Hot corner

April 11, 1999

Quote: "Sorry for the technical difficulties, but at least it's not raining." -- Scoreboard message at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., during part of a 15-minute power failure.

It's a fact: Despite their no-name lineup, the Twins sold 7,619 season tickets for 1999, surpassing last year's 6,043. The $99 season-ticket deal, which includes an autographed Kirby Puckett bat for every pair of seats, still is available.

Who's hot: Yankees starters have allowed 16 hits in 34 1/3 innings.

Who's not: The White Sox's Jaime Navarro gave up seven runs on eight hits in 2 1/3 innings after going 4-1 in spring training.

On deck: The Tigers are starting their season on the road for the seventh straight year. Their home opener is tomorrow against the Twins.
