THE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, October 6, 1961 Yanks Still Favored But Odds Are Less By JERRY LISKA Associated Press Sports Writer CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP)- The World Series flares anew Saturday after a change of scenery and certainly a chance of prospects for the lightly-regarded Cincinnati Reds in their postseason championship duel with the New York Yankees. The Reds, seemingly well outclassed in losing Wednesday's York Thursday with a 6-2 decision that proved the Yankees mighty human after all. But while the Yankees were playing Alphonse and Gaston with themselves as the two-game New York phase of the series concluded, the Reds uncorked the same type of performance that confounded the experts while they ran off with the National League pennant. opener, came back to life in New 1 Strapping Joey Jay was the BOB PURKEY BILL STAFFORD Yogi Learns Joe Wasn't Kidding By YOGI BERRA Written for The Associated Press CINCINNATI (AP) - Now I see why the Yankees have had so many left fielders. Sometimes you gotta play it by ear out there in Yankee Stadium. But today in Crosley Field, where we work out, I'll be practicing under game-time condi- ditions. I hear you must learn how the balls carom off their left field wall. I'll be practicing all the angles. Their park is nothing like ours. It's much smaller and maybe our hitters will get going if Bob Purkey, Saturday's pitcher, is the fine fellow everyone says he is. Of course, we missed Mickey Mantle Thursday when Joey Jay beat us with a lot of breaking stuff to even the series. Everybody has been wanting to know about how I played Wally Post's line drive out into a triple. It wasn't easy. I saw the ball all the way until it got right in front of me. Then it sank, tipped the end of my glove and went right through my legs. I felt nothin'. 11 never touched my pants. And 1 tould see it clearly without flip- pin' down my sun glasses. The toughest ball to catch is the one hit right at you and Post's shot came out like a cannon. Ai first I didn't think I could get it and I started in. Then when I wa all set I gave it the nonchalant and it sank. It had overspin or topspin, like a topped golf shot . If the series goes back to Ne\\ York, I wish I can take my olc catcher's chest protector into lef field. But, you know, there was only one ball Thursday that I didn't see. That was the high foul Clete Boyer caught against the box seats in the ninth. When those balls get up in that smoke and haze coming from the stands, you just can't see them. You can't even see high flys in left center. I used to grin when Joe DiMaggio said that. I thought he was kiddin'. But he wasn't. * * * Series Facts And Figures By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS W. L.

In upsetting Indiana, which marked the end of a 9-game losing streak, and the Air Force, Coach Doug Weaver's Wildcats chalked up K-State's first two football victories in a row since 1956. Nebraska comes into the game after a victory over North Dakota and a tie with Arizona. Kickoff for the band day attraction expected to draw 20,000 fans is 1:30 p.m. Kansas Stale has had better success against Nebraska than any team it has played in recent years winning 5 of the last 8 meetings. Nebraska won last year 17-7. The Comhuskers has a 25-pound per man weight advantage in its line anchored by 251-pound tackle Bob Brown. K-State won't have a starter reaching 200 pounds, the outstanding player being Al Kou neski, 177, senior center. K-State hopes to move the bal on the accurate passing arm o sophomore quarter-hack Larry Corrigan and thp running of full back Bill Gallagher. Gallagher was discharged from the armj last week and scored the winning touchdown against Air Force. Thunder Thornton, a power run ning halfback, is key man in a versatile Cornhusker attack. By JACK CLARY Associated Press Sports Writer Navy's football team knows it is in for a tough night when it takes on Miami's Hurricanes in the Orange Bowl tonight. But far be it from the hosts to underestimate their opponents. There is a mutual respect on both sides, Navy because of the passing and running of quarterback George Mira and the pass catching of end Bill Miller, and [iami because of Navy's all- round good condition, hustle and ffensive potential. Mira, whose action m a y be mited by rib bruises suffered in victory over Kentucky two r eeks ago, ranks fourth nation- lly in total offense with 394 ards, 305 of those through pass- ng. Miller has caught 12 for 172 ards and is a pillar on defense. Navy, loser in its opener 20-10 o Penn State which Miami lev- led 25-8 last week, showed good ffensive power in beating Wiliam & Mary 44-6, with junior uarterback Ron Klemick leading lie way.
