Rare Bunt Works By BERT ROSENTHAL Associated Press Sporls Writer wilh the score 1-1 and followei Robinson, one of base ball's premier sluggers, had no hit a sacrifice bunt since 1957-and the way Wilbur Wood's knuckler was flitting around, he didn't think lie would try again for another 14 years. But Robinson, who fouled his first bunt attempt against Wood rapped a two-run double and back. This time, it was because Wednesday tried again much sooner than he expected and neatly executed the sacri fice, paving the way for the Baltimore Orioles' 6-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox. "The last time I bunted was In 1957," remembered Robinson, who was in his second major league season with the Cincinnati Reds. "Birdie Tebbetts was the manager, and he prob ably put the sign on because I son 7-5; Washington edged Cali- wasn't hitting too well at the fornia 5-4; New York downed tune.

American Conference: Central Division 13-PITTSBURGH STEELERS PROSPECTUS--The Chuck Noll revival is gathering momentum. Actually got Steelers up to five wins (they haven't won more than that since 1963). Also had 'em in division contention until final month of season. Kids mil start believing in themselves now.

This is one of darkhorse teams, in AFC, lot depending on how their highly publicized young stars hold up improve. OFFENSE PASSING Like Terry Hanratty the year -before, Terry Bradshaw discovered it's lot different playing quarterback when 240-pound linebacker comes blitzing at you. No one's giving up on Bradshaw's raw talent as a Namath with knees. Hanratty's not conceding him job, however. RUNNING Got unexpected mileage out of Preston Pearson, John Fuqua, 'who had previous shots with other clubs.

good squirmers. For big men, Noll can call on Warren Bankston, Brad Hubbert (if knees are O.K.). Fuqua showed he's capable of having big days. Hating -B. RECEIVING Shook up a lot of people by going with complete rookie corps last year and got away with it.

Standouts were Ron Shanklin as deep threat and Dennis Hughes at tight end. Now they've drafted Frank Lewis as an outside threat, and he could step ahead of all of them. Anyhow, the holdovers should be better with that first year taste of success. Hating--B. LINE Not quite good enough for airtight protection of young quarterbacks.

C. Greenwood's clamoring for more employment. There's lots of heft and savvy in this group, with capable spares. Hating--A--. LINEBACKING Team leader is rightside linebacker Andy Russell, who should start making all-pro one of these days.

Chuck Allen, picked up from Chargers, filled in nobly as middle man and should have one more good year in him. On left side, watch name of Jack Ham, Penn State rookie Perm State. He'll shove Henry Davis to bench. Rating-B. SECONDARY Adequate enough but short of speed.

Except for safety Chuck Beatty, they were all corralled from other clubs in assorted trades and free agent signings, but they've worked together acceptably. Lee Calland, John Rowser man the corners; Ocie Austin, with big potential, is free safely. Rating--B--. KICKING Couldn't ask for more than Bobby Waiden as punter, but could certainly ask for more in place kicking department. Achilles heel of club last year.

Green wouldn't offer any excuses, though.

"Of course," he said, "you could say part of it lias to be the set-up with school (classroom work) and ail," School a Monday, same day as workouts, which makes for a long day for the Cojgar gridders. "Nobody's going to give us six points for going to school," Green cracked, "so we've gotta hump up, that's all." "Maybe we've been too relaxed not lax, but relaxed," Green "Sometimes you can be too relaxed with a team. Some-. times you can kid a group and really inspire them. Others, they think it's a big joke.

We've just got to hump with these, I guess." Towards the end of the workout the Coogs began to get the idea. "I'd say we got their attention," Green said without much humor. And there was some extra-hard running to wrap things up. Thursday's last day of no- contact work was to be something of a test. "We're going to find out if this (Wednesday) was just a bad day, or if they're just not that far along," Green said.

It was muggy out there, by far the hottest day so far. Still, in shorts we shouldn't look that bad." The Coogs, as well as Abilene High, strap on the pads Friday for their first contact work of the season. Cooper will work twice Saturday, its only day of true two-a-days, and Green said they might scrimmage at Rose Park in the afternoon. If you're too old to have diaper It must be something else.
