OKLAHOMA CITY -- The 1985 world championship ring from Steve Balboni's days with the Kansas City Royals was left behind at his Lee's Summit, Mo., home. Too flashy for daily wear, said Balboni, and too dear to be hidden away in the Oklahoma City hotel room that has become his home for the summer. It is a part of the past.The present has taken an unpleasant turn down memory lane for Balboni, whose big-league resume shows 181 home runs, including a Royals record 36 in that championship season.

The Orioles today traded third baseman Craig Worthington and minor-league pitcher Tom Martin to the San Diego Padres for two minor leaguers, pitcher Jim Lewis and outfielder Steve Martin.Worthington, who was named Rookie Player of the Year by The Sporting News after a 1989 performance that included 15 home runs and 70 RBI, had slipped out of favor after a lackluster performance in 1990. He opened 1991 on the major league roster, but spent most of the season with the Class AAA Rochester Red Wings rehabilitating a hamstring strain.

Baltimore Orioles manager John Oates said last night that he would be comfortable entering next season with Chris Hoiles and Jeff Tackett as his two catchers.But Oates would like to acquire another catcher to work at the Class AAA level in case those two don't work out."We don't have a lot of depth in our organization," he said. "We may have to look for another guy."The situation was created late Wednesday night when the Orioles traded Bob Melvin to the Kansas City Royals for pitcher Storm Davis, leaving Hoiles the top receiver entering spring training.
