KANSAS CITY OUTFIELDER GETS THIRD HOME R IN 3 DAYS Amos Likes Fenway Park But BOSTON (AP) — Amos Otis, a former Boston farmhand who came back to wreck Red Sox pitching this week, isn't sure he'd want to play regularly in chummy little Fenway Park. "I might get conscious of that wall if I played here all the time," the hard-hitting outfielder said Tuesday after his third home run in two days led the Kansas City Royals to a 4-2 victory and a 'sweep of their three- game series. "Last year I kept seeing the wall all the time and I got three hits here all year." he said. "They were all singles, and if you 'stretched all three out they wouldn't have reached the icenteinflield wall. Yesterday and to-day I just tried to meet the ball and see what happened." What happened was that Otis slugged a homer in each game and drove in eight runs as the surprising Royals swept a Memorial Day doubleheader on Mondlay and made it three in a row Tuesday. Otis originally was signed by the Red Sox but was lost in the draft to the New York Mets. He was traded to Kansas City last year in a deal which also involved another former Red Sox player, Joe Foy. With the Royals, Otis blossomed into <a star in bis first full big league season last summer, playing spectacularly in centerJMd, hitting a solid .284 and ranking ' among the American League's best in every offensive category except homers. Even his 11 home runs weren't bad far a first year, especially considering .the• RACEWAYS Hapes Car Big Winner Big winner again here Sunday night in micro-midget racing was Don Hapes, driving Car No. 16 sponsored by Hapes Trucking. Another good-sized crowd turned out at Garden City Raceways, Inc., to watch the third in a series of summer racing cards. Only two informal motorcycle races were run Sunday Major "bike" rallies over the weekend at Kanopolis Reservoir and Hutohinson drew most of the motorcycles from this region. Appearing here for a visit was Darrell Douglass, Amairil- lo, Tex., in his famed Oar No. 7. He finished seventh nationally last year in point rankings of the National Micro-Midget Assn. Next Sunday's card will again feature micro-midgets, go-karts, and motorcycles. It starts at 8 p.m.. The eight-mile, dirt banked track, is three miles east of town on US50, then 1% mtes south. It is just west of Morris Feedyard. Micro-Midget* First Heat (10 iJips) — 1. Don Hapes, Garden City, Oar No. 1)6. 2. Gordon Buoy, Garden City, Oar 31. 3. CeclV- Maupin III, Garden City, Oar 98. Second Heat (10 I^ans) — 1. Ron Osterbuhr, Garden City, Oar No. 72. 2. Fiianik Morris Sr., Garden spacious Kansas City ball park in which he played half of his games. Tliis year despite that park and a relatively slender 160-poiiind buiiid, Obils has found the home run range too. He has 10 so far, tied for fourth in the league. "I didn't set any goals for home ruiis this saason," Otis said. "The only individual goal I have is to try to hit .300. I figure if ,1 do that, th« doubles and triples and * homers wffl come." Otis is right around his target at the moment with a .295 mark, and his hitting has helped the expansion Royals off to a strong early showing which has them in second place in the American League West. "This is a good young bunch * * * of guys who think they can win every giame -and that's what it takes," Manager Bub Lemon said. "In the spring we were hoping to pick up 16 games over last year and reach thie .500 mark, buit the way things are going so far we're setting our sights higher than that now." There didn't seem to be any reason not to alter bhe sweep of the Reid Sox, who are still clinging to first place in the Amed'cian League East despite having now last four straight games and six out of nine on a di&astrous home stand. "After we won the double-header Monday I said let's just try to do half as wel today," Lemon joked, "and that's what we did."

Sooners' Scott Martin Invited to Cage Trials NORMAN, OWia.

No other gam-as were scheduled. Maddox, one of the bodies involved in the Danny McLain trade laisit winter, was on the beech stricitHy on merit. He had just >a dozen hits all year before Tuesday night. The homer was his first of the year, increased his RBI total to eight and lilted his baibbing average to .177. The Senators were leading 3-2 wihen half of the stadium lights went out while California was baibbing in the 'top of the seventh. The game was delayed 32 minutes because of the failure in the Stadium's high voltage circuit breaker. . Maddox' homer increased Wasfakigtom's .lead to 6-2, giving the Seoaitors enough of a cush- ion to ..• wditihsibaind California's i rally in 'the eighth.

Otis' two-run homer gave him six ranis balftted in in the Royals' three-game sweep of the Sox. Basest-loaded walks to Harmon KMtobrew and Leo Gardenias in the eighth inmkig forced home the tie-breaking rums as Mtanieisotia topped Detroit. Winner Jim Perry started the decisive rally with a single, only the fourtlh hit of Lea Oain. An. error and a walk to Rod Camv, loaded the bases and set the stage for the game- breaking wallks to Killebrew and Cardenas. Jotany Briggs drove in three rum—two of them on a sixth inmjig homer that tied the score—to lead Milwaukee past Cleveland.

Both dealt with track. Both brought up some highly-interesting matters. First was a brief note from Elon Torrence, now with Associated Press at Topeka. Old- timers hereabouts will recall Elon: former sports editor of the Telegram back in the 1940s. He did other jobs at the Telegram, too, Elon was a real sports enthusiast and a booster of athletics here. He has, in recent years, sent me some interesting data about, local sports in those years. . * * * Elon noticed I had been running some season-end summaries of Garden City High track and field. He was sports ed here when Garden had its back- to-back state-champ track teams. In one story we listed the all- time GCHS track records, revised and updated. Apparently through the years, an error has slipped in. Rod Rodgers (in 1960) ond Mike Johnson (in 1962) are listed as co-holders of the 100-ya.rd dash record of 10 seconds flat. "Doyle Cripe ran the 100 in 10 seconds flat in the Hays Invitational in 1940," Elon writes. That would tie the record along with Rodgers and Johnson. The school 220-yard dash record is listed as 22.6 seconds by Mike Heer in 1965. It was around one curve. "Cripe also did 22.4 for the 220 in the same meet," Eton writes. "But that was probably on a straightaway." Thanks to Elon — a longtime friend. We'll haul out the microfilm files and do some double-checking on the matter. These things have a way of getting lost through the years. * * * Second letter was from Syracuse Journal editor and publisher Dick Holdiren. Dick is a former dlaily sports writer and an avid enthusiast of athletics, too. mark and when. He also , tries to give lane- assignments, when he has them. At the • Syracuse Relays (one of the best small-school meets I've ever seen) each individual is assigned a number. Spectators are then given mimeographed programs to help identify the athletes. "One of the things we liy hardest to do is to get the results of an event to the spectators as quickly as possible. Nothing is more frustrating to me as a spectator than to have to wait for results. "I remember the national junior college meet at Garden City several years ago. Sometimes another race would have been ruin before the result of the first one was announced. There is no excuse for this."At this year's High Plains Conference meet f some outstanding athletes were introduced to the crowd before the finals. They included boys who had won state indoor titles, those with state-best marks, and the like. "The fans love it. No coach or boy complained about undue pressure, either." "Another important factor is the starter: he can really keep them moving and make it more interesting. Bryce Roderick of Garden City is one of the best/' Dick admits brack meets can be mass confusion — especially to a first-timer. We at Syracuse like to think we do the best job in western Kansas ,when it comes to running a track meet. We must be right, for we continually get compliments from out-of-town athletes, coaches, and spectators. The Standings By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American League East Division W. L. Pet.

Elliott Printers had both season-high team game (1,165, including handicap) arid season- high team series (3,113). His comments concerned my recent columns about how to make track and field a better sport for spectators. I've had numerous comments on the columns: <all of a positive nature. Dick agrees that many things could be done to make the sport a better one for watchers. Many just don't know what's going on. But he poinlfcs out that both the High Plains Conference meet and the Syracuse Relays have tried a number of such innovations in recent years. They have been a real success The annual conference meet alternates between Syracuse and Lakin: a pair of Southwest Kansas track "hot spots." At the conference meet, Syracuse goes "Olympic style." It introduces first, second, and third-place winners on a stand. "We tried this at Hie Syracuse Relays, too, but it just wouldn't work. The meet has two classes, and time available was limited 1 ." Dick agrees that "a public- address announcer can make all the difference in t track meet." At the two meets <n Syracuse, Holdren (usually on the mike himself) tries to give league and meet records before the event starts—who set the "I don't mean to be a tub- thumpeir — but I do believe we have at least part of the answer to the problem here." ( * * * I'll have to throw in my agreement with Dick; Holdreh. . Though I've never covered the HPC meet, I've never missed a Syracuse Relays in, more than a decade. They really 'run 'em out there. Area meets could do well in "copping" some of the techniques tlhey use to make it more interesting for spectators' and participants alike.
