The first time, Matt Szczur said, it kind of catches you off guard. You make the big leagues out of spring training, but April is barely half over when you're called into the manager's office. The general manager is in there, too, they're telling you that they want you to get regular at-bats, that they're real happy with you, but that you're going back to triple A. It's not a shock anymore. Szczur, the former Villanova football all-American and baseball star from Lower Cape May High School, now 26 years old, has shuttled between the Chicago Cubs and their top farm club 10 times this season.

"Reliving the days of almost 35 years ago when I was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies, 20th round, signed that June, reported to Helena, Montana, and got started in professional baseball . . .

Tom Shields remembers the feeling well. He was facing Atlanta's Steve Avery back in April, and the Braves lefthander was throwing Shields his patented slider. Shields smacked Avery's second pitch into right field for a single. As Shields reached first base, coach Jose Martinez asked the umpire for the ball. It was Shields' first major-league hit, and like any rookie, Shields wanted to get the ball for his trophy case. Tom Shields isn't like many other rookies, however.
