could do it in two days.
Sanders, a full-time cornerback
with the Atlanta Falcons, is doing
double duty as an outfielder, trying
to help the Braves catch the Los
Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.
The Braves added Sanders to their
roster on Tuesday and he was in uni-
form for their game with the Cin-
cinnati Reds.
Sanders, who left the Braves
eight weeks ago to resume his foot-
ball career, will play both sports
for the duration of the pennant race.
The Braves trail first-place Los An-
geles by two games.
Sanders' return was triggered by
Braves general manager John Schuer-
holz, who tried in vain to acquire a
speedster after Otis Nixon, the
major-league leader with 72 stolen
bases, was suspended on Sept. 16 for
a drug violation.
"I talked with some other clubs
trying to acquire a speed guy,"
Schuerholz said Tuesday. "We de-
cided if Deion wanted to do it, as he
said he did, we'd give him the oppor-
turiity."
Manager Bobby Cox said San-
ders, who stole nine bases in 12
attempts for the Braves earlier in
the season, will be used "mostly as
a pinch runner, but knowing Deion it
doesn't take him long to get any-
thing back."
Schuerholz said he notified Fal-
cons president Taylor Smith of the
move.

"I didn't want to strain our rela-
tionship with the Falcons. We just
wanted a player who could run
fast," said Schuerholz, who added
that Smith "didn't object" when he
called.
Sanders said playing baseball
wouldn't affect his football career
and that he didn't expect to be fined.
Sanders reported several days late
when he left the Braves on July 31
and was fined $25,000.
"I don't expect to be," Sanders
said of the Possibility of a fine.
"I'm not doing anything wrong. I'll
be at practice, at the meetings and
the game. What I do on my own
time is my business.~~
Aside from his speed, how much
Sanders can help is open to question.
He hit just .193 in 49 games with
Atlanta this season, with four
homers and 13 RBIs.
Sanders career somewhat paral-
lels that of Bo Jackson, who became
the most successful two-sport ath-
lete of his generation with the
Kansas City Royals and the Los An-
geles Raiders.
But Jackson never played two
sports in 36 hours. Sanders plans to
do just that this weekend, playing
defensive back for the Falcons in
Atlanta on Sunday afternoon, then
heading to the airport that night to
be in Cincinnati on Monday for the
Braves.
Schuerholz said Sanders would
;uit up for nine of the Braves' final
