Northwest Arkansas TIMCS, Mon.', Aug. 7, 1972 Into Hall Of Fame Famers To Be Inducted I'COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) S», BascbalKs .Hall of Fame ·opens its doors today to Sandy ·?pufax, Yogi Berra, Early Wjjnn and five other great frames from the past. ·fifthc e i g h t new entries are ttcing officially jhdvlcted into tUe shiine In .ceremonies' near i£lie National'Baseball Hall .of "Prime and Museum while thousands watch the annual, midsummer pageant. 1 Along with Koufax, Berra and Wynn, Lefty Gomez and ij'uck Leonard are receiving the honor in person. Thre. of the new members are being hon ; o r e d posthumously--Ross Youngs, Will Harridge and Josh Gibson. : Koufax, the youngest player ever to make the Hall at 36, retired prematurely from-baseball because of an arthritic left arm. But before leaving the .Los Angeles Dodgers, he established himself as the best pitcher in the game .'through 1066. from 1962 ; 0nce he was able to harness lis fastball and curve, the boy from Brooklyn dominated the National League. He led the senior-circuit in earned run average those last five seasons, winning .the Cy Young Award three times and Most Valuable Player once. 'Koufax struck out 300 batters or more three times, including a record 382 in IOCS, and pitched four no-hitlers, also a record. While Koufax was the golden arm.of the Dodgers, Berra was a golden bat for the New York Yankees. The Yankee catcher had a modest .285 lifetime bat- ling average, but was one of the game's best clutch hitters. Five times he drove in 100 or more runs and in his 18-year c a r e e r , he walloped 358 homers. He was also known as an instinctive catcher and peerless handler of pitchers. Wynn had waited several years for his election to the Hall, despite an amazing career record of 300 victories with t h e 'Washington Senators, Cleveland Indians and Chicago While Sox. James Hylton Wins |a//acfega 500 ^TALLADEGA, Ala. J rlt has been a long time coming, and I think.I-got a message across to a few, people, at least to my own satisfaction. That was the reaction Sunday from perennial also-ran James Hylton after he had won only the second major stock car race of an eight-year career, the rich Talladega 500 "at Ala bama .International Speedway. Hylton, who will be 38 in two weeks, drove a. Mercury to which he holds the'titte across the'finish line half a cat 1 length ahead of Ramo Stott;-? 37, of Keokuk', Iowa, as 68,000;spectators stood and cheered him oh. "I proved that I can build a winning stock car and t h a t I could drive it'as well as anyone (AP) -- else,!' -said the slender blond, Arkansas Travs Fall To Memphis In Twinbill MEMPHIS, Tenn, -(AP) -The Travelers were-; one run away from feeling pains of a doubleheader shutout at the hands of the Memphis Blues here Sunday. . . :... · The Blues beat the Travelers 1-0 and 5-1 Sunday in Texas League baseball action. The Travelers are now 1-2 in the series and 7 J /4 games behind second-place Memphis in the East Division,' · The lone Traveler run came in the first inning of the second game on a hit and a steal to third base by Milt Ramirez. Tommy Heintzclman's infield out scored him. '. : . ·, ;.'. The series continues Monday and Tuesday nights. The Travelers return to Little Rock Wednesday to open a 'series with Shreveport. ·. vho pocketed the biggest first- place check of his career -124,865. In .the other big race of the veekend, at the mid-Ohio Murse near Lexington, George Follmer got his oxyn message across to the dominant Team McLaren cars of Denis Hulme and Pete Revson. Follmer, a replacement for dark Donohue, drove his turbo- charged Porsche to victory in he season's fourth Can-Am road race and going wire to wire at that. Second place went to Jackie )liver in his rejuvenated UpP Shadow and third to Milt Miner in a non-turbo charged 'orsche.' · It was Follmer's second Humph over the McLarens this rear. And Sunday, the Revson and Hulme challenges evapd- ated early with tire problems. Hylton, starting 22nd in the iel.d of 50 drivers, brought his lomemade Mercury quickly in rout and by the 75th mile he vas in solid contention. Later, vhen such notables .as Dodge's Bobby Isaac and Buddy Baker nd Mercury's David Pearson Iropped out for various rea- ions, he gained the lead at the 03rd lap around the 2.66-mile rloval and became the man to leat the rest of the way. His job Sunday was made easier by a five-car wreck that viped out :Isaac's pole-winning )odge and; caused damage to Richard Petty's Dodge that eventually took the three : time "rand National champion out of contention. .Third place went to Bobby Allison in a Chevrolet, fourth to ted Farmer in a Ford, fifth to iuddy Arrington in a Dodge. One Touchdown Enough For West All-Stars LITTLE ROCK (AP) -James McDaniel of Morrilton scored the West's only touchdown Saturday night, but that proved to be enough to upset the East 7-6 in the Arkansas H i g h School All-Star football game here. McDaniel, a 5-7, 160-pouncler, carried 23 times for 124 yards and was named the most valuable back in the game. McDaniel, who is bound for Arkansas Tech, got the West on the Scoreboard first when he plunged one yard for a touchdown with 10:19 in the second quarter. Jimmy Casto of Rogers added what proved to be the winning point. Dennis White of Hot Springs, who was named most valuable lineman, set up the touchdown when he recovered a fumble at the East 15 late in the first period. The East's touchdown came on its first possession in the 'third period. Walter Rowan of Little Rock Hall.completed two big passes in the drive, one 6: 13 yards to Freddy Douglas o! McGehee and ore of 32 yards tx Doyle Cross of Stuttgart, anc then scored the touchdown on a seven-yard run. V ··", Gregory Burl of North Little Rock Northeast made the big gest defensive play of: the game blocking Howard Smith's extra point try. ·" , ·· · · The East threatened once in the fourth period but Roy Pointer fumbled after a 16-yard gain and Graylon McFadden picked up the ball at midfield He was frankly annoyed at having been bypassed earlier. "I.was disappointed the first year and disappointed the second year. The third year I just shrugged it off." Wynn retired in 1963 after 23 years in the majors. A player becomes eligible for the Hall five years after retirement. . Gomez goes back considerably more years than Wynn. He was the stopper of the New York Yankee staff in the 1930s, pitching his best in the. tough games. Gomez was called "El Goofy" because of his sometimes eccentric behavior on the mound--he'd occasionally stop a game to watch airplanes lly. over Y a n k e e Stadium. These actions, however, could not obscure a fancy 189-102 lifetime record. Youngs, a flashy base runner for the old New York Giants, was described by Manager John McGraw as a mini-version of Ty Cobb. He produced a .322 lifetime batting average before dying of Bright's disease in 1S127, a year after he completed his 10th season in the majors. Harridge, who died lost year, was president of the American League- for almost 28 years -- f r o m 1931 to 1959. He guided the circuit through the trying depression years into the explosive 1950s and was one of the most successful of all baseball presidents. Leonard and Gibs'on were stars of the old Negro League, an organization of blacks that existed prior to the breaking of the color line in the majors in 1947. They'll be inducted into a special wing of the Hall honoring players of that league. After the morning induction c e r e m o n i e s , the Yankes played the Dodgers in the annual Hall of Fame game. U.S. Ready To Vault Into Cup Finals BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -- I'lio United Stales, defending 3«v!s Cup champions, primed ts one-two 'punch ot Stan Smith and Harold Solomon to wipe out "Spain today in tlio wlnclnp of lie inlorzone tennis semifinals', And ot the two, it may bo the youthful, pint-sized Solomon v i t h his baseball-bat swing Hint puts it away. The 19-year-old from Silver Springs, Md,, .dearly iws puz- /.led the Spaniards and probably is more feared than Smith, lie 1972 Wimbledon champ and No. 1 in the United Slates. "I'frankly confess: Solomon I lon'l understand," salt! Spain's 'eteran Juan Gisbcrt niter iolomoi\ put him down. Another veteran, Andres Gl- neno, meets Solomon in t h e Irst singles match today with .he United States holding a 2-1 ead after its doubles victory over Spain Sunday, A victory by Solomon over Jimcno, 35. would wrap it all ip in lh ebest of five .-- to ee who g o e s into the finals against 'Australia or Romania. But the balding Gimcno is a clever player ' a n d dangerous enough to solve Solomon's two- landed returns; He heat Smith, of Pasadena, Calif., in Hie opening singles match. Smith and Gisberl - meet in .he final singles match follow- ng the Solomon-Gimeno con- 'rontation. Smith teamed with Erik Van Dillen of San Mateo, Calif., to Jive the U.S. team a powerful edge by defeating Gimeno and "iisberl Sunday 6-3, 0-li, 6-2 6-3. The Americans dominated .he doubles match except for .He second set. when Smith's service went awry and Gisbert began firing rockets over the net. The Romanians look a 2-1 .ead in their semifinals in Bucharest Sunday as Ion Tiriac and Hie Nastase dispatched the Aussie doubles team of Colin Dibley and Mai Anderson C-2, 66-2 in a swift 75 minutes. Tenny Retains U. S. Lawn Tennis Tifle LITTLE ROCK CAP) -- Robin 'fenny of Los Angeles, Calif., retained her title in the girls 14- and-under division of the U.S. Lawn Tennis Association's championships by defeating Patty Schoolman of Fairport, N.Y. Miss Tenny defeated third- seeded Miss Schoolman 6-2, G-2. Maureen Louie of San Francisco, Calif., won the 12-and-under division by defeating Carolyn Donigan of Gainesville, Fla., 6-4, 7-6. Both were un- see'ded. In the 14-and-under doubles, Lynn Epstein of Miami, Fla., and Beth Bondurant of Winter Park, Fla., defeated Miss Tenny and Lea Anlonapolis ol Glendora, Calif.. 6-3, 7-5. The team of Miss Louie anc Sue Rasmussen of Sunnyvale, Calif., won the doubles competition in the 12-and-under division by defeating AlIyson.Ma- catee and Wendy Levy of Bryn Mawr, Pa., 6-2, 6-3. League Leaders BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (AP) -- Gary Player, one of golf's nighty mites, has mastered 'he Monster and suddenly re- )ouped his fading prestige. Four months ago, Player was aating humble pie after pulling vithin a stroke of the lead in he Greensboro Open heading nto the final round, then being disqualified for not 'Signing his ;corecard, which read 67. Today the crewcut South Af- ·ican is the new Professional' Golf Association national cham- lion and $45,000 richer. His sec- md PGA title, his first coining n 1962, will probably reinforce he belief that, he is one of golf's "Big Three" along v.'ilh ~ack Nicklaus and Lee Trevino.

Player Captures Second PGA Player on Sunday. "But it all seems to even out." Player harnessed a balky putter on the key holes down tlie stretch to salvage a two : over-par 72, destroying Jimmy Jamieson's dream of glory and finishing with 281 for 72 holes -- one-over-par at the 7,054- yard Oakland Hills Country Club south course, dubbed "The Monster" by Ben Hogan in 1951. The cherubic Jamieson,. who won the Western Open this year,- bogeyed the last three holes to drop out of a brief lead and end up with a 70 for a four- round total of 213, two strokes behind Player. Veteran Tommy Aaron came iti with a 71 to tie Jamieson lor second, both earning $20,850 of the $225.000 purse. Three-time champion Sam Snead, now 60 and always a sentimental favorite blit/cd the front nine in three-under 32 en- route to a 69, goad for a $9.275 and a share of fourth at 284 with 1969 winner Ray Floyd and Billy Casper. It was the best round of the day, equalled only by George Archer who finished far down-the list. ' Snead, Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, who ended up . with nine-over 289, are the only active-golfers who have won more major championships. When Player bogeyed the No. 3 and 4 holes, it put him one- over, and opened the floodgates for a host of challengers in the early going. At one time or another. Casper, Heard, Brewer, Rodgers, Sanders, Floyd and Jamieson all had a piece of tha lead. But all except Jamieson, a Kalamazoo, Mich., native who lives now in Moline, III., drifted back as Player jerked his game together and began a string-of six consecutive pars.
