Garv calls it quits

LA JOLLA, Calif. (AP)- Steve
Garvey, baseball's quintessential
good guy and one of the game's great
clutch hitters, retired yesterday after
17 years in the major leagues. He
spent the last five with the San
"This is in many ways the
toughest day of my life. In other
ways, it's quite exciting," said
Garvey, a first baseman who starred
12 years for the Los Angeles Dodgers
before joining the Padres as a free
agent in December 1982.
He had been on the disabled list
since May 30 with a torn bicep
tendon near his left shoulder, an
injury that required reconstructive
A lifetime .294 hitter, Garvey
batted .211 with one home run and
nine runs batted in in 27 games last
season before being sidelined.
Garvey, a 10-time All-Star who
enjoyed a tremendous fan following
because he was so obliging to fan
and charity requests, said the injury
that cut short his 1987 season also
influenced his decision to retire.
"It's a retirement that is decided
upon almost involuntarily because of
the severe injury that I had," Garvey
said. "It's an injury that has taken
much longer to heal than I expected.
It's an injury that over the last four
of five weeks has come along very
Garvey wasn't offered a 1988
contract by the Padres and became a
free agent in November.
He had hoped to play one more
season and held several preliminary
discussions with the Dodgers as well
as the Padres, who invited him to
spring training as a non-roster player.
But the slowness of the rehabilitation
forced him to change his mind.

Depaul's starting lineup for missing
basketball practice, has been ordered

In a police report filed Jan. 6, an
unidentified dorm guard at Depaul
charged that Strickland pushed him in
the face and shoved a small
Christmas tree at him after he refused
to give Strickland a pass key early
New Year's day.
"No comment," Strickland said,
when asked if he would show up next
Tuesday to defend himself in court.
The guard told police he refused to
give Strickland the pass key under a
dorm policy that no student be loaned
a key during the holidays. Strickland
denied that any punches were thrown.
Depaul Coach Joey Meyer also
refused to discuss details of the
"Rod and I have talked about what
happened that night, but while it's
still pending, I'm not at liberty to
discuss it," Meyer said on Tuesday.
Strickland will play tonight when
the Blue Demons host Dayton, but
will not start because he failed to
show up at practice Monday, Meyer
said. Strickland did work out with the
team the following day, after a peace
conference with Meyer.
"He said he wasn't prepared
mentally to come to practice," Meyer
said. "It wasn't the smartest thing
not to show up."
Tim Stephens, the Depaul sports
information director, said Strickland
will not comment on the matter
"until some future date."
