JOSE CANSECO MAKES LDA TOUR DEBUT IN TULSA
by Russ Pate


SOUTHLAKE, TEXAS -- Former major league slugger Jose Canseco will make his debut on the 2004 Long Drivers of America (LDA) Tour in Tulsa on Thursday, May 20.

Canseco will compete at Tee Town Golf Ranch in suburban Broken Arrow for one of four available spots in the 48-hitter open division field. Thursday's qualifier, which features a modified double-elimination format, begins at 2:30 p.m.

A press conference for Canseco is scheduled for 12 p.m. Tee Town Golf Ranch is located at 7401 South 209th East Avenue in Broken Arrow. The phone number is (918) 355-4727.

During his 17-year major league career, Canseco hit 462 home runs and was named to seven American League All-Star teams. In 1988, as a member of the Oakland A's, he became baseball?s first 40-40 man (homers/stolen bases).

"Long Drivers of America welcomes Jose Canseco to the sport of professional long drive," said LDA owner/chief executive officer Art Sellinger. "Everyone on our tour is eager to see how he will stack up against the biggest hitters in golf. Obviously, he is a world-class athlete with tremendous strength and superb hand-eye coordination. He's yet another great athlete who's been drawn to long drive competition by our sport's energy and excitement."

Tulsa is the third stop for the 2004 LDA Tour, which features competition in three divisions -- open, women and senior (45-up) -- and total purses of $600,000-plus.
