No More Cutting Up for Pitcher There's a Bee in Pete Richert's Bonnet By S.ANDY PADWE NEW YORK - (NBA) Baseball has become such a polite, businesslike game that Pete Richert has suppressed his real personality. From a psychiatric standpoint that could be dangerous. But unless Pete Richert suddenly becomes a big loser it shouldn't be a problem. Last year, the southpaw was 15-12 for the Washington Senators and when you have that kind of record for that kind of team, it can cure a lot of problems—or at least make them bearable. It's like money in a bad job. * * * Pete Richert really would like to be a showman. "Casey Stengel, Yogi Berra and Jim Piersall all have done a lot for the game," he says. "And there certainly is room for more like MING/ Ken Koval cracked 569 in 9 )'Clock Monday Mixed League at Strat-0-Lanes. R. D. Sam- jels stowed 203-564; and Herbert Totty 213-503.

"The game has changed. Now the athlete is a businessman. Every time the stock market' goes down, five guys walk into our clubhouse with long faces. "But you can't walk around with the Wall Street Journal under your arm all the time." ¥ ¥ •» A few years ago, Richert forgot all his inhibitions and put on a show that even had Walter O'Malley, the Dodgers owner, enthused. It was in Seattle and Richert was with the Los Angeles farm club, Spokane. "We were playing a night game." he said, "Giveaway Night, or some promotion like that. Well, it was raining and we had been waiting about two hours to see if we were going to play. "We were sitting in the dugout kidding around and the next thing I know I'm out on the field with a garden can watering the field. The fans loved it. "So one of the guys scrounged around in back of the stadium and found a bonnet with a big bow on it. I put that on, got the catching gear and put that on, too, and went back to watering the field. * * * "Then I wanted to prove to everyone how dry the field was so I crawled under the tarp and came out with some dry dirt.

One of the players came out of the dugout and got in the act by throwing a rope around me and dragging me off the field. "A couple days after, I got a letter from Mr. O'Malley telling me that showmanship never hurt baseball. "I feel that as long as you don't hurt anyone or poke fun at any ballplayer,. there's nothing wrong with it." * * * So far, Pete Richert hasn't pulled anything like that in the majors. "You can't," he said. "Image." With that somber warning, Pete Richert picked up the magazine he was reading at breakfast and went up to his hotel room. Outside, it was raining.

Bill Foster... Owner, Operator CoW in CW, Snow in Pitt Mick, Rog Ride Again By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer The M&M boys strike again. It had been a while — nearly y and Roger Marts finally left their mark on an opponent Monday night as the New York Yankees edged Minnesota 3-2 for their third straight victory since Ralph Houk began his second reign as manger. Mantle hit his first home run of the season and Maris recorded his, second, marking the first time since June 18, 1965, that they had connected in the same game. The Yankee outfielders gained the label of M&M. because of their torrid homer hitting that made them baseball's most awesome twosome in the first lalf of this decade and powered the Yankees to five consecutive American League pennants. » • * Last year, however, injuries reduced their effectiveness to where they combined for only 27 homers and connected in the same game only twice. It was his poor performance season that Mantle referred to Saturday night when he talked privately to Johnny Keane after the Yankees fired him arid renamed Houk as manager. "I just told him that I was ashamed to look • him in thi face," Mantle said, "because since he came here he was the only man I played for that I fell I let down in baseball. "I really feel like I let him down. I didn't do anything while fie was here, and most of the ball club didn't. I still think we have a good ball club and hope we do well. I'm just sorry that if we start going good, he's not Chilly Winds Hit AIC Meet RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (AP) —Most records were never in danger Monday night as chilly winds slowed qualifiers in the Arkansas Intercollegiate Con- 'erence track meet to be held lere tonight. Another cool night was forecast tonight. Southern State's George Erl- quezzo set two AIC records in qualifying for the meet at Arkansas Tech. He ran-the'-iOO/ ard dash in. 9.7 and the 220- •ard dash in 21.8. Eriquezzo had set the previous 100-yard recon' at 9.8 last 'ear. Tommy Maddox of Tech held the 220-yard record of 22.3. The Muleriders, who quali- ied 17 entrants, lost a chance t a third record when a baton was dropped in the 440-yard re- ay. Southern State, strong in the sprints, and defending champion Harding, powerful in distance events, are favorites in the meet. . Records set in qualifying for the AIC meet go on the conference books. here with us." The Yankees are going well compared with the first 20 games of the season when they won only four times. Mantle, in particular, is going well. While he drove in only one run in the first 18 games he played, he now has knocked in five of the 11 the Yankees have scored in their three-game winning streak.' Elsewhere in the America League, California outslugged Washington 10-7 and Kansas City whipped Boston 6-1. Cincinnati defeated Atlanta 7-4 in the only National League game. Cold weather stopped St. Louis at Chicago, rain washed out Los Angeles at Philadelphia and snow stopped San Francisco at Pittsburgh; Mantle's homer was a 370-foot drive in the fourth inning while Maris' 410-foot blow in the seventh was the 250th of his career and tied the game 2-2. Joe Pepitone then won it for Mel Stottlemyre when he led off the ninth with a homer against Al Worthington. * * * Bob Rbdgers and Ed Kirkpatrick .each drove in three runs with a triple and a homer as the Angels made full use of their eight hits. The Senators, who had 14 hits, contributed eight walks to California's attack. The Athletics rode a four-run fourth inning to their victory. Manny Jimene. tripled in One run and scored on a wild pitch by Boston's Pete Magrlni. Jim Loborg later came on and wild pitched another run across.
