season to decide whether to become replacement players But the players union now says anyone who plays in exhibition games beginning in March will be considered a strikebreaker You really dont know what to pitching prospect Tyrone Nar cisse said If you sign a minor league contract you have to play where they say They Astros told us no one would be considered a replacement until the regular season The news elevated the uneasiness in the Astros minor league club house If they refuse to play in exhibition games they will violate their contracts If they play they are going against the union It puts us in a bad Narcisse said Im just trying to put it all on the sidelines and just get ready All that stuff is uncontrolable for me But I can control what I do on the Pitcher Billy Hall has made his decision Im not going to Hall said They said we wouldnt be con sidered replacements until the regular season so its more or less manda tory that youve got to do what they Pitcher Scott Elarton the Astros No 1 pick in last Junes draft will not be used as a replacement player But he had expected to pitch in the exhi bitions I never really thought pitching in exhibition games would make any Elarton said 1 guess Ill have to talk to some people about Pitching hopeful Jose Vargas plans to play This is the first I heard about he exhibition Vargas said But Im going to be ready to pitch and if 1 get he chance to play Im going to take General manager Bob Watson said the Astros are prepared to enforce College mens Top 25 The top 26 teams In The AP college basketball poll with firstplace votes

Inojs 1 Cojfcjfj a 1 Texas hitting coach takes no I nonsense approach to game j ARLINGTON Texas AP Rudy Jaramillo takes his batting practice more seriously than most That explains how he found found himself with a deadlock on the opposing manager last summer his right hand reaching into the strangers mouth My mindset at the time I guess was that I was trying to rip his face Jaramillo said with a smile Meet the Texas Rangers new hitting instructor one who raises the nonon sense approach to a new level Per haps he did overreact last year when Bellingham manager Mike Goff failed to inform him of a change in the batting practice schedule But those hitting minutes always have been precious to Jaramillo whether it was the 10 min utes he got to talk hitting with Ted Williams as a Rangers prospect in 1973 or the daily minutes he spent with Col orados rookie league hitters in Bend last summer In baseball one year you can be the hitting instructor for Houston as the Astros break records for home runs extrabase hits and baiting average The next you can find yourself catch ing a rookie league paycheck in Ore gon and so when the BelUngham man ager blows you off when you ask j where your batting practice minutes J have gone it can be faceripping time I I apologized to him but it was just i something that hit me the wrong said Jaramillo Im sure it will happen J There is a sizable segment of Rangers fans that once the veteran I players return probably is hoping to i see Jaramillo wrestling his pupils to the ground ripping a few faces to improve a few attitudes Jaramillo was a Rangers minor league manager and hitting instructor from 198389 It was during his time with Texas that he helped develop the skills of teenage Juan Gonzalez and Pudge Rodriguez But Jaramillo isnt on Johnny Gates staff just so he can keep those two in line Youre not going to hire Rudy Jaramillo so he can babysit a guy who hits the ball 500 said the Rangers Sandy Johnson But the boundaries are set Those players know Rudy They know hes not afraid lo get in somebodys 7
