Hot corner

April 23, 1999

Quote: "It was like being in one of those beer-league softball games. The ball was coming in there with an arc." -- Travis Fryman after he and rest of Indians were frustrated by Tom Candiotti's knuckleballs in Athletics' win. It's a fact: Yesterday's Tigers-Red Sox game in Detroit took 1 hour, 49 minutes, the fastest in the major leagues since Detroit and Toronto finished in 1: 45 on the final day of last season.

Who's hot: The White Sox, whose game yesterday was postponed by rain, have won four in a row.

Who's not: The Red Sox, who fell to 8-7 with yesterday's loss, have scored just five runs in their past five games.

On deck: George Steinbrenner, Woody Allen, Henry Kissinger and Yogi Berra will be among celebrities and public figures attending a memorial service for Joe Dimaggio today at New York's St. Patrick's Cathedral.
