No-shows Anger Giles

July 11, 1995|By Buster Olney

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Philadelphia Phillies' Lenny Dykstra and Darren Daulton were no-shows at yesterday's workout. Dykstra contacted the NL office on Sunday night and said he would be detained by personal matters, but nobody seemed to know the whereabouts of Daulton.

NL manager Felipe Alou said he understood that both would be in uniform for tonight's game.

"It bothers me, the fact that this is All-Star Game time and they were supposed to be present," said Phillies president Bill Giles. "The only players not present are my players. It's embarrassing to me personally and the organization, and I don't like it."
