In the Blotter section of the June 18 edition (SCORECARD) you report that the Shaq SST Expedition marks the first time that an athlete's name has appeared on an automaker's vehicle. Chevrolet would have to object to that as it produced a Michael Jordan edition of its Blazer.

?There have also been special-edition vehicles offered by manufacturers or local dealer groups bearing the names of athletes such as Terry Bradshaw, Mark Donahue, Jack Nicklaus and Reggie White.—ED.
Giving Doug His Due
As an Orioles fan of more than 40 years, I was delighted to read your profile of Doug DeCinces (CATCHING UP WITH, June 18). I was, however, sorry to be reminded of the treatment he received from some fans because he had the misfortune to follow Brooks Robinson at third base. For the record, Doug always publicly handled the situation with grace.

More about Moises
Thank you for your article on Moises Alou (above) by Jeff Pearlman (Forget Me Not, June 18). Throughout his career Alou has been snubbed for MVP awards for the All-Star Game, the regular season and the postseason. I believe that he's been overlooked simply because he wasn't the most popular player.
