Foyt drivers lead last * practice session at Indy Brack, Boat lead way as drivers make final preparations for race By MIKE HARRIS Tlie Associated Press By The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. — George Will can't get enough of baseball, it seems. The Pulitzer Prize-winning political columnist, commentator and author has joined the board of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, museum officials announced Wednesday. Will, also the commissioner of the independent Texas-Louisiana League, is the author of "Men at Work: The Craft of Baseball." He also provided commentary for the documentary "Baseball" by filmmaker Ken Burns, who also serves on the museum's board. "We are absolutely thrilled that Mr. Will has committed to championing the cause of preserving this important chapter of American history," said muse- INDIANAPOLIS — A.J. Foyt's boys did not disappoint Thursday, leading the way in the final practice for the Indianapolis 500. Kenny Brack, the Swedish driver who was outdone in qualifications by Foyt Racing teammate Billy Boat, produced a lap of 220.994 mph. Boat was close behind at 219.181 in the two-hour session, the only time between qualifications and the race that the 33 starters are allowed on the track. "We got our work done," said a smiling Foyt, the four-time winner looking for his first victory as solely a car owner. "You don't try to overdo anything on 'Carb Day.' You just do what you have to do to make sure everything is bolted together right." "Carburetion Day," one of the longtime traditions at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, has kept its name even though carburetors have not been used at Indy for years. But, whatever it's called, the day is very important to the drivers. "It's not about time and it's not about speed, it's about feel," explained Greg Ray, who ran 20 laps with a top speed of 217.754. "The main thing today is just to get the feeling of confidence that the car is there," said Ray, who will start between the Foyt drivers. All of the qualified drivers made it onto the track Thursday, with a total of 619 laps run on the 2'/2- mile oval. The only problems were a couple of tow-ins after engines quit running. '; '„ Tony Stewart, the defending Indy Racing League champion, was third fastest at 218.999, followed.by Ray, and defending Indy 500 win-" ner Arie Luyendyk at 217.229. . Even though Indy officials cut this year's practice and qualifying, time in half, the drivers said they did nothing unusual in the final practice. ,-v "Actually, I did less than I usu£ ally do," Luyendyk said. Boat, who finished seventh la^fe. year as a rookie, will be the niah in control when the field heads for the green flag, while Brack, who crashed without even finishing"a lap in his first Indy 500 last year, will also be poised to try to lead the first lap. Asked if he had any team orders for his drivers, particularly for the start, Foyt said: "What I normally tell my team cars, whoey- er's running the quickest at th'e beginning, don't be racing, let him go." Will joins Negro Leagues Museum's board of directors COLLEGE BASEBALL: MIDWEST REGIONAL 0-State whips Georgia Tech By HAROLD BECHARD The Salina Journal WICHITA — Matt Smith looked like anything but a freshman pitcher Thursday afternoon. And Georgia Tech looked like anything but the No. 2 seed in the NCAA Midwest Regional. um chairman Buck O'Neil, himself a star of the Negro Leagues with the old Kansas City Monarchs. "His genuine love of baseball, intellect and influence will aid our cause tremendously." Other celebrities on the board include retired Gen. Colin Powell, former Chicago Cubs great Ernie Banks and retired Sen. Alan K. Simpson of Wyoming. NBHESTREBOWU. That combina- Oklahoma St. 13 tion produced a Georgia Tech 4 mismatch as the fifth-seeded Oklahoma State Cowboys strolled into hostile territory - i.e., Eck Stadium — and walked away with an impressive 13-4 win. The victory moves the Big 12 Conference Cowboys into today's 7 p.m. second-round game against Arizona State. Smith (6-3) was brilliant in his seven innings on the mound, striking out 11 Yellowjacket hitters and walking none. "Personal stats are nice, they build your ego," said Smith, "but the only thing I was looking for was getting our team the win." The Cowboy lefty did just that and got plenty of support from his teammates as five Pokes had at least two hits. For Georgia Tech, the game was a nightmare. The Yellowjackets committed five errors and saw their best pitcher, Chuck Crowder, yanked in the second inning. "Chuck couldn't throw a strike, and when your pitcher can't throw a strike, it usually leads to bad things on defense," Tech head coach Danny Hall said. "Chuck was totally out of sync. I've never seen him throw that bad." Crowder lasted just nine batters and four of them scored for OSU as the Cowboys jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead. The big hit was a two-run dou- ble by Steve Hill. Billy Gasparino and Kevin Lucas also drove in runs. "We felt like we had to score ear-" ly," OSU head coach Tom Holliday. said as the pro-Wichita State crowd booed his team at every turn. "We had a lot of respect fpr Crowder. Every person we talked to said get him early or you won't- get him." ;; : Georgia Tech (38-21), which no\v faces Southeast Missouri State to : day at 11 a.m. in an elimination game, cut O-State's lead to 6-3 after six innings but could get no closer. Oklahoma State added three runs in the seventh inning and four more in the eighth to run away and hide. -' [ Lucas had a big game for the Cowboys with four runs scored/ Josh Holliday was 3 for 6 with tvtyp! RBIs and Marc Fournier was 3 for 4 with three runs batted in. -.'' Phelps' slam lifts Arizona State By HAROLD BECHARD The Salina Journal WICHITA — Jeff Phelps picked quite a time for Arizona State's first grand slam home run of the season. Phelps deposited a David Walling fastball over the centerfield wall in the Arizona State 8 bottom of the sev- Arkansas 4 enth inning as the Sun Devils downed Arkansas 8-4 Thursday in the first round of the NCAA Midwest Regional. The victory boosted the Sun Devils to 35-21 and into today's 7 p.m. matchup against Oklahoma State, an impressive 13-4 winner over Georgia Tech. Arkansas (37-20), which fell into today's 3 p.m. game against Wichita State, carried a 4-2 lead into the bottom of the seventh, but couldn't hold the lead. And because of it, the Razorbacks now face elimination today against third-ranked Wichita State. "For us, it was very typical of what has happened to us this season," Arkansas head coach Norm DeBriyn said. "We have some talent, but we've been up and down all year." And to add insult to injury, the Razorbacks left 14 runners stranded. "We haven't been fundamentally sound all year, and that's my fault," DeBriyn said. Phelps didn't have any such problems. The freshman first baseman crashed Arkansas' party with a stunning two-out grand slam that ended a five-game home run drought for his team. "Coach has been talking a lot about us being ready, and I was,''; Phelps said. "I was ready for whatA ever he had. I just put my foot' down and let it happen." . »> Arkansas went quietly in the'.fiJ nal two innings. "The grand slam took the life out; of them and obviously happened at a very opportune time for us," ASU head coach Pat Murphy said. "That was the difference." Aaron Kramer (7-2) pitched 2 Mi innings of one-hit relief to pick up the victory. In addition to Phelps' blast, the Sun Devils got three hits, two runs scored and two RBIs by Mikel Moreno. The Razorbacks have one thing going for them in today's matchup with Wichita State. They are the last team to beat the Shockers — 16-5 on April 28. NU to open against Louisiana Tech By The Associated Press LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska will open the season a week earlier than expected in the Eddie Robinson Football Classic on Aug. 29 — if renovations to Memorial Stadium are complete. The Cornhuskers would play Louisiana Tech, which went 9-2 last season but did not play in a bowl game. Tech features quarterback Tim Rattay, who led the nation in total offense and threw for 3,881 yards and 34 touchdowns. "The players were definitely in- terested in playing in the game," new Nebraska coach Frank Solich said Thursday after a team meeting. But athletic director Bill Byrne added: "We still need to work out some details and the construction issues." Official word was expected Friday. The extra game would give the Huskers a seventh home game and a 12-game regular-season schedule. If Nebraska makes it to the Big 12 title game and goes on to a bowl, the Huskers would end up with a 14-game season. Tennis / Smoky Valley a favorite in Clas 4A meet FROM PAGE C1 has beaten Smoky's Talbott this season. "In order for us to win, hopefully we'll run into Pratt somewhere along the line," said Smoky Valley coach John Bellah. "If we don't beat them, we can't count on anybody else to. There's a chance both our doubles teams could meet Pratt in the second round." Last year, Barclay and Biegert upset Nelson and Palmquist in the semifinals, giving Smoky Valley second and third in doubles. Talbott was fourth in singles. Baldwin's Chad and Blake Glover return to defend their doubles title. In singles, runner-up Jon Suddarth of Topeka Hayden is back, as is third-place finisher Steve Posch of Parsons. Currie favored in 3A Thayne Currie, Southeast of Saline's one-man team, will go for his second straight 3A singles title at Hillsboro. Currie, a senior who will play next year at Wichita State, is the only one of last year's top six state finishers in the singles draw. Gau- tum Agarwal of 10-time defending team champion Wichita Collegiate, won his regional and was seventh at state last year. Collegiate should be strong again in doubles with its No. 1 team of Zach Hawley and Anthony Francisco. Hawley was a state champion last year with partner Preston Jones while Francisco teamed with Brian Docking for third. Last year, Nebraska went 13-0 in coach Tom Osborne's final season and finished second to national champion Michigan in the AP poll. The Huskers were No. 1 in the coaches' poll. "We explained the different scenarios to them, in terms of reporting to camp and practice, and they want to play the game," Solich said. Nebraska was set to open the sea*, son at home on Sept. 5, against Alabama-Birmingham, i The preseason game is named for; former Grambling coach Eddie Robinson, who won 408 games. ' Chiefs to play Pack in Tokyo By The Associated Press NEW YORK — Last year's Super Bowl runner-up Green Bay will play the Kansas City Chiefs in one of two preseason games that kick off the 1998 NFL season. The American Bowl in Toyko will be televised by ESPN. The other Aug. 1 game pits Pittsburgh vs. Tampa Bay in the Hall of Fame Bowl at Canton, Ohio, which will be televised by ABC for the first time in prime time.
