TAKING NO CHANCES
In Los Angeles in June, Cincinnati Reds rookie pitcher Scott Scudder was summoned by Reds general manager Murray Cook and informed that he was being demoted to Triple A Nashville. As Cook imparted the bad news, a mild earthquake shook the Los Angeles area (SI, June 26). Deadpanned Scudder, "Does it always shake like this when you send somebody out?"
Two months later, Scudder had been recalled and was with the Reds in San Francisco. In the wee hours of the morning, another earthquake struck. Scudder, who was in bed in his hotel room, rolled over and took the phone off the hook.
