He's scheduled to re-appear in the paper tomorrow and resume his regular Friday, Sunday, Wednesday routine, says Harvey.

Unfortunately for the university, the ballpark occupies 10 acres of the 387-acre Veterans Administration health facility in West Los Angeles, land reserved for housing and treating veterans.
