CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs, who had been searching for a president and a manager, hired a general manager yesterday.But not just any general manager. In a stunning move, they hired Larry Himes, who was fired 14 months ago from the same post with the White Sox. The Cubs made room by pushing Jim Frey into a powerless senior vice presidency.The club had spent a month hunting in vain for a successor to outgoing president Don Grenesko. But with critical baseball decisions for 1992 waiting to be made, the executives on the search team decided they needed to find a baseball man quickly -- and they decided Frey wasn't the one.The 51-year-old Himes, who officially will be called the executive vice president for baseball operations, will command the search for a successor to fired manager Jim Essian.

Francisco "Paco" Lobo wears out tuxedos the way marathoners do running shoes. The longtime Tio Pepe maitre d' keeps three tuxes in his wardrobe at any given time, and every year, at least two succumb to the rigors of dry cleaning. Lobo himself has held up far better. At 74, he is trim and lively and able to charm hungry, impatient crowds for 10 and 12 hours a day, five days a week, in the elegant Mount Vernon basement restaurant. His hair has gone silver, but the size of his tux jacket, 44 regular, hasn't budged since he started at Tio's more than 40 years ago — no small feat given the occupational hazards of a place that dishes up off-the-menu, twice-fried potatoes known as pommes soufflés before diners even have a chance to order.

As Jim Frey shuffles toward the lectern, he faces the curious gaze of hundreds of Parkville High School students. His own eyes no longer open fully and close by themselves, and he slurs some of his words. If strangers pass the 22-year-old man on the street, they assume he's a drunk.Instead he's the victim of one.Seven years ago, Mr. Frey was on a motorboat that was rammed by the drunken pilot of another craft. He was left with a brain injury that changed his life."When I came out of my coma, the doctor thought I was blind at first," he tells his audience.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- It was more than just another day at the golf course for David "Moose" Brown, who handled the first-round pressures of the U.S. Open with exceptional emotional control for an untested challenger.Brown's score of 78 was far from an embarrassment. A 25-year-old from Baltimore's Mount St. Joseph's High School who is an assistant pro at the Country Club of York, he shot 39 on the first and second nines, which added up to 8-over par.Followed every step of the way by his parents, Hugh and Doree, and his brother and two sisters, the Browns made it something of a joyfulfamily outing.

DETROIT -- Glenn Davis returned to the Baltimore Orioles' lineup last night after missing five games because of back spasms."He came in and said he wanted to try it," said manager John Oates. "He's fine so he's in there."Davis was hitting .321 in his past nine games before leaving the Sept. 20 game in Cleveland with mid-back pain.Oates was reserving judgment on whether Davis would return to the batting order today."We'll wait to decide on tomorrow's first baseman, depending on how healthy Glenn is," he said.

CLEVELAND -- Remember the horror stories everybody used to tell about the defensive shortcomings of rookie third baseman Leo Gomez? Remember the error-ridden entrance he made last year, when he made enough misplays in his first two major-league games to last a month? Well, forget all that.Gomez has worked long and hard to fill the hole in his game, and the hard work is paying off. He entered last night's series opener against the Cleveland Indians with just one error in his past 70 games.
