tors and his attorney. It includes a
fine of up to $5,000, five years of
probation, submission to regular
drug testing and forfeiture of his
1986 Porsche 944 Turbo sports car,
valued at $33,000.
“Basically for the next five years,
his physical condition is going to be
monitored by the U.S. probation de
partment and if he gets involved
with drugs again he can be brought
back before Magistrate McKee, and
he can be sent back to jail for a year,”
assistant U.S. Attorney Pat Swan
Hoyt, 31, pleaded guilty to misde
meanor charges of possessing Va
lium, a tranquilizer, and propoxy
phene, a painkiller.
The plea agreement avoided a
criminal indictment on felony
charges and penalties of up to 15
years in prison and a $250,000 fine
for possession of the propoxyphene.
Illegal possession of Valium carries a
maximum five-year prison term and
a $250,000 fine.
If McKee approves the agreement
at a sentencing hearing Dec. 16, he
will order the 60-day prison term on
the Valium possession count and a
one-year suspended sentence and
five years probation on the propoxy
Hoyt’s arrest on Oct. 28 at the San
Ysidro Port of Entry was his third
this year on drug-related charges.
Hoyt was detained after a U.S.
Customs Service inspector spotted a
bulge in his clothing as Hoyt waited
to enter the United States from Mex
ico in the pedestrian line at the bor
der crossing. A body search revealed
two bags containing nearly 500 pills.
On Feb. 10, Hoyt was detained at
the border crossing and paid a $620
fine after agents confiscated Valium
and a small amount of marijuana.
Eight days later Hoyt was stopped by
San Diego police, who found mari
juana and an illegal switchblade
knife in his car. Hoyt pleaded guilty
to a public nuisance charge and was
placed on probation for three years.
Four days after spring training
began, Hoyt entered a drug rehabili
tation center in Minnesota and re
joined the Padres in April. He
posted an 8-1 1 record last season.
Hoyt remains on the Padres’ 40-
man roster and is under contract
through the 1989 season. In the
past, the team has traded players
with recurring drug problems.
