The voice over the loudspeaker was trying to explain one of them to many in the standing room only crowd of 29.184 who stayed after the game to witness the curious ceremony taking place between home plate and the pitcher's mound. There, kneeling, were the umpires, measuring distances to see that everything was in order --a routine that should have been finished prior to the game but couldn't be accomplished because of the confusion surrounding Montreal's maiden ef fort in the majors.

But while Fanning could do something about the grounds- ieepers not wearing their hats, the mini-skirted usherettes gathering in knots and the organ music not being jazzy enough there wasn't much he could do about the condition of the playing field. And that had been listed by Curt Flood, the ail-stars St. Louis officials went t h r o u g h so much pain for the fans it's a shame they didn't take the players into consideration." Flood said. "I've played on some bad diamonds, but this is the worst. 1 pray I don't get killed out there." Flood's complaint cncerned the condition of the Field, which was soggy and lumpy from the thawing frost pushing up from underneath.

Besides the condition of th* field -- which naturally enough will improve as the weather gets better later in the year- there were only minor problems on opening day, such as too many dignitaries and not enough chairs. The dignitaries were headed by Jean-Jacques Bertrand, the Premier of Quebec, and ran the gamut through the mayor and the club's board of directors and from baseball people such as Commissioner Bowie Kuhn to Stan (The Man) Musial. There were so many of them, in fact, that the game started about 15 minutes late, which helped the workmen complete the installation of the 6,000 folding chairs that had to be used because there was no time to bolt the permanent seats into place.

The courageous young Boston Red Sox slugger, playing his first game in Fenway Park since his near-tragic beaning on Aug. 18, 1967. was cheered for about a minute as the players were introduced prior to the club's home opener against Baltimore Monday. The record crowd of 35.341 then repeated its tribute when he came to bat in the first m- "I had goose pimples all over." he said afterwards. "1 had to hold back the tears. It's pretty tough to cry and hit at the same time." Tony C., who said later he was "nervous and too anxious," flied out and grounded out in his first two plate appearances. But in the fourth inning with the score 3-3, the bases loaded and two out, he beat out a topped roller down the third base line as pitcher Ray Culp scored what proved to be the winning run in a 5-3 victory. "Imagine getting all this ink for a 15-foot hit," he said as re porters mobbed him in the club house. Til take it, though."

"I kept telling myself to relax, but I was so anxious to do something." And how did he feel now that the pressure-filled big day was past? "I'm glad it's over." he said.
