Cloude forgets some valuable cargo

October 04, 1997|By Don Markus

Ken Cloude, the Seattle Mariners' 22-year-old right-hander from Dundalk, had the biggest scare of his short major-league career yesterday. It had nothing to do with pitching.

Returning on the team's charter flight from Seattle, Cloude left the seven tickets he had either purchased or acquired from teammates for various family members to the three games in his hometown on the plane.

"I had fallen asleep when we took off and I didn't wake up until we touched down," he said. "I had left them in the magazine pocket. When I got to the hotel room, I started going crazy. I didn't want anything to happen to my parents' tickets."

A club official contacted the airline and the tickets were located at Newark International Airport. They were returned on a flight to BWI and Cloude's parents picked them up there.
