     Former replacement player and current Astro CRAIG MCMURTRY
received a standing ovation from Astros fans as he was introduced
Tuesday night.  According to Terry Blount in the HOUSTON
CHRONICLE, "It was a clear message to the other Astros that all
is not forgiven from the strike" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 8/18)....The
Clown Prince of Baseball, MAX PATKIN, will be honored Saturday by
the Reading Phillies for his 52 years of entertaining.  Due to
health problems, Patkin can entertain no more.  The Hall of Fame
will show Patkin's uniform in Cooperstown (USA TODAY, 8/18).
