San Diego rookie impresses

St. Louis coach Red Schoendienst says the best rookie he's seen all year is Padre outfielder Alan Wiggins, who was drafted out of the Dodger organization after he stole 120 bases for Lodi, Calif. in 1980. ''Wiggins might even be able to bunt .300, he's so fast,'' Schoendienst added.

With catchers Darrell Porter and Gene Tenace both on the injured list, the Cardinals are going with rookie Glenn Brummer as their first-string catcher. . . . The San Diego Padres' hopes for a first division finish were dealt a severe blow when second baseman Juan Bonilla, the club's sparkplug, went out for the season with a broken hand. . . . A New York real estate developer is allowing Mets manager George Bamberger and his coaches to share a 15-acre Long Island estate for the rest of the season with a stuffed 14-foot Kodiak bear. . . . With attendance down in Pittsburgh, club owners are reportedly checking out Denver as a possibility should they seek a franchise shift.
