ADDITIONS TO THE LISTS
In your Oct. 14 EXTRA POINTS you gave us a Quick Count of the NFL's alltime Top 20 for consecutive games played. Didn't recently retired Ram defensive end Jack Youngblood play 201 consecutive games before missing one because of a herniated disk in his spine?
?Yes, he did.—ED.
While flipping through back issues of SI, I came across the FACES IN THE CROWD section of the July 12, 1982 issue, which included a picture of a young baseball and football player named Vincent Coleman. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't this the Cardinals' rookie speedster, Vince Coleman? If so, would you please reprint that item?
?Indeed they are one and the same. Here is the item.—ED.
Coleman, a senior center-fielder at Florida A & M, stole seven bases against Alabama State to equal the NCAA single-game record. He led Division I in 1981 with 65 steals in 66 games and was twice an all-conference punter in football.
Regarding INSIDE PITCH (Sept. 16) and Matthew M. Thomas's letter (19TH HOLE, Oct. 14) concerning major league baseball players who wore 00, please add one other illustrious name to the list. In 1954, after a two-year absence from the majors, former Yankee ace reliever Joe Page made a brief comeback with the Pirates, during which he wore 00. Ironically, his won-lost record in his seven appearances that season was 0-0.

I was struck by your photo of Roone Arledge, ABC's president of news and sports (The Big Three Aren't Sold On Seoul, Sept. 23). If Arledge were to put on a New York Mets uniform, I think he could pass for Rusty Staub.
