Ron Kittle filed for free agency yesterday, becoming the third Baltimore Orioles player to file this week. But on the day he filed, it was not clear how free a free agent Kittle really is.The Orioles hold an option on Kittle's contract for the 1991 season. According to his contract, the team has until Dec. 20 to decide whether to invite him to return. If he comes back, Kittle's salary will be $600,000. A buyout of Kittle's contract would cost the Orioles $100,000.That's one interpretation.

I DON'T THINK Barry Bonds is a racist. I think he's an idiot. I think he's very likely a steroid cheat. I think he has a martyr complex. And I'm sure he dislikes a whole lot of white people, but he's not a racist - and that opinion has nothing to do with the ridiculous new-age illogic that you can't be a racist unless you're a member of the dominant ethnic group in your society. To be a racist, you have to arbitrarily dislike or disadvantage members of different cultural or ethnic groups because of their race or culture.

For months, the Baltimore Orioles have been saying they may wait until near the Dec. 15 deadline before deciding whether to pick up their option on first baseman-designated hitter Ron Kittle.The Orioles' position hasn't changed, but Kittle's turned into something slightly less confusing than nuclear fusion Thursday, when he added his name to the list of major-league players seeking free agency.The move raised a couple of questions, including this elementary one: Does Kittle, or any baseball player, have the right to declare himself free when he really isn't?

Seldom-used Ron Kittle took his case to Orioles general manager Roland Hemond yesterday. Nothing was resolved, but it appears the club is now leaning toward picking up the option year on Kittle's contract.Kittle, 32, said he was told the matter would be decided shortly, and he's certain to be a topic of discussion tomorrow at TC season-ending meeting among manager Frank Robinson, his coaches and front-office personnel.The decision rests entirely with the Orioles, who have until Dec. 20 to accept Kittle's option year, valued at $550,000 before incentives.

The Orioles were surprised yesterday when Ron Kittle filed for free agency, but his agent said the veteran first baseman-designated hitter was merely trying to protect his rights in the event the club does not pick up his option year by Dec. 15.The agent, Jim Bronner, said today that he and Kittle recognize the next move belongs to the club, but were concerned by the implications of having to learn in mid-December that his option would not be renewed.Specifically,...

It was hardly an upset when the Orioles revealed Ron Kittle didn't fit into their plans. But, given today's market and the veteran's relatively modest $600,000 salary, it was mildly surprising they didn't pick up the option for 1991 for trading purposes.The signing of Dwight Evans was not the only reason Kittle wasn't renewed, but it definitely played a role in the decision. The bottom line was that general manager Roland Hemond couldn't find a team interested in trading for the righthanded hitter, and the Orioles weren't willing to gamble that his value would increase before the start of the season.

NEW YORK -- Ron Kittle, the Orioles' invisible man, said yesterday he plans to discuss his future with general manager Roland Hemond before the end of the season. Slowly but surely, his puzzling situation is coming to a head.Kittle, 32, did not start for the 10th straight game last night as the Orioles lost to New York, 4-2. Manager Frank Robinson said Kittle suffered a recurrence of his groin injury in his last start at Toronto Sept. 15, but Kittle refused to acknowledge that was the case.

The Baltimore Orioles chose not to exercise their option on Ron Kittle's contract yesterday, thereby freeing the right-handed power hitter to seek a job elsewhere in baseball.Kittle, who acts as his own agent, must contact the Major League Players Association to become a free agent."With the addition of Dwight Evans, we wouldn't be able to give Kittle the same opportunities he had," said general manager Roland Hemond. "Doing this is basically like trading Kittle for Evans."In the spring, Frank [Robinson, manager]

At some point this season, manager Ron Kittle of the Schaumburg Flyers will walk to the mound to pull his starting pitcher. He'll look to the bullpen and bring in ... well, he'll bring in whichever reliever the fans tell him to bring in. In a promotion reminiscent of an old Bill Veeck stunt, the independent Northern League baseball team said last month that it will occasionally interrupt games to seek fans' advice on pinch hitters, relief pitchers and...

Chesapeake's boys' lacrosse team may be the new kid on the block, but it has already learned the merits of using bulletin board material.The 12th-ranked Cougars, motivated by a perceived slight by Broadneck players in a local newspaper, ended the Bruins' nine-game winning streak, 11-10, yesterday and earned the Anne Arundel County championship at Annapolis High.The Cougars (12-3), winners of their seventh straight, trailed, 3-2, after one period of a game that was tied eight times, including 5-5 at the half and 9-9 entering the final period.

PHILADELPHIA -- It was supposed to be Rasheed Wallace's homecoming, but he bolted to the NBA and the Bullets. The night before, North Carolina watched Jerry Stackhouse, its other sophomore star of last year, strut his stuff for the 76ers.What's left of the Tar Heels was treated rudely yesterday, when No. 7 Villanova posted a monumental 76-56 rout at the Spectrum before 18,524, the largest crowd to watch a basketball game in Pennsylvania."If we had Rasheed and Jerry . . . and Billy Cunningham and Bobby Jones, it wouldn't have made much difference," Tar Heels coach Dean Smith said.

If you can't beat him, sign him.That evidently was the Orioles' thinking when they added outfielder Dwight Evans for one year. Evans, 39, was their leading tormentor among active players -- and a living nightmare for their bullpen ace, Gregg Olson."

They leave scars, Kerry Kittles and Lawrence Moten, nasty painful scars.Kittles and Moten are plotting, they must be, plotting as they stand face-to-face, plotting when they're going to twist some poor defender into knots and leave another caught in a pick. It's their way, Kittles and Moten.Kittles, the guard from Villanova, and Moten, the guard from Syracuse, weaving, slipping through holes, popping up at the unlikeliest places, so much alike, so hard to tell apart.
