.,OSTON POST-GAZETTE, MAY 20, 2011 Page 15 Mystery Photo Getting Identified To date, the mystery photo from 1987 has got readers going here. As of last week, to readers, George Moses of Roslindale and Joey Hubbard have identified the following players, Rich Gedman, Marty Barrett and Calvin Schiraldi as well as manager John McNamara. There are still two other suits not identified yet. Schiraldi by the way had a great 1986 going 4-2 with a 1.41 ERA for the pennant winning Sox but in 1987 went 8-5 with a 4.41 ERA. Following 1987, he sailed into oblivion. No Hitters No Rarity Nowadays Once no-hitters in base- ball were unique but that seems to have been chang- ing as more and more have either happened or nearly happened recently in the game. There were two no- hitters in the first week of May by Justin Verlander of the Tigers and Francisco Liriano of the Twins. In the same week, three other pitchers carried no-hitters into the seventh inning. As of May 7, there have been eight complete games of two hits or fewer, the most since 1992 at the same point in the season. i J'RA Innings by Sal Giarratani Tim Wakefield the Old Man in the Pen Tim Wakefield called all the news hype over him be- coming the oldest pitcher ever for the Boston Red Sox nothing more than old news. Wakefield turned 44 years and 28 days old surpassing Deacon Maguire who was 44 years 280 days old in his last Sox game way back on Au- gust 24, 1908. The "Wake" has spent 17 of his 19 years in the majors thus far with the Red Sox. He was signed by Boston b'ack on April 26, 1995 and is the majors' active leader in wins with 193. Back in his younger days he always respected older pitchers on the mound. Charlie Hough and Nolan Ryan were both still good pitchers into their '40s. Tim respects getting old well and warns, "When you get up in age, you've really got to take care of yourself." Not Exactly Nolan Ryan Nor Sandy Koufax But According to those who watched it, the no-hitter thrown on May 3 by Minne- sota Twins pitcher Francisco Liriano was not the best one ever thrown. Liriano also came in to the game with an amazingly high 9.13 ERA, the highest ever for a starter about to throw a no-hitter. Some even called it an ugly no-hitter of all time. No points given out here for style. One writer called it a pseudo-masterpiece. He struck out two batters and walked a half dozen. Some are calling it the worst no- hitter since Lefty Chambers back in 1951. Liriano pitched against the CW Sox beating them I-0. The White Sox are 11-21 in the AL Central try- ing to catch the Minnesota Twins who are 11-18 in the same division. Why wouldn't a no-hitter in a White Sox- Twins game turn out not to look so good? After all, this isn't the cream of the crop but the worst of the worse. Why Doesn't Baseball Have Alcohol Policy? Major League Baseball has been working to create an alcohol policy even before a recent rash of DUI arrests. Said Rob Manfred, MLB executive vice president of labor relations/human resources, "Alcohol issue will certainly be a topic that will be addressed in the ongoing negotiations" with the players association. On May 1, Indians' outfielder Shin Soo Choo got arrested on suspicion of drunk driv- ing. Five other players have also faced drunken driv- ing charges, including two former Sox, Derek Lowe from Atlanta Braves and Coco Crisp who apparently must like something other than milk in his cold cereal, huh? While teams ban alcohol inside the clubhouse, there is no policy for alcohol of- fenses. The MLB drug policy includes illegal drug abuse such as marijuana and co- caine. Who is the Greatest Astro Baseball fans who like hit- ters say it is Jeff Bagwell. He leads the Houston franchise in homeruns with 449, 1,529 RBIs and a .540 slugging per- centage in a 15-year career (1991-2005). Or maybe, Craig Biggio who played in 2,850 games, hits with 3,060, ex- tra base hits with 1,014 and runs with 1,844. He played 20 seasons from 1988-2007. Pitching fans say it has to be Nolan Ryan who spent nine seasons (1971-80) and holds the franchise record with 1,866 strikeouts, a 106- 88 win-loss record with a 3.13 ERA with an average 33 starts per season. And finally, J.R. Richards who over 10 seasons went 107- 71 with a 3.15 ERA with 1,493 strikeouts and threw 19 shutouts. He suffered a stroke midway through the 1980 season and never pitched again.

Originally, the students were told once they left the ceremony, they would not be allowed back inside. Personally, I think once they leave, they should be barred. In the real world af- ter college, students will hear many opinions they disagree with. Walking out when you disagree with someone or something is simply not an option. We need to hear what we some- times don't like to hear, if only to re-enforce or chal- lenge our own views.
