Braves Win As Mathews Whacks 450-foot Home Run SIDELINE By DON TERBUSH -PRE-SEASON ALL-STAR TEAM Baseball, major- league brand, hasn't even left the cocoon yet this spring. But already one 1962 all-star team has been selected. It's the "Cardboard League". that is responsible for some 200 All-Stars before the first official "Play Bawl" has been bellowed. In the form of baseball trading cards, each big league star will appear on some four million cereal boxes. By the end of the season these stars will be the most -traded, most - traveled ballplayers in the world. If the player selection for this Cardboard League is any criteria, the two major leagues are evenly matched -- for the player roster includes 101 from the American League and 99 from the National. Of the 200 players, 62 are new to the "circuit" -making their trading card debuts. The N a t i o n a l League champion Cincinnati Reds have the biggest influx of newcomers to the cereal loop of any of the clubs with six "first-year" men. And the Pittsburgh Pirates list the largest number of holdovers of any club, with 12. The Reds in the National League and the New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers of the American boast the largest representation -- 14 apiece in the pocket packets. For the statistical-minded, the player proportions reflect the make-up of the average major league club. Infielders predominate, with 71 guardians of the base- paths among the 200. There are 57 outfielders, 50 pitchers and 22 catchers. No surprise to anyone is the fact that 1961 individual leaders all made the cereal box All-Stars-- the American League home run king and most valuable player, Roger Maris of the Yanks; the Bronx Bombers' league-leading pitcher, Whitey Ford, and Detroit's league leader in batting, Norm Cash. All five of the NL leaders are on the boards, too -- the league's pitcher of the year, Joey Jay of the Reds, and league- leading pitcher Johnny Podres of the Dodgers; batting leader Roberto Clemente of the Pirates, home run slugger Orlando Cepeda of the Giants, and most valuable player Frank Robinson of the Reds. - But the cereal box selectors aren't infallible. Two players (at least) who won't be playing major league ball-- Ron Hansen, now performing for Uncle Sam, and Rocky Bridges, who has been given his unconditional release by the Angels. Nevertheless, the two are still expected to see action in the swap-and-drop circuit. And the action slump all spring. The 31-year-old All-Star third aseman, in fact, had been bating at a meager .216 clip with 10 home runs while the Braves vere playing their spring exhibi- Burdette Stars On Mound; Chicubs In Win Over Dodgers I!y JOE SARGIS United Press International Milwaukee Braves fans can stop worrying--Eddie Mathews is hii ting the ball again in bis accustomed style.

(UP1) - Don Drysdale, for the first time since the team moved to the West Coast, -.till not be pitching the season opener For the Los Angeles Dodgers--but it doesn't seem to be bothering the often moody hurler. Although manager Walt Alston said that cither.of the Dodgers' .\vo prize lefthanders, Johnny Podres or Sandy Koufax, would ;ain the honor of pitching the 'Irsl game in Chavez Ravine igainst Cincinnati Tuesday, Drysdale went out. and threw three-hit )all for seven innings Wednesday. However, a couple of rookies :hat replaced Drysdple in the last :wo innings couidn't continue the sharp work and the Chicago Cubs scored four runs in the ninth in- ling to edge Los Angeles, 6-5, at Mesa, Ariz. It was the fourth straight loss for Los Angeles by a single run, and all have come in the ninth inning. But it doesn't bother the ;eam too much since their fronl- ine pitchers have been removed From the game by the time the opposition finally gets rolling. It was that way Wednesday as Drysdale pitched seven complete innings, struck out two and allowed only a pair of runs--both homers. Then rookie Joe Moeller came in and retired the Cubs in order in the eighth. But after Moeller walked Chicago's leadoff batter in ihc ninth he had to come out of the game because of shoulder stiffness. TUCSON, Ariz.
