>Luke Appling, 55: election to baseball’s Hall of Fame. Famed, in approximately equalmeasure, for his 1) batting (.310 lifetime average), 2) versatility (he played first, second, shortstop and third), and 3) hypochondria (his teammates called him “Old Aches and Pains”), Appling loyally toiled for the Chicago White Sox for 20 years without ever playing on a pennant-winning team. “This makes up for it,” he said.

>Jimmy Heuga, 20: the Kandahar men’s combined championship, at Garmisch-Partkenkirchen, Germany.

Only a week after he had come out of nowhere to win a bronze medal in the special slalom at the Winter Olympics, the young Californian won the Kandahar special slalom, placed second in the giant slalom, easily beat France’s Leo Lacroix for the combined title. Another U.S. winner: Oregon’s lean Saubert, 21, who won the Kandahar women’s slalom,beating France’s Olympic Champion Marielle Goitschel.
