Cey sets his sights
on a Dodger pennant

By The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES - Ron Cey,
the Los Angeles Dodgers' All-
Star third baseman, occasion-
ally shatters the illusion that
he is merely a steady ball-
player.
He shattered the mold again
Wednesday night when he broke
his own Dodger record by driv-
ing home eight runs, six of them
on a pair of three-run home
runs, against the San Diego
Padres. Earlier this season he
had seven RBIs against Chi-
cago.
What about the major league
record of 12 in one game by
St. Louis' Jim Bottomley in
1924?
No, that's impossible for me,"
said Cey. "I'm still 33 per cent
away from that. I'll take eight
RBIs any day, but whether I
come home with a record or
not, I'm just doing my job."
The man his teammates af-
fectionately call "The Penguin"
because his short legs and arms
promote his waddling gait al-
ready has 75 RBIs to go with
14 homers and a .270 batting
average. A year ago, his first
full major league season, he
batted .245 with 15 homers and
60 runs batted in.
He also gave the Dodgers
their steadiest third base play
since the days of Jim Gilliam
almost a decade ago. But he
doesn't feel he is the steadiest
of the Dodger regulars this sea-
son.
'Obviously, to have the record
we have, there are a lot of
steady players on this team,"
he said of the Dodgers who have
a substantial lead over Cincin-
nati in the National League
West.
Cey said he's a better player
this season and so are the
Dodgers as a team because
they didn't win the pennant last
season.

"It's hard to say, you really
can't project that, but I think
we might not have been as
good a ball club as we are now
if everything had gone right.
We would not have seen our
mistakes as vividly as we did
and might have overlooked
them. I'm sorry that we didn't
win, but I feel it was a good
omen.
"I went home last winter and
thought about the things I did
and didn't do.
"I lost some weight," said
the 5-foot-10, 185-pounder, "and
I'm getting to ground balls
quicker. I'm more aggressive.
'I feel pretty good about the
pennant race. I'd much rather
be where we are than where
Cincinnati is. We have a much
better mental approach this
year. We were kinda going into
it blind last year, most of us
playing forsthe first time every
day at this level."
Lack of recognition might
have been a gripe for Cey and
other Dodger newcomers a year
ago. But it's not anymore.
"For me to get as many votes
as I did for the All-Star team,
well, they know."
