Extractions: Penn Biographies Douglas Metunwa Glanville (Doug) (born 1970) Major league baseball player, 1996-2005 Systems engineer Douglas Metunwa Glanville was born in Hackensack, New Jersey, on August 25, 1970. A high school baseball star, Glanville was also a good student. He graduated in the top five percent of his class at Teaneck High School, where his mother was a math teacher. After Glanville enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania in 1988, he played varsity baseball for three years. The summer after his sophomore year, when he played baseball in a top summer league on Cape Cod, Glanville was named the Top Pro Prospect of the summer leagues. The following year, 1991, he became a first-round draft pick by the Chicago Cubs. Academics were important to Glanville, however, and he did not hesitate to turn down baseball opportunities to study for exams. He really enjoyed his work in systems engineering; his senior engineering project was a transportation-feasibility study for a proposed baseball stadium on the site of the Philadelphia post office at 30th Street. When he took a leave of absence in the spring of 1992 to play ball, he returned in the fall to finish his course work and graduate. After graduation, Glanville worked full-time for the Cubs, in training clubs and in Puerto Rico. He made his major league baseball debut on June 9, 1996, as an outfielder for the Chicago Cubs. In 1998 he was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies and played with them until 2004, except for his 2003 season when he played first with the Texas Rangers and then with the Cubs. In 2005 he was traded to the New York Yankees, but did not play. At his retirement after nine seasons as a major league player, he had accumulated 1100 hits and a 293-game errorless streak. In 1999 Glanville led the major leagues on successful stolen bases.

Extractions: Search All NYTimes.com January 21, 2010, 5:26 pm By DOUG GLANVILLE Doug Glanville on baseball, its controversies and its lessons for life. baseball Godzilla Mark McGwire steroids Tim Parker/Reuters Mark McGwire hitting his 70th home run of the season on September 27, 1998. Last week, after years of public curiosity about what was hidden behind Mark McGwire’s testimony to Congress in 2005, McGwire admitted he indeed had a secret . He conceded that his career was marked by intermittent steroid use, even during 1998, the year he broke Roger Maris’ single-season home run record. His historic run was unreal . . . literally. My brother was and is a supporter of the unreal — a huge fan of science fiction’s Godzilla. Thanks to him, when I was growing up I would catch an occasional episode of the TV show where Godzilla would take on Rodan (or some other nemesis) and they would end up in these knock-down, drag-out fights, reaping collateral damage all along the way. Once Godzilla went on his rampage, our eyes fixed on the TV, waiting to see which landmark would end up a pile of rubble. We loved it. And when the May 1998 release date of a remake of “Godzilla” approached, even with the baseball season in high gear I anticipated seeing it in a Philadelphia theater as soon as I could find some down time in between games. But then Mark McGwire strolled into town, carrying the Cardinals and the future of M.L.B. on his back, as the bitterness of the 1994-1995 strike finally dissipated. The excitement about McGwire dwarfed even my enthusiasm for “Godzilla,” which was relegated to my “to do in the off-season” list. McGwire was streaking toward a seemingly unbreakable record, not by merely hitting balls over the fence but by scraping tops of stadiums as the ball left the atmosphere. Major league baseball players were reduced to little boys, tasting our childhood once again as we craned our necks to figure out when he would launch another impossible shot. Never in my experience had so many players who should have been stretching stopped everything just to watch an opponent take batting practice.
