Hot corner

April 12, 1999

Quote: "It was great to get a ring because in Cuba they don't do that." -- Yankees pitcher Orlando Hernandez, on receiving his World Series ring.

It's a fact: Kevin Appier, who missed most of last season after shoulder surgery, has more than twice as many career pitching victories (106) as the rest of the Royals' staff.

Who's hot: The Yankees have not made an error in six games this year.

Who's not: Twins pitchers have given up 80 hits in the past five games.

On deck: Dave Burba will start the Indians' home opener this afternoon at Jacobs Field, which will be sold out for the 293rd straight game. Cleveland holds the major-league record for consecutive sellouts, which began June 12, 1995.
