Herald-Zeitung The Press “A part off you always feels like you can still play. I was no different.” — Joe Ferguson, 45-year-old former NFL quarterback recently signed by the San Antonio Texans of the CFL In the news Astros considers trade HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Astros have discussed the possibility of a trade that would allow them to acquire closer Tom Henke from the St. Louis Cardinals, according to a published report. The Houston Chronicle today quoted sources as confirming the discussions on Wednesday, but said several factors would make the deal difficult if not unlikely- Factors against the trade include a notrade clause in Henke’s contract, the difficulty of passing him through waivers and the players the Astros would have to give up to get Henke. “I’m flattered Houston would be interested, but I don’t think I would agree to waive my no-trade clause,” Henke said. "I’m from Missouri, and this is where I want to stay." Henke, 37, has hinted he might retire after this season. The Astros were hoping he would agree to the trade for the chance to finish his career on a possible playoff team. Rangers knock off A’s 5-4 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics and Texas Rangers are struggling with injuries as they try to keep from stumbling out of the wide-open race for the wild-card spot in the American League. Jeff Frye’s three-run homer led the Rangers to a 5-4 victory over the Athletics on Wednesday, but both teams were more concerned after the game with injuries. The Rangers sent Juan Gonzalez, the two-time American League home run champ, back to Texas for tests today on his left shoulder. The A’s expect Danny Tartabull, obtained last week in a trade with the Yankees, to go on the disabled list after ^aggravating a rib cage injury. Gonzalez has missed the last six games because of a small bone spur behind his shoulder. He has missed 41 games this season because of back, quadricep, hamstring and shoulder injuries. “It’s worse today than it was yesterday," Texas manager Johnny Oates said after the game. “He's probably tired of tests, but he’s just not getting better." Reynolds downs Cardinals ST. LOUIS (AP) — Houston Astros right-hander Shane Reynolds had St. Louis Cardinals remembering an old favorite. Reynolds, whose forte is control, looked a lot like former Cardinal Bob Tewksbury as he defeated St. Louis 4-2 Wednesday night. He allowed the Cardinals just two runs in six innings while striking out six and giving up no walks. Of course, Reynolds is used to having a zero in the base on balls category. Coming into the game, Reynolds had faced 472 batters and issued only 13 unintentional walks.

Herald-Zeitung photo by THOMAS GODLEY The New Braunfels All-Stars went undefeated in the Texaa State Junior League Tournament in Waco, capturing the state title and advancing to the regional tournament in Florida. Above, Chip Adams had two doubles, including a 2-RBI shot in the ninth Inning of Wednesday's 11-9 win over Bear Creek. New Braunfels All-Stars headed to national tournament in Lantana, Florida By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor WACO — It’s official. The New Braunfels Junior League All-Stars are the best in the state. The history-making feat came in dramatic fashion Wednesday night at Waco’s Senior Field as Chip Adams hit a two-mn double in the ninth inning that broke a 9-9 tie and pushed back the Bear Creek All-Stars. “Let me tell you, that was a heck of a game” said an elated NB manager Floyd Chapman. “It almost slipped away from us, but these kids were determined. They got fired up in that last inning and started telling each they could do it. They didn’t want to have to come back and play that team again tomorrow." The All-Stars next destination is Lantana, Ronda for the National Junior League Regional Tournament. The team is scheduled to leave Friday. And they will be riding a wave of momentum. The sweep through the state tournament brought their winning streak to IO games — seven of which were decided by five or more runs and three by 10-run rule endings. Bear Creek, however, wasn't about to go down easy. Behind a tall, speed-throwing right hander named Justin Ireland, the Houston-area team stayed within striking distance until late. Facing a 9-4 deficit in the sixth inning, Bear Creek loaded the bases and tallied five runs to lock the score. The runs came off two hits and seven walks in the inning. Until that point. New Braunfels appeared well on its way to the national tournament. Alter jumping out to a 3-2 lead, Cody Reimer belted a two-RBI double to extend it to 6-2 in the second inning. In the fifth, Adams smacked an RBI double to the left field wall, and Jared Fellers followed with 2-nin shot to the same spot that gave New Braunfels a 9-4 lead. Pitcher Javier Gonzales and the defense had stifled Bear Creek for five innings. The reservations in Ronda seemed a sure thing. Then things began to unravel in the sixth. Three straight walks loaded the bases, and three more walks brought in runs. Suddenly it was a 9-9 game. New Braunfels got out of the inning when Andy Schmid struck out Nathan Espinoza. NB coaches Chapman and Mike Reimer Scoring NB All-Stars 330030 02 — 11 13 3 Bear Creek 202005 OO — 9 6 5 gathered the team in the dugout for a final pep talk. "We told them to stay focused and just try to get on base," Chapman said. "We were making good contact against their pitcher so we knew it was just a matter of hanging in there" Bear Creek had a chance to end the game with two outs and runners at first and second in the seventh inning. Ireland took a fast ball to deep center field, and all eyes were on Adams who calmly guided it into his glove and brought a collective sigh of relief to the New Braunfels crowd. Neither team could muster offense in the eighth inning. Ireland's speed was still on, and Schmid was finding the strike zone with consistency. The New Braunfels defense then came through with a key double play. With two outs and a runner at first base, NB shortstop Eric Sultemeier scooped up a hard hit grounder, tossed it second baseman Andy Schmid who fired it to first baseman Ty Johnson for a double play that ended the eighth inning and charged New Braunfels with new life. In the ninth, catcher Cody Chapman led off by running out an infield grounder. Pinch hitter Cody Erben then singled with a hard shot past shortstop Mike McClung, putting runners in scoring position. The stage was set for Adams who had connected on three doubles Tuesday in a 10-5 win over San Antonio Columbia. He came through again. His line shot to left center soared into the gap, scoring Chapman and Erben and ending Ireland's night at the mound. "He dedicated that hit to his mother," said father Charlie Adams whose wife, Gay, celebrated her birthday Wednesday. The New Braunfels defense held strong as Bear Creek made a final rally in the ninth. Schmid struck out Eric Oertli before Jeremy Aucoin reached on a single. The top of the lineup was approaching when Schfnid slyly threw to first base for a pickoff that got the second out and took the life out of Bear Creek. Gabe Lucas then flew out to center field. Gonzales earned the win and notched his 17th victory with no no losses this season. "We're ready for Rorida," Chapman said. "It's just incredible what these kids have done." Aikman’s retirement hinges on Cowboys winning attitude By DENNE H. FREEMAN AP Sports Writer AUSTIN (AP) — Forget the $5 million year. Troy Aikman plays the game because he likes to win. His thirst for competition drives him like a former coach he used to have, the one with the perfect hairdo, chubby cheeks, and win-or-die attitude. But after this season the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys could walk away from the Sundays he loves. Aikman doesn’t guarantee he’ll be around forever. Or next year. “I really don’t know,” Aikman said. “There are times when I say I want to do this until they drag me off the field. There are times when I could take it or leave it. “I have physical concerns and I don’t want to get to the point where I just play for a paycheck. " Injuries might drive him from the game but he is basically too Oklahoma tough to let that happen. So what could trigger his departure from the NFL? He could never stand to play on a losing Sports briefs TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — The NCAA put Alabama’s football program on three years probation, banning it from postseason play for one year and making it forfeit 11 games in 1993 for using an ineligible player. University president Roger Sayers called the sanctions “excessive and inappropriate” and said the school would appeal. The NCAA said the football program exhibited “a distressing failure of institutional control.” 1316 NCAA said Alabama was censured for three chief reasons: —Gene Jelks obtained from boosters six impermissible deferred-payment loans totaling $24,400 during 1989 and 1990 that the NCAA said he did not pay back. —Antonio Langham was allowed to play in 11 regular season games in 1993 even though he had signed with an agent and athletic officials were aware that a potential violation of rules had occurred. team again. He had enough with a I-15 team his rookie year to know he never wants to stoop that low again. And he could never stand to play on a team that didn’t care. "If it got to the point where I felt this organization wasn’t doing what it should to remain competitive it could drive me to retire prematurely,” Aikman said. “I enjoy what I’m doing but there are other things in the world. I love the camaraderie of my teammates but I have friends outside of football. Winning is what it all comes down to." Aikman said he would have seriously considered retirement if the Cowboys had won the Super Bowl last year. “We didn’t do it so I didn’t have to make that call,” Aikman said. “Now, I don’t know what I would do if we win a third one.” Aikman has won two Super Bowl nngs with the perfectionist Johnson as his coach. Aikman still reserves judgment on Barry Switzer, who lured the quarterback to Oklahoma but ran an offense that made Aikman jump to UCLA. The Cowboys lost 38-28 to San Francisco in the NFC championship game last year with Switzer as head coach. —The school’s faculty athletics representative provided “false and misleading information” lo the NCAA in the Langham case. DALLAS (AP) — Unless Mickey Mantle has further cancer surgery, the baseball legend probably has less than a year to live. Mantle’s doctors at Baylor University Medical Center discovered several cancerous spots on the tight lung of the former New York Yankees star during a routine follow-up exam to his June 8 liver transplant. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Lenny Dykstra, the Philadelphia Phillies’ All-Star outfielder, will miss the rest of the season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery lo relieve arthritis under his right kneecap. NEW YORK (AP) — Arlen Kantarian, a lop executive at Radio City Music Hall, apparently will be hired as president of major league baseball, a job that will put him in charge of assorted business operations, The New York Times said.
