New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 29, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Boggs happy to be back in Texas, majors “I don’t think we’ll be the favorite to win the division, but then neither were the Chicago Cubs last year. Ifs just a matter of who can be consistent through the year. “We’ve got some good hitters on the club. The hitting is there and we have a good nucleus of pitchers,’’ Boggs said. “If we can get the pitching to come around, we’ll be right there in the race.” Boggs said he would prefer to be in the rotation of starters, but added he'd be happy to play wherever he would be most usef ul. “I would prefer to be a starter, but I’ll be a swing man or middle man. With my arm, I don’t think I’d be much use as a short reliever, though,” he said “At this stage of my career, as long as I’m in the big leagues, ITI be happy,” Boggs said Boggs and the other pitchers as well as catchers report to spring training in Pompano Beach, Fla. on Feb 22 The rest of the team reports on March I. Boggs said he hopes to prove in spring training that he can still play at the major league level. “The biggest thing I'll have to prove is that I'm healthy,” he said “After that, everting else will come naturally.” And while pre-season training may be gruesome in other sports such as football. Boggs said baseball players look forw ard to going to camp. ‘“Actually, spring training is a fun time, vacation time,” Boggs said. “You look forward to getting back to playing, especially after a long layoff like I've had, “You also look forward to seeing the guys again And in Florida, you can play golf every day on some beautiful courses Ifs really nice out there" he said Between rounds of golf. Boggs will have his work cut out for him. proving to himself and his coaches that he is healthy. For the time being, he is just happy to have the chance and grateful that it is in TexasBy TOM LABINSKI Staff writer After a long absence. Tommy Boggs is back home in Texas. Now that he is closer to his hometown in Georgetown, all he has to do is prove he can still pitch in the major leagues. After a trade by the Atlanta Braves, Boggs is now back in the Texas Rangers’ uniform, the uniform in which he started his pro career in 1976. He missed most of last season with arm troubles. He has had two major operations in the last two years, and at age 33, wants to prove he can play again. “I’vethrown a little bit in the iast couple of weeks, and my arm feels pretty close to IOO percent,” Boggs said. “I feel like I’m in real geed shape.” Boggs was in New Braunfels on Saturday to sign up players for his baseball clinic. “The last surgery I had was in November of ‘83, but ever since then I have been on a rehabilitation program. I've been doing a lot of weightlifting and just working on the arm. It’s coming along good but rehab is not fun, that’s for sure,” he said After spending two years with the Rangers in 1976-1977, the former Austinite said he was glad to be back in the I Aine Star State. “I’m happy to be close to home at this stage of my career.” Boggs said. “I had a good time w ith the Rangers when I was first here and made a lot of close friends. I'm looking forward to playing with them again.” Boggs said Texas has as good a chance as any to win the American l^eaugue Western Division. "I think our chances are good. We are in the right division. There are no powerhouses in our division.” he said. “Kansas City isn’t close to being as dominating as they USI lf KRIEWALDT Mf RAI 0 ZtlTt»*W> Tommy Boggs ‘The last surgery I had was in November of ‘83, but ever since then I have been on a rehabilitation program.

I think it will come dowm to the last w eek of the season again. There are some good teams in there, but no one is going to stand out." he said. Boggs said the key to Texas' success w ill be in playing consistently throughout the year, even in the midst of the hot Texas summer. “It seems for the last few years, and even when I was with the team, Texas would be nght there at the top and then the team would hit a tailspin. If we can avoid that, out chances are real good,” he said Briefly Upset Aguirre drills 76ers By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Philadelphia 76ers were gunned down by a sharpshooter out to make his point. Dallas’ Mark Aguirre, snubbed by the All-Star selectors, drilled 17 of 25 shots from the floor and scored a career-high 49 points Monday night, leading the Mavericks to a 111-109 National Basketball Association victory over the 76ers. "I was kind of upset,” said Aguirre, who made last year's All-Star team. “I came out to w in.” And he helped nail down the triumph with eight points in the final three minutes after the Mavs saw a 13-point lead disappear to a 98-98 deadlock with 4:96 to play as Julius Erving and Moses Malone rallied the Sixers. Besides Aguirre’s heroics, which eclipsed his previous high of 46 points. Brad Davis made three free throws and Derek Harper hit a pair in the last 50 seconds. Philadelphia’s Maurice Cheeks missed a 25-foot jump shot with one second to play.
