BOWIE - In Little Rock, Ark., Tuesday night, the Tulsa Drillers and Arkansas Travelers battled through 15 innings of a Texas League game that ended at 12:30 a.m. CDT. Bedtime was going to brief for those two teams' representatives for the Double-A All-Star Game the next evening at Prince George's Stadium. But nobody begged out. "It was a five-hour game and we had a 6 o'clock [a.m.] flight that stopped in Cincinnati," said Arkansas pitcher Bud Smith, who threw seven innings in the marathon and could not pitch in last night's game.

They were three aspirants hoping to live an incredible dream: the major leagues. But in the starkness of reality, they were prohibitive long shots. The biblical reference to many being called but few chosen was applicable.A left-handed pitcher from Norristown, Pa., a second baseman out of St. Thomas, Pa., and a catcher whose home was in Baltimore. They were the same age, 17, hoping to achieve a baseball identity, fueled by similar ambitions toward infinite goals that required a demanding apprenticeship.

There was a time when Dennis Wiseman would not have been happy with a 3-4 pitching record.After all, when you go 11-2 your senior year in high school and finish with a school career-record 17 wins, then set the career wins record (31) for your college, 3-4 just doesn't do it. Under most circumstances, that is.But Wiseman's 3-4 record with the struggling Travelers Arkansas Class AA team is deceiving, and is enhanced by his 2.60 ERA. The Travelers, a St. Louis Cardinals minor-league affiliate, are 24-34 in the Texas League, and the former Old Mill right-hander has been one of the team's bright spots.
