Not too long ago, Milwaukee Brewers manager Phil Garner needed to impress upon a young player the virtues of hustle.As his example for the young player to emulate, Garner used Milwaukee center fielder Robin Yount.Good choice."This kid hit a tapper in front and he trotted about two-thirds of the way, then slowly made it to the first base bag," said Garner."I said, 'You watch Robin Yount run to first base. He's going to the Hall of Fame and he's been around 19 years. If that [guy] can do that, then you can, too.' "Later in the game, Yount hit a similar ground ball in front of the plate and though he was thrown out, Yount ran it out as if to illustrate Garner's point.

It was another well-pitched game that went astray.With 31,488 fans coveting a victory on an ideal spring night, the Baltimore Orioles wasted another good effort by their pitching staff, losing for the fifth time in six games, 5-2, to the Milwaukee Brewers at Memorial Stadium.Jeff Robinson and his relief corps did an excellent job of restricting the scoring despite 12 Milwaukee hits until the ninth inning, when two runs scored on a peculiar play and the Brewers put the game away with three overall.

WASHINGTON - For a moment yesterday, the mystique of the presidency seemed to drop away, and the man who occupies the White House looked like nothing so much as an awe-struck baseball fan. Standing behind a lectern, George W. Bush watched a boyhood fantasy spring to life. Any fan could have dreamed up the image: Holding court in a room, surrounded by dozens of Hall of Fame players who had trekked from across the country just to visit you. Presidential perks being what they are, that's precisely what happened to Bush, as he played host to 46 baseball superstars who helped him celebrate the opening of a new season.

CHICAGO -- Almost 10 years ago, with the eyes of a nation focused upon him, Robin Yount was forced to do something completely out of character.The date was Oct. 17, 1982, and Yount had just poked an opposite-field home run to help bring Milwaukee a 6-4 victory over St. Louis in Game 5 of the 1982 World Series. Immediately after Yount's seventh-inning blast, his fourth hit of the game, the crowd of 56,562 at Milwaukee's County Stadium urged him out of the dugout for a curtain call.With all the vigor of a blindfolded man about to meet his firing squad, Yount slowly ventured up to the top step, waved for a second and headed back to the comfort of the bench.
