FOR ONE magical season, John Olerud was the Babe Ruth of college baseball. Minus the pot belly, the womanizing and all that beer drinking, of course. Twenty-five years ago, as a lanky sophomore at Washington State, Olerud duplicated the hitting and pitching heroics that Ruth accomplished early in his major league career before he became a full-time outfielder.
