EPSTEIN: Randy, going back to what you said about staying the Bellevue-Stratford hotel in Philly during All-Star week, and then there’s that breakout of Legionnaires disease two weeks later. How did you feel about hearing that news?
RANDY JONES: Yes I remember that well. That happened a week after we left. Myself and some of the Padre players couldn’t believe our luck at not getting sick. Figured it just wasn’t our time. Very freaky.
AL OLIVER: I remember the Legionnaires disease thing all too well. About two weeks after the All-Star break, I came down with an inner ear problem, balance problems. I was hitting .360 at the break, the best first half of my career-
EPSTEIN: You were leading the league in hitting at the time-
AL OLIVER: That’s right, and soon after that, I came down with the inner-ear problem. Got so bad I had to ask out of a couple games. They ran tests on me but didn’t find anything. Their conclusion was the inner-ear infection was causing my instability. I ended up not qualifying for the batting crown that year. I thought, some way, I got some kind of strain. I just wasn’t the same in the 2nd half.
