* New York Yankees right-hander Paul Quantrill was suspended for three games, and manager Joe Torre was given a one-game ban after the reliever threw at Detroit's Jason Smith last week.
Quantrill decided not to appeal and he and Torre began their suspension Tuesday night in Kansas City. Both were also fined undisclosed amounts.
* Mark Sandy, an associate athletic director at the University of Richmond, was named Eastern Kentucky's athletic director on Tuesday.
Sandy will begin at Eastern Kentucky on July 1, university President Joanne Glasser said. He will replace John Shafer, who resigned in October 2004, citing health concerns. Since then, Robert "Jake" Bell, a former athletic director at Georgetown College, has served as Eastern Kentucky's interim athletic director. Bell said he would not be a candidate for the permanent job.
* At long last, trainer Nick Zito will find out what it's like to be inducted into racing's Hall of Fame instead of attending the ceremony and wondering.
"I remember just about every one of them, and I just loved it," Zito said Tuesday after being elected to the National Museum of Racing's Hall of Fame. "I just wanted to know how it would feel someday, like everybody else. Anybody that says they don't want to be in there, they're just not human. It's a great, great honor."
Zito, voted into the hall in his eighth year of eligibility, will be inducted Aug. 8 at Saratoga Springs, along with three standouts in steeplechase racing -- jockey Thomas Walsh, trainer Sidney Watters Jr. and five-time champion Lonesome Glory.
Zito, 57, won the Kentucky Derby with Strike the Gold in 1991 and Go for Gin in 1994, and also won the 1996 Preakness with Louis Quatorze and the 2004 Belmont Stakes with Birdstone, who played the spoiler's role in Smarty Jones' Triple Crown bid.
