Mets: Pitcher Bill Pulsipher, catcher Todd Hundley and outfielder Chris Jones were involved in a single-car accident early yesterday morning. The players were en route home after arriving back from Wednesday night's road doubleheader in Pittsburgh. Pulsipher, who was driving the car, hit a pole while exiting the Cross Island Parkway. No one was hurt.

Padres: Right-hander Andy Ashby is scheduled to come off the 15-day disabled list tomorrow and start that night against the Cubs.

Players association: The first charitable foundation established and operated entirely by professional athletes, the "Players Trust for Children," was announced yesterday by the Major League Baseball Players Association. Supported by contributions from 100 percent of the MLBPA membership, the organization conducts the Players Choice Awards programs and other events, and generates goodwill for the many charitable activities players undertake on behalf of children.

Reds: After announcing Wednesday that relief pitcher Mike Remlinger had been designated for assignment, Cincinnati said the left-hander remained on the roster. Reds spokesman Charles Henderson said Wednesday's announcement was in error and that Remlinger has not been designated for assignment. The Reds must open a spot by Saturday, when they plan to activate Pete Schourek off the disabled list so he can start that day against the Mets in New York.
