"When I was with Houston and [Reggie Jackson] was with the Yankees," says Forsch with a large grin, "I was pitching against him one time, and [Jonnye Forsch] and [Stephanie Forsch] were at the park, and Stephanie was screaming for Reggie to hit a home run. Jonnye had a little word with her about family loyalty."
One of the projects that keeps [Doug De Cinces] consistently occupied in the off-season is the charity golf tournament to which he lends his name and time as an organizer. Called the Doug De Cinces/March of Dimes Celebrity Golf Tournament, it is played in November at the El Caballero Country Club in Tarzana. Last year, says De Cinces, the tournament raised $116,000.

When the Angels held a seminar for fans, the youngest to show up was Dana Point's Brandon Boyd, 6 months old and sporting a slogan appropriate to the occasion. Please see story on Page 16.
