Houston driver AJ. Foyt to return to Indy speedway
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — When A.J. Foyt thinks about fun, he thinks about racing, and that’s why he’s driving again.
When the Houston race driver announced his retirement in May 1991 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where he had started a record 35 consecutive Indianapolis 500s, Foyt says a lot of the fun went out of his life.
Now, at 60 years old, Foyt plans to start having a good time again, beginning with Saturday’s Brickyard 500 on the same historic 2 1/2-mile oval on which he became the first four-time Indy 500 winner.
“I’ll tell you, I just want to start racing a little bit more, get back in shape, take off about 20 pounds,” he added. “It’s something I enjoy, and what’s life all about if you can’t have fun? This (retirement) deal hasn’t been much fun for A.J. Foyt.”
Foyt’s Hall of Fame resume includes 63 other
Indy-car wins, seven NASCAR triumphs, including
He came out of retirement a year ago to run in the inaugural Brickyard 400 and was the slowest of the 40 qualifiers in the 43-car field that included three provisional starters based on series points. His car ran out of gas early while running near the lead, and Foyt wound up 3.0th, four laps behind but running at the end of the 400-mile race.
On Tuesday, Foyt confirmed that he will try again in this Saturday’s Winston Cup race at the speedway, and that may be only the beginning.
“I’m looking forward to this,” Foyt said. “As this race got closer and closer, I got itchier and itchier. I just think when I stepped down out of Indy cars, I stepped down a little early, and I still want to race. If I didn’t think I could do anything, I wouldn’t be here.”
NB All-Stars steam rolling through Waco
By THOMAS GODLEY
WACO — The New Braunfels All-Stars scored six runs in the bottom of the sixth inning and soared past San Antonio Columbia 10-5 on Tuesday at the Texas State Junior League Tournament.
The win puts the team one win away from reaching the South Regional Tournament in Florida. With no losses so far in the double elimination tournament, the NB All-Stars have two shots at the state title. Their next game was scheduled today at IO a.m. against the winner of the Bear Creek-Abilene game.
All three remaining teams — Columbia, Abilene and Bear Creek — have one loss.
"We feel like we’re in pretty good shape," said NB coach Mike Reinter. "It's possible we could lose a game, but I tee! like ifs going to be very hard for anyone to beat us twice. Our boys will be a little more rested than the other team. We just have to stay focused."
Pitcher Ty Johnson earned the win, scattering eight hits and shutting out Columbia through four straight innings after the second. New Braunfels, winners of their last nine games, had 15 hits and committed only one error.
Columbia had taken a 2-1 lead in the second inning before Clay Coleman singled up the middle in the fourth inning to lock it at 2-2.
New Braunfels scored two more runs in the fifth. Chip Adams, who had three doubles in the game — including two that hit the fence just short of home runs - scored Bradley George, and Jared Fellers had an RBI single that extended the lead to 4-2.
With two outs in the sixth inning, New Braunfels widened the margin. Adams singled to bring in Cody Erben and Bradley George. Fellers then doubled to score Adams. Eric Sultemeier connected on an RBI single that scored Cody Reinter to make it 10-2.
"We started a tad slow," said coach Reinter. "Were known for coming out like that. Their pitcher wasn't throwing much speed which is what we like, but we woke up in the fourth and and then really started pounding the ball in the sixth during that rally."
Adams went 4-for-4 in the game. Bradley George was 2-for-3. Reinter, Schmid and Sultemeier each were 2-for-4.
"On defense, we did a good job keeping them down," he added. "Ty pitched what was probably his best game since the All-Stars started. We don't have real power at the mound, but our pitchers place the ball well and have good control."
The NB All-Stars recorded two double plays in the second and sixth innings.
Javier Gonzales set to start today's game. A win would send New Braunfels to the regional tournament on Friday.

Bucking the system
Herald-Zeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Houston Oilers' quarterback Bucky Richardson was cut from the roster yesterday to dear room under the salary cap. Richardson, the popular three-year veteran from Texas AAM, was slated to earn $450,000 this season. Officials have said they may try to resign Richardson for a smaller salary.
CHS football standout in All-Star game
Kevin Vestal, an all-state first team selection last fall from Canyon High School, was among the players who competed at McDonalds' All-Star Game.
The 6-3, 240 pound lineman will attend Texas A&M University and plans to walk-on with the Aggies this month.
Vestal was one of 35 players invited to join the All-Stars South Team under coach Mike Robbins of San Antonio Clark.
Judging by their performances in the Texas all-star football game, Texas A&M has a lot to look forward to with its incoming recruiting class.
The Aggies by far had the most incoming players in Tuesday night's game with 11 and many of them were the difference in the North’s 21-7 victory over the South.
Probably the most impressive was Marc Broyles, who helped lead Tyler John Tyler to last season’s Class 5A Division ll title.
Broyles, the game’s offensive MVP, led all rushers with 86 yards on 15 carries. His I-yard touchdown was the game-winner.
Broyles’ game isn’t fancy. At 5-foot-11, 235 pounds, he just plows into the middle of the line and usually doesn't come down until he can be gang-tackled. It often took three or four players to slow him and another to come flying in to knock him down.
“I saw him come through the middle alone and I said, ‘Uh-oh,’ ” said Schulenburg^ Steve Sartain, an incoming Aggie whose athletics will be confined to intramurals. “I just grabbed on as long as I could.”
DALLAS (AP) — Mickey Mantle has a “fighting chance” against the cancer that has developed in his right lung, but his doctor said the baseball great would not have received a liver transplant if he had known the cancer had spread.
The Hall of Famer had returned Friday to Baylor University Medical Center, where he underwent a liver transplant June 8, and was released Tuesday morning.
Mantle’s doctors said they discovered in an examination during a routine follow up that the cancer had spread to several small spots on Mantle’s right lung.
Doctors would not predict Mantle’s chances for survival as they had after the initial transplant, when they listed his five-year survival expectancy rate at about 60 percent.
NEW YORK (AP) — Dwight Gooden’s

Bill Goodstein said his client might apply later this week to have his latest drug-related suspension lifted in hopes of pitching in the major leagues before the month ends.
Meanwhile, Darryl Strawberry's return to New York appeared closer, with a club executive saying lite slugger could join the Yankees by this weekends
LONDON (AP) — One week after pushing for a new improved men’s tour, the International Tennis Federation backed out of its plans.
The ITF said recent negative and incorrect public debate forced it lo cancel negotiations with an organization interested in promoting the tour, believed to be linked with media
tycoon Rupert Murdoch.
The proposed tour would have provided more events down to satellite level, reduced administration fees for participating tournaments, and significantly increased prize money at the top level.

Mantle in hospital with lung cancer
DALLAS (AP) — Mickey Mantle, still recovering from the liver ailments that necessitated a transplant eight weeks ago, says he has lung cancer.
“The doctors found a couple of spots of cancer on my lungs,” the baseball great said in a statement broadcast today on ABC.
On Friday, the 63-year-old Mantle returned lo Baylor University Medical Center, where he underwent the transplant June 8. His original liver was damaged by the combined effects of a tumor, a longstanding hepatitis infection and years of alcohol abuse.
In his statement on “Good Morning America," Mantle said that doctors had discovered about two weeks ago that the cancer had spread to his lungs.
The hospital gave few details on his condition, but did say shortly before the ABC news report thai doc* tors would announce a “significant new development” about Mantle at a news conference later today.
In an interview on ABC, Dr. Robert Goldstein, one of Mantle’s physicians, said Mantle would “absolutely not” have received the liver transplant if the lung cancer had been detected beforehand.
"The good part is the liver is still working very very well,’’ Goldstein said.
“I think we’ll see him rebound and give him aggressive therapy,” Goldstein said.
ABC did not say when Mantle’s statement was made. In it, a wan-looking Mantle said: “Hi, this is Mick. When I left Baylor University Medical Center about six weeks ago, I felt great....
“I come back to the hospital for checkups every once in a while, and about two weeks ago, the doctors found a couple of spots of cancer in my lungs.”
He Mid he was taking chemotherapy “to get rid of the new cancer,” thanked fans for their great show of support.
