' MONPAY, MARCH H, 1JJJ Kiner Signs For $75,000 Bue Slugger Now Third Highest Paid Star SAN BERNARDINO. Calif., March 17 /P — Ralph Kiner, the Pittsburgh Pirate home run slugger, has reason to smila this St. Patrick Day—he's negotiated a net one-year contract for $75,000—making him the third highest paid player In the majors. Stan Musial of the St. Louis Cardinals and Ted Williams of the Boston Red Sox have better contracts than the Buc slugger who has been writing records since breaking into the majors in 1946. Musial Is reported to be receiving J80.000 this season while Williams has signed for an estimated $100,000. There's considerable doubt whether Williams will collect. He's duo lo take a stiff physical examination prior to being called to active -duty soon as a Marine pilot. Kiner previously said he'wanted a two-year pact to replace the one which expired last year. But he got the raise he was after. He reportedly received $65,000 a year under the old contract. Last season when the Bucs finished seventh Kiner smashed 42 homers and for the sixth consecutive year led the Bucs in runs ' batted in with 109.
