ON THE WEEKEND WATCH:
ON DECK -- There's baseball talk in the air as we work up to Monday's season-opener with the Orioles and White Sox (2 p.m., Channel 2). Tonight, for example, ABC's "Primetime Live" has a scheduled interview with Boston Red Sox pitcher Roger Clemens, the highest paid player in the bigs, who also is among the more petulant, given his behavior with the umpires during last fall's American League Championship Series. The Orioles' final pre-season game, against the Yankees, is also on cable's ESPN tonight (at 7:30). Birds broadcaster Channel 2 offers its annual pre-season assessment/pep rally, "Memories and Magic," at 7 p.m. Sunday. And later that evening (at 9, Channel 11), CBS is screening the splendid "Field of Dreams," with Kevin Costner as the Iowa farmer who builds a ball yard in his corn field because a whispered voice promises, "If you build it, he will come."
CAMEO COMIC -- Caustic comedian Don Rickles' attempt at a series of his own some years back was a failure -- do you remember "C.P.O. Sharkey?" -- but he certainly has been busy over the years in guest shots on other shows. (Media Monitor remembers him, especially, as a thief on "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and as Maxwell Smart's suspicious friend on "Get Smart".) Rickles is at it again on Friday's "Hunter" (9 p.m., Channel 2) as a dry cleaner who is also involved in laundering ill-gotten cash.
