Hot corner

May 25, 1998

Quote: "Walk [Mark] McGwire with nobody on, that's a legend. Jim Poole and Dusty Baker will be trivia, and McGwire will be the legend. Sorry, Dusty." -- Giants pitcher Orel Hershiser

It's a fact: Attendance was so high that the Mets ran out of children's jerseys they were giving away.

Who's hot: The Mets' Carlos Baerga, subject of trade talks involving the Orioles, had three hits,including his fourth homer, to raise his average to a season-high .280. He is hitting .355 in May.

Who's not: The Rockies' Ellis Burks struck out four times, extending his slump to 1-for-31.

On deck: Today marks the second time since 1971 the Pirates haven't played on Memorial Day. They were also off in 1995.
