Steve Garvey, as ever, remains in a committed relationship with baseball, even if he gives more back to it these days than he takes from it.

“Those of us who were blessed to be able to play this game and have careers, after those careers are over, we have to be ambassadors for the game,” Garvey said. “Pass the torch.”

These days, Garvey, and those still prodigious forearms, is still active in the sport. He is, for all intents and purposes, a baseball lifer.

“I love it. It’s been my life,” he said.

He is also a former Albuquerque Duke, and on Wednesday he was back on familiar ground, Isotopes Park, which was built over the site of his old haunts, the Albuquerque Sports Stadium.

Garvey, 65, a 10-time All-Star and former National League MVP, was in town as part of the 2014 Mobil Super “Go the Distance” Baseball Tour. It will visit 55 games in 18 states over a four-month period.

The affable Garvey spent two hours before Wednesday’s Isotopes game against Round Rock signing autographs, and also caught the ceremonial first pitch.

When he played here in 1969, that was the first year of the Sports Stadium, with its one-of-a-kind lava rocks and drive-in viewing area.

He later enjoyed a stellar career in Los Angeles and San Diego. Garvey comprised one quarter of one of the most iconic infields in baseball history. He, second baseman Davey Lopes, shortstop Bill Russell and third baseman Ron Cey spent nearly a decade together, an altogether impossibility in today’s game.

The four appeared in four World Series over an eight-year span with Los Angeles.

“It was a very different mix and equation,” Garvey said during a wide-ranging, 45-minute interview with the Journal on Wednesday afternoon at his hotel. “I’m quite sure it’s the longest longevity of an infield. I’m sure that record will never be broken.”

Garvey was also among those trying to buy the Dodgers from Frank McCourt; his group’s failed bid of $1.4 billion (the figure cited by Garvey) was well short of the sale price of over $2 billion.

“We thought $1.4 billion was the top end of the value of the franchise,” Garvey said.

He was fired from the Dodgers when he openly called for McCourt to give up the team. Garvey had been serving in a part-time job in marketing and community relations.

But he’s focused on other things nowadays. Garvey’s son, Ryan, a corner infielder, is working his way through the Colorado Rockies organization.

“A much bigger arm than his dad,” Garvey said. “High baseball IQ.”

Garvey also hit on some other topics, as he compared eras. One interesting note: Even during the height of his career, Garvey said, he took a second job outside of baseball, with Pepsi-Cola. He graduated from Michigan State and was already pondering a life outside of baseball.

Best player in baseball?

“Over the last two years,” he said, “you’d have to say (Miguel) Cabrera.”

Pete Rose? Belong in the Hall of Fame?

“Yes,” Garvey said. “But don’t allow him to work in baseball.”

On playing in the Dodgers organization?

“You can feel the history, you can feel the jersey,” Garvey said. “You develop a culture.”

Toughest pitcher he ever faced?

“I faced 14 Hall of Famers,” Garvey said. Then he paused.

“Phil Niekro.”

On the passing of former teammate Bob Welch, who died earlier this week:

“A great individual, a great father and husband,” Garvey said. “A consummate professional.”

Josh Walker’s career as a professional baseball player starts today.

Selected by the Baltimore Orioles in round 22 of last week’s major league draft, Walker is set to report to the team’s spring training facility in Sarasota, Fla., for physical examinations and rookie orientation.

Flying to Florida represents the first big step in what Walker hopes will be an extended baseball journey. A Rio Rancho native, who pitched for Rio Rancho High and the University of New Mexico, Walker said the past few days have been an exciting blur.

“To think I’ve signed my player agreement and will be reporting to Florida this week feels pretty incredible,” Walker said. “This is something I’ve always wanted to do, but it’s all happened so quickly.”

Walker, who recently concluded an outstanding three-year career at UNM, said the draft effectively threw him a curveball. He hoped to be selected somewhere between the 12th and 25th rounds and had those hopes affirmed on day two of the three-day draft.

“The Detroit Tigers called me on the second day and asked if I was ready to go,” Walker said. “Then the (Florida) Marlins texted me that night and basically asked the same thing. So when the third day started I really thought it was down to those two teams.”

Walker and his mother were listening to an audio broadcast of the draft Saturday, when he unexpectedly heard his name called.

“It was a complete shock,” Walker said. “At first I thought it was a mistake. The Orioles didn’t call first or anything, but maybe a minute later the phone rang and it was (Orioles area scout) John Gillette. I thought, ‘OK, this is legit. Awesome.’”

Being drafted by Baltimore did not come entirely out of left field, Walker said. The organization had shown considerable interest in him throughout his senior season. He talked with Gillette during the Mountain West tournament in Las Vegas, Nev., as well.

Since the draft Walker has been in communication with Orioles personnel on a daily basis. He’s been told that if all goes well in Florida, a trip to Aberdeen, Md. – home of the Single-A Aberdeen IronBirds – could soon follow.

“They told me they’d probably assign me to short-season Single-A ball,” Walker said. “I’m really excited to get started.”

If he is assigned to Aberdeen, Walker will have an opportunity to get more familiar with his new organization. Ripken Stadium, the IronBirds’ home ballpark, is just 26 miles from Baltimore.

“I’ve gotten to like the Orioles lately,” Walker said. “They’ve got some good up-and-coming players and have started being contenders. To be honest, though, Cal Ripken Jr. was the only Orioles player I knew before the last couple years.

“I’ve started doing some research. I don’t want to be completely oblivious about my organization.”

Walker was one of three Lobos drafted this year, joining senior outfielder Chase Harris (Philadelphia Phillies, 14th round) and junior catcher Alex Real (Minnesota Twins, 24th round). The draft basically progressed as UNM coach Ray Birmingham had hoped.

“I felt like the three guys who should’ve been drafted were drafted,” Birmingham said. “Playing pro ball is a dream they all had, and I’m happy to see them get their shot.”

Three recent high school players who have committed to New Mexico also were drafted late Saturday. First baseman/right-handed pitcher Carl Stajduhar of Colorado Springs Rocky Mountain was selected by the Atlanta Braves in the 27th round, RHP James Harrington of Arizona’s Mesquite High went to the Phillies in 33rd round, and catcher Cory Voss of Colorado’s Pueblo South went to the Colorado Rockies in round 34.

Birmingham hopes all three will choose to become Lobos rather than sign pro contracts.

“Most kids coming out of high school will improve their stock if they go to college,” Birmingham said. “Now, if you’re drafted early and get life-changing money, that’s different. But pro ball is hard, and guys drafted in the late rounds trying to work their way up have it even harder. Hopefully, these kids will see that and decide to come be Lobos.”

Brent Jones, Albuquerque Academy graduate and Cornell University junior, on Friday became the first player with direct local ties to be selected in Major League Baseball’s first-year player draft.

Jones went to the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fourth round, the 120th selection overall.

According to a story on the Cornell University website, the right-handed pitcher was 2-3 with a 2.50 earned run average this season. But his coach, Bill Walkenbach, said Jones possesses a 96 mph fastball and major league curveball. “His stuff is electric.”

The story also said Jones had over 50 scouts present at his final start of the year at Princeton.

None of the prospective University of New Mexico draftees went Friday, which included rounds 3 through 10, though UNM coach Ray Birmingham said that senior outfielder Chase Harris was getting calls from the Philadelphia Phillies and at least one other organization during the day.

Harris on Friday was named the District VIII Player of the Year, a district honor bestowed on only 11 players nationwide.

“I think he’ll go in the top 10 or 15 rounds,” Birmingham said. “He’s a very toolsy player, and he plays his butt off every game.”

Rounds 11-40 take place today and can be monitored on MLB.com.

OFFSPRING: The sons of former big leaguers Lenny Dykstra and Charlie Leibrandt were among the players selected during the second day of the Major League Baseball draft.

Luke Dykstra, an infielder at Westlake High School in suburban Los Angeles, was drafted in the seventh round by Atlanta. He’s the second son of the former All-Star outfielder to be drafted; infielder Cutter Dykstra was a second-round pick by Milwaukee in 2008 and is in Washington’s system.

Florida State left-hander Brandon Leibrandt went in the sixth round to Philadelphia. He was 4-1 with a 1.83 ERA this season, but missed several weeks with a severely bruised left leg.

After having no picks in the first two rounds, Baltimore made eight selections Friday, including Notre Dame right-hander Pat Connaughton, who also started for the Fighting Irish basketball team.

TOP PICK: Brady Aiken, the California high school left-hander who went No. 1 in the draft on Thursday to Houston, mesmerized the Astros with his impeccable control.

“It’s the most advanced high school pitcher I’ve ever seen in my entire career,” Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said. “He has command like I’ve never seen before of his stuff.”

That “stuff” includes a fastball that hits 96-97 mph, a knee-buckling curve and a tough changeup that sits in the low- to mid-80s. The 17-year-old from San Diego’s Cathedral Catholic High School is just the third prep pitcher to be selected first overall, joining fellow lefties Brien Taylor (1991, Yankees) and David Clyde (1973, Rangers).

“It’s really a dream come true,” Aiken said. “This is something that I’ve wanted ever since I was a young kid. I’m at a loss for words.”

The Astros are the first team to select first in three consecutive drafts, having picked shortstop Carlos Correa in 2012 and right-hander Mark Appel last year.

Aiken is the first high school lefty to be drafted in the first five picks since Adam Loewen went fourth overall to Baltimore in 2002. The UCLA recruit, who compared himself to Clayton Kershaw and David Price, is also in line to receive a huge contract. The allotted slot bonus for the top pick is nearly $8 million.

“There were a couple of people in the running (for No. 1), so we didn’t know until it came on TV,” said Aiken. “It was unbelievable.”

Alan Dils showed up at the Lobo Tennis Club nearly 30 years ago, a fresh-faced kid with no idea of how his life was about to be shaped.

“Ironically, I thought I’d be done in a couple of days,” Dils said.

Dils, a high school tennis star from Belen, had decided to tryout for the UNM tennis team.

“I lost in the semifinals of the tryout tournament to one of Dave Geatz’s star recruits, and I thought I was done,” Dils said. “But Dave was nice enough to let me stick around.”

Dils could hardly figure then that he would one day follow in Geatz’s footsteps and become head tennis coach at UNM.

Now, after 18 years as head coach, Dils will retire from the men’s tennis program at the end of this month.

Dils first began to think about coaching as his playing days at UNM wound down (he was a WAC doubles champ with Steve Bickham in 1987 and WAC singles finalist in 1989).

Then-head coach Tim Cass (now chief operating officer of the school’s athletic department) brought him on as an assistant. When Cass left to coach Texas A&M, Dils took over. That was in 1996.

Now it’s time to move on from coaching.

“A lot of factors went into it, not the least my family,” Dils said.

Dils’ brother, Loren, a former UNM coach and player, has ALS.

“It’s been over six years, which is phenomenal,” Alan said. “I just got back from an ALS golf tournament at Tanoan and he was there, up and around.

“I’d like to spend a lot more time with him and my dad, who needs a little more help now. I won’t have to travel as much. It gives me some freedom.”

Dils, who graduated from UNM with a degree in business administration in 1989, will remain with school’s athletic administration and will have a key role in fundraising for the completion of the McKinnon Family Tennis Center.

“Paul (Krebs, UNM athletic director) and Tim were very understanding,” Dils said.

Dils led the Lobos to conference championships in 2000, ’03, ’04, ’08 and ’09.

Now he will hand the reins over to his assistant and another former Lobo, Bart Scott.

“Bart Scott is so ready to be a head coach,” Dils said. “He’s very, very good. It eases my mind to know he’s there.”

Dils leaves the Lobos with a record of 260-169 and five MWC coach of the year awards. He had five all-Americans during his tenure as head coach. In 1998, the Lobos doubles team of Pepe Caballero and Jeff Williams won three straight matches at the NCAA Championships for the first time in school history. Under Dils, the Lobos appeared in a school-record seven consecutive NCAA singles, doubles or team tournament appearances.

“This is an emotional and exciting time for Alan, all wrapped up in one,” Cass said in a statement. “Alan has had a tremendous amount of success in all phases; as a student-athlete, as an assistant, and as the head coach. What is really special is the respect that the program and Alan have gotten nationally from coaches across the country for the class manner in which he has run it.”

Dils, whose Lobos last season posted a 3.52 grade point average, says he treasures the relationships he has made over the years. Several of his players have gone on to become coaches. He was flooded with Facebook messages on Monday as word of his retirement leaked.

“It’s so much fun coaching them,” Dils said. “Youth is fun – seeing the energy they have. Watching them come in as 18-year-olds, leave as 22-, 23-year-olds, and see the amazing transformation they go through. That’s probably the piece I will miss most. I’ll lose the ability to make new connections.”

Larry Roskom of Club Rio Rancho recently recorded a hole-in-one. He aced the fourth hole on the Sarazan East nine, using a 5-hybrid on the 130-yard hole. It was his fourth ace.

Also, member Jim Fitzgerald, 80, bettered his age twice late last month, shooting rounds of 77 and 78.

Here we are, the last of the Journal’s All-Metro teams for the 2013-14 school year.

I thought it was a very level playing field this season in baseball. Not many extraordinary talents, but there was quality depth at many positions.

I would describe softball as 180 degrees the other way. There was an unusually high volume of dominant athletes, and a majority of them resided in one district.

Baseball

Eldorado, which had the best record through the first two-thirds of the year, has three players on the first team, none of them seniors, which surely bodes well for the Eagles’ future chances.

Junior first baseman Andrew Stubbs not only had a robust season at the plate, but veteran EHS coach Jim Johns said Stubbs might be the best defensive first baseman he’s ever had.

Junior right fielder Austin Treadwell and promising sophomore third baseman Nathaniel Garley also were chosen to the first team.

Volcano Vista had three representatives as well.

Oddly enough, because of the way all-district voting is done, Hawks’ sophomore left-hander Tanner West wasn’t even eligible to be put on the Class 5A all-state ballot. He didn’t make the first team in his district, which meant he couldn’t be voted all-state.

Which is practically criminal. There were 15 pitchers on the all-state team and West wasn’t one of them? (Note to coaches: there is a serious flaw in your system if a kid like this is left off an all-state team.)

Nevertheless, West was my selection as our first-team pitcher. That he beat state champion La Cueva twice should tell you all you need to know; his only loss was a game in which he was outpitched 1-0. The Lobos will be getting a tremendous talent.

His battery mate, Daniel Herrera, is also on the first team. Catcher was a deep position, with the likes of La Cueva’s Andrew Pratt and Eldorado’s Ambrose Romero.

Junior centerfielder Chris Padilla is the last of the first-teamers from Volcano Vista.

Rio Rancho’s Marcus Martinez, with perhaps the exception of one terrible multi-error game against Volcano Vista, handled the transition from catcher – where he played his first four seasons with the Rams – to shortstop better than I imagined he would.

La Cueva’s smooth Connor Calvert in left field, and St. Pius’ Tristin Rizek at designated hitter round out the first team. Rizek’s natural position is shortstop, but he had a monster offensive season for the Sartans. Calvert drove in an impressive 41 runs for the Bears.

Softball

In the many years I have been selecting All-Metro teams in various sports, never has there been an instance where nearly all of the first-teamers – and second-teamers, for that matter – originated from one league.

But as you will have noticed, District 1-5A comprised 80 percent of the All-Metro teams this spring. There are eight players on the first team, eight more on the second team.

This could surely rub some people the wrong way, but in truth it shouldn’t.

District 2-5A doesn’t have a single player on either team, for example. But 2-5A was did not distinguish itself; consider that its champion, La Cueva, got a No. 12 seed at state. There were some very young teams in that district.

Rio Rancho, the 5A state champion, has five players on the first team, which is both just and fair since the Rams slaughtered most everyone in their path, losing only one game to a New Mexico school.

Senior pitcher Nicole Pendley, the state’s best player, won 21 games. She also hit nearly .600 and swatted 14 home runs while driving in 50 runs.

“Pendley is impossible to get out,” West Mesa coach Jimmy Hernandez said.

University of Kansas recruit Jessie Roane had 11 home runs and a mind-blowing 64 RBIs. She’s on the first team, along with sophomore shortstop BreOnna Castañeda (9 home runs), junior outfielder Jovanni Felix and freshman phenom Venessa Gallegos at second base.

Gallegos hit seven homers, drove in 36 runs in that powerhouse Ram offense, and also swiped 29 bases.

Two Volcano Vista standouts, catcher Jade Gray and first baseman Taylor Sargent, are repeat first-team selections.

Gray has signed with the University of New Mexico, Sargent with UTEP.

Cibola’s clutch junior, Ariana Maldonado, is a first-team outfielder.

You have to look to District 5-5A to find the final two members of the first team.

The third outfielder is West Mesa junior Olivia Simoni. Albuquerque High’s Chantel Purcella is the DH.

NMAA championship courses change

The New Mexico Activities Association is changing venues for the state golf championships, starting next spring.

The tourneys will be held at Albuquerque’s Canyon Club, Farmington’s Pinon Hills and Roswell’s Nancy Lopez Golf Course at Spring River. Each will host one class (boys and girls) on a rotating basis over the next three years.

2013 champ will miss Women’s City

Defending champion Dominique Galloway won’t play in next month’s Albuquerque Women’s City Amateur Championship because she will be in a U.S. Women’s Amateur qualifier that week in Denver.

It will be a busy month for Galloway, a rising junior at Cleveland High. She won Monday’s qualifier at Santa Ana Golf Club to land a spot in the U.S. Amateur Public Links in mid-July. Her sister, Jacquelyn, and Socorro’s Kristen Cline grabbed the other spots in the qualifier.

Jacquelyn, who just completed seventh grade at Mountain View Middle School, won a sudden-death playoff against Dea Mahendra, who was a senior on the University of New Mexico team this season.

Junior camps are underway in NM

Most courses in the state offer junior golf lessons, clinics or camps.

The 2014 University of New Mexico Men’s Golf Junior Camp is open to boys and girls ages 5-18 at the UNM Championship Course. Lobo men’s coaches Glen Millican and Jim Garren conduct the camp, which is June 9-12, from 8 a.m.-noon. Cost is $150. For more information, call 505-604-4786.

Los Altos has started its three-day weekly junior camps — Tuesday-Thursday from 9-10:30 a.m. each week until July 31. Cost is $60 per student and it is open to boys and girls ages 7-17. Los Altos head pro Colby Reddoch and aides Mitch Reddoch  and Bill Barclay are instructors. Call 505-298-1897 for information.

Sun Country junior tour has openings

Registration for the Sun Country Junior Golf Tour is still open, providing junior golfers in New Mexico and El Paso a platform to compete.

There are approximately 50 tournaments across the state and El Paso. Memberships are $40 and individual tourney entries are $25 (exceptions include the Sun Country Junior Match Play, the Junior PGA National Championship Qualifier and the season-ending Junior Tour Championship).

For information, call 505-897-0864 or go to suncountryjuniortour.com.

Holes in One

BERNIE VAUGHAN — Paa-Ko Ridge GC, No. 8, 215 yards, 5-wood, his first.

DAN PEDRICK — Los Altos, No. 15, 165 yards, 5-wood, his first.

JACK FULLERTON — Tanoan CC, Acoma No. 5, 137 yards, 9-iron, his third.

BERNARD DELGADO, Cochiti Lake — Cochiti Golf Club No. 16, 170 yards, 6-iron, his first.

LARRY ROSKOM — Club Rio Rancho, No. 4 Sarazen East, 130 yards, 5-hybrid, his 4th.

 

Etc …

Chase Harris became the first University of New Mexico baseball player selected in the 2014 MLB Draft Saturday when the Philadelphia Phillies took him in the 14th round at No. 412 overall. Josh Walker was taken by the Baltimore Orioles in the 22nd round and junior catcher Alex Real went in the 24th round to the Minnesota Twins.

The Lobos have now had 25 players drafted in head coach Ray Birmingham’s seven years at the helm of the program, including a school-record seven players selected last season.​

“I’m speechless,” Harris, a native of Boise, Idaho, said. “The first part of my dream just came true, and now I get to pursue my dream in the big leagues. I’m honored to be heading to Philadelphia.”

Harris, a senior who was an All-Mountain West first team selection and the National Collegiate Baseball Writer Association’s District VIII Player of the Year this season, is a first-time draftee. He led the Lobos in virtually every offensive category this season: average (.377), at bats (247), hits (93), triples (5), home runs (8), RBIs (63), slugging (.539) and on-base percentage (.432). The only categories he didn’t lead in — runs (46), doubles (11) and stolen bases (13) — he finished second.

He ranks eighth in the nation in hits and RBIs per game (1.09) and played excellent defense for UNM, finishing with four outfield assists. He started all 117 games in right field for UNM over the last two seasons, which is the sixth longest consecutive starts streak in program history.

He is the 28th highest Lobo ever selected in the first-year player draft.

Walker, a right-handed pitcher from Rio Rancho, was one of the most successful pitchers to ever play for UNM and the first Lobo hurler to ever earn Preseason All-America honors, which he did prior to this season.

He finished with 26 career wins, second all-time and one behind the school record, and third in winning percentage at .743 (26-9). He also ranks in the top 10 in career appearances (62, T-8th), innings pitched (267.1, 8th) and saves (8, T-7th). An excellent control pitcher, he walked just 1.7 batters per nine innings in his career.

Walker’s junior season in 2013 was one of the best ever by a Lobo pitcher. He went 11-1 with seven saves and a 3.66 ERA in 29 appearances. He won his first 11 decisions and allowed opponents to hit just .258 off him.

Real, a Johnny Bench Award semifinalist and All-Mountain West first team honoree this season, was the 710th overall selection. Former Lobo catcher Mitch Garver was a ninth-round pick by the Twins last season.

The native of Anthem, Ariz., hit .320 this season and ranks third in the nation with 25 doubles. He scored 37 runs, drove in 47 and added a triple and two homers to his double total. His .465 slugging percentage was second on the team behind Harris.

Par 4, 350 yards from the blue (middle) tees

So you’ve had a strong front 9 at Sandia, which – as always – is in gorgeous shape from tee-to-green. Now it’s on to No. 10, and what looks to be a relatively easy par 4 because of the bowl-shaped fairway. Yes, most off-center drives will bounce toward the middle. But don’t take this for granted, and remember that you are playing uphill into a picturesque view of the Sandias. The ideal drive is a right-to-left shot starting at the left bunkers.

The green is protected by a false front, bunkers on the right and behind, and a deep collection area on the left. The false front will toss your ball back down into the fairway if your approach shot is short, so make sure you have the right club and be aggressive. If the pin is in the center, play a little extra club and the ball will roll back for an easy birdie attempt.
