[Thumb Up]To the NAIA, for reversing its stand in the case of Nebraska Wesleyan guard Tim Miller (SCORECARD, Sept. 2) and granting him a fifth season of eligibility. The NAIA had ruled that Miller used up his eligibility last year, when he played in five of nine football games before being called to serve in the gulf war.
[Thumb Up]To the Boston Red Sox, for saying they will honor a clause in the contract of reliever Jeff Gray that calls for him to be paid a bonus if he appears in at least 55 games this year. Gray had appeared in 50 games when, on July 30, he suffered a seizure that will keep him out for the remainder of the season.
[Thumb Down]To the City of Cincinnati, for its refusal to pad the outfield fence at Riverfront Stadium. Only after the Phillies' Lenny Dykstra broke his collarbone when he ran into the fence last week did the city announce that it would pad the fence next year—leaving outfielders unprotected for the rest of this season.
