Sabo makes move to right

June 14, 1994|By Tom Keegan

The Orioles' Chris Sabo made an impressive outfield debut in left at Fenway Park over the weekend, and made his right-field debut at Camden Yards last night.

Sabo, becoming a fixture in the No. 2 spot in the batting order, said his back is in good shape.

"I'm running as good as I have all year," he said.

The Orioles' right-field wall isn't the Green Monster, but the scoreboard stands 25 feet high.

"It's not an easy one to play for the simple reason that it's different than most," said Mark McLemore, who moved from the infield to right field last season.

Sabo did not have to contend with the wall last night, and caught two fly balls without incident. At the plate, he was 1-for-4, boosting his average to .235.
