Donavan Tate earns veterans' respect


Donavan Tate, the third overall pick in the June draft, wasn't Mark McGwire in his first batting practice with the Padres yesterday, fouling off numerous pitches and failing to go deep in expansive Petco Park. No veterans were grumbling about “the kid” yesterday, meaning the 18-year-old from Cartersville, Ga., showed the proper amount of respect and humility. “He seems like a really good kid,” said outfielder Tony Gwynn.
